A good case doesn't need spin | Wendy M Grossman 4.3.2010 The Guardian -- World Latest
Spin in the service of a worthy cause is likely, ultimately, to do that cause more harm than good The question: Can spin ever be justified? When I founded The Skeptic , we were mostly interested in paranormal claims. For example, the kind of "spin" that has a former stage magician claiming he can move an empty, plastic vial a half an inch using only the power of his mind. I hate fakery for the same reason Simon Hoggart once gave: it's a background noise interfering with the truth. I hate ill-founded alternative medical claims for the more practical reason that they're playing with people's lives. But even more than either I have come to hate science fraud, probably in the same way that moderate Christians hate TV evangelists or faith ...

After Copenhagen: How Can We Move Forward? 4.3.2010 Commondreams.org Views
by Tom Athanasiou

Or that, as is the new fashion, China was the ugliest of them all. I will not say that the South's negotiators made impossible demands. Or argue that the United Nations' process is unwieldy and obsolete. I will not claim that only domestic US action really matters.

The Asian way of handling the world | Simon Chesterman and Kishore Mahbubani 4.3.2010 The Guardian -- World Latest
The pragmatic Asian approach to international affairs offers a fresh, constructive way of dealing with a variety of challenges Is there an "Asian way" to resolving global challenges? The conventional answer is no. But elements of an Asian way are gradually emerging. Given Asia's growing influence, the world should pay attention – and may have much to gain. The key to understanding Asian approaches is their pragmatism. Asians constantly adapt and change. In the past, Asians put a premium on protecting their sovereignty and were wary of any multilateral approaches that could dilute it. Now, in response to global challenges – for example pandemics, financial crises and climate change – the vast majority of Asian countries understand ...
