• Ignominy: migrants thrown out of the world

    What would we do if we lived in a pauperized country, with undernourished families, without health care, with its security threatened, poor access to education, with no exits apart from criminal gangs? Perhaps we would stay to survive and suffer or we would try to migrate, baring life risks, violence, abuses, disdain and inequities? If that ejector force were the result of the exploitation suffered by the country, where we were born? How would we react if we saw that the resources that had been taken away capitalized opulent societies and merciless local accomplices? Alternatively, is it that they do …

  • It is the political economy and much more

    During 1992 electoral campaign, it was recommended to Bill Clinton that he focused more on the economy than his opponent, George Bush (father). There comes the phrase “the economy, stupid” that helped him become president of the United States. However, the “economy” applied by Bill Clinton did not distribute the results of growth with equality, but rather it accelerated the concentration of wealth and decisional power.

It is worth analyzing what is behind the repetitive failure. ______________________________________________________ Different theories exist regarding the place of repetition in history. One categorically denies it. It comes from the English empirical and anti-rationalist tradition, whose most distinguished representative was David Hume. Another, which comes from the old Bourbon Naples, considers history as a large swivel wheel where all events repeat themselves. Its most famous author is Giambattista Vico. His final phrase captured the idea and made him famous: corsi e ricorsi (courses …

  • Do we have enough time and wisdom to avoid catastrophe?

    Human being is perfectly capable of an imprudent and insane behavior; from now on, we may fear all, absolutely all, even the annihilation of human species.  On August 8, 2021, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published its report, which is made every two years, on the Earth’s climate situation, the result of the research of more than one hundred experts from 52 countries. Never has the document been as clear as it is now, unlike previous reports. It was previously stated that it was 95% certain that global warming was anthropogenic, that is, of human origin. Now, it is supported without …

  • Reflections

    Regarding the feeling of belonging to an ecosystem As the world is ruled from towns where men are cut off from any form of life other than human, the feeling of belonging to an ecosystem is not revived. This results in a harsh and improvident treatment of things upon which we ultimately depend, such as water and trees. Bertrand de Jouvenel Regarding wetlands What a law regarding wetlands can do is determining the load capacity of the ecosystem, which activity and with what intensity each wetland can be used. Obviously, some will be very fragile where nothing could be done …
