I was on a trekking in Baccha, Vietnam, with a friend. We were walking and after 5 km we came a cross with a Flower H'mong family (hill tribe minortiy). They start to say hello! Hello come in!>>. So, we came in, they were celebrating the death of the viceleader of the village. This celebrbation is H'mong tradition and to celebrate the death they kill a buffalo, drink corn wine and play music. They invite us to join them.  We had a great time with them talking about everything,…

An Incumbent Politician's Confusion Over Government System in the Philippines

Unsolicited decision of Drilon to respect the Ombudsman's decision over Napoles appearance in the senate is I think a not surprising choice of a greedy imbecile. This was the reason why I was so noisy during the impeachment of Renato Corona and Merceditas Gutierrez because although there might be some fault under their term (as if everyone in the politics don't play dirt), at least they cannot just be controlled or manipulated by the…

Could our new global ethic come from...Afghanistan?

Originally posted on dispositiondisposal.wordpress.com

A fierce young hunter throttles a lion using a single wooden rod.  Ashoka, the ancient revered ruler of the Maurya Dynasty, possessed a formidable temper from an early age.  Legend has it that Ashoka, in a ruthless ploy for power, got rid of the legitimate heir to the throne by tricking him into entering a pit filled with live coals.  Other legends hold that…

Moral Leadership in My View.

Morality and leadership are two assets of a good leader. Evaluation of a leader is done on the basis of his/her moral stands and his/her capacity to handle adverse conditions.  For making these words clear we need to find; how does morality develop leadership in ourselves?

In societies of Nepal, a man is characterized as moral or immoral according to his behavior in societies. If he respects old people and loves younger, then he is known as moral fellow. Here old and young people…

Thucydides on Civil War and Syria

Last year, in the very first class of contemporary International Relations theory in Tsinghua university - one of China’s most elite universities – the Ivy league educated instructor spent the lecture examining Thucydides not only as the father of the Realist school of international relations but as one of the most important theorists on war and peace and on human’s political behavior.

Thucydides has indeed inspired some of the world’s brightest intellectuals who have spent years and…

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.
