DEPOPULATION, GENOCIDE: GLOBAL OLIGARCHY’S POPULATION AGENDA

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…

seeded by Shaheen Sultan Dhanji - Beyond the Genocidal Concept of Tribal Homelands (Mahmood Mamdani)

On the East African Federation

Mahmood Mamdani

'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…

Juárez...Juárez...Juárez

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…

Murdoch Has Blood Up to His Shoulders

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.

I'm…

LARGE CLASS, MAD DISCOURSE: SAME ROOTS

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…

U.N. uses mediation strategies outlined in my book 'Elusive Peace: How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts'

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…

Going Shopping with Tom Friedman

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…

LARGE CLASS IN UNIVERSITIES: OUTDATED, AUTHORITARIAN!

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

It’s late afternoon as I write this piece, and it’s the longest day in the northern hemisphere too (summer solstice). I will devote this piece to the matter of large university classes that are the mode of instruction in many academic institutions across the globe.

 

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