I would love to see racial inequality diminish in the next century. If racial inequality disappeared forever the world would be such a better place to live in. There would be a chance for people to finally be treated equally; there won’t be any resentment towards the government from specified ethnic groups   . Today’s society especially in America has had a lot of tension at times violent due to racial inequality which is another reason why I would love to see racial inequality…

I was at the RTO applying for my learners licence when I overheard a conversation between a little girl and her father. “Daddy. Why did you give that man money?

Anti-Materialist Thoughts of a Superfluous Man

D.M.L. Nguyen

Yale University

Undergraduate, class of 2016

I shall begin my discourse on what can potentially improve the state of the world at the very beginning, our ancestors. The natural man, at the onset of his existence, is an animal. By no means an ordinary animal, but an animal nevertheless. The natural man lived by instinct, his needs and behaviors indistinguishable from the animals which he hunts and cohabits with. In stages, man began…

Imagining a better future - What would you like to see happen during this century to make the world a better place?

High school student

I was recently confronted by the terrifying but not completely unexpected realization that roughly half of my parents’ combined income is consumed by my secondary education. In a household of four children, that’s a significant investment. My parents pronounced the fact with genuine reluctance and fake surprise, as if trying to spare me the urgency of…

What I would like to see happen in this century to make the world a better place:the elimination of ethnic hatred #betterfuturecontest

Nicholas Sitaras

High School Student

A while back, reflecting on my Greek heritage, I thought about the sociopolitical zeitgeist of modern Greeks. In a country with roughly 40 political parties (ranging from the more democratic to communists, anarchists, and fascists) there is obviously not much is consensus.

But most Greeks agree on one thing: they hate the Turks.

Years ago, the Ottoman Empire (the precursor state of modern…

Imagining A Better Future

How can we make the world a better place in the next 100 years? The question is daunting to say the least. Medics may say to increase worldwide hospital care. Educators may say to encourage more rigorous schooling. Activists may say to promote equality among all people. Minorities may say to eliminate stereotypes from the population. Some may say to disallow the use of weapons,…

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

Four Fellows from Carnegie Council's "The Living Legacy of WWI" project present their research on different aspects of the war--counterterrorism, airpower, chemical warfare, and Latin America--and its long-term impacts. 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.
