This particular gathering focuses on media, perhaps as in part responsible for our current shameful ugliness, as well as on ways media might contribute toward needed healing. My first premise is that our world is full of noble, courageous, journalists ready to give their lives to honor truth-telling for the sake of a better world. Although I admire honorable journalists and am grateful for the indispensable service they offer, I myself try to avoid them and have as little to do with them as possible.
I described three areas of international war or conflict: Russia-Ukraine. Hamas-Israel. and Tensions over Taiwan and the South China Sea.I explained that each of the three are different. Russian-Ukraine is “internecine,” an “in-family” fight. All are Orthodox and Slavs. Hamas-Israel is civilizational between two world communities with religious ties: Western “Judeo-Christian” civilization, and Islamic civilization. The Pacific conflict has two cultures and two roots. Asian culture versus Western Culture, and Religious culture versus Marxist culture.I suggested that this level and intensity of war and conflict is greater than any of us have lived through in our lifetime.
