In the state of nature, natural law governs behavior, and each person has license to execute that law against someone who wrongs them by infringing on their rights. People take what they need from the earth, but hoard just enough to cover their needs. Eventually, people begin to trade their excess goods with each other, until they develop a common currency for barter, or money.

The Manifesto of the Communist Party was drafted as its party program by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels in Brussels at the order of the second congress of the League of Communists (December 2-8, 1847) The Manifesto marked the end of a year-long discussion within the League of the Just about the objectives and methods of proletarian emancipation and implied the conclusion of its transformation into the League of Communists. In Marxist literature this publication, which marked a milestone in the theoretical evolution of Marx and Engels and reflected the crucial principles of their world view in a relatively self-contained and complete form, is held to be the birth certificate of scientific socialism, which was fundamentally distinct from utopian socialism. Brought into its final version by Marx, it undoubtedly was the most brilliant and widely read writing of Marx and Engels; thanks to its down-to-earth analysis of society with its concise and cogent portrayal of a humanizing-liberating perspective for workers and the urgent demands for a revolutionary transformation of society. It was the most effective and most widely read publication of the modern working-class movement.

Children Who Changed the World   What do Malala Yousafzai and Anne Frank have in common? Both opened the eyes of the world to the injustice done to them as children. Malala deliberately set out to fight for her right to education. While Anne Frank unwittingly became a symbol of the effect of war on the lives of children. Children Who Changed the World, tells the stories of more than twenty children who have opened the world’s eyes to serious problems in society, and who have contributed to the solution. As children, they have changed our world for the better.   Children like Iqbal Masih, Andrew Adansi, Ishmael Beah, Urmila Chaudhary and Nujood Ali spoke out against child labour, discrimination, child marriage, poverty, exclusion from education, war, disease and hunger. They were listened to, despite - or perhaps because of - their young age. Kim Phuc, Ruby Bridges, Nkosi Johnson and Helen Keller did not accept their fate, they challenged it. Their perseverance is an inspiration to other children, as well as to adults.   Who are these children? What have they accomplished, what inspired them? What has the effect of their actions been, and what remains to be done? In Children Who Changed the World, we hear from the children themselves, many of them now adults. Their stories demonstrate that change is possible and it is worthwhile standing up against injustice – whether you are a child or an adult. That is the lesson they have taught us. Children Who Changed the World is published as an ebook in English to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child on 20 November 2014, as an initiative of the publisher and all the people who participated in producing this publication.

It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.

The law is the witness and external deposit of our moral life. Its history is the history of the moral development of the race. The practice of it, in spite of popular jests, tends to make good citizens and good men. When I emphasize the difference between law and morals I do so with reference to a single end, that of learning and understanding the law.

Thomas Paine (1737-1809) was an English pamphleteer, revolutionary, radical, inventor, and intellectual. He lived and worked in Britain until age 37, when he emigrated to the British American colonies, in time to participate in the American Revolution. His principal contribution was the powerful, widely-read pamphlet Common Sense (1776), advocating colonial America's independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain, and The American Crisis (1776- 1783), a pro-revolutionary pamphlet series. Later, he greatly influenced the French Revolution. He wrote the Rights of Man (1791), a guide to Enlightenment ideas. Despite not speaking French, he was elected to the French National Convention in 1792. The Girondists regarded him as an ally, so, the Montagnards, especially Robespierre, regarded him as an enemy. In December of 1793, he was arrested and imprisoned in Paris, then released in 1794. He became notorious because of The Age of Reason (1793-94), the book advocating deism and arguing against Christian doctrines. In France, he also wrote the pamphlet Agrarian Justice (1795), discussing the origins of property, and introduced the concept of a guaranteed minimum income.

This long essay is the second part of a series, with the first part being “USA Russia & China in the Middle East: Alliances & Conflicts”. Over 80 maps are used to explain the energy war between Russia and Turkey, two countries that have been fighting for regional dominance for many centuries. Today, the main geographical locations of their conflicts are the regions of Central Asia and East Mediterranean Sea. Both Central Asia and the East Mediterranean Sea are of strategic importance for the connection of Europe to the oil and natural gas reserves of the Caspian Sea and the Middle East. This essay examines in great detail the relations of both Russia and Turkey with the countries of these regions.

Seller: Springer Nature B.V.

The main objective of this book is to develop a strategy and policy measures to enhance the formalization of the shadow economy in order to improve the competitiveness of the economy and contribute to economic growth; it explores these issues with special reference to Serbia. The size and development of the shadow economy in Serbia and other Central and Eastern European countries are estimated using two different methods (the MIMIC method and household-tax-compliance method). Micro-estimates are based on a special survey of business entities in Serbia, which for the first time allows us to explore the shadow economy from the perspective of enterprises and entrepreneurs. The authors identify the types of shadow economy at work in business entities, the determinants of shadow economy participation, and the impact of competition from the informal sector on businesses. Readers will learn both about the potential fiscal effects of reducing the shadow economy to the levels observed in more developed countries and the effects that formalization of the shadow economy can have on economic growth.

A short history shows the sheer difficulty of genuine electoral reform. The defeat of democracy is also a defeat for science. Freedom and knowledge depend on each other. Therein is the remedy. I base voting method on a widely accepted logic of measurement, to be found in the sciences. This is supported by reflections on the philosophy of science. The more familiar approach, of judging voting methods by (questionable) selections of basic rules or criteria, is critically examined. Political and academic justifications, for the world anarchy of voting methods, are refuted by a statistical understanding of elections as generally giving more or less probable results, for which social choice theory requirement of absolute certainty, in all cases, is not appropriate. Official reports of British commissions on election systems are assessed. These reports are of Plant, Jenkins, Kerley, Sunderland, Arbuthnott, Richard, and (Helena Kennedy) Power report. Two great pioneers of electoral reform are represented here, in speeches (also letters) of John Stuart Mill on parliamentary reform (obtained from Hansard on-line). And there is commentary and bibliography of HG Wells on proportional representation (mainly). This author is a researcher, as well as a reformer, and my innovations of Binomial STV and the Harmonic Mean quota are explained. Compared to my first book on electoral reform, this second book has more emphasis on electoral research, to progress freedom thru knowledge. (The previous book, Peace-making Power-sharing, had a last chapter, in French, which is the earliest surviving version of the foundation of this sequel, Scientific Method of Elections.)

Publisher: Donald R. Miklich
Seller: Smashwords, Inc.

This essay is a non-economists’ (there’s not a bit of math in it) inquiry into the US employment losses which have been happening for about a half century. Businesses have been reducing workers and their pay in order to increase shareholder profits. Many ways have been used to do this, but more and more computers and robotics are replacing workers. Well informed economists fear that in a decade or two such automation may eliminate almost half of US jobs! The worker reduction practice has been justified by economic theory which claims (though with dubious supporting evidence) that it maximizes productivity. This book argues that, even if this claim is correct, the practice damages the economy and the nation. Our economy is already massively productive, abundantly supplying our needs and desires. As the book title implies, no one needs nor wants such totally superfluous things as 1001 sex positions. Therefore, for the highly productive US economy to focus on more productivity is neither useful nor reasonable. The enormous US economy can provide a sufficiency for everyone, but only if everyone has a means of purchasing what is produced. To do this Americans need and want jobs and income. By diminishing workers’ incomes, and especially by diminishing the number of workers, this profits/productivity emphasis reduces consumer demand, thereby damaging the economy. Ultimately, and paradoxically, sacrificing jobs and incomes to increase productivity is self-defeating. Ultimately, job losses must diminish productivity simply because the workers who make things are also the consumers who buy them, and without jobs and income there will be no one to buy whatever is produced. Poorer workers weakens demand; fewer jobs destroys it. Continuing to place profits and productivity above workers threatens the possibility of an economic collapse worse than the 1930’s Great Depression. Yet no business dare not follow the jobs reductions practice since they might be driven out of business by competitors who do follow it. The economy therefore seems to be on the brink of a disaster. Some economists and others have suggested that, to prevent this, the government should give every citizen a minimal income; no questions asked; no work required. This essay gives several reasons why this suggestion is a bad idea. Instead it offers an idea for a program which will sustain jobs and worker income. If this idea can be developed and implemented it could help preserve the economy from the damage which the emphasis on profits and productivity has caused.

The ultimate goal of the policy should be the elimination of all nuclear weapons by every nation, including Israel, within ten years.Resolution of the existing crisis requires a clear understanding of the history of the Iranian people and the steps and missteps that have led to the crisis.

On September 21, 2011, David Roberts participated in The National Climate Seminar, a series of webinars sponsored by Bard College’s Center for Environmental Policy. The online seminars provide a forum for leading scientists, writers, and other experts to talk about critical issues regarding climate change. The series also opens a public conversation, inviting participants to ask questions and contribute their own thoughts. Roberts is a Senior Staff Writer at Grist, one of the web’s mpopular sites for environmental news and commentary, so he is distinctively qualified to discuss the relationship between global warming, politics, and the media. In his lecture, Roberts argued that environmentalists’ traditional criticism of climate change coverage—namely that journalists describe global warming as a debatable theory rather than as fact—is no longer the issue. Mmedia accept the reality of climate change—but it is treated as a specialty issue, rather than as a phenomenon that affects myriad aspects of life. The seminar focused on how to change that perception—how to make climate a backdrop to the political debates that affect real change. This E-ssentialis an edited version of Roberts’ talk and the subseququestion and answer session. While some material has been cut and some language modified for clarity, the intention was to retain the substance of the original discussion.

This book discuss about the Political things. A prose tract or polemic by John Milton, published November 23, 1644, at the height of the English Civil War… Milton, though a supporter of the Parliament, argued forcefully against the Licensing Order of 1643, noting that such censorship had never been a part of classical Greek and Roman society. The tract is full of biblical and classical references which Milton uses to strengthen his argument. The issue was personal for Milton as he had suffered censorship himself in his efforts to publish several tracts defending divorce (a radical stance at the time and one which met with no favor from the censors)… Areopagitica is among history’s most influential and impassioned philosophical defences of the principle of a right to free speech.

This study has been undertaken as the first ever joint research publication between defence institutions in Denmark and Pakistan. Given the development in international security politics in the last few years, it is fair to argue that both Denmark and Pakistan are at a point where future security challenges require a development of policies and strategies. Though the roles of Denmark and Pakistan respectively are different in nature, a lot of commonalities in conceptual thoughts and actions were found between the two countries at all levels. The book at hand gathers a number of lessons identified from Afghanistan and Pakistan with the objective of promoting sustainable regional peace building and developing military and civilian cooperation strategies for counterinsurgency and counterterrorism.

The global food system works only for the few – for most of us it is broken. It leaves the billions who consume food lacking sufficient power and knowledge about what they buy and eat, and the majority of small food producers dis-empowered and unable to fulfil their productive potential. The failure of the system flows from failures of government – failures to regulate, to correct, to protect, to resist, to invest – which mean that companies, interest groups, and elites are able to plunder resources and to redirect flows of finance, knowledge, and food.  Growing a Better Future describes a new age of growing crisis: food price spikes and oil price hikes, devastating weather events, financial meltdowns, and global contagion. It shows how the food system is at once a driver of this fragility and highly vulnerable to it, and why in the twenty-first century it leaves 925 million people hungry. Growing a Better Future supports a new campaign with a simple message: another future is possible and we can build it together. Over the coming years, decisive action around the world could enable hundreds of millions more people to feed their families and prevent catastrophic climate change from destroying their (and our) futures.  In this new enhanced edition, Oxfam adds video, papers and research which develop and update the main themes of the report: land, and the growing scandal surrounding the new wave of investments (‘land grabs’); how climate change is related to food security and the East African food crisis; and how people living in poverty around the world have coped with food price crises. There are also extended case studies from Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala, India, Malawi, and Nepal, and an extended and updated bibliography and resources list.

Beijing has sought to take a neutral stance in the stand-off between Russia and the West. Yet as the recent $400 billion Sino-Russian energy deal illustrates, China’s economic decisions will inevitably have major implications. The question is not whether Beijing will tilt definitively toward one or other party but the extent to which China will prove to be an enabling or a constraining factor for different facets of Western and Russian policy. In a crisis that has hinged to an unusual degree on trade deals, loans, energy exports, financial assets, and sanctions, the world’s second largest economy cannot avoid becoming politically embroiled.   In some areas, there are opportunities for the European Union, in cooperation with the United States, to leverage China’s growing geo-economic interest in Central and Eastern Europe, where Beijing and Moscow’s interests are far from identical. But the principal challenge will be navigating China’s role in mitigating the impact of Western sanctions on Russia. At present there is the risk that the EU and the United States will end up with the worst of all worlds: sanctions that are not strong enough to change Moscow’s behavior or to deter China from further military assertiveness in its own neighborhood, yet just potent enough to push Russia into a closer relationship with China, and to persuade Beijing that it needs to immunize itself against exposure to the Western financial system.

These killings and atrocities perpetrated by US-NATO sponsored death squads are casually blamed on the government with a view to justifying an R2P military intervention.

This book foresaw the “Arab Spring” of 2011. It was obvious years before that the old Arab nationalist dictatorships had failed and were being challenged by two forces: liberal democracy advocates and revolutionary Islamists. While the Long War for Freedom focuses on the moderates, it also, by necessity, presents the worldview and strategy of the Islamists. In brief, the book’s theme is that while the moderates were right about the direction the Arab world should take, that in no way meant they would win. On the contrary, while sympathetic with this group the book shows the many reasons they were poorly positioned to compete with the Islamists and thus the likelihood that the latter would provide the next wave of regimes in the Middle East. As far as I know, The Long War for Freedom is the only book that tries to present a comprehensive picture of the liberal reformist tendency, its arguments, and those of its adversaries. I’m particularly pleased with this book and its prophetic aspects and believe that it reads as very up-to-date a number of years after it was published by John Wiley Publishers in 2005.

Beyond the political typology it embodies, Syria also provides the best case study of what has happened in the Arab world, and thus in the Middle East, during the last half-century. When it gained independence, Syria was a democratic country with a seemingly bright future. Blessed with fertile land and ample resources, Syria boasted good relations with the West as well as an energetic, entrepreneurial middle class. Yet a combination of radical intellectuals, militant ideologies, and ambitiously politicized military officers pushed Syria down a different path which has led to turmoil and disaster.

Seller: Tharpa Publications USA

With this book the Western Shugden Society wishes that individual people around the world will use their influence to help millions of Buddhist practitioners who are presently suffering religious persecution instigated by the Dalai Lama of Tibet. For this reason we are making the e-book available at a complimentary price. We ask you to read this book and then ask the Dalai Lama to stop this persecution. For his own personal political ends the Dalai Lama is persecuting Buddhist people who practise the Buddhist Deity Dorje Shugden. Most people around the world believe that the Dalai Lama is a compassionate man of peace, but the hidden reality is that, because of the high regard in which the ancient title is held, the Dalai Lama is actually now a dictator who is systematically causing immense suffering to millions of innocent people throughout the world. His actions banning the practice of Dorje Shugden and persecuting practitioners blatantly contravene the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights on several counts. The book A Great Deception, published by the Western Shugden Society, is a revelation of the Dalai Lama’s great deceit. The purpose of the book is fourfold: To liberate from this persecution the millions of innocent Buddhist practitioners of the Deity Dorje Shugden, and their families; To restore peace and harmony between Shugden and non-Shugden practitioners within Buddhist communities world-wide; To re-establish the common spiritual activities of all Shugden and non-Shugden practitioners; and to free Buddhism from political pollution. May we encourage you to come to understand the real nature of the Dalai Lama of Tibet by reading this book A Great Deception. We believe that with this understanding you will be able to support the innocent people presently experiencing his persecution.

The evolution of dictatorship is as much a part of history as the development of democracy. In our ear persuasion has become as powerful a force as repression in creating and maintaining such regimes. Debates over the nature of these systems are at the center of the contemporary U.S. and European foreign policy debates. The flourishing of dictatorship has challenged views of history flavored with optimism and based on a deterministic view that material development brings political progress. At the same time a vision of the world too narrowly focused on the conflict between communism and capitalism must be refocused to understand the emergence of a third World. In fact, it is impossible to defend the West without such an understanding. Our current discussion of dictatorship, much influenced by earlier analyses of “totalitarianism” based on Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s Russia at their peak of control and repression, needs to be updated. This model applies only imperfectly to contemporary dictatorships, particularly those in the Third World.

Paying for the boomers retirement will cost an additional 10% of GDP, the equivalent our current spending on the military, public education, and all colleges and universities. This is an enormous sum, but most boomers have not saved enough to support themselves. Instead they are depending on governments that are in even worse financial shape.

The present volume contains the six metrical tales which were composed within the years 1812 and 1815, the Hebrew Melodies, and the minor poems of 1809-1816. With the exception of the first fifteen poems (1809-1811)—Chansons de Voyage, as they might be called—the volume as a whole was produced on English soil. Beginning with the Giaour; which followed in the wake of Childe Harold and shared its triumph, and ending with the ill-omened Domestic Pieces, or Poems of the Separation, the poems which Byron wrote in his own country synchronize with his popularity as a poet by the acclaim and suffrages of his own countrymen. His greatest work, by which his lasting fame has been established, and by which his relative merits as a great poet will be judged in the future, was yet to come; but the work which made his name, which is stamped with his sign-manual, and which has come to be regarded as distinctively and characteristically Byronic, preceded maturity and achievement.

In this groundbreaking collection, nine of Russia's leading scholars and experts describe and analyze some of the Vladimir Putin regime’s key structural strengths and weaknesses and look at their implications for both the present and the future. As far as the regime’s fault lines are concerned, the evidence presented by the authors shows no reversal, or even narrowing, of these structural dysfunctions in Putin’s third presidential term.  Topics covered here include Russia's political economy, political geography, and politics of federalism; the regime, ideology, public opinion, and legitimacy; and potential defeat and radicalization of civil society. Emerging in these pages is a finely textured portrait of a society rife in complexities, contradictions, and postponed but looming crises.

The task of explaining the causes of the wealth of the people in a society is a long and complex subject for a single e-book. To facilitate the explanation and the delivery of the material, an e-book will be published in each set of topics. The following are the planned titles of the book series: Your Wealth The first book looks at the time savings gained by a single person increasing his physical and mind assets in an island. The Wealth of Your Neighbor The second book is about the agreements that two people have to make to be in a path to increase their respective wealth. The Wealth of the Market The third book explains the opportunities offered by a free market to produce wealth for the people that participate in it. This book explains the wealth production results when there is a market that brings the competitive advantage of every individual to the table. The Wealth of the Business Enterprise The fourth book is about the function of the business enterprise to produce wealth for its customers, its owners, and its employees. The Wealth of the State The fifth book discusses what happens when we remove the assumption that everybody is going to behave correctly. The book explores the historical formation of the state and the implications for the production of wealth. The Wealth of Social Capital The sixth book is the core of the series. Social Capital is defined as the ability of a society to learn and agree on the rules that are necessary for the production of wealth. This is the key for the wealth of the people in society. This is the ingredient that is a prerequisite for physical and human capital formation and is the ingredient missing in many countries that are not able to achieve wealth. The Wealth of Physical Capital The seventh book is about the wealth of the physical capital that humanity has today. It should make you grateful that you live in this age and not five hundred or five thousand years ago. The Wealth of Human Capital The eighth book is about the wealth of the human capital that humanity has today. A great deal of the human capital available is taken for granted and it is wasted so it will be good to review it. The Wealth of a Nation The ninth book takes us to Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations. A nation is an entity that comprises a geographical area with a legal setting. It is governed by a state that is the keeper of the social contract. The state maintains the rules of a nation’s social capital and thus determines the capital structure of the nation and its citizens and in this way the state determines the income of its citizens. The Wealth of the Planet Earth The tenth book is about our planet. It introduces the concept of Natural Capital. What we think as natural resources is actually the capitalization of life that has been happening for millions of years. Unfortunately, many of the actions that we do in the pursuit of wealth production reduce the planet’s natural capital. If the planet was treated as a capital asset, it would be maintained correctly and it would not be consumed risking a drop of the whole world to a lower income level. The Wealth of the Human Spirit The eleventh book will be an inquiry about what of all these economic principles might mean in the spiritual world. End of the Series

Politics and policy are intimately connected. Understanding what different voters want, and why, is pretty complicated. From day to day politicians and policy makers use conventionally understood terms which reflect their understanding of the electorate.  We think we know what we mean when we talk about parties competing for the “centre ground”, or what the “aspirational working class” is, or the “north-south divide”.  But do we?  Ideas about the electorate reflect different generations of academic research - including some long defunct ideas. Society is always changing, and with it, so does academic research and polling evidence. This report is an attempt to update our maps. How should we understand geographical differences and the urban/rural divide?  Is there really a north-south divide, and if so why? What are different voters’ policy priorities? How do they think the parties should change? To answer these questions this project brings together existing opinion research, and uses an extensive polling exercise, regression analysis and qualitative research to try and improve our understanding of public policy, and the geography of political attitudes in Britain today.

Phineas Finn, the handsome Irishman, is equally successful at scaling the political ladder and gaining the affection of influential women. As he makes his precarious way in parliament he discovers how far principles must be sacrificed to the common cause, and how essential money is to political progress. Set during the turbulent passage of the second Reform Act of 1867, the novel paints a vivid picture of the compromises and tactics of daily political life. Loss of independence is felt just as keenly by Lady Laura and Violet Effingham, whose choice of marriage partner will determine their future freedom as much as their happiness. With politics and the personal so closely entwined, Phineas faces an act of conscience that will have a profound effect on his life. , Phineas Finn's engaging plot embraces matters as diverse as reform, the position of women, the Irish question, and the conflict between integrity and ambition.

Seller: Smashwords, Inc.

Following the Victory of Iran’s Islamic revolution in 1979 and the murder of Egypt’s President Anwar al-Sadat in 1981, many studies were undertaken and published on radical Islamic fundamentalist movements in the Middle East. Given these events, that research stressed the importance of such groups, focus-ing on reasons for their rise and possible future success. During the following decade, however, Islamic fundamentalist movements did not come to power in any country. Furthermore, they failed to show the kind of growth in power, size or influence which many observers had expected. Consequently, it is necessary to analyze why the fundamentalists have not done better. This study deals with Egypt, the most important country in the Arab world. Certainly, Egypt had many problems in the 1980s which might conceivably have strengthened radical Islamic groups, whose apparent assets seemed to include a long-established Muslim Brotherhood and a revolutionary underground capable of murdering the country’s ruler. This book considers why other, contrary, factors remained uppermost in Egyptian politics. The book began as a research project for the Orkand Corporation. Raymond Stock did a massive amount of translation with admirable speed and accuracy. Dr Ami Ayalon and Professor Jerrold Green read the manuscript and made ex-tremely helpful suggestions. Enthusiastic support from Simon Winder is also acknowledged with pleasure.

We’ll be mostly using the UK government’s ownfigures, the views of academic experts and Unionistpoliticians and officials, NOT those who support independence. On September the 18th you’re going to have to make the most important decision any Scot in history has ever made, and it seems only fair that you should be able to do it based on the real and full facts. Scotland’s media has only told you one half of the story. Don’t you at least want to hear both sides before you decide? Rev. Stuart Campbell Editor, Wings Over Scotland

Imagine getting up in the morning and going to work for a company that, just by virtue of the fact that you work for it, you own part of. Imagine that the company’s president and other officers have to stand for election every year or two years, and you and all the other employees of the company vote them in or out. Imagine getting an accounting on a quarterly basis of the company’s profitability and receiving a payout of your share of those profits – your due as a worker-owner. Imagine that you get tired of working for the company you own part of and decide to strike out on your own. Imagine that there are on-line services readily available where your skills demand high pay from independent clients, so that being self-employed and entirely your own boss is a matter only of doing the work. Or let’s say that you and a number of friends have an idea for a new business. Imagine a non-profit organization or perhaps a government agency set up just for that purpose, ready to provide you and your friends a low-interest loan, free advice, and lots of other assistance so you can do that – as long as your new business is a workers’ cooperative. Imagine a world in which nobody is obscenely rich and nobody is poor, and the average person makes about double – maybe triple – what most people make today. I can imagine that easily enough. Can you? Would you like to live in a world like that? I sure would. We’re ready for it. We just have to believe it and reach for it, and reclaim the word that stands for it. That word is “socialism.” It’s being misused today to describe something it’s not, a world of giant bureaucracies, stagnant economies, and secret police. That’s not what it means. It means a world in which ordinary people – probably people like you – own the businesses that provide your livelihood, instead of the economy being owned by a few hogs on Wall Street who see you as their peon. That’s what socialism is about. It’s about finally freeing ourselves from the vestiges of the old aristocracy, preserved without the titles in high-rise offices and gated communities. It’s about democracy in the workplace, not just the polling-place. It’s about ending the lie that we live in an era of austerity. We don’t. We live in an era of abundance, with technology capable of producing more wealth than ever before – but we also live in an era when a small, powerful, greedy elite see that wealth as belonging to them instead of to all of us, and that’s the reason so many people today are struggling. The world is rightfully ours, but like the word “socialism” it’s been stolen from us. This book is about taking it back.

The Republican Party has undergone a major transition over the last several decades, to the point where views that used to be considered extreme are now standard and commonplace. A few too many Americans seem obsessed with lowering tax rates on the wealthy, denying basic constitutional rights to Muslims and homosexuals, giving corporations free reign to do whatever will make them more money, filling our courts and prisons with marijuana offenders, taking money away from our educational system, combatting the so-called liberal media, disagreeing with the overwhelming majority of scientists, affiliating the government with Christianity, and associating President Obama with anything they deem un-American. Outlets like Fox News have been a driving force in making those views become mainstream, and giving legitimacy to a new, transformed brand of conservatism that has way too much of an influence on US politics. This book aims to expose right wing extremism for what it is, and remind how far today’s Republicans are from the party headed by people like Reagan, Nixon, and Eisenhower.

Seller: Jose Luis Fontalba

The European Union affects our daily lives. National governments implement regulations and laws which have been made at the EU level. The EU removes barriers between Member States, and we all profit from the freedom of movement of people and services in the EU. However, it is not always clear how these decisions are made, what policies are in place or the consequences these have for citizens and the EU as a whole. With much ongoing debate about reforming Europe, it is now more important than ever to know more about EU policies. This book contains 16 chapters on various EU policies, from financial topics to justice issues and foreign policy. It gives a broad and in-depth overview of the EU's and Member States' efforts to work together on issues that concern all of us, across the borders of the Member States. It provides information on the state of play and offers a glimpse of where we are headed. The book is intended for anyone who would like to learn more about EU policies, but especially for policymakers who wish to gain deeper knowledge of specific areas of EU policy.

the inability for capital, and therefore the state, to pay for the costs of producing a well educated workforce or to guarantee that investment in education will result in a more vigorous economy and increased living standards for those with qualifications. This breakdown, and the dogmatism of free market economics which seeks to alleviate it, has seen the imposition of a business rationale onto what previously had been regarded as the provision of a public service, sometimes even a public good in the UK and across Europe. From the investment of endowment funds on the market, to the conversion of students into (badly ripped off) consumers, to the no-frills fixed-term contracts being doled out to staff, to the speculative purchase of the future IP generated by scientific and technical departments, to the intended exchangeability of all qualifications under the Bologna Process, education is being ever more deeply determined by free market principles. With the ground changing this fast under staff and students' feet, the ability for collective action to fight the savage rounds of cuts has itself suffered as a result of a generalised precarity and fragmentation. Mute's interview with two organisers of last summer's strike at Tower Hamlets College reminds us that attacks on education workers and students are not soley motivated by financial concerns, but also comprise an attack on our working culture (our rights, values and expectations more generally). Despite the hostile conditions, we have nevertheless seen a persistent and recently growing wave of strikes, actions and occupations, both wildcat and union co-ordinated, breaking out around the world. Sixth formers, students, staff and those with a less personal stake in education are uniting in a new plane of struggle. However, a number of the reports included here stress the growing tension between the particularity of the cuts to the education sector and the more general 'public sector fight back' that is emerging. Despite the need to recognise the distinctions within the education sector itself (between academic staff and students on one hand, and non-academic staff on the other) there is a distinct danger of forming a coalition solely amongst students and workers who used to be students. The student occupation at Middlesex University over the summer of 2010, as well as the more recent spate of occupations and sit-ins in universities, schools, art galleries and other public spaces across Britain, have nevertheless ushered in a moment full of potential. Not only have they sought to be inclusive, but they have also shown the growing irrelevance of student leaders and old style mass-organising. Heidi Liane Hasbrouck's piece on the NUS's denunciation of the Millbank riot highlights this moment of self-realisation. There is a widening recognition of a need to self-organise and continually push at the borders of the possible. This is not '68 redux; and a better thing for it. All of this begs the question, will this fight-back be enough to save any residual quality and equality within education and its institutions? Mute began compiling a mini-dossier of reports, questionnaires and analyses on the crisis and struggles within education in May 2010, as it was unfolding in the UK and beyond. Since the magnificent occupation of the Tory headquarters at Millbank on 9 November - which seemed to jolt people out of their despair or slumbers - many more reports on education struggles have been published in Mute. Here we present you with a selection of some of the most urgent.

Many of us are becoming aware of a growing global problem with national economies and terrorism, but some believe we are being led down this path by powerful people determined to destroy our free society in favour of their own greed. So, is this conspiracy nonsense? I became so confused and worried about the global decline I saw around me that I decided to start researching for myself. Over the last four years I have discovered many things that left me speechless. I want everyone to explore the facts and make their own informed choices. Therefore, I have put together this short history of how the most powerful people in the world have managed to take us to the brink of destruction. Whether you believe in conspiracy theories or not, the facts in this book will give you pause for thought. The time for hoping it will all be all right is long gone. Read this book! Look at the facts, and choose for yourself! Ignorance is no longer bliss!

Bastiat asserted that the only purpose of government is to defend the right of an individual to life, liberty, and property. From this definition, Bastiat concluded that the law cannot defend life, liberty and property if it promotes socialist policies inherently opposed to these very things. In this way, he says, the law is perverted and turned against the thing it is supposed to defend.

Iran, my land, from the Gulf, streaked with blood, to your tall, proud mountains, rabid dogs rave Iran, my land, look how the ugly hyenas plough clots of blood in your rich soil, look how the clear water from your depths, is sucked into the sewage that is imperialism, But, Iran, my land, I vow, I vow to answer, the silence of your night, with the clamour of bullets; the darkness of your night, with the flame of bullets; and the cold of your night…. Ashraf Dehghani In February 1971, the Organization of Iranian People's Fedaee Guerrillas (O.I.P.F.G.) initiated the armed struggle in Iran by attacking the gendarmery at Siahkal in Northern Iran. This battle, although militarily a defeat, was an important political victory. Ever since, many revolutionary groups and elements have joined the armed struggle movement and hundreds of revolutionaries have been brutally executed or killed in armed clashes with the regime. Frightened by their heroic struggle, the regime utilized all of its forces to suppress the movement. Imprisonment, torture, and execution were furiously used.  Comrade Ashraf Dehghani, a prominent member of the O.I.P.F.G., was arrested in 1971 and savagely tortured. She succeeded in breaking out of the maximum-security prison and later rejoined the organization. During this time, she wrote her memoirs, which have been translated into English under the title, Torture and Resistance in Iran.  The Organization of Iranian People's Fadaee Guerrillas

Noam Chomsky is both the whipping post of the radical conspiracy community and the voice of reason for the intellectual left. The conspiracy community refers to Chomsky as "a gatekeeper" and a lot of people treat him like a government shill instead of the government critic he is. But at the same time, Noam began his career on the Lower East Side, as a die-hard Marxist, and the truth of the matter is that wherever you find Marxism in America, you'll find spooks and skull & bones. Even today after decades of studies, I still can't figure the spooks from the true believers. Like John Reed. He was a child of the American oligarchy who played a huge roll in spreading Marxism. Was he a spook? While a graduate student, I wrote my first critique of Chomsky's revolutionary theories in linguistics.

“A certain kind of rich man afflicted with the symptoms of moral dandyism sooner or later comes to the conclusion that it isn't enough merely to make money. He feels obliged to hold views, to espouse causes and elect Presidents, to explain to a trembling world how and why the world went wrong. The spectacle is nearly always comic.” —Lewis H. Lapham What's the difference between Saturday Night Live and the United States of America? Trump has made SNL great again. Did you hear about the terrorists who hijacked Trump’s private jet? They are threatening to release him unless all their demands are met. How has Donald’s real estate career prepared him for the presidency? He’s been kicking black families out of their homes for years. What will Donald do before he deports all the illegals? Make certain his pools are cleaned and lawns are mowed. Donald walks into a bar and a discussion about middle eastern relations ensues. Donald intones, “If I’m President I’ll just give our Constitution to middle eastern countries. After all, it’s worked for us for nearly 250 years.” “Besides,” says the bartender, “you won’t be using it anyway.” A personal assistant walks into Trump’s office, “Sir, I’ve got good news and bad news.” “What’s the good news?” asks Trump. “God’s on the phone.” “What’s the bad news?” “She’s calling from Mexico City and sounds pissed.” Did you hear Donald Trump is in an Off Broadway production of “The Vagina Monologues”? He plays the hair. Why doesn't Donald Trump use Preparation H? Because he's the perfect a*****e. How do you sleep like Donald Trump? First you lie on one side and, then you lie on the other. What’s brown and black and would look great on Donald Trump? A Doberman. What’s Donald Trump’s campaign song? “We Shall Overcomb.” Why are Muslims worried about The Donald becoming president? Because if you deport Juan you deport Jamal. Why are the jokes in this book so short? So Trump supporters can understand them. A seventh grade history teacher asked, “Class? Who said ‘Give me liberty or give me death?’” Juanita raised her hand and said in slightly accented English, “Patrick Henry.” “Quite good, Juanita. Now class, who said, ‘I regret that I have but one life to give for my country?’” Juanita said, “Nathan Hale.” “Very good Juanita. And class, I’m disappointed that a student recently moved here from Mexico knows more about American history than you do.” “F**k the Mexicans,” said a voice from the back of the room. “Who said that?” said the teacher.

Unfortunately, the idea of liberalism has always been skewed by pre-conceived notions, the most common ones being drinking, and life free of religion. In this book, Jana Licht clarifies the misconceptions under the broad topics of lifestyle and society, politics, and economics.

The phrase is perhaps somewhat paradoxical when applied to a political ideal which was the maintenance of the status quo; but, on the other hand, the steps taken during a period of years to organise an effective opposition to interference with the established constitution in Ireland did involve a movement, and it is with these measures, rather than with the policy behind them, that the book is concerned. Like all other movements in human affairs, the opposition of the Northern Protestants of Ireland to the agitation of their Nationalist fellow-countrymen for Home Rule can only be properly understood by those who take some pains to get at the true motives, and to appreciate the spirit, of those who engaged in it. And as it is nowhere more true than in Ireland that the events of to-day are the outcome of events that occurred longer ago than yesterday, and that the motives of to-day have consequently their roots buried somewhat deeply in the past, it is no easy task for the outside observer to gain the insight requisite for understanding fairly the conduct of the persons concerned.

Europe's better times were meant to be ahead of it. Not so long ago, the European dream was believed to have provided the best vision of the future; Europe was going to run the twenty-first century, having created an entirely new species of human organization, the likes of which the world has never seen. If the West – and most of the world – was American in the twentieth century, the twenty-first century was going to be European. Europe was going to lead the world by example; do it gently. "Soft power Europe" would rule without anyone noticing but everyone benefiting. All these assumptions proved hubristic: Europe's turn of fortune is humbling, humiliating and, perhaps, irreversible.

The initiation of the ongoing Kurdish peace process has largely been attributed to domestic factors. Largely neglected, but no less important, is the regional context of the process. In this regard, the desecuritization of the Kurdish issue, burgeoning ties between the Kurdistan Regional Government and Turkey, and the outbreak of the Syrian crisis and its Kurdish dimension formed the regional context of the process.

Complete with supporting links and end notes for our reference material, our research details how the public education system is being used as a vehicle to spread Socialism and Marxism to our youth. Oklahoma is the focus, but rest assured this is happening in every state. We point out the Federally backed programs that are designed to 'fundamentally change' how our children accept and promote these anti American ideals. We point out how long such programs have been in place and how they're affecting new voters. If you follow our research and compare it with your own state, you won't have anymore doubts that this is being pushed in your own local public schools.

Crises in a New World Order - Edmund Cairns

Challenging the Humanitarian Project
Edmund Cairns
Genre: Politics & Current Affairs
Publish Date: 16 August 2013
Publisher: Oxfam International
Seller: Oxfam

In 2010, vast humanitarian crises from Haiti to Pakistan almost overwhelmed the international system’s ability to respond. Despite years of reform, UN agencies, donors, and international NGOs (INGOs) struggled to cope. In 2011, Somalia yet again saw a response too little and too late, driven by media attention, not a timely, impartial assessment of human needs. At the same time, humanitarian action is needed now more than ever. The growing number of vulnerable people, the rise in disasters, and the failure to put most fragile states on the path to development, will significantly increase needs. Western-based donors, INGOs and the UN provide only part of the answer. Already, new donors and NGOs from around the world provide a significant share of humanitarian aid. Future humanitarian action will rely on them, and on the governments and civil society of crisis-affected countries even more. The UN and INGOs will be vital, but their contribution will increasingly be measured by how well they complement and support the efforts of others, and encourage every humanitarian actor to uphold humanitarian principles.

This small book outlines steps parents can take to teach children how to be sex offenders. It's easy. This part is satire. Next I discuss what parents and a concerned public can do to prevent children from becoming sex offenders. Prevention is hard. People must really want to do it. Apparently, not enough of us do. So, we will keep on raising children to be sex offenders. Is that what we want?

It has been made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 3.0 license and is part of the OAPEN-UK research project. Structures and processes occurring within and between states are no longer the only – or even the most important - determinants of those political, economic and social developments and dynamics that shape the modern world. Many issues, including the environment, health, crime, drugs, migration and terrorism, can no longer be contained within national boundaries. As a result, it is not always possible to identify the loci for authority and legitimacy, and the role of governments has been called into question. Civil Society anf International Governance critically analyses the increasing impact of nongovernmental organisations and civil society on global and regional governance. Written from the standpoint of advocates of civil society and addressing the role of civil society in relation to the UN, the IMF, the G8 and the WTO, this volume assess the role of various non-state actors from three perspectives: theoretical aspects, civil society interaction with the European Union and civil society and regional governance outside Europe, specifically Africa, East Asia and the Middle East. It demonstrates that civil society’s role has been more complex than one defined in terms, essentially, of resistance and includes actual participation in governance as well as multi-facetted contributions to legitimising and democratising global and regional governance. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of political science, international relations, civil society, sociology, European politics and global governance.

Istanbul Intrigues - Barry Rubin

Barry Rubin - Istanbul Intrigues artwork Istanbul Intrigues
Barry Rubin
Genre: Politics & Current Affairs
Publish Date: 14 February 2013
Publisher: Barry Rubin
Seller: Smashwords, Inc.

This is the story of Istanbul--but also of Turkey, the Balkans, and the eastern Mediterranean--during World War II, based on extensive interviews and the use of archives, especially those of the OSS, which I was the first to see for this region. The book is written as a cross between a scholarly work and a real-life thriller. The status of Turkey as a neutral country made it a center of espionage, a sort of actual equivalent of the film “Casablanca.” Aspects of the story include the Allied-Axis struggle to get Turkey on their side; the spy rings set up in the Middle East and the Balkans; the attempts of Jews to escape through Turkey; the Allies’ covert war in Greece, Yugoslavia, Hungary, and other countries; and the first accurate account of how the Germans recruited the British ambassador’s valet as a spy, who could have been their most successful agent of the war if only they had listened to his warnings. Other interesting stories include America’s first faltering attempts to establish its own intelligence agency and the affair of the efforts to bring about Hungary’s secret surrender to join the Allies, both of which ended in disaster. The book was published by McGraw Hill in 1989 with a paperback from Pharos/MacMillan in 1992. It was then published by Bosphorus University Press in 2002. The Turkish edition was published as Istanbul Entrikalari in 1994 and reprinted in 1996, 1999, and--by Dogan--in 2007

Native Life in South Africa - Solomon Tshekisho Plaatje

Genre: Politics & Current Affairs
Publish Date: 01 January 1932

"Native Life in South Africa" is one of the most remarkable books on Africa, by one of the continent's most remarkable writers. It was written as a work of impassioned political propaganda, exposing the plight of black South Africans under the whites-only government of newly unified South Africa. It focuses on the effects of the 1913 Natives' Land Act which introduced a uniform system of land segregation between the races. It resulted, as Plaatje shows, in the immediate expulsion of blacks, as "squatters", from their ancestral lands in the Orange Free State now declared "white". But Native Life succeeds in being much more than a work of propaganda. It is a vital social document which captures the spirit of an age and shows the effects of rural segregation on the everyday life of people.

International organisations are playing an increasingly important role in settling disputes. Progress in conflict management shows that more disputes than ever are being settled by negotiation and not on the battlefield. Therefore, there needs to be an increased focus on the ‘tool boxes’ of international organisations in the peace and security realm. However, at the same time the complexity of contemporary conflicts and conflict management is posing great challenges for the structures, resources and roles of most international organisations. This books deals with seven of these international organisations: the United Nations (UN), the European Union (EU), the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), the African Union (AU), the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) and the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO). This wide range of international organisations operate in different regions of the world and have different histories, legal foundations, security partners and resources for conflict management – all elements dealt with in this book.  It is our hope that the book will provide readers with a deeper understanding of these international organisations, their establishment, how they have evolved and the tools of conflict management they use.
