The widespread availability of computers and Internet connections provides unprecedented opportunities to communicate and learn. Unfortunately, although most people use the Internet as a powerful and beneficial tool for communication and education, some individuals exploit the power of the Internet for criminal or terrorist purposes. Section 1.3.2 and 1.3.3 above. The common law courts in Singapore generally adopt an adversarial approach in litigation between the disputing parties whilst the civil law judges tend to take a more active role in the finding of evidence to decide the outcome of the case. Thirdly, whilst numerous legal principles have been developed by common law judges, the civil law judges are more reliant on general and comprehensive codes governing wide areas. While there is no realistic “final” way out of this bind, progress could be made through a “co-operative incentive and support scheme” designed to encourage co-operative ownership through finance, advice and taxation incentives. Re-expanding the public sector would mark a reassertion of democratic control over the economy, and the capture of any surplus for social ends. Public ownership remains defensible for these reasons, and others, including the need to provide competition in oligopoly markets, to provide essential services on the basis of need, not profitability, and the need to provide first class infrastructure in areas of “natural public monopoly”. Socialist attempts to run agriculture were so poor that 5.2 million people starved to death. That number would have been six times higher had not Americans, led by Herbert Hoover, rushed in to feed the Russian people. As Aristotle commonly does, he applies physics to his scale of worth. The higher the items are on the scale, the more developed and organic they are, as opposed to the lower the item is, the more elemental it is. Nevertheless, the more intelligent person will not necessarily gain acceptance as a ruler in Aristotle’s polity. As mentioned previously, like democracy, Aristotle decides to hold elections, but not “by lot” like a normal oligarchy suggests. Once again, the magnitude of the power resides in the middle class, for it is the middle classes who are the good citizens and are for the “good laws.” If the system becomes tainted, and in turn, the state cannot keep people in check, a tyranny will emerge. What is helpful to remember is that in both cases of Aristotle’s polity and Plato’s perfect state the majority does not always rule. Two key facts to bring attention to in regards to political and social structure in Plato’s perfect state are organization and unity. Plato’s ideal state is centered completely on stability and structure. The solution to the problem of a non-governing state, according to Plato, is a combination of the two; organization and stability. Everyone has his or her proper position in the state, and for the greater good, they will and must adhere to it.
Anarchism isn’t simply bomb-throwing brutes – it is more properly called Libertarian Socialism. Its premises are cooperation, mutual assistance and freedom from force and authority. Rocker does a fairly comprehensive job of explaining what is involved. I think it is impossibly utopian, but a lot of people don’t, judging from the demonstrators one sees these days. We are not accustomed to condemnation of republican democracy – but it too is a form of domination, the majority over the minority and frequently the rich over the poor. The saving grace of a constitutional form of government is that, by choosing to live under one, citizens delegate certain decision-making rights to their representatives, and those representatives are supposed to honorably represent them in government. This book is fairly short and clearly written – a good read to learn what freedom could be and what seriously interferes with freedom. The Communist Party of China is in complete control of the country, from government to police to military. This is a great hub and also extremely interesting. When I studied World War II as part of U.S. history in high school and college in the 50s and 60s, I never could find information like this in textbooks and professors never talked about. This information is fascinating and I have learned a lot. I really look forward to reading about your father’s experiences during the War. Voted up and sharing with followers on Facebook, and Pinning. In civil law, the constitution is generally based on a code of laws, or codes applying to specific areas, like tax law, corporate law, or administrative law.

In 1938, Hitler annexed Austria and again finding he was appeased by the other weaker powers used the time to ensure most of Western Europe soon lay at his feet with Britain being the only country that stood firm with the prospect of war with them again frightening him greatly. Three types of defense fall under this umbrella category: self defense, defense of others and defense of property. Self defense is the act of using reasonable force to protect yourself from physical harm. Defense of others is the act of using reasonable force to protect others. Defense of property is using reasonable force to defend your belongings. In all cases, the phrase “reasonable force” is key. You cannot hit someone with a shovel if they threaten to spit on you. Specific defense laws vary from state to state.
