    Misunderstood Myanmar - A Review of Dr Koh Kim Seng's Book

    in Books

    You are invited to the ICERM Radio Book Review Program.  


    Date: Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 8:00 pm in EST, New York. 


    Host: Chavie Brumer.


    Guest and Author: Dr Koh Kim Seng.


    We are happy to announce the review of "Misunderstood Myanmar – An Introspective Study Of A Southeast Asian State In Transition".


    Join us to listen to the untold stories about Myanmar as Dr. Koh Seng talks about his extensive field work in Myanmar, and reports on his close encounters with the military Junta, and with business and bureaucratic elites.


    “This book argues that to understand the vicissitudes of Myanmar’s recent history and the behavior of its generals one has to grasp the dynamic interaction (struggle even) between, on one hand, its external environment (milieu exterieur), including the disgruntled diaspora alongside the U.S. led international community, and on the other, the internal environment (milieu interieur) consisting of the generals’ ideological orientation in politics and economics which , the author argues, exceptionally , still draws from a well of adverse colonial experiences and betrayals, as well as from religion and culture. ‘Exceptionally’ because unlike other developing states Myanmar has been isolated from the international world for so long that those same internal factors have crystallized and come to take on a significance which, arguably,  exceeds the role played by history, culture and religion in other parts of the world."


    To listen to the show, please stay on this page. To ask questions, dial +1-(347) 989-8294 or join the chat discussion.

    Geoengineering and in particular Solar Radiation Management. [Yes. Again.]


    Lyme Disease and biological warfare. [Un-huh. Yep.]


    Instead of asking What is the Meaning of Life? could we be asking Where is the Meaning of Life? as suggested in Carl Safina's book.

    Conservative Religion: Bondage and Discipline of the Spirit

    in Spirituality

    Last week, terrorists shot up the offices of a satirical French magazine that has run pieces perceived as being critical of Islam and Mohammad. Conservative Christians have of late returned to their book burning tactics of old, and are themselves far from innocent in the "killing people we can't get to comply" category. Buddhist monks in Myanmar have become violent and attacked Muslims, despite belonging to a tradition that expressly prohibits violence. It's to the point where you almost couldn't blame somebody for thinking that religion does more to increase violence than to work for peace. The problem is that the only way to hold such a belief is to work very hard to ignore the teachings of the founders of the great religious traditions and instead focus only on a subgroup of practitioners of those traditions.


    The problem is that fundamentalists of all stripes care very little about the historic teachings of their tradition and prefer instead to focus on the teachings of modern day leaders who distort the original teachings of their tradition beyond recognition. Why and how that happens - and how such practices feed into the same kind of nonsense on the Atheist side - are the focus of today's program.
