The Tectonic Shift In Global Migration?

by Timothy Kanevia Medium
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

The past century must take lessons from history with caution because things are different now. A millennium of lessons from the wars and diplomacies of nation-states may, or may not, be relevant in this era when the nation-state is evolving, when technologies have erupted to transform communication and transport, when human capital is orders of magnitude higher. The masses are literate now, for starters. In my mind, these are the tectonic forces, and they are a helpful light on policy debates.

Sunday, September 1, 2019

The Battalion Artist explores the three years, three months, and three days of Nat Bellantoni’s life on the Pacific front in World War II. He had known since childhood that he wanted to be—that he in fact was—an artist.
