These Are The Times

So here I am, Mum, Dad. Witnessing something colossal on the world stage, in the week where we remember events we thought could never be repeated. For the first time in my life I believe that they genuinely could. And for the first time in my life I feel compelled to define who I am, and witness my friends doing the same.

The Somme on the Stage

It feels strange writing an article about the play I saw in Liverpool recently - a play about the First World War - because the news is filled with so many shocking killings: the shooting of 49 young people in a nightclub in Orlando, Florida; the vicious murder of Jo Cox, a young Labour MP in Yorkshire.

A Deal for Greece May Have Been Reached, but It Is Germany Who Should Be Humble

John Bird | Posted 14.07.2016 | UK Politics

Germany is in an invidious position. It outstrips its fellow Europeans. It knows how to run a successful economy at a time when most European economies are lame and dependent on high levels of government support. It knows and demonstrates that hard work and fiscal maturity rewards all. Unfortunately it does not understand its own history and the history of Europe. It does not understand that the Germanic grabbing of Europe in two world wars has screwed with the economies and cultures of Europe.

Sometimes art can be beautiful and swell the heart, or it challenges and leads you to re-examine your world view, but on rare occasions it does both. When this happens you find yourself left almost a new person, seeing the world through new eyes.

How Arms Companies Fuelled and Exacerbated the First World War

Andrew Smith | Posted 09.02.2015 | UK Politics

By the end, 16million people had been killed and 20million wounded in a war that had devastated and destroyed whole cities. Civilians and soldiers, often from poor backgrounds, paid the terrible price for a battle that was brought on by the rich and powerful rulers of competing imperialist powers...Very few benefited from the killing. It did, however, line the pockets of arms companies and their shareholders.

The World War One Centenary is a time to reflect one of the biggest wastes of human lives in the 20th Century. Why it happened, the lives it destroyed and how future wars can be averted are important lessons for our age. The ceramic poppies at the tower of London - 888,246 of them, each representing an extinguished human life - formed the centre of many moving tributes across the country.

Let Us Remember Them, Not Just on Remembrance Sunday or 11 November, But All Year Round

Jonathan Arnott | Posted 11.01.2015 | UK Politics

Every day should be Remembrance Day. We should treat our war veterans with respect all year round, honour the military covenant and make sure that those injured or psychologically scarred in the line of duty get the care and medical treatment they deserve. My Party has views on how that should best be achieved, but this is not a time for partisan politics.

It's not that long ago when people were worried about remembering WW1. Not in how to mark the 100th anniversary of the war as has been the case recently but whether people would still care enough to remember in the war at all.

The Psychology of Coping With War

This swapping back and forth between the horrific and the mundane or even jolly, is not uncharacteristic of common ways of ways coping with chronic trauma: the black humour of a doctors' mess, for example. Humour is known to be an effective coping strategy, associated with a lower risk of post traumatic stress disorder.

Social Media and Modern Warfare

I'm actually not 100% sure that social media inherently is good. Yes, it's possible for people to post real-time news, yes it encourages every individual to voice their thoughts and be accessible but what happens when the social media news agenda gets hijacked?

Imagining a World Without War

What we need to do now is go further... to imagine, and then create, a world without war. With the hideous death-toll in Gaza, the chaos in Syria and Ukraine, the turmoil in Libya, that might seem a long way from the reality of 2014. But the important first step is to say "this is possible", and then to start to plan the actions needed to bring a peaceful world into being.
