The decade of the 1980s has traditionally been viewed as a time of strong economic growth and innovation, mainly due to the smaller government, pro-deregulation policies of the Reagan administration. 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 cases of civil law, the opinion of the jury may not have to be unanimous. Laws vary by state and country. Juries are present almost exclusively in criminal cases; virtually never involved in civil actions. Judges ensure law prevails over passion. It also made me reflect on all those lovely people from my youth – from my era – who have also lost their lives since those days in the eighties when we used to go clubbing together and had the best times growing up in the local post-punk and indie scene. This line of thought could render interesting sociological and philosophical insights around politics, ethics, space and time. Authors could consider what theoretical or methodological insights would aid in the development of our appreciation of prefigurative projects and larger theories of social, political and economic change. This Special Issue calls for a transdisciplinary approach, theoretical or empirical. People voting with their own dollars investing in a business they believe in to achieve later gains by perhaps getting lucky and getting in on the new floor of something wonderful and great – the potential opportunity of a life-time to invest in the start-up before everyone notices. It is this desire, dream, and opportunity which drives it. This is free market capitalism, and any gains made in such an investment – well, the credit shouldn’t go to socialism or used by socialists to proclaim that “socialism works” because in reality it doesn’t work – but again, crowdfunding isn’t socialism anyway. Just Cause – Sufficient reasons at law to permit employers to dismiss employees. For example, theft by an employee is usually just cause for dismissal. Just cause” applies to other legal situations, in addition to the dismissal of an employee, such as wrongful conversion of property” which is a taking without just cause”. It is important to note that in some states, stealing of any kind is considered a “crime of moral turpitude”. This means the act of stealing is not a favorable action in community standards of justice, honesty or good morals. Even if you are charged with a misdemeanor, you will have a permanent criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life. This can have negative effects on the wrongdoer’s character personally, legally and with future employment opportunities. Lawyers are generally called legal practitioners and can be either solicitors or barristers. Both have to complete a law degree (Bachelor of Laws or Juris Doctor) and undertake either further studies or work placements before they can work as a legal practitioner – this is a formal requirement called being admitted to practice.

If other targets of organized stalking want to share their experiences, I’d be up for compiling them into a collaboratively-written book – hit the Contact Satori button and message me about it. There are also a ton of internet options for promoting change on this issue – if people are interested, I’d love to apply them. You’re probably right, this article isn’t likely to get a lot of attention, and many citizens will go through life blithely ignorant of the problem. Now that you mention it, there are a ton of benevolent cause sites out there, such as PledgeBank and YourCause, that could bring about some good. I’d like to try to find some ways to use HubPages in combination with benevolent social networking sites and activism planning sites to bring about some good. It won’t make my life meaningful, but it’s about as good a way as any to waste my time in this broken system. Thanks for bringing the problem to the fore of my mind – once I see the problem, I can address it.

By the late 17th century, lawyers were practicing in the colonies, using English lawbooks and following English procedures and forms of action. In 1701 Rhode Island legislated to receive English law in full, subject to local legislation, and the same happened in the Carolinas in 1712 and 1715. Other colonies, in practice, also applied the common law with local variations. There is a fair argument that legislation and government regulation create certainty, which may make it worthwhile to accept their many costs. This is particularly acute in the area of high tech, where the application of common law may be unclear. 113 Malini Laxminarayan et al, ‘Victim Satisfaction with Criminal Justice: A Systematic Review’ (2013) 8 Victims and Offenders 119, 124. While the black-hooded anarchist rioters of global justice demonstrations remain the media’s favorite spectacle, anarchists of all types are currently debating new tactics, political shifts, and reassessments of the anarchist tradition. Importantly, strains of contemporary anarchism have offered convincing critiques of the lifestyle approach to social change, rehabilitated the legacy of syndicalism, reoriented to class struggle, and initiated new ways of relating to the working class and social movements. At the same time, other anarchists have mounted vicious attacks on the organized political left and activism in general.
