In 1493 Columbus make a special gift to spanish king a lot of "primitive people" carried from the new discovered lands.Certainly Columbus was nor a scientist but this fact was the begining in the mankind history of the human zoo concept also called as african villages in Europe during XIX Century who was the golden age in France,Belgium,Germany,England and other countries.
The concept was very simple,show to the populations wild and primitive peoples as exotics people in the limit of human concept.
Even more some says that was a specimen linking the great appes and man.In fact in a Bronx Zoo a congolese pygmy was put in the same place with the great simios in 1906.But were the world Fair the place of election to show this" primitives".In Paris World Fair of 1889 28 millions of avid french people went to see a "Negro Village".With proud were hosted at a Jardin Zoologique de Acclimatation and the hidden idea is show to european population the avantages to african countries of arrival of the white man " civilization".The colonialism take avantage of the material avantages of western civilization to promotes incorporation of underdevoleped peoples with the most preciated instrument of his technology,the weapons and represented by his armies.A new "culture "arrives and was necesary to disrupt all the social and cultural networks existent to impose the modernism only
way according not only of politician of 19 Century besides by scientists who thinks that was good for the mankind advance reproduce in this primitive societies the european model of education,politics and culture.Nobody said yet this western offer must be free of charge,african,asian, or latino american countries must pay with his natural resources the cost of administation.The common man in France,Germany,Belgium,England an Holland thinks in his back thinking that this was a very fair business to both sides.
In 1931 in Paris in a other world fair was coronated by the colonial exibitions reproduced in other cities as Marseille.Only in Paris 35 millions of people went to see the poor primitives who his government was saving from "ignorance",diseases and inculture.The price was also fair and this night they went to bed with his spirit in peace,after make commments with his wifes.
After the Second World War the nightmares of racism,a first class barbarian actions seems vanished.But in all the world remain many domination areas by western potences eufemistic called "protectorates",as part of commonwealth nations or more simple adding to the nations name the name of the other protecting countries,French Indochina or Belgian Congo.
But the show not ended in 1958 and 2005 many europeans has the oportunity of
to increase his cultural background going to observe the activities of the african villages habitants reproduced in a very realistic way in his own territory.

When somebody receives lend money to avoid a bankrupcy in certain way he loose the property of the business,This are a gold rule of free market culture.In the measures taken by US Treasury Department with more money rushing to crushed banks,oficial autorities are thinking that is better to reasure public opinion and confidence asume the property of all banks in problems.
For many time money baron not only in USA even in all the world make another dogmatic statment that inside management of money papers was at last a private area with no public or at least minimun state presence.The problem come today when the financial sistems fails to solve the cash flow of money working and must the state who lend the money in a contraversial decition
made acording american authorities by people economic security.Are really The brain thinking advisers of Bush and the economic authorities thinking in solve the individual economic problem for every citizen in America en the rest of world afected by the crisis?.I think the answer is not.Perhaps a marginal consecuences of the salvatage action could be this one.But the most important concern of them are other tiny group of society affected also in his pockets who are the banks owners,the boss of all great societies who fuel his hug international business with cheaper money and extraordinary good payement conditions who dont have common people to obtain huge utilities, the most went to pay millionaries past incomes who garantize in the future a economic security for at least teen generation of money baron decendents.
Besides nobody seems asume guilty of past actions.In a peculiar psicological condition all the reason appears as natural induced as a Economic Katrina,no way and without intervention of other person to avoid the crisis result of bad practices of a financial sistem who was not centered on real people necesities.Earning money was a goal in itself, ouside of the thinking that must be to solve human needed actions with priorities given by the principle of international social justice.
Now the economic world landscape seems at least dark because the solution is outside
of real roots of problem.Political authorities in USA ,Europe and other wealthy economies must make a bond with the emergents social and political authorities in a first steep to solve the coyuntural issue,but more important with third world societies.The clue of go out to a healthy economy is and for this the first task is make a brain washing action of economists working not only in governmemts of USA or Europe even in international banking and financial institutions .Is needed a World Economic Union Plan with political and social real democratic consensus based in this new ethical paradigma who clean the international arena of bad practices as speculative markets,dark economic actions as weapons hidden traffics,lending money to finance corrupts governments
for economics reasons of geopolitic.A no incentive to finance industrial complex to produce innecesary goods,contaminate planet,regulation about military expending.Western subscription of Kioto Protocol.Norms of public information of money world circulation market and about also the control of separate rols of public an private actors with punition of peoples who are in both sectors taking decitions to give avantages to his owned privates economics societies.A new organization of International banking sistem.Gived power to ONU to accord rules of conducts in international economics regulation.A globalized world must have a globalized economic set of rules and a country who infringe them must be punished in the same way as a war by economics reasons to a tiny country or for etnic cleaning reason.The countries who infringe this rules must be banned.The degree of human development reached by human societies in the begining of XXI century must be the accord with a new conduct code,is not fair use a obsolet one based in dogmatics principles made 200 years ago who is as a old house damaged by the time,weather,wars bombardent and at last by termites who is eating the house foundations,painting the house exterior no solve the problem.

Are not oficial records but 250.000 a 300.000 are haitian childs in a slavery condition.We talk in 2008 not in Middle Age.And they are used as a informal work reserve.Of course without pay.One of the degradants works is servant mainly carring water from a very far reservoir to the booses house:imagine a 6 six years old girl with a heavy drum plenty of water walking 5 Many are given by the fathers because they cannot afford his basic needs.E are more vulnerable to be exploitabled because a huge number of them dont have a birth document,they dont exist.The law is against them even when says thar over 15 years old must be pay,the alternative is throw them to the street or continues unpaid as houses servants.A bizzarre tradition or child slavery?Of course es a barabarian form of slavery openly accepted not only for haitian society even by political authorities.A amount of them are conducted in the clandestinity to other countries with better incomes but the childs slaves remain in the same economic situation,even worst because are far from even the ausent own
families.Course the never went to a school.The name in creole is restaveks who means stay with.In social terms they are private property of the lord of the house.But the cruelty dont ended in the physical conditions besides they are forbiden to talk without permission,the are beaten,even forbiden to allowed to display his own emotions this is considerated a great fault and a punition is given.Some people says before the haitian republican statment slavery existed and also restaveks institution.The international comunity sent soldiers to mantain civil order in haiti.But is a order when childs populatioon are in these conditions?This is a social sin,for less great countries has invaded other poweless as Haiti in name of God,justice and freedom. Are information the sell of children in Haiti border,the equivalent of more or less 100 US for a child ownership.In the same market where chikens and macaroni are sold.Unpaid job as servant is for most of them the first decendent step in his life forced prostitution could be next. The impunity of child owners that in many cases they make claims to some hospital or charity institution when a boy or girl escape and take refuge with visible signals or abuse including body induced desformation in his shoulders or chest products od heavy weigths on his backs.The claims are so unethical that the request include money back if the boy or girl is not delivered.
These are facts older published but the child conditions in Haiti es more or less the same.Some says in a society who lost the dignity in older generations the only hope are the news represented by childs.But when in this case both are lost,the only hope are decent people in a globalized world.Some writer one time wrote when a man die a part of me also dead.In Haiti a part of ourself each day lost a piece.

Press and media refers them as minorities.Are very poor people living in the outside of Mexico City or in Harlem,peasants in Cambodia or Brazil,african workers in Spain or France.Ilegales from Mexico in USA or hahitians in Canada.You must add the minorities excluded by other reasons in many societies as womens in some muslim countries.The VIH sick people mostly in Africa.The homosexual and lesbian population in all the world.Some people thinks is a necesary product of Post Modern World.If you see the societies in Western World has created a new social class if you add all minorities,the outsiders.And in the results of addition is they are a mayority but without united power.Without political representation in the Governments and excluded
of the fruits of modernity.In many andean countries a lot of people of originary people born and lives all his life with no electricity,no newspappers,no cinema,even the reference world is the land,the valley and a small town without contact with the outside world.many of them aged people has dont see the sea never in his life.But the rest of the world see this events as a God design a natural condition.The stereotips says the are poor but very happy people,a idealistic condition like news tiny paradises plenty of nature and uncontaminated landscapes.But is wrong.In Ecuator some time ago the water sources were contaminated by oil explotation.In Brazil many rural residents has no land at all.The Without Land Movement,millions fo people living in poverty because they are mostly in poor villages with ocasional workers but is aims to follov in the rurality as a life option is now a inhuman condition.Other part of the stereotip are made by the tourism bussiness.Amazonia,Macu Pichu, are icon of beautifull places,forgotten that they are a kind of burial sites of old cultures made for a olds and widsom cultures vanished by the modernity arrival.The outsiders and the social debt are parts of the same paradigma.
For outsiders the principal achieve of modernity democracy means not much.In latin america many social leaders or analysts make a scandal when in Ecuator,Bolivia and even in Venezuela by free elections Contituyents asemblies where news actors in political arena.Iis only a buterflie breath after a huracan.But Is not a utopic theory dream that one of the results of financial crush in western world could be a new political paradigma.If the outsiders by legal means and united actions make news political and social referents could be possible that they obtain not only a better life condition and a more ethical social order

I am not economist,but a people not must be a doctor to know that is healthy or sick.This because Wall Street last facts make me thinks that something wrong goes in economy in USA.
Not now but lasting for many times ago.Is a cultural feature in american people or not facing economical facts?. A common sense say that economy actions are make to full human needs.Is not a a good argument say that market laws are conducing economy is men in the last moment is taking decitions.A tipical issue are wars ass Viet Nam or Irak wars.The american involvement in these wars was a political choice.But en both cases the history said arguments given by political leaders in power was incorrect.Now USA has close relationships with Vietnam government and the mind of vietnamese people is the same about the war.Other case Irak, never was clear the american invasion to Irak.But all include a big proportion of public opinion say yes to Bush administration.No masive destruction weapons were never founded.Conclusion many civilian and american soldiers dead or wounded,a powerfull military machine in a other soil country ,a huge amount of money wasted and without visible results even economic.No freedom,no terrrorism ended or founded,no a free election in Irak as result of american presence.The question were these action usefull to american economy and society?Certainly not.In the actual economic situation is very similar economics facts are many powerfull and old banking institution with problems to recover money lended to other branchs of the systems that cannot pay.The problem is that information about the money market is without transparency.People make faith that all banking bussiness are made with strongs ethical frames.But the results says other thing.The money losted in Wall Street is enough to end the hunger an diseases in a 30% of mankind in Asia an latin America.
Free Market roots are not a blind conducted economy always are human people on rear of economical curtains.Ethics has failed and speculation has a big winner in the fall of shares in all world.People who buy and sell oil,minerals,foods,and money without money.The landscape is dark because money saved represents works of many people during many years a life perhaps.
Is no moral say a people that money went away by the market crushing.America was founded with many lifes and work of many people.That was the american principal capital.Now must be the same but the condition is return to the same spirit of the founders.A strong belief that work and men are more important than money and economy must be made to help his real needs, a solidarity basis of a future economy is the only solution.Societies are make by a network of many peoples and all the last economic facts shows that a democracy works when a equility share of revenues is gived to all human beings not only in USA also in the world but dont work when a few money barons see the world including human beings as a private issue.

Bolivia social and politics never has been very peacefull.But with Morales at power the crisis is in his high level.
The point is if the oldest issues of the bolivian society can solve after the last riots en the provinces who contest the Morales admendements of Contitution an changes in property of gas and land tenure reforms.
Santa Cruz,Pando,Tarija,Beni and Chuquisaca are the richest areas en Bolivia and the regional authorithies
are mostly in the political opossition to Mas,the mouvement of Morales.
Gas,cattle,soya,are on hands of a social right wing social class,instead in la Paz,Cochabamba and other areas mostly are indigen population very poor and back the Evo politics.Bolivia society is one of the most inequal distribution of revenues not only in South America even in the world.One of the clues of solution is inUnasur meeting today in Santiago de Chile.Unasur is a regional asociation of South American countries who excludes USA.Chavez venezuelan president came to the meetins saying that he support Morales in his actions.Besides both sent back the american ambassadors in la Paz and Caracas.Most of Unasur Countries are proclive and very simpathetics to Evo Morales government,Chavez,Lugo the recnt elected Paraguay president,Correa af Ecuator,Tabaré Vasquez of Uruguay and even Cristina Fernandez of Argentina.Only Colombia and Perou are in other perpective.USA is worried about the rise of a new left wing kind of government arriving by free elections to power and with a strong nationalism component as Chavez and with many oil an gas reserves in a crucial economy moment for oil and the rising and recovering paper of Rusia in international affairs including South America the traditional back yard od USA.

This Sunday Paraguay go to elections.The mediterranean tiny country of 6 millions inhabitants must decide if wish a change in his old and conservative institutions or a fragile democracy unchanged by the end of military rule of Stroessner who rules for 40 years the country.Four candidates the favorite in the survey,a ex catholic bishop censored by church autorities and put outside of funtions because his political participation,the 56 years old Fernando Lugo has 34 % of preferences,a woman a former education secretary of state belonginf to Colorado party of the ruling coalition replace the actual president who fail in a constitution reform to go to relection.A general retired of the army Lino Oviedo who was a time in prison by a aborted intent to seize the power years ago and a independent business man.
Tha man under the fire is Lugo by his leftist past and reform proposal specially in agricultural land tenure modifications.Also by his style very similar to Morales or Chavez.But Paraguay has not oil and is betewen Brasil and Argentina two big countries,besides his has ties specialy in military cooperation with USA,Lugo has said he have a own way but in a very conservative society the posibilities of social reform are a hard matter to obtain,always is present the factic powers of Church,the military forces and the owners of land and bussiness who are worried about the posibility of a radical change as Bolivia or Venezuela.But Lugo must be very pacient if he wins because his coalition has many voices and the oposition could be won the congress and the regional administration.Be President could be more dificult task than rule trhe country like a bishop.
