Create New If our concept of ideology remains the classic one in which the illusion is located in knowledge, then today's society must appear post-ideological:
Simon Kaleab Selam all, Barry Obozobama in There was discrimination and hardship and poverty. But, like you, they no doubt found inspiration in all those who had come before them. And they were able to muster faith that, here in America, they might build a better life and give their children something more.
There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less.
But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.
What we all see is a weapon that is perfectly made to eliminate an enemy Human being in tanks or what ever he is not alien from this Earth. Yes we human being made weapon before medicine, which is very sad truth.
We have been in the habit of looking to cancel each other for such long time.
Some of us are hell bent to kill the truth just for the sake of our own ideals, on the other side most poor humble men has no the proper gifts to mislead or even lie but stay there and cheatedagain a sad one but truth. Most of you feel that you are in the right mind to judge people and your conscious is very clean that you admit before hand, again this is open for debate.
The implication of such article with such picture needs a tiny questionvery very tiny one. I give you credit for casting shadow to the inconvenient truth but the duty you own to your respective people must be questionedbut what ever it is ,The real issue remains like a ghost.
So sit down and reply to each other but first sit down and make yourself comfortable because as i have seen you for yearsi mean for years.
Trumpism, in matter of truth, is the reinvigoration of Neoliberalism in its most flagrant come back of unfettered demonstrative grab of wealth and power. It is the coming back in vengeance of the once thought extinct Libertarianism.
Trumpism is not a novelty. Trumpism is what America is and what America had always been except for a brief hiatus of all exceptional economic prosperous four decades post the Second World War. It happened by default as the increased and expanding economic activity dictated bringing to the fold new factors of production, temporarily accommodate collective bargaining, giving in the process rise to the Middle Class and greatly economically benefiting the hanging on the side, the fringes of the general public, the none elite majority.
However, to better appreciate the background of the rise of Trumpism and its wide appeal to the White American Supremacists and to their kin of the Christian Rights, one needs to appreciate its immense nostalgic appeal to the ethos of unbridled long shared by the American enterprise that was increasingly been glossed over by the necessities of accommodating the requisites of changing demographics and the maintained appearances of civility of shared values with the emerging more egalitarian new European economic and political experiences.
For one to better grasp a better understanding of Trumpism brandishing much of the Unfettered Wild Capitalism ethos of a recent past, one need to correctly judge Trumpism as the normal outgrowth of its immediate kin of Libertarianism and Neoliberalism.
Trumpism is an elitist doctrine much belied in this time of age of changing realities of changing demographics and the imminent global and universal challenges of a converging world and fast deteriorating environment.
Interestingly, and despite all the niceties attached to smartly crafted wordings of the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights back two and a half centuries ago, the newly stitched together 13 colonies of growing to the current 50 states in the span of less than one and a half centuries, all that did not happen by accident or natural growth.
We are at it again but of course I am not complaining—far from it. Yes, you guessed right, it is about UBI. The story it seems is not written by a staff member or a freelancer but by a guy who has given his heart to it where one is not tempted to squeeze out conspiracy or cynical feelings of it.
The writer claims rightly and proudly I might add to have been donating to a charity organization—GiveDirectly since whose sole motto is not only to eradicate absolute poverty but to bust and debunk the age old myth where the poor are taken for folks who can not be trusted. Consider they did and they have already started the project in a small village in Kenya where the average household lives off on 3 to 5 dollars a week.
GiveDirectly will give every household 22 US dollars every week for the next 12 years. Obviously critics have spread their concerns from giving a lump-sum to giving material support as in cattle and plows instead of monthly payments. Moreover, one of the talking points if in fact UBI carries negative consequences seems to have been defeated when heavy guns as in economists from MIT and Princeton found that UBI to the contrary reduces alcohol consumption and drug use including resorting to criminal activities as well.
Amde Selam Paulos, Yes thank you for the heads up. So is The New Yorker. I am constantly surprised where this comes up. Yes, UBI is a done deal — at least conceptually — it looks like.
It is telling that a few weeks ago I saw a news item where Elon Musk spoke about UBI in terms of an economic reality for which there is elite consensus at least of the lefty billionaire and economist kindbut that what he finds more concerning is what people will do with their time.
If only because of the nature of injection of external cash into an economy. What was remarkable about the Economist article I posted a few weeks ago was the profound effect that what we consider pittance on the really poor in India.
Not to propose to make our Kenyan brothers and sisters into guinea pigs, but I hope there are a lot of good studies out of it. What I would like to see in this forum for example, is some ideas or questions on what our neck of the woods would be like in such a future where even for the industrialized countries, employment is a minority activity.Apr 20, · Hemingway defined the Code Hero as "a man who lives correctly, following the ideals of honor, courage and endurance in a world that is sometimes chaotic, often stressful, and always painful." The Code Hero measures himself by how well they handle the difficult situations that life throws at attheheels.com: Resolved.
The concept of "heroism," like so many others, is a high-level abstraction--it is primarily a moral concept--and requires a rational philosophical system, including the principle of mind-body integration, as it proper base.
JSTOR is a digital library of academic journals, books, and primary sources. Hemingway had the Western Front; Orwell, the Spanish Civil War; and for Julian Langness, a young American of Norwegian stock, the defining conflict of our age is the one that is about to start raging throughout Western Europe between Moslems and the indigenous Europeans themselves.
This paper analyzes heroism as central theme in Hemingway’s work. Most of his novels are primarily studies of death or simply researches regarding the lost generation. Jul 31, · An Online Tagalog - English Dictionary Learn Tagalog or Filipino Language for free.
