A Beer With The Devil

by Darryl Harrison

Superb! Astonishing! Free Ebook A Beer With The Devil is in fact the ultimate installment of tales having just as much vitality, chaos and also at times hilarious. In case you haven’t learned your lesson based mostly on the detrimental mayhem these kinds of unhinged characters have created in this ebook I truly feel totally sorry for your ass my friend.

Fear Psychology

by George J Cole

Bundled with the Fear Psychology thesis is a review paper entitled “A Century of Psychoanalysis”, which discusses an old psychology that has not yet expired. It introduced ideas that were radical and alarming at a time when sexual matters were not for public discussion, but what was probably more alarming was the concept of 'unconscious' motivation of behavior. This aspect of the theory tends to have been forgotten or ignored....

How to Teach Children to be Sex Offenders

by Jane Gilgun

This small book outlines steps parents can take to teach children how to be sex offenders. It's easy. This part is satire. Next I discuss what parents and a concerned public can do to prevent children from becoming sex offenders. Prevention is hard. People must really want to do it. Apparently, not enough of us do. So, we will keep on raising children to be sex offenders. Is that what we want?...

Istanbul Intrigues

by Barry Rubin

This is the story of Istanbul--but also of Turkey, the Balkans, and the eastern Mediterranean--during World War II, based on extensive interviews and the use of archives, especially those of the OSS, which I was the first to see for this region. The book is written as a cross between a scholarly work and a real-life thriller. The status of Turkey as a neutral country made it a center of espionage, a sort of actual equivalent of the film “Casablanca.” Aspects of the story include the Allied-Axis struggle to get Turkey on their side; the spy rings set up in the Middle East and the Balkans; the attempts of Jews to escape through Turkey; the Allies’ covert war in Greece, Yugoslavia, Hungary, and other countries; and the first accurate account of how the Germans recruited the British amba...

Recapturing the Reluctant Radical: how to win back Europe’s populist vote by…

by Counterpoint

Support for right-wing populism in Europe has steadily gained attention from media and policy-makers over the past decade. Most of this attention, however, has been focused on the core supporters of right-wing populist parties – the members and the street activists – at the expense of the topic of this publication, the ‘reluctant radicals’. These are our main protagonists: the soft, uncommitted supporters of RPPs. They are crucial for two straightforward reasons: the reluctant radicals are the bulk of RPP support as well as those who can most easily be brought back to the mainstream, thereby depriving RPPs of their main electoral base. This publication is the first of a series produced within Counterpoint’s project ‘Recapturing Europe’s Reluctant Radicals’. Our aim here is...

A public information system for transparency in Pakistan

by Muhammad Abd al-Hameed

Government must be transparent to the people if it is to serve them well. This book offers a plan to create transparency in all government operations with the use of available technologies. The plan is primarily for Pakistan but any developing country may adopt it with modifications. The book describes how every home can have a personal computer with Internet connection. It explains how, with the help of the District Government, every district can have a radio station, a television channel and a daily newspaper, for access to public information and to create effective interaction at local level between the people and the government. Government can also make information accessible by providing copies of records on request, even of secret ones after declassification. It emphasizes that ever...

The proposals for amending the Constitution of Pakistan

by Muhammad Abd al-Hameed

Politicians and media commentators in Pakistan have been demanding for decades the “restoration of the 1973 Constitution,” without realizing what it will mean. In its original form, the Constitution reflected primarily the wishes of Z A Bhutto. Still, he himself made seven amendments that changed about 60 Articles. He ensured his perpetuation in office by requiring that somebody must stick his neck out as the alternative to him and get himself nominated in a resolution of no-confidence before it could be moved in the National Assembly. He also exercised all powers by requiring that no act of the President would be valid without the countersignature of the Prime Minister. Gen. Zia ul-Haq, who came after him, heavily tipped the balance of power in favor of the President. He even enshrin...

Lokalt ledarskap för hållbar utveckling

by Peter Örn

Vreden och besvikelsen över det som inte sker i tid och med tillräcklig kraft kommer att leda till krav på ett nytt ledarskap för hållbar utveckling. Det är en självklarhet att kraven riktas mot världens ledande politiker och mot politiker på nationell nivå. Men de lokala politikerna har också en väldigt viktig roll i arbetet för hållbarhet. Denna text publicerades ursprungligen som ett kapitel i antologin ”Framtidsutmaningar – Det nya Sverige” . Peter Örn är ordförande i Delegationen för hållbara städer tillsatt av regeringen 2008 med uppdrag att arbeta till och med 2012. Han arbetar också som rådgivare och föreläsare i frågor som rör ledarskap och hållbar samhällsutveckling....

TIN TABERNACLES: How Religious Fundamentalists Took Over the Republican Party

by Willard W. Olson

These comments were written in 2005. In some areas, my comments are somewhat dated. The continually aggressive efforts of the evangelical fundamentalists in their quest for political power in the United States has not changed during these intervening years. It has only intensified. The Republican Party as it was once constituted has vanished to be replaced by litmus tests of religious purity. While it can be honestly suggested that the Democratic Party is overburdened by political correctness, the current Republican Party is literally hamstrung by religious correctness. In the process, the vast majority of Americans are being victimized by these extremist perversions. We now witness the destruction of the middle class in this country. Possibly we need look no further than this competition ...

The Arab States and the Palestine Conflict

by Barry Rubin

Hundreds of books and thousands of articles have been devoted to the history and contemporary course of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The confrontation within Palestine, the participation of Great Britain, the United States, and the United Nations, and the impact of these events on Jews and Palestinian Arabs have all been endlessly chronicled. Surprisingly little attention, however, has been devoted to the question of how the Arab states entered the battle in the first place. In addition to tracing the events involved in the growing intervention by Arab states in Palestine, this book attempts to analyze two specific issues. How did internal conditions in the various Arab countries affect their involvement in Palestine? How did the network of alliances and conflict among the Arab governments s...

The Economics of a Storm

by Catherine Jaime

What happens when a major storm barrels through an area? In addition to the tragedy of loss of life and loss of property that accompanies so many of these storms, we also see shortages and cries of price gauging. In this short work on the topic, Catherine lays out her argument for why price gauging is not evil, and that artificially maintaining low prices in a crisis situation is not virtuous....

That's Entertainment: The Observation Principle from Bentham to Foucault (Oceania)

by Charlie Canning

When George Orwell published his dystopian novel 1984 in 1949, many believed that the totalitarian state that Orwell described couldn’t possibly come into existence by the year 1984. Others thought that it was already manifesting itself on both sides of the Iron Curtain. Since 1949, we have gone well beyond the nightmare world of Orwell’s 1984. In Orwell’s day , the power to crush an individual was in the hands of the state and Winston Smith clearly knew where the blows were coming from. Now any loose confederation of individuals within a community can completely destroy a person’s life. The chief way that the state exercises power in Orwell’s 1984 is through surveillance. In Orwell’s futuristic world, the surveillance work is done by camera, much the same as it is today. But ...

Four Major Reasons to take Jesus Seriously

by Dr Michael Jarvis

In this article I will firstly look at some significant scientific evidence relating to the Bible documents. This is necessary since a discussion of Jesus Christ relies in large measure upon these written accounts. I then present four major reasons why the person of Jesus Christ should be taken seriously. These are: 1. Because he made very specific predictions about future events that came to pass in great detail after his death. 2. Because so many details of his life were fulfillments of Old Testament Bible predictions relating to the long expected Jewish Messiah. 3. Because he performed spectacular miracles like no one before him. 4. Because his resurrection demonstrated that he really was who he claimed to be. As a scientist, I like to approach these questions, as if investigating a ser...

Censorship, Liberty, and Truth

by Michael Brulotte

A sentiment exists among our leaders today that citizens are children and need to be protected. The belief has spread with viral depth. It has persisted with religious tenacity, and the state is at fault. The state is at fault with its paternalistic zeal, with its judicious abandon, and thus we find ourselves beneath its dark umbrella. We are shielded by an effort meant once to avert our eyes from the shadows on the wall, but which now has blocked the sun. No censorship that is unintended to preclude a form of violence or to stem egregious consequence should ever exist at all—lest ignorance over truth prevail. The people of our nation are brave and determined. Our citizens in decades past are the men and women who pressed westward against a violent wilderness, who fought for independence...
