• 2020: deepening the clarification

    Understanding what happens requires passing through information barriers that real power establishes to ignore or obscure facts; they only inform about what is functional to their interests. But that is not enough, we also need to work on our capacity for interpreting what happens because they have colonized our minds brutally, formatting subjectivities to numb and tie down free wills. It is a double critical challenge, knowing and interpreting, keep looking for ways of accessing veracious information regarding what happens, together with interpreting events without the ideological biases that cloud comprehension. It is a stumbling path for our existential trajectory, …

  • Tourism that does not concentrate but social and territorially distributes the results

    There is not just one way of promoting tourism, but different modalities according to how we want to distribute the results of touristic activity. In these lines, we propose a tourism that, at the same time, reinforces the potential of the sector and enhances the social and territorial distribution of its results. In contemporary economies, the more profitable segments of touristic activity tend to concentrate in the hands of large international operators and their associates in the country. Those who locally invest in tourism make it in small or medium ventures that allow them to access more modest results. The …

The verbal fight between an old ignorant American bully—president Trump—and a squab of a French emperor—president Macron—barely served to conceal …

  • Fragmented society

    We want to demonstrate a complex phenomenon that produces the “fragmentation” of most social groups that are treated and treat each other as “discriminated minorities,” that measures or makes it difficult the “constitution” of a “majority” and, thus, produces the political effect of making those majorities have an absolute impossibility of acquiring political hegemony and little possibility of producing social policies. Fragmentation of society is a strategy of dominant power and fragmented society; is the situation of large part of the population, which not only is far from power, but also affected in its own capacity of building themselves as …

  • Reflections

    Regarding liberating education When education is not liberating, the dream of the oppressed is to be the oppressor. Paulo Freire Regarding a politics that pushes the limit of what is thinkable and possible Political work would be fundamental for avoiding that the language with which a society thinks itself would be reduced to the binarism and conceptual poverty proposed by the media. In contrast, we should produce a more intense public discussion that mobilizes not only the tongue of politics, but also literature, music, and popular languages. A politics that is conceived as part of culture and that can push …
