#Cyberpeacefare #Eternal Peace #Dwight Eisenhower

"Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation can finally lead men to dawn of eternal peace"
At all times, just acts, fair play, considerations that are morally overtoned and unlimited cooperation among and between men/nations/regions will lead us to expected end as one humanity with a common destiny.

The parallels of euthanasia to the autonomy of the individual and their implications for Global Justice

The arguments made here are an extension of a broader paper that aimed (unsuccessfully) to discuss the issue of euthanasia from the perspective of three different ethic theories (Peter Singer, Immanuel Kant, Consequentialist) and relate it to global ethics and the question of global justice. The hope is that this paper is able to provide those linkages and provoke some discussion around the direction of global justice.    

 

The question of ethics in regards to…

Gene Editing Governance & Dr. He Jiankui, with Jeffrey Kahn

Jeffrey Kahn, director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute for Bioethics, discusses the many governance issues connected to gene editing. Plus, he gives a first-hand account of an historic conference in Hong Kong last year in which Dr. He Jiankui shared his research on the birth of the world's first germline genetically engineered babies. What's the future of the governance of this emerging technology?

Trump is the Symptom, Not the Problem

Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.

Gene Editing: Overview, Ethics, & the Near Future, with Robert Klitzman

In the first in a series of podcasts on gene editing, Columbia's Dr. Robert Klitzman provides an overview of the technology, ethical and governance issues, and where it could all go in the near future. Plus he explains why the birth of genetically engineered twins in China last year was a "seismic" event. How could gene editing lead to more inequality? What could be some of unintended consequences?
