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.
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?
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.
Building bridges

Building bridges

Common human values are the best foundation for a strong bridge built by all nations and leading everybody to a sustainable, green and healthy future. Selfishness, lobbying, stubborn party politics, greed, (commercial) exploitation… stand in the way of these values and jeopardize everybody’s future.
Change the system

Change the system

A system that accepts that some bathe in gold, while others die of misery and hunger… A system that glorifies riches that is very often based on exploitation or abuse… No one with the right intelligence and attitude, can accept it. Time for a new kind of politics and economy: summonism and not predatory capitalism!
Colourful and healthy

Colourful and healthy

Most political parties are associated with just one colour. Yet, society and its people are more than just one colour. Common human values can unite parties and people and create a harmony of colours a healthy society needs.
Fair share of the cake

Fair share of the cake

Western observers are sent to many countries world-wide to check whether elections are held fairly and openly. Why not send observers to less developed countries to check whether the western companies active there give the local communities a fair share of the cake? Or a fair deal?
Faith versus religion

Faith versus religion

Faith is often confounded with religion. Faith is the goodness in people and the will to bring it out. Some people seem to worship religion more than they do faith. It leads to conflicts and worse.
First or second fiddle

First or second fiddle

Why do some people play first fiddle? Why do some people play second fiddle? Do some have superior qualities? Do some have inferior qualities? Many first fiddles just have more power. More power because of more money. More power because of the right connections. More power because they are more assertive.
Fiscal paradises revisited

Fiscal paradises revisited

Our idea of paradise is quite different. It is not fiscal at all. We hope our messages will make you get the feel of what we consider to be more like paradise. Maybe the "inhabitants" of fiscal paradises will want to leave them as they come to value other things more than loads of money.
Free abuse economy

Free abuse economy

The free market economy seems to be more of a free abuse economy, where a minority abuses the large majority through market manipulation, monopolies, commercial exploitation, misleading marketing, fraud, corruption, selfish lobbying, astronomic bonuses and fees, tax evasion, theft… This kind of economy also gravely abuses Nature. All the talk about a sustainable future is useless, unless the free abuse economy is replaced forever!
Free market is anything but free

Free market is anything but free

Some economists and politicians still believe the free market economy is the best system around. Yet, the free market is anything but free. Freedom means that we can live our own individuality while respecting other human beings and Nature.
