Dialogue for Europe

There’s 150 years separating us from this book and its message. This goes to prove that we’re indeed sharing the same space with Europe, but not the same time… Dialogue for Europe – (pdf)

Conscience on sedatives

The beginning of change will come when everybody leaves their own shadow, shakes off the humbleness and purges self-deception, when we face the populist ideology and wake up as individuals ready for concrete action and a life worthy of a human being. What are the clamps that keep you from going, not waiting for others,… »

Fast Forward

What is it in our air that breeds such resignation and sense of impotence? What is it that makes some fantastic people in this country to speak these self-limiting words?
