Ved Nanda, Director of the Ved Nanda Center for International and Comparative Law at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law: I still vividly recall the day in early August 1947, a few days before the independence and partition of India and the birth of Pakistan, when my mother and I had to flee for our lives. Gujranwala was majority Muslim, with a sizeable population of Hindus and Sikhs at that time, and the communities lived peacefully, participating in each other’s social, cultural and religious lives. But all that changed in a hurry. A Muslim friend advised us: "Leave now, leave immediately. Save your lives." On the 70th anniversary of India’s partition, it is perhaps this experience which has given me the lifelong purpose to work for peace and human rights, especially for refugees.

Paul Driessen, CFACT, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow: People have been leaving Guatemala and heading to the United States for years, because this poor Central American country has too few good jobs. So after Tahoe Resources bought the mine in 2010 and created 7,600 direct and indirect jobs, a radical anti-mining cabal led by Oxfam America naturally launched an often-nasty campaign to shut it down … and send the families back into joblessness and poverty. The real powers, strategists and funding sources are Oxfam , the Moriah Fund, Fund for Global Human Rights, European Union … and United Nations Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture!

Maurice Allais, Nobel Prize in Economics, 1988, Memorium by Marjorie Mazel Hecht: French thinker Maurice Allais, who died Oct. 9, 2010, is alone among the Nobel Laureates in economics in making the general welfare, and physical reality, central to his economic theories. For this he deserves our thanks. But Professor Allais was more than just an economist; he wrote many books and papers on history, both ancient and modern, and on various political systems.

Paul Driessen, Senior Policy Analyst, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow: It’s amazing how we are bombarded by accusations that our technologies and living standards offend basic principles of fair trade, human rights, sustainable development and social justice. Except, it seems, when the technologies are electric vehicles, wind turbines, solar cells, cell phones and other gadgets so beloved by progressives and environmentalists. ... Where are the demands for justice, the student protests, sit-ins and boycotts against Nokia, Apple, Vestas and Tesla? Why are Fair Trade and Living Wage activists not speaking out on behalf of rare earth workers in Baotou, Inner Mongolia – or parents and children mining cobalt and lithium under even more horrendous conditions in Congo?
