Also because there are many people living in N.Y. which…

#Cyberpeacefare #Eternal Peace #Dwight Eisenhower

"Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation can finally lead men to dawn of eternal peace"
At all times, just acts, fair play, considerations that are morally overtoned and unlimited cooperation among and between men/nations/regions will lead us to expected end as one humanity with a common destiny.

Hacksaw Ridge and International Relations

United States was in a full-fledged war with Japan during the World War II, and every able-bodied American men were signing up for the army. Seeing his brother enlisting, and seeing more and more people around him wearing military uniforms, Desmond decides to join the army. However, Desmond is soon faced with a big trouble; he resists bearing arms as a conscientious objector, and even refuses to train on Saturdays, as he is a Seventh-day Adventist.

IS NATIONALISM AN ASSET OR HINDRANCE IN TODAY’S GLOBALIZED WORLD?

As long as there is an existence of race, religion, culture, nation, etc, people will always have growing instinct that craves for nationality. The feeling of self-worth prompts every member of a society to see themselves as equal partners in pleasure and regards, in justice and humiliation. In their feelings of nationality with the romance of patriotism, there grows a political ideology which is called…

#Cybepeacefare #Democracy #Abe Lincoln

"A majority held in restraint by constitutional checks and limitations, and always changing easily with changes of popular opinions and sentiments, is the only true sovereign of a free people." Abraham Lincoln

(This is especially true when the popular vote favors the sentiments of the majority of the people versus the electoral college, which in my opinion, favors a "rigged democratic system" ?  Any comments ?).

Creating and maintaining global excellence.

Most countries in the world encourage their citizens to be proud of where they are from. Countries create holidays like Veterans Day, Flag day, and Independence Day to promote Nationalism. When we analyze these patriotic holidays, we should realize that we are essentially celebrating bigotry and the deaths of many innocent people. We celebrate Columbus Day as the birth of the “greatest nation in the world” but why should we celebrate the fact that people were murdered and robbed from their…

Climate Change and the Power to Act: An Ethical Approach for Practical Progress

We are already living with climate change; and although countries have pledged to limit global warming to 2 °C, success seems highly unlikely. This panel explores how to advance ethical leadership on climate justice globally, nationally, and locally in the years ahead. Topics include the Paris Agreement and commitments going forward, geoengineering governance, the problems in California, and the creative ways the Seychelles are coping.

Greed, Movies, and Capitalism with Ethicist John Paul Rollert

Every capitalist economy struggles with how to come to terms with greed, says John Paul Rollert, an expert on the intellectual history of capitalism. He describes how our perspective has changed from the Christian view of greed as an unalloyed sin, to the 18th century idea that it could bring positive benefits, to the unabashed "Greed is good" ethos in the movie "Wall Street." Where do we stand now? How can we rehabilitate capitalism?
