1. In recent years we have seen what is veritably an
explosion of productions in the political documentary
genre. Documentaries such as McLible, Supersize Me and The
Corporation have attempted to increase social awareness of
corporations' unethical conduct. Other documentaries such as Fahrenheit 911, Outfoxed, The World According to Bush, and many others (such as the latest release, Truth, Lies & Intelligence) have focused closely on the unethical conduct of the right wing Christian West and various forms of propaganda involved in sustaining war in the Middle East. Documentaries such as Jenin, Jenin, Gaza Strip, Peace
Propaganda and the Promised Land and the upcoming Paradise
Behind Bars (see Najwa Saad's article in Nebula 2.1) are
shedding much needed light on what has been, until very
recently, an extremely one-sided affair in western media -
the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, of course. Documentaries
such as I Exist and Dangerous Living are the first of their
kind, bringing the persecution of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered minority groups in the Middle East to the
public front, for the first time.
These documentaries are not only valuable in the humanist
insight they provide but also in the evidence-based approach they undertake. Nebula is looking for reviewers who will engage thoroughly and thoughtfully with the material abovementioned, whether focusing on one documentary or several in one group, we are looking for articles and reviews which discuss the relevance of these insightful documentaries in a world which does not seem to prize facts too greatly.
2.Some Pandemic World Problems Have Viable Solutions.
Poverty and Starvation
Third World Worker Exploitation
Third World Epidemics
All Military Conquests
Nebula is dedicated to the humanist search for a better and
more equitable world. Viable solutions to major world
problems exist and these can be implemented, regardless of
cynicism or the pseudo-Darwinian rhetoric of those who
benefit from imbalances of power. Nebula is aiming to
provide a world-wide forum for intellectuals, tradespeople,
scientists, mathematicians, builders, artists, visionaries,
inventors, capitalists etc. to explore issues of global
importance. We hope to provide a gravitational centre for
contributors who share a common desire to kerb anti-humanist forces in the world and to reduce their extensive and pandemic effect on the institutionally powerless.
We invite contributions that are genuinely engaged (beyond
political partisanship) in the problem of human-induced,
world-scale catastrophes and atrocities. We encourage
logical and sound argumentation. We are looking for
practical solutions beyond simple propagandism. We might
begin here by being heavily theoretical, in the hope that
whatever we build in terms of insights and resolutions will
be of benefit to current and future generations.
