• Large players and subdued majorities

    The world is still in turmoil, thousands of outbreaks are in flames and, from time to time, they moderate; but they are never extinguished. Large players cling to the global cox; they are central countries and large economic conglomerates that determine planetary destiny like non-elected emperors. The imposed trajectory privileges a 10% of the world population and punishes the rest. Such “rest” refers to large population majorities, some subdued with direct repression or repressive deterrence and others through colonization of their minds to bring them closer to their victimizers.

  • First, decisional sovereignty

    It is a decisive factor to exercise decisional sovereignty. What conditions sovereignty and why we should exercise it? Decisional sovereignty means exercising the ability a country has to decide what better serves general wellbeing and protection of the environment, without ignoring the restrictions and potentialities of the national and global context.

  • Distribute work

    If every able citizen were incorporated to work adding value to the community, social justice would be guaranteed from the beginning, without having the huge challenge of chasing those who have the resources, to give back part of them.

  • Reflections

    Regarding the perplexity Perplexity is the beginning of knowledge. Friedrich Nietzsche Perplexity: consternation or hesitation regarding something Regarding the yearning for justice The transfer of generations that have had the will to change the world, the vision over present wills that had failed before, can be received as a treasure by those who follow and do not accept the inexorability of injustice. Not to repeat experiences but precisely not to do so, and thus honoring what should never be abandoned in history: the yearning for justice. Diego Tatián Regarding words Of all the tools we have invented, undoubtedly words are …
