Among human habilities, only Arts can save our humanity...

 Most human beings have some believing and some ideas about spiritual salvation.
This is very important but it is not what we are talking about.
We are talking about human habilities acquired through centuries.
In Postmodern times, Science could explain everything about nature and humanity.
Science had a discourse about any trace of the human being: genes and molecular biology could answer any question.
Science is still more and more usefull and necessary, but it is not sufficient anymore to account for our humanity.
In the after-postmodern times, efficiency is not sufficient to fill our humanity.
We need something more.
Science can save my kidney, my brain, my body, but not my humanity...
In that context, only Arts can save my humanity.
Some discourses about the human being can only be made by poetry and cannot be replaced by Science.
Maybe poets could have some suggestion for current economic crisis...
