[94] The Moral Imperative

Posted on Actualizado enn

Can we really say that those in society with the least education, the most dysfunctional upbringings and relationships and whose behavior, personality designs and thought processes are most aligned to the culture of crime and survival – are the ones who have a Moral imperative to change who they are? Can anyone really make an honest living in this world? What is our moral imperative as a society? We will be discussing this and more with Matti Freeman.
You are welcome to place comments and questions on the subject throughout our live transmission.

Structural Violence and the Roots of Inequality

Posted on

Structural Violence kills more people every year than terrorism, religious extremism, crime or war. Famine, Poverty, lack of healthcare and social injustice are some of the consequences of it and are entirely preventable. Why are we still not solving the problems that affect our basic living and well-being? Today we will be discussing Structural Violence with Joana Jesus.

Basic Income as Basic Resources

Posted on Actualizado enn

How have we come to accept the division between access to income and access to resources? What have we taken for granted within not guaranteeing an income for every person? How is a basic income in fact a natural extension and conclusion to the application and safeguarding of Basic Human Rights?
Join us today to discuss these topics with Scott Santens, Freelance writer and Basic Income advocate based in the United States

Land Grabs and the Manufacturing of Poverty

Posted on

In this hangout we discuss some of the adverse effects of FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) when this is aimed at economic growth and disregards the well being of people. One of these phenomena is Land Grabbing, which disempowers the local population. With food security reaching an all time low and Food production an all time high – how is hunger manufactured and what are the solutions we can implement towards human oriented development? We’ll be discussing Land Grabbing around the world with Eleonora Gozzini.
