Nowadays the left lacks initiative. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall it was widely exceded by neocapitalism. At that time the idea of social justice had no longer any importance. Since then the left parties did not take up a strong stance, they do not demand social justice and they are ambiguous facing the conditions imponed by capitalism. They focus their political programme mainly on identity more than social justice and social class. Their raison d'être will depend to a great extent on the way they can answer the question, is it still today a priority for the left the search for social justice?
