#Cyberpeacefare #GEN Blog Improvement/Carnegie Innovation

The blog has become incoherent over the years of separate and independent postings.

#Cyberpeacefare #Freedom #Archibald MacLeish

"What is freedom ?

Freedom is the right to choose; the right to create for oneself the alternatives of choice.  

Without the possibility of choice and the exercise of choice a man is not a man but a member, an instrument, a thing."

Freedom is the right to one's dignity as a man."

Archibald MacLeish/"A…

#Cyberpeacefare #Personal Responsibility #Carnegie Inspiration

Given many of us are interconnected in the cyber domain and have a common cause for "world peace and planet survival" , why are we neglecting our responsibility/opportunity to try create a cyber world peace tsunami ? As Abe Lincoln advised: "You can't escape responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today." Seems to me individuals reading this message don't believe individual raindrops collectively can cause a flood. Yes You Can ! C'mon get those fingertips going ?…

But it is wisdom to believe the heart."

#Cyberpeacefare #American Democracy #Arthur M.Schlesinger

"The American democracy must discover a middle ground between making a President a Czar and making him a puppet. The problem is to devise means of reconciling a strong and purposeful Presidency with equally strong and purposeful forms of democratic control. Or to put it succinctly, we need a strong Presidency - but a strong Presidency within the Constitution."  Arthur M Schlesinger

The promises/opportunities&dangers/pitfalls of the New Year are before us.  We are culpable for what we do/fail to do for: ourselves, humanity, common good, common home, planet sustainability. The nuclear cloud threatens us all ! We must not be indifferent.  As Abe Lincoln advised us: "You can't escape responsibility of tomorrow by avoiding it today." Let us all pledge to realize/utilize our Personal Cyber Power for World Peace and Planet Survival in 2017.    CyberPeaceGadfly

#Cyberpeacefare #Peace #Adlai E. Stevenson

"Peace is not the work of a single day, nor will it be the consequence of a single act. Yet every constructive act contributes to its growth; every omission impedes it. Peace will come, in the end, if it comes at all, as a child grows to maturity - slowly, imperceptibly, until we realize one day in incredulous surprise that the child is almost grown." Adlai E. Stevenson

(The hope for world peace, in a cyber connected social…
