This month’s Gordian Magazine marks the end of volume 6 in which we covered various aspects of justice and its relationship to law enforcement. 

Meet The New Lady Justice

The Gordian Magazine, issue 1, volume 6

In issue one, we critised the traditional image of lady justice. Her blindfold is supposed to symbolise impartiality, however, one cannot help comparing the blindfold to that of “blind” Fortune, whose largess is purely random. How else can there be so much injustice in the world? We said no more and introduced our readers to a new Lady Justice.

Appeasement: Is history repeating itself so soon?

In keeping with our theme, issue two, focused on appeasement and how it is like forfeiting somebody else’s justice. 

EU’s Struggle with Justice: Is the Cart Before the Horse?

In Issue three, we talked about justice across the European block. Though the organisation is a remarkable institution, its callous exclusivity has risked making it a gentlemen’s club, whose head is very much up its own backside. 

Off with the head! Getting Rid of Phoney Justice

In issue four, we focused on justice and punishment, including those phoney ones imposed on the guilty with little or no respect for their welfare and human right.

Dismantling the war machine

In the fifth issue, we wrote about the futility of war and how to make it redundant. People and nations may disagree, and they may commit crimes, but these antagonisms can be resolved in countless ways. War should never be an option. 

Enough is Enough: Time to Enforce Justice

The main theme of this volume is still justice, but we will also focus on a fight for justice that is unfolding in front of our eyes. Despite the brutality of the security forces in Iran, protests continue to thrive and grow. The courage and defiance of women is inspiring, and their determination to stand up for their rights is a testament to their strength and resilience.

New series on Utopia 

An ideal society is like a magnificent temple, but temples cannot be built without vision, without plans, without resolve. 

So what would your ideal world look like? UN-aligned would like to tweak its vision for the future with the support of its members and it will be launching a monthly series within The Gordian, which it hopes to publish as an individual work in the future. 

Your contribution can be a few paragraphs long or a few pages and you are welcome to discuss your ideas with one of our editors.

Be heard and help inspire a better world!

Take ownership of UN-aligned

Unlike most organisations, UN-aligned is, primarily, its members. We are the New United Nations and though just a drop in the ocean, for now, we will carry on growing until we will become a force to be reckoned with!The more of us there are, the more chance we have of achieving our aims. Help us by promoting membership to you friends or to people you think have similar values. If every member added another, membership would snowball and we would be unstoppable!We also need active members: people who roll up their sleeves and contribute to the work of the organisation. Some already have, for instance, by writing articles for The Gordian, or offering to help with proofreading.

No matter what you can do, we want you. Write to us with your talents and we’ll make it work.

Raising Utopia: Brick by Brick

In this first issue of our new Utopia series, we will be focusing on world peace and democracy. Our main article is a quirky piece which postulates an interview with the representative of a more advanced civilisation; and within this setting, novel visions are juxtaposed to some of our pressing problems. Of course, our coverage does not end here. The January issue offers a wide number of insightful articles by Lukas Pfluger, Dinojah Patkunarajah, Partho and Pradeep Chatteree, Elvira Ineza, Omar Alansari-Kreger, Joe Wain as well as our literary article by Alex Liberto and our art piece by Carla Pietrobattista. The editors are Adrian Liberto and Ariana Yekrangi
