Much has been said about the imperative to cooperate in politics. Certainly, it would be naïve to expect a comprehensive cooperative political milieu at the moment, considering the realities we are in. However, it is also obvious that we should have started cooperating already yesterday. There are always issues that unite, issues that are not bargained by any Armenian or any political party.

Even an unsubstantiated optimist will fail to describe Armenian politics as ‘friendly’ or ‘harmonious’. Similarly, it is difficult to describe the current political discourse as ‘future-oriented’. Ultimately, the ‘new’ keep vigorously rejecting the ‘old’, and the ‘old’ keep scolding the ‘new’, whether the latter deserve the rebuke or not. In the result, the public, which has turned into a mere audience, continues to wonder: “Nothing changes in this world…”. This is the political reality you and I have today, and it resembles a kindergarten well-disguised behind resplendent words.

The tomorrow has always contained delicate hints for the present. There are people, social groups and societies that see, hear and perceive the implicit undertones of the inevitable tomorrow. There are also those that recklessly crash into the vortex of the present, creating new swirls and transforming into a new eddy, without even a glance at the friendly guidance of the future.

In the result, the first type of people, social groups, governments, oppositions and societies act beyond maximalism; they make an effort to avoid taking irrevocable turns; they rely on institutional memory and turn into fine or poor architects of the present that believe that ‘the future is the value added that includes the past’. Therefore, every and each action of today is measured against the vision that change of roles in the future is ineluctable. Every action is determined by considering abstractions, such as “What will happen when I will have to be in your shoes?”. These actions become more inclusive and less fierce, thus earning absolution granted by the future for the future.
