Should We Police the World? America & Security in the 21st Century

Throughout history, various states have requested the assistance of the US to help suppress insurgency. Often these insurgencies are supported and funded by external powers. A prime modern example of this is the current conflict in Syria. Initially perceived as a part of the Arab Spring, the US stood with so-called “rebel forces” in theirContinue reading “Should We Police the World? America & Security in the 21st Century”

How Arab Unity Became An Oxymoron – Another Tale of Orientalism

A more liberal strand of Islam might argue that cultural identity is tied to Islamic heritage. Furthermore, it encompasses all philosophy and knowledge into Islam, as opposed to radical Islam which excludes philosophies from the Enlightenment, Renaissance, and the mystical indigenous religions of various regions in the world, like Central Asia and Latin America. WhatContinue reading “How Arab Unity Became An Oxymoron – Another Tale of Orientalism”

If I Were President – 2016 and Beyond

There are many avenues that need to be walked in order to improve the US domestically. The US is still a global leader, but socio-economically it lags in development, compared to its allies in Europe and its emerging competitors in the East. The progressive wave which swept Europe in the 90s and early 2000s seems toContinue reading “If I Were President – 2016 and Beyond”

The Obama Doctrine – from Tehran to Havana

I think its a beautiful thing to see a US-Cuban rapprochement. A full reconciliation of relations may be naive, but the so-called “Obama Doctrine” has made normalizing relations, with some of America’s most bitter “rivals” historically, part of the agenda. The Nuclear Deal with Iran (which American republicans are sworn to reverse, along with every other progressiveContinue reading “The Obama Doctrine – from Tehran to Havana”

“New America”: Immigration, Freeloading & the Republican Propaganda Machine

http://player.cnbc.com/p/gZWlPC/cnbc_global?playertype=synd&byGuid=3000409658&size=530_298 Are Immigrants Freeloaders? GOP, Trump & Rubio answer. The GOP is conflicted. They are ashamed that their disdain for genuine democracy is unfolding. They scurry to relinquish themselves of associations with one another, and they are desperate to convince the world that their views are not as outrageous as their party platform. A recipeContinue reading ““New America”: Immigration, Freeloading & the Republican Propaganda Machine”

2016: Clinton, Bush & Paul

   Republicans will do whatever they can to prevent Hillarys election.  I believe it is inevitable. The same sentiment I carried during my support for Obama in 2008 and 2012. God willing it will be a landslide victory and yet another milestone in our march towards progressive politics. Jeb Bush is probably the only seriousContinue reading “2016: Clinton, Bush & Paul”

Analyzing Political Undertones in Pop Culture Through Art

There is generally speaking a list of artistic works that, despite their aesthetic greatness, are either historically misrepresentative & inaccurate or merely biased in context and coverage. Some do justice, some don’t. Perception all depends on which angle you look at the subject. I wish for justice for all, but we must recognize, expose & bring to justice those distinct forces which causeContinue reading “Analyzing Political Undertones in Pop Culture Through Art”
