Thank You Carnegie for supporting my GEN #Cyberpeacefare Blog.

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

Might Carnegie consider taking over overall management of the blog and master editing the plethora of postings.  I would continue to actively support the #Cyberpeacefare Experiment.

#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 ?…

#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

Privacy, Surveillance, & the Terrorist Trap, with Tom Parker

How can investigators utilize new technology like facial recognition software while respecting the rights of suspects and the general public? What are the consequences of government overreaction to terrorist threats? Tom Parker, author of "Avoiding the Terrorist Trap," discusses privacy, surveillance, and more in the context of counterterrorism.

A Parting of Values: America First versus Transactionalism

"The existing divide in American foreign policy discourse has been the extent to which the U.S. must actively propagate and spread its values, or defend them or promote them even when there is no interest at stake," writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. How does American civil society demand consideration of moral and ethical concerns in the decisions both to go to war and how the war will be prosecuted?

Suleimani Is Dead, but Diplomacy Shouldn’t Be

Carnegie Council fellow and Pacific Delegate Philip Caruso advocates for the value of diplomacy in the aftermath of the U.S. killing Iran's general Qassem Suleimani. "Iran cannot win a war against the United States, nor can the United States afford to fight one," he argues. This article was originally published in "Foreign Policy" and is posted here with kind permission.
