We simply cannot accept this anymore

Judeo-Christian tradition, and so is preached by the Catholic Church, sustains the belief that each newly born human being, carries with her/him a sin she/he has not committed; judged guilty even before they start breathing. Just for being alive.

Governments are setting up a system by which, each newly born human being, has a debt she/he hasn’t asked for, and that will bond her/him to commitments she/he hadn’t consent, just for having been born.


La tradición Judeo-cristiana, y así lo predica la Iglesia Católica, sostiene la creencia de que cada ser humano recién nacido, trae consigo un pecado que no cometió, es culpable, aún sin siquera haber empezado a respirar. Únicamente por vivir.
Los gobiernos están montando un sistema por el cual, cada humano recién nacido, trae consigo una deuda que no contrajo, y que lo atará a compromisos no asumidos por él, únicamente por haber nacido.

New Year is near (haha, sounds nice…).

Time to frame resolutions.

You might not achieve your resolutions, but if you don’t even think about them, where to focus your energy, to spend your efforts, forget it, you’ll never get there by chance.

So, what’s our purpose in life?

We can have the mystical approach and think that we are part of Nature, of Life as a universal force, that has no owner but God (ok, I’ll give you that one), that we are just a tiny grain of sand in a giant and magnificent dune. That we share that genetic code together with the rest of the Universe, being it minerals, plants or animals.

But the thing is that I would like to ask you a question:

Would you resign so easily your life, if you were told that it’s not Nature or the Universe you’re contributing to, but the huge, immense bank accounts of a few, instead? Even the most basic structures in Nature, struggle for the survival of the species and not the individuals. We are the only species on Earth, that have perverted this principle. Contain your rage, we are coming to a very special time of the year… Let’s give it a second (and calmer) thought.

I’m quite happy with my two purposes for 2013, one personal, the other social:

1.- Keep it simple, and starting to achieve my purpose, that’s it.

2.- I’ll rather live fighting than die acquiescing. And now, again, back to purpose 1.

I have a gift for you, although many of you might have probably seen it already.

And wages as a percent of the economy have hit an all-time low.

“The most important issue in this year’s election is the economy.

 Unfortunately, this topic has now been “politicized,” which means that you can’t talk about it without being instantly cheered or jeered by fans of each respective political team.

But the economy is much more important than this year’s election or either political team.

And both teams are responsible for the mess we’re in–and so, I am sorry to say, are the rest of us.

And fixing that mess is going to take decades, regardless of who’s in power.

But we have to fix it. Or we’re going to become a nation of a few million landed aristocrats and 300 million serfs.

The first step is getting past the political blame-game and understanding what’s wrong.

So let’s go to the charts >
