THE OTHER SIDE OF POWER: Judit


The Other Side of Power: Judith and the World.
The power that destroys, mutilates, kidnaps, massacres, collapsing values: government, politics, capital, companies, multinationals, silences taxes, profits above human life, animal, nature and Power Judith.

I'll just transcribe and believers or non-believers, atheists and secular, democratic or totalitarian, communist liberal or may draw their own conclusions.

"Book of Judith (Foreword) Latin American Catholic Bible"

We will not use much time to show that this whole story is a fiction. From the first verse speaks of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Assyria, while he was king of Babylon and Assyria crushed. The speeches of his general Holofernes are caricatures out of all reality, and every moment are anachronisms.

But, having said this, it is clear that the author wants to remind permanent truth of the story: God is against oppressive powers and always holds its own plan.

What stimulated the author and explains the character of this new presentation of the victories of God, seems to have been the heroic resistance against the invading Syrians time of the Maccabees. The victory of Judith expresses the hopes of the Jewish people after all these years so hard that restored after more than three centuries, their independence.

.... David and Goliath: the super-armed and weak, which has the technical, sophisticated weapons and international banks, which can spread and impose their truth through the world ... And the weak, always stripped, silenced, had as guilty, often segregated in reserves and refugee camps. His faith and perseverance be your strength (Lk 18:1). There will be a time for God, but maybe not the revenge and massacres with which the author dreamed of Judith. For history's reins are in the hands of the crucified and resurrected, and all will be saved even though they do not know what can be the salvation to which God leads.

LA OTRA CARA DEL PODER: Judit

La otra cara del Poder: Judit y el Mundo.
El poder que destruye, mutila, secuestra, masacra, derrumba valores: los gobiernos, la política, los capitales, las empresas, las Multinacionales, los silencios impuestos, las ganancias por encima de la vida humana, animal, de la naturaleza y el Poder de Judit.

Sólo voy a transcribir y creyentes o no creyentes, laicos y ateos, demócratas o totalitarios, liberales o comunistas podrán sacar sus propias conclusiones.

"Libro de Judit (Prólogo) Biblia Católica Latinoamericana"

No  emplearemos mucho tiempo en demostrar que toda esta historia es una ficción. Desde el primer versículo nos habla de Nabucodonosor, rey de los asirios, mientras que era rey de Babilonia y aplastó a Asiria. Los discursos de su general Holofernes son caricaturas fuera de toda realidad, y a cada instante se encuentran anacronismos.

Pero, después de haber dicho esto, está claro que el autor quiere recordarnos una verdad permanente de la historia: Dios está en contra de los poderes opresores y siempre lleva a cabo su propio plan.

Lo que estimuló al autor y que explica el carácter propio de esta nueva presentación de las victorias de Dios, parece que fue la resistencia heroica contra los invasores sirios en tiempo de los Macabeos. La victoria de Judit expresa las esperanzas del pueblo judío después de esos años tan duros que le permitieron recuperar, luego de más de tres siglos, su independencia.

.... David y Goliat: el super-armado y el débil; el que dispone de la técnica, las armas sofisticadas y la banca internacional; el que puede difundir su verdad e imponerla a través del mundo... Y el débil, siempre despojado, acallado, tenido como culpable, a menudo segregado en las reservas y los campos de refugiados. Su fe y su perseverancia serán su fuerza (Lc 18,1). Habrá una hora de Dios, pero tal vez no será la venganza y las masacres con los que soñaba el autor de Judit. Pues las riendas de la historia están en las manos del que fue crucificado y resucitó, y todos serán salvados a pesar de que no saben cuál puede ser la salvación a la que Dios nos lleva.

Animals and Us: Orangutans

http://www.care2.com/c2c/group/Michela

Of that I have the grace of belonging.

How Christian and Catholic as not to become an activist for LIFE.Life consists of many creatures. Not just ours, human beings whose defense certainly is and should be categorical. It consists of an infinite world of creatures. Yes infinity. God continues to create. There are signs of the emergence of new species. But while these are, avarice, greed, lack of love destroy thousands or becoming extinct.
I joined this group because their modus of life is very similar to ours, also that of many other species of animals, but I want to start with them: orangutans.
Today the species is close to extinction in many parts of the world. Their habitat has been contaminated and injured mainly by oil multinationals. Escavan, project, extract, get dirty and have no control over their platforms or refineries, often causing large fires in addition to causing themselves to clean the soil and plant their refineries there.
This has been silently destroying the natural place where orangutans live, leaving them without food, having to move to place that are not their own. So have been eroding in their groups. Then there are the hunters, who kidnap them to carry zoos and circuses.
Therefore it is essential to act. The love that God gave us as a gift is action. If there is no action, no Holy Spirit, no life. Life is a gift to be precious care. So I ask entering the link, read, watch, get to know the truth of what they experience and what they need from us.
Just as with a rose in his hands, so we can make your life a better life, instead guarding, preserving their customs from which we can enrich ourselves as human beings.
The link to the page Orangutans Group has no political affiliation, religious or any other kind, just the need to save lives. I invite you to join and participate.

Los Animales y Nosotros: LOS ORANGUTANES

Del que tengo la gracia de pertenecer.

Cómo cristiana y católica como no convertirme en ACTIVISTA a favor de LA VIDA.
La vida se compone de muchas criaturas. No sólo de la nuestra, la de los seres humanos cuya defensa sin lugar a dudas es y debe ser categórica. Se compone de un mundo infinito de criaturas. Sí infinito. Dios sigue creando. Hay muestras de la aparición de nuevas especies. Pero en tanto estas aparecen, la avaricia, la codicia, la falta de amor destruyen miles de otras o las van extinguiendo.

Me uní a este grupo debido a que su modus de vida es muy semejante al nuestro, también la de muchas otras especies de animales, pero quiero comenzar con ellos: Los Orangutanes.

Hoy su especie se aproxima a la extinción en varios puntos del planeta. Su hábitat ha sido contaminado y lesionado principalmente por las Multinacionales del Petróleo. Escavan, Proyectan, Extraen, ensucian y no tienen control alguno sobre sus plataformas o refinerías, ocasionando muchas veces grandes incendios que se suman a los que ellos mismos provocan para limpiar el suelo y plantar allí sus refinerías.

Esto ha ido destruyendo silenciosamente el lugar natural donde vivir los orangutanes, dejándolos sin comida, teniendo que migrar a lugar que no les son propios. Así han ido mermando en sus grupos. Luego vienen los cazadores, los que los secuestran para llevar a zoos y circos. 

Por eso es indispensable, actuar. El amor que Dios nos dio como regalo es acción. Si no hay acción, no hay Espíritu Santo, no hay vida. La vida es un regalo que debe ser cuidado preciosamente. Por ello les pido ingresen en el link, lean, vean, entérense de las verdades de lo que padecen y cuánto necesitan de nosotros.

Así como tienen una rosa entre sus manos, así nosotros podemos hacer de su vida una vida mejor, custodiando su lugar, preservando sus costumbres de las que podemos enriquecernos como seres humanos.

El link a la página del Grupo Orangutanes no tiene filiación política, religiosa o de ningún otro tipo, sólo la necesidad de salvar vidas. Los invito a unirse y participar activamente.

The relics of a truth

How strange we humans? We went through wars, suffer the death, maiming, loss, madness, homelessness, rape, tears, separations and yet time and again we repeat the. No possibility of conceiving a life with dignity for all, confronting our own rationale, makes us enemies. Enemies in culture in everyday life enemies, enemies in politics, enemies ... How many enemies and many enemies created build we join?

Life has become "relics of a truth" of a forgotten truth.

Death everywhere. Life without spot or place.
Millions dying or killing millions.
Humans aimlessly lead others to live in their own virtual world created.
Ones that do not see, but still looking long.
Ones who do not listen, they cover their ears to hear not take responsibility.
Ones that do not suffer the pain of the other, leaving locked and without words to comfort you need.

The life we ​​have become "relics of a truth," a truth destroyed.

Who is right? The truth hidden in these relics. He that is able to escape the folly of a world and a society full of gimmicks and tricks, traps and betrayals, of cronyism false and false friends. He who is not ready to be loved by love as they say today too. What false quote: Do men can love too?!

The relics of a truth I say: Do not look back, still in this virtual world, trying to bring true love. Do not let the traps you added one after another they create flags that only look at their own narrow interests. Follow, follow, follow ....

Makes commitments while others do not.
What other people call you "crazy, stupid, boring" as you lift the premise of the value of life!

Sum, and the sum is slow.
Subtract that wants your hands and feet tied, wanting to close your mouth and add to the lie.
Wake up that much remains to rescue those relics of truth today sleeping.

Las reliquias de una verdad


¡Qué extraños somos los seres humanos? Atravesamos guerras, sufrimos las muertes, mutilaciones, extravíos, locura, desamparo, violaciones, desgarros, separaciones y sin embargo una y otra vez las volvemos a repetir. Sin posibilidad de concebir una vida con dignidad para todos, el enfrentamiento de nuestra propia razón de ser, nos convierte en enemigos. Enemigos en la cultura, enemigos en la vida cotidiana, enemigos en la política, enemigos... ¿Cuántos enemigos construimos y a cuántos enemigos creados nos sumamos?

La vida se ha convertido en: "las reliquias de una verdad", de una verdad olvidada.

La muerte por todos lados. La vida sin lugar o cabida.
Millones muriendo o millones matando.
Seres humanos sin rumbo llevan a otros a vivir en su propio mundo virtual creado.
Seres que no ven, sino que mirando siguen de largo.
Seres que no escuchan, sino que oyendo tapan los oídos para no asumir su responsabilidad.
Seres que no sufren el dolor del otro, dejando encerrados y sin palabras al que necesita de consuelo.

La vida la hemos convertido en: "las reliquias de una verdad", de una verdad destruida.

¿Quién tiene la verdad? La verdad escondida en aquellas reliquias. El que es capaz de huir de la necedad de un mundo y una sociedad llena de artilugios y engaños, trampas y traiciones, de amiguismos falsos y de falsos amigos. El que está dispuesto a no ser amado por amar como dicen hoy: demasiado. ¡Qué falso presupuesto: ¿acaso se puede amar demasiado?! 

Las reliquias de una verdad me dicen: No mires atrás, sigue aún en este mundo virtual, intentando llevar el amor verdadero. No permitas que te suman en las trampas que una tras otra van creando banderas que sólo miran sus propios intereses mezquinos. Sigue, sigue, sigue....

Asume compromisos aunque otros no lo hagan.
¡Qué otros te llamen "loca, necia, aburrida" mientras levantas la premisa del valor de la vida!

Suma, y la suma es lenta.
Resta al que tus manos y pies quiere atar, queriendo cerrar tu boca y sumar a la mentira.
Despierta que todavía falta mucho por rescatar aquéllas reliquias de la verdad hoy dormidas.

VENEZUELA, I'm not Chavez


Shouting "I am Chávez", yesterday January 10, 2013, the government majority in the National Assembly of Venezuela broke the constitutional order in the country installing a new coup.
For over a year I have been writing about the possibility, and supervening today, government policies that figures like Hugo Chavez and his ideological thinking could eventually be promoters of the new Latin American dictatorships.
My worst suspicions were confirmed. The reality is that only yesterday unmasked what really are these ideologies. Ideologies based on personalism. In the embodiment of a new messianism. Messianism supported by the "deification" of that which is built up in leadership revived a vision of what we thought exceeded. The reissues of old ideals "Communists".
January 10, 2013, Venezuela, brother has suffered Institutional Coup. Hearing the words of oath uttered in the previous period of government by Commander Hugo Chavez Frias where he said: "Fatherland, Socialism or Death" is easy to understand the reasons that led to this brother country suffered the day yesterday 10 January a coup.
If 
Fatherland, "Socialism", or death, any possibility that threatens the "socialist" ideology will be prosecuted and prevented. Nothing new under the sun. In all honesty, Venezuela and lived in fact a dictatorship, where every thought gainsaying the leader of the revolution chavizta was persecuted in the shadows. From darkness to light, Chavez's disease, showed necessarily what was intended to mask: the lack of security and rule of law.

President Hugo Chavez was elected "swear" to the National Assembly of Venezuela, his illness, from which it is impossible to ignore its seriousness, prevented him from doing. This is Venezuela's Constitution requiring mechanisms that an inability of the President-elect sworn in for the new constitutional period must follow certain procedures I do not want to talk here about "constitutional procedures" that we all know. But, on why we should raise our voice for our support in defending the institutional order and report the abuse to the constitutional provision that yesterday suffered Venezuela.
Because shouting "I am Chávez" PSUV, transferred the power given by the people of Venezuela Hugo Chavez Frias. It is not difficult to understand the reasons for this need to transfer that power from the younger heads chavizta revolution. You do need to speak up and take a stand.
These ideologies, rather than ideologies, personalities are exacerbated, using democratic mechanisms have become a true compromise, individual freedoms throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
Democratic systems have been being mined from the ground. The revolutionary ideology which once tried to install via American weapons used today all structures of the democratic system to achieve the same ends. Impose their own truth. Before this old authoritarianism, reissued, is that we should stand up and say: "I'm not Chavez."
