The laws being ratified and the bylaws being approved will exist for the unforeseeable future, and it is only right that the public take part in this process.

Harut Sassounian

The Turkish President's self-serving fake war against terrorism could have the tragic consequence of escalating the violence throughout Turkey and neighboring countries. If Ankara is truly interested in countering the Jihadists, it should have done that long ago, instead of arming and abetting ISIS and other terror groups.

In the end, if the current agreement goes forward and proves better than expected, Israeli leaders would, I hope, admit they erred and offer suitable apologies. But if it goes worse than advertised, then it will be Israel, plus its Arab neighbors, that will pay the heaviest price.

Benjamin R. Barber

A governance revolution is underway, founded on the irresistible rise of cities and the ongoing decline of sovereign nation states. That revolution is already evident in countries from Italy and France to China and the United States and opens a chapter in the history of democracy in which public power is localized but not privatized and thus made more, rather than less, democratic.
