Smog has remained as a major threat to the residents in Beijing for almost 5 years. In 2013, smog became the center of public debate. However, the issue continued to exist. The picture was taken in December 29, 2017 in my school. The air is still pungent and noxious; the sky is still monotonous and depressive. Smog is like an intangible chain twined over Beijing. It is hard to unlock but not impossible, nevertheless. The key to open it must be somewhere yet nobody knows. It seemed formidable and perpetual so we must strive hard to combat smog.

Global Ethics Weekly: A Blue Wave for Foreign Policy? with Nikolas Gvosdev

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev and host Alex Woodson discuss what U.S. foreign policy could look like if Democrats take Congress in November and/or the White House in 2020. What do Bernie Sanders' views on international affairs have in common with "America First"? Is there space for a more centrist policy? And after the 2016 election, is the U.S. still able to effectively promote democracy abroad?

Korea & the "Republic of Samsung" with Geoffrey Cain

Korea expert Geoffrey Cain talks about his forthcoming book, "The Republic of Samsung," which reveals how the Samsung dynasty (father and son) are beyond the law and are treated as cult figures by their employees--rather like the leaders of North Korea. He also discusses the prospects for peace on the Korean peninsula--is Trump helping or hurting?--and the strange and sensational story behind the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye.

Identity: The Demand for Dignity and the Politics of Resentment, with Francis Fukuyama

The rise of global populism is the greatest threat to global democracy, and it's mainly driven not by economics, but by people's demand for public recognition of their identities, says political scientist Francis Fukuyama. "We want other people to affirm our worth, and that has to be a political act." How is this playing out in the U.S., Europe, and Asia? What practical steps can we take to counteract it?
