A SPEECH FOR THE LIBERTY OF UNLICENSED PRINTING
TO THE PARLIAMENT OF ENGLAND
This is true liberty, when free-born men, Having to advise the public, may speak free,Which he who can, and will, deserves high praise; Who neither can, nor will, may hold his peace: What can be juster in a state than this?
New! Anarchism and Other Essays by Emma Goldman
Propagandism is not, as some suppose, a "trade," because
nobody will follow a "trade" at which you may work with
the industry of a slave and die with the reputation of a
mendicant. The motives of any persons to pursue such a
profession must be different from those of trade, deeper
than pride, and stronger than interest. (GEORGE JACOB HOLYOAKE).
Marxism as a Science: Refuting Karl Popper,
Now, in this connection, I want to speak to the attempt by Karl Popper to discredit and attack Marxism.1 Popper claims that Marxism is not a science because it is not falsifiable. Or to put it another way, Popper asserts that Marxism is in effect a religious worldview, which makes historical prophecies; and when, as Popper asserts, these “prophecies” turn out to be false—when reality turns out differently than what has been “prophesied” by Marxism—then Marxists simply invent rationalizations to explain away the failure of their “prophecy.”

Nullifiers and Insurrectionists: America’s Antigovernment Tradition by Robert Westbrook
The author reviews a book about American’s attitude toward the government. The writer, Garry Wills, offers a catalog of the various forms taken by American distrust of government since the late 18th century, and ventures to debunk the historical myths that have sustained them. He argues for government as a necessary good.
Political Economy and the Economization of Politics by John B. Cobb, Jr.
While economic considerations dominate the political sphere, it should not be applied to the real world in which markets are only one part of the whole of social life. For most people, there are other goals in life besides acquiring goods and services. Values cannot be identified simply with what is desired, and society cannot accept the market alone as the basis for deciding which desires should be fulfilled. The economization of politics is extremely damaging to human society and the natural world, and if the process continues, it will be disastrous.
Religion and Liberty: From Vision to Politics by Michael Novak
The liberty of conscience transcends any and all political orders. Human freedom rooted in God declares that all states and all political orders are under God. States can crush or kill human beings, but they cannot alienate them from their responsibility to God and conscience.
The Old Question: Politics and Religion by Roger Shinn
Churches should be more cautious than individuals or groups of Christians in taking political stands. Christians, especially churches, should be more ready to make pronouncements on issues than on candidates—always recognizing that times come when issues and men are inseparable. Christian judgments should never stem solely from the clergy but should involve lay specialists with skill in public affairs.
Albert Camus: Political Moralist by William F. May
According to William May, Camus rejects political realism in both its conservative and revolutionary forms and summons man to a modesty, an honesty, and a decency that he believes to be within the reach of man—and certainly within the reach of Western man—as it recovers the best in the European revolutionary tradition. Camus argues, man overreaches himself, pretends to one sort of divinity or another, but concludes by justifying the violation of man.
New Politics and Not So New Politics by Amy Sherman
According to Sherman, one of the best things about Jim Wallis' book, The Soul of Politics, is that it calls us to listen to the people who live there as we reflect on the inner city's woes. One of the worst things about the book is that the author seems unwilling to hear all that they have to say. In his emphasis on the injustice of the system he allows the poor to escape taking personal responsibility, even though he exalts an increasing spiritual awareness and the activist role of the (mostly) black churches. When he moves to the problems of economic stagnation in the less developed countries his proposal for a "third way", transcending liberalism and conservatism, ignores the successes of market-friendly systems.

Africa, and Global Health
by Ronald Labonte, Ted Schrecker, David Sanders y Wilma Meeus
University of Cape Town Press/IDRC 2004
For most of the past century, the spread of mysterious, frightening diseases is something that has occurred mostly in poorer parts of the planet. Now that it is identified as primarily a ‘Third World’, especially African, condition, AIDS has briefly managed to make it to the highest level of political agendas, including the UN Security Council. But all in all, the G8 countries under scrutiny in this book have for decades lived as though immune to at least two of the biblical scourges – famine and pestilence.

With all but a handful of states now declaring themselves democratic, and with the number of more or less imperfect democracies on the rise, there seems to be
little urgency for understanding what drives authoritarian regimes. However, authoritarianism is resilient and manifold. There are about fifty
countries in the world today that are considered not free, and many more that
can only be considered as only partly free.

With all but a handful of states now declaring themselves democratic, and with the number of more or less imperfect democracies on the rise, there seems to be little urgency for understanding what drives authoritarian regimes. However, authoritarianism is resilient and manifold. There are about fifty countries in the world today that are considered not free, and many more that can only be considered as only partly free. The course offers a comparative outlook to the study of authoritarianism. It combines a theoretical reflection on why authoritarian regimes emerge, consolidate their power and change, with a study of empirical manifestations in various parts of the world, including post-communist Eurasia, post-colonial Africa, the Middle East and East Asia [...].

Vain Hopes, False Dreams, By Noam Chomsky
In the July/August issue of _Z_, several articles dealt with the deterioration of conditions of life in American society and the loss of hope, trust, or even expectations for the political system.
The Third World at Home, By Noam Chomsky (1993)
Studies of public opinion bring out other strands. A June 1992
Gallup poll found that 75% of the population do not expect life
to improve for the next generation of Americans--not too
surprising, given that real wages have been dropping for 20
years, with an accelerated decline under Reaganite
"conservatism," which also managed to extend the cloud over the college-educated.

Lifting the Curtain on the Invisible Government
By Henry Makow Ph.D. , July 31, 2002
[...] I haven't got all the pieces of the puzzle. But I believe modern history displays a long-term plan by dynastic banking families and their allies to create an Orwellian World dictatorship ("New World Order") in which wealth will be further concentrated, and human life will be further degraded.[...]
Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
[...] recent social theory has formulated a more precise concept of globalization than those typically offered by pundits. Although sharp differences continue to separate participants in the ongoing debate, most contemporary social theorists endorse the view that globalization refers to fundamental changes in the spatial and temporal contours of social existence [...]
Abstractions in the Declaratrion of the (American) Independence.
George Kennan , a life in the Foreign Service. By Wilson Miscamble
He explained that Stalin had succeeded "in proving that man’s degradation can be just as effectively ‘organized’ as his dignity; that contempt for the human individual can be made an acceptable and practicable basis for government; and that — whether or not it is possible to create a Heaven on earth — it is definitely possible and even profitable to create a Purgatory and a Hell."
