#Cyberpeacefare #National Policy #Jimmy Carter

"Our policy is based on a historical vision of America's role.  Our policy is derived from a larger view of global change.  Our policy is rooted on our moral values, which never change. Our policy is reinforced by our material wealth and by our military power.  Our policy is designed to serve mankind. And it is a policy that I hope will make you proud to be an American."   Jimmy Carter, Notre Dame Commencement  Address, 1977.

"Little drops of water, little grains of sand, 

Make the mighty ocean, and the pleasant land.

So the little minutes, humble though they be,

Make the mighty ages of eternity."

Climate Change, Intergenerational Ethics, & Political Responsibility, with Stephen Gardiner

University of Washington's Professor Stephen Gardiner discusses the ethics of climate change from intergenerational, political, and personal perspectives. Should individuals feel bad for using plastic straws or eating meat? What should the UN and its member states do? And how can older generations make up for "a massive failure in leadership" that has led, in part, to the current crisis?
