About / Comment Policy

Mission

The purpose of Global Geopolitics is to present impactful and up-to-date geopolitical developments to the reader that has affected, or will affect our daily lives.

Global Geopolitics serves and operates in a geopolitical information aggregate capacity that not only keeps you up to date with the most recent salient developments, but shows you a trend over time through the history of specific categories. For example, cyber warfare. As trends develop, the reader gets an overview of the current situation and can anticipate where/what events are leading to based upon previous news postings in each category that are added to that same category throughout time.

Additionally, being that geopolitics is multidisciplinary in its scope, Global Geopolitics will place focus on presenting you information regarding events in disciplines such as economics, finance, military, national security, terrorism, regional politics, international relations and religion with additional commentary/analysis from time to time.

All posts are brought forth with pragmatic and fact-based intention. You’re not being shown what you want to hear. You’re being shown what’s actually happening.

Comment policy

In managing this site, it will be attempted to do so with a just and even hand. Free speech and expression in a classical liberal sense is encouraged. However, they are not unrestricted:

  • No anti-Semitism
  • No racial slurs or supremacy notions
  • No propagandizing by agenda-driven adherents
  • No profanity
  • No ad hominem attacks
  • No armed rebellion notions
  • No New World Order (NWO) Conspiracy “Theory-ism”
  • No random hyperlinks or posts with only a hyperlink lacking a comment in addition
  • No advertising the sale of a product or service
  • No comments with few or little words of no value to a discussion

If your comment never saw a green light, it likely violated one or more of the requirements.

Global Geopolitics welcomes all commentary so long as it is constructive, not disruptive. Free speech, but not a free-for-all.

Your meaningful participation is welcome.

Thank you for stopping by.

    • Hi Craig,

      The color scheme is likely to stick around for a while. It looks crisp and clear from a few different computers where posts are made from. Please check your monitor settings. Thanks for stopping by.

    • This might disappoint you, but no. However, it’s highly appreciated that someone on Fark has taken his or her time to recognize this site and seek out more info than what the “msm” tells them. Thanks for the comment, stopping by and feel free to come back again.

  3. Dear colleagues,

    I was following closely your interesting website and I saw an opportunity for you and I.
    Two years ago, I created a website with university colleagues called YoungDiplomats.
    YoungDiplomats is a webzine discussing international Relations and International Affairs from a fresh and young perspective. We currently have around 60,000 unique visitors a month and an App that has been downloaded 10,000 with 98% positive reviews.

    We are based in France with a team of 10 writers around the world. Because we write about the same subjects we do think we could mutually benefit from a partnership

    We would like to propose you a partnership that could be mutually beneficial. We could publish one article per week on your website and we would publish an article per week on our website. This would create backlinks and seriously improve our ranking on google and more important, grow our audience and our traffic. We would also be glad to re-publish more of your articles, we are even ready to give you a section in our webzine and be partners.
    Let us know if you would be interested.

    Best Regards,
    David Allouche
    Marketing Director at http://www.young-diplomats.com

    • Hi David,

      Thanks for the message.

      At the moment, Global Geopolitics isn’t looking for guest writers, but in the future that could change.

      If you’d like, you’re more than welcome to link to any of the articles on this site and if an article on your site is really interesting I also wouldn’t mind featuring it here, if possible. Adding you to the page of links on Global Geopolitics is also possible if you’d like to do the same for this website. You have a nice site, by the way.

      Thanks again.

  4. This is more of a question concerning the comments policy. I wrote a book. As part of my marketing efforts, I am now writing a blog. But the topics of the blog are taking off on their own. So I expect the blog to go on for the long run. Since both the book and the blog focus on geopolitics, would it agree with your comments policy if I posted a link to my blog here, or if I would link to one of my articles in my WP blog?

    Thanks,

    Daniel.

    • Hey Dan,

      Thanks for stopping by and your question/compliment.

      Linking your blog should be no problem so long as it contains relevant commentary that actually builds discussion and brings something to the reader. The link itself should also lead to material that falls within the same guidelines.

      So, no blind advertising per se. The ‘advertising’, for lack of a better term at the moment, should be information itself and how it’s conveyed to the reader. Some people in the past have commented with only a random link as if it were a sign that said “look at me.”, which brings nothing qualitative to the table. Comments like this, after a pattern is established, lead the commentator to be placed in the spam filter, permanently.

      This isn’t to discourage commentary, but to encourage it in a meaningful and qualitative way. Global Geopolitics keeps the bar high for this reason.

      After all is said and done, there is definitely no problem in linking if the guidelines are followed.

      Thanks again, congrats on your book and good luck on your blog!
