#Cyberpeacefare "Great Majority" AlfredESmith

"The thing we have to fear in this country, to my way of thinking, is the iNFLUENCE OF ORGANIZED MINORITIES because somehow or other the GREAT MAJORITY does not seem to organize. They seem to feel that they are going to be effective because of their own strength but they give no expression of it."

#Cyberpeacefare #Civilized World - Daniel Webster

"............and the civilized world seems at last proceeding to the conviction of that fundamental and manifest truth, that the powers of government are but a trust and that they cannot be lawfully exercised but for the good of the community.  As knowledge is more and more extended, this conviction becomes more and more general."

(Seems to me in this 21st Century, "World-Wide Web-Information Age" knowledge is more and more extended" than 19th Century Webster's times.  Uprisings for…

#Cyberpeacefare #Ridiculous/Sublime

"The sublime and the ridiculous are often so nearly related that it is difficult to class them separately. One step above the sublime makes the ridiculous, and one step above the ridiculous makes the sublime again."  Thomas Paine/Age of Reason

#Cyberpeacefare George Bernard Shaw Quotes:

"A man of great common sense and good taste, meaning thereby a man without originality or moral courage."

"Do you think that things people make fools of themselves about are any less real and true than the things they behave sensibly about ? They are more true; they are the only things that are true."

"The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them; but to be indifferent to them; that's the essence of inhumanity."

#Cyberpeacefare #Unknown Soldier /HeywoodBroun

"The body of the Unknown Soldier has come home, but his spirit will wander with that of his brothers. There will be no rest for his soul until the great democracy of death has translated into the unity of life. Isolation ends at the edge of the grave. Whatever the estate of the dead, they are not divided by prejudice of race or nationality. To them, at least, all things are common.

But that is not good enough. If there are to be no more wars, the men and women of the world…

#Cyberpeacefare #War

"War, moreover, displays as do few undertakings the grim and the great in human nature. It produces death and destruction while generating innovation in organization, technology, ethics and law,  It unleashes cruelty and exposes cowardice, while inspiring camaraderie and courage. It produces regimentation, obedience, and a concentration on self-preservation even as it cultivates leadership, instills a sense of duty, and honors principles worth dying for." Peter Berkowitz Wall Street…

#Cyberpeacefare "Let There Be Peace On Earth" /Song Lyrics

"Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.

Let there be peace on earth

The peace that was meant to be

With God our Father

Brothers all are we

Let me walk with my brother

In perfect harmony

Let Peace begin with Me."

#CYBERPEACEFARE #FAVORITE QUOTES

"To see the earth as we now see it, small and blue and beautiful in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see ourselves as riders on the earth together, brothers in that bright loveliness in the unending night - brothers who see now they are truly brothers."  Archibold MacLeish

#Cyberpeacefare "Beyond Freedom & Dignity" BF Skinner Excerpts:

1. 'TO WORK FOR PEACE WE MUST DEAL WITH "WILL TO POWER" OR PARANOID DELUSIONS OF LEADERS; WE MUST REMEMBER THAT WARS BEGIN IN THE MINDS OF MEN, THAT THERE IS SOMETHING SUICIDAL IN MAN - A DEATH INSTINCT PERHAPS - WHICH LEADS TO WAR, AND THAT MAN IS AGGRESIVE BY NATURE."

The American Dream/James Truslow Adams

"The American Dream .......has been a dream of being able to grow to the fullest development, as man and woman, unhampered by barriers which had been slowly erected in older civilizations, unrepressed by social orders which had developed for the benefit of classes rather than for the single human being of any and every class.  And that dream has been realized more fully in actual life here than anywhere else, though very imperfectly even among ourselves"

The Living Legacy of the First World War

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.

Myanmar and the Plight of the Rohingya, with Elliott Prasse-Freeman

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.

Global Ethics Weekly: The Right to Science, with Helle Porsdam

The right to benefit from scientific progress was enshrined in the United Nations' 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, explains University of Copenhagen's Professor Helle Porsdam. Unfortunately, many people, including scientists and policymakers, don't know much about it. How was the right to science developed? What are examples? And, with an anti-science administration in the White House today, what are the contentious issues?
