This has clearly shown to have destructive consequences both for nature and the planet as for global society and humanity.

PLAY VIDEO ►►► England and its lingering colonies

"The Spider's Web: Britain's Second Empire" is a documentary on the dominant role of "the City of London" in global Banking Secrecy.

Does Europe need a different school system?

PLAY VIDEO ►►► Do schools kill creativity? | Sir Ken Robinson

In his popular TED talk "Do schools kill creativity?" Sir Ken Robinson questions the validity of the modern education and schooling system for the future. An entertaining but at the same time profound talk that makes you think.
