#cyberpeacefare #Adam Smith

"It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.  We address ourselves not to their humanity but their self love."

"SPIRIT OF MODERATION"/Learned Hand

"What is the spirit of moderation ? It is the temper which does not press a partisan advantage to its bitter end. Which can understand and will respect the other side; which feels a unity between all citizens -real and not the factitious product of propaganda; which recognizes their common fate and aspirations - in a word, which has faith in the sacredness of the individual.

If you ask me how such a temper and faith are fostered, I cannot…

"All of us have to put the national interest ahead of personal interest.

The question is not how much we are entitled to as individuals. The question is how much can we now each contribute...."Charles E Wilson

A shapeless mass, A bag of rules;

And each must make, Ere life is flown.

#cyberpeacefare "Sin of Omission" /Margaret E Sangster

"It isn't the thing you do;

It's the thing you leave undone,

Which gives you a bit of heartache

At the setting sun.

Out of a brother's way,

The bit of heartsome counsel

You were too hurried to say.

"Always a Way" Grace E.Easley

"There's always a way, but we have to try,

Though life is a gift to you and I,

We can't expect to merely sit,

With never an effort to merit it.

There's always a way, though the going's rough,

And only our best is good enough,

We haven't the time to count each loss,

If the bridge is out, we swim across."

("If at first you don' succeed, try-try-try.....again !")

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?

Future Politics, with Jamie Susskind

There are three major technological developments that are transforming the way we live, says Jamie Susskind: increasingly capable systems, increasingly integrated technology, and increasingly quantified society. With these we are moving into the "digital lifeworld," which is basically a different stage of human existence. What will these momentous changes mean for the future of politics and society--i.e. how we order our collective lives?
