Coexistence in the World of Nations



“How can I protect something so perfect without evil?” Lady Gaga asks herself in her song Born This Way. I was raising two questions similar to this one recently while thinking about the link between group solidarity and nationalism.

The klesha of nationalism

In broad terms we all share a common identity.  We all wish to be secure, healthy, loved and self-determined; Maslow’s basic needs.  When we identify with something outside ourselves, such as nationalism, and imbue upon it such responsibility for our character and our actions, it is in yoga philosophy known as a klesha.  Klesha, a Sanskrit word from one of the earth’s oldest languages, refers to a mental state that clouds the mind manifesting in unwholesome actions and…

The Crack-Up: The 1919 Elaine Massacre & the Struggle to Remember, with Nan Woodruff

The massacre in rural Elaine, Arkansas was one of the most violent episodes of 1919's Red Summer of racist confrontations, but it also remains one of the least-known. In this talk with historian Ted Widmer, Penn State's Professor Nan Woodruff explains the causes and how it fits in to the post-World War I context. Why are people still reluctant to speak about this massacre? How should we remember this dark chapter in American history?

The Individual & the Collective, Politics, & the UN, with Jean-Marie Guéhenno

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Jean-Marie Guéhenno, former head of United Nations peacekeeping operations, discusses the tensions between the individual and the collective in a world filled with political tension, pervasive surveillance, and fear of risk. What is the role of the UN in this environment? How can we avoid the violent upheavals that marked other transitional phases in humanity?

A Russian Take on the Kurds and U.S. Foreign Policy

A Russian defense news site declared the United States an "unreliable ally" after the the withdrawal of American troops from Northern Syria. Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev connects this characterization to the need for leaders to connect a specific policy action to a larger, understandable narrative for the American public.
