Unlike anarchism, syndicalism relied on the occupational group and the class rather than the individual. It accepted a degree of organization which alarmed pure” anarchists. The organization, the union, had tasks of immediate amelioration as well as of final social emancipation. The union, rather than the libertarian commune, was to be the nucleus of the freely federated society of the future. 44 Gregory Durston, ‘The Inquisitorial Ancestry of the Common Law Criminal Trial and the Consequences of its Transformation in the 18th Century’ (1996) 5 Griffith Law Review 177, 190-1. In 1856, judges of the Central Criminal Court were also given the right to hear cases outside the court’s ordinary jurisdiction, to ensure a fair trial where local prejudice existed or when it could offer an early trial and so avoid the delay involved in waiting for the next assizes. Socialism, while its theorists will never define it as a utopian myth, is the utopian myth that everyone can live at the expense of everyone else. By combining the myth of democratic voting (the fictional consent” of the governed) with socialism (social justice and the social contract) everyone becomes a winner or a loser at any given moment while the inevitable ruling class (someone has to count the votes in a democracy remember) never lose and always win. Text book definitions are irrelevant in this world as the reality of the world often times proves the text book definitions wrong. It makes little difference what Socialism is SUPPOSED to be. What it IS is a corrupt system, with or without a democratic selection processes. In today’s world there are no fair democracies at all, including and especially the USA. The rich dominate the landscape and dictate all the laws and the vast bulk of those laws restricts the freedom of individuals to pursue their own ambitions and goals. The more laws the rich create, the less freedom anyone who isn’t rich has. L.L. Woodward, you’re not alone!

A short time later, I started going to Legends in Manchester at the weekend, sometimes getting a lift off my friends.

Yugoslavia’s specific economic features based on self-management and increasing reliance on the market mechanism inspired a growing literature on market socialism and the labour-managed economy. Yugoslavia’s unique economic system stimulated considerable academic interest for several reasons (Estrin and Uvalić, 2008). First, the Yugoslav experience seemed to indicate the possibility of a third way, a view enhanced by President Tito’s global role as one of the leaders of the non-aligned movement following neither the unrestrained capitalism nor the harsh communism of the so-called First and Second worlds respectively. Second, the extension of the principles of democracy in decision-making was viewed by many as an objective for an economic system in its own right; this view synthesised a diverse set of utopian models for the future of the economy, for example that of the cooperative movement with employee democracy but also with private ownership, of syndicalism and of Israeli kibbutzim (Estrin and Uvalić, 2008, p. 665).
The colonial and apartheid legal orders, concentrated on the legalised subordination and oppression of black people. Blackness was stigmatised. Social amenities and legal services were segregated. Black communities were given very inferior legal services. Traditional courts and institutions were marginalised and underdeveloped. In many respects they were subverted to assist colonial and apartheid rule. Customary and religious laws that affected black communities were ignored or corrupted. The next day, CNT’s regional committee declared a general strike The CNT controlled the majority of the city, including the heavy artillery on the hill of Montjuïc overlooking the city. CNT militias disarmed more than 200 members of the security forces at their barricades, allowing only CNT vehicles to pass through. 33 After unsuccessful appeals from the CNT leadership to end the fighting, the government began transferring Assault Guard from the front to Barcelona, and even destroyers from Valencia. On 5 May, the Friends of Durruti issued a pamphlet calling for “disarming of the paramilitary police… dissolution of the political parties…” and declared “Long live the social revolution! – Down with the counter-revolution!”, though the pamphlet was quickly denounced by the leadership of the CNT. 34 The next day, the government agreed to a proposal by the leadership of the CNT-FAI that called for the removal of the Assault Guards and no reprisals against libertarians that had participated in the conflict in exchange for the dismantling of barricades and end of the general strike. However, neither the PSUC nor the Assault Guards gave up their positions and according to historian Antony Beevor “carried out violent reprisals against libertarians”. 35 By 8 May, the fighting was over. mens rea (menz ray-ah) Latin for a guilty mind”; mens rea is used to describe a culpable state of mind, the criminal intent of the individual when committing an criminal act.
