Under the Rug, but Not in a Vacuum: Technology for the Social Good in Context

This past Sunday and Monday, I attended the Social Good Summit that took place in New York City.  The two days were filled with talks from journalists to activists to writers to scholars and they all sought to address the role that technology could play in some of the world's most pressing problems.  



Some speakers reflected on the conflict in Israel and Palestine, while other spoke to creating tools for women's empowerment.  Another speaker discussed her campaign for equality for…

WE DON’T NEGOTIATE LIFE: THE DEFENSE OF INDIGENOUS LANDS AND WATERS IN HONDURAS

By Beverly Bell and Tory Field

Rio Blanco, a Lenca indigenous community of 400 families,…

Postcolonization Theory as it Relates to Globalization and Modernization

Many people recognize globalization as the understanding that the world is becoming a more interconnected place; that ideas, technology, events, and people move porously through state, national, and regional boundaries. But for those scholars who are focused on peace- specifically international peace- are aware that globalization is much more than that. Globalization is also the evolution of the concept of nation-state, addresses the concerns around modernization, and derives a large amount…

EMERGING MARKETS OVERTAKE RICH NATIONS BY 2025 SAYS WB

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Good news has played harmonious cords for the world’s emerging markets recently, as the World Bank released its most honest forecast that they will equalize wealth production with the richest nations by 2025. This wonderful forecast alone is very good news that is cause for celebration this early, as it means the era of hegemonism by the wealthiest nations…

RP MAIN TARGET OF GLOBAL OLIGARCHY’S MACHINATIONS

This article is hereby republished for re-echoing of themes about machinations by the global elites (oligarchs-political-military-technocratic) in the world and my country. Their local puppets were able to install a coño kid, Noynoy Aquino, to power. What their current agenda should be our subject of continuing inquiry. The same elites already destroyed parts of New Zealand and Japan this year with the Tesla Earthquake Machine or TEM.

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…

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY MUST INTERVENE IN LIBYA

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

World opinion has been moving closer to approving a full intervention to oust Libya’s mad leader Kadhafy. As to what forms of intervention will be adopted, global leaders are still in the dark as of the moment.

 

I am not wont to see foreign intervention myself in the internal affairs of any country. This is a matter of respecting the principle of sovereignty, mutual respect, and cooperation among nations.

PH MILITARY CORRUPTION CONNECTS TO PENTAGON

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Pleasant day to you fellow global citizens!

 

Criminal investigations are currently hounding the Philippine military, with retired generals serving as frontal targets of congressional investigations. The dirty practices among echelon officers in the headquarters of the AFP (Armed Forces of the Philippines) include huge slush funds juggled from soldiers’ salaries and ghost battalions, and listening to the investigation…
