#Cyberpeacefare #Book Leadership for a Fractured World #Dean Williams

EXCERPT - Questions for Practice:

"1. What is the nature of the interdependent problems that your group faces ? 

2. What are the boundaries and fractures that separate groups that make shared problem solving difficult ?

3. Do you see the manifestation of the tribal impulse ? How does it get acted out ? How might you contain it ? 

4. What are the notions of progress for yourself, your group, and other groups connected to the problems and challenges you face ? Are there competing notions of progress ?

5. How might the cultural drift - the taken-for-granted values, practices, and assumptions - serve to put people on auto-pilot, generate blind spots and biases, and reduce interdependent problem-solving capacity ?

6. How might you be a global change agent and provide leadership to promote adaptive change and help groups address interdependent challenges ? "

"Dean Williams is on the faculty of Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, where he chairs the Global Change Agents Program and leads the World Leaders Interview Project.......".

(Seems to me the above questions also apply to #Cyberpeacefare.- getting CyberPeaceCitizens  "across boundaries and fractures that separate groups that make shared problem solving difficult." e.g. "common good - common home - common humanity - world peace shared problems.)

I think that will be  a good thing to do- Social contract... Social conscience... For all and sundry.

Need a "Meeting of the Minds" (as in contract law) for us/all to realize/utilize our Individual Personal CyberPower for WorldPeace.. i.e., CyberWorldPeaceContract.  As you may know, the elements of  a contract are: offer, acceptance, consideration, legal purpose. The Offer-Acceptance-Consideration-LegalPurpose are all " WorldPeace-Planet Survival" versus Terrorism-WeaponsMassDestruction. What think you of idea of a formulating CyberpeacefareWorldPeaceContract for Broadcast over the WorldWideWeb/Social media.  Maybe Carnegie would support brainstorming the idea ?

Good  questions for practice indeed.A seminal input to answering this questions I want to believe starts by believing that a global peace is very possible.Man is  conscientious by nature with an active mind.Appealing to his  conscientious and active mind and his willingness and readiness to partake in the global mission for global peace sets the a gender for a possible multiplier effect. I think this has been exemplified by global ethics network, what follows is to motivate and provide the desirable impetus for a practical launch across boundaries and fractures that separate groups that make shared problem solving difficult-.....Activating the minds of men across  groups, across regions and it  may not necessary starts with huge number, but 1..2...3..........9......... 81.......6561. A journey of a million mile starts with just one step forward. Any body with a better idea? Cyberberpeacefare ! Shared problem solving

Penn State Altoona's Professor Brian C.

The Ethical Algorithm, with Michael Kearns

Over the course of a generation, algorithms have gone from mathematical abstractions to powerful mediators of daily life. They have made our lives more efficient, yet are increasingly encroaching on our basic rights. UPenn's Professor Michael Kearns shares some ideas on how to better embed human principles into machine code without halting the advance of data-driven scientific exploration.
