EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Food is the basis of life. We need it to live. It is as simple as that.

The production of food is...

EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The ruling class is organized and well-funded. What can be done to confront and defeat concentrations of power?

10 Sep, 2018 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Overcoming adversity alone is a tough road to hoe but when you act with others it’s not as difficult. There is nothing like solidarity. There’s unity and strength in numbers.

EN | Shawna Sprowls |

What are individuals to do when faced with a moral imperative? And society at large? Philosophers since ancient times have been wrestling with this question as it involves issues of ethics and conscience. When we see an injustice do we remain passive and silent or do we intervene to try and stop it. Is it our problem or someone else’s?...
