• Changes that come, would they be for restoring or transforming?

    Global trajectory is loaded with geopolitical conflicts, social reactions against huge inequalities, poverty, and indigence. Opulence grows, unbridled, blind, and alienated. Leaderships represent less and less the majorities and they are part of the oppressing minorities. The planet is more threatened than ever. Is this the sustainability of economies, social relations, and precious nature? Do we by chance grow in fellowship, respect, and solidarity with the most adversely affected? Rage, frustration, pain, abandonment swirl the waters that can make us follow sirens’ calls, replace current submission for new submissions; fatal risks with atrocious consequences. However, there is no lack of …

  • Permanent concentration with redistributive pauses

    Economic and decisional power is concentrated into ever fewer hands, a process that seems unstoppable. However, from time to time, social reactions threaten to push down the continuous concentration. To avoid this outcome, some redistributive pauses are tolerated.

From the pampa, I know well the pastures in several Argentine provinces. I also know the more sparse pastures of Patagonia, from Bariloche to Ushuaia, passing through Calafate and the glaciers. I know that my blood treasures …

  • The concepts we lack

    Unlike birds, human beings fly with roots. Part of the roots is in the concepts we have inherited to analyze or evaluate the world in which we live. Without them, the world would seem chaotic, a dangerous conundrum, an unknown threat, an unfathomable trip. Concepts never portray exactly our experiences, as they are much more variable and diverse than those at the base of dominant concepts. The latter are, after all, the concepts that serve the interests of the social, political, economic and culturally dominant groups, though toned down by the modifications introduced by the social groups that resist the …
