Our Republican Constitution: Securing the Liberty and Sovereignty of We the People

#ad
Broadside e-books #ad - Yet soon thereafter, progressive academics and activists urged the courts to remake our Republican Constitution into a democratic one by ignoring key passes of its text. Barnett tells the fascinating story of how this debate arose shortly after the Revolution, leading to the adoption of a new and innovative “republican” constitution; and how the struggle over slavery led to its completion by a newly formed Republican Party.

A concise history of the long struggle between two fundamentally opposing constitutional traditions, from one of the nation’s leading constitutional scholars—a manifesto for renewing our constitutional republic. The constitution of the United States begins with the words: “We the People. But from the earliest days of the american republic, there have been two competing notions of “the People, ” which lead to two very different visions of the Constitution.

Our Republican Constitution: Securing the Liberty and Sovereignty of We the People #ad - Those who view “we the people” collectively think popular sovereignty resides in the people as a group, which leads them to favor a “democratic” constitution that allows the “will of the people” to be expressed by majority rule. In contrast, ” each and every one, those who think popular sovereignty resides in the people as individuals contend that a “republican” constitution is needed to secure the pre-existing inalienable rights of “We the People, against abuses by the majority.

In our republican Constitution, renowned legal scholar Randy E. Eventually, the courts complied. Drawing from his deep knowledge of constitutional law and history, barnett explains why “We the People” would greatly benefit from the renewal of our Republican Constitution, as well as his experience litigating on behalf of medical marijuana and against Obamacare, and how this can be accomplished in the courts and the political arena.

Twilight of American Sanity: A Psychiatrist Analyzes the Age of Trump

#ad
William Morrow #ad - Equally challenging and profound, twilight of american sanity “joins a small shelf of essential titles—Arlie Hochschild’s Strangers in Their Own Land is another—that help explain why and how the Trump presidency happened” Kirkus. It is comforting to see president Donald Trump as a crazy man, a one-off, an exception—not a reflection on us or our democracy.

What does it say about us, that we elected someone so manifestly unfit and unprepared to determine mankind’s future? Trump is a symptom of a world in distress, not its sole cause. But in ways i never anticipated, his rise was absolutely predictable and a mirror on our soul. Calling trump crazy allows us to avoid confronting the craziness in our society—if we want to get sane, we must first gain insight about ourselves.

Twilight of American Sanity: A Psychiatrist Analyzes the Age of Trump #ad - Unravels the national psyche that brought our politics to this moment. Evan osnos, the new yorkera landmark book, from “one of the world’s most prominent psychiatrists” The Atlantic: Allen Frances analyzes the nation, viewing the rise of Donald J. Simply put: trump isn’t crazy, but our society is.

Widely cited in recent months as the man who quite literally wrote the diagnostic criteria for narcissism, Allen Frances, M. D. Has been at the center of the debate surrounding president trump’s mental state—quoted in evan Osnos’s May 2017 New Yorker article “How Trump Could Get Fired” and publishing a much-shared opinion letter in the New York Times “An Eminent Psychiatrist Demurs on Trump’s Mental State”.

Trump as darkly symptomatic of a deeper societal distress that must be understood if we are to move forward.

The Swastika and Symbols of Hate: Extremist Iconography Today

#ad
Allworth #ad - If you want to know what the logo for hate looks like, go no further. A skilled propagandist, banners, Hitler and his accomplices understood how to stoke fear through mass media and through emblems, and uniforms. Forces even the most sophisticated to rethink and rework their ideas of how images work in the world.

School library journal this is a classic story, even today, revised and expanded edition about how one graphic symbol can endure and influence life—for good and evil—for generations and never, masterfully told, in a new, be redeemed. The nazi swastika is a visual obscenity and provokes deep emotions on all sides.

The Swastika and Symbols of Hate: Extremist Iconography Today #ad - Readers will be fascinated by the twists and turns of the swastika’s fortunes, to its contemporary applications as both a racist, from its pre-Nazi spiritual-religious and benign commercial uses, to the Nazi appropriation and criminalization of the form, hate-filled logo and ignorantly hip identity.

A nuanced examination of the most powerful symbol ever created, The Swastika and Symbols of Hate explores the rise and fall of the symbol, its mysteries, co-option, and misunderstandings. Given the increasing tolerance for supremacist intolerance tacitly and overtly shown by politicians the world over, this revised and reconfigured edition includes additional material on old and new hate logos as it examines graphic design’s role in far-right extremist ideology today.

The nazis weaponized this design, first as a party emblem, then as a sign of national pride and, ultimately, as the trademark of Adolf Hitler’s unremitting malevolence in the name of national superiority. Once the mark of good fortune, during the twentieth century it was hijacked and perverted, twisted into the graphic embodiment of intolerance.

Many contemporary hate marks are rooted in Nazi iconography both as serious homage and sarcastic digital bots and trolls.

Skyhorse #ad - Is a force for good in the world, regardless of slavery, the genocide of indigenous people, and the more than a century’s worth of imperialist war that the U. S.

S. Empire. From american exceptionalism and american innocenceaccording to robert sirvent and danny Haiphong, that we don’t live on stolen land, that prisons keep us safe, that wars are fought to spread freedom and democracy, that a rising tide lifts all boats, Americans have been exposed to fake news throughout our history—news that slavery is a thing of the past, and that the police serve and protect.

Custom House #ad - Yet chait convincingly shows that president obama has accomplished what candidate Obama said he would, despite overwhelming opposition—and that the hopes of those who voted for him have not been dashed despite the smokescreen of extremist propaganda and the limits of short-term perspective. Now, domestic reform, the environment, race, as the page turns to our next commander in Chief, digs deep into Obama’s record on major policy fronts—economics, Jonathan Chait, acclaimed as one of the most incisive and meticulous political commentators in America, foreign policy, health care, and civil rights—to demonstrate why history will judge our forty-fourth president as among the greatest in history.

Over the course of eight years, Barack Obama has amassed an array of outstanding achievements. He has done all of this despite a left that frequently disdained him as a sellout, and a hysterical right that did everything possible to destroy his agenda even when they agreed with what he was doing.
