Accounting for Differences in Outcome of the Arab Spring

Why did the Arab Spring affect states differently? What accounts for these differences in outcome? This article seeks to address that very question. Globally, no state is a “perfect democracy” but some are obviously closer and more exemplary than others. Democracy is multi-dimensional meaning that there are components therein, all of which are necessary forContinue reading “Accounting for Differences in Outcome of the Arab Spring”

A Country I Could Call Home, an open letter from an Armenian-Syrian DACA recipient

Since the “victory” of Donald J. Trump, white nationalism has removed its own veil. Layers and layers. It has always existed. In fact, it is the original sin of America. Even when I arrived here in 1995, I felt it. It was all around me. I could smell it. I could taste it. I hatedContinue reading “A Country I Could Call Home, an open letter from an Armenian-Syrian DACA recipient”

This Glass Design

Poetry is dead in a world with no head, A world with one body that plucks at its bread, A hunger or thirst, no intellect to quench, Terrorizing the world while we sit from the bench, Is there a light at the end of the tunnel, Or are we foolishly tracing the fence, All along aContinue reading “This Glass Design”
