Valentine:  Might U inform me of your plans for your new book "The Art of Cyberpeacefare" ?

dear val. the wars of today are wars of nerves, depending on propaganda as the main vector, and all types of geostrategical advantages. the war on terrorism for example needs an ideological battle, and to a lesser extent the use of physical force. surely, a good strategist would want to win the hearts if his supporters before engaging a physical battle. hence the reason why sun tzu's quote remains vital in conflict resolution .

Sun-tzu Quote "To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill - To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill."

The Cyberpeacefare model is based on winning the war of ideas and motivating  "us/all" Individuals using our PersonalCyberPower for the common good of Humanity and the Planet.  The medium is cyberspace and the weapon system is social media/computers/smartphones   I'm reminded of a quote by Victor Hugo: "A stand can be made against an invasion by an army; no stand can be made against invasion by an idea." Need new book "The Art of Cyberpeacefare" ?  Al

Achiri, The thrust of Sun-tzu theory of War is on strategic or tactical approach to War i.e. a war of nerves be it in its classical or conventional usage in strategic studies. from the classical usage for example, the General that has failed to plan adequately for War  has equally planned fail.More so he his bound to suffer severe casualties even if he has all that it takes to win a War.This indeed justifies the notion that "the supreme art of War is to subdue the enemy without fighting physically".From the conventional usage, adequate and quality strategic plans are required to contend the numerous challenges facing humanity today such as    violence. Be it direct or structural violence i.e. War, poverty, environmental violence, violence against children and women,  violence against the aged ect, examples  abound the world over. However, within the context of this model, a moral message passing through the  cell nerves of the whole system to the various parts as indicated by the arrows can cause a tidal wave  or tsunamis, a contention without  fighting physically.

well elaborated system with CPU... you just inspired me to draw an orgaingram for the system, though i still cant figure out you left out SUN TZU' s ART OF WAR:

“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”

Valentine:  Most Interesting Cyberpeacefare System Model - Centralized Hub Global System Architecture -.8 World Regional Sub-Processing Stations (spokes) - CyberPeaceCitizens Individual Computer Users/Terminals (laptops-tablets-smartphones, et al) interconnected through Regional Servers. Assume you are using Main Social Media Asssets (e.g., Twitter. Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, et al and Main World Peace Organizations/Advocates Feeds into Regional Servers and/or Directly Main Hub Server.  The whole system is probably "synchronized" so that a single user's original message/blog is processed for re- broadcasting world-wide enabling a CyberWorldPeaceTsunami ?  Thanks for creating and sharing !  Hopefully, your "strawman" CyberPeaceFare System Model will inspire others to "brainstorm" ,and contribute, as well.  Need Feedback Loops ?  Al

The Power of Tribalism, with Amy Chua & Walter Russell Mead

"In our foreign policy, for at least half a century, we have been spectacularly blind to the power of tribal politics," says Amy Chua, author of "Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations." What does this mean in 2019? How can Americans move past tribalism? Don't miss this conversation with Chua and Bard College's Walter Russell Mead, moderated by Bard's Roger Berkowitz.

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?

C2G Update: Nature-based Solutions, the UN, & the IPCC Reports, with Janos Pasztor

Janos Pasztor, executive director of the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G), gives an update on his team's work after a busy week in New York. In the wake of troubling IPCC reports on climate change's effect on the oceans and land use, what more can the UN do? What are the challenges of nature-based solutions? And how should we handle climate change fatigue, individually and on a societal level?
