Time to Challenge the War System

#508 | Prof. Jake Lynch – TRANSCEND Media Service

Are these observations leading to a putative grand conspiracy involving individuals in different domains--industry, military, politics and media--scheming in secret to propel us into war in order to make money? This is where we reach for the concepts furnished by social science to locate political agency not in the words and deeds of identifiable actors but instead as a generative force that is stored in, and activated from, systems and structures.

FEATURED RESEARCH PAPER

Gandhian Strategy

Sunanda Sharma | Bombay Sarvodaya Mandal & Gandhi Research Foundation – TRANSCEND Media Service

The Gandhian strategy is the combination of truth, sacrifice, nonviolence, selfless service and cooperation. According to Gandhi one should be brave and not a coward and should present his views, suggestions and thoughts without being violent. One should fight a war with the weapons of truth and nonviolence. Gandhi said that “There is no god higher than truth.” According to his thoughts, nonviolence is ultimate solution of every kind of problem in the world.

Eyewitness: The Rohingya Horrors and [Nobel Peace Laureate] Aung San Suu Kyi’s Whitewash

Ellen Wiles – The Conversation

And then there’s the sight of Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights icon Aung San Suu Kyi, the head of government in all but name, publicly whitewashing the situation. She has failed, not just to condemn, but even to recognise the atrocities, and has declined to acknowledge the existence of the Rohingya Muslim minority--and their ongoing genocide.

Waves of Genocidal Terror against Rohingyas by Myanmar and the Resultant Exodus Since 1978

Maung Zarni and Natalie Brinham | Middle East Institute – TRANSCEND Media Service

14 Nov 2017 - This essay aims to highlight the scope and rhythmic nature of Burma’s persecution of Rohingyas and the devastating impact on the Rohingya population. First, it sets out to describe and help readers understand the evolving pretexts given by the successive Burmese governments and the methods of group destruction and resultant waves — five in total — of the outflow of Rohingyas in large number. Then it attempts to offer an interpretive framework within which this cycle of violence-exodus-lull is best understood.

Why Are Police in the USA So Terrified?

Robert J. Burrowes, Ph.D. – TRANSCEND Media Service

15 Nov 2017 - For those who follow news in the United States, the routine killing of innocent civilians by the police has become a national crisis despite concerted attempts by political and legal authorities and the corporate media to obscure what is happening. So far this year, US police have killed 1,044 people. In contrast, from 1990 to 2016, police in England and Wales killed just 62 people. So why are the police so violent? you might ask.

Beirut and Washington DC sources have suggested to this observer that Hariri’s thinking and motivation for a quick departure from Lebanon was influenced by reports delivered to him personally from three Western security agencies that have for the past six months been monitoring the movements of certain security agents from Hezbollah.

The simplest explanation of the situation of the world is that Hitler won the war and is directing the events from his control room. If we accept this idea, it will be intelligible that the development is consistent with his ideology and more and more seems to be characterized by his evil genius. But if we assume that Nazism was crushed 1945, how then should we explain the correspondence?

However, their over-use and misuse, such as for “promoting growth” is leading to the emergence of microbes resistant to these drugs, making the diseases they cause impossible to treat. Humans exposed to these antimicrobial resistant pathogens are also affected in the same way.

He is also reported to have had hypertrophied genitals. Physically unable to participate in most of the activities typically enjoyed by men of his age, Toulouse-Lautrec immersed himself in his art. An alcoholic for most of his adult life, he was placed in a sanatorium shortly before his death.
