Continental Thoughts A Radical Cure: Hannah Arendt & Simone Weil on the Need for Roots Scott Remer thinks we arendt happy without a community and considers the complete reconstruction of the modern world to be well worth weil.. In her book The Origins of Totalitarianism, Hannah Arendt, German-Jewish émigré and political theorist extraordinaire, chillingly wrote: “Totalitarian.   In the realm of global and public health, African women have been a force in advocating for health equity and parity in their respective countries. In , Dr. Noerine Kaleeba founded the AIDS Support Organization Uganda (TASO Uganda), which was the premier organization in combating the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Uganda. The party appeared to me as a kind of nation-wide CSU—minus the fear and trembling in the face of the Eastern bloc, and minus the marked patronage of offices and blatant corruption which was noticeable already then. At first, I thought that this was just the party I had long been looking for, at least with respect to German national politics. Radical rudeness is an intrusion into the carefully maintained social script with a lexicon that confounds its treasured concept of political sociability and public morality. It engenders a sense of the collective, through its use of the language, the body, actions and gestures which create planes of shared and re-animated meaning that cuts.

  Herbert Marcuse, who was a guiding figure to many social activists of the 's because of his radical Marxist critique of Western capitalism, died .   Here’s my plan: I’ll lead off each discussion of Murray Rothbard’s For a New Liberty with (a) a brief summary of the chapter of the week, and (b) some critical comments. But this is your book club, so in the comments feel free to not only to discuss my summary and critique, but any thoughts you had on the chapter at hand.. Summary Since this book appeared in , it’s hardly. To my knowledge, no other book provides such a detailed account of the origins and evolution of the Republican Party’s policy toward slavery. Freedom National is particularly useful and compelling in two regards. First, it cuts against the one-sided view of Abraham Lincoln as a “reluctant emancipator” and brings to the fore his deeply.   Three years later, when Fukuyama published his book The End of History and the Last Man, the question mark had gone.

PN: The entire book, counting the unpublished manuscript and published essays that complete his narrative by describing later events in the Progressive Era, such as social and urban reform, World War I, the Federal Reserve, and Herbert Hoover in the s, is over pages.   Logically, increasing the zones for study, engagement, critique, and constructive work would leverage civil and human rights through a multi-realm compressor: from the mechanisms of policing and imprisonment within an imperial democracy through the realm of social justice movements to the maroon sites of study collectives built from repurposed.   This book serves quite adequately to bring us up to a present in which Chesterton's "The Secret People" appears unexpurgated as "poem of the month" on the British National Party's website.

The eros of children takes the boy-lover outside the grid of social realities within which adults are usually trapped. Man-boy relationships unfold. The Party fears intimacy more than sexuality, and it hates Eros in general because the modern goal, the mastery of nature, cannot be achieved without domin¬ion over human nature.
