Politics (172 Books)


Politics as a category is generally applied to the art or science of running governmental or state affairs, including behavior within civil governments, but also applies to institutions, fields, and special interest groups such as the corporate, academic, and religious segments of society. It consists of social relations involving authority or power and to the methods and tactics used to formulate and apply policy. Modern political discourse focuses on democracy and the relationship between people and politics. It is thought of as the way we choose government officials and make decisions about public policy.

Anti-National Humanist

By: Ankur Mutreja

In this essay, the author is trying to answer the question: is there a political possibility of existence of a humanist as an anti-national humanist? He wonders if it is possible for humanists like doctors to not become the externalities of nationalism labeling the blood saffron, green, red, black and white (even pacifists die in wars between nations).

By: Ariel Ricker

Since the collapse of the Nazi regime, there has existed the need to understand the motivations of Nazi genocidaires who undertook widespread massacre in the name of the Reich State. Popular films produced in English, academic theses published in Hebrew, and online philosophy and history forums composed of little known languages all indicate a global commitment to understanding the particular “why” and “how” of genocide. This thesis examines the legal and social vehicles...

"The charged environment of altered and un-made familiar or known gesture420 unfolded as part of the ongoing dehumanizing project wrecked upon the viator: to unmake his world was to unmake his originality and previously unquestioned right to exist. This externalization of the viator’s figurative disintegration was represented through the state’s de-objectification and subsequent re-signification of certain objects previously taken for granted. Two examples of this dual s...

Justice, Liberty, Equality : Dalits in Independent India

By: Lenin Raghuvanshi

It has been 64 years since India — the largest democracy in the world — attained independence. Yet, justice for all is still a far cry in the country where the caste system continues to determine political, social, and economic lives of a billion people. Money and muscle power, together with political string-pulling, often result in denial of justice for the hapless ‘have-nots’, especially the Dalits (untouchables), ravaged by poverty and illiteracy. Atrocities and ex...

Money and muscle power, together with political string- pulling, often result in denial of justice for the hapless, the ‘have-nots’ ravaged by poverty and illiteracy. Ironically, even after having shed the colonial yoke, its legacy continues in the administrative framework of our independent India. Atrocities, extortion, fake encounter...

The Shrouded Satanism in Feudal Languages : Tribulations and Intra...

By: Ved from Victoria Institutions

This book I wrote, I presume, in 2013. It is a huge book of epic parameters. The basic underlying theme is the essential difference, planar-languages has with feudal-languages. Feudal languages are quite powerful, in that, the moment they are spoken, the social structure and human relationships change powerfully into a custom-design hierarchy, depending on the language. When planar-languages are spoken, the social system and human relationship shift towa...

Essence of improving Now this brings us to the essential question of: what is improving others? The easiest ideas would be giving them food, giving them education, giving them dress and such other things. Well, food is an essential requirement. Since the word education is a wide one, for the time being one can say, giving information. Dress is also a part of social living. Well, these are only the minimal things, which only make a person barely sustain himself or hers...

Le Collège Électoral Américain Est-il Une Fiction Polie Qui Devrai...

By: Fritz Dufour, Linguiste, MBA, DESS

La polarisation politique se produit lorsque les opinions ou les attentes d'une personne ou d'un groupe de personnes reflètent celles d'un parti politique (aux États-Unis: démocrate ou républicain) ou d'une idéologie (libérale ou conservatrice).

L'exemple le plus remarquable de polarisation politique des temps modernes fut les États-Généraux frança...

Is The US Electoral College A Polite Fiction That Should Be Abolis...

By: Fritz Dufour, Linguist, MBA, DESS

Political polarization occurs when the views or expectations of one person or a group of people reflect those of a political party (in the US: Democrat or Republican) or an ideology (liberal or conservative). Political polarization isn’t something to fear. In fact, it’s a test for democracy and for progress. The most notable example of modern times political polarization was the French Estate General during which those who were for the revolution seated at the right wing...

The US electoral college started to cast doubt in American voters only 20 years after the 12th amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified in 1804, which provides for election of the president and vice president by the electoral college. Should there be no majority vote for one person, the House of Representatives (one vote per state) chooses the president and the Senate the vice president. Today, 213 years after the first harbinger sign surfaced in 1824 with the ele...
