Why do We Love? Sebuah Pertentangan Makna Cinta Selama Berabad-Abad

Source: static.independent.co.uk
Cinta, indah dan menghayutkan, terkadang menyedihkan atau bahkan semua rasa itu tumbuh menjadi satu. Kenapa kita mempertaruhkan diri kita kedalam ke dalam pergumulan emosi yang rumit ini ? Apakah cinta membuat hidup kita lebih bermakna? Menjadi pelarian dari rasa sepi dan derita? menjadi pelampiasan hasrat seksual? Atau hal yang natural bagi kita sebagai spesies untuk memiliki keturunan?
Apabila Cinta memiliki suatu tujuan? Baik ilmuan biologi atau psikolog belum mendapatkan alasan-alasan yang meyakinkan. Akan tetapi, selama ratusan tahun peradaban manusia, para filsuf memiliki pemahama yang menarik dan mendalam.

Konflik Timur Tengah: Pembenaran Demi Tegaknya "Demokrasi dan HAM"

Konflik Timur Tengah: Pembenaran Demi Tegaknya "Demokrasi dan HAM"
Konflik di Timur Tengah yang berkepanjangan sejak Perang Dunia II hingga Perang Sipil di Suriah tentu menimbulkan pertanyaan kenapa konflik-konflik tersebut terus terjadi dari satu Negara ke Negara lainnya di Timur Tengah. Dalih membela Demokrasi dan HAM menjadi alasan Negara-negara Barat (Amerika Serikat dan Negara Sekutunya) terus menginvasi Timur Tengah. Namun, apakah pantas apabila Demokrasi dan HAM yang dijunjung tinggi tersebut dibela dengan Senapan, Tank dan Pesawat Tempur ? Tentu ada alasan lain dibalik alasan Demokrasi dan HAM. Proyek Pembangunan Israel Raya dan penguasaan Energi Fosil kini seolah menjadi alasan yang tidak bisa lagi ditutupi oleh Amerika Serikat dan Negara Sekutunya. Namun, kenapa Rakyat Amerika Serikat atau Negara-negara Barat lainnya seolah bungkam terhadap aksi Invasi tersebut ? lalu kenapa publik selalu memberikan dukungan atas aksi tersebut ?
