Since wars begin in the mind, it is the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed.#UNESCO Constitution 1945 (9)
poser:
How can we as humanity construct the defences of peace in the minds/hearts of men?
I think with the advent of innovative technologies,the social media/cyberspace will be a veritable tool to accomplish this task. Wherein, all and sundry will be involved;owing to the ever available Personal Cyber Power (PCP) in the digital world. No one person should be left out in this task, no one person should be indifferent, as it requires a collective action to construct the defences of peace in the minds/hearts of men.

Seems to me it "should be self evident" that all social media users have the PCP to make a contribution to initiate  a world peace viral narrative to counter the social media hatred propaganda of Radical Islam. Also,need authoritative political- interfaith religious scholars to educate usall on the common tenets of Judaism-Christianity-Islam, especially the "golden rule." versus the false and ignorant hatred propaganda of Radical Islam. Cyberpeacefare is a means to this end (preaching to the choir).

The Living Legacy of WWI: Jane Addams & Her Cosmopolitan Ethics, with Seiko Mimaki

"What distinguished Addams from other peace advocates was her strong emphasis on the crucial role of marginalized people, such as women, immigrants, and workers, in the peacemaking process," says Seiko Mimaki. Her views are highly relevant today, when people see themselves as abandoned by global elites. Unlike that of Woodrow Wilson, her vision of cosmopolitanism "pursued freedom and opportunity for everyone, not just for a privileged few."

What do Americans (Republican Voters) Actually Think?

We hear all sorts of assumptions as to what American voters—and now specifically Republican voters who may or may not serve as the basis for President Trump's support—think and believe about U.S. foreign policy. Do they have affection for Putin and Russia? Are they skeptical of free trade?

The People vs. Democracy: Why Our Freedom Is in Danger and How to Save It, with Yasch Mounk

Harvard's Yascha Mounk argues that liberalism and democracy are coming apart, creating new forms of illiberal democracy (democracy without rights) and undemocratic liberalism (rights without democracy). Populist leaders are flourishing; indeed, Hungary is on the verge of descending into dictatorship, with shamefully little criticism from the Europe or the U.S. What are the causes of this phenomenon? What can we do about it?
