That means that to overcome the indifference and unawareness in men regarding the survival of species and the planet in the 21st Century, there is need to liberate the minds of men and the society at large.Thus this requires a collective and systemic approach.A moral responsibility of all and sundry.

Seems to me the mind is unfathomable brain system of billions of neurons pulsing-processing electrical signals both conscious and unconscious (thoughts, feelings,motor messages, etc)."The functions of the mind include:perceiving, thinking, imagining, remembering, planning, reasoning, speaking, understanding words, emotional experience, unconscious processing". ("The Mind", John Taylor). The implications of "free will" in terms of moral responsibility - conscience for society and planet survival is mysterious to me Seems to me too much indifference or unawareness - of "survival of the species and the planet in the 21st Century" ?

I quite agree with Daniel Webster. No wonder Allan Claxon maintained that the treacherous unexplored areas of the world are not in the continent neither are they in the seas but are in the hearts and minds of men.

The Crack-Up: The 1919 Elaine Massacre & the Struggle to Remember, with Nan Woodruff

The massacre in rural Elaine, Arkansas was one of the most violent episodes of 1919's Red Summer of racist confrontations, but it also remains one of the least-known. In this talk with historian Ted Widmer, Penn State's Professor Nan Woodruff explains the causes and how it fits in to the post-World War I context. Why are people still reluctant to speak about this massacre? How should we remember this dark chapter in American history?

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.
