Does Democratic Socialism Work Any Better Than Totalitarian Socialism? Well

In the rampant rage of wide-spread devolution of humanity, particularly on the shores of the U.S., the arrogance of ignorance spews its contagion in diverse ways. It comes down to “I want to be part of America, and strive to become an American” compared to today where I want to live off the American Prosperity but I don’t want to really be an American, I want America to be my surrogate country. And if I can vote in the US, then I can help enable that goal. The CPV has established a nationwide political system with the Party serving as the ­­core that assists the Party leadership and mobilizes the people to realize the goals of national independence, democracy, and social progress. At present, the CPV has worked out a program for national construction which may be described as: Rich people-strong nation-equitable, democratic and civilized society. To achieve these goals, the CPV, in accordance with the principle of “the people as the country’s roots”, has set up a wide and diversified political system. French courts are presided over by Juges (Judges) also known as Magistrats (magistrates). Magistrats, are highly qualified professionals, almost all of whom have graduated from the postgraduate School of Magistrature; they are high-ranking juges In other words, a French Magistrat is not at all the same as a Magistrate in the English legal system. BANGLADESH: The country, an ex-British colony, has had two women in the national power. Begum Khaleda Zia was Prime Minister from 1991 to 1996. Khaleda was an advocate for the escaped assassination in 1995. However, she was reelected without opposition, but Khaleda Zia was succeeded by other woman: Sheik Hassina Wajed, anti-governmental activist. Sheik Hassina Wajed was as unpopularity as her predecessor.Bangladesh was one of the few states in the world whose government has been successively held by women. While roughly half of the country’s population is now covered by private health insurance, generously subsidised by the government, roughly half is not. Despite an “affluent society” many Australians simply cannot afford exorbitant private health insurance premiums. Meanwhile, some who hold private health insurance do so despite their inability to afford it, to avoid a public system that, as a consequence of waiting lists and a perceived “lack of care”, has come to embody the kind of “private affluence” and “public squalor” that so concerned Galbraith. If your partner dies without a will (called intestate), the Devolution of Estates Act determines who will get the property. Although the children born of your relationship will receive a share of the property, common-law partners are not recognized as having any property rights.

I applaud you for this hub. The cry for ‘equality’ is one without any sensible foundation. Nobody CAN be equal (in the manner which socialism purports) to a person who is clearly NOT their equal. I remember back when i was a student nurse, my tutor always reminded us to “treat our equals equally and our unequals unequally”. That has stayed with me more than perhaps anything else she said. To a socialist, it no doubt smacks of ‘bigotry’ or ‘injustice’ etc. But the truth of it is far different. When we treat everybody the exact same way, irrelevant of who they are or what has shaped and influenced them, or what their personal capacities are for differing things we serve up the most cruel injustice their could be to humanity as a whole. Yet when we treat people according to who they ARE (as such treating our equals equally and our unequals unequally) we are raising humanity and living according to true justice. While jurisdiction is closely linked with territory it is not exclusively so tied. Many states have jurisdiction to try offences that have taken place outside their territory. And in addition certain persons, property and situations are immune from the territorial jurisdiction in spite of being situated or taking place there. Diplomats, for example, have extensive immunity from the laws of the country in which they are working and various sovereign acts by states may not be questioned or overturned in the courts of a foreign country. As judicial enthusiasm for common law rights protection has grown, the justice system has come under unprecedented pressure. Ex turpi causa non oritur actio: (Latin: No action arises from an illegal cause) A person may not sue for damage arising out of an illegal activity. A person may not sue on an illegal contract, because it is void from the time of its creation. Rather than playing into the control mechanisms of society,” becoming conscious of one’s own class position is a requisite step in uniting with others who have similar class interests. Class consciousness is precisely what enables workers to understand their collective power and move beyond the isolation and alienation imposed by capitalism—quite the contrary to the specter of robotism” that the IWW writer raises. Naturally, socialists seek to extend that consciousness beyond trade unionism, to encompass a commitment to challenge all forms of oppression upon which capitalism depends. But class solidarity is the foundation of such a development. This new reality in the world, coupled with the fact that the world’s population has never been so vast, presents a challenge to elites seeking to dominate people all over the world who are aware and awakened to the realities of social inequality, war, poverty, exploitation, disrespect, imperialism and domination. This directly implies that these populations will be significantly more challenging to control: economically, politically, socially, psychologically and spiritually. Thus, from the point of view of the global oligarchy, the only method of imposing order and control — on this unique and historical human condition — is through the organized chaos of economic crises, war, and the rapid expansion and institutionalization of a global scientific dictatorship. Our hope is their fear; and our greatest fear is their only hope.

In the 1830s two great judges, James Kent of New York and Joseph Story of Massachusetts, produced important commentaries on common law and equity , emphasizing the need for legal certainty and for security of title to property. These works followed the common-law tradition, which has been fundamental in the United States except in Louisiana, where French civil law has survived. The opposition between civil law and common law legal systems has become increasingly blurred, with the importance of jurisprudence (almost like case law but in name) in civil law countries, and the growing importance of statute law and codes in common law countries (for instance, in matters of criminal and commercial law). A constitutional democracy is the third major type of democracy in operation today. Constitutional democracies are characterized by having structures in place that limit the power of the majority. Put another way, constitutional democracies have constitutions or other governing documents that help regulate the power of those elected to office. Generally defined as conduct that causes unreasonable risk of harm to others. Comparative negligence or comparative fault means a plaintiff’s own negligence that proportionately reduces the damages recoverable from a defendant. Concurrent or joint negligence involves the negligence of two or more parties causing the same damage. Negligence per se is negligence established as a matter of law that renders a person absolutely liable for resulting damages. I do appreciate your thoughtful comments. Marx might not have approved of the murder of one hundred million people persay. But he did promote an Atheistic state and the demolition of family and church as obstacles to total state power. He promoted the idea that the state was all important, not any individual person. This is the opposite of the American idea, which has proved most successful. As has been shown, this early Greek democracy was an intensely participatory form of government, as opposed to our modern representative form of government. Today the United States has what is traditionally been labeled a democracy, when in fact, it is a Republic. The main difference between our government and theirs is the cyclical election of public officials who go to the various state offices and to Washington to represent their constituents. Our voices do count, but not in the direct, everyday inner workings of legislating, ruling and judging the citizenry. Computers, copiers, printers and fax machines suck up the most energy in an office and are oftentimes left on 24 hours, 7 days a week.
