Pal Dragos: Homeopathic Thinking:
What is Pseudo-Homeopathy?

 
Self-determination (autonomy) in contrast to lack of self-determination (heteronomy) is today already an urgent necessity with regards to the powers of self-healing. This is especially true for those who do not exclusively wish to submit themselves passively to collective, conventional (allopathic) medical care. Homeopathic treatment, as a configuration of forces, requires a distinct way of thinking, both on the part of the homeopaths as well as the patients, which can be learned by anyone. With regards to health, however, this way of thinking differs considerably from the one-sided materialistic views in the media.
This book also serves as an introduction to the general view of the human being which is the basis for homeopathy and is necessary in order to lead a full and prosperous lifestyle. With the themed concept “pseudo-homeopathy”, the author issues the warning that many homeopathic methods of treatment used today can sooner harm than help.
In order to help you better familiarise yourself with homeopathic thinking, you will find a list of press releases on the topic of homeopathy in the appendix of the book, all of which were published by the Growth-trend Research Institute.

Pal Dragos: THE MORTAL SINS OF HOMOEOPATHY - Effective organisation of a homoeopathic therapy
 
A large number of homoeopathic prescriptions in Germany fail to have any effect, and in some cases they even cause harm. Anyone truly interested in homoeopathy needs to be aware of the hitherto unknown or suppressed "mortal sins" of homoeopathy. Symptom-oriented treatments, unduly high potencies (megapotencies), etc., can be harmful to your health.
 
The view that "homoeopathy can only do good, but never do harm" is a delusion. This book provides you with advice on how to take stock of your therapy and so become actively involved in the effective organisation of your homoeopathic treatment. This of course also goes for the homoeopathic treatment of cancer, AIDS, and ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder)..

Pal Dragos: The Structure of Global Capitalism Volume 1 + 2

 
Since the 1990's, Stakeholder-Shareholder Value and Corporate Governance can be counted as being amongst the core economic phrases of global capitalism. However, their meaning from a financial-sociological perspective remains largely unexplored.
 
To a backdrop of structural transformation in global capitalism, Pal Dragos investigates the cooperation of these terms, not only from an economical, but also from a social perspective. He warns of the dangers of a one-sided rationalistic view of the world economy.
 
The methodical basis of this investigation is based on Anthony Giddens' Structuration theory, not only used by the author, but placed under scrutiny with regard to its terms. Amongst others, the works of authors as varied as T. W. Adorno, H. Arendt and the 'financial genius' G. Soros are considered.
 
In the context of this subject matter, central issues such as terrorism, anti-Semitism, anti-Americanism or the threatening avian flu pandemic are put into an entirely different light.

Pal Dragos: Homoeopathy or Orthodox Medicine

 
The pursuit of the symptom within orthodox medicine has intensified in recent years, causing a self-perpetuating escalation of the costs involved. Technological progress has made it increasingly easy for symptoms to be repressed. The consequence of this repression is the incessant production of further symptoms. This vicious circle poses a growing risk to patients and makes it increasingly difficult to predict the outcome of treatment. In the worst case scenario, this vicious circle can even end in death. The strategy of orthodox medicine is based on an abstract concept of man which was created in the modern era but is no longer tenable in our postmodern times.
 
Homoeopathy calls for a different concept of man. A distinction must be made between the constitution and the symptoms; the illness itself and the expression thereof, i.e. the symptom, must not be confused. The approach to problem-solving with homoeopathic remedies also differs fundamentally to the way in which chemically-produced substances are used to bring the body into line. In the future it will be up to each and every individual to decide for themselves how to respond to the body's cries for help (illnesses) in the context of their own unique nature: Whether homoeopathy or orthodox medical assistance is the more appropriate option under the given circumstances. These three essays are intended to help you with this decision. They explore the relationship between homoeopathy and orthodox medicine from various perspectives and consider the crucial question of a concept of man appropriate to our times. The right decision as to homoeopathy or orthodox medicine may just save your life.

Martin Papapol: Digital Capitalism
Towards a Manifesto for the New Left

 
The windy rhetoric of politics ("Bullshit") considerably endangers the western democracies. This claptrap occurs because most politicians don't have an idea about the question: "What kind of capitalism we are living in today?"
 
With the description of the structural change since the 1990s including the undetected structural features and functions of "digital capitalism", this book gives an answer to the question. The New Left has to carry out a metamorphosis (and not an abolishment) of current capitalism. Contrary to a "red regression" of the old left, the New Left has the chance to successfully conduct the struggle and conversion of the destructive neo-liberal tendencies in our time. This also requires to argue about the dominance of the one-sided intellectual economic and political science ("intellectualism").
 
In this sense, this book is to be considered as a contribution to the manifesto of the New Left.
