#cyberpeacefare #Lewis Mumford Quotes

"Nothing is unthinkable, nothing is impossible to the balanced person, provided it comes out of the needs of life and is dedicated to life's further developments." 

"A good technology, firmly related to human needs cannot be one that has maximum productivity as its supreme goal; it must rather, as in an organic system, seek to provide the right quantity of the right quality at the right time and right place for the right purpose."

(Lewis Mumford was a writer for the New Yorker Magazine.  Applies to Internet/Cyberspace/Cyberpeaefare Technology. AL).

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
