"Twenty-five years ago, a group of us – economists, philosophers, sociologists, and others – set up a network to promote discussion and advocacy of a basic income for everybody in society, as a right. We called the network BIEN, meaning then Basic Income European Network. After a few years, many more people from outside Europe were joining the network. So we renamed the network, BIEN, where the E was changed to Earth. Now we have members from all over the world, with national networks being affiliated to the international BIEN. [...] We have dealt with all the arguments thrown against the idea, and are confident that having a basic income as a social right would help provide the basic security that is essential for any market society. Remember that the idea is that it should be unconditional for all legal residents in society, regardless of a person’s work status, age or marital status."

Sit pax in muris tuis : abundantia in domibus tuis.
"Dêem-lhe todas as satisfações económicas de maneira que não faça mais nada senão dormir, devorar pastéis e esforçar-se por prolongar a história universal; cumulem-no de todos os bens da terra e mergulhem-no em felicidade até à raiz dos cabelos: à superfície de tal felicidade como à tona de água virão rebentar bolhas pequeninas."

"In violent times
You shouldn't have to sell your soul
In black and white
They really really ought to know
Those one track minds
That took you for a working boy
Kiss them goodbye
You shouldn't have to jump for joy
You shouldn't have to shout for joy
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
I'm talking to you
Tears for Fears

"This was the 80's. If the cops brought you to the police station for graffiti in the mid-80's, the other officers would laugh at the arresting officer for bringing you in. It was called a “bad collar.” The officers would poke fun at the arresting officer saying, “This is what you arrested? There’s people killing people. There’s people pumping crack into their veins. There’s people breaking into stores. Robbing, stealing, and raping, and you arrested a little kid who wrote graffiti who’s like 14 years old?” It’s like, “What is that?” So they’d laugh at him. Nowadays, it’s a felony, and if you make a graffiti arrest, it’s considered a very good thing."

“Consta de 3 partes a Pintura, que são as principais; Invenção, Debuxo e Colorido. Em a Invenção consiste toda a consideração da obra disposta como entendimento por representação: vem a ser o plano perspectivo conforme a Historia, a disposição das figuras, a postura de cada hua e a concordancia de tudo. Ao Debuxo pertence dar à execução essa ordem já disposta pelo entendimento, o correcto dos contornos, conforme a Anatomia, a Simitria dos corpos, o proporcionado de cada parte com o todo, as regras da Architectura, Perspectiva e suas diminuições.”
Felix da Costa (in A Antiguidade da Arte da Pintura, 1696)
