About this series

Information space is endlessly replete with apocalyptic predictions. At the same time, privacy is becoming more colorful due to globalization and all its gifts in the form of access to goods, travel, freedom of expression on the Internet. A time of private victories and a general crisis. The situation is becoming more and more unpredictable and alarming every year.

2020 has broken all records in this direction. The COVID-19 pandemic quickly laid the whole world on its shoulder blades. In a matter of weeks, all borders and transport links were closed. Everything that gave a feeling of freedom in an instant became inaccessible.

Young and free? – This is a question for the whole generation, for the generation of millennials, which, under existing conditions, is on the forefront and should take responsibility. Now there is a decisive transition from the point of uncertainty to the formation of a long-term vector. You can fall into the trap, take as a basis the ideals created by the predecessors and again crash. Or make a choice, while maintaining your right to freedom of opportunity.
