Anarchism Anarchism The central tendency of anarchism as a social movement has been represented by anarcho-communism and anarcho-syndicalism, with individualist anarchism being primarily a literary phenomenon[25] which nevertheless did have an impact on the bigger currents[26] and individualists have also participated in large anarchist organisations.[27][28] Many anarchists oppose all forms of aggression, supporting self-defense or non-violence (anarcho-pacifism),[29][30] while others have supported the use of some coercive measures, including violent revolution and propaganda of the deed, on the path to an anarchist society.[31] Etymology and terminology[edit] The term anarchism is a compound word composed from the word anarchy and the suffix -ism,[32] themselves derived respectively from the Greek ἀναρχία, i.e. anarchy[33][34][35] (from ἄναρχος, anarchos, meaning "one without rulers";[36] from the privative prefix ἀν- (an-, i.e. "without") + ἀρχός, archos, i.e. History[edit] Origins[edit]
Early life and education[edit] He then acted as a minister at Ware, Stowmarket and Beaconsfield. At Stowmarket the teachings of the French philosophers were brought before him by a friend, Joseph Fawcett, who held strong republican opinions. Godwin came to London in 1782, still nominally as a minister, to regenerate society with his pen — a real enthusiast, who shrank theoretically from no conclusions from the premises which he laid down. Early writing[edit] His first published work was an anonymous Life of Lord Chatham (1783). Enquiry Concerning Political Justice and Caleb Williams[edit] Godwin augmented the influence of Political Justice with the publication of a novel that proved equally popular, Things as They Are; or, The Adventures of Caleb Williams. Political writing[edit] Godwin, consistent in his theory and stubborn in his practice, practically lived in secret for 30 years because of his reputation.

Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia (10 January 1859 – 13 October 1909)[1] (known as Francisco Ferrer y Guardia in Spanish and often simply as Francisco Ferrer) was a Spanish anarchist. Life[edit] He was born in Alella (a small town near Barcelona) to Roman Catholic parents. He was sent to work on a Barcelona firm at the age of 15. The owner of the firm was an anti-cleric and is said to have had a great influence on Ferrer. A follower of Spanish republican leader Manuel Ruiz Zorrilla, Ferrer was exiled to Paris with his wife and children in 1885. In 1901 he returned to Spain and opened the Escuela Moderna (The Modern School) to teach middle-class children (then) radical social values. Early in the summer of 1908, after his release from jail, he wrote the story of the Modern School. References[edit] External links[edit] Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia

Our society is made up of people who are perceived as high status, and people who are perceived as having lower status. A more popular name for a high status individual is an “alpha male” or “alpha female”. Why do some people exude high status whilst others exude low status? First of all, let’s be clear on what we mean by “status” Status as a concept refers to how valuable a person is seen to be in society. High social status implies a person is valuable and dominant in their role in society, often taking on the role of leaders. A low social status person has an air of being more dispensable in their social role, although often they play important supporting roles in society. Internal vs External Status There are two important levels of status: internal status, and external status. Internal status is your personality-driven, inborn tendency of behaviour. It’s the internal status that really matters. What status am I? How ways of speaking can give away your status: 1.) 2.) Related Products Why do I have high or low social status?

Cirque de la Symphonie | Arts Centre Melbourne Orchestras have sometimes unkindly been compared with a three-ring circus. Well, here’s the chance to realise that simile. Cirque de la Symphonie brings the MSO together with a host of international circus performers, including aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, jugglers, balancers, and strongmen. Do not expect the first violins or brass section to down instruments in order to shin up a rope or drop into a safety net (there are health-andsafety limits, after all).

Honoré de Balzac Honoré de Balzac Honoré de Balzac (/ˈbɔːlzæk, ˈbæl-/;[2] French: [ɔ.nɔ.ʁe d(ə) bal.zak], born Honoré Balzac,[1] 20 May 1799 – 18 August 1850) was a French novelist and playwright. The novel sequence La Comédie Humaine, which presents a panorama of post-Napoleonic French life, is generally viewed as his magnum opus. Owing to his keen observation of detail and unfiltered representation of society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders of realism in European literature.[3] He is renowned for his multi-faceted characters; even his lesser characters are complex, morally ambiguous and fully human. Inanimate objects are imbued with character as well; the city of Paris, a backdrop for much of his writing, takes on many human qualities. His writing influenced many famous writers, including the novelists Émile Zola, Charles Dickens, Gustave Flaubert, Jack Kerouac and Henry James, as well as important philosophers such as Friedrich Engels.

About the research Professor Geert Hofstede conducted one of the most comprehensive studies of how values in the workplace are influenced by culture. He analysed a large database of employee value scores collected within IBM between 1967 and 1973. The data covered more than 70 countries, from which Hofstede first used the 40 countries with the largest groups of respondents and afterwards extended the analysis to 50 countries and 3 regions. In the 2010 edition of the book Cultures and Organizations: Software of the Mind, scores on the dimensions are listed for 76 countries, partly based on replications and extensions of the IBM study on different international populations and by different scholars. Culture only exists by comparison The country scores on the dimensions are relative, as we are all human and simultaneously we are all unique. These relative scores have been proven to be quite stable over time. The evolution of the dimensions More information Dimensions - Geert Hofstede
How the Kochs launched Joni Ernst Joni Ernst was surprised to receive an invitation in the summer of 2013 that she later credited with starting her meteoric rise to the U.S. Senate. Ernst was then a little-known Iowa state senator and lieutenant colonel in the National Guard who was considering a long-shot campaign for the GOP nomination for U.S. Story Continued Below But Ernst was being watched closely by allies of the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, who saw in her an advocate for their brand of free-market, libertarian-infused conservatism. Ernst later told POLITICO she had no idea "how my name came through those channels." Until now, little has been known about the secretive role played by the Kochs' donors and operatives in boosting Ernst. But the network's financial support for Ernst ― detailed here for the first time ― offers the first signs of a move into GOP primaries. To date, the Koch network’s election-season spending has almost exclusively benefited Republicans. Former Mississippi Gov.
YouTube/CNN Last year, when Donald Trump and his small band of political advisers were considering whether the celebrity pink-slipper should run for president, there was one factor they did not dwell on: Trump’s obvious negatives as a candidate. His bankruptcies and bad business deals that screwed creditors and contractors, his marital infidelities, his ties to mob-linked figures, his long history of crude and rude remarks, his tendency to engage in mean-spirited feuds, his racist birther crusade against President Barack Obama, and his arrogant, egotistic, bombastic and bullying public persona would all supply tons of material for opposition researchers. Yet Trump and his crew were not concerned, according to a Trump aide at that time. Their theory was simple: With Trump's name ID close to 100 percent, most voters had already processed Trump—the good, the bad—and had come to a conclusion about him. His extreme behavior is not a bug. Trump operates in a fact-free zone. Donald Trump and the Politics of Being an Asshole

After the Election: ‘What a Pathetic Thing Is Decadence’ Today is finally Election Day, mercifully. Our tireless politics team is live-blogging events throughout the day and into the night. Over the past several weeks, scores and scores of your emails have poured in, covering a wide array of campaign topics, so here’s one final roundup of your smart opinions and analyses as the polls open this morning. Most recently we had a roundup of reader reaction to the Comey aftermath, and a new reader makes an interesting point here: FBI agents ran to the nearest reporter to leak about potentially damaging material about Clinton. Another reader similarly wonders: Why is there no MSM coverage of Trump having to face Judge Curiel on November 28 over fraud and racketeering charges for Trump University? This next reader quotes Fallows in “2016: The Year Latinos Saved America? “Latino Americans have long had higher-than-average rates of service and sacrifice in the U.S. military.
