 Por Claudio A. Dourado de Oliveira

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. Não esqueçamos que socialistas e capitalistas de todos os tipos se enfrentaram e ainda se enfrentam no quadrilátero do desenvolvimento e do progresso (Acosta, 2016).

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. They are also seen but not heard i.e. the voiceless and marginalized living in the rural areas.
