The Transition

The Transition

Are what we call well past societies, such as Venezuela. The only possible purpose of political institutions is to achieve the greatest possible measure of happiness for citizens. In the quiet mediocrity of the little souls can not be open to new forms of social and political forms. In the field of evolution sociopolitical and small tribes are frozen in time. For these tribes that prevent access to the future, the greatest happiness possible for the maintenance of obsolete structures and thought declined. I will not return to Deleuze with the differences between disciplinary societies and control, an issue that I have raised in previous books very valuable or the details of Foucault on the subject. Nor will I address the nihilism and cynicism of contemporary man also tried earlier.

I will not meddle in the genetic manipulation in antropotecnica mutation or the crisis of culture, which certainly deserve a separate space. They are changing the way people communicate, interact and exchange information. Economic change, governments change, but above all societies change. It is clear that there will be competition between local, regional and global, which will parallel economic interdependence, social and environmental that will produce dramatic results. The changes will be felt in the place we work, we produce, where we learn and as we outlined the different phases of our lives. We can identify changes such as the transition towards knowledge societies. This implies that in the context of negotiations over the future automatically enters a new entrant: society, because the substitution of a society informed by a company comunicadaa necessarily mean a "without forgetting the dangers totalitarian persecution of democratic goals, sustainable development and gender equality.

What To Do Before The Pro-regularization Of The Mayor And London Assembly ?

What To Do Before The Pro-regularization Of The Mayor And London Assembly ?

On Monday night the BBC broadcast tuned scenario suggested approving an adjustment to the 750 000 estimated to survive irregular in the UK. While the immigration minister rejected any kind of amnesty, the conservative mayor said it is impossible to expel 750,000 illegal and said he had a moral obligation to legalize those who have time here so that they contribute to the economy and to avoid having two classes of Londoners: a living in the legality and others in the shade. Many observe the fact that at the same time, the mayor asked to see the conditions to apply for visas and criticized the government for being soft or inefficient to immigrants. Hence, there are some who say that the mayor is still a right that is another facet of the old Tory attitude hostile to immigrants. However, we must stress the fact that Johnson is the leader of the European right is not anti-immigrant discourse has Sarkozy or Berlusconi.

He has alienated even his own party and even his own conservative caucus in the Assembly. The Latin American community and immigrants have to choose between two attitudes in this regard. One may be to merely condemn the mayor for being a member of the party of Thatcher or say that he is a demagogue who is willing to traffic in a sector of the population to catch votes. Another might be wanting to take the criticism that he makes the government (and indirectly his own party) to seek to generate a current of opinion in favor of adjustment.
