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?
Basta! War mentality should stop

Basta! War mentality should stop

When are most of our leaders finally going to realize that they belong to the wrong family? The "war family" has been damaging our planet for ages. Through violence of all sorts it has dominated the "peace family". It has caused the destruction of millions of lives and of billions worth of Nature and infrastructure. Time to change mentality and to transform Earth into the home for all instead of into the home for a few - always having to fear that home might be destroyed as well.
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.
Beauty is more than just a package

Beauty is more than just a package

What is beauty? Who decides what is beautiful? Marketing makes us believe we need to look beautiful the way marketing gurus want us to. They focus on the package or the outer beauty and hardly care about the inner beauty. Many people feel frustrated because they feel they do not reach the so-called ideal beauty standards imposed by marketing and society. Focusing a bit more on inner beauty and realizing that marketing has a lot to do with superficialities, can help to reduce that frustration.
Dharshie Wissah Water Scarcity

Billions lost

Dharshie Wissah from Kakamega in Kenya took this picture and won the 2019 CIWEM environmental photographer of the year prize (category: water, equality and sustainability). It is a shocking image for most people around the world. The picture shows a young boy drinking dirty water due to the lack of water points in the area caused by deforestation. Lack of clean water greatly increases the risk of diarrhoeal diseases such as cholera, typhoid fever and dysentery, and other water-borne tropical diseases.
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.
