With warm wishes for a creative and innovative year to come, I’m pleased to present you with the January-February 2018 issue of the Journal of Global Issues & Solutions.
This issue’s Page One Feature Paper is authored by a regular contributor to this Journal, Mr. Michael Mifsud, Entrepreneur, Writer and International Consultant, based in Malaga, Spain. “The Collective Subconscious: The Soft Underbelly of Our Species: Did Self Consciousness and Religious Convictions Leave “Survival Needs” to Intermediaries?” delves into the complex topics of consciousness and the subconscious, and presents the concept of a ‘Collective Subconscious’. Mr. Mifsud reviews that “Throughout human history most have been governed by the few and against the general will. In democracies this would appear not to be possible with the safety catch of the so called ballot box. Yet nothing has changed and the end results of ‘free’ societies and those repressed by dictators often show little difference in terms of social benefits. In fact, after periods of hard dictatorial rule, the legacy of those attached to the system remains in the minds of those who preferred it that way and because the system benefitted them. Others even perhaps claimed the existence of a degree of ethical standards and rule of law which appeared to have disintegrated with the removal of the callous and imposed authority. Additionally, the release of the myriads of ‘social reformers’ trying to capture the middle ground of the new political stage seemed intent on causing an administrative chaos based on bullying behind screens to obtain a power platform. Needless to say the evolution of these can be seen today with relatively ineffectual union and civil rights movements seesawing through social history. Who they stand for is sometimes an enigma but in modern democracies it is obvious just how easy easily they assume and control the survival drive of the masses.”
Our following paper, “In Defense of Myanmar ― Compte Rendu,” explains of this still somewhat mysterious country, that “The Myanmar Government has taken the ‘gradualist’ approach to governing in the last 20 to 25 years, refurbishing their economy, rebuilding infrastructure, and getting as many dissidents/secessionists (and the like) as possible back into the national/governmental fold. The world at large understands that the past State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC) Government as, ipso facto, the Myanmar Government, has been attracting foreign investments, et cetera, and indeed they have, in their ‘gradualist approach’, succeeded in demonstrating to the world at large that they are a credible, no-nonsense government, a government large enough, a’posteriori, to look into the mirror, ascertain their own faults and blemishes and conclude that their 1950s/60s experiment in socialism did not quite go the way they liked or conceived and they are now prepared to follow the ‘Capitalist Road’ which was their original path, post-independence, 1948.”
Following, Ragnar Viir, M.D., Ph.D., of Helsinki, Finland, presents his paper within the topic area of Medicine: Personal Health & Fitness: “The Time for Uprising is Here.” There is a worldwide epidemic of sedentarism; in countries throughout the world, particularly in the developed nations, we simply spend too much time sitting and not enough time on our feet. This paper was originally written for an Estonian readership; it is presented here translated into English. This dissertation offers a review of the negative health aspects of sedentarism and simple habits we can develop for better health and fitness.
This issue concludes with Part X of a special presentation in the topic area of Education: Life & Consciousness, by Naturalistic Philosopher Mr. Iain Kirkaldy-Willis of Spain’s Canary Islands. “The Nature of Thought” is an on-going series of visual presentations. The author explains that “the use of image/text presentations has been chosen as a stimulating, provocative and inspiring format for consciousness raising. It is an approach that has evolved over the years from a wide variety of applications – as a gardener in Finland, piecing together a holistic agricultural approach to an adult educational community’s land and then making that part of that Folk High School’s curriculum – in use with villagers in the foothills of N. India, as a tool for awareness, healing and empowerment, in the face of socio-environmental collapse – in the designing of courses to meet adult needs for healing and change in the face of different kinds of personal crisis.” Excellent graphics and bright imagery vividly highlight this fascinating visual presentation.
