As I pick up this pen...
It was November 2008 when I first took up blogging in this space, right after Sen. Barrack Obama's election as America's 44th president.
How times have changed.
We now are witnessing the dawn of a new era in America, and the world undoubtedly.
The election of Donald J. Trump to succeed Mr. Obama heralds a new direction for America.
From an outward-looking, open, diverse, collaborative, and multilateralist polity, to one that would have an inward-looking, isolationist, and competitive/winner-take-all mentality.
It comes on the heels of the Brexit vote in the UK and the rise of far-right parties in Western Europe.
Having taken a break from blogging in the past two years, I feel the need to start writing again.
Now more than ever, the need to find new, better ideas to deal with complex, long-standing problems is emerging.
