Chapter V


The afternoon continues on, from the inside of the warm café, the four friends watch the rain fall to the ground, people racing around on the sidewalk and the headlights of ongoing cars flashing up against the damp windows. The conversation takes a new direction, going from religion, being the main character of the previous chapter to politics and the economy. Going from the spiritual world and its reflection on the customs and culture of the Islamic world, we now speak of the powers that move reality, most of them masked under respect, masks that hide the true masters, those who maintain a complicated and difficult balance of power regarding the many social tensions that emerge throughout the planet.

 The economy, politics, relations between countries, between areas of influence, allies and enemies… all of these matters are discussed by the four friend, offering their own points of view, opinions and making clear that there is a reality to which little attention is usually paid.
