Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I have been traveling the world engaging in various humanitarian activities with small teams of people who are helping those in need. I also teach Ethics, Corporate Social Responsibility, and International Integration & Regional Trade to undergraduate and graduate students around the world.
I have come to realize teaching future leaders that they have an ethical responsibility to make the world a better place is a great start for creating a more peaceful world. However, I have come to realize that more can be done, and should be done associated with developing domestic policies and trade agreements that are benefitial for all those involved. It all starts with a respect and honor for humanity...which is the beginning of any talk concerning ethics.
Ethics is nothing else than reverence for life. - Albert Schweitzer

"The analogy that is at the heart of this book is about a jungle and a garden," says Robert Kagan. "In order to have a garden and sustain a garden, you've got to be constantly gardening. For me at least, that is a good analogy for this liberal world order, which itself is an unnatural creation which natural forces are always working to undermine." Human nature has not fundamentally changed, and this peaceful period is an aberration.
Five Fellows from "The Living Legacy of the First World War" project present their work. Their talks cover the history of war-induced psychological trauma and how it has been dealt with in the U.S. military; the impact of the defense industry's profit motive on U.S. foreign policy; haunting photos of severely facially disfigured soldiers; the legacy of press censorship during WWI; and the humanitarianism of Jane Addams.
The Rohingya are seen as fundamentally 'other,' says Prasse-Freeman. "Hence, even if they have formal citizenship, they wouldn't really be accepted as citizens, as full members of the polity." Could Aung San Suu Kyi have done more to prevent the persecution? How important was the hate speech on Facebook? How can the situation be resolved? Don't miss this informative and troubling conversation.
