Same as it Never was

Nationalism, much like the United States of America, seems to have a hard time existing within a state of moderation. They both seem to come with fine print inscribing, “all or nothing”. Nationalism seems to have been custom made for the “red, white, and blue”, and truly, it has come to be included in many areas of life, ranging from the macro level of global impact in reference to economic nationalism, all the way down to the micro level, nationalistic pride of a single individual. Though it affects various aspects of life, at its core nationalism is about identity. It is a collective distinctness; pride and sense of belonging to one’s community. This “we” mentality can be a powerful tool for community building. It…

THINK ABOUT THIS!

Posted by Kalamya Peace on December 6, 2016 at 7:25pm 0 Comments

Being a teenager,the word ethics often makes me scrunch my face and shy away from the issue simply because it sounds overwhelming and obviously adultlike. Just like the word coleslaw,one needs to get their heads out of the clouds and look closely at what could be if one really took interest and then discover the sweetness.

Taking interest in ethics and specifically global ethics was a huge step in the right direction for me as it enabled me see the world,people and relations in a completely different angle. An angle of importance and urgency because unity and love among us as citizens of this world is something we all should take interest in.

      If you as a citizen of this world and recognized member of the global ethics network don't strive to create a safe haven for us all, then who will?

"Peace is not the work of a single day, nor will it be the consequence of a single act. Yet every constructive act contributes to its growth; every omission impedes it. Peace will come, in the end, if it comes at all, as a child grows to maturity - slowly, imperceptibly, until we realize one day in incredulous surprise that the child is almost grown." Adlai E. Stevenson

(The hope for world peace, in a cyber connected social media world, can activated/amplified by each of us expressing our deep yearning for a better world through using the personal cyber power at our finger tips i.e, conducting cyberpeacefare.) CyberPeaceGadfly
