Historians

Historians

Does history have to repeat itself? Whole nations and its peoples have been sacrificed because of ideas and concepts based on domination and exploitation. Historians can contribute to a better world by showing that domination and exploitation stand in the way of Peace. And also by promoting human values to help Mankind not to make the same mistakes over and over again.
Historic illusions

Historic illusions

Decisions might look historic, but as long as they just help to perpetuate a system of haves and have-nots with blatant social and fiscal injustice, they will only create a temporary illusion of change for the better. Illusions do not last long and quite often precede historic disappointments.
How to get rich

How to get rich

Making a profit is fine, but making a fortune by having your products made by underpaid workers in countries with no or hardly any labour or environmental laws is nothing to look up to. Misleading investors and consumers is not either.
Just do it for me - Humanity

Just do it for me – Humanity

Some companies are putting up advertisements as "just do it for the money". Just doing it for the money is a clear reflection of how bad our present-day society is doing. Virtually everything is valued in terms of money only.
Law and disorder

Law and disorder

Most constitutions state that all people are equal before the law. Yet, reality proves to be quite different. The law has often been twisted by those that have the power and the money to make sure that some people get preferential treatment or privileges - frequently at the expense of others. Clearly the law is up for revision to put the house and society in order. Inequalities are an obstacle to real civilization.
Political kindergarten

Political kindergarten

When looking at politics, it looks more like a kindergarten these days than as a forum where serious new ideas are discussed among adults. In the political kindergarten, real issues are overshadowed by bickering about who will be the next one to lead or about who will have the most power or material riches.
Politicians and history books

Politicians and history books

Some leaders or politicians do not seem to bother much about whether the decisions they take, lead to hardship or disaster. They just seem to want to make it to the history books, whatever the price to be paid (by the general public). This world needs leaders that heed the lessons to be learned from history, so disasters are not repeated. This world needs leaders with a global vision able to see that international cooperation is ever more necessary.
Politics turned sour - economy stinks

Politics turned sour – economy stinks

Reading the news about politics and the economy, we often think about the times when political parties and especially socialism could defend themselves against the often inhuman capitalism. The "magical" globalization has reduced resistance to almost nothing. The media regularly report that prices are going up because of speculation. There is very often no real reason for the price increase as production can meet demand. Once again, politicians are powerless to act against this form of inhuman and voracious capitalism.
Preventative psychology to cure society

Preventative psychology to cure society

Many people today do not seem to fit in our society or feel that way. Many feel excluded from society. This often leads to violence in different forms or to discontent, burn-out, negative stress, suicide...  The question is whether we need to try and "adapt" (those) people to society or whether we need to change society? 
Productivity and profit sharing

Productivity and profit sharing

Productivity has gone up in many sectors. Yet, profits from the rise in productivity have not or hardly gone to the workers that made it possible. Instead, profits have mostly and disproportionately gone to the management and shareholders. This kind of injustice leads to dissatisfaction, tensions, conflicts and social instability. That cannot possibly be what sensible managers, shareholders or anyone else want for themselves, their children or anybody else.
Refugee or migrant for a reason

Refugee or migrant for a reason

Refugees or migrants try to get into the richer countries for a reason. They risk their lives and often pay all that they have to escape from a situation that can hardly be called life. No decent food, poor housing, hardly any work or none, no health care...
Saving a system that will sink us

Saving a system that will sink us

Saying capitalism needs to be replaced does not make you a communist. Summonists are realists and humanists. They understand that capitalism is simply too destructive to continue. It should have been clear by now that money can only provide a temporary relief to financial and other crises. Billions are being invested in propping up the capitalist system.
