Estranged, by Nemanja Jovanović

“…under the conditions of modern factory production, by contrast, the average
worker is not much more than a replaceable cog in a gigantic and impersonal
production apparatus. Where armies of hired operatives perform monotonous and
closely supervised tasks, workers have essentially lost control over the process of
production, over the products which they produce, and over the relationships they
have with each other. As a consequence they have become estranged from their very
human nature
Karl Marx (Manuscripts of 1844)

Serbia is going through transition process.

These are my colleagues, journalists, mostly.

Some of them I know and work with, for a decade or so.

They all changed. They all lost their spark. They all lost the human touch.

Transition is taking it’s toll. They are underpaid. They are often, unpaid.

Insecure. Unhappy.

They have become estranged.
