DEPOPULATION, GENOCIDE: GLOBAL OLIGARCHY’S POPULATION AGENDA
Erle Frayne Argonza
Good morning from Manila!
Those more aware fellows on Earth may be reflecting right now about the long-term agenda of the global oligarchy regarding population. We note the rise of the neo-Malthusians within and outside the UN and international bodies from the 70s onwards, their position buttressing the toxic ‘greenies’ demonization of humans as the cause of…Continue

'East Africa has two post-colonial traditions of citizenship', writes Mahmood Mamdani: territorial and ethnic. If the region is to have a political federation, it will need to be based on a common citizenship, he argues: 'Which one will it be?'
I became interested in the question of why the old community collapsed after I returned to Uganda from the University of Dar es Salaam in 1979. I spent months reading…Continue

El 2 de Junio a las 5:30pm arribé a Juárez no con el fin de seguir la marcha sino con el interés de conocer lo que pueda ser mi futuro hogar gracias a mi interés por una maestría de la Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez (UACJ).
Chihuahua tiene una de las sierras más bonitas entre el desierto, una cultura que se te cae la boca (Rarámuris, Odame, Guarijios,etc), el estado más grande de México ... y unos paisajes que invitan a las aves y a todos al acceso de vías de comunicación de…Continue

WHAT SPORT MEANS TO ME!
I had the most remarkable encounter last week at the University of the Western Cape (UWC). Their Interdisciplinary Centre of Excellence for Sport Science and Development (a mouthful, but worth every syllable!) was…Continue
Nailing Rupert Murdoch for his employees' phone tapping or bribery would be a little like bringing down Al Capone for tax fraud, or George W. Bush for torture. I'd be glad to see it happen but there'd still be something perverse about it.
I remember how outraged Americans were in 2005 learning about our government's warrantless spying, or for that matter how furious some of my compatriots become when a census form expects them to reveal how many bathrooms are in their home.

LARGE CLASS, MAD DISCOURSE: SAME ROOTS
Erle Frayne D. Argonza
Magandang hapon! Good afternoon!
Classes have resumed here in Manila/Philippines, and our campuses are again swarming with pupils, students, teachers. Focused on their tasks, the same stakeholders are barely aware of what’s going on in the world around them, a world that is changing fast at confusing rate.
While the rugs under our feet our changing, the old…Continue

The UN’s first resolution for peace mediation conference July 5th in Instanbul gained little media attention. However, this is an epic event, symbolizing the UN’s new efforts to use mediation in the peace process. Using the strategies outlined in my book ‘Elusive Peace: How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts’ emphasis on giving women larger roles in peace negotiations is essential. Women consistently bring issues to the peace table that men in…Continue
UN Women and the United Nations Department of Political Affairs (DPA) have recently launched a joint strategy on gender and mediation. The goal of this strategy is to achieve greater effectiveness of UN mediation efforts through the increased participation of women at all levels of conflict resolution and peacemaking and strengthened capacity to address gender issues in peace processes.
As part of this strategy, the UN Women Peace and Security Cluster is…Continue
I like Tom Friedman. He’s not always right, and sometimes I vehemently disagree with him, but I like his big picture, mega view of the world. As an analyst he’s pretty good at coming up with insights regarding trends and tendencies. As a communicator, he’s equally good at explaining those trends and tendencies.
While attending the2011 Aspen Ideas Festival, Friedman was interviewed by Walter Isaacson, President of Aspen Institute. As always with Friedman it was a far ranging and…Continue

Large classes are a thing of the past. The large class modality was referred to as ‘Great Man…Continue
