Light VS Near – Death Note’s True Ideological Conflict Light VS Near – Death Note’s True Ideological Conflict

Death Note is a manga that gets a lot for its moral ambiguity; namely, the extremely subjective views on justice that a lot of the characters possess.

The Legal Ideology of Donald Trump The Legal Ideology of Donald Trump

We are now looking at a four-four court. Donald Trump has given us some indication as to who, or what ilk, I should say, his Supreme Court nominee will be. This has come primarily from the Heritage Foundation. Just give me your sense. Obviously, so we’re outside of the realm of the law as much…

Richard Wolff Critiques Libertarian View that Capitalism’s Problem is the Government Richard Wolff Critiques Libertarian View that Capitalism’s Problem is the Government

The notion that the government’s intrusion into the economy is some sort of external influence (some sort of outside intrusion on what would be better left without such intrusions), I would argue based on a lifetime of work in the field we call economic history, that this is a complete illusion. Strong government has been…

Richard Wolff on the Common Ground between Libertarianism and Socialism Richard Wolff on the Common Ground between Libertarianism and Socialism

I would argue to my libertarian friends, your definition of socialism is strange, and not quite on target. Are there some socialists who are in love with the state, and the power of the state? You bet. You get that. But they have always been socialists who are dead against that, and you seem either…

Richard Wolff on 3 Mistakes of Thinking the Problem is Monopolies, Not Capitalism Richard Wolff on 3 Mistakes of Thinking the Problem is Monopolies, Not Capitalism

So it’s comforting, in that situation, to get the idea from somewhere that this really isn’t a problem of capitalism as a system but rather the problem brought in somehow from the outside: monopoly. A situation in which competition among many companies gives way, in some way we’re not quite sure about, to a domination…
