        • World Transformation through Citizen Diplomacy with Extraterrestrial Civilizations

          Dr Michael Salla reviews the development of citizen diplomacy in international relations and conflict resolution theory, and applies it to the extraterrestrial presence. He explains how, since its emergence in the 1970’s, citizen diplomacy was resisted by official diplomats, but over the last decade has been increasingly accepted by the diplomatic corps of many countries. The U.S. State Department, for example, now actively seeks ways to complement official or ‘Track One’ diplomacy with ‘Track two’ or ‘citizen diplomacy’ initiatives. Dr Salla reveals how galactic diplomacy with extraterrestrial civilizations has been secretly occurring at an ‘official’ level without the awareness of the general public or elected political representatives. He discusses that citizen diplomacy initiative needs to be undertaken in order to redress the conflicts arising from covert ‘agreements’ between government agencies and some extraterrestrial groups. As a former university professor who received significant government grants for his ‘citizen diplomacy’ initiatives, Dr Salla provides valuable insights and conceptual tools for those contemplating citizen diplomacy initiatives with extraterrestrial civilizations.

            An exhilirating journey to some of the planet's remotest and most dangerous places to explore the sharp end of globalization. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, international corporations and governments have embraced the idea of a global village: a shrinking, booming world in which everyone benefits. What if that's not the case? Alex Perry, award-winning foreign correspondent, travels from the South China Sea to the highlands of Afghanistan to the Sahara to see first-hand globalization at the sharp end -- and it's not pretty. Whether it's Shenzen, China's boom city where sweatshops pay under-age workers less than $4 a day, or Bombay, where the gap between rich and poor means million-dollar apartments overlook million-people slums, or on the high seas with the pirates of southeast Asia who prey on the world's central trade artery, or South Africa, where Mandela's dream for a Rainbow Nation is being crushed by a new economic apartheid, Perry demonstrates, vividly and chillingly, that for every winner in our brave new world, there are hundreds of millions of losers. And be they Chinese army veterans, Indian Maoist rebels or the Somali branch of al Qaeda, they are all very, very angry. Falling Off the Edge is an adrenaline-charged journey through the developing world, which reveals with clarity that globalization starts wars. Far from living in a time of peace and prosperity, Perry suggests, the boom is about to go bang.

                    History seems to repeat itself and mankind's actions seem to defer to age old mythic presence. The "Dying God" motif recalling ancient power struggles seems embodied in the modern mythos of powerful weaponry. This 2001 piece, created in Lightwave 3D software.
