Mr President (Mr Director, Mr executive, Mr Teacher, Mr Doctor...) tear down this wall...


World is full of people that are too much occupied owning the world. They have no time to think about the right of people. They don't value the idea of justice. They say: "the world is an injust place, you should get used to this fact" and then, they go back to their main matter: to own the world.
I'm the president. I'm the most powerfull. I'm the leader of the world. This realities are useless if this powerfull person doesn't use his (or her) power to improve people's life. A powerfull person that works only for his own interest is an useless person. He one day will die, and he will discover himself with empty hands.
"I can't change the world", say many people, and therefore they don't change the world. If we don't try to improve the life of everybody, life hasn't sense.
For centuries we have belonged to violent nations that have humbled the world. The Spanish crown destroyed cultural values of the America that flourished before Colon's adventure, they thought that they had to convert indigenous to christianity and they believed that all about the life of indigenous was wild and pagan. Many american nations were destroyed. In north america there was the same problem with english and irish settlers and indigenous people of meadows and mountains. Around the world, slavery was an attractive business. In Barcelona many people won a lot of money, hunting persons in Africa to sell them in America later. Slavery was a legal business. Legality was blessed by religious powers. Legality was an absolute value. The idea of goodness or badness had to be tied with the legality of powerful people. The world changed slowly, but today world still languishes in an dark ocean of injustice and strategical interests. The old ideals of young people, quickly dissapear.

 I ask everybody to embrace the dream of changing world. If everyone changes his (or her) little part, everybody will be able to change the whole world. We must feel the feelings of the others, the feelings of the different people, the feelings of the different cultures, the feelings of the minorities, the hapiness of the little people. We must love the hapiness of the people who live far of us as good as we love the hapiness of people who live near of us.

Order is not enough

Order is not enough.  If the order appears because of the repression...  If there's no freedom, what will the life be like?  Safety, order, uniformity, silence, urban harmony, richness, dominion... What are those goals for... if we are not free to dream, fly,  change the life, overcome all that is established, run away from routine, seek a newer world?  What would our prestige be for if we were'n able to sit on a beach and sing a song to the sunset in a warm summer night? What is our elegant suit for if it denies us the pleasure of feeling the wind, the sand, the sun, the water... in our whole skin?  What is our life for if we don't experience surprise?  It doesn't do any good to grab gold chains if they are heavy and ungrateful.  We are born to be free.

Nudity is not promiscuity. Naturists are not swingers.

Many people confuse nudity with sexuality; but human sexuality is present in all parts of human body, not only in the covered areas.
In my case, I defend the exercise of a responsible sexuality within the family. I believe in freedom, of course, and everyone can do what he wants, but in my personal life, sexuality belongs to family; it is a matter of my wife and me.  On the other hand, I think that a united family is the best place where children can grow up. I think that love should be present in all human relationships. When I say love, I mean really the love, empathy, will of good for people I love. Feeling is neither the cause nor the essence of love. Feeling is an usual result of love. But love is more than feeling . I can say that I love you  when I want all the good for you, in spite that the good for you doesn't mean a pleasure for me, in spite that the good for you means an effort for me. I bathe naked on the beach, and I sunbathe naked, that's true... but I do not prete…

Horror and Hope in Catalonia on October 1 (by Mathew Tree)

The next issue was written by Mathew Tree in his facebook.       He gently allowed me to publish it here.

On the evening of the September 30th, I went on a stroll to my nearest polling station, the Fort Pienc primary school at the far eastern end of Barcelona's Eixample district; the same school which my children had attended from the ages of three to twelve. So I knew quite a lot of the people there, who were putting up signs on the walls supporting democracy and the right to vote and were going to spend the night there, organising activities that were non-referendum-related, as they knew they would get visits from the Catalan police, who had instructions to close any premises in which 'referendum-realted activity' was taking place.  The police had been twice, had been exquisitely polite, took note of the number of people staying overnight and left. The atmosphere inside was bristling with excitement, of a kind I'd seen before (on the major Catalan demonstrations of 201…
