Hegemony

Hegemony
In the 19th century, hegemony came to denote the "Social or cultural predominance or ascendancy; predominance by one group within a society or milieu". Later, it could be used to mean "a group or regime which exerts undue influence within a society."[7] Also, it could be used for the geopolitical and the cultural predominance of one country over others; from which was derived hegemonism, as in the idea that the Great Powers meant to establish European hegemony over Asia and Africa.[8] The Marxist theory of cultural hegemony, associated particularly with Antonio Gramsci, is the idea that the ruling class can manipulate the value system and mores of a society, so that their view becomes the world view (Weltanschauung): in Terry Eagleton's words, 'Gramsci normally uses the word hegemony to mean the ways in which a governing power wins consent to its rule from those it subjugates'.[9] Etymology Historical examples 8th–1st centuries BCE 1st–14th centuries CE 15th–19th centuries 20th century

Cultural hegemony The Communist intellectual Antonio Gramsci (1891–1937) developed the theory of cultural hegemony to further the establishment of a working-class worldview. Background[edit] Etymology[edit] The etymologic and historical evolution of the Greek word hegemony, and of its denotations, has proceeded thus: Historical[edit] New Order (Nazism) The New Order (German: Neuordnung) or the New Order of Europe (German: Neuordnung Europas) was the political order which Nazi Germany wanted to impose on the conquered areas under its dominion. The establishment of the New Order had already begun long before the start of World War II, but was publicly proclaimed by Adolf Hitler in 1941: The year 1941 will be, I am convinced, the historical year of a great European New Order.[1] The Führer gave expression to his unshakable conviction that the Reich will be the master of all Europe. We shall yet have to engage in many fights, but these will undoubtedly lead to most wonderful victories. From there on the way to world domination is practically certain.

Praxis From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Praxis may refer to: Education[edit] Dollar Imperialism, 2015 Edition Paris. “The dollar is our currency, but it’s your problem.” This is what US Treasury Secretary John Connally said to his counterparts in the Rome G-10 meeting in November, 1971, shortly after the Nixon administration ended the dollar’s convertibility into gold and shifted the international monetary system into a global floating exchange rate regime. The world has been suffering from this “problem” ever since the US obtained the “exorbitant privilege” of issuing the world’s reserve and trade currency under the Bretton Woods system after WWII. The Fed effectively acts as the world’s central bank, but sets monetary policy only in its own interest.

Tryphon, Respicius, and Nympha Saints Tryphon (Trypho), Respicius, and Nympha (Ninfa) are Christian saints who were formerly celebrated jointly on 10 November in the liturgical calendar of the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church from the eleventh century until the twentieth.[1] Saint Tryphon continues to be celebrated (separately) on 1 February, and the 14 February on both the Orthodox liturgical calendar and the Roman Calendar of Saints. Saint Tryphon[edit] Saint Tryphon is said to have been born at Kampsade (Campsada, in Phrygia, now Turkey,[2] and as a boy took care of geese. His name is derived from the Greek τρυφη (tryphe) meaning "softness, delicacy". He acquired fame as a healer, especially of animals, and is considered one of the Holy Unmercenaries, particularly invoked on farms.[3] During the Decian persecution he was taken to Nicaea about the year 250 and was tortured in a horrible manner.

NATO is blatantly building up its forces in Eastern Europe, including the Black Sea and the Baltic Sea areas. Its operational and combat training activities are gaining in scale.”

Why Russia and China are united by more than pipeline politics The recent multi-billion euro deal to pipe gas from Russia to China signals shifting geopolitical and climate hedge bets more than it does a new anti-Western alliance, argues Shaun Breslin Shaun Breslin is a professor of politics and international affairs at the University of Warwick Despite the recent focus on China’s attempts to obtain overseas oil resources to fuel its continued growth, burning coal – either directly or to produce electricity – remains by far the biggest source of Chinese energy. Of course, burning so much coal is a major source of Chinese CO2 emissions, and has contributed to the “airpocalypse” in Beijing and elsewhere that have elevated pollution to the top of lists of popular concerns. As part of what Premier Li Keqiang called a “war on pollution”, there has been a renewed focus on finding replacements for coal; and the deal with Gazprom to build a pipeline to provide cleaner gas in a thirty year project clearly forms part of this environmental agenda.

How to Subdue Russia: The West Paves The Road To War With Lies Official statements from the Russian government indicate that the president and foreign minister continue to rely on the good will of “our Western partners” to work out a reasonable diplomatic solution to the trouble in Ukraine caused by Washington. Not only is there no evidence of this good will in Western capitals, the hostile measures against Russia are increasing. Moreover, hostile measures are on the rise even though their main effect is to disadvantage Europe. For example, the socialist president of France has followed Washington’s orders and refused to deliver a ship that it owes to Russia under contract. The news reports are so incompetent that they do not say whether Russia has paid for the ship or whether payment was awaiting completion. If Russia has not already paid, then the failure to deliver will harm whoever financed the construction of the ship.
