world of peace and harmony

This is a little song to follow you and me

It is a song for peace and harmony

A happy tune to save in our world of phantasie

A better place for you and me

I see a world of peace and harmony

It´s not too late to plant a tiny little tree

And stop destroying our land and sea

We have to save in our world of phantasie

A better place for you and me

I see a world of peace and harmony

Oh let us care for everything that has to grow

There is a… Continue

Binary economics

In my previous blog "The Wealth of Families" I tried to use capitalism to support the notion of charitable family trusts. That was a misguided adventure. Many thanks to Dipak Dholakia for making several excellent points regarding that blog. Adam Smith wrote "The Wealth of Nations" long ago. In todays world, Adam Smith offers nothing for either nations or families. In America, all colleges and universities still teach sudents that there are only two kinds of economic systems: the "free"… Continue

The Wealth of Families

It is generally agreed that the writing of Adam Smith (The Wealth of Nations) serves as the rational and moral basis for capitalism. Let us suppose that another writing came along - "The Wealth of Families." Suppose further that this new writing was not actually new, but that it was simply a plagiarism of Smith's work with the term "nation" replaced by the term "family", wherever it appeared in the text. Accepting that every nation had limited amounts of people, water, arable land, mineral… Continue

A dream to share

Going through the text lines of the famous speech "I have a dream" i have noted the following...

"...I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.

......

And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every… Continue

In contrast to Capitalism, under the leadership of Lenin, a counter move was started. It was called Social Democracy. The begining was in 1917 and Russia was the leader.

A Swadeshi Economy....Village Uplift Industries

I have a dream to start a NEW economy for women which will compete on the open markets in direct competition with products made by employees of factories presently operated by small business owners or companies for the purpose of PROFIT to a business owner or a company and its shareholders.

The reasoning behind the obvious future success of such a venture is that the products will be able to be sold at a very competitive price advantage because our motivation is not one of profit for a… Continue

The Poor and Underprivileged

I read a lot of comments about Gandhi's philosophy.

Gandhi saw the word philosophy as being pretentious and said that all he had done was to conduct experiments in both Truth and Non Violence on as large a scale as possible, he admitted that sometimes he had made mistakes but that he had learned by those mistakes and most often would do Penance for those mistakes. He always held fast to the fact that TRUTH can never be sacrificed or compromised for any reason whatsoever.

People are… Continue
