Amnesty Law for Cuban Political Prisoners

An Amnesty Law for all Cuban political prisoners will have to be introduced before transition to democracy will take place. This is not as easy as it may seem. For who are ‘political prisoners'? Is the bombing of a Cuban government building, causing death and destruction, a political or a criminal ...

It’s About Breaking the Race-Barrier

When we from abroad watch the American presidential campaign, we see a young man with an unusual name - Obama - take center stage. And we rejoice. We are beginning to see a new America. An America that is finally and definitely going to define a new direction. For this is not about race. It’s about ...

A Yearlong Christmas Spirit


By Caritas Puella

While blooms are still on the Poinsettia and the Mistletoe has not yet lost its charming spell, a powerful thought comes to mind:  What if the world were like Christmas every day?

With months-long hustle and bustle of preparing for one glorious holiday, all of a sudden everything ...

Diabolus est Deus Inversus

The Devil is God turned upside down. As long as our understanding of God is on this level, i.e. that there are two Forces - one Good (= God) and the other Evil (= Devil), we are going to keep on fighting wars. Look at the words themselves even: Good = God and The Evil = Devil. So God is not One, ...

Power must die and be Replaced by Justice

A seed must die to be reborn and grow into a tree. So too, a man must die to be reborn and become a new man. His ego must die. He himself must kill it, or at least be willing that it be killed. The same goes for power. The world is ruled by power, not justice. Power must die to be replaced by ...

USA: the World’s Last Best Hope

Some of our American friends don’t agree with our last Daily Connect, in which we point out that the Bush-administration poses a serious threat to freedom and democracy. They don’t see it. They demand proof. When we point out that the US is violating human rights openly and with total disregard for ...

Muslims write to Christian Leaders

It’s not only the Pope they addressed their letter to. They wrote to all most prominent Christian leaders. They open by saying: “Without peace and justice between these two religious communities, there can be no meaningful peace in the world. The future of the world depends on peace between Muslims ...

Nicaragua-Honduras Peace Restored

Holland has done something right. It is host-country to the UN’s International Court of Justice (ICJ),  which has drawn a new maritime border between Honduras and Nicaragua to end a long-standing dispute between these two countries. For us in the Caribbean this is very relevant, as the ICJ’s ...

New EU-Vision on Migration?

European governments should regard immigration as an "enrichment", not a threat, EU Justice Commissioner Franco Frattini told a conference in Lisbon, calling for a ‘New Vision'. Thus the BBC reports on 13/9/07. Mr Frattini announced he will soon outline proposals for a "blue card" system for ...

We have no other choice

Union leaders are waiting for capitalism to bite hard. Then they’ll make their come-back. And capitalism is already biting. It is in capitalism’s nature – greed – to bite. That’s why Socialists are waiting for just a little more greed. When things get real hard for the masses, they’ll strike again. ...

Quite an Ego-trip!

So you think you can extract our planet from the Universe and rebuild it in your own image? That’s quite an ego-trip, my friend. From the Cosmic perspective we are no more than microbes crawling on the face of a speck of dirt, spinning around in the middle of nowhere, circling around another speck ...

Free Market Justice

“With Labor Day approaching Angelo Mozilo, (…) chief executive of Countrywide Financial – the company that has helped drive world markets into turmoil (..) – raked in $42.9 million last year. The Nobel laureate Harold Varmus, chief executive of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, was paid ...

Boycott Yahoo!

We return once more to Yahoo’s double standard. On the one hand Yahoo wants the net to be 1) private (which in fact it is not; it is the public internet; everything you post or write – also e-mails - leaves a trace and is public) and 2) to be a worldwide forum for free speech. But then, Yahoo (and ...

A Just Solution for Iraq

At this time of grave danger to freedom and democracy from within and from without, we need new ideas. We need new paradigmatic ideas. What follows is such an idea. We copy it verbatim from www.catholicprwire.com where it was posted on 23 August 2007 (note: sub-headings were added by us). The idea ...

The Shekels Shackle

Now even atheists, may like this article. Try it. When Christ was in the desert fasting for 40 days, he was tempted by Satan. The first temptation was about money and riches. ‘Deviate from Justice’, the Tempter said. ‘Let me win the day, just once, and all the world’s riches will be yours’. Now ...

Jihad is Crusade

The Palestinians can be victorious, once they understand Jihad properly. We should rephrase this: The Palestinians and the Israelí’s will be victorious, once both sides understand Jihad properly. Jihad is a spiritual crusade. It is an inner struggle to reach the point of perfect submission to God ...

We Hang in Between

One of our biggest mistakes is the belief that we are sovereign. True it is, our Inner Self is sovereign, our conscience if you will. But we as human beings are utterly dependent on the Spirit. Without the Spirit in us, our hearts would not beat. If the Spirit falters just a couple of minutes, ...

TRANS-BLOGGING the World

It’s happening right now, under our very eyes. We’re trans-blogging the world! A huge transformation is taking place. And the pace is accelerating all the time as new technologies become available. Before long, our lives will be half-virtual, half-real. The blogo-sphere will be the mainstream ...

Welcome, Terror!

The fascist tendencies which have come to the surface around the globe, both in Islamic and Christian countries, as well as in communist states such as Cuba and China (and even in Hindu India), is there for us to conquer and give us the fuel and incentive to rise to a higher planetary level. This ...
