#cyberpeacefare #American Politics #"The Soul of Politics"Jim Wallis

Excerpts:

"Mohandas K Gandhi warned against what he called the seven social sins: 1. politics without principle, 2. wealth without work, 3. commerce without morality, 4. pleasure without conscience, 5. education without character,6. science without humanity and 7. worship without sacrifice.

"We can find common ground only by moving to a higher ground. Constituency-based politics, with its factional interests, will not lead us to higher ground.  Politics has been reduced to the selfish struggle for power among competing interests and groups, instead of a process of searching for the common good."

"The moral issues at the heart of the public debate are often unrecognized and ignored or, worse yet, manipulated and twisted for politically self serving and ideological purposes. We witness the spectacle again each election year."

"The relationship between politics and morality is absolutely vital to the future."

(We Voters Need  to recognize our "money corrupted politics" The more special/foreign money interest supported candidates are essentially  obligated to their benefactors and not "We The People". The more the media proganda/ads, the more the obligation.  IMO, Need Independent 3rd Party and Public vs. Private Interest Politicians).  AL

Wonder if the following equation generally applies to American Politics:

      Probability Election Success = Amount of Big Money Raised / Public Interest  ?

Gene Editing Governance & Dr. He Jiankui, with Jeffrey Kahn

Jeffrey Kahn, director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute for Bioethics, discusses the many governance issues connected to gene editing. Plus, he gives a first-hand account of an historic conference in Hong Kong last year in which Dr. He Jiankui shared his research on the birth of the world's first germline genetically engineered babies. What's the future of the governance of this emerging technology?

Trump is the Symptom, Not the Problem

Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.

Gene Editing: Overview, Ethics, & the Near Future, with Robert Klitzman

In the first in a series of podcasts on gene editing, Columbia's Dr. Robert Klitzman provides an overview of the technology, ethical and governance issues, and where it could all go in the near future. Plus he explains why the birth of genetically engineered twins in China last year was a "seismic" event. How could gene editing lead to more inequality?
