• From savage concentration process of wealth and decisional power to good living

    Not long ago, the passage from concentrating savagery to good living was unthinkable; even worse, it was not part of the collective vision. Today, such option is present because of the tremendous environmental deterioration, overwhelming inequalities, and punishments of large majorities, which are totally inadmissible and unsustainable. Concentrating power and institutionalized greed severely compromised the habitat and generated hates and frustrations impossible to contain without severe repression. Social instability gives way to political destabilization. Today, instability existent within a hegemonic power such as United States (with social and political fractures that world’s public opinion perceived more clearly with the invasion …

  • Good living as country project

  • A historical-philosophical disquisition on our barbarism

    There are countless excellent analyzes on the anti-phenomenon Jair Messias Bolsonaro, predominantly sociological, historical, and economic. I think we must dig deeper to capture the emergence of this Negative in our history. Western reflection, due to the cultural limits of our ingrained individualism, has hardly developed analytical categories to analyze historical totalities. Hegel’s Philosophy of History is full of prejudices, even on Brazil, and has few useful categories. Arnold Toynbee, in his 10 volumes on world’s history, works with a fertile but limited outline: Challenge and Response, with the disadvantage of not giving relevance to conflicts of all kinds inherent in history. The French School of …

    Regarding those who deny the existence of coronavirus As society, we should not forget how many have lost their loved ones without being able to be near them during their last moments.

Ángela Merkel Regarding the role played by fear Fear reduces the capabilities for resistance and critical vigilance. For its paralyzing effect, it is an effective social controller.
