Klipsun Magazine

Past. Present. Future.

This phrase has a different meaning to everyone. My history dates back 22 years. Klipsun is more than 50 years old. And a few stories in this magazine are about artifacts dating back hundreds of years.

No matter what this phrase means to you, we all have history. Some of us want to never look back and just continue forward to see what our future entails. I personally am terrified of my future and seem to rely heavily on my past. An unfamiliar future scares me, while a past of familiarity comforts me.

For many, reading historical ...

Summertime is a favorite season for so many, but with college over, it takes on an entirely different meaning to me and many others in my same position. Now it means 18 years of education is over. Hot days are spent trapped inside a cubicle glued to a computer screen instead of basking in the sun. Long summer nights are no longer an option now that I am up at 6, and moving back to Bellingham in September is not on my calendar anymore.

Nothing will ever compare to these past four years. My only regret is that I never ...

I started thinking about this note the minute I became Editor-in-Chief, but here I am, minutes before deadline not knowing what to write. An elite group of people has come before me and they all seemed to have something profound to say. So, I went where I always go when I need inspiration — my friends. The most eloquent person I know, had this quote from the movie “Serendipity” on his Facebook profile: “The Greeks didn’t write obituaries. They only ask one question after a man died: ‘Did he have passion?’”

This sparked my interest. In the beginning, it didn ...

I’ll be honest. The first quarter I wrote for a publication, I was intimidated by the editors. They seemed so much older, wiser and more experienced than me. It took me a while to have confidence in myself and my abilities, but now here I am an editor.

Many of the people in this issue also have found their confidence, and they are accomplishing amazing things. Unintentionally, this issue features many women and coincides with Women’s History Month. The women at Femeninete are producing heartfelt, poignant pieces about what it means to be a woman. Kelly Hill is ...


Is Democracy Promotion A Cure For Ending Terrorism?, Zachary R. Snyder Jan 2007

Is Democracy Promotion A Cure For Ending Terrorism?, Zachary R. Snyder

The Hoover Prize

The assumption that democracy is a force that impedes terrorism is a commonly held belief by the Bush administration. Current policies that shape the War on Terror attest to this assumption. A pivotal theme of the current War on Terror dictates that imposing democracy in former autocracies such as Afghanistan and Iraq will rid that state of terrorist activities. Mr. Bush, when defending U.S. military presence in the Arab world, said that the United States is “engaged in a generational challenge to instill democracy”. A fruitful democracy in Arab countries is assumed to spread American values in order to ...
