#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 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 #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…

Freedom To Not Be Religious

Please allow me to remind everybody that people have the legal right to choose to not be religious and that discrimination because of this is unlawfull and unethical too.

Our human family are made up of many different groups of people. We all exist because of a Higher Divine Intelligence no matter how we reason about this. Our differences are not the key factors. One group isn't more important than the next. Neither the majorities or the minorities.

Rescue: Refugees and the Political Crisis of Our Time, with David Miliband

Today there are 65 million people who have fled their homes because of conflict or persecution, says the International Rescue Committee's David Miliband. These are refugees not economic migrants, and half of them are children. It's a long-term crisis that will last our lifetimes. Why should we care? And what can we do about it, both at a policy level and as individuals?

Clip of the Month: Winning the Argument on Immigration with David Miliband

As president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), David Miliband oversees both the agency's humanitarian relief operations and its refugee resettlement and assistance programs in several American cities. Although he was not responsible for the EU’s decisions on refugees or immigrants, during his tenure as the United Kingdom’s foreign secretary from 2007 to 2010, he saw how his government responded to an unexpectedly large influx of European workers and the resulting impact on British society. In this clip, Miliband draws on both of these roles and explains why he is confident that Europeans and Americans can be convinced that immigration, in all of its forms, can be positive, economically and culturally. In any case, he says, it’s an argument that "has to be won."

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.
