On Nicos Poulantzas . (In Radical history Review).
By : Anders STEPHANSON - Thursday March 18, 2010
Nicos Poulantzas The suicide of Nicos Poulantzas has received scant, if any, attention in the United States. This is not so much because Poulantzas committed an unthinkable act by jumping out a window, an act which is not easily confronted by anyone. The reason for the silence is instead more forthright than that: though his work was emblematically known here, it never had the enormous theoretical and political impact it did in Europe. It is indeed hard to make clear for an American (...)

From Voter Apathy to Voter Activism!
By : Publius - Monday January 18, 2010
Those who can’t be bothered to go out and vote on election day or think their vote won’t make a difference not only miss the point but also miss a prime opportunity to voice their dissatisfaction. In the Western world, we preach and proselytize the gospel of democracy and even try to force it on other countries (whether they like it or not), providing expertise and money to set up a framework for democratic elections. Over history, people across the world have died (or put their (...)

The French Government Must Recognize the Null Vote/Spoiled Ballot
By : I'm-Hotep - Saturday January 16, 2010
2 comments
Most people fall into two camps on the issue of voting. Either they believe that it is one’s civic duty to vote in an election or they shun elections altogether. Not bothering to vote is a sign of apathy while voting for the sake of voting can put the wrong party in power. Not many voters are even aware that a third option is available to them: the null vote! “Votez Nul” is a very straightforward French campaign to have a defaced ballot or null vote recognized for what it (...)

COMOROS: THIRTY FOUR YEARS OF LOW BLOWS TO LEGALIZE AN INJUSTICE
By : françoise - Wednesday November 11, 2009
The aim of France to keep the 3 other islands of the Comoros (Anjuan, Mayotte and Moheli), a chronic destabilization is to guide the political concerns of Comoros on issues related to their "survival" as the return of Mayotte in its natural environment. The draft of the Comoros in a humiliating poverty is a factor of satisfaction for France, because it stifles any hint of demands on the return of Mayotte in its natural fold. For many of the Comoros, Mayotte claim the project is absolutely (...)

Couples arrived with children while bespectacled record-store geeks and a bald guy in a dashiki made toasts with Kronenbourg beers. Close to the stage, a (...)

French Call for the total prohibition of the use of nonlethal weapons by law enforcement

To the Attention of : THE PRESIDENT OF THE FRENCH REPUBLIC I would like to thank all those who have come forward in solidarity, who have passed on information and who have allowed us to speak of these acts of unacceptable violence. Two messages have reinforced my conviction that nonlethal weapons should be outlawed. The first message comes from the father of a high school student in Nantes who lost his right eye in similar circumstances. He summed up the report that was made by the CNDS (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
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 (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
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. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

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 (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. 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 (...)
