October 2: Nonviolence Day, Gandhi’s Birthday

Antonio C. S. Rosa | Editor – TRANSCEND Media Service, 3 Oct 2016

It doesn’t matter the amount or prevalence of violence employed or practiced anywhere anytime. It was from within a violent environment, which oppressed him both in South Africa and in India, that the Mahatma, born Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, gave birth to his philosophy of nonviolence. Yin-Yang. The world is readier than ever for it. Nevertheless, besides a philosophy NV can be many things for many people depending on contexts.

(Português) Civilizados, Bárbaros e Selvagens

Antonio C. S. Rosa – TRANSCEND Media Service, 3 Mar 2014

Os ingleses do século XIX classificaram os povos e raças em Civilizados, Bárbaros e Selvagens, com base nas respectivas “evoluções”. Eles baseavam-se primariamente em três factores: a Teoria da Evolução, de Charles Darwin; a Revolução Industrial, nas origens do capitalismo industrial; e a Reforma da Igreja Católica, o cisma de onde surgiu o Protestantismo. Falsas premisas que levaram a falsas conclusões.

The Man in the Mirror: A Glimpse at the Heart and Mind behind TRANSCEND Media Service

Marilyn Langlois – TRANSCEND Media Service, 30 Oct 2023

After spending a year of military service guarding the Brazilian President in Brasilia, he was arrested and tortured by agents of the 1964 coup d’état regime who suspected him of being a Communist based on a membership card to the Brazil-Russia Cultural Union. The 20-year-old had joined to learn how to play chess… Antonio told me he felt rage, powerlessness and the urge for revenge… But he found another way.

Negotiate Peace in Ukraine Now!

Richard E. Rubenstein – TRANSCEND Media Service, 28 Mar 2022

Interestingly, most news sources in the U.S. and Europe continue to attribute Russia’s military difficulties in Ukraine to their own incompetence or Ukrainian heroism, but seldom to the $3.2 billion worth of high-tech weapons that the U.S. has shipped to Kyiv since 2014. Joe Biden, of course, is an architect of this de facto Western alliance with Ukraine. What his end game is nobody can say.

Johan Galtung, a Pioneer: Conceptualizing Peace Journalism

Antonio C. S. Rosa, M.A. | Editor - TRANSCEND Media Service, 22 Oct 2018

Before the 19th century, we had “disease journalists” who reported in detail how epidemics were spreading and how people suffered. Today we have “health journalists” who write about current research on new cures and therapies, and inform about healthy lifestyles promoting health as a value. Similarly, the time has come for “peace journalists” to write not only about war, but also about its causes, prevention, and ways to restore peace by nonviolent means and promoting peace as a value. They need not invent themselves solutions to conflicts–in the same way that health journalists need not invent cures for diseases themselves; they ask specialists.

Missing Links for Peace, Civility, Social Well-Being

Antonio C. S. Rosa | Editor - TRANSCEND Media Service, 23 Oct 2017

We will keep missing out if we insist on relying solely on our intellect, acquired knowledge, reason and intelligence; human potential encompasses much more. The process of living peacefully rests also on degrees of spiritual-emotional [not religious] evolution. It all starts and grows within the individual and then manifests into society in myriad ways.

The Sexualities Revolution

Johan Galtung and Antonio C. S. Rosa – TRANSCEND Media Service, 17 Jul 2017

Kinsey played a major role. Very solid, very empirical, vast, comprehensive, fought by some churches and no doubt by some patriarchs. But science prevailed… Unfortunately sex is generally confused with love both in literature and in reality. Sex is ephemeral pleasure of the genitalia—any genitalia. Love is emotion, energy, synergy between two human beings. Love and sex complement but do not replace each other, being of utterly different natures.

Estudos de Paz e de Conflito, entre outros fatores civilizadores para os seres humanos, representam a receita, o mapa para o cume da montanha.

Declaration of the Mussalaha Delegation to Syria on the Refugee Situation in Lebanon

Antonio C. S. Rosa, editor – TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 May 2013

Since the cause of this crisis is the widespread violence in Syria, we call for an immediate end of all aid – lethal and nonlethal – to all combatants, an immediate and mutual ceasefire, and immediate negotiations among all the parties without preconditions. Lebanese citizens, Palestinian refugees living in Lebanon, Lebanese charitable institutions and other Lebanese civil society institutions deserve much credit for providing support that the international society has not done. However, a refugee influx of this magnitude is more than any society the size of Lebanon can accommodate without aid from the UN.

Antonio C. S. Rosa, editor – TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 May 2013

Mussalaha Peace Mission to Syria – May 1- 11, 2013. We consider it beyond debate that the Syrian people have the right to determine their own government and their own future. Foreign interference is currently preventing the Syrian people from exercising their right to self-determination. We are concerned that such pernicious intervention is tearing apart the fabric of the country itself, with long-term consequences that can only be imagined. The cautionary example of Iraq serves to remind us of the dire consequences of such international folly.

On the Road to Damascus

Antonio C. S. Rosa | Editor – TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 May 2013

I participated, May 1-11, 2013 in the Mussalaha International Peace Delegation to Lebanon-Syria alongside fellow TRANSCEND member Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, from Ireland, and 15 others from eight countries. Like Paul meeting the angel Ananias on his way to Damascus experienced a change of heart and became St Paul, so have I met many angels on my own Road to Damascus and, although not gone into sainthood, I have reinterpreted and upgraded my own vision of reality—which I now share with you.

François Houtart – Forum Mundial de Alternativas, 1 Apr 2013

La reconstrucción del equilibrio del metabolismo entre la naturaleza y los seres humanos por un cambio de paradigma y las transiciones El problema de la ruptura del metabolismo socio-ambiental es el resultado de una lógica más amplia que abarca el modo de acumulación y el predominio del valor de cambio, la organización colectiva al servicio de la reproducción del capital y la visión del mundo orientada por un progreso lineal en un planeta inagotable al servicio de una minoría.

Spirituality and Virtue as Corollaries to Peace

Antonio C. S. Rosa | Editor - TRANSCEND Media Service, 18 Mar 2013

We are meant by nature, the universe, life itself (let’s leave the gods out of this) to be superior beings, elevated in virtue, goodness, righteousness, integrity, ethics, honesty, morality, uprightness, evolved consciousness, and not merely to get richer, smarter, sexier, more cunning, and more knowledgeable to dominate everything and everybody we contemplate-if possible by force. This is the real danger, the aspect that could prompt these smarter, more aggressive (meaning less civilized) people in power to explode the planet through a nuclear war, thus creating a second asteroid belt.

(PORTUGUESE) FORA COM TODOS!

Naomi Klein, 16 Feb 2009

Observando a multidão na Islândia a bater frigideiras e panelas até o governo caír fez-me recordar um refrão popular em círculos anticapitalistas, em 2002: “Vocês são a Enron, nós somos a Argentina!” A mensagem era bastante simples. Vocês – políticos e presidentes-executivos em alguma cúpula comercial – são como os fraudulentos e temerários executivos da […]
