Peace Journalism Perspective

EDITORIAL

Prof. Johan Galtung

Meanwhile, Around the World

Nº 443 | Johan Galtung, 22 Aug 2016 - TRANSCEND Media Service

Auschwitz, 29 July: Pope Francis praying, asking God for the 'grace to cry' (INYT, 30-31 July) was very, very touching. And very, very different from the show Obama tried to put on in Hiroshima.

TMS PEACE JOURNALISM

Peace Journalism: What Johan Galtung Asked the Taliban

Liam McLoughlin – New Matilda

The Norwegian sociologist, who helped found the field of ‘peace journalism’, spoke about conflict, terror, and talking to the Taliban. The scholar is a vocal critic of mainstream media coverage of violence. In his critique of the failure to give context for events and explore the causes of conflict, Galtung differentiates ‘war journalism’ from ‘peace journalism’. We began the interview with a succinct explanation of the difference.

Individual and Human Rights

Howard Richards – TRANSCEND Media Service

Take a cue from the days when Jesus could say “render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s.” In those days money belonged to sovereigns and sovereigns used their financial privileges to defray their expenses, mainly the expenses of waging wars. Now banks and other financial institutions have privileges that the sovereign people should have and should use to make social rights real rights.

Olympic Jews?

Uri Avnery | Gush Shalom – TRANSCEND Media Service

20 Aug 2016 - The scene at Ben-Gurion airport this week was rather astonishing. More than a thousand young male fans came to welcome the two Israeli Judo fighters who had won a bronze medal each at the Olympic games in Rio. Yet judo is not a very popular sport in Israel. So Israeli crowds suddenly became judo fans (some called it "Jewdo"). People who did not go wild with enthusiasm were considered traitors.

Cultivating the Myth of Human Equality

Anthony Judge | Laetus in praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service

Ignoring Complicity in the Contradictions Thereby Engendered - At the time of writing, the argument can be made otherwise with the popular appeal of the promise of one US presidential nominee to "make America great again". How is the desperate need to "be number one" to be related to whatever is implied by human equality? The question of principle is strikingly defined by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that: all men are born free and equal in rights and dignity.

We were learning as we go how to deal with people (including the “mental occupation”).

To achieve peace and stability, Africa must recycle its current leadership by putting emphasis on the demilitarization of the minds and political institutions.

I realize that truth and honesty are hard commodities to come by, but let’s momentarily see if we can stomach the reality the people of Yemen have had to endure as the global community chose to avert its gaze. Yes, a school was bombed and children were butchered. Yemen was violated and scarred beyond the tolerable and the comprehensible. What else is new? Yemen has died a thousand deaths already, and none have come to its rescue.

NONVIOLENCE

Presidential Elections Need Not Matter So Much

Timothy Braatz | ZNet – TRANSCEND Media Service

So vote happily for a presidential candidate, or hold your nose and vote, or don’t vote at all, but help build a nonviolent movement to compel the president to act for human good. The greater that movement, the less presidential elections will matter. Learn from the successes and failures of the Civil Rights Movement. And keep in mind the words of Mohandas Gandhi, which Martin Luther King learned to quote: “There go my people. I must rush to catch up with them, for I am their leader.”

Now, wars are carried out as a matter of course. With multiple war fronts and conflicts fermenting all around, many are becoming desensitized. Americans particularly have, sadly, swallowed the serum of perpetual war, to the extent that they rarely mobilize in any serious way against it. In other words, a state of war has become the status quo.

Experts dispatched to the battlefield in July saw little cause for hope, especially since this siege is one of the oldest fronts in the war. “In 30 years, the area has shrunk approximately by half,” said a scientist who examined the onslaught. “There doesn’t seem anything able to stop this.”

But we “normals” have just been lucky enough to have not yet decompensated because of some yet-to-happen, desperation-inducing life situation. And thus we may not have yet been given a billable diagnosis with a billable code number, and so we have not yet been prescribed some unaffordable prescription drug that could put us on the road to permanent dependence, disability and institutionalization. “The term “iatrogenic” means doctor, drug or surgery-caused disease.

Silence is a word pregnant with multiple meanings: for many a threat; for others a nostalgic evocation of a time rendered obsolete by technology; for others a sentence to boredom; and for some, devotees of the ancient arts of contemplation, reading, and writing, a word of profound, even sacred importance. Gandhi, the revolutionary, put it perfectly, “In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.”
