12/07/2018 - The universal receipt for success

Some people are concerned to prepare themselves against eventual disasters, lootings, social instability, in short, preparations for a dystopic scenario. Survivalists, or preppers, acquire emergency medical and self-defense training, stockpile food and water, prepare to become self-sufficient, and build structures (e.g., survival retreats or underground shelters) that may help them survive a catastrophe. This movement has become more and more popular and actual, especially in North America.


In some cases, these preppers are trespassing the limit of being paranoid, using their daily life for preparations of a future eventuality. That is not an efficient use of time. On the other side, to ignore the risk of collapse of a lot of...


Experts are distressed at the possibility of AI robots being developed for malicious purposes and claim it could lead to a third revolution in warfare. It is an issue troubling some of the greatest minds in the world at the moment, from Bill Gates to Elon Musk. Super intelligent machines could rather use humans instead of we using them. Professor Stephen Hawking said it is a 'near certainty' that a major technological disaster will threaten humanity in the next 1,000 to 10,000 years. As well as posing a threat to our jobs, other experts believe AI could 'go rogue' and become too complex for scientists to understand. 'Eventually, I think human extinction will probably occur, and technology will likely play a part in this,' DeepMind's Shane Legg said in a recent...

09/07/2018 - What neoliberalism brings

If we think of history not as an ascending spiral of human advance, but an unending cycle in which changing knowledge interacts with unchanging human needs, where freedom is recurrently won and lost in an alternation that includes long periods of anarchy and tyranny,  then we could say that something is happening now that is the opposite of liberty. The dream of free borders, free trade and free movement is in decline. There is a shift towards inwardness and isolation, triggered by the own neoliberalism and its praised global free marke, backed up by some of the central currents in Western thinking.


Human nature, is an inherent obstacle to cumulative ethical or political progress. Seeming improvements, if there are any, can very...

05/07/2018 - UTOPIA

For thousands of years, man has dreamed of creating some kind of Utopia. A society where all can be free and happy. One person’s Utopia can be vastly different from another. Some are simply a society where we all live free, while others a fully communist. And there have been dozens of attempts to create Utopian communities in history. To my knowledge, they have all failed.


In many cultures, societies, and religions, there is some myth or memory of a distant past when humankind lived in a primitive and simple state, but at the same time one of perfect happiness and fulfillment. In those days, the various myths tell us, there was an instinctive harmony between humanity and nature. People's needs were few and their desires limited....

04/07/2018 - The Tower of Babel and Globalism

Too big to fail? 

No !

Too big so it fails.

In Genesis chapter 11 we can read about how people gather as many as they can in a place to build a tower as high as possible. The tower of Babel is a clear sign of man's betrayal against Nature (or God) and that we rather strive towards all power and treasure for ourselves, instead of  follow Nature's law and contribute to balance and harmony in the World.


The tower of Babel failed. It was constructed by workers speaking the same language or not, they were easily forced to finish it to the last brick, before it fell down to Earth by the own weight. A big idea, but too big for reality....
