There has been widespread praise and critique of neo-liberal policies and their effect on the international economy, particularly with respect to widening inequality, suppression of developing economies and contribution to financial crisis due to destabilizing capital flows. This paper will contrast the implied positive effects of neo-liberalism from a Keynesian perspective against a Marxist analysis which suggests such economic liberalism merely changes the time intervals and severity of inevitable boom and bust cycles of capitalism and as such makes no permanent progression in the global economy.
Displacement of the Keynesian welfare state policy approach was embedded in end of the long...

To what extent has modern liberalism departed from the ideas of classical liberalism?
The further development of industrialisation led to social and economic inequality. This led to a revision of classical liberal ideas to prevent the spread of ignorance and poverty. It is suggested that modern liberals have betrayed classical liberal ideas as they embrace collectivism and diverge from classical liberalism on issues such as freedom. However, it can be argued that modern liberals have simply built on classical liberal ideas such as its commitment to the individual.
One area in which it is suggested that modern liberalism has departed from classical liberalism is individualism. Classical...

The central theme of the liberal ideology is a commitment to the individual and a society that entices the desire of individuals to fulfil their potential enjoying maximum possible freedom within a like...

Progressives tend to advocate a relatively social democratic agenda. Unifying issues among progressive Democrats include opposition to the War in Iraq, opposition to economic liberalism and social conservatism, opposition to all corporate influence in government, support for universal health care or single-payer health care, revitalization of the national infrastructure and steering the Democratic Party in the direction of being a more forceful party.

* The three most important contributing factors of the agricultural revolution in Europe were: the three field system, better farming equipment, and warmer temperatures. Because of the improved weather and farming equipment and system improvement, farming production increased and influenced society. These three factors combined revolutionized the way of living in Europe during the 19th century.
The agricultural revolution changed the way people worked and the jobs that could be found in 19th century European society. The new way of farming eliminated many farm jobs causing society to seek out jobs elsewhere, such as coalmines.

Liberals, no matter classical or modern, believe in small state. As Thomas Paine put it: "Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil". This concept links nicely with the idea of democracy, which literally means "rule by people". Liberals have defended democracy on the grounds that people must have a way of protecting themselves against the government and its actions. This type of democracy is also referred to as protective democracy. Moreover, democracy opens an ability for people to choose. In a pure democracy, for instance, people would vote on every occasion and policy, hence the core liberal idea of individualism would flourish in its fullest. However, in modern society...

How far were the 1848 revolutions stimulated by socio-economic rather than political factors?
The revolutions of 1848 were a series of simultaneous revolutions across a number of countries, mainly in Europe. A number of different reasons brought about these revolutions but each individual country had different reasons to why they had a revolution. As a result of this we cannot fully determine whether the 1848 revolutions were driven by socioeconomic or political reasons until we have looked at each major case individually, as this will allow us to make an accurate judgement on why the revolution occurred. To look at each country and their revolutionary...

America and the Great War
World War 1 was in the works for a long time in the European countries. Nationalism, Imperialism, and Militarism were the main factors that led to the Great War. There were so many alliances between 1879 and 1914 that there was no choice when an ally declared war. The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife was a trigger for the declarations of war being set up for many years prior.
America and the Great War

About this Denomination:
The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) was started in December 1973 and their origin can be traced to John Calvin. The theological distinction of PCA is conservative reformed and the ecclesiology is Presbyterian. “This church was first known as the National Presbyterian Church but changed its name in 1974 to Presbyterian Church in America.” The PCA became a separate denomination from the Presbyterian Church in the United States (PCUSA) due to the “opposition of long-developing theological liberalism which denied the deity of Jesus Christ and the inerrancy and authority of Scripture.” The Evangelical Synod and the Reformed Presbyterian Church joined the PCA in...

Student Involvement: A Developmental Theory for Higher Education
Alexander W. Astin A student development theory based on student involvement is presented and described, and the implications for practice and research are discussed. Even a casual reading of the extensive literature on student development in higher education can create confusion and perplexity. One finds not only that the problems being studied are highly diverse but also that investigators who claim to be studying the same problem frequently do not look at the same variables or employ the same methodologies. And even when they are investigating the same variables, different investigators may use completely different terms to...

Sample Research Paper on Citizenship
Citizenship is being defined as the relationship between the state and individuals. Historically citizenship is being inevitably linked with the state formation. Originally citizenship was denoting residence of people within protected walls of a city. Thus, whoever belonged to a community residing inside the boundaries was considered a citizen. Later this term has acquired a different meaning and the standards and definitions of citizenship have changed. There were many reasons that have caused such changes: history proceeded with its migrations, wars and annexation and along on its way brought new meanings to citizenship. Such change in...

The issue of moral development has been and has become a hot topic within education and psychology. “One of the best known theories was developed by a psychologist named Lawrence Kohlberg who modified and expanded up Jean Piaget’s work to form a theory that explained how children develop moral reasoning” (Cherry, 2014). Moral development was described in two stages by Piaget. Kohlberg took those two...

When the invasion of rap music enter the world by the late 1980’s and 1990’s, a lot of the older White America was appalled on how these “gangsta” rappers was getting famous and even popular with their white kids. The same thing can be said back in the 1950’s when the emergences of rock and roll hit started to get popular with America.

Don't live here, says the wind, the trembling earth, the parched land whose natural inclination is to explode in flame every year about now. But we do.

Question 1When and what to eat is a social fact. In most societies, food plays an important part in social life, and Denmark is definitely no exception. Not only is it commonly known when to eat, it is in most cases also given what to eat. A social gathering does nearly always contain a meal which forms the centre of the gathering, and in this case, everybody is supposed to eat the same. The “feeling of socialising” comes from being with other people, eating the same. Durkheim classifies a social fact as manners of acting, thinking and feeling external to the individual, which are invested with a coercive power by virtue of which they exercise control over him.
The individual who chooses...

Russia has never been a happy place. Since the 12th Century it has been bogged down in poverty, horrific living conditions, and an extremely separated class system. It took many years for the workers and slaves of Russian life to finally organize themselves and revolt against the causes of such hardship; many years of pain, suffering, and oppression that were brought on by the czars. It was this stagnant suffering that would finally begin to lift, and eventually bring power to the Bolsheviks and communism to Russia. Many revolutionaries encouraged killing, robbery, and used terror to advance their effort. However, there were other kinds of revolutionaries, some violent, some not. Gorky,...

Judicial independence, although often argued to be a fundamental concept to the rule of law, democracy and political stability, alarmingly continues to be contested and vague even in economically developed liberal democratic states recognized for the rule of law. This was particularly indicated by leading US constitutional scholar ‘name’, ‘there is a disagreement about whether or how to criticize judges and their decisions, and about whether or how to discipline judges. And, of course, there is pervasive disagreement about whether our judges exhibit too much or too little independence.’ The problems are exaggerated in cases of developing countries with unstable democracies and...

There were many definitions given on what really art means. Some of them defined art as a “skill” and was derived from the Latin word “ars”. Over the years, the actual meaning of Art has changed. In medieval times, it was used to refer only to “liberal arts” as a field of education for free men. But then, no one of this really gives the exact definition of art.
We will try to define art in our own way and understanding. Art is a complex ad effective means of expression of thoughts and emotions of people in a society. We say it complex because it is actual nor it is abstract. Art is a way of...

The contributions of western education to development in Nigeria.
If a man is born blind, he may not appreciate what it means to see the light, but ones his sight is recovered he would definitely not want to be thrown back into perpetual darkness. Darkness, blindness or ignorance are terms that could be interchangeably used to describe the state of Nigeria before the advent of western education. No matter how beautiful or promising an environment may be, it would neither be seen nor appreciated in darkness. Light is needed to appreciate anything good, amend anything that is not good enough or throw away anything that is bad outright. Western education came with light appreciating...

The Good Shepherd is an archetypal model for the priest.
The great Pope John Paul II in his writing on Pastores Dabo Vobis (PDV) in the late 20th century about priestly formation in our present-day points out that:
“Indeed, the priest, by virtue of the consecration which he receives in the sacrament of orders, is sent forth
by the Father through the mediatorship of Jesus Christ, to whom he is configured in a special way as head and shepherd of his people, in order to live and work by the power of the Holy Spirit in service of the Church and for the salvation of the world”

It sifts from leaden sieves,
It powders all the wood.
It fills with alabaster wool
The wrinkles of the road
It makes an even face
Of mountain and of a plain-
Unbroken forehead from the east
Unto the east again
It reaches to the fence,
It wraps it rail by rail
Till it lost in fleeces;
It deals celestial veil
To stump and stack and stem-
A summer’s empty room
Acres of joints where harvest were,
Recordless, but for them
It ruffles wrists of posts
As ankles of a queen
Then stills its artisans like ghosts,
Denying they have been.
The snow falls from the sky through the clouds like flour. It powders all the trees. It...

When Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite Index fell from 6000 to 5500 points, almost everyone who lost money still believed in the market’s strength and hoped it would bounce back so that they could recoup all their losses in the near future. Few were willing to withdraw their investments though most knew that “stop losses” is a basic investment principle. Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite Index is struggling against 3000 points these days and the investors who watched their...
