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.
Avoiding taxes

Avoiding taxes

Legal ways to evade/avoid taxes? Legal may be legal for some people or for some groups of people or in some countries, but totally inconsistent with what should be the "Global Peace Charter".
Basta! Capitalism is too enslaving

Basta! Capitalism is too enslaving

Consumers are complaining about rising prices. Some foodstuffs cost ever more. Fuel prices are soaring. Health care becomes more expensive… Many producers are also complaining. Often they get minimum prices for their products or raw materials. Especially in less developed countries. Why are prices going up? Why are producers paid little for their produce? Who is behind this unfair economic system?
Bathing in gold - offshore retreat

Bathing in gold – offshore retreat

Golden cars and shirts, bathing in gold... And an offshore retreat to hide your money. Seen through the eyes of Peace, it really does look absurd, especially when the huge contrasts between haves and have-nots in this world are often built on a lack of respect for human values.
Celebrities and marketing

Celebrities and marketing

Celebrities help to market products that are often without much value. Marketing makes people believe that by buying those products, they will look like those celebrities.
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 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. 
Free market: anything but free

Free market: anything but free

Most 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. The present free market does not show enough respect. Many people are the victims of the whimsical selfishness and greed of those having economic power over them.
Games: violence as entertainment

Games: violence as entertainment

Many (video-)games today are focused on war and violence and have little to do with edifying human values. They actually freeze human warmth. They often aim at maximum virtual destruction of people and material. Life seems to be worth just a few cents or nothing at all in their world.
