Donald Trump, a xenophobe and liar with no governing experience, could become the leader of the world’s most powerful nation after next week’s American election. That prospect scares the living daylights out of people around the planet, as these comments from HuffPost ’s international editions indicate.  That the vile campaign Trump waged could carry him so far calls into question even Winston Churchill’s withering assessment that, “democracy is the worst system devised by wit of man, except for all the others.” The hoary contention in basic civics texts that “anyone” can become president of the United States turns out, unfortunately, to be all too true

This article takes a humanistic approach by asking two questions: Which Chinese do the Chinese themselves revere and what does this reveal about the country’s place in the world moving forward?

“All men of sense,” one of America’s most imaginative founding fathers Alexander Hamilton once said, “will agree in the necessity of an energetic executive.” Rodrigo Duterte, the Philippines’ most popular mayor, was just elected to the presidency with the highest number of votes in the Southeast Asian country’s history.

This week, a new 21st century debate surfaced: How do we protect the data cloud we have all come to depend on when it is physically composed of cables running across the bottom of the ocean? The issue came to light after it was reported that Russian spy ships were operating near key cable routes. Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander James Stavridis writes that, “Well over 95 percent of everything moving on the global Internet passes through 200 or so highly active cables, some as deep underwater as Mount Everest is tall.” Lixian Hantover offers a profile of what the undersea cloud looks like and what its vulnerabilities are.
