das haus mit der roten fahne

what an interesting experience! friends of mine took me to a film presentation in the old communist movement center in munich: das haus mit der roten fahne (the house with the red flag).

it was a little bit like a museum: old but still working and operating printery, library, meeting rooms, cinema, bar, storehouse, many many old (+ new) posters and flyers, ...
well, the communist groups use to meet here for more than 40 years, but now wants the city of munich (the house owner) shut it down ;-(
the printery (and cinema)
about the (finance) crisis in greece
the library (and meeting room)
the neighborhood
few more pictures here

we have watched sergej eisenstein's silent film the general line (also know as 'old and new' which is the direct russian translation) about celebration of the collectivization of agriculture .... there was so much poverty shown in the soviet villages and also the factory workers have to work probably 12+ hours a day then, so in that context made communist ideas a lot of sense, if you asked me.
unfortunately, the whole eastern europe and all other socialists countries did not reached communism, but developed a dictotorship of (communist) politbureau instead. sooooo sad ...

ANYWAY, our wealthy and reckless society can't develop much further the current way as we destroy humans and especially out environment + nature at a brutal speed, so we have to change the way we think and act => Я Ξ √ Ω L U T ↑ ☼ N

if you asked me, the best way into a peaceful and sustainable future is the path, which jacque fresco described (resource based economy without money & monetary system. it is not utopia, just listen to this genius architect & inventor):
