US to quit UN Human Rights Council
By : Amerikagulag - Wednesday March 7, 2007
The United States will not seek a seat on the UN Human Rights Council, senior officials said Tuesday, asserting the body had lost its credibility with repeated attacks on Israel and a failure to confront other rights abusers. http://rawstory.com/news/afp/US_ref... Considering that Israel is the biggest violator of UN Resolutions on the planet, perhaps the UNHRC’s concerns are warranted. On issues of credibility, the US might be well advised to ceeck it’s own since it has (...)

Ideas: The Hatred Within Democracy Unmasked by Adorno
By : Grégoire Chamayou - Monday March 5, 2007
By Grégoire Chamayou In the United States during the 1950s, Adorno was exploring the mental and social landscape favorable to implanting antidemocratic ideas. The Authoritarian Personality, by Theodore Wiesengrund Adorno, translated from the English by Hélène Frappat. Éditions Allia, 2007, 440 pages, 25 euros. Why do people of the same social background adopt different and even opposite political opinions? A seemingly banal answer would be saying that it is because they do not have the (...)

Is Capital Punishment a Solution?
By : Solve et Coagula - Saturday December 30, 2006
2 comments
Is Capital Punishment a Solution? "Capital punishment, the death sentence, is a frequent topic of discussion. Judges, psychiatrists and sociologists give us the statistics and talk about their observations and conclusions on radio and television programmes, and public opinion remains divided. Some think that the worst criminals should be executed so as to deter those who are tempted to imitate them; others retort that the fear of death has never deterred a criminal and, above all, that no (...)

Can any impeachment of Bush stand up to the rule of law with a changed Constitution? By Mary MacElveen November 11, 2006 While some polls are beginning to ask Americans how they feel concerning the impeachment of President Bush as evident in this MSNBC poll, much should be taken into account before we even think of said proceedings.

Pain and the Bill of Rights By RML You see, if we have a problem, it would be that we are not aware of what has been taken from us. Because we are not experiencing the actual pain from the actual event (like using a local, and in some cases, general, anesthetic to block pain) we fail to feel, sense, or see what is happening to us. Is there any hard and fast statistical data that shows the percentage of Americans on meds which dull, anesthetize, or block various physical and psychological (...)

America was born on July 4th, 1976 and died on October 17th, 2006. For a democracy, she died a perilous death at the young age of 230 years old. For six long years she screamed out in pain and while there were some protests, a great majority just stood by (...)

Anomalies, Prisons, and Geophysics: How Governments Use Data and How to Stop Them
By : chycho - Friday October 6, 2006
A common definition of an anomaly is "a deviation from the common rule, type, arrangement, or form." This definition, however, can be simplified by stating that an anomaly "is a deviation from specific parameters." The defining characteristic of an anomaly is that it can only exist in a comparative setting, implying that it can only be detected within a certain data set. Once a data set is obtained then parameters can be specified to filter out so called anomalies for evaluation. Depending (...)

AMERICAN MORALITY SCAM, PART II
By : David R. Hoffman, Pravda.Ru Legal Editor - Monday September 25, 2006

In a previous PRAVDA.Ru article entitled AMERICAN MORALITY SCAM (August 8, 2006), I discussed how demagogues, liars and religious hypocrites confine their definition of “morality” to issues involving human sexuality, which, in turn, enables them to ignore, rationalize and excuse the economic exploitation, and even the abuse, torture and murder, of their fellow human beings. This tactic is successful for two reasons: 1). There are diverse categories of morality-legal, medical, (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
