Welcome to New Renaissance Magazine, the online Edition
New Renaissance Magazine is an online journal offering a holistic view of developments in the arts, science, culture, society, politics, spirituality and lots more.
In December 1989 we published the first printed version of New Renaissance Magazine, working on a small A-4 printing press in Mainz, Germany and using ancient computers and the first desk top publishing programs.
Times have changed and now here is New Renaissance magazine in a completely online format. We published the print edition right up till 2005 but have now suspended the print edition in favor of putting everything online. Take a look around and browse the categories or use the search feature to find what you need.
In case you are wondering, New Renaissance is published by Renaissance Universal (RU). RU is composed of individuals located around the world who are inspired by the social and spiritual philosophy of P.R. Sarkar. The aim of RU is to bring about a socially just and healthy human society.

Today’s Issues in Music Highlighted in Songs for Social Change
The recently-released CD, Songs for Social Change, features a cross-genre’ mix of hiphop, reggae, funk, world-beat, folk and more, exploring issues such as homelessness, economic inequality, police brutality, racism and war in its eight-song line-up. Songs for Social Change, produced by the Renaissance Artists and Writers Association (RAWA) is the result of a 2016 contest that attracted more than 350 entries. (CD available at www.rawa.net.).
Formed in 1958, RAWA is a worldwide movement of artists, writers and musicians working to restore art to its role as an instrument for social change and awakening. Doug Watson, head of RAWA’s U.S. chapter, was overwhelmed by the response to their first-year contest. Entries are now being accepted at www.rawa.net for the 2017 Songs for Social Change contest.
“We are looking for songs that will open people’s eyes to the problems that exist in today’s world,” Watson said, “and inspire them to make the changes that will build a better tomorrow.” Last year’s winner received $500, noted Watson. The 2017 winner will receive $750.“All of the finalists had good songs,” said Watson of the 2016 contest. “It was hard to pick a winner.”
The lead-off song on the CD is the winning entry, We Are One, from One World Tribe, an eclectic group of musicians working out of Pittsburg, PA and Buffalo, NY. One World Tribe features national recording artist and two-time Grammy Award-winner Terrance Simien.
Alkaline vs Ac >By Ramesh Bjonnes
Are you confused about all the hoopla about whether an alkaline diet is good for you or not? Have you started to think that drinking lots of water and juice to become alkaline is just another diet hype? Then you are not alone.
Just Google the concepts, or go on youtube, and you will hear from various experts claiming to tell the truth. Vegan and raw food proponents will tell you that alkaline food is important, because an acidic body is an unhealthy and toxic body. While experts who adhere to the paleo or the ketogenic diets, which are high in animal protein, will claim that the need for alkaline food is just a myth. So who is telling the truth?
The End of the Neoliberal Era
By Dr. Ed McKenna
Neoliberalism can be broadly defined by 2 tenets:
Capital should be permitted to flow globally in markets unhampered by government regulation, and
When government intervention is required (largely to protect private property) it should be the result of decisions arrived at through a democratic process.
This view has dominated world thinking since the 1970s, and especially so since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. But there are increasing signs that this dominance is now coming to an end. The rise of China has raised serious questions as to whether capitalist economic systems coupled with authoritarian political regimes might not perform at least as well as democratic capitalism. More ominously, the rise of authoritarian regimes in countries such as Poland, Hungary, and Turkey has raised the issue of whether democracy itself might be in decline. Serious scholars have raised the question of whether even the United States, the wellspring of Neoliberalism, might be in danger of becoming an authoritarian state. The possible decline of Neoliberalism stems from a number of factors. At the most practical level, neoliberalism has failed to produce the economic security that its adherents promised. This failure, in turn, has led to a deeper understanding of how markets actually work, an understanding that seriously challenges the view that unregulated market outcomes will benefit even a majority of people, much less everyone.
The Economics of a Three-Tiered Economy
by Mark Friedman
PROUT (The Progressive Utilization Theory) advocates a three-tiered economy, including a privately-owned small business sector, a sector of cooperatives where most production and commerce will take place, and a sector of large government owned and operated firms. Let us look into the rationale for each sector.
Size Matters: Small Business
Under a PROUT system only small firms can be owned by individuals or small partnerships. There are several reasons to restrict private ownership to small firms, involving both economic efficiency and economic justice. But some private ownership helps create a lively and varied economy.
