About Richard N Salvador
I am a political junkie. I read news about politics from around the world and spend time thinking about politics and what potential political communities might allow people to live in peace, what are the conditions under which such communities might exist, etc, etc. I am also interested in the Pacific Ocean area and the islands, peoples, and cultures there including the economic and political systems that characterize the place. I am hopeful, optimistic, and long for nations and politicians to do the right thing so that the rest of us might have a chance to fulfill our destinies. Other than that, I am a simple person. I am a minimalist in all that it implies. Saying less but doing more to help the most people inspire me. I can survive in the barest landscape, requiring only basic food and water to survive. I believe that fruits and vegetables and maybe a little fish are all that we need to live on. We need not butcher animals to feed ourselves. There are endless plant sources of protein and we can live and save the environment at the same time. I require no luxuries to exist. Stories of great women and men who succeed at great odds inspire me. Spirituality and various traditions and rituals of spirituality wherein women and men around the world have sought connections to the Divine inspire me as well. I don’t know if there is a God but if there is, I find myself constantly seeking to know her and hope that one day she will reveal herself to me. I tend to shy away from open and bold discussions about God or religious experiences, preferring quiet reflections about the divine potential we each have and what we can do to assist our fellow women and men. I do not proclaim confident certainties about God and which varieties of spiritual experience are more or less important. I prefer that spirituality remain a private experience with one’s Maker, according to how she or he sees it. Spirituality and Faith are vital, but when in comes to matters of Politics and faith, I am a Libertarian in the truest sense. I subscribe to these articles of faith:
1) I claim the privilege of worshiping God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all women and men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may;
2) I believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law, provided the law(s) must be just and based on principles of equality, fairness, and respect for all women and men;
3) I believe in being honest, true, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all persons.
How did I not know about this blog… *sigh* I’ve admired your writing since the early days of the Bridge List and glad to know I can still find you online. Cheers to you!
Alii Sha, is your radio station going to open soon? I still do not know how to listen live. Everyone I try to log on to the live stream, there’s always problem. Sorry to ask you this since it may be a competition for your station, but do you know if we can actually listen to T8AA online too? If so, how? I always have trouble logging on and wonder if it does actually stream online. No worries, I will always come back to PalauWaveradio. Thanks for your help. richard salvador
Our live broadcasts are most limited to the weekly press conference with the Office of the President, or by request of our talk show hosts. Otherwise, we keep it to podcasts. The station is only on-air from 6am-12am, so sometimes the programming is out of sorts with off-island schedules. With podcasts, we can make sure everyone with internet access has a chance to hear the programming.
