In Gang-Rape Hell: Life in Islamic France

10-08-2003 21:56

Here, young men try to rule their families and neighbors under a macho code drawn partly from Muslim tradition, partly from the violence and porn in the media. Women submit to men, they say.

The Celtic Confederation

10-08-2003 21:06

The Celtic Confederation is mainly a cultural confederation for the Celtic Rim of Europe. However, economic cooperation and developments and international lobbies, mostly at the European (Union), are part of the tasks of the confederation together with education and science policy development.

The New World: rapport about the balanced community of the New World

10-08-2003 20:26

The New World is in initiative for a New World community, based on Pacifism, Socialism, and Environmentalism. Heiko de Graaf and Erik van Luxzenburg have created it at December the 12, 1996 after a medium period of discussing how a New World order has to look like with additions of Ronald Visser. At December the 12 1996, Erik van Luxzenburg completed this report. He also made this translation at February 29 2000. Now it is a years old project of Peacefull Young Idealists from the Netherlands. though created in 1996 it is stil a valid dream. The New World tries to give a general philosophy based on socialist, anarchist and partly kibbuts ideals to create autarkic communities and the ways these communities co-operate as parrallel societies next to the nowadays society.

An update is necessary to invent communities based on this philosophy living in cities or urbanised areas there the original philosophy was based on "empty" areas in Asia
