I’m pleased to present you with the March-April 2017 issue of the Journal of Global Issues & Solutions.
This issue’s Page One Feature Paper is in the sphere of Economics. “Undemocratic Insidious Economic Controls”, by Michael Mifsud of Malaga, Spain, questions -- relative to current global economic manipulation -- “Whether it is any better for those who accumulate these gains by virtue of their party or religious dedication, depends on the spiritual content of their minds and or ability to live in a self deceptive void which could be no more than simple ignorance, despite the hold on power.” Continuing, Mr. Mifsud discusses the difficulty conducting effective investigative journalism in a deceptive and politicized environment.
Our following paper moves on to Theology, as Dr. Miloš Dokulil, Professor of Philosophy in Brno, Czech Republic, presents his paper “Has the Answerable Time Come to Us to Find a Globally Satisfactory Human Solution of Religious Questions?”. Professor Dokulil states that “If we consider the era of the relatively conscious Homo sapiens to cover approximately the last 200 000 years of his existence (when he already started to process information by linguistic means) then, in hindsight, we can contemplate as systematically religious only the last and very small fraction of this time”. He goes on to review the history of Christianity and Islam from inception on up to the current modern era.
Following, in the field of Culture and Cultural Shifts, Cultural Anthropologist, Psychologist and Consultant Dr. Andreas Eppink of Malaga, Spain brings us his paper “Hidden Goal in Modern Globalizing Culture: Examining Major Cultural Shifts in Western History”. This paper is excerpted from Dr. Eppink’s book, Hidden Goals in Modern Globalizing Culture, which was written in order to provide a model to better understand culture and its continuity. Dr. Eppink explains that “a model is an abstraction of reality facilitating its comprehension. The central thesis of this book is that humankind will always follow ten Hidden Goals (HG’s) throughout the span of a lifetime. These HG’s appear in different combinations and rankings, which accounts for their numerous expressions and outcomes”. In terms of Western Culture, an analysis its development shows large and important cultural shifts throughout its history. One of the central assumptions of Dr. Eppink’s theory is that cultural change is caused by a change in ranking of the ten Hidden Goals. The featured paper asks: “Which radical changes can be observed in the past 2000 years, and is there any proof of a change in ranking of the most pronounced HG’s?”
This issue’s closing paper features Part V of a special presentation in the topic area of Education: Life & Consciousness, by Naturalistic Philosopher Iain 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.
