The golden boys and the bonuses PDF Print E-mail

An attempt at a comprehensive institutional approach

In the United States – though not only there – there is a major problem caused by the lack of an appropriate law to deal with the bonuses which are given in the middle of an economic crisis to the senior executive officers of bankrupt enterprises. However, in a just society there is no lacuna in the law. There are general penal, civil, and administrative provisions, as well as the constitution and, in addition, certain principles of law which can assist in an investigation of the legality or otherwise of certain actions. In democracies there are always such principles, and it is an issue of political will that they should be implemented.

Dealing with the crisis our views and our incentives PDF Print E-mail

The non-economic aspect of the crisis
Strange as it may seem, it is precisely now when there has been an increasingly economic and environmental crisis that it is the right moment for thought and reflection.

However, despite the, now historically and on evidence, inadequacy of all the models, man is still looking in a frenzied manner for something which will solve the problem for him right now, without his losing whatever he already owns.

The criteria for a sustainable acceptance of faith

What must the criteria be for a sustainable acceptance of faith?  
First and foremost, it must not be the place or time of birth. Unfortunately, communication with religious culture is an issue which is bound in time and space and we are not exempt from that. This suggests materialism and limitation of the spirit.

The world of concepts, communication, and the approach to religion

Communication in the world of the concept within each religion, between religions, and of religion with science, art, philosophy, and, more generally, the world of the intellect and education is very helpful in bringing out the sustainability of religions and of religious feeling. This sustainability means a process, mutual understanding, convergence, innovation and renewal – it means all these things.

The Psychological Dimension of Sustainable Religion
The next dimension of the sustainable approach to religion is psychological. The psychological dimension appreciates the participation of all the centres of psychological development, including the sexuality centre, in the creation of a psychological surplus, a surplus of consciousness which is summed up in the religion and faith of a surplus which acts as a cornerstone in the psychological economy of man and of society.

A JURISTIC AND ONTOLOGICAL APPROACH TO THE RELIGIONS OF THE BIBLE - SOME THOUGHTS ON ORIGINAL SIN PDF Print E-mail

Adam_Eve_after_sin1. As original sin the religions of Christianity and Judaism define the error of the first human beings, Adam and Eve, in eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge in spite of the fact that this had been forbidden by God. 
This error, which cost our first parents expulsion from Paradise, by some mechanism which is not at all clear, is handed on to all the descendants of these first human beings, and, consequently, to the whole of present-day humanity, regardless of the intention and efforts of each individual.

External effects are definitive and liberating
, both for institutional and functional issues of the economy. In the case of institutional issues, in the juristic approach to property and rights, in the juristic approach to use, to dominance and function, these are concepts which carry weight.

Bl.Sun_wikipediaExternal effects and the highlighting of the human factor in democracy
The issue of externalities is also profoundly democratic, as it injects necessity and acts as a factor for promoting the necessity and need for negotiation. On this basis, it is also capable of revitalising its scientific issues and criteria, its scientific approaches and the Labour Movement –as the whole of society and the alternative movements are now beginning to bring to light core necessities for changes.

overrun with weeds for the times have passed

in the clearing on the sun-bathed hills,
facing the world.

The Lord's Supper, the Resurrection, and sustainable religion

The consuming fire liberates us from our alienation, and the outer fire is our alienation – that is why it is 'outer'.
We are the 'feeders' of this fire in our everyday life, which we make unlivable, as we empty our personality of the powers of happiness, chasing after the ghost of prosperity in paths of greed, considering whatever we have as insufficient and claiming the boundless, being unable to serve, seeking alone to be served.

markouzePhilosophical and epistemological approach
The concept of externalities was created by the functional shortcomings of economic theory and of economic practicality as to their theoretical and functional completeness. It calls attention to the incompleteness of economic thought as a point of theoretical and functional maturation. It is the point at which the economy and economic science recognises its open-endedness, its incompleteness, entering upon the stage of interdisciplinary maturation.
