This chapter reviews letters from the twenty-first century. It explains how the letters covered a scattered number of familiar issues, such as mindsets in science, arguments over Alternative Dispute Resolution mediation, and the need to regulate family law mediators. It also discusses a short letter from an eighty-five-year old Californian farmer, George Woegell, on the male proclivity to go to war. The chapter analyzes letters on war and violence, such as the United States' prolonged wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It looks at other letters about the continued conflict in Israel and Palestine, jihadism, terrorism, anthropology and militarism, silencing, and the role of politics and its problems in a globalized world in search of “modernity.”

Keywords:   letters, Alternative Dispute Resolution, correspondence, conflict, George Woegell, mindsets in science, family law mediators, war
