IN MEMORIAM: Hemn Hawez Hamadamin

Hemn Hawez HamadaminHemn Hawez Hamadamin

I pause in honor of the life and memory Hemn Hawez Hamadamin of Khdran, Sulaimani, who was martyred on January 30, 2015, from wounds he received in battle four days earlier in Mala-Abdulla on the outskirts of Kirkuk, Iraqi Kurdistan. He was martyred along with 1400 other courageous Peshmerga (Kurdish army) fighters as they battled to drive ISIS out of Kirkuk.

My very good friend, Saman Ali, Hamadamin’s uncle, whom I befriended recently, informed me of his family’s loss. Hamadamin is certainly honored for his valiant efforts in fighting for the noble cause of freedom and against a brutal, inhuman, and maniacally murderous enemy of all decent people.

I pause, as well, to consider that Hemn Hawez Hamadamin, his comrades, and all who give their lives for the just cause of freedom should stand as a source of pride for all people who desire to live according to the dictates of their own conscience.

The noble Hamadamin was born on 2 May,1982, and joined the Peshmerga in 1998. Saman relates that he was a good, witty, and fun-loving man. He leaves behind in this life his three beautiful children and his mother.

May he rest in peace, and may the kurds be victorious.

IN YOUR NAME: Guantánamo torturer led brutal Chicago regime of shackling and confession

The Guardian this morning has given us more to add to America’s shameful legacy. I post this because it could not be more antithetical to Human decency and empathy (short of ISIL and their ilk, of course). This is what our government became, in your name, and too much of it remains. I am going to establish a Hall of Dishonor and Shame and call for nominees.

A Chicago detective who led one of the most shocking acts of torture ever conducted at Guantánamo Bay was responsible for implementing a disturbingly similar, years-long regime of brutality to elicit murder confessions from minority Americans.


Max T. Furr is author of The Empathy Imperative, a hard-hitting, philosophical novel on the nature of justice and mercy and why we don’t have it.

RSA Animate – The Power of Outrospection

I have only one comment on this wonderful video. Introspection is still necessary, but I like the Outrospection (I would call it, “exospection”) concept as an incorporation to the overall empathy message. I think one’s motivations need an occasional house-cleaning.
