When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I am a pacifist
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Violence, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Rather a combination of factors with varying weight depending on the specific conflict/ issue, but having to choose ONE, then prejudice. Prejudice underlies group identity formation in the sense of being partially construed in opposition to aliens/ non-members who become stereotyped in a cultural process of simplification leading to categories which appear "natural" and "fixed" to community members. It is then fairly easy to slide into confrontational myths, dehumanising Others and magnifying events.
Can we change the world?
More about me
I'm a sociologist, anthropologist, researcher and educator who cherishes cultural diversity but, above all, I'm a learner striving to push my own boundaries and a human being.
Promise to respect others and refrain from spamming?
