• Will we be able to emerge strengthened from the crisis?

    The pandemic and its aftermaths of suffering are a lesson for a society that until recently preferred amnesia and numbing the wills. It is time for union of punished peoples, of growth in clarification and organization. To emerge strengthened from this crisis that overwhelms, it will be necessary to reinforce determination and explore new paths, better trajectories. In this issue, we add an analysis about the social and economic costs of ignoring the tremendous situation that prevails in almost every prison of the region.

  • Paths for exiting the crisis

    To emerge strengthened from the crisis, national sovereignty must be reinforced, drainage of the country’s wealth should be closed, and the economy ought to be orientated towards general wellbeing and protection of the environment. Many and diverse are the challenges to address for emerging strengthened out of the double crisis, economic and health. We will consider the economic challenges, but first it is worth recognizing that every construction is subordinated to the political support that might exist to transform the cascade of negativity that subdues and overwhelms. At the same time, in democracy, political support is based on the social …

  • Social and economic costs of hiding prisons under the carpet

    There are facts that we tend to “hide under the carpet.” Such is the case of every type of abuses and submissions, precariousness of some certain sanitary systems, persons that live in the streets, impoverished neighborhoods, shantytowns, “slums” and favelas, as well as prisons. In all these situations, misery, abandonments, and indignity coexist with thousands, millions of people cornered up in adversities, alienations, and distress, diverse aggressors with families seeking to survive (how presumptuous!), many anonymous heroisms, sterilized talents. These complex realities frighten, are little known, and in large part misunderstood. What we do not see, does not exist, until …

  • Reflections

    Regarding the planned obsolescence In production, the theory about “planned obsolescence” rules. Most of what is produced has its days numbered. Objects are made to last a certain time. Thus, the consumer can buy new ones, in an endless repetitive chain. We live in a society for mass consumption of the same things that we must rebuy. Mario Rapoport Regarding a dangerous stupidity What is really visible is the virus we know kills 5% or less of the affected, almost everybody over 65 years. You have the right not to believe. You can throw a “contagion party” as it is …
