Help Make PCDN Easier to Find and Use (1 minute now to save you hours later)

With all due respect to the Pittsburgh Campaign for Democracy Now! and the plasmid PCDNa3, I think it's unfortunate that this global PCDN site with almost 20,000 users doesn't rank higher on Google for the search term 'PCDN'- and that matters because I don't feel like typing 'internationalpeaceandconflict' each time I want to get to this fantastic site.

 

So I'm putting out a call for EVERYONE who uses this site to take one minute to use Google, type…

Pakistan: likely to follow the Arab spring?

What is the likelihood of a mass-level movement in Pakistan, of the kind we have seen in Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain and Libya? I would have said ‘very little’, if in the near past there wasn’t the notable example of the lawyers’ movement for the restoration of judiciary and democracy. Even then, there are many who would reject the possibility of another movement in the near future, because they think that the situation of Pakistan is entirely different from states that have either…

Bahareh Hedayat, Iranian Woman Activist: "A Woman of Thirty" in Prison

By Elahe Amani



The 1832 work of French novelist Balzac, “A Woman of Thirty” (Une Femme de Trente Ans), is the story of a spirited woman during the 19th century. In “A Woman of Thirty,” Eugenie is the finest Balzac female character, radiant in generosity of her love. The story clung to my memory after first reading it at the age of seventeen. Eugenie perseveres amidst her own 19th century European society of pain and of limits on her aspirations. One of the lines of the story that has… Continue

seeded by Shaheen Sultan Dhanji - The Absurdity of Capitalism

By Mobeen chughtai - Look around you today and what do you see?

Confusion? Disorder? Apathy and distrust?

Is this the gist of the world? Is this the promised culmination of thousands of years of human progress? Have we been reduced to this? And perhaps the most important question of all: in this era of corporate prosperity why are we so empty?

In order to understand the world around us today we must accept that we, as human beings, have entered the era of capitalism. But…

seeded by Shaheen Sultan Dhanji - The Phenomenon of Language

 By Mobeen Chughtai - Language has also sometimes played the role of unifying two nations or ethnicities. The Latino countries of Mexico and Spain are a classic example. The Mexican language is actually a derivative/dialect of the Spanish. The two varieties are rather similar in their syntax (by and large), but with more noticeable differences in the phonology. The reason for the Latino culture and values still being alive and observed in the Latin countries is the role which language is…

GLOBAL OLIGARCHS WINNING IN AQUINO’S DISPENSATION

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Global oligarchs and their military-technocratic-political subalterns supported Noynoy Aquino’s presidency. Their bridgeheads here are the likes of the Makati Business Club, Cuisia-Paderanga Opus Dei troikas, and the oligarchs whose names sound Filipino but whose own businesses have grown global in scope.

 

Through the PPP or Public Private Partnerships, both foreign and local oligarchs have been partnering to monopolize benefits…
