Cooperatives and the Good Life

"The rights of businesses in exploiting resources end in the rights of nature according to the constitution of the bien vivir. This understanding of the person-nature relation surpasses the rationalist model of rule over nature realized in capitalism's globalized praxis. Art. 395 of Ecuador's constitution insists the state guarantees a sustainable development model balanced in relation to nature, which respects cultural diversity, maintains biodiversity and the capacity of the natural renewal of the eco-systems and ensures the well-being of present and future generations

The Left has something to preserve... The first task of radical dissidents is to remind their publicof the achievements of the 20th century and to speak about the likely consequences of the light-minded zeal with which these achievements are dismantled."
