On Love & Justice: A Valentine's Day Reflection

We don’t talk about our hearts nearly enough in international aid and philanthropy. But this Valentine’s Day seems like a good time to do so. Our hearts draw us to this work, and if we keep them open enough, they are what tie us to this work when the frustrations and obstacles seem insurmountable.

A community leader and member of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska,…

Saudi Arabia’s Municipal Elections: Tough Lessons Learned from Islamic Conservatives

By Rob L. Wagner

 

The Sept. 29 municipal elections in Saudi Arabia mark the second round of polling in six years and the third in almost 50 years. The latest scheduled elections ostensibly will bring Saudis closer to developing democratic ideals espoused in the West. However, the elections also have prompted criticism from Saudi activists who assert that the electoral system prevents half the population from representation by denying women the right to vote…

Burning for Revolution: A Tribute to Muhammad Al Bouazizi

While I don't think I'll ever be hopeless enough to burn myself alive, I can't help but think that I am not so different from Muhammad Al Bouazizi. I, along with millions of educated young men and women throughout the world, are sick and tired of tyranny, injustice, under-employment, and despair.



If only Mr. Bouazizi had lived to see the 'fruits' of his desperate yet courageous actions. The Jasmine Revolution is likely to inspire other upheavals in the region, if not the world. If a… Continue

Confessions of a Recovering Neocolonialist on Martin Luther King Day

Harare, 2002. The word came. Cash is in the banks. The three colleagues I was standing near at the time and I quickly jumped in the car to get downtown to Standard Chartered as soon as possible.



It was my first “real job” in the development sector after graduate school. I knew enough to know how little I knew, and little else.



The conversation in the car from the office to Nelson Mandela Avenue inevitably turned to the growing inequality between our corporate aid agency… Continue

Why Pentagon Says MLK Would Love War Today

According to the Pentagon's lawyer, Martin Luther King Jr., if alive today, would view the US war on Afghanistan as both the act of a Good Samaritan and as necessary self-defense.

Jeh C. Johnson, the "Defense" Department's general counsel, said, on the one hand:

"I believe that if Dr. King were alive today, he would recognize that we live in a complicated world, and that our nation's…

Martin Luther King Jr. on Forgiveness

This is a sermon delivered by Martin Luther King at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church on Christmas of 1957. It deals with the question of how do we learn to love our enemies. For King the answer lies in forgiveness. In celebration of Martin Luther King day I wanted to share his inspiring words.



"First, we must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. It is impossible even to begin the act of loving one's enemies… Continue

Where are the Kings?

A reader asked me the question: Queens, okay, I get it, but where are the kings? Ah, where indeed?



To my mind, kings are a little more problematical than queens at the moment. The reason for this is that I think it’s hard to be a man these days. Think of it. When John Wayne ruled the Wild West, and when Father knew best, the rules were pretty clear on how to be a man.



Since the time of John Wayne and Father, when women were defined by their men, women have been… Continue
