John Garrett Posted over 3 years ago Which relevant/important events currently unfolding around the world are being ignored by the media? Why are they relevant? I'm no pollyanna, but we do have a hard time acknowledging monumentally good news, without looking for the crap that we believe has to be underneath it. Recent obvious example: the democratic revolution in Tunisia, Egypt, now Libya (if you predicted Libya, a gold star for you). Also as mentioned previously peaceful nation building transition in Southern Sudan. Earlier examples: peaceful transition in South Africa (still the most astounding story of the post WWII period), the amazing success of Cambodians, Laotians and especially Vietnamese in the US, our integration of so many cultures and nations generally (far from perfect, but nowhere else does this happen). Just spent some days at a waterpark with my kids: 60% anglo, the rest from everywhere, who noticed?
