Panel discussion: “World Peace – Challenges and Impact of Globalization”
Organizer: Asian Indian Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey
Date: Nov 16, 2008 in Somerset, New Jersey, USA.
Panelists: Rajiv Malhotra and Dr.Subramanian Swamy
Introduction: Seema Singh
The scope of the topic, “World Peace” is mind bogglingly huge, and one has to hand it to the panelists for covering it in depth for their audience. Rajiv’s mastery over knowing and conveying the issues & nuances of Global History, & its relevance to Current affairs is unparalleled. A most important takeaway is that the prevailing paradigms, which most take for granted, are subjected to thorough questioning. This would include questioning the correctness of either the ‘Left” or the “Right” in their views on Globalization.
As befits a Geopolitical Guru, Rajiv has developed alternative frameworks on all these wide ranging but interconnected topics of Culture, Religion, Economics, & Globalization. These frameworks are dealt with in his many articles which we will be featuring on Medha Journal, and in some of his upcoming books.
Two relevant pieces of his have just been published on Medha Journal:
The Myth Of Hindu Sameness
Geopolitics and Sanskrit Phobia
