• Blindness, end of cycle, new courses

    Neoliberal domination is approaching the limits of its reproduction. So much has been destroyed with the impious concentration of wealth and decisions that the peoples of the world and the own Planet can stand no more. Inequality, poverty, indigence, environmental destruction lead to the implosion of the model of society and world that has been imposed on us. The walls that support it are cracking; popular frustration and fury, billions of people punished and cornered up without future. Desperate migrations that will not cease in their intent to reach central countries without the development of their places of origin; fragmentation ...

Therefore, I ask, in what type of society do we live in, which democracy we have that the corrupt live in impunity and the hunger of the people is considered subversive. Ernesto Sábato   Regarding democracy and ideology of “making money” The ideology of “making money,” of winning at any cost, is putting the universal value of democracy at risk. Now it seems that we cannot ...
