Christmas 2020: different and inspiring

Christmas 2020: different and inspiring

Christmas 2020 will be different. No big parties in most countries. Christmas is a time to reflect. Maybe we can reflect a bit more this year? What is Christmas? For most of us, it is the time to meet family. For many of us, it is a time to buy presents. To have a special dinner or supper. For some of us, it is a time to reflect.
Dear friends - I want to hug you

Dear friends – I want to hug you

It’s been a while since we’ve seen each other. I wanted so much to hug you or kiss you. To share experiences and ideas. To do things together, to talk, to laugh… The lockdown and other measures take their toll on spontaneity. Anxiety and uncertainty are never far away.
Mobile phone from the Moon

Mobile phone from the Moon

Investing billions in infrastructure and equipment that can benefit a few – privileged – earthlings, while doing little about the misery and poverty so many millions of people around the globe have to suffer, is not how Humanity can save Earth and its inhabitants. Even the Moon has sent some thoughts about this and about mistreating Nature.
Faith, Jesus and election results

Faith, Jesus and election results

Faith is often a factor influencing or determining election results. In quite some countries, Jesus and his teachings are often a factor playing their part. But, if Jesus were alive today, what would he as a peace activist think of the present world and the way politicians, business leaders and people in general treat their fellow citizens and Nature? What do people believing in him or anyone caring for a better world for all think?
Letter to all politicians

Letter to all politicians

Our society is losing more and more of its humanity or truly human content. Everything is done for the “insensitive” money, that is gradually taking control of everything. Everything is judged in terms of its monetary value. This is dehumanizing our society and its people. This trend must be reverted.
From CC virus to world of Peace

From CC virus to world of Peace

It should have been clear by now that this virus has been the result of the way this world is organized: it is a real mess! Cornucopia for a limited few and quite often modern slavery and misery for the rest. Nature maltreated and abused… Who is to blame? Nobody should look for anybody in particular. We all need a new world! A decent life for all people wherever!
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.
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?
Lockdown of banks and fiscal paradises

Lockdown of banks and fiscal paradises

When surfing on the internet there are already plenty of adverts promising you to keep your money safe and away from the prying eyes of the tax collectors. Will history repeat itself? When a major banking group published its ominous advert in 2008 saying that “wealth is the ability to say to the world to get lost”, we felt that the whole system needed to be replaced. Today that urgency is even more evident.
No right to possess nuclear weapons

No right to possess nuclear weapons

Nuclear weapons are the most destructive weapons on Earth. Everyone has the images of Hiroshima after the bomb stored in his mind forever. Just think of the many victims that were vaporized into nothing or to those that died slowly as a result of radiation. Just think of the impact on Nature and finally on the whole world. Nature is one whole and damaging her at one location means damaging her everywhere. If Nature is damaged, all humans are damaged too. They are part of her.
Moonlight in a bottle

Moonlight in a bottle

One of the few things that are still free of charge nowadays is the moonlight. The moon reflects the sunlight to brighten up most of our nights. The moon’s gravity generates the tides in our oceans. These are visible signs of the moon’s impact. Yet, the full role of the moon in all life on Earth is still largely unknown.
Letter to WEF at Davos

Letter to WEF at Davos

Every year, Davos in Swizerland is the place to be for world leaders from many countries. The meetings held there mainly relate to the “state of the world”. But nothing really changes because the main starting point is how to keep capitalism working for part of the world’s population. If we want to really change this world and make every person be treated as a human being in whatever country, capitalism needs to be reformed or replaced. The focus now is on money and finances. Politics and economics should be based on the respect for human values. The respect for people and the respect for Nature are two fundamental values that are now more often than not neglected or violated.
