As lógicas antropocêntricas do capitalismo enquanto civilização dominante e com os diversos socialismos reais que existiram até agora – deverão ser repensados a partir de posturas sociobiocêntricas e não serão atualizados simplesmentemudando seus sobrenomes.

We must agree as a nation, that several mistakes have been made in our land deals in recent years. We were stampeding in the wrong direction without adequately consulting beneficiaries i.e. those who are directly affected, those individuals and groups who suffer if anything goes wrong.
