The key difference between a democracy and a republic lies in the limits placed on government by the law, which has implications for minority rights. The most problematic limb of this two part definition is mens rea. Most of the literature that has addressed this area has focused on the definition of intention, and more importantly, the foresight of a person accused of such a crime. An example of this would be the classical illustration given in most text books. Here a person wants to blow up a plane. The accused contends that that was his only aim, his only intention. However, the plane is full of people on board; if the plane explodes then the people on board will be killed. A persons foresight of their actions, therefore, plays a crucial role. The case law on the area of mens rea has been extensive, with a definition finally being settled upon in a House of Lords case. (It is not in the scope of this brief article to explore the area fully, although the citation for this case is R v Woolin 1996). 3D Printing is not particularly new. What is new is its wider acceptance and use in the manufacturing of finished products. 3D Printing was invented during the 1980s by Charles W. Hull, who is known as Chuck Hull. Hull received a patent in Match 1986 from the United States Patent Office (U.S. Patent Number 4,575,330), which is titled Apparatus for Production of Three-Dimensional Objects by Stereolithography.â€ Stereolithography is the technical term that Hull gave what is widely known as 3D Printing. After receiving the patent in 1986, Hull founded a company that he called 3D Systems to commercialize his patented 3D Printing concept. 3D Systems is currently the dominant company in the field of 3D Printing machines and services. In the many years since socialism entered English around 1830, it has acquired several different meanings. It refers to a system of social organization in which private property and the distribution of income are subject to social control, but the conception of that control has varied, and the term has been interpreted in widely diverging ways, ranging from statist to libertarian, from Marxist to liberal. In the modern era, “pure” socialism has been seen only rarely and usually briefly in a few Communist regimes. Far more common are systems of social democracy , now often referred to as democratic socialism, in which extensive state regulation, with limited state ownership, has been employed by democratically elected governments (as in Sweden and Denmark) in the belief that it produces a fair distribution of income without impairing economic growth. In the Supreme Court, the residence test appeal also succeeded on the question of ultra vires (R (Public Law Project) v Lord Chancellor 2016 UKSC 39 ). The government did not have the statutory power to make the relevant secondary legislation. Arguments were heard on both HRA protections and the common law, focusing on discrimination and equality before the law and dismissed with little consideration by the Court of Appeal (see 2015 EWCA Civ 1193 ). While the success of that case is crucially important, significant issues of principle about the protection offered by our law against discrimination in access to justice are yet to be determined.
Tenant in Common – Multiple owners of real or personal property, whereby each owner owns a specific percent of the property. Ruth Kinna is a professor of Political Theory at Loughborough University, working in the Department of Politics, History and International Relations. She works on the history of ideas, specialising in nineteenth and early twentieth-century socialist thought and in contemporary radical politics, particularly anarchism. She has been editor of the journal Anarchist Studies since 2007. She has been a regular contributor to the London-based STRIKE! Magazine, and a discussant on BBC Radio 4’s Ideas in Our Time and BBC Radio 3’s Nightwaves. There is too much socialism and too much government influence and control as it is. It is the real reason why we are running up such Debt and why monopolies are continuing to grow and stifle competition. Two night courts operate from Monday to Friday after 6 pm for the benefit of the working public to deal with the large volume of regulatory cases. The first Night Court deals with summonses and notices issued by the various departments such as the Housing and Development Board, the Urban Redevelopment Authority, Central Provident Fund Board, and the Registry of Companies and Businesses. The second Night Court deals with road traffic offences brought by the Traffic Police and regulatory offences brought by the Land Transport Authority. Record Costs – Fees paid to the court or agents of a court and the sheriff as part of a civil lawsuit. American Capitalism is by no means a perfect system. But rather than throw it out in favor of socialism, I would rather take the approach of having government deal with market distortion and create impediments so that businesses can’t manipulate the system as much as they seem to at the present moment (what some have called Crony Capitalism). In the post-LASPO (Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012) landscape, challenges have been brought in the ordinary public law to oppose growing restrictions on the provision of legal advice and services to those without independent means, with varying degrees of success. While each of these cases has involved arguments about access to justice grounded in the common law and the HRA, they have largely been determined on ordinary public law grounds. For example, in R (Rights of Women) v Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice 2016 EWCA Civ 91 and in R (Ben Hoare Bell Solicitors and others) v Lord Chancellor 2015 EWHC 523 (Admin) , challenges succeeded because post-LASPO regulations restricting access to legal aid were inconsistent with the statutory purpose of that Act (following Padfield and others v Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and others 1968 AC 997 ).
Since then, public consensus on the Scopes trial has mostly been shaped by a 1960 film called Inherit the Wind, which is loosely based on the event. However, author Edward Larson has since tried to fill in the gaps in the movie, as well as correct some of its inaccuracies. His book Summer for the Gods is possibly the most detailed account of the trial, including the events that led to it as well as its aftermath. Accordingly, it is broken down into three main sections: “Before,” “During,” “And After.” When writing the book, Larson had at his disposal a vast amount of archival material that no researcher had the privilege of examining before. This advantage is made clear throughout the text-practically on every page-which is filled with details you’d never find with a simple Google search. Larson also takes the dual-position of historian as well as storyteller. In addition to providing copious detail on every aspect of the trial (everything from facial expressions to random observers’ commentary), Larson tries to the story of the Scopes trial in narrative form. When retelling the tale of John Scopes being asked to go to trial, Larson adds in: “A chain smoker, Scopes probably lit a cigarette at this point, if he had not already done so” (p. 89). Additions like these, although minor, make the entire text sound like a story rather than a history textbook, therefore making the book more readable to a wider audience. There are two main forms of contempt – criminal and civil – but the burden of proof for both is to the criminal standard – Dean v Dean 1987 1 FLR 517 CA. The question whether contempt is a criminal contempt does not depend on the nature of the court to which the contempt was displayed; it depends on the nature of the conduct. To burst into a court room and disrupt a civil trial would be a criminal contempt just as much as if the court had been conducting a criminal trial. Conversely, disobedience to a procedural order of a court is not in itself a crime, just because the order was made in the course of criminal proceedings.â€ – R v ‘Brien 2014 UKSC 23 at 42. As a result of the past, human resources in the justice system are skewed along race and gender lines. Posts in the former TBVC states and the lower posts in the justice system are virtually all held by black people. Senior posts are virtually all held by white people. The legal profession and its governing institutions are dominated by white males. This must be changed. There must be enough black people and women in senior legal posts and in the justice system as a whole. It must be made truly representative of the South African people. Corrective action must be embarked upon in order to ensure that this objective is achieved as speedily as possible.
Non-democratic states in which political power is concentrated within a single political party whose operations are largely fused with the government hierarchy. The past 30 years have shown that capitalism does not need democracy to take root: In China, the introduction of capitalism has not lead to an expansion of democratic rights, and authoritarian governments in other countries â€” like Hungary â€” have also enthusiastically embraced capitalism. But Socialism means the abolition of private enterprise, of private ownership over the means of production, and the creation of a centrally planned economy in which an entrepreneur working for a profit is replaced by a government planning body. Research (Cheung and Rudowicz, 2003) shown that students stratified in low-band schools may be particularly vulnerable to the big-fish-little-pond effect, which erodes the self-esteem of students in ability-grouped classroom observed in Hong Kong and other places. Cheung (1997) pointed out academic performance in school may be associated with deviant behavior. Poor academic results may generate a low self-concept and a low perceived personal control, which may, in turn, be conducive to involvement in delinquency. In reality, students admitted to SSSs could be characterized as low motivated, possess negative or low self concept, academic underachiever, undesirable behavioral pattern, immature emotional control, lack of social skills and poor parent-child relationship. SSSs are well aware of these characteristics and many of its programs are designed to enhance students’ positive self concept and develop their self-esteem. By providing a few plants in your workplace, you’re doing your office environment and the people working in it, a big favour. Consider for a moment, every single one of those machines going flat-out, all day, in your workplace; printers, faxes, photocopiers, scanners, computers, etc, each of these contributes to the air being drier than normal. Nevertheless, a critical re-examination of the centralised economic system emerged soon after. There was growing awareness that a centrally planned economy had a number of flaws (see UvaliÄ‡, R. 1954). The system required a highly developed administrative machinery: in addition to the federal, republic, town and district planning commissions, each Ministry had its own planning department. Enterprises in the same industry were united within each republic under a central directorate at the federal level. The main objective of enterprises was to maximise production regardless of costs: State officials replaced the former owners and capitalists and their employees who had run the undertaking. It seemed to the workers as if no essential change had occurredâ€¦ There was even conflict between undertakings and the higher state authorities as regards the fulfilment of the plansâ€¦ In these circumstances assignments were often fulfilled at the expense of quality and varietyâ€ (UvaliÄ‡, R. 1954, p. 238).
For those nonsocialists who put political equality first and those socialists who do worry over it, this mobilization of capitalist oligarchy under social democratic auspices also remains a first-order threat to democracyâ€”one all too prone to perpetuating a structure of domination , as any avid reader of Nordic detective fiction can tell you. In such Scandinavian social democracies, the bid to roll back oligarchic control has again relied on the insulating political power of organized labor. 99 Ibid; Tinneke Van Camp and Jo-Anne Wemmers, â€˜Victims’ Satisfaction with Restorative Justice: More Than Simply Procedural Justice’ (2013) 19(2) International Review of Victimology 117; Judith Herman, â€˜The Mental Health of Crime Victims: Impact of Legal Intervention’ (2003) 16(2) Journal of Traumatic Stress 159. Mike, I think you are confused. Just because an agency is a federal one does not mean that is socialism. Our Constitution, if you read it and understand it, has some specific powers given to the federal government and that includes rhe military. The legal system of England and Wales is a common law one, so the decisions of the senior appellate courts (see below) become part of the law. Egalitarian democracy, socialist and nonsocialist alike, will no doubt require substantial social welfare provisions to ensure that all citizens may exercise their citizenship effectively, but it matters a great deal how such benefits are understoodâ€”and that they are available universally. As Rawls said, the point of social-democratic provisions like universal health care is to put all citizens in a position to manage their own affairs on a footing of a suitable degree of social and economic equality.â€ Health care, quality education, a minimum income, and other such basic goods are among what some in the distributional tradition have termed the initial endowmentsâ€ essential to full membership for all citizens in a democratic polity. It would be nice if more American socialists and social democrats talked about such basic social provisions in these terms instead of simply as a way of securing the material well-being of the poor. Parsons – Lucy Parsons (1853-1942) Activist who played a crucial role in the worker’s movements in Chicago. She helped found the International Working People’s Association (IWPA), an anarchist-influenced labor organization that promoted revolutionary direct action towards a stateless and cooperative society and insisted on the equality of people of color and women.
