A crime is anything that is illegal. 7 The main macroeconomic aggregate in Yugoslavia was Social Product”, corresponding to Gross Material Product: it was the value added of the productive” sectors of the economy, thus excluding most non-productive” sectors such as education, health, defence, banking, and other services. In this sense it is similar to the concept of Net Material Product that was used in other socialist countries, but differs from such a concept because it is gross of depreciation. Communist party control of the economy was eliminated with the passage from a one-party to a multiparty political system, following the first multi-party elections held in all Yugoslav republics during 1990. Planning and other non-market mechanisms of resource allocation and policy coordination, such as medium term (five-year) plans or social compacts, had already lost relevance in Yugoslavia by the late 1980s. Other institutional features of the socialist economic system were also being changed through a series of new laws adopted in 1988-89, as described earlier. Property transformation, aimed at replacing social property with mixed or fully private property in the bulk of the economy, also started from mid-1990 onwards according to the provisions of the Federal privatisation law. Self-management was to be eliminated through provisions of the new company law and through the privatisation process, that was to transfer workers’ decision-making rights to the new private capital owners. Well you are right about one thing, I can’t argue with a belief and damn sure can’t make you understand that corporations such as Lehman Brothers and AIG lent beyond their solvency to grab as much of the derivatives and other junk bonds they could in their drunken greed without the oversight necessary to stop it. With the overturning of Glass Steagal lobbied heavily by the Banks and credit companies I also can’t convince you against your belief that American Express and other credit companies bet against any default that the federal government wouldn’t back with our tax dollars. It is hard to understand why you cannot accept that the American concept of short term gains over rides any prudent thought or care for the law. Anarchism finds its first and most well-known expression in India with Mahatma Gandhi’s statement, ‘the state evil is not the cause but the effect of social evil, just as the sea-waves are the effect not the cause of the storm. The only way of curing the disease is by removing the cause itself…the state is perfect and non-violent where the people are governed the least. The nearest approach to purest anarchy would be a democracy based on non-violence.” Jason Adams, Non-Western Anarchisms: Rethinking the Global Context (Soweto, South Africa: Zabalaza Books, 2003), 13. To give a sense of the disparate views of these individuals: Stirner was a mid-eighteenth century individualist anarchist; Tolstoy was a pacifist, Christian anarchist; Thoreau advocated civil disobedience against injustice; Bakunin was a collectivist anarchist” who favored violent revolution; and Zerzan is a primitivist,” advocating a rejection of modern technology.
Corporate socialism aims to arrive at a singular, one-world state, with vast globalist monopolies controlling production. These monopolies would be paralleled by a socialism or equality of reduced expectations for everyone else. Unwary dupes like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez serve corporate socialists by habituating the masses to this state of affairs. 17 The 1974 Constitution had considerably reinforced the powers of the two provinces: although they were nominally provinces within Serbia, Kosovo and Vojvodina had a very high level of autonomy, comparable to that of the republics. La Feuille, two of the most legendary French magazines of the 1890s. A selection from his writings, a modest gallery of portraits and some biographical texts, in French, from the collections of the International Institute of Social History. The Government is in charge of tasks assigned by the State in the fields of politics, socio-economy, national defense, security and external relations; maintains effective operation of the State apparatus from the central to grassroots levels; ensures the respect for, and implementation of the Constitution and laws; promotes the people’s sense of mastery in national defense and construction; ensures stability and improves the people’s material and spiritual life. In all the democratic countries of the world, economic power is concentrated in the hands of a few individuals and groups. In liberal democracies economic power is controlled by a handful of capitalists, while in socialist countries economic power is concentrated in a small group of party leaders. In each case a handful of people – the number can easily be counted on one’s fingertips – manipulates the economic welfare of the entire society. When economic power is vested in the hands of the people, the supremacy of this group of leaders will be terminated, and political parties will be destroyed forever. Many people have strong views on the legal system and the changes that have taken place over the last few decades; changes such as the reduction of access to the appeal system, the removal of the rights of defendants to remain silent during police interviews without an adverse inference being made, and the reduction of access to legal aid There are many debates about how much public money should be spent on the legal system and how money should be raised to fund it. When one Watches the members of the GOP in a discussion format, were vehemently opposed to the present immigration of peoples from Latin America, Mexico and South America. The strange thing that seems to be like a hangover, they keep on attacking Obama for trying to better the lives of all in America, and yet Obama is not running for the third term,m. In fact, Obama has proven to many of his detractors, from their blocking him from all ends, he managed to implement policies which are going to leave America in a better and different position.
When you compare Socialism vs Democratic Republic structure the factors to be considered are majority rule, succession, presence of parliament and constitution. common law – the body of law developed through judges applying the law to the particular facts in individual cases. Where legislation does not cover the specific facts of a case, judges use legal principles and decisions made in similar cases to reach a decision. This is becoming less frequent, however, as legislation increasingly covers most areas of law. Whilst maintaining high levels of supplies in the office will prevent any catastrophic shortfalls at inopportune moments, they will also take up valuable storage space. An inventory can help to prevent storage problems by always ensuring the optimum levels of supplies are maintained, and by monitoring the inventory at all times, re-supply levels can be adjusted if necessary. There are still public intellectuals who label themselves as anarchists; Noam Chomsky is one of them, or Naomi Klein —who I’m not sure has said that she is anarchist, but has clearly expressed views that are anarchistic. She talks about anarchist movements, endorses anarchist practices. So there are people who call themselves anarchist. There are also certainly social movements which call themselves anarchist, or labour organisations that are full of people who call themselves anarchists, even though the union doesn’t call itself that. The Industrial Workers of the World, for example, is essentially an anarchist union in terms of its membership, even if it doesn’t sign up to a particular ideology. Certainly since the rise of the social justice movement in the late 1990s, there has been a much greater sense in which the grassroots Left is defined by anarchist ideas. There’s a huge literature now on anarchism; there are publishers and cooperative movements that call themselves anarchist. So it is there, it exists, but you’re right that it doesn’t exist very publicly, at least not in the mainstream. In keeping with their conception of the state as a tool of capitalist oppression, the syndicalists shunned political means of achieving their goals. This reliance upon direct industrial action stemmed from practical considerations as well: outside the mine or factory, the syndicalists realized, political differences among workers would come into play, possibly hindering mass action. Inside, their similar employment gave workers a sense of solidarity. Georges Sorel , a leading syndicalist theoretician, developed the concept of the social myth,” which could be used to stir workers to revolutionary action. The general strike , the preeminent syndicalist tool, was conceived of in these terms. If successful, it inspires workers with a sense of power; if unsuccessful, it impresses upon them the servility of their lot and the need for better organization and wider aims.
