Moral Dilemma and 'Us'

Posted on January 7, 2014 at 10:33am 0 Comments

Although, it's true some thinkers in diverse eras and areas have preferred divergent approaches to the 'moral dilemma' of our world I.e. The deontological, consequentalist and virtue-ethics approaches as supposed panaceas to that effect. Yet, has anyone been dispassionate and impassioned enough to behold/construe these "remedies" as dilemma in themselves??

To be, or not to be, that is the question!

It’s a fine state of affairs in Syria, and the clock is striking thirteen. Authoritarianism stands intransigent to the whims and agitations of the people. And the frightening turnout of events in that country is by no means “funny ha ha”.

'To be or not to be, that is the question'.

Riot acts are read out aloud through nuzzles of dictatorial guns, yet the “peopled dissidence” wouldn't yield to any such unpeopled impetus, neither would they be dragooned to…


An Essay On Moral Leaderhip

Posted on December 25, 2013 at 12:30am 4 Comments

It is an axiomatic truth that morality is to leadership what the soul is to the body or what conscience is to man.

Although no one theory nor approach can subsume the complexities of leadership or give an all-encompassing theory to that effect, yet the word "Leader" in the ordinary course of events, is someone who shows the way as well as guide and influence the actions of others by way of example. While the word "Morality" on the other hand, inherently imply the system or code that… Continue

Nigeria Today.

O boy!

I feel mentally perplexed given the surge of political tension emanating from the prospective 2015 Nigeria's presidential election. One definitely wouldn't need a new pair of eyes to behold the handwriting on the wall that 2015 is to all intent and purpose doom-laden.

It's inevitably another "tug of extermination" between our Nigerian political rapscallions who have and are are yet constituting themselves into two titanic politica juggernauts, hell-bent on employing all… Continue

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?
