image Indigenous Land conflict in Brazil – Support needed NOW 120_p3210136.jpg original image ( 1632x1224) - by Ardaga - Huu-té Dschaam Dscheu
The once ~5 to 6 million Indigenous People in Brazil are down to less than 1 million. And those brave survivors of a genocide machine of half a millennium are still being brutalized and deceived by state and parallel authorities. And while the media reports nothing on it, Indigenous people are fighting for survival, their legal lands and against spree killings right now. This is a brand new eyewitness report. And a plea for YOUR support!

text Growth Criticism and Social-Ecological Transformation - by Norbert Reuter
Unlike a chair, an idea can be shared by a whole people. Words can be like spears breaking the frozen soul (Kafka). Economics as taught today is like brainwashing. Incentives for investing in the real economy are necessary after the phase of credit-bubble prosperity, after the inflation of the financial sector and the repression of alternatives and economic ethics. Possessions can possess us. A de-growth economy, an economy with low or no GDP growth, can be a future-friendly economy.

text TTIP: Trifling Economic Advantages at the Cost of Democracy and the Public Interest - by Werner Raza and Heribert Schmitz

We all know our planet can only survive when we do everything in our power for a sustainable economy in all areas.

text George Orwell in the Government - by Albrecht von Lucke
Writing in 1948 off the coast of Scotland, George Orwell foresaw the time when war would become a domestic necessity to divert the people from economic contradictions. Newspeak is used so lies are called truth and slavery is called freedom. Public squalor exists alongside private affluence. Lobbyists write laws and representatives spend their time fundraising, dialing for dollars. Private losses become public losses as risk managers turned out to be risk creators.
