Fair Observer Monthly: November 2023





Fair Observer Monthly is a chance for you to sit down, look back and think about the month past. A month lasts 28 to 31 days, a suitably appropriate time to take stock of the world. We publish daily on our website and we select some of our best articles every month in our e-magazine. We will give you context and multiple perspectives on issues that matter. We will inform and educate you. Fair Observer Monthly does what we promise: make sense of the world.

November has been a month of reflection. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi looks back on a year of India’s G20 presidency. Scientist Karin Schmalz looks at the deep roots of Brazil’s anti-democracy movement. Edgar Jones compares the conflict in Ukraine with past wars to shed light on how soldiers experience combat psychologically. Andy Norman reminds us to be mindful of our own ideas and use responsible thinking when we reflect on anything.

This month, a ferocious war broke out between Hamas and Israel. Fair Observer has published many perspectives on this war. Emir Hadzikadunic and Josef Olmert present differing prognoses for the ongoing conflict. Leonard Weinberg explains the psychology behind Hamas’s brutal October 7 attack on Israeli civilians. Srijan Sharma discusses how prejudicial thinking led to the monumental failure of Israeli intelligence to anticipate the attack. Ranjani Iyer Mohanty advises us to be thoughtful and not to rush to judgment when assigning guilt in this war.

This month, Argentina had a historic election in which the populist eccentric Javier Milei triumphed. Leonardo Vivas helps us understand why Argentinians turned to Milei. Scott Bennett looks forward to next November, when an independent candidate, Bobby Kennedy Jr., may win the US presidential election.
