In 1832 Germany's greatest literary light gave the world his last metaphor, this time unintended. As he sat in his Weimar house with his daughter-in-law, Ottilie, Goethe spoke of the walks he would take in the warmer months ahead, made some reference to a girl of his youth, and breathed the name of his equally famous, long-dead friend, Friedrich von Schiller. But wanting another shutter opened to the morning sun, the author of Faust called his personal assistant for "More light!" Then his finger traced a word on the air, he shifted in his chair, and he fell asleep, dying at some moment well before anyone realized it. "You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the world always works in circles, and everything tries to be round.... The sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours... Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves." -- Black Elk, Oglala A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world. - Oscar Wilde Many scientists believe that another world is watching us this moment. We once laughed at the horseless carriage, the aeroplane, the telephone, the electric light, vitamins, radio, and even television! And now some of us laugh at outer space. - The Legendary Criswell Our house is made of glass ... and our lives are made of glass; and there is nothing we can do to protect ourselves. - Joyce Carol Oates Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, order more tunnel. - Sir John Quinton In winter I get up at night And dress by yellow candle-light. In summer, quite the other way, I have to go to bed by day. - Robert Louis Stevenson We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own. - Ben Sweetland Inside my empty bottle I was constructing a lighthouse while all the others were making ships. - Charles Simic To love beauty is to see light. - Victor Hugo Work while you have the light. You are responsible for the talent that has been entrusted to you. - Henri Frédéric Amiel Why should there be a lamp in every window? Because in all this wide city, there is not enough light. Because the young in the world are crazy for light and the old are afraid it will leave them. - Lola Haskins "I go among the Fields and catch a glimpse of a fieldmouse peeping out of the withered grass- the creature hath a purpose, and its eyes are bright with it. I go among the buildings of a city and see a man hurrying along- to what? the creature hath a purpose, and his eyes are bright with it." -- Keats, 1819 We love hammocks! Here in Den Permanente 6 oclock AM. The beach is ours !The light is only magic from 6 to 9.30 AM. We pack at 9.30 AM. We light the owen so that everyone may bake bread in it. -Jose Marti It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. -Marianne Williamson Each man takes from life his favourite truth, as each man takes from light his favourite color. -Edward Bulwer Lytton Who will change old lamps for new ones? -The story of Aladdin People are like stained glass windows, they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within. -Elizabeth kebler-ross My candle burns out at both ends, it will not last the night, but ah foes and on my friends-it gives a lovely light! -Edna Saint Vincent Millay Life is the lust of a lamp for the light that is dark til the dawn of the day when we die. -A.C. Swinburn An age is called dark, not because the light fails to shine, but because the people refuse it to see it. -James A. Michener The stars that nature hung in heaven, and filled their lamps with everlasting oil give due light to the misled and lonely traveller. -John Milton Why should there be a lamp in every window? Because in this wide city there is not enough light. Because the young in the world are crazy for light and the old are afraid it will leave them. -Lola Haskins Luminary, n. One who throws light upon a subject, as an editor by not writting about it. -Ambrose Bierce Not every light is a true light, to the wise the light of truth is light itself. -Tiru Valluvar Nations like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. -Victor Hugo Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day, he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation. - Jean Arp In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present. - Francis Bacon There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. - Edith Wharton I like bats much better than bureaucrats. I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of 'Admin.' The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid 'dens of crime' that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voice. - C.S. Lewis I believe in rainbows and all of that. But there are darker colors ... and it's the shade that defines the light. - Tori Amos People recognize themselves in their commodities; they find their soul in their automobile, hi-fi set, split-level home, kitchen equipment. - Herbert Marcuse If I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace. - Gaston Bachelard The laws of nature are the rules according to which the effects are produced; but there must be a cause which operates according to these rules. The rules of navigation never navigated a ship. The rules of architecture never built a house. - Thomas Reid Late at night with the electric light shining, listening to the sounds of rain outside, I was reading a book. On a page of the opened book a single fly cast a shadow of loneliness without realizing it. - Shinkichi Takahashi Do you realize if it weren't for Edison we'd be watching TV by candlelight? - Al Boliska To speculate without facts is to attempt to enter a house of which one has not the key, by wandering aimlessly round and round, searching the walls and now and then peeping through the windows. Facts are the key. - Julian Huxley Many a man has fallen in love with a girl in a light so dim he would not have chosen a suit by it. - Maurice Chevalier What's the use of a fine house if you haven't got a tolerable planet to put it on? - Henry David Thoreau Think what a mean and wretched place this world is; that half the time we have to light a lamp that we may see to live in it. This is half our life. Who would undertake the enterprise if it were all? - Henry David Thoreau Nothing travels faster than the speed of light, with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own set of laws. - Douglas Adams I shut the heavy Gothic door and retired by the light of the electric bulbs which so cleverly counterfeited candles, finally switching off the light and sinking on the carved and canopied four-poster, with the venerable cat in his accustomed place across my feet. - Howard Phillips Lovecraft When birds fly in the right formation, they need only exert half the effort. Even in Nature, teamwork results in collective laziness. Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate,no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament. It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage. - Joseph Addison "Thereare two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it." -Edith Wharton Beauty deprived of its proper foils and adjuncts ceases to be enjoyed as beauty, just as light deprived of all shadows ceases to be enjoyed as light". -John Ruskin "There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even a small candle". -Robert Alden "Sometimes at night i light a lamp so as not to see". -Antonio Porchia "One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness consciouns". -Carl Jung "Most people are mirrors reflecting the moods and emotions of the times. Some people are windows, bringing light to bear on the dark corners where troubles fester. The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows". Sydney J. Harris "Ever since we crawled out of the primor dial slime, that's been our unnifying cry, "More Light". Sunlight, torchlight. Candle Light. Neon, incandescent lights that banish the darkness from our caves to iluminate our roads, the inside of our refrigerators. Little tiny flashlights for those books we read under the covers when we are supposed to be asleep. Light is more than watts and footcandles. Light is metaphor. Light is knowledge. Light is life. Light is Light". -Diane Frolov & Andrew Schneider "You can't study the darkness by flooding it with light". -Edward Abbey "The factory that produces the most important product is the home". -Carol Williams "Emergencies have allways been necesary to progress. It was darkness that produced the lamp. It was fog that produced the compass. It was hunger that drove us to exploration". -Victor Hugo "Opinions are to the vast apparatus of social existence what oil is to machines: one does not go up to a turbine and pour machine oil over it; one applies a little to hidden spindles and joints that one has to know". -Walter Benjamin "Many a man has fallen in love with a girl in a light so dim he would not have chosen a suit by it". -Maurice Chevalier "Really Watson, you excel yourself", said Holmes. It may be that you are not yourself luminous, but you are a conductor of light. Some people without possessing genius have a remarcable power of stimulating it". -Conan Doyle "To grow for the sake of growing is the ideology of the cancer cell" -Edward Abbey "You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the world always works in circles, and everything tries to be round.... The sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours... Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves." -- Black Elk, Oglala Tribute to Eva Perón! Aniversary of Eva Perón 2019 Perón! Perón! Perón! Perón! “Nadie sino el pueblo me llama Evita. Solamente aprendieron a llamarme así los descamisados. Los hombres de gobierno, los dirigentes políticos, los embajadores, los hombres de empresa, profesionales, intelectuales, etc., que me visitan suelen llamarme señora; y algunos incluso me dicen públicamente Excelentísima o Dignísima Señora y aun a veces, Señora Presidenta. Cuando un pibe me nombra Evita me siento madre de todos los pibes y de todos los débiles y humildes de mi tierra”. -Eva Perón! “No. No es filantropía, ni es caridad, ni es limosna, ni es solidaridad social, ni es beneficencia. Ni siquiera es ayuda social, aunque por darle un nombre aproximado yo le he puesto ése. Para mí, es estrictamente justicia. Lo que más me indignaba al principio de la ayuda social, era que me la calificasen de limosna o de beneficencia”. -Eva Perón! “Mi sentimiento de indignación por la injusticia social es la fuerza que me ha llevado de la mano, desde mis primeros recuerdos hasta aquí”. -Eva Perón! THE WACKERNAGEL REPORT If our political system really functioned, right now in all parlaments of the world this graphic will be in discussion. Elaborated by Mathis Wackernagel, researcher of the Global Footprint Network (California) is just demolishing and deserve the widest publication. The graphic is simple. The vertical axis represents the Index of Human Development (IHD), elaborated by the United Nations to measure the life conditions of citizens acording to indicators like hope of life at birth, educational level, and PIB per capita. The program of the UN for development (PNUD) consider the Index of Human Development "high" when it is equal or superior to 0.8, establishing that -if not- the countries are not "enough developed". In the horizontal axis it is measured the quantity of planets Earth that will be necesary to use in the case that a general pattern would be adopted for the rest of the world by a level of consume of a certain country. Wackernagel and his team made the calcules for 93 countries between 1975 & 2003. The results are shacking and surprising. If for example, the lifestyle of Burundi came to be generalized, we would still have more than half a planet available to use. But Burundi is very below the satisfactory level of development (0'3 of Index of Human Development ) On the other hand UK -for example- has an excellent Index of Human Development . The problem is that to achieve it, it needs to consume so many resources that, if their lifestyle would generalize, we would lack 3 planets earth. EEUU has a good mark in human development, but its ecological footprint is such that it would require 5 planet earths to be able to generalize its lifestyle. Looking at the rest of the 93 countries of the study, it can be understood that there are motives for the Wackenrnagel report to be called: "The world gets dumpe karaktere in sustainable development". As there exists only one planet earth, it is obvious that only the countries located inside the gray area of the graphic ( above the 0'8 in Index of Human Development, without exceeding the number 1 of available planets) have a sustainable development. Only those countries in that area would be a political model to imitate. Now, the named area is practically empty. Only one country in the world -at least now- has a aceptable development that is sustainable too: Cuba. This conclusion is a matter to meditate. We can hear that many cubans leave the island in rafts looking for a country of that other level of consumption that cannot be generalized without destroying the planet. They reinvindicate their right to be globally so irresponsable, criminal and suicidal like the EEUU consumers or like us the consumers of Europe. We will have very little shame - of course- if we condemned the pretension of others of copying the way how we devoure without punishment our planet. We can recognize that the media image changes radically: the cuban rafters escape from responsable consumism in search of the paradise of the suicidal consumption; and because strategical interests in blaming Cuba, these people are received as freedom heroes, instead of closing the frontiers as EEUU do with those that escape from misery - for example- from Burundi (whom are treated like a plague that EEUU wants to be protected from) At the general level, the discussion is much more interesting. Very significative that the only sustainable country in the world is a socialist country (central planed economy or "state capitalism" in Trotskist argot, etc) Among many economists is easy to hear that socialism resulted in ruins and inneficient in the economical sense. In terms of sustainable development, the socialist economy seems to be competitive at a maximum level. In terms of suicidal development -there is no doubt- the capitalism is much more. The worst critic that can be done to the capitalist system is -precisely- that it is incapable to stop or even diminish its rythm. The capitalism is a system prisoner of its own impulse. The economist J. K. Galbraith said that "among all the models considered of being a good society, never anyone proposed the Hamster wheel". However even if its clear that no one had proposed such model, this absurd system has imposed itself: In Capitalism each one tries to overtake the competition by increasing its productivity to avoid loosing market, but finding theirselves all in the same race, it never arrives the moment of stopying this augment without interruption of increasing rythm and the resulting overconsumption of resources. Confronting this absurd dynamic, we must ask our right to stop. We cannot accept that our ministers of economy try to convince us that "growing" below the 2 or 3% is catastrophic and we cannot allow that our politicians continue to propose as solution that the poor countries imitate the rich countries. It is materially imposible. The planet cannot produce it. When they propose this model they know in reality that they defend something very diferent: that we hide in castles surrounded by high walls where to devour the planet without being disturbed or imited. Could it be that the real common sense final solution would be an inverted Auschwitz where instead of imprisoning victims, we can enclose ourselves to protect us from the weapon of mass destruction most powerful of history: The international economic system?
