The Curse of National Sovereignty
Justice & Governance
May 15, 2020

By: Glen T. Martin

The dogma of national sovereignty is an illusion and a curse. For those who understand the world system, the dogma of national sovereignty stands out as the single illusion that is most destructive of humanity's quest for a world of peace, justice, and sustainability.

Goodness Resurgent: A Big-Picture View of Impeachment and What's Next for America
Peacebuilding & Relations
Oct 07, 2019

By: Eric Stetson

We are at a low ebb of the tide in America. The waters of decency have receded, and the mudflats of depravity have emerged with their stench in our nostrils. In the muck, screaming with the rage of unbridled corruption, stands the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Book Review of The Bridge at the End of the World: Capitalism, the Environment, and Crossing from Crisis to Sustainability by James Gustav Speth
Food, Water & Environment
Jul 16, 2019

By: Glen T. Martin

This 2008 book investigates a vast literature on climate change and the environmental crisis. It analyses the problems, discusses what top environmental thinkers have proposed, and lays out a range of options that human beings have if we want to leave a habitable planet for future generations. As such it represents a major accomplishment and deserves careful reading by all who care about the Earth.

The Evolution of Human Consciousness and the Earth Constitution A Necessary Integration of Ends and Means
Justice & Governance
Jul 03, 2019

By: Glen T. Martin

What is the role of the Earth Constitution in the evolution of human consciousness? This is a question that comes up repeatedly in discussions of the meaning and significance of the Constitution for the Federation of Earth.

Americans only know what this means because Bill Clinton was impeached.
Impeachment: The Historical Argument
Justice & Governance
Jun 16, 2019

By: Eric Stetson

The year is 2050, and people are talking about political history. Somebody mentions “the Trump-Russia scandal.” Most people can’t remember what it is.

But people will always remember Bill Clinton getting impeached for lying about a blowjob. Why? Because he was impeached for it. Because, whatever the questionable merits of impeaching a president for perjury about his sex life, Congress chose to make it a big, historical issue — an issue so big and so historical that Clinton became one of only two presidents in American history to be impeached by the House of Representatives.

The Logic of Disarmament and the Tragedy of the Commons
Infrastructure & Resources
Jun 05, 2019

By: Glen T. Martin

The idea of the tragedy of the commons has become fundamental to the contemporary conceptual repertoire of those concerned with global issues. The idea was first formulated by economist William Forster Lloyd in 1833 and became a well-known hypothesis after the publication of Garrett Hardin’s famous article by that name in 1968 (see Hardin 1980). Most fundamentally to date, the idea has been used with respect to economics, ecology, population issues, and environmental science.

This Changes Nothing: A review of Naomi Klein’s book - This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs the Climate
Food, Water & Environment
May 31, 2019

By: Glen T. Martin

Naomi Klein spent five years researching this book. She travelled to many places around the world where environmental struggles were taking place between the dominant economic model of “dirty extractivism” and people struggling to protect their land, water, and air from the onslaughts of the capitalist exploitation model. She interviewed hundreds of people (indigenous leaders, climate activists, climate deniers, scientists, journalists, political leaders, UN officials, heads of major environmental groups) to give us a book that is brimming with interesting, thought provoking, facts, ideas, and descriptions of local struggles and their global implications.
