thank you for stopping by and visiting this website!
Synglobe is a website about culture, politics, current events and curious facts, with a special focus on East Asia. I hope to provide thought-provoking and entertaining articles for people who want to look at the world from a different perspective.
The title of the website, from ‘syn’ (Greek for ‘with’) and ‘globe’, reflects my interest in international affairs, which stems from the years I spent in Italy, Germany, Greece, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
I have been called by some a ‘leftist’, but I don’t consider myself one. I believe in economic pragmatism, international co-operation, multiculturalism, tolerance, and humanity, and my values will transpire in my posts. If you have other political and ethical beliefs, please don’t spend too much time ranting and venting your anger on this website, there are many other places on the web where you can find like-minded people.
Feel free to comment and share your views, in a civil and respectful way. If you like some of my posts, please support this website by sharing them or send me a small donation (thank you!).
If you have suggestions or want to contribute to my website, please go to my contact page and send me an e-mail.
Apart from synglobe.com, I also started a website that focuses on Chinese culture, history and society: china-journal.org.
Thank you and I wish you a happy reading!
