Social Apathy: Why do we choose to look away?

Social Apathy: Why do we choose to look away? I will never forget the day when I turned “bad.” It was hot and humid in tropical Cambodia and the sun had already awoken from its slumber hours ago. With glistening beads of sweat streaming down their faces, two girls, no more than 10 years old, approached me and put forth a basket of handmade bracelets, each covered in a fine layer of dirt. A sign below one of the girl’s baskets read “1 for 1,000 riel.” A measly 25 cents. Yet I was quick—too…See More

Posted on December 30, 2016 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

As the sun dipped beneath the horizon to draw December 19, 2016 to a close, millions of cheery lights in all shades of red, green, and yellow flickered to life, showering Berlin in a warm glow. Men, women, and children merrily walked the streets by Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, unaware that by 8:02 PM, 12 people would lay dead and another 56 would be injured in a truck attack which ISIL claimed responsibility for. The recent ‘2016 Berlin Attack’ is but one of the many…

The Living Legacy of WWI: Jane Addams & Her Cosmopolitan Ethics, with Seiko Mimaki

"What distinguished Addams from other peace advocates was her strong emphasis on the crucial role of marginalized people, such as women, immigrants, and workers, in the peacemaking process," says Seiko Mimaki. Her views are highly relevant today, when people see themselves as abandoned by global elites. Unlike that of Woodrow Wilson, her vision of cosmopolitanism "pursued freedom and opportunity for everyone, not just for a privileged few."

What do Americans (Republican Voters) Actually Think?

We hear all sorts of assumptions as to what American voters—and now specifically Republican voters who may or may not serve as the basis for President Trump's support—think and believe about U.S. foreign policy. Do they have affection for Putin and Russia? Are they skeptical of free trade?

The People vs. Democracy: Why Our Freedom Is in Danger and How to Save It, with Yasch Mounk

Harvard's Yascha Mounk argues that liberalism and democracy are coming apart, creating new forms of illiberal democracy (democracy without rights) and undemocratic liberalism (rights without democracy). Populist leaders are flourishing; indeed, Hungary is on the verge of descending into dictatorship, with shamefully little criticism from the Europe or the U.S. What are the causes of this phenomenon? What can we do about it?
