#Cyberpeacefare #American Democracy #Arthur M.Schlesinger

"The American democracy must discover a middle ground between making a President a Czar and making him a puppet. The problem is to devise means of reconciling a strong and purposeful Presidency with equally strong and purposeful forms of democratic control. Or to put it succinctly, we need a strong Presidency - but a strong Presidency within the Constitution."  Arthur M Schlesinger

The Value of Breaching The Digital Divide

Modern International Affairs analysis is often putting forth the perspective that increased access to technology will always benefit populations. This is true, but why? A 2011 Mckinsey Global Institute Report “Internet Matters: The Net’s Sweeping Impact on Growth, Jobs, and Prosperity” found that in the countries studied (mature economies) the internet accounted for 10% of GDP growth over the past 15 years. Now, internet connectivity has exploded since 2011, and there are a …

Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Sustainable Production

I write on the eve of so-called “Cyber Monday”.  There are however two key questions I am interested in. First, are more expensive clothes really more sustainable? and Second, if not which brands can I trust to purchase from?

The traditional assumption that clothes that cost more must be better, that brands like  Massimo Dutti, Hugo Boss, Prada, Max Mara,  Dolce & Gabanna,  or Versace (where an item could easily cost you well above $ 2,000 USD), must pay their workers a fair sum,…

Nationalism: It's Just Not That Simple.

Stepping out of Shinjuku Station, you enter into an ordered chaos that is utterly overwhelming.  Voices call out from billboards selling services and products; people swarm about in a frenzy that seems choreographed from the lack of accidents; all with a sheer volume that inspires sensory overload, blurring the mind to everything else.

The organized chaos is even more frenzied as campaigning politicians blare their platforms from loudspeaker equipped vans driving along the streets…

Is nationalism an asset or hindrance in today's globalized world?

“The morning bell has rung, A new dawn has risen

Let us all get up and recreate our village”

Remove the thatched houses, broaden the road,

Trim a verdant hill

Let us all fight and work with iron will, rebuild our fatherland

Our liveable village, we create it ourselves”

Nationalism: Globalization's Perfect Complement

Without a doubt, nationalism is an asset in today’s globalized world. Nationalism refers to economic nationalism, which should be viewed as a school of thought that is reflected in governmental policies that place primary emphasis on a specific nation’s economic interests ahead of those of other nations (“Nationalism.” The Merriam-Webster Dictionary. 11th ed., 2003). Economic nationalism, and not any other form of…
