"If we are to have a world that is worth passing on to the coming generations, we must seek harmony between technology and natural environment.

#Cyberpeacefare #Cloud Cyber Peace System #Feasibility Study

Given that there is a myriad of world peace and interfaith religious organizations all inter-connected in cyberspace/social media with common mission requirements (government, non-government, international and academic).

Today, Northern Nigeria is torn apart by violence, from the organized campaign of mayhem and destruction being perpetrated by Boko Haram, to the spontaneous riots that occur on what seems; unfortunately, to be a regular basis. I experienced one such riot some years ago: where my family and I had to huddle in hiding overnight while as…

#Cyberpeacefare #Great Task of Peace #Sir Frederick Eggleston

"The great task of the peace is to work morals into it.  The only sort of peace that will be real is one in which everybody takes his share of responsibility.  World organizations and conferences will be of no value unless there is improvement in relation of men to men."  

(Time for "everybody takes his/her  share of responsibility"   Wonder how ?  Anybody got any ideas ?)

Cyber peacefare

A phenomenon

A magnificent reality of our time and generation

Cyber peacefare, the wisdom of this era, that hooks on to the knowledge of science and technology

Cyber peacefare, the rallying point for similar minded humanity, in pursuit of one phenomenon  called Peace in holism

Cyber peacefare, the phenomenon that suffered from the jaundice views of pessimism

As suffered since the time of  great inventors like Michael Faraday, the…

Eyes in the Sky: The Secret Rise of Gorgon Stare and How It Will Watch Us All, with Arthur Holland Michel

Arthur Holland Michel, founder of the Center for the Study of the Drone, traces the development of the Pentagon's Gorgon Stare, one of the most powerful surveillance technologies ever created. When fused with big-data analysis techniques, this network can be used to watch everything simultaneously, and perhaps even predict attacks before they happen. Can we capitalize on its great promise while avoiding its potential perils?

Ill Winds: Saving Democracy from Russian Rage, Chinese Ambition, and American Complacency, with Larry Diamond

Larry Diamond's core argument is stark: the defense and advancement of democratic ideals relies on U.S. global leadership. If the U.S. does not reclaim its traditional place as the keystone of democracy, today's authoritarian trend could become a tsunami that could provide an opening for Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and their admirers to turn the 21st century into a dark time of surging authoritarianism.

Global Ethics Weekly: Foreign Policy & the 2020 Democratic Candidates, with Nikolas Gvosdev

Will Joe Biden's "restorationist" foreign policy resonate with voters? What would a "progressive" approach to international relations look like for Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders? What role will foreign policy play in the 2020 Election? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev looks at these questions and more as he and host Alex Woodson discuss a crowded 2020 Democratic primary field.
