The female body image is distorted in the modern age. Compare contemporary models with the Mona Lisa, who seems to fully accept herself.

We all do many great deeds without thoughts of being paid in the monetary system for it. It's obvious that what is valuable for humans is not necesarly valued by this monetary-based culture. Even more to the point, without the many tens of millions of volunteers all around the world, this system would collapse. In this issue, we will also discuss, in detail, the notion of 'nationalism' and why it is just an 'infantile disease'. We also detail how...

How will billions of individuals from numerous cultures "Bridge their differences" if these two of all people cannot work together or communicate anymore... The ego is a powerful thing to overcome.

+Mark CA Collaboration does not require agreeing on every detail. I may dislike and avoid working with some of my friends and family, but I would still help them if they needed it. I'm not saying that I dislike TVP advocates btw.

And just because PJ and Jacque don't communicate anymore doesn't mean the same for the advocates of the respective movements.

BBC discussion on technological unemployment.
 
From self-driving cars to surgical snakes, the multi-trillion pound #robotics industry can provide huge profits for the companies that design and engineer the bestselling automatons.

But what happens to the human staff whose tasks these robots take on? http://bbc.in/V14Y1m

This is a simple communist propaganda.

Quote from the slides:
"Resource based economy is a "holistic" socioeconomic system that doesn't rely on money, barter...or other forms of servitude"...

Money and barter are the means of free exchange. Resource redistribution by the government is done by force by plundering the able people.

J. Fresco is a old communist who thinks that a computer should replace the government and redistribute the wealth more efficiently. (Who will program the computer? :)))

We can't even release a cellphone operating system without bugs and Fresco wanted to build a system of almost infinite complexity and hook the life of every one to it.

Right..., and "the bright future is just a round the corner". All you have to do is to trust in the redistribution of wealth by the Soviet (committee of communists).

No more communism!
No more fascism!
No more statism!

We need freedom instead.
We need laissez-fare capitalism!
Legalize freedom!

Approximately 90% of rural settlements in Africa now have GSM coverage. Currently, 93 percent of Kenyans are mobile phone users. So how do people without a bank account, pay the clinic or their doctor? By SMS!

We’re developing open source industrial machines that can be made for a fraction of commercial costs, and sharing our designs online for free. The goal of Open Source Ecology is to create an open source economy – an efficient economy which increases innovation by open collaboration.

At Brazil's most famous company Semco subordinates choose their managers, decide how much they are paid and when they work. Meetings are voluntary, and two seats at board meetings are open to the first employees who turn up. You probably now think, that will never work and become a chaos... Well actually the figures prove otherwise...

Coming Saturday is the United Nations International Day of Cooperatives. Cooperatives are important in the world's economic and social development. Based on the principle of cooperation, cooperatives help create new ethics and values in business and economics. The Summer Foundation will therefore join the UN in celebrating cooperatives by hosting a theme month on coops. Our first Initiative is Equal Exchange: a worker-owned cooperative that specializes in fair trade.

What does the phrase "equal exchange" actually mean?

If you and I have absolutely equally valuable goods why would you exchange them with me? It doesn't make any sense.

During any exchange, one must value the other item higher than your own item in order to be able to let go of your item. To value them equally means no exchange is possible!

For example: to exchange $1 for an apple you need to value the apple higher than your own dollar for the exchange to take place.

The term "equal exchange" is nonsense and an oxymoron by definition!

Fair trade???
Notice that an uncoerced trade is always fair naturally. Unfair trade cannot be called a "trade" at all! It's called extortion. A compulsory income tax is an example of extortion. Trade is always fair by definition. You don't need a UN soviet to figure that out.

A worker owned cooperative is called a kibbutz or a collective farm. 90% of kibbutzim are completely dependent on state subsidies which are basically extorted income taxes. They are completely unsustainable organizations.
Most collective farms failed miserably and were never productive to justify their cost in allocated resources in the Soviet Union. Do you really want to step in the same shit twice? Wake up people! You are being lured by the communist "bright future is just around the corner" trick.... Wake up.

Europe has gone completely out of their mind. The UN is now actively openly celebrating the idea of communism. Why am I not surprised...

Those who don't know history are bound to repeat it....

Have you ever wondered why despite decades of aid more than a billion people still live on less than a dollar a day? Is global poverty inevitable or a direct result of government policies, economic structures and corporate behaviour? World Development Movement states that it is our common responsibility to try to change the structures and policies that keep people poor. Why not join the movement?
