It is 1929 and the misery that had aided the efforts of Weimar’s enemies in the early 20s has been relieved by five years of economic growth and rising incomes. Trial Division hears only the most serious criminal matters like murder, attempted murder and treason, civil cases involving major sums of money or complex legal matters. I am all for cooperatives buying grocery stores. That is Capitalism. I am against the Government buying grocery stores-or worse-simply taking them. That is Socialism. After almost thirty years of transition to a market economy in the Yugoslav successor states, what have been the overall economic results? One of the main objectives of the transition – introducing a market economy based prevalently on private property – has been mainly achieved, given that the private sector today contributes the dominant part of output in all the successor states of Yugoslavia. However, the transition was also expected to lead to substantial social transformation and to deliver the long-term growth in living standards (World Bank, 1996). No, nicomp, speaking only for myself, I don’t want the government to organize society. That’s what community organizers do. Hint, hint. But that’s what socialism is all about. Don’t trust me. Google it. And, by the way, Bernie Sanders is a “democratic socialist”. Don’t trust me, Google him. That’s what makes me uneasy about his Presidential candidacy. I’m okay with the democratic part. It’s the socialist part that has me concerned. Thank you for reading my hub, and for your input.

Step 1.Â Massive Government Spending. Socialist states have government at the center of their economies and feature enormous spending programs. Russia seemed to be in the process of a partially syndicalist upheaval after the February Revolution Workers seized factories and operated them through factory committees, soviets, and trade unions; Lenin for a time found it politic to endorse workers’ control.â€ Abroad these developments helped to foster the idea of a workers’ revolutionâ€ in Russia and to win for communism the support of old-time syndicalists. After several years of feverish debate on workers’ control, the Bolsheviks managed to put a stop to what Lenin called syndicalist twaddle.â€ With the defeat of the Workers’ Opposition group, branded as anarchosyndicalistâ€ by its opponents, the state asserted its full control over the economy, and the party its control over the unions. Defeated in Russia, the idea of workers’ control was to reappear in the Yugoslav works councils and the revived works council movement in many countries after World War n. Pertaining to civil suits in “equity” rather than in “law.” In English legal history, the courts of “law” could order the payment of damages and could afford no other remedy (see damages). A separate court of “equity” could order someone to do something or to cease to do something (e.g., injunction). In American jurisprudence, the federal courts have both legal and equitable power, but the distinction is still an important one. For example, a trial by jury is normally available in “law” cases but not in “equity” cases. The current democratic representatives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could learn something about how our government works. She seems to have no clue about the Constitution. She was elected but her knowledge and inexperience is shocking. She has little understanding or appreciate how unique and special is our nation. She prefer socialism of Europe over our Constitutional republic. On the opposite spectrum, you have an experienced Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, who called Trump a criminal and wants to lock him up, without the basic protection of every citizen of innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. She could get a refresher course on the laws of the land that she is part of and has the power to write new laws.

Anyone within the team would tell you that being a trainee in the environmental, planning and public law team is more akin to being a newly qualified solicitor than most seats. I am given a substantial amount of responsibility, not only by managing my own files but including direct contact with clients and sorting my own billing. There is no ghost writingâ€ in this team and trainees generally provide a full first draft of any advice. It can be intimidating as a trainee at times but the support and supervision within the team is truly excellent. The work is primarily advisory with a small amount of transactional and contentious work and is a fantastic seat for any trainee. I’ve truly loved my time in this team and would say it has really aided in preparing me for qualification. An unjust social order is the permanent fount of this “generosity,” which is nourished by death, despair, and poverty. That is why the dispensers of false generosity become desperate as the slightest threat to its source. Denying the masses of their human right and have their basic needs met, in a modern and “ultra” civil civilization like those of the rich countries, that too holds back the development of that country or civilization. This socialist revolution has been underway in America for generations. In January 1964, President Lyndon Johnson boasted in a White House address: “We are going to try to take all of the money that we think is unnecessarily being spent and take it from the ‘haves’ and give it to the ‘have nots’ that need it so much.” What he advocated, of course, was a Marxist, not an American, precept. (The way Marx put it was: “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.”) But other presidents before and after have advanced the same goal. Of course, most who support this goal do not comprehend the totalitarian consequences of constantly transferring more power to Washington. But this lack of understanding is what makes revolution by the ballot box possible. Mere guarantee of political rights is not enough. It is undoubtedly true that political rights are hard won but they are harder still to be sustained and passed on to the future. The assumption that political rights such as equality and liberty, voting and elections would ensure permanency in the system is naÃ¯ve. Any right has a corresponding duty. If people are invested with political rights, they have to be clearly told about their duties as citizens. Political rights are like two-edged weapons. Ignorance or indifference of the people would lead to disaster. Political rights of modern times largely rest upon the assumption of equality of opportunity and status for all. This equality presupposes a number of variables but for our purpose, it is enough to state that political rights have no meaning if they are just enshrined in paper. They require constant application by the people. Technically we can have a plethora of rights but when people are so disillusioned with the system, they do not care even to exercise the most elementary freedom of right to vote. Unaware of the tremendous sacrifices made by the forebears to gain these rights, indifference and cynicism of a people not appreciating their rights would invite disaster.
Ben Franklin said It’s a Republic, if you can keep it. We were separated from the crown at the conclusion of the Revolutionary War. Accordingly we are individual sovereigns. The case is brought to point by the jury. We as jury members can judge the law as well as the facts. Norway was the one northern European country in which a group strongly influenced by syndicalism was for a time dominant in a mass labor movement. That group was the Trade Union Opposition of 1911,â€ led by the talented Martin Tranmael, who had worked in the United States and had been impressed by the IWW. Although it favored sabotage and other forms of direct action,â€ the Opposition of 1911â€ worked effectively with the left wing of the Labor party. When it won out in the Norwegian labor movement, it did not attempt revolutionary political or industrial action. Tranmael himself, elected general secretary of the Labor party in 1918, was the most influential leader in the Norwegian labor movement between the wars. The United States is a democracy, but it is not a true democracy. Instead, it is a representative democracy The common forms of democracy are direct democracy and representative democracy. A direct democracy is a system of government in which the majority have their say on every matter concerning governance. Direct democracies hold referendums each time an issue has to be decided upon because there are no elective representatives. The United States is a representative democracy, as the public elects individuals to represent them at the government level. The United States is also a constitutional democracy, meaning that the functions and roles of the government are governed by the constitution that also protects the rights and privileges of the citizenry regardless of whether they are majority or minority. Unlike English-speaking countries, which use a system of “Common Law”, France has a system of “Civil law”. Of all the Socialists who have come to power worldwide by decrying poverty, not one of them has ever increased productivity or abolished povertyâ€”or even reduced poverty. This has caused a shift in strategy among Socialists from declaring that if only they were in charge there would be plenty to go around, to declaring if they were in charge everybody would have a more just piece of the pie, an equitable distribution of wealth. But any such plan must in reality also decide who gets what.

So whether you were arrested for a crime against a person (like assault and battery, rape, or murder), a crime against property (like shoplifting, burglary, or arson), or a drug crime (marijuana possession or cocaine dealing), a criminal defense lawyer can help. Change of Venue – The transfer of a lawsuit from one county to another county, or from one court to another court in the same county or district. The United States was founded as a free country. Its citizens were autonomous. They were free. The US had a free economy. That was the way the designers of this land, the Founding Fathers, planned it. And it workedâ€¦ right up to the dawn of “Socialism in American” during the reign of, and as the direct results of actions taken by, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It has been downhill for America ever since. Appeals are heard in a Cour d’Appel or Court of Appeal, a “second degree court”. In France, there is a fundamental right of appeal in all cases. In exceptional circumstances, judgements of the AppealÂ Court can be contested at the highest level,Â the Cour de Cassation, the French SupremeÂ Court in matters of private law. I enjoyed your article very much. I too played on the House of David stage several times but in the 60’s. Too bad there isn’t a forum for folk who want to discuss HofD history, etc. But none of those countries is Socialist. They are each and every one countries built on Capitalism and still operating under principles of Free Market Economics. Socialist countries are more like the USSR, Nazi Germany, Red China, North Korea, Cuba, Cambodia, and all the nations that were once imprisoned behind the Iron Curtain. All of these claimed to be Socialist and most had the word “Socialist” in the name of their country. Once they report, move up to the Home Depot, Lowes, and Dell level. These are slightly harder to get credit from, as they typically want to see a few positive trade lines first. Again, wait the requisite 45-60 days for all these companies to report before moving up to the next level: general use credit cards. We should also note that in the present phase of the life of humanity, and for a given socio-economic whole, the time sequence of the three characteristic stages is not indispensable. Whatever its level of productive forces and present social structure, a society can pass rapidly through the defined stages appropriate to the concrete local realities (both historical and human) and reach a higher stage of existence. 43The later 1930s saw Bolton’s politics chime with those of a grouping of left-wingers from Chopwell that included Will Lawther and his brothers, Steve and Andy. They were all Labour Party members, but also overtly sympathetic towards the CPGB and its off-shoots (like the NUWM) without possessing a party card. Indeed, aside from this last feature, they all spoke and behaved pretty much as British communists of the time did, prioritising the same campaigns and issues. The Hitler-Stalin Non-aggression Pact on 22 August 1939 changed this dramatically, at least for Will Lawther, who turned strongly against the communists’ indescribable cynicismâ€. 104 This was merely compounded when the CPGB declared (and after some confusion) its neutrality in what it dubbed an â€˜imperialist’ war that broke out in September 1939.
