About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learning and applying Inclusive Democracy concepts

ABOUT ME

I don't know how could I describe myself; I suppose people who know me would say I'm cheerful, very curious and always willing to learn something new; I think I'm also a hard-working person and really concern and worried about the problems that humanity is facing up.

I like to spend my time with my friends, chating with them, and with my dogs (I really like animals). I like reading books, listening to music, going to excursions, learning about the nature, doing handicrafts, painting, dancing...

PHILOSOPHY

"Don't be scared about the ruins we will inherit, because we bring a new world in our hearts" Durruti

Interests

As I'm studying economics and laws, I like to talk about how the system works, and how could we change it. I also enjoy the philosophical discussions and I always try to learn as much as I can from the people I meet.

Recently, I'm learning about the Inclusive Democracy project, theorized by Takis Fotopoulus. I invite everybody to learn about this; it really looks like the best and maybe unique way we could change this sick and destructor system.

I'm also really worried about the destruction of the nature and the protection of the human and animal rights. I think the root causes of the unequal quality of life of the different people and the ecological destruction is the capitalist system and its philosophy of "never ending" economical growth. Also the concentration of power that the State protects, makes impossible for people to decide directly by themselves how do they want to organize their life and the society and economics structure.

Music, Movies & Books

Novels: kundera, thomas mann, orwell, marquez, Murakami... I try to read all the books I can, and I always have borrowed books! I love reading other people books, to know what do they like to read.

I really like philosophical books, and recently I'm becoming really interested in a range of books which are helping me to argue against the capitalist system, such as those from the spanish writer Felix Rodrigo Mora, Kropotkin, Takis Fotopoulus; I also like books about working sociologic, such as S.Weil, Sennet or Habermas

movies: V for Vendetta!!

music: nirvana, bob marley, ACDC, muse, the pixies, placebo, incubus, garbage, foo fighters, bad religion, spanish rock (Marea, Extremoduro, la fuga), spanish rumba (canteca, ojos de brujo, la troba...) , reggea, etc...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Teach, Learn, Share

I really like when I can learn something from the people I meet; I'm very curious and I love discussing about society, humanity, political situation, philosophy, etc. I also like learning about natural sciences (As I said, I love animals but I'm also very interested in plants and botanic)

Instead of teaching something, I can help people to reflect about subjects they never wondered before.
