True peace - by Ted Rudow III, MA
True Peace Although peace has been the goal of mankind for thousands of years—and the desire for peace is never so great as it is at Christmas—it seems that our ability to find or establish peace continues to elude us. Today, after the end of the Cold War, bloody hostilities continue on nearly every continent, reaching global proportions once again after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 in New York City, Washington, D.C., and near Pittsburgh.

Police Brutality and the American Inquisition - by Steve Conover
In addition to looking into why Police brutalize drunks, we also should look into why police and corporations also are so supportive of AA/NA. I think I know why, such drunks then have to admit it was all their fault, they are powerless, god will make them a better employee and citizen, and god will remove their desire to drink. btw, to get food stamps and GA these folks are forced to attend AA/NA. And the really sad thing is that this American Zeitgeist is rarely questioned, as if there i...

Economics is Onesided and Reactionary - by Conrad Schuhler and Rudolf Hickel
The homo oeconomicus cannot be our hope and is not desirable or future friendly. The economic benefits for the capitalist entrepreneur are in contradiction to nature and to the person. We do not need a homo oeconomicus but an economic actor for whom the human factor and not economic advantage is most important in his/her economic actions... We face completely oversized financial markets today that have uncoupled from the real economy creating value. In 2010 the volume of financial transacti...

For a Different Economics - by Jacob Hafele and Benedict Weihmayr
Economists are criticized everywhere for their onesidedness, their focus on markets and their inability to deal with the burning problems... From the neoclassical assumptions that "more is better" or markets lead to efficient distribution, a perspective on the world results that sets efficiency above justice and maximization of profits above protection of the environment...The focus on the market and efficiency dominates the discipline.
