The Elusiveness of Peace in a Suspect Global System

Saturday 6 February 2016, author(s)-editor(s) Tatah Mentan

A convenient veil is drawn over the many issues facing the majority of citizens on a daily basis as a result of the so-called free market. One is left with an impression that we live in a glorious utopia in which the crusaders of international capitalism continue in their quest to make life peaceful and better for all of humanity. It is also a world which has been at peace for 70 years with no ideological or economic conflict and in which all of humanity live their lives in harmony, benefiting from the fruits of globalization. This claim is nothing less than the rearrangement of the deck chairs on the Titanic, where the Titanic is actually the Global Economic & Financial System (GE&FS), storming its way through all countries and causing untold human suffering engineered by global pathocrats.

In this book Professor Tatah Mentan dissects human suffering from multidimensional crises such as terrorism, population-explosion, denial of human rights, economic inequality, racial discrimination, ideological extremism, religious intolerance, social injustice, ecological imbalance, consumerism, oppression of the weak, and so on. He then calls for a radical global ethics that expects us to realize our roles and duties regarding global peace. It includes the role and ideals of educationalists, the duties of scientists, philosophers, and thinkers, the inculcation of human values such as nonviolence and love.
