#Cyberpeacefare #Great Decisions #C.G. Jung

"The great decisions of human life have as a rule far more to do with instincts and other mysterious unconscious factors than with conscious will and well meaning reasonableness. The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases. Each of us carries his own life-form - an indeterminable form which cannot be superseded by any other."

unconscious: 1. lacking awareness and capacity…

Pakistan's Cycle of Violence

In Plato’s Apology, Socrates famously remarked, that, “the unexamined life is not worth living”. The aphorism sheds light on one of the founding principles of philosophy and intellectual enquiry. It was a fundamental part of philosophical life till George Eliot took up the task and decided to challenge Socrates by asserting that, “life examined too closely might not be lived at all.” The question of examining one’s life is usually brushed off as an abstract and theoretical proposition that…

Splitting the Banana Market

               Bananas have been integrated in our diet as a staple food. Who doesn’t love to, at least, eat a banana in the morning or put a few banana slices into a good smoothie? Nonetheless, Bananas play a big part in the U.S diet. Let me pose this question to you, Reader: Do you know what it takes for Bananas to get to your supermarket, or the history behind the marketization of this fruit? The Banana market has a horrifying past that connects the sweet fruit to violence against…

Ethics & the U.S.-China Trade War, with Nikolas Gvosdev

What role should ethics play in the U.S.-China trade war? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev looks at these economic tensions in the context of the Uyghur detention and the Hong Kong protests, different theories on integrating China into the world economy, and what it could mean to "lose" in this conflict. Is there a breaking point in terms of China's human rights policies? What's the view in Africa and Europe?

Ethical Considerations in a Trade War with China

Are there ethical considerations that need to be factored in as part of assessing the merits of a "trade war" with the People's Republic of China?

Beyond Trump

Some countries are now coming to the same conclusions reached by the U.S. Global Engagement program: the 2016 election was not a "blip," but represents a break with the past. "In other words, no foreign government should bank on getting a better shake post-Trump."
