7-star versus diamond hotels

7-star versus diamond hotels

In several cities in the world, new 7-star hotels (yes indeed, already seven) are supposed to take luxury to yet a higher level. That is: material luxury based on silver, gold and even platinum. Or materialism to the top. But seven is not the top if we judge by the marketing logic of the modern economy. Well "modern"? It is becoming rather old-fashioned.
Absurdity of classes

Absurdity of classes

Our society is divided into classes, largely based on income. But how has that income been obtained? The so-called upper classes largely exploit the rest of the classes. Capitalism is becoming unsustainable and criminally unfair! Everyone deserves a fair share and a decent life. So, no more cheating and extravagant bonuses, profits, dividends... No more tax havens or loopholes. This world needs honesty and justice to survive!
Abusive inequalities

Abusive inequalities

The elites dominating the politics and economics of our world, often use methods incompatible with the world we all need. A world of peace and justice, where nobody is abused or exploited. And where everyone is treated fairly and given a chance to develop his or her talents whatever his or her social status. The methods used now are often equal to abuse and lead to huge inequalities, discontent, tensions,
AI: threat or opportunity?

AI: threat or opportunity?

Could artificial intelligence be made an opportunity to finally get rid of domination, exploitation, manipulation and excessive greed? Could it stimulate our leaders to reduce their lust for power and money and make them cooperate? Could it create a better world where all human beings and Nature are respected in a global project of peace, humanity and justice?
Basics

Basics

Schools teach children many historical details. Why not leave out some details and teach them the basics to make this world a better place? Emphasizing basic values, like honesty, solidarity, respect for people, Nature care, tolerance and non-violence, would make it possible to avoid many of the historical failures being repeated.
Beacon for life

Beacon for life

Our society is very complicated. It is often unfair and unjust. It often lacks a beacon. Many people get lost in it. They cannot see a beacon. Human values are such a beacon. It makes society strong and people feel they belong.
Beloved world

Beloved world

All over the world people are fighting and killing each other for political, economic and religious reasons. Why destroy lives? Why destroy Nature? Why destroy oneself? To defend an imperfect system? To gain more power or money? Or to gain more happiness?
Big heart

Big heart

Money does not make you rich or worth more than the poor. True riches have nothing to do with money, but with the size of your heart. The more you care about others and Nature, the bigger it gets and the richer you are.
Biggest profits ever

Biggest profits ever

Companies like to boast about their biggest profits ever. Peace wonders how these profits were made. Did the companies respect their employees and clients? Did they respect their suppliers and Nature? Did they not resort to market manipulation, consumer exploitation, selfish lobbying and other stratagems? Big profits often have a low human value equivalent.
Blaming others

Blaming others

When things go wrong, it is easy to blame foreign countries, foreigners, people belonging to a different social, cultural or religious group… Why do people not look more at themselves or at their own group? Why not try and find common ground to work together and to build a future that is better, more just and fair for everybody? Blaming others is easier than looking in one’s own heart.
Born friends - made enemies

Born friends – made enemies

All babies are born friends. They do not care about money, race, religion or the colour of their skin. They want to live in peace. Why do politics, economics and religions make many of them into enemies of one another? Why do they make such a mess of it all? Because they lack human values or peace!
Brexit - exit to what?

Brexit – exit to what?

The UK has decided to leave the European Union. Some leaders are jubilant and ecstatic about it. Yet, they should not because we all need a future of international co-operation and dialogue to build a world of stability and peace. Then we can all be jubilant and ecstatic and enjoy a life of less worries and more quality.
