Socialist internationalism is therefore ultimately based on a belief in a commonhumanity. Some African scholars have dubbed this phenomenon ‘choiceless democracies’. One of the clever methods employed is to keep people passive, docile and obedient by strictly limiting and framing the spectrum of acceptable opinions, but allowing very lively debate within that narrow spectrum, even encouraging the more critical and dissident views provided they are confined within the pre-conceived frame.

In the latter sense, it has been recruited to the cause of fundamentalism, and, according to Palestinians, it has acquired an expansionist, anti-Arab character. Nonetheless, some of these parties did succeed at times in attaining one of their primary goals: namely, the political mobilization and organization of large followings, often tens of thousands strong. In 1972, Congress also passed a bill (first proposed in 1923) to amend the Constitution to grant equal rights of citizenship to women.

The conflicts have not yet ended in Syria and there are possibilities that the revolts will succeed and Syria will be facing massive challenges for a transition that might be either democratic or not democratic. And what can be done with a people who are their own masters if they are not submissive to the Deity? (1945, 1:303-307, emp. added). Then it would be perfectly consistent with the idea of intrinsic equality to conclude that these persons of superior knowledge and virtue, like Eccles, should rule over all the others.

Most prominent is the conservative bias: democracy and democratic culture structurally limit innovation. Beginning with an examination of urbanism and modernity grounded in the American political reality, uses the concept of city from its ancient articulation into the present to probe the experience of urbanization in European, Asian, African, and South American countries. Among these controversies are the following: Are mind and body two distinct sorts of substances, as Descartes argues, and if so, what is the nature of each, and how are they related to each other, both in the human being (which presumably “has” both a mind and a body) and in a unified world system?

The normative character of nationalism is notoriously difficult to judge. with the collapse of the political successor to the 0ussian *mpire. As Sherman said, "with universal suffrage, but with a continued concentration of wealth and power in a few capitalist hands, there can be only a limited amount of democratic control of workers and the middle classes."

Such cases call for an empirical inquiry in which truth claims about the world are submitted to critical testing. Now, the phenomenon of reinterpretation by politicians continues largely unchallenged. New right conservatives, attracted to classicaleconomics, wished to ‘get government off the back of business’ and allow the economy to bedisciplined by market forces, rather than managed by an interventionist state. What does this tell us about the relationship between ideology and truth?

György Lukács (1885–1971) described this as a projection of the class consciousness of the ruling class, while Antonio Gramsci (1891–1937) advanced the theory of "cultural hegemony" to explain why people in the working-class can have a false conception of their own interests. Political ideology is a term fraught with problems, having been called "the most elusive concept in the whole of social science"; [1] however, ideologies tend to identify themselves by their position on the political spectrum (such as the left, the centre or the right ), though this is very often controversial.

From beneath the ruins of liberal, socialist, and democratic doctrines, Fascism extracts those elements which are still vital. This was the given rationalization for the Nazi's later oppression and elimination of Jews and Gypsies. Our diagnosis of the prevailing apathy was that deep anxieties had fostered “a developed indifference” about public life but also a yearning to believe in something better. “It is to this latter yearning, at once the spark and engine of change, that we direct our present appeal.” We even thrashed out basic views of human nature day after day, not the usual subject of political platforms.
