• Induced divisionism

    Since remote times and even today, those who seize power defending minority interests need to coopt followers from other spaces to secure sustainability. They achieve that manipulating public opinion, colonizing minds, buying wills, also with repression. They preach to spread hate, fears, bamboozling whoever they can to turn them into fervent defenders of interests that are alien to them. They establish fundamentalisms that obscure what is evident and give way to revengeful champions. At the same time, they need to stir up confrontations within the opponent side by reinforcing contradictions, meanness, and perversions. They finance campaigns full of deceits and …

  • Investment and country project, the concealed

    Some investments contribute to the country project we are trying to build and others harm it or do not influence the selected course of action. It is very risky to ignore this heterogeneity because what is needed is to promote investments that better serve our country project and dissuade those that, in either the short or long run, obstruct the potential for national development. Those who talk about “investment” as if it were something homogeneous and not heterogeneous, do so either for ignorance, simplification, or because they conceal indefensible interests. Not differentiating investors and in what, when, where and when …

Sociologists have a concept that is  worth considering: it is called anomie. Despite its etymological roots, anomie does not mean a lack of norms, but rather their dysfunction. In sociology, the use of the word dates back to Emile …

  • World tax

    One of the chicaneries that multinationals use to increase their profits is the so-called “tax optimization;” one aspect of it is formally implanting their headquarters in a country with very low rates of taxes on profits so as to elude paying such levy in their countries of origin or where those profits were obtained. Certain countries such as Ireland, Luxemburg, Switzerland or Uruguay, among others, have elaborated tax regulations to take advantage of this vein to obtain “given” fiscal resources thus transforming themselves into “almost” tax heavens. The nine tax-free zones (privately owned) in Uruguay and the reticence of this …

    Regarding the subordination of private property to universal destiny of goods Always, together with private property right, there is the most important and prior principle of subordination of all private property to the universal destiny of goods produced by Earth and, thus, the right of usage for all.” (Fratelli Tutti, n.123). Sometimes, when talking about private property, we forget that it is a secondary right that depends on this primary right that is the universal destiny of goods. Pope Francis  “Green things, Sancho …” The British Empire collapsed 70 years ago. To retain part of its global power, it was …
