I lived in a better world

Monday, June 11th, 2012

This message is long overdue (cca. 10 years) but this delay was necessary to check and double-check my impressions. This message is for those who never experienced living effectively in socialism and for the few of those who lived in it but missed grasping its meaning. There’s no doubt left in my mind now, when […]

a short list of principles to be written by the Occupy movements in their Constitutions

Friday, October 14th, 2011

Brothers and sisters, a move without aim is just noise, so let’s assemble a list of items to be aimed for, a basic Constitution for a country we’d like to live in. Here’s the list I suggest, most of the items are not new. I’ll leave the arguments for you to discuss. 1. The effective […]

occupy what?

Friday, September 30th, 2011

So you say Occupy Wall Street. For what, actually? That’s the ugliest among the ugliest places in the USA, why bother occupying it? My gut sympathy goes with you, brothers and sisters, but I won’t join your or any other movement which doesn’t ask for something real: add to the Constitution a principle which warrants […]

Julia Sweeney – Letting go of god: one of those very few media events that matter.

what’s killing our civilization

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

There are at least four basic things which kill our civilization second by second, they are related to wealth, property, money and economic exchange. The most urgent actions allowing our civilization (the so-called “western” civilization) to avoid suicide (self-genocide) are: 1. Universally limiting the personal total wealth to the resources needed for a human lifetime. […]

default on your debts, bail out your children

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

Greece should default on the payments of its debts. Germany too. France too. Japan also, as well as U.S.A. and any other State that has become indebted by now. Bail out your children: default on your debts. This is the only way the lenders can learn any lesson about what capitalism really means to the […]

to my friend, the anarchist

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Dear anarchist friend, I believe I am a friend of yours because we have similar experiences and, therefore, we (you and me) use expressions that have similar meanings for both of us: the wage slaves, the consumerism, the powers, the hierarchy, the State, the Spectacle, the religion. Let me introduce myself so that you can […]

I question altogether whether we are individuals…

Monday, October 12th, 2009

..the title is quoted from a discussion between Jiddu Krishnamurti and David Bohm (there are several parts), on the future of humanity, happening in 1983. “Thought is limited”, me is a history, the psyche is stalling, “are we all one, really?”, “inseparable whole, you’re absolutely right”, “we’ve been conditioned”, “in its very nature, thought is […]

social freedom and individual wealth

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Humans will always cherish freedom, one basic reason for that is, for example, that I don’t want anybody else to tell me what to do when I think that my personal experience is enough. But if my personal experience happens to be cheating, manipulating and, thus, exploiting other people, then that kind of freedom is […]

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

tablou’ ăsta, Varujan, cum că soluţia e un soi de capitalism, are câteva probleme majore: 1. postulatu’ agresivităţii naturale a omului omul e rezultatul combinaţiei dintre educaţie şi biologie, asta nu’l face mai agresiv decât, de ex., blond…depinde ce’i bagă’n cap familia, societatea. omu’ are în schimb o proprietate: e dotat cu un creier; d’aci […]
