How Will the 99% Deal with 70 Million Psychopaths? Did you know that roughly one person in a hundred is clinically a psychopath? These individuals are either born with an emotional deficiency that keeps them from feeling bad about hurting others or they are traumatized early in life in a manner that causes them to become this way. With more than 7 billion people on the planet that means there are as many as 70,000,000 psychopaths alive today. Last year, the Occupy Movement drew a distinction between the top 1% and the remaining 99% — as distinguished by measures of wealth and income. The global economy we have today is built on a deep history of top-down hierarchies that promote domination and control. What can we do collectively to contain and manage this small minority of people who are driven by selfish motives with no concern for others? We can start to sketch out the solution by drawing on cross-disciplinary research about human nature and our evolutionary past. But why were there psychopaths in the first place?

Choctaw Nation How is America going to end? Who most likely to secede? In the American end times, our government will take one of two forms. One possibility is that federalism will give way to an all-powerful central government. (In yesterday's global-warming thought experiment, this was the climate strongman scenario.) The other option is decentralization—in the absence of a unifying national interest, the United States of America will fragment and be supplanted by regional governance. America was designed to avoid these two extremes—to keep the states and the national government in balance. Predictions of modern America's collapse usually say more about the speaker than about the country's condition. Eric Zuelow, a history professor at the University of New England and the editor of The Nationalism Project, argues that "loud voices" like Perry's bolster the country's strength. It wasn't always certain that the states would be as united as they are today. What kinds of countries fall apart? Peter Schiff is one of the recession's biggest winners.

WGI: World Governance Index (2009 Report) You can see here the 2011 Report: * The main article (English) (Français) (Español) (中文)* The WGI document (English) (Français)* The WGI Map (English) (Français) (Español) (中文) Developing a new world governance constitutes one of the major challenges of our times, perhaps the most important of all. With this in view, the Forum for a new World Governance launched a number of research projects intended to draw up a roadmap and a set a framework for our work. World governance, though touching upon several domains, is an essentially political phenomenon—in the noble sense of the term—as it ultimately concerns the collective organization of the management of the planet. Politics being above all a practical art, not a science, it relies on mainly qualitative research work. World governance is a new field of study and requires the greatest possible amount of contributions. The index developed here constitutes a first in World Governance. [1] Lieutenant Colonel (ret.)

Who is the 99% | notetoanon It is impossible and irresponsible to define or attempt to lead the 99% , except as individuals in collective opposition to the 1% . Only by defining the 1% can this opposition movement be understood. The 99% must be taken as anonymous and leaderless, as each individual need only share an opposition to the 1% and otherwise may differ in almost every other conceivable way. The modern conspiracy of the 1%, both planned and as product of laziness , is to rob Humanity of its diversity through their economic leadership and investment . Wall Street is a cult which worships money in the same way Pythagorean number cults once worshiped numbers, and have clearly and cleverly defined what each of our lives is worth . At the opening bell each of us is bought and sold in a low stakes video poker game, relative to the staggering income gap .

Secession: Getting It Right This Time Around by Jonathan M. Kolkey by Jonathan M. Kolkey by Jonathan M. Kolkey Recently by Jonathan M. For the first time since the year 1860, Secession appears to be a viable option, in part because all other arrangement for the operation of the American union are deemed by many to have failed. For starters, what do we already know about Secession? The Great Plains and Western Populists circa 1890, who waged a futile campaign for liberation against the "imperial" East, occasionally broached the subject of Secession. The 1990s provided the concrete examples abroad of the more-or-less successful breakup of the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia (Yugoslavia remains another story). This brings us back to the Secession Crisis of 1860–61, which came close to success. Meanwhile, when Southern Secession loomed, New York City, led by colorful Mayor Fernando Wood, sought to separate from the rump North and establish itself as an independent city-state. Naturally, Red Staters find this "kowtowing" more than a bit galling. Dr.

Sustainable Governance Indicators The Sustainable Governance Indicators (SGI), first published in spring 2009 and updated in 2011, analyze and compare the need for reform in Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) member countries, as well as each country's ability to respond to current social and political challenges. The project is designed to create a comprehensive data pool on government-related activities in the countries considered the world's most developed free-market democracies. In addition, it uses international comparisons to provide evidence-based input for reform-related public discourse taking place in these countries. The SGI are updated every two or three years.[1] Behind the project[edit] The Bertelsmann Foundation is an operational think tank that encourages social change and aims to foster sustainability by identifying nascent challenges early on and by developing strategies to face these issues.[2] Method[edit] SGI and the Transformation Index[edit] Infrastructure of the SGI[edit]
