In your opinion, what is the greatest ethical challenge facing the world today? #essaycontest2017.

        The world today seeks peace, unity, harmony and oneness. That is why man seeks various dimensions to sustain peace and unity.

       However, I believe the greatest ethical challenge facing the world today is “Selfism”. Selfism can be defined as the practice of focusing concern and effort on the needs of the self.

#Cyberpeacefare #The Power of Intention #Dr Wayne W Dyer

"Connectors appreciate the world and everything in it. The same connection that they  experience with nature they feel toward all beings, including those who lived before and those who have yet to arrive.  They have a consciousness of the oneness, and therefore they make no distinction such as them or those other people.......Therefore connectors aren't surprised when synchronicity or coincidence brings them the fruits of their intention........"  Dr. Wayne W.

Slowing the Proliferation of Major Conventional Weapons with Jonathan D. Caverley

The news is full of discussions on how to prevent further nuclear proliferation. But you can't understand a conflict like Syria without talking about major conventional weapons, such as artillery, missile defense, and aircraft, says military strategist Jonathan Caverley. Since the U.S. is by far the world's largest producer of such weapons, Caverley proposes that it creates a cartel, similar to OPEC, to slow down sales.

Fractured Continent: Europe's Crises and the Fate of the West, with William Drozdiak

In some ways Europe is more fragmented than at any time in the last three decades, says Drozdiak. There's a north/south split between wealthy creditor nations and deeply indebted ones; an east/west divide, as Poland and Hungary revert to nationalism; pressures of regional separatism; Brexit; and the migrant crisis. Then there's Trump, who sees Europe as a burden and economic rival. 2018 could be a pivotal year. What will happen?
