Democracy – Social Innovation

22769911_10155972123443469_277194913684874439_o

Democracy is one of four broad areas of current focus in social innovation along with economics, prejudice and social engineering for Daniella Bartfeld, the world’s sole publicly known contemporary, documented living universal genius.

Advancing Democracy

Churchill quoteLiberal democracy needs to strengthen its good sides, become more accountable and enable more voter choices. Read more…

Anatomy of “Anti-Racism”

typewriter-1215868_1280Mainstream journalists and mainstream politicians need to resume the essential tasks of opposing enemies of open society, facilitating informed multicultural debate as well as reforming immigration policy so that the focus is once more on receiving deserving pro-democratic asylum seekers. Read more…

Apophatics of Journalism

man-2399982_1280Free journalism is an essential element in open society and liberal democracy and in fact unless journalism is free is it not journalism at all. Our digitized world is full of online writers and so who is a journalist and who is merely a writer? Is a journalist someone who is paid by others to write or is a journalist a person who while writing endeavors to think for herself with high ethical standards and independently of ulterior personal economic considerations? Read more…

Arithmetics of Islamization

Apostasy_laws_in_2013.SVGBlaming others for elected politicians, journalists and the police not doing their job in defending open society from its enemies will certainly not help solve problems associated with societal processes of Islamization in liberal-democratic open societies with large-scale immigration from countries in a state of more extensive Islamization. Rather, those who evade their duties in defending open society will by simple arithmetics become outcompeted by yet others. Read more…

Art of Democracy

emancipate-1779132_1280Democracy is in a sense above politics and so democracy is thus not reducible to mere politics. What is needed therefore is profoundly multidimensional ethical understanding that will further develop, enhance and strengthen the global project of freedom, emancipation and representative governance. Read more…

Beyond Left and Right

hands-2747324_1280Many modern multicultural societies suffer racial/class strife mainly due to educationally normative genotypic average psychometric normativity, namely the phenomenon that one genetic group is turned into the psychometric norm in education. This favors genetic groups with relatively higher average IQs as compared to the nationally normative genetic group; e.g. as relating to genetically Ashkenazi Jews in Germany and reversely disfavors genetic groups with relatively lower average IQs than the psychometrically nationally normative genetic group. This is so as the individual speed of institutionalized compulsory learning correlates highly with individual IQ. Read more…

Decolonizing the Western Hemisphere

768px-Quechua_(subgrupos).svgThe Western hemisphere was first populated somewhere between 40 000 and 16 500 years ago by means of migration from Siberia. The predominant Eurocentric assumption has long been that this was the only pre-columbian Euroasian contact with the Western hemisphere. Read more…

Deconstructing Anarchism

Donna_Haraway_and_CayenneThe notion of left and right in politics is rather unhelpful since this promotes fundamentally unhelpful dichotomous thinking. Left and right is typically about variously defending and opposing economic structural oppression, social structural oppression and statist structural oppression. Why not rather oppose structural oppression generally irrespective of it being economic, social or statist? Read more…

Deconstructing Conservatism

germ-2871773_1280What is conservatism about and why is it needed at all? There are however two main forms of conservatism as existing within all the main streams of contemporary conservatism. Paleoconservatives tend to take leading roles in justifying structural prejudice/oppression in seeing their main mission as preventing further emancipation. Neoconservatives in contrast are sceptical of populist demagoguery and take great care to defend values of emancipation, freedom and democracy even at the price of war. Read more…

Deconstructing Environmentalism

680px-VertiCropGreen politics was founded in the German tradition of Blut und Boden albeit in rather liberal version, indeed a revolt against urbanism. The ideological trajectory of Green thinking is far older than the Green movement itself as already John Stuart Mill pointed out at the eerily similarity between mining and rape. Environmentalism in the form of conservation of nature and organizations promoting conservation of nature is of course also far older than present Green political parties. Read more…

Deconstructing Intersectionality

1212px-Kimberlé_Crenshaw_Laura_Flanders_2017The term Intersectionality refers to “intersecting forms of oppression” and emerged out of late 20th century feminist epistemology (theory of knowledge) in North America whereby it is was recognized that many women were oppressed as women also in their capacity as members of other structurally oppressed categories of persons and hence did academic feminists recognize that the epistemological position of an African-American lesbian woman in the United States was certainly not identical to that of a European-American heterocultural woman in the same country. This is literally how Intersectionality was born in the late 20th century North America. Of course was it at that point not recognized that women are a category of oppressors with girls formally legally disenfranchised as the structurally oppressed subordinated category of physionomistically designated sub-persons. Read more…

Deconstructing Liberalism

statue_of_liberty_-_4621961395All pro-democratic political movements form part of the pan-liberal spectrum of thought and so pan-liberalism as the foundational philosophical spectrum in liberal-democratic open societies therefore needs to be anchored in many different perspectives, viewpoints and worldviews so as ensure sustainably successful democratization and liberalization in emerging democracies. Read more…

Deconstructing Libertarianism

youth-570881_1280What is libertarianism about and importantly what ought it be about? Libertarianism is similar to Anarchism in opposing statist structural oppression, yet is far more selective in terms of opposing other forms of structural oppression indeed. Read more…

Deconstructing Socialism

protest-155927_1280The question of socialism is one that has typically been reduced to Marxist theory. Yet socialism is certainly not reducible to Marxism and so socialism deserves careful and responsible deconstruction indeed. Read more…

Democratic Borders

statue-of-liberty-568685_1280What is the meaning of democracy? The sovereignty of the people although not unlimited sovereignty as democracy is delimited by virtue or it is simply mass tyranny. Read more…

Defeating Islamism

Mugshot_of_Abu_Bakr_al-Baghdadi,_2004Muslim extremism can only be marginalized if the general public is carefully educated in distinguishing between Islam and Islamism. Read more…

Democratic Patriotism

rainbow-1192500_1280Nationalism is essentially modernized tribalism and one of many forms of modern identity politics as expressive of our zoologically founded desire for living in herds. Politics based on identities (“I am an X-ist and therefore is Y true”) is particularly effective in compelling persons to emotionally not think. Read more…

Democratic Realism

democratizationPursuing successful processes of democratization and safeguarding open societies is a wide-ranging task that crucially requires learning from mistakes of failed democracies and failed processes of democratization alike. Read more…

Epistemology of Revolution

revolution-743467_1280Revolutions have a bad reputation among historians and so the diversity in experiences of historical revolutions and their respective outcomes thus need be comparatively and carefully studied, considered and understood indeed. Read more…

Feminist Justice

board-1815982_1280What is feminist justice and how is it different from patriarchal injustice? That is an essential question to ask before even considering the possibility of justice as justice needs be considered in epistemological, hermeneutic and teleological terms before the ontological possibility of justice may even be considered. Read more…

Freedom of Conscience

karate-2578819_1280What is freedom of conscience? Is there such a thing and should there importantly be such a thing as freedom of conscience? Read more…

Global Democratic Policy

hands-565603_1280What does it mean to be committed to democracy? It means responsibly committing oneself to the defense, promotion and development of freedom, emancipation and representative governance. This should not merely be a domestic commitment but an international one as well. Read more…

Investigative Science Journalism

coffee-2791116_1280Academia is a surviving medieval, barely secularized and once fully Catholic form of institution and so retains an authoritarian institutional culture, meaning that you must express yourself within the reigning paradigm of your academic subculture and abide by its subcultural codes or at least so until you have secured unlimited tenure at which point you most probably already fully represent ideological hegemony itself or alternatively simplistic reverse discourse thereof. Read more…

State of Deconstruction

160914-F-LY873-023As we technologically approach a very different economic era, one based on advanced individual talent rather than on access to mass capital – one of abundance in talent rather than scarcity in capital – do we certainly need to commence rethinking the state itself and its very purpose indeed. Read more…

Teleology of Feminist Diplomacy

11665268185_507479141f_kWhat is feminist diplomacy or rather should the question be posed, what ought feminist diplomacy be? What needs feminist diplomacy be? What will feminist diplomacy be and importantly what should feminist be? Read more…

United Feminism

girl-449769_1280Fourth-wave feminism needs to engage in social innovation, implement verified feminist social innovation in response to problems identified by feminist critique and furthermore overturn the male monopoly on violence without in most jurisdictions breaking the law of the land. Feminism in re-appropriating and empowering the domain of the feminine needs to become the movement against structural oppression generally whether this is social, economic, physical or governmental and irrespective of assigned class/type of body or social group. Fourth-wave feminism needs embrace and defend the values of liberty through democratic realism for these are precisely what enable feminism itself to emerge, exist, develop, thrive and prevail indeed. Read more…

Virtues of Democratic Multiculturalism

ceramic-3050615_1280The question of multiculturalism is a central one in political debates in contemporary Europe. Is thus multiculturalism conceivable, realistic, realizable or even possible? Read more…
