Going green at home is something everyone who watches television has probably heard plenty about. Indonesia is marred with corruption as if it has become part of the “culture”. Indonesia ranks 34th by the 2014 World Corruption Perception Index. It’s even below some African countries such as Nigeria, Zambia and Trinidad. If you compare that to Denmark, which was ranked number 1 as a nation with the lowest perception of corruption, Indonesia still has a long way to go. There is almost zero confidence among the public for government officials and law-makers. On a brighter note though, Governor Basuki has somewhat shown progress in eradicating corruption via the use of innovative technological ideas, transparency and bureaucracy overhaul (see my previous article, “Jakarta Governor Basuki T.Purnama and His Social Programs”). Lenin defined himself as a Socialist until he seized power in Russia, after which he was a self-described Communist. Each person in such a society would provide the commonweal according to their ability; and each person will be supplied according to their needs. The optimistic positivism of structuralism’s collectivistic goals, along with many individuals’ faith in the paradigm of social structures referred to as Modernism”, were thrown into question by the political and social events of the 20th century: …the great impact of the Second World War in France elevated issues of politics and ethical responsibility arising from questions about humanism, the self, and power.” (Silva 2012:564). People began to question the assumptions that were believed to have caused the widespread injustices and inequalities which were becoming associated with Modernism. Among those who were eventually defined as Post Structuralists, the individuals who began in the 1960’s to attack Structuralism’s basic tenets had themselves previously been included among the coterie of Structuralists, including Foucault, Derrida, Althusser, and Pierre Bourdieu (Deleuze 2002:170-192). Joining in the siege of Structuralism were such notable intellectuals as literary critic Roland Barthes, among others (Lavers 1982). Though some proponents of Structuralism remain, exemplified by the work of Jacques Lacan, the dominant trend in the French intellectual establishment from the 1960’s onward was reacting against such universalizing meta-narratives”, and that trend was called Post Structuralism. Whatever system we have of governing ourselves, has become a costly one. That is because, governing ourselves, the one that does not directly make any value addition to our society, in fact takes a lion’s share of the efforts, both from the side of government and from the side of citizens. Such a complex structure came into existence when the task of governance was simpler and more straight-forward. In the early society, where neither there was the need nor the people had the intent, or the opportunities, of gainful occupation, activities of governance were perceived as something welcome, as well as necessary.

Those on the right usually want most of the government to be at the state and local levels, keeping both taxes and spending programs closer to the people. In this way, most of the tax revenues are spent locally, just as most of the projects are for the benefit of only those same people. They want a smaller federal government, with lower taxes and lower spending, that would focus on only a few projects at the national level, and few of which would include social programs. The common-law legal system forms a major part of the law of many countries, especially those with a history as British territories or colonies. It is notable for its inclusion of extensive non-statutory law reflecting a consensus of centuries of judgements by working jurists. Answer – In a civil case, the defendant’s written response to the plaintiff’s complaint. It must be filed within a specified period of time, and it either admits to or (more typically) denies the factual or legal basis for liability. Laos has many ties with other socialist states and runs the majority of the economy. However, the creation of a publicly owned sector raised the question of the administration and utilisation of public property. During the first phase (1946-50) the problem was solved by entrusting it to the state as the entity most qualified to represent the interests of society at large, best placed to reconcile the interests of different social groups and classes and of present and future generations, and most likely to achieve rapid development of the forces of production through national economic planning” (Uvalić, R., 1964, p. 237). A powerful state-operated economy was created, centralised in the hands of the state as the representative of the whole nation. Disadvantages of socialism:Elimination of individualism and non existance of economic and political freedom leads to lack of compition which hampers the overall growth of the country. In 1960, Castro confiscated most of the land in Cuba, stole all businesses and industrial plants owned by foreigners, and forbid competing political parties. He had lied to the Cuban people that he was going to restore democracy. 50 years later, they are still waiting for its restoration. Serviced and virtual offices also allow you to focus only on your business growth as the rest is taken care of. These offices have short leasing periods, hence offering flexibility to either expand or reduce size. Businesses using serviced and virtual offices experience increased productivity and efficient operations leading to it achieving its goals. When a business is moved to a different place, it maintains its mailing address. A serviced office can also offer privacy if needed by a business.

A Socialist desires enslavement to a State Master that controls his life, owns everything, dictates what everyone will do and when. He does not want economic freedom because he does not want the moral responsibility to develop his own abilities to provide for himself and his family. You may ask my political views, of course. My answer is already there in the comment you have quoted, is that not clear. My political views are very simple, power serves itself. Done, dusted, finito. My view is that politics is politics, I do not side with any party or manifesto or system. In the United States, lawyers typically earn between $45,000 and $160,000 per year, although earnings vary by age and experience, practice setting, sex, and race. 176 177 178 179 Solo practitioners typically earn less than lawyers in corporate law firms but more than those working for state or local government. In her essay called Direct Action, de Cleyre writes that the difference between anarchists and the people struggling for suffrage is that they’re using anarchist tactics, but only instrumentally. They’re not actually signed up to self-liberation, but only to protesting. She doesn’t deprecate suffrage campaigners, but she says that the only way you can really secure your rights is by continually using direct action, on a daily basis. In the essay The Gates of Freedom” she writes: They have rights who dare maintain them.” We can judge social systems by the rights that they grant to people, but in the end, the value of rights lies in the challenge the oppressed make in struggling for justice, not in settling for a set of arrangements. A judge’s directions to the jury before it begins deliberations regarding the factual questions it must answer and the legal rules that it must apply. Spanish syndicalism In Spain the syndicalist current merged with the much older anarchist stream to create the strongest and the most militant syndicalist union center to function anywhere, one which endured after syndicalism everywhere else had spent its force. The National Confederation of Labor (CNT) had its chief center in Barcelona, where it drew strength from Catalan resistance to Castilian centralization in the state and in the Socialist party and from resentment with management intransigence and weak governmental protection of workers. Harvey understands the uselessness of street fights that aren’t connected to larger, confident organizations and movements, as well as goals that shape the tactics. But the insurrectionists have absconded with this occasional tactic of social movements and elevated it to the level of ideological principle. Rather than emboldening and empowering the mass forces whose self-activity are at the heart of any successful struggle, these elitist, provocative tactics accomplish little more than offering an excuse for the state to justify its violence against social movements.
