and some other things

Solidarity has nothing to do with altruistic self-denial. In materialistic terms, solidarity is not about you, it’s about me. Like love, solidarity is not about altruism: it is about the pleasure of sharing the breath and space of the other. Love is the ability to enjoy myself thanks to your presence, to your eyes. This is solidarity. Because solidarity is based on the territorial proximity of social bodies, you cannot build solidarity between fragments of time.
