How Deep is Your Love? Raise your voice against Animal Abuse!

"The Darkest corners of hell are reserved for those, who in times of a crisis maintain neutrality."

It is a little challenging not to wake up and voice your thoughts when mornings begin with "news" like this. A little over a year ago an incident that occured in the Delhi zoo where Vijay the Tiger "maulled" a man to death compels you to question- What is the extent to which one can be held responsible for his or…

A better future for humanity (for decades to come)

Our imagination can be our source of inspiration, but it also can be our downfall. So, the task of imagining a better future will be a no easy task, since we are susceptible to our sometimes selfish, melancholic, or even altruistic reasoning without thinking the realistic capabilities of our imagination. Therefore, when I was imagining my perspective of better future, I would like to imagine without restriction, in terms of feasibility or even our present capabilities.   

The first…

#Cyberpeacefare #Civilized World - Daniel Webster

"............and the civilized world seems at last proceeding to the conviction of that fundamental and manifest truth, that the powers of government are but a trust and that they cannot be lawfully exercised but for the good of the community.  As knowledge is more and more extended, this conviction becomes more and more general."

The Individual & the Collective, Politics, & the UN, with Jean-Marie Guéhenno

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Jean-Marie Guéhenno, former head of United Nations peacekeeping operations, discusses the tensions between the individual and the collective in a world filled with political tension, pervasive surveillance, and fear of risk. What is the role of the UN in this environment? How can we avoid the violent upheavals that marked other transitional phases in humanity?

A Russian Take on the Kurds and U.S. Foreign Policy

A Russian defense news site declared the United States an "unreliable ally" after the the withdrawal of American troops from Northern Syria. Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev connects this characterization to the need for leaders to connect a specific policy action to a larger, understandable narrative for the American public.

The Struggle for Recognition in International Relations, with Michelle Murray

How can established powers manage the peaceful rise of new great powers? Bard's Michelle Murray offers a new answer to this perennial question, arguing that power transitions are principally social phenomena whereby rising powers struggle to obtain recognition as world powers. How can this framework help us to understand the economic and military rivalry between United States and China?
