#Cyberpeacefare #Evil #George Eliot

Evil: 1. Morally bad or wrong; wicked: an evil tyrant. 2. causing ruin, injury, or pain; harmful:the evil effects of a poor diet. 3.…

Black Hawk Down and International Relations

            Somalia in 1993 was extremely unstable, with the warlord Aidid stealing the humanitarian aid supplies sent to Somalia, and using starvation and poverty as his weapon. To put an end to Aidid’s uncontrolled power, and to aid the starving population, the United States sends Special Forces into Somalia as part of the UN Peacekeeping Operations, a purely “humanitarian” mission. It seemed to be a simple mission at first: arresting Aidid’s two top advisors. However, the operation wasn’t…

TALKING ETHICS

 A layman like me would define ethics as the morals, values and principles to do what is right. Most professionals like doctors, teachers, pilots etc have their own work ethic principles that guide them while pursing their duties and these are normally internationally recognized but what about what we do during our free time, does what we do or say in our free time influence our personal behavior?

There was this beautiful young lady who was lucky to host a…

Trump: Magic Words and the Power of Crowds

Tump: Magic Words and the Power of Crowds

by



Roy Morrison



The Trump spectacle, the rise of a transparently narcissistic buffoon who boasts of grabbing women by the genitals is certainly unique in U.S. presidential politics.

But some aspects are familiar. The look on the faces of Trump's followers is the same enthralled gaze I watched in 1976 when George Wallace gave a kick off speech in Boston for his presidential campaign. It's also the same…

Enemy of the People: Trump's War on the Press, with Marvin Kalb

Trump has a love-hate relationship with the press, which he calls "the enemy of the people" when it crosses him, knowing nothing of the origins of the phrase, says Marvin Kalb. Yet the pillars of democracy are the sanctity of the court and the freedom of the press. "I think that President Trump—not wittingly, unwittingly—is moving this nation away from our common understanding of democracy toward something that edges toward authoritarianism."

A Savage Order, with Rachel Kleinfeld

Can violent societies get better? Rachel Kleinfeld discusses her latest book, "A Savage Order: How the World's Deadliest Countries Can Forge a Path to Security." Her conclusion is ultimately optimistic: Though it's never easy, real democracy (not autocracy in disguise) and a vibrant middle class can provide a path out of violence.

Education for Peace: The Living Legacy of the First World War

The panel was part of the Carnegie Peacebuilding Conversations, a three-day program at the Peace Palace in The Hague, Netherlands, presented in cooperation with Carnegie institutions worldwide and other partners.
