There ain’t no such thing as a free launch..
Our platform is free but not free to operate. We want to be inclusive and give a chance for everyone to join and benefit from our programs, capacity-building initiatives, information, and networking opportunities. Please, consider donating to support our digital environment. The benefits are here for you, as a concerned citizen, to enjoy.
Since 2014, we embarked on the task to unite professionals in the field of military, defense, law enforcement, and security. We want to keep it that way.
Our mission is simple yet complex. We want to strengthen public security and advance national, regional, and international cooperation across the public sector, the private sector, and civil society. We are tapping into a niche that is very much needed. For us, it matters to secure the most fundamental rights of human beings across borders. We work based on common interests regardless of which country, culture, religion, and ethnicity you identify with.
The world is an intricate web of interests. The only constant we continue to see changes. As such, it is logical to remain open to doubt by maintaining a state of malleability.
It is much easier to challenge those we consider “enemies” than our own friends. We should doubt what politicians tell us, because as humans and thus fallible and driven by personal ambition over public service. We should challenge media messages as they come biased from those who own the outlets. We should doubt social media as such platforms are susceptible to manipulation.
It is more advantageous to remain in a state of openness, commitment, and willingness to keep learning. Be part of this process, and doubt the lessons that you have previously been taught.
