    Ideas are restricted on the planet everywhere. Dont know why, but have the strong feeling, that we are moving back to the dictatorship and kingship systems. Corruption, violence, brutality is at its peak, and the freedom of speech and representation, which is enlisted as the first fundamental right is no longer left as stated.

    Isn’t it the stone age arrival?
