1 Quiero agradecer especialmente al GRESCH y a los organizadores del Coloquio “Chile de país modelado (...) 1 Para nadie es un misterio que la experticia en política se ha profesionalizado de manera acelerada durante los últimos 30 años en Chile 1 . En un régimen democrático moderno ya no es posible imaginar a un parlamentario, subsecretario, ministro o incluso un alcalde tomando decisiones sólo sobre la base de su propia experiencia, experticia, acudiendo a lo que se solía denominar como “olfato político”. Por el contrario, hoy en día tanto las autoridades públicas como los partidos políticos elaboran sus programas y toman sus decisiones a través de la mediación de expertos en distintas materias, la mayor parte de la veces ajenos al aparato público tradicional.
The airline industry is powered by high-octane jet fuel. Nothing else combines the power and lightness required for air travel. The problem is, as it becomes scarce it becomes more costly. Airline industry experts believe that within a decade or two, airfare is going to be astronomically expensive.
Despite your beliefs when you were 15, you can't really know everything. As a result, you often have to listen to the advice of experts as you form opinions. What kind of expert opinion has the biggest influence on your attitudes? You might think that you are most inclined to be affected by experts who agree with you. After all, there is a lot of research on that suggests that we tend to focus on information that confirms our hypotheses about the world. An interesting paper in the January, 2012 issue of by Jason Clark, Duane Wegener, Meara Habashi, and Abigail Evans suggests that the opposite may be true.
Batman: Anarky is a 1999 trade paperback published by DC Comics . The book collects prominent appearances of Anarky , a comic book character created by Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle . Although all of the collected stories were written by Alan Grant, various artists contributed to individual stories. Dual introductions were written by the creators—both of whom introduce the character and give insight into their role in Anarky's creation and development. Featured as an antagonist in various Batman comics during the '90s, stories based on the character were highly thematic, political, and philosophical in tone.

Fernando Sánchez-Dragó , escritor y periodista, en una entrevista para el programa de la cadena Cope El CalidosCOPE, este miércoles: “El movimiento de Lenin en San Petersburgo fue un movimiento de asambleísmo. El bolchevismo era asambleísmo. Las camisas negras de Mussolini eran asambleísmo. Las camisas pardas de Hitler eran asambleísmo .
Printer-friendly version An introduction to the ideas of Bakunin, one of the founders of anarchist thought and movement. Undoubtedly, Bakunin is one of the key anarchist thinkers and activists of the 19th century. Building upon the federalist and libertarian socialist ideas of his friend Pierre-Joseph Proudhon as well as those in the European labour movement, Bakunin shaped anarchism into its modern form.
Printer-friendly version Yes. Anarchists have always argued that real socialism cannot be created using a state. The basic core of the argument is simple. Socialism implies equality, yet the state signifies inequality - inequality in terms of power.
Amigos de Todo Marketing Politico , hoy compartimos con ustedes algo realmente memorable y que no ha perdido vigencia. A continuación verán la traducción de un panfleto de técnicas de Propaganda de G. Stark .
The top 1 % of USA citizens control nearly 35% of the country's wealth and 22% of American children live in poverty . President Obama calls income inequality a defining issue and Mitt Romney tells us that the nearly half of the US population who don’t make enough to pay income taxes are failing to take responsibility for themselves. Even without election season and a flurry of statistics to remind us, the vast majority of us realize that that the USA is a pretty unequal nation . It also should not be surprising that for much of recent human history, material wealth has not been equally divided amongst members of a society. But has it ever? Is inequality part of our evolutionary heritage?
El gobierno ha hecho en esta última semana como propia su desaprobación al “asambleísmo”, concepto sobre el cual han responsabilizado la inexistencia de acuerdo entre los pobladores de Aysén y el gobierno, sumando desde hoy martes, a la ciudad de Calama ¿Qué entiende el gobierno cuando habla de asambleísmo? ¿Es esto negativo para los movimientos ciudadanos? ¿Confunde el gobierno la existencia de asambleas con el asambleísmo? ¿Confunde un síntoma con una enfermedad?
Noam Chomsky elaboró la lista de las “10 Estrategias de Manipulación” a través de los medios. En su libro “ Armas Silenciosas para Guerras Tranquilas ” Chomsky hace referencia a ese escrito en su decálogo de las “Estrategias de Manipulación”. El elemento primordial del control social es la estrategia de la distracción, que consiste en desviar la atención del público de los problemas importantes y de los cambios decididos por las elites políticas y económicas, mediante la técnica del diluvio o inundación de continuas distracciones y de informaciones insignificantes. La estrategia de la distracción es igualmente indispensable para impedir al público interesarse por los conocimientos esenciales en el área de la ciencia, la economía, la psicología, la neurobiología o la cibernética.
People around the world seem to agree on which leaders possess that mysterious X-factor leadership quality: charisma . Jesus and Buddha had it, and so did Churchill, De Gaulle, FDR, Gandhi, JFK, Reagan and Clinton.
A great way to teach our students important theories and concepts in psychology is through the use of fiction. Drawing from plots and themes of well-known novels or movies can help them gain insight into important psychological phenomena such as memory ( Memento ), autism ( Rain Man ), leadership ( Braveheart ) or prejudice ( The Color Purple ). I remember, as a psychology undergraduate student, being taught a class on Group Dynamics with the aid of William Golding's famous novel Lord of the Flies . The story is about a group of British school boys stuck on a desert island who try to govern themselves with disastrous results. Week by week we would discuss important social psychological concepts such as power, status, leadership, conformity, and intergroup conflict and connect them to important events happening in the book as the story unfolded. The Hunger Games is the modern equivalent of Lord of the Flies .
Altruism has been thought of as an ego defense, a form of sublimation in which a person copes with his anxiety by stepping outside himself and helping others. By focusing on the needs of others, people in altruistic vocations such as medicine or teaching may be able to permanently push their needs into the background, and so never have to address or even to acknowledge them. Conversely, people who care for a disabled or elderly person may experience profound anxiety and distress when this role is suddenly removed from them. Altruism as an ego defence should be distinguished from true altruism—one being primarily a means to cover up uncomfortable feelings and the other being primarily a means to some external end such as alleviating hunger or poverty. However, many psychologists and philosophers have argued that there is, in fact, no such thing as true altruism.
