Israel-Gaza Conflict: Here We Are Again

To begin, I want to make my view clear that the attacks by both Israel and Hamas must be strongly condemned. Both sides have been displaying utter disregard for the right to life and a clear lack of interest in holding those responsible (including senior political and military leaders) accountable for grave human rights violations and violations of international law. This lack of accountability may have been a key factor in the resumption of hostilities and in the loss of hope for a peaceful…

#cyberpeacefare #selling ?

How does one sell/persuade someone to buy cyberpeacefare and become a cyberpeacecitizen ? 

Given the universal buying motives: Gain-Need-Desire-Embarrassed Not To Have.

Gain and Need are considered the rational buying motives; while Desire and Embarrassed Not To Have are considered the emotional buying motives.

Seems to me" 1. We all Gain from Objective of "World Peace." 2. We all Need "World Peace". 3. Most Humans Desire World Peace 4.…

#Cyberpeacefare #Riddle #Rodney King

If a butterfly fluttering its wings can cause a tsunami.

If no one hears the sound of a tree crashing in a forest.

If Humans Uniquely capable of looking ahead and cooperating and even going to moon.

Why can't we all get along  ?"  Rodney King

Xi’s Transformational Diplomacy and Strategic Competence

 Recently, one of America’s most influential scholars, Joseph Nye, authored a book on the significance of U.S. presidential leadership in shaping American politics and the global order. Examining presidencies such as those of Roosevelt, Kennedy, Nixon, Reagan and Clinton, Nye concluded that presidential leadership could be seen as either transformational or transactional. A transactional leader is a caretaker, a good manager who does not take ambitious initiatives. A transformational leader…

#Cyberpeacefare #Common Responsibility #Dwight Eisenhower

"Men of widely divergent views in our country live in peace together because they share certain common aspirations which are more important than their differences. The common responsibility of all Americans is to become effective helpful participants in a way of life that blends and harmonizes the fiercely competitive demands of the Individual and Society."  Dwight Eisenhower

Doctors Without Borders

I've always been a huge fan of Doctors Without Borders. Ever since I've heard of it, I've wanted to join their ranks. I'm just curious, are there any other programs  out there like Doctors Without Borders? I know the Red Cross does some things, but I want to get an idea of all these programs. I'm still a high school student (2015!) but I really want to be a surgeon and also help the world community at the same time, so I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing right now, unfortunately. Does…

#cyberpeacefare #Need Ideas/Theories/Feedback

Question:  What would it take to motivate people to realize and utilize their "personal cyberpower"to spontaneously/massively contribute to "world peace and planet survival" ?  In my opinion it has to be a "bottom up universal uprising"  like butterfly fluttering its wings can cause tsunami. I'm reminded of Darwin's adaptive radiation theory based on his observation of finches. The "survival of the fittest". Maybe we need to re-visit Darwin in the AGE of "Nuclear/Environment/Terrorism "the…
