Le Collège Électoral Américain Est-il Une Fiction Polie Qui Devrait Être Abolie? : Les signes avant-coureurs versus l'éternelle politique de l'autruche

By: Fritz Dufour, Linguiste, MBA, DESS

La polarisation politique se produit lorsque les opinions ou les attentes d'une personne ou d'un groupe de personnes reflètent celles d'un parti politique (aux États-Unis: démocrate ou républicain) ou d'une idéologie (libérale ou conservatrice). La polarisation politique n'est pas quelque chose à craindre. En fait, c'est un test pour la démocratie et pour le progrès. L'exemple le plus remarquable de polarisation politique des temps modernes fut les États-Généraux français au cours duquel les révolutionnaires étaient assis à l'aile droite de l'Assemblée, tandis que ceux qui étaient contre la révolution étaient assis à l'aile gauche de l'Assemblée. Si la polarisation politique est un test décisif pour la démocratie et le progrès, l'excès en tout est préjudiciable. Habituellement, lorsque la polarisation affecte le résultat du vote populaire, cela signifie que les organes politiques ont déjà été polarisés. Pour cette raison, quiconque est élu, que ce soit par le collège électoral ou la Chambre des représentants, doit faire plus que ses prédécesseurs pour rassembler le pays grâce à des initiatives, des décisions ou des politiques bipar...

Le collège électoral américain a commencé à semer le doute chez les électeurs américains seulement 20 ans après la ratification du 12ème amendement de la Constitution américaine en 1804, qui prévoit l'élection du président et du vice-président par le collège électoral. En l'absence de vote majoritaire pour une personne, la Chambre des représentants (un vote par état) choisit le président, et le Sénat le vice-président. Aujourd'hui, 213 ans après que le premier signe annonciateur ait surgi en 1824 avec l'élection de John Quincy Adams, l'efficacité du collège électoral demeure un sujet brûlant et qui suscite beaucoup de polémique…À l'époque où la constitution américaine a été écrite et ratifiée, elle était, grâce à sa vision, une entreprise totalement en avance sur son temps. Elle incarne l'exceptionnalisme américain, caractérisé par une histoire unique, une mission unique et des valeurs uniques. Alexis de Tocqueville fut le premier à identifier cet exceptionnalisme et à lui donner son approbation ou sa bénédiction dans son livre De la démocratie en Amérique. Il fut un observateur français de la démocratie américaine qui a voyagé à tr...

The USA, Russia, China Triangle and the Fall of the Soviet Union

By: Iakovos Alhadeff

The second half of the 20th Century was marked by the American-Soviet rivalry. During this period the Americans approached the Chinese, in order to alienate them from the Soviets, while the KGB broke the Soviet Union in order for Russia to approach Western European countries and export the huge Russian oil and natural gas reserves to the big industrial economies of Europe. Today the Europeans are afraid of Russia while the Americans are afraid of China, and the post Cold War geopolitical landscape is changing once more....

Rationalis : An Examination of (Ir)Rationality, Legality, and Identity in the Third Reich and Shoah

By: Ariel Ricker

Since the collapse of the Nazi regime, there has existed the need to understand the motivations of Nazi genocidaires who undertook widespread massacre in the name of the Reich State. Popular films produced in English, academic theses published in Hebrew, and online philosophy and history forums composed of little known languages all indicate a global commitment to understanding the particular “why” and “how” of genocide. This thesis examines the legal and social vehicles that moved the Weimar Republic, and nascent Reich politics towards Shoah. Specifically, foundations of Nazi conduct are examined on three levels: First, as evolution of Jewish identity from homo viator to homo sacer; second, development of Reich law and jurisprudence supporting dehumanization; third, the different forms of rationality/irrationality espoused by SS guards, camp doctors, and Nazi jurists. This analysis contributes to global discussions of comparative genocide, semiotic square usage, and post-structuralist identity politics. This study will interest advanced students of political science and human rights professionals interested in genocide prevention....

"The charged environment of altered and un-made familiar or known gesture420 unfolded as part of the ongoing dehumanizing project wrecked upon the viator: to unmake his world was to unmake his originality and previously unquestioned right to exist. This externalization of the viator’s figurative disintegration was represented through the state’s de-objectification and subsequent re-signification of certain objects previously taken for granted. Two examples of this dual step towards dehumanization are the shower heads in the gas chambers and the trucks used for transporting the victims, both of which are explored in more detail in Chapter XII."...

Anti-National Humanist

By: Ankur Mutreja

In this essay, the author is trying to answer the question: is there a political possibility of existence of a humanist as an anti-national humanist? He wonders if it is possible for humanists like doctors to not become the externalities of nationalism labeling the blood saffron, green, red, black and white (even pacifists die in wars between nations)....

British Sailors in Indian Stinking Jails!

By: Ved from Victoria Institutions

can mention something from my own experiences. I started by schooling in a Cambridge-University certification school (I think), wherein initially the teachers and priests were more or less Anglo-Indians of the English variety. (There is the Indian variety of Anglo-Indians also. The first version has vanished from India now). However, after around after around one and half years of such schooling, the Anglo-Indian group vanished and a native converted-to-Christian priests took over the management....

The Geopolitics of Energy & Terrorism, Part 6

By: Iakovos Alhadeff

The following chapters are independent essays that were written between July 2015 and February 2016. They appear in random order, and therefore they do not have to be read in the order they appear. The issue in all the essays is the connection between the energy policies of various countries, their foreign policies, and the wars that break out at various parts of the globe, since all three are closely related. I describe many economic interests and many alliances in my essays. But alliances change and so do economic interest. Therefore what is more important for the reader is to have an idea of the global resources i.e. oil and natural gas in my essays, because global resources change at a much lower pace than economic interests and economic alliances. The alliances and conflicts I describe in my essays might not exist in the near future, but if you have an idea of the global resources you will be able to see the alliances and the economic interests that will exist in the future....

Kings’ Dirty Operation : Concise Memos of My Cooperation with the CIA and Illuminati's Hell

By: Peiman Ghasemi; Barack Obama, Co-Author

Today I decided to write a book, there shall be included a concise part of my cooperation with the White House and the Central Intelligence Agency and Human Rights Watch (HRW) and the IFRC (the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies). A few political leaders of England and France, agents of NSA (The National Security Agency of the United States, which has forbidden me from submitting any secret information) and CIA and Mossad and Shin Bet (Shabak) and USSS (The United States Secret Service) and Microsoft personals have communicated with me, inquiring about what I have now started to write. My life is full of espionage and political memories. When I started my political activities and when I started to fight for freedom of people, I was only 14. I was a teenage boy. An investigative student. It caused that I got tortured (by exposure) extremely hard. I have been all around hell, all around the Globe. I have stayed in Russia; places so cold that your very bones inside of you shriek. Deep down inside the underground city, where you ask yourself “How is it possible for satellites with their warheads to track me...

It’s about the beginning of the latest century. Inside a calm city, near a warm bed there’s a personal computer near the backdoor on the first floor of a creaky house, a teenage boy is inside. He has heard much gossip about the daily challenges and the everyday complaints which people are confronted by and dealing with. Those people who are the heart, the soul, and the backbone of our society, auctioning their own homes; and their suspicious activities are under supervision in their everyday lives! Just imagine a group of rebels have dropped a woman inside a big hole and they are throwing stones at her head, stones tear the skin of her head and blood covers her face. Before one of the great disasters happens in another country, a group of people who have authority to observe, those whose work we call ‘social engineering’, inside the bubble1, inside top-secret facilities are looking into some jets; the jet pilots keep flying and they crash the jets into a great building! Have you ever thought about why these impressive disasters affect our everyday life, and it may cause so many negative effects, deep in our souls! If someone told yo...

The Financing of Hollywood's Socialist Propaganda

By: Iakovos Alhadeff

It is a well known fact that Holywood is leaning towards socialism. However the financing of this Hollywood socialist propaganda is rarely discussed. The last few years saw some socialist movies like “The Wolf of Wall Street”, “The Promised Land”, “The Big Short” becoming major box office success stories. The question is who is financing this socialist propaganda in the United States, and that’s what this essay is about....

By: Wesley Krug

This book is about how to improve global living standards. Topics include economic growth, income inequality, poverty, corruption, causes of the decline of the middle class, sustainable development, emerging technologies, and more. Below is a list of questions answered throughout: * Which nations have the best living standards?

Or not big enough? * Is libertarianism a good or bad idea? * Why are several industries dominated by a handful of corporations? What can we do about it? * Why are prescription medications so expensive? How do we reduce costs? * Do we need more regulations on businesses? Or less? * Should nations be more open to free trade?

Unten bleiben : Zwischenbericht der Piratenfraktion zum Untersuchungsausschuss BER

By: Dr. Martin Delius; Benedict Ugarte-Chacon

Das Werk ist ein Bericht, dass die Erkenntnisse um den so genannten BER-Skandal zusammenfasst wie sie aus Sicht der Piratenfraktion im Berliner Abgeordnetenhaus und der Arbeit im damit beschäftigten Untersuchungsausschuss erwachsen. Die gravierenden Mängel in der Standortwahl, die verwirrenden und zum Teil unlauteren Verstrickungen von Firmen und Einzelpersonen in die geplante Privatisierung des zukünftigen Flughafens und die unzulässige Einwirkung von öffentlichen Einrichtungen auf unabhängige Beteiligungsverfahren sind die Schwerpunkte dieser Arbeit. Die Autoren betrachten über den Zeitraum zwischen 1994 und 2004 die Vorgänge um das Projekt im Land Berlin, Brandenburg und der Bundesrepublik Deutschland und schlagen Bögen zur skandalösen Situation des Flughafenneubaus im Jahr 2013....

Onto the Stage : ‘Slighted Souls’ and other stage and radio plays

Scene – 1 Voice Over: Under the British Raj in India, the self-indulging Nizams of Hyderabad abdicated the administration of their vast principality to doralu, the village heads, letting them turn the areas under their domain into their personal fiefdoms. While the successive Nizams were obsessed with building palaces and acquiring jewelry, the village heads succeeded in ushering in an oppressive era of tyrannical order. Acting as loose cannon from their palatial houses called gadis, the doralu succeeded in foisting an inimical feudal order upon the downtrodden dalits. Besides making these dalits toil for them as cheap labor without impunity, the doralu had no qualms in making vassals out of the hapless women folk. What with the police patels and the revenue patwaris in nexus with the landed gentry and the moneyed shaukars making a common cause with the doralu in their unabated exploitation, their sub-human condition ensured that the dalits were distressed economically, degraded socially and debased morally. Ironically, lending the privileged few the muscle power to perpetrate the inimical social order were their henchmen f...
