To Do or not to Do

From time immemorial, scientists conducted experiments on animals. For example, in 1880, Louis Pasteur proved the microbial nature of certain diseases by artificially causing anthrax in a sheep. Ivan Pavlov used dogs to study conditioned reflexes in 1890. We know that toxicity tests were mandatory in the twentieth century. And these tests were also carried out on animals. But despite the experiments, there were people who tried to fight for animal rights. And by the beginning of the 21st…

Democracy For a Prosperous Nation

Four a.m. Seated in front of the computer. I am just from bed, where I had been tossing and turning for hours, looking for sleep that was seriously evading me like the plague. This is not the first time. I should honestly sit it down and have a mature conversation. We can’t go into the new year with this dispute still ongoing. Anyway, maybe I should thank sleep for playing so hard to get because now, here I am, writing. Here I am sharing what’s on my mind with you, hoping that you…

If somebody would ask me about my government preference way back, I would have questioned why our country has a Democratic type of government. Why not a monarchial one? With princesses, big gowns, and horses. I was very…

Is it important to live in democracy

All human history is permeated with the search for a political ideal. This search is based on social differentiation. It is the social stratification that motivates the search for a political ideal, and each stratum represents a political ideal in its own way.  At the heart of this view, as social Sciences prove, are the personal interests of each social group, not the whole society. And the higher the social group takes a position in the social hierarchy, the more influential it…

Democracy is not the answer, human dignity is.

Though once called a perversion of constitutional government by Aristotle, democracy is now lauded by the United Nations as a universal core value. But the rise of Communist China onto the world stage as a fierce economic competitor and potential superpower, as well as the rise of the alt-right in stable democracies has scholars questioning if democracy is indeed the final form of government, or if it is merely an imperfect Western…

Red Flags: Why Xi's China is in Jeopardy, with George Magnus

China's economy has grown exponentially over the last four decades, but George Magnus, former chief economist at UBS, sees four traps that could derail its continued rise: rising debt, the struggle to keep its currency stable, aging demographics, and the challenges of changing from a low-income economy to a complex middle-income one. Will Xi Jinping be open to reform? What could be the effects of lingering U.S.-China trade tensions?

Transactionalism in U.S. foreign policy has a new proponent: James E. Risch, incoming chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
