"De quantas cidades se faz a cidade e de quantas maneiras se pode apreendê-la? Como apreender o imaginário de Ouro Preto, Brasília ou Belo Horizonte?" Maria Zilda Ferreira Cury trabalha com as identidades construídas para as três cidades que, segundo ela, foram centros do país em tempos e conceitos diversos. Ouro Preto, como núcleo da sociedade escravocrata do Brasil colonial. Brasília como foco de um projeto de modernidade e futuro das décadas de 50 e 60 no país. Por fim, Belo Horizonte vista como uma mediação entre o arcaico e o futuro da igualdade democrática que não se realizou.

Trésors du Burundi ancestral nous plonge dans une époque plus ou loin lointaine d’un petit pays de l’Afrique de l’Est qui, pendant des millénaires, avait su développer des connaissances ancestrales dont le fil conducteur était l’harmonie et la cohésion dans tous les aspects de la vie. Le peuple burundais- car c’est de lui dont on parle- vénérait un seul Dieu « Imana » à travers Kiranga, l’intermédiaire entre Imana et les hommes. Il se rassemblait autour d’un roi « mwami » qui s’appelait « Sebarundi », c’est-à-dire le père de la nation, père de tous les Burundais. <br />Très proches de la nature, les Burundais avaient développé un art de vie basé sur l’amour, l’entraide mutuelle, le respect de la justice et de l’autorité ainsi qu’une vie laborieuse pour tous les membres de la société. C’est un peuple qui excellait dans des technologies respectueuses de l’environnement et de la biodiversité. Malgré les imperfections de l’époque, le royaume mettait en avant une gouvernance unitariste qui donnait la place à chacun, même les groupes les plus vulnérables de la société. C’est avec les apports extérieurs que ce modèle de société a été déstructuré et que le pays est entré dans un cycle de violences sans fin, causant des traumatismes sociaux profonds ainsi que la perte de repères identitaires. <br />Présenté sous forme de témoignage et d’exemples de la vie quotidienne, ce livre propose alors une voie de sortie à travers les meilleures pratiques ancestrales qui seraient ainsi ajustées au contexte actuel de la mondialisation.

THIS AN OPEN PETITION TO: <br /><br /><br />THE UNITED NATIONS HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION. <br />THE INTER-AMERICAN COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS (IACHR). <br />THE HEADS OF GOVERNMENT (CARICOM) WITH REFERENCE TO THE CARIBBEAN COURT OF JUSTICE.<br />AND<br />THE CHIEF JUSTICE AND PRESIDENT OF THE CARIBBEAN COURT OF JUSTICE<br /><br /><br />We need to retard the spreading corruption within our country so that we can return to good social values and not the drug culture, violence and hatred of others that we now cherish. Every government department is riddled with political bias and corruption while every obstacle is place to hinder locals both blacks (mostly) and white from progressing unless we grease the politicians and civil servants hands. Justice is not a way of life and opportunity but if you have the money to pay for justice; legal cost is beyond the boundary of the majority, and then you have to wait between five and thirty to have most case completed.

The twelve chapters of this book are mostly independent scenarios, presented in dialog form, that take a lighthearted look at how political correctness may play out over the next hundred years. First, we see how the victory over gender may yield a denial of personal choice. Then there is an adventure at the outer limits of social diversity, followed by an explication of Hollywood's role as a change agent. We see children learning to play the game of "safe space," and hear about the wondrous human benefits produced by the Endangered Species Act. We follow the religious evolution whereby the nation finds itself populated by Foodhists and Thindus, then find out how the Femocratic majority in the U.S. Senate manages to pass legislation that will increase the nation's female-to-male ratio for reproductive reasons. A short item watches parents in service of bratty kids at a birthday party, and another shows the potentially transformative influence of tomorrow's bionic penis. The book's tenth chapter then sobers up to give a detailed explanation of political correctness: its origin, mission, scope, and role as a driver of progressive sentiments. After an illustrative digression, the last chapter ties together all the earlier references by laying out a theory of gender relations as shaped by male limitations. This covers the overarching power of motherhood, the origins of patriarchy, the male compensatory imperative, the challenge of male self-definition, the role of the male cult, the inability of most males to function as women-without-wombs, and the reproductive threat posed by the demise of gender.

The collection of lectures and publications from the Schumacher Center for a New Economics represents some of the foremost voices on a new economics.​<br /><br />In 2009 Wendell Berry and Wes Jackson proposed a 50-Year Farm Bill that addresses soil loss and degradation, toxic pollution of soil and water, loss of biodiversity, and fossil-fuel dependency. They urged the adoption of a national agriculture policy based on ecological principles, one that restores both the health of our farmlands and “economic and cultural stability to our rural communities.” The bill, unfortunately, didn’t go anywhere in Washington, but Jackson hopes that in the future the 50-Year Farm Bill will recognize the ecological necessity of an agriculture that is sustainable and the need for a cultural transformation to go with it. <br /><br />At the 36th Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures Mary Berry–Executive Director of The Berry Center–moderated a conversation between Berry and Jackson, during which they discussed the urgent problems that farmers are facing and the deep cultural divide between the inhabitants of urban and rural places. They called for a different kind of education, one that encourages young people to return to the land, dig in, get to know the place, and develop an understanding and affection for the land and the people living on it. There must be a cultural transformation, or cycle, that encourages an unending conversation between old people and young people, thus assuring the survival of local memory, which is rapidly disappearing in the modern extractive economy.
