I would like to know or shed more… Continue

Killing Resolves Nothing

The plane I was on landed in Washington, D.C., Sunday night, and the pilot came on the intercom to tell everyone to celebrate: our government had killed Osama bin Laden. This was better than winning the Super Bowl, he said.

Set aside for a moment the morality of cheering for the killing of a human being -- which despite the pilot's prompting nobody on the plane did. In purely Realpolitik terms, killing foreign leaders whom we've previously supported has been an ongoing…

New Book, Elusive Peace, Argues for More Sophisticated Mediators for International Conflicts

Ever wonder why peace seems so difficult in the Middle East? In Africa? In Afghanistan and Pakistan? Too often, the headlines trumpet peace and months later declare failure. Why is it that internationally negotiated peace accords may cause more violence and genocide, not less? Why is it that in fifteen years of international climate change conferences, little has been accomplished? Why is it that the Rwandan genocide was directly caused by the Arusha negotiations? That the Oslo accords…

Why a Dog Is More Qualified for Congress Than Robert Hurt

The Charlottesville Daily Progress, to its credit, did something that I don't think it or most small-town newspapers have done before, and certainly have not done often: it wrote about the local congress member's position on military spending. Sure it's where half of our income taxes go, but it's hardly ever mentioned.

Hurt told the paper that he wants to cut spending, but not in the military: "I think everybody would agree that national defense is a top priority for our government… Continue

Emerging movement for peace

I did not feel safe when I travelled to Bardiya in the last week of November, 2010. Just before my journey, the district treasurer of the Nepali Congress was killed by unidentified persons on the east-west highway near the Bardiya National Park, while he was returning to his home around 6pm. I landed at nearby Nepalganj airport around 6.30pm, and then had to drive one-and-a-half hours to the district headquarters of Bardiya, at Guleriya. Just a couple of days before, two children aged 13-14…

seeded by Shaheen Sultan Dhanji - Songs of the Wounded Heart


Many people who know little or nothing about Laal’s evolution question the practicality of building socio-political movements through music and poetry. Too obviously, there is some truth to this skepticism; music, in its essence is a language constructed on notes and percussion. Revolutionary movements on the contrary are political-economic-social movements that are led by oppressed classes to overthrow a system of exploitation. However, revolutionary movements are…

Erle Frayne D. Argonza


Magandang umaga! Good morning!


It may be about time to reveal the highly controversial, if not incontrovertible fact, that the very people who comprise the world’s elites—oligarchs, politicians, technocrats, military elites—comprise a distinct genetic make-up altogether. The elites aren’t human but reptilian, thus explicating the great wall of social distance between them and the underclasses.

Visit The Green Pen!

The Green Pen is my personal soapbox, a place for me to express thoughts and feelings, musings and rants, to have fun with words -- about things spiritual, environmental, social, political, economic. And of course about peace. Soapboxes are in public places (as London's legendary Hyde Park) on purpose, and so I invite conversations with you, for it is through civil discourse that we can gain some perspective on the seeming chaos of…

Sorry but it’s not YOUR project

(Whispering.) “Psst, excuse me, but actually it’s not ‘your’ program. And if you think that it is, we may have a problem on our hands.”

Many would argue that who owns what in development and peacebuilding is a key aspect, if not the aspect, to a project’s or program’s success.

And so a person’s choice word choice when describing their work or do-gooder endeavor can actually reveal quite a lot.

Some may think…

Uganda Peace Journalism Project Benefits Journalists, Communities

KAMPALA, UGANDA—As my time in Uganda winds down, the obvious question about my 10 months here is whether my presence made any difference for this wonderful, maddening country and its resourceful, friendly, poverty-stricken residents.


Did I waste my time and American tax dollars (my $270,000 peace journalism project was supported by the U.S. State Department and USAID)? Am I just another arrogant Westerner preaching mzungu (white person) values?
