The Role of "Law of Nations" in America's Independence
 
01:04:20
Kluge Fellow Theo Christov examines the language of Emer Vattel's "Law of Nations" (1758) and the impact of Vattel on turning the newly rising United States into an international actor and eventual global power. One of the most reliable authorities during the Continental Congress (1774-1789), "Law of Nations" was not only the most consulted book on how to turn dependent British colonies into independent political actors on the international stage; it also marked the Declaration of Independence chiefly as a declaration of interdependence with other major European powers and the Constitution as a powerful statement of international law. Speaker Biography: Theo Christov is assistant professor of history and international affairs at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. He is also been a visiting assistant professor at Northwestern University and received his Ph.D. from UCLA in 2008. He is the author of "Before Anarchy: Hobbes and His Critics in Modern International Thought." For transcript and more information, visit http://www.loc.gov/today/cyberlc/feature_wdesc.php?rec=7444

3. A Southern World View: The Old South and Proslavery Ideology
 
51:00
The Civil War and Reconstruction (HIST 119) Professor Blight lectures on southern slavery. He makes a case for viewing the U.S. South as one of the five true "slave societies" in world history. He discusses the internal slave trade that moved thousands of slaves from the eastern seaboard to the cotton states of the Southwest between 1820 and 1860. Professor Blight then sketches the contents of the pro-slavery argument, including its biblical, historical, economic, cynical, and utopian aspects. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction 08:39 - Chapter 2.

Judicial Review: Crash Course Government and Politics #21
 
08:01
Today, Craig Benzine is going to tell you about the Supreme Court's most important case, Marbury v. Madison, and how the court granted itself the power of judicial review. Judicial review is the power to examine and invalidate actions of the legislative and executive branches. It happens at both the state and federal court levels, but today we're going to focus primarily on the court at the top - the Supreme Court of the United States. Now it's important to remember that the court has granted itself these powers and they aren't found within the Constitution, but as with the executive and legislative branches, the courts rely heavily on implied powers to get stuff done.

6. Expansion and Slavery: Legacies of the Mexican War and the Compromise of 1850
 
53:16
The Civil War and Reconstruction (HIST 119) In this lecture, Professor Blight discusses some of the conflicts, controversies, and compromises that led up to the Civil War. After analyzing Frederick Douglass's 1852 Fourth of July speech and the inherent conflict between American slavery and American freedom, the lecture moves into a lengthy discussion of the war with Mexico in the 1840s. Professor Blight explains why northerners and southerners made "such a fuss" over the issue of slavery's expansion into the western territories. The lecture ends with the crisis over California's admission to statehood and the Compromise of 1850. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Douglass's July Fourth Speech 12:36 - Chapter 2.

16th-Century Doctrines of Just War & the Origins of the Spanish Empire
 
01:00:28
Kluge Fellow Andrew Devereux examined the legal and moral questions of empire on the threshold of the early modern era by casting light on Spain's expansionary ventures in the Mediterranean basin in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. His talk focused on Spain's Mediterranean expansion, particularly on Spanish designs on the Holy Land and the ways in which the acquisition of the title to the defunct crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem served as the basis for legal arguments justifying war and conquest in a range of lands inhabited by non-Christian peoples. Speaker Biography: Andrew Devereux is assistant professor of history at Loyola Marymount University. He is a historian of the medieval and early modern Mediterranean. Devereux earned his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, where his dissertation examined Spanish imperial ideologies in the context of the Mediterranean world.

David Armitage: "Civil Wars, A History in Ideas" | Talks at Google
 
55:02
A highly original history, tracing the least understood and most intractable form of organized human aggression from Ancient Rome through the centuries to the present day. David Armitage is the Lloyd C. Blankfein Professor of History at Harvard University, where he teaches intellectual history and international history, and former Chair of Harvard’s History Department. His many publications include The Ideological Origins of the British Empire (2000) and The Declaration of Independence: A Global History (2007). We think we know civil war when we see it. Yet ideas of what it is, and what it isn’t, have a long and contested history, from its fraught origins in republican Rome to debates in early modern Europe to our present day. Defining the term is acutely political, for ideas about what makes a war “civil” often depend on whether one is a ruler or a rebel, victor or vanquished, sufferer or outsider. Calling a conflict a civil war can shape its outcome by determining whether outside powers choose to get involved or stand aside: from the American Revolution to the war in Iraq, pivotal decisions have depended on such shifts of perspective. The age of civil war in the West may be over, but elsewhere in the last two decades it has exploded–from the Balkans to Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia, and Sri Lanka, and most recently Syria. And the language of civil war has burgeoned as democratic politics has become more violently fought. This book’s unique perspective on the roots and dynamics of civil war, and on its shaping force in our conflict-ridden world, will be essential to the ongoing effort to grapple with this seemingly interminable problem.

America The New Atlantis - Secret Societies & The NWO Agenda
 
58:55
Milton William "Bill" Cooper was an American conspiracy theorist, radio broadcaster, and author best known for his 1991 book Behold a Pale Horse. Born: May 6, 1943, Long Beach, CA. Died: November 5, 2001, Eagar, AZ. Cause of death: Gunshot wound (Like everything, please research this info for yourselves!) Many people believe that America was founded under the Judeo-Christian tradition, the facts themselves demonstrate that America’s founders were committed Freemasons, Rosicrucians and Occultists that operated in secret. But a genuine examination of America’s earliest history reveals that the founders were adherents of the ancient schools of the mystery religions albeit through a Masonic prism. Many were Rosicrucians and therefore had an appearance of being Christian but were committed occultists. While it is certainly true that America was populated early on by Christians seeking freedom, opportunity and a new life, what is little known is that all the while ordinary people and families were taking part of the colonization of the New World, members of many various secret societies were also taking part and had been doing so since the very beginning. In fact the entire colonization scheme was engineered by occult societies, namely the Rosicrucians and Freemasons. Sir Francis Bacon, chief occultist in England during the Elizabethan age was instrumental in the founding of America – the New Atlantis. Sir Francis Bacon believed that the New World was the New Atlantis. This idea was more than some fanciful intellectual dream. Bacon set in motion a agenda to realize that idea. Some of the most influential men of his day backed Bacon’s agenda and set in motion the machinery for the American democracy. Bacon’s own secret society, the Rosicrucians were established on American soil by the mid 1600’s and among the colonizers of the New Atlantis were very powerful men, called the Order of the Quest, who sought to re-establish the glory of the Pagan Golden Age. America’s destiny was planned out over 150 years prior to the American Revolution.

Senate Judiciary Committee with Alberto Gonzales-7/24/07 Pt2
 
05:49
Part 2 of 32 Senate Judiciary Committee with Alberto Gonzales. Continuation of Chairman Senator Patrick Leahy's opening statement. 7/24/07 KEEP IN MIND: Gonzales was given each and every question he would be asked beforehand. Nothing was a surprise - there was absolutely NO "GOTCHA!" Transcript of this portion of the hearing: LEAHY:When the attorney general replaced Mr. Graves with Bradley Schlozman, the person pushing the lawsuit, that case was filed and ultimately, of course, was thrown out of court. LEAHY: Once in place in Missouri, though, Mr. Schlozman also brought indictments on the eve of a closely contested election, despite a Justice Department policy -- longstanding policy not to do so. This is what happens when a responsible prosecutor is replaced by one considered a, quote, "loyal Bushie," for partisan political purposes. Mr. Schlozman also bragged about hiring ideological soul-mates. Monica Goodling, likewise, admitted crossing the line when she used a political litmus test for career prosecutors and immigration judges. And rather than keep federal law enforcement above politics, this administration is more intent on placing its actions above the law. The attorney general admitted recently in a video for Justice employees that injecting politics into the department's hiring is unacceptable. But is he committed to corrective action and rooting out the partisanship in federal law enforcement? His lack of independence and tendency to act as if he were the president's lawyer rather than the attorney general of the United States makes that doubtful. From the infamous torture memo to Mr. Gonzales' attempt to prevail on a hospitalized Attorney General Ashcroft to certify an illegal eavesdropping program to the recent opinion seeking to justify Harriet Miers' contemptuous refusal to appear before the House Judiciary Committee, the Justice Department has been reduced to the role of an enabler for this administration. What we need instead is genuine accountability and real independence. We learned earlier this year of systematic misuse and abuse of national security letters, a powerful tool for the government to obtain personal information without the approval of a court or a prosecutor. The attorney general has said he had no inkling of these or other problems with vastly expanded investigative powers. But now we know otherwise. Recent documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act lawsuits and reported in The Washington Post indicate that the attorney general was receiving reports in 2005 and 2006 of violations in connection with the Patriot Act and abuses of national security letters. Yet, when the attorney general testified under oath before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in April 2005, he said that the track record established over the past three years has demonstrated the effectiveness of the safeguards of civil liberties put in place when the act was passed. Earlier this month, in response to written questions I sent to the attorney general about when he first learned of problems with national security letters, he once again failed to mention these reports of problems. LEAHY: Only with the openness and honesty that brings true accountability will the department begin to move forward and correct the problems of the last few years. Instead we have leadership at the Department of Justice who, when expressions of concerns and admissions of mistakes were made, only follow public revelations, and amount to regrets, really, not that mistakes and excesses were made but apparently regrets that somebody found out about those excesses. In the wake of growing reports of abuses of national security letters, the attorney general announced a new internal program. This supposed self-examination, with no involvement by the courts, no reports to Congress, no other outside check, essentially translates to "trust us." Well, with a history of civil liberty abuses and cover-ups, this administration has squandered our trust. I am not willing to accept a simple statement of "trust us." I don't trust you. Early Internal Revenue reviews, like the Intelligence Oversight Board and the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board have been ineffective and inactive, failing to take action on the violations reported to them. Only with a real check from outside on the executive branch could we have any confidence that abuses will be curbed and balance restored. And the tragic dimension of the ongoing crisis of leadership at the Justice Department is the undermining of good people and the crucial work that the department does. Thousands of honest, hardworking prosecutors and agents and other civil servants labor every day to detect and prevent crime, uncover corruption, promote equality and justice, and keep all Americans safe from terrorism. LEAHY: But sadly, prosecutions will now be questioned as politically motivated. Evidence will be suspected of having been obtained in violation of laws and civil liberties. Once the government shows a disregard for the independence of the justice system and the rule of law, it's very hard to restore the people's faith. And it's going to be very hard to restore my trust in what is going on. This committee will do its best to try to restore independence, accountability and commitment to the rule of law to the operations of the Justice Department. That is something that both Republicans and Democrats can agree on.

► Reality Transurfing by Vadim Zeland - Steps I-V / read by Bootsy Greenwood
 
08:17:16
Start with the first book https://youtu.be/Lbar0kbWJm4 . ● 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐟𝐢𝐧𝐠 ● This book talks about some very strange and unusual things. This is all so shocking, that you won’t want to believe it. But you will not be asked to believe it. Methods will be presented that allow you to verify everything yourself. And only then will your ordinary way of looking at things fall apart. We all, in one way or another, find ourselves in the power of circumstances. Desires go unfulfilled, dreams never come true. And our worst expectations justify themselves, as if to spite us. Can’t we turn this around? It appears that we can. And you’ll learn how. Transurfing is the technology for controlling reality. In spite of the completely fantastic nature of the ideas presented in this book, they have already found practical affirmation. Those who have tried Transurfing, have experienced amazement, verging on ecstasy. The surrounding world of transurfers changes in an inexplicable way, literally before their very eyes. Those who ventured to employ these methods in everyday life were astonished (perhaps, even frightened) by how real and effective they are.

The name is “Transurfing of reality” by Vadim Zeland. It’s not one book in fact, but the whole series of books that build up several concepts into one coherent theory. In a nutshell, Transurfing is a model of seeing and controlling the world. In Russian speaking countries, this book became a bestseller and an iconic piece of esoteric philosophy. Many ideas of the Transurfing were known long before Vadim Zeland nevertheless this book is simply amazing and helps to look at the world from a completely different angle. It is important to understand prior to reading that Transurfing is no panacea for all woes. Applied in a smart way Transurfing can become a truly powerful tool for shaping the reality and materialization of wishes.

Transforming Teaching and Learning about American Indians: 3 Edwin Schupman 1
 
25:10
Contemporary teaching about American Indians frequently present just a tiny glimpse into the rich and diverse cultures, histories, and contemporary lives of Native peoples. Transforming Teaching and Learning about American Indians is a symposium that explores the need to transform education about Native Americans that seek to address this deficiency and others. In this segment, Edwin Schupman, National Museum of the American Indian, speaks on "Racism Old and New: The Uncomfortable Relationship between Textbooks and American Indians." Edwin Schupman, a citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma, is the manager of Native Knowledge 360° (NK360°), the National Museum of the American Indian’s national education initiative to inspire and promote improvement of education about American Indians. Schupman completed a master’s degree in Music Theory at Miami University and doctoral coursework in ethnomusicology at the University of California, Los Angeles. After completing a repatriation project with early recordings of American Indian music at the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress, he began his long career in the field of American Indian education. Beginning in 1988 he worked for ORBIS Associates, an American Indian education firm, creating culture and standards-based lessons on American Indian topics, training teachers nationwide, and evaluating educational projects. At the Bureau of Indian Education, Schupman co-wrote a culture-based health and wellness curriculum and developed a national teacher training program. In 2004, he joined the education staff at the National Museum of the American Indian. During Schupman’s career, he has conducted education work in more than 170 Native American reservation and non-reservation communities nationwide. The symposium was webcast and recorded in the National Museum of the American Indian Rasmuson Theater on November 1, 2018.

Symposium of Architectural History The Whiteness of 19th Century American Architecture
 
04:05:17
This symposium examines the racial discourses that subtended "American Architecture" movements during the long nineteenth century. Explore this site to learn more about the specific themes, case studies and speakers that will be featured at this event. "The Whiteness of American Architecture" is organized by Charles Davis II, UB assistant professor of architecture. About the symposium “The Whiteness of 19th Century American Architecture” is a one-day symposium in architectural history organized by the School of Architecture and Planning at the University at Buffalo. This symposium is an outgrowth of the Race + Modern Architecture Project, an interdisciplinary workshop on the racial discourses of western architectural history from the Enlightenment to the present. Participants - Professor Mabel O. Wilson, Columbia GSAPP - Dianne Harris, senior program officer at the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation - Joanna Merwood-Salisbury, architectural historian - Kathryn ‘Kate’ Holliday, architectural historian - Charles Davis, assistant professor of architectural history and criticism at the University at Buffalo Race + Modern Architecture Project Race + Modern Architecture logo The “Whiteness & American Architecture” symposium continues the research that began with the Race + Modern Architecture Project, a workshop conducted at Columbia University in 2013. The forthcoming co-edited volume, Race and Modern Architecture presents a collection of seventeen groundbreaking essays by distinguished scholars writing on the critical role of racial theory in shaping architectural discourse, from the Enlightenment to the present. The book, which grows out of a collaborative, interdisciplinary, multi-year research project, redresses longstanding neglect of racial discourses among architectural scholars. With individual essays exploring topics ranging from the role of race in eighteenth-century, Anglo-American neoclassical architecture, to 1970s radical design, the book reveals how the racial has been deployed to organize and conceptualize the spaces of modernity, from the individual building to the city to the nation to the planet. Sponsors - Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture - Columbia University - Darwin D. Martin House Complex - Buffalo, NY - School of Architecture - Victoria University of Wellington - UB Humanities Institute - University at Buffalo, SUNY - School of Architecture and Planning - University at Buffalo, SUNY Purpose and Themes Our symposium will outline a critical history of the white cultural nationalisms that have proliferated under the rubric of "American Architecture" during the long nineteenth century. This theme will be explored chronologically from the late-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century and regionally from representative avant-garde movements on the East Coast to the regionalist architectural styles of the Midwest and West Coast. Such movements included the neoclassical revivals of the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, the Chicago School of Architecture and the Prairie Style, the East Bay Style on the West Coast, the Arts & Crafts movement across the continent, and various interwar movements that claimed to find unique historical origins for an autochthonous American style of building. The five architectural historians in attendance have been charged with providing some preliminary answers to the central question of these proceedings: What definitions of American identity have historically influenced the most celebrated national architectural movements of the long nineteenth century, and how was this influence been manifested in the labor relations, ideological commitments and material dimensions of innovative architectural forms?

Part1- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMzBE... Part3- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVoDX... Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while the year 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions.

David Armitage, "Civil War: A Genealogy"
 
01:19:12
Civil war is like pornography--we think know it when we see it. Yet ideas of civil war have a long and contested history with multiple meanings and contested applications. This lecture offers a critical history of conceptions of civil war, with special attention to its legal definition since the nineteenth century. The application of the term "civil war" can depend on whether you are a ruler or a rebel, the victor or the vanquished, an established government or an interested third party. It can also determine whether outside powers intervene, which provisions of international humanitarian laws, and what international aid bodies like the World Bank are willing to invest in war-torn countries. Conflict over its meaning, as well as the meaning of conflict, demand historical reconstruction to illuminate contemporary confusions about civil war. David Armitage is is the Lloyd C. Blankfein Professor of History and Chair of the Department of History at Harvard University. This lecture was recorded on May 9, 2013, as the annual Maurice and Muriel Fulton Lecture in Legal History.
The Task of History | MIT and the Legacy of Slavery | Dialogue Series
 
01:25:27
About The first class of the "MIT and Slavery" undergraduate research project ran in the fall of 2017, set in motion by MIT President L. Rafael Reif with Dean Melissa Nobles. As the research project continues over coming semesters, MIT is also conducting a community dialogue series that creates opportunities for shared discussions of the findings and our responses to the emerging research. At this dialogue event, held on May 3, 2018, four MIT historians respond to community questions about the MIT & Slavery research project and share insights about the power of historical knowledge for making a better world. The historians are Lerna Ekmekçioğlu, Malick Ghachem, Tanalis Padilla, and Craig Steven Wilder. Melissa Nobles, Dean of the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, and a professor of political science, is the event moderator. Event News Story: The Task of History: http://bit.ly/2KrDvja Of the MIT and Slavery project, MIT President L. Rafael Reif, says “I believe the work of this class is important to the present — and to the future. Something I have always loved about the MIT community is that we seek, and we face, facts. What can history teach us now, as we work to invent the future? How can we make sure that the technologies we invent will contribute to making a better world for all?" Among other discoveries, the early research findings: offer insights about the role of MIT in the post-Civil War era of Reconstruction; reveal examples of racism in the culture of the early campus; and uncover the fact that MIT’s founder, William Barton Rogers, owned six enslaved people in Virginia, before he moved to Massachusetts in 1853. The findings also suggest new lines of research about the entangled relationship between the slave economies of the Atlantic world, the fields of science and engineering, and U.S. technical institutions. MIT seeks to encourage such new historical research and to contribute to the larger national conversation about the ongoing legacies of slavery — including how history helps us better understand the roles, impact, and responsibilities of science and technology institutions in contemporary society. The "MIT and Slavery" research project will continue into the foreseeable future and its findings will be shared via a website (http://bit.ly/2BGQdal) that is accessible to the MIT community, scholars, the public, and the media.

Bob Herbert's Op-Ed.TV: The State of the American Economy with Robert Johnson
 
26:03
Nearly 100 percent of the income gains since the end of the Great Recession have gone to the top 10 percent of Americans. Nearly 40 percent of all black children in America are growing up in poverty. America’s physical plant - its roads and bridges, schoolhouses and harbors and dams and water systems - are in sad shape, but we can’t seem to get them repaired or replaced. Three-quarters of Americans think the country is on the wrong track. What’s happened to this country that once took great pride in its so-called Can-Do spirit? Bob Herbert covers it all with his guest Robert Johnson, an economist who has served as managing director at Soros Fund Management, as chief economist of the United States Senate Banking Committee, and is currently the president of the Institute for New Economic Thinking. (Taped 05-24-16) Bob Herbert's Op-Ed.TV is a weekly half-hour program featuring interviews with significant men and women from a variety of fields: officeholders and activists, economists, labor leaders, writers and artists. Herbert, a longtime journalist and former columnist for The New York Times, takes a close look each week at a compelling contemporary issue. He elicits personal stories and insights into the character of each guest, revealing not just what they believe about a particular issue, but why they believe it.

The Huffington Post Club has published the New Bill of Rights by Daniel Bruno. The New Bill of Rights aims to bring back the rule of law, civil liberties, privacy and freedom. Focusing on blacklisted authors and blacklisted news, the Huffington Post Club has reported on thousands of human rights violations and unconstitutional practices since 2010. Author Daniel Bruno Updates American Bill of Rights at Huffington Post Club Author Daniel Bruno Updates American Bill of Rights at Huffington Post Club Daniel Bruno's New Bill of Rights makes up to date a document ratified in 1791. Both the English language and technology have evolved greatly since then. To keep up with the times, the new Bill of Rights is written to be comprehensible and comprehensive to modern society. If put into law, the new Bill of Rights would save countless lives and billions on government expenditures. With millions of people under control of the penal system, more per capita than Russia, China or North Korea, America has the dubious distinction of being the world's jailer and policeman. The New Bill of Rights aims to remedy this. Mass imprisonment, paranoid surveillance and a police state are the bitter fruits of the fraudulent wars on drugs and terror which many government agencies depend on to justify their existence, writes Daniel Bruno. The mentality of a slave society has been resurrected. Assumption of guilt, no due process, discretion of the police, Draconian punishment and mass surveillance were once the hallmarks of slavery. Today, these ills have made a come back, so says Daniel Bruno, who has penned an essay about Walton Henry Bibb at Washington's Blog to illustrate the similarities between then and now. The current Bill of Rights and U.S. constitution are no match for the moneyed interests ruling the country for their own benefit. Daniel Bruno writes that a constitutional convention must be called and a new regime installed to restore democracy to the United States. The new United States government must expel all dual nationals to regain control of U.S. foreign policy. topics include the constitution, us constitution, bill of rights, founding fathers, united states constitution, articles of confederation, constitutional law, constitution of the united states, constitutional convention, constitutionalist vs cop, constitutional convention, constitution definition, constitutional amendments, constitutional rights,police state,9/11,September 11

Dr Bill O'Brien 03 September 2013
 
01:55:31
Today Dr Bill examines the ideology, history, and evolution of community as a concept in American democracy, picking up from our previous discussion of the famous Supreme Court case of Charles River Bridge v Warren Bridge. This case exemplifies how community needs are weighed against individual and private concerns, and provides us with a starting point for a larger examination of this balance as it manifests throughout American history, particularly in three Colonial Era examples: The Mayflower Compact, the Dorchester Agreement, and John Winthrop's famous "City upon a Hill" speech delivered in 1630 aboard the ship Arbella en route to the New World of the Americas. _______________________________ Welcome to the Virtual Center for the Study of the Constitution! The Virtual Center programming, hosted by Concord University (WV) Beckley Campus President Dr Bill O'Brien, is available on the Head ON Radio Network (HORN) through the efforts of Bob Kincaid, Jon Fox, Ben Burch and the White Rose Society (www.whiterosesociety.org). Live show streams and information can be found at www.headonradionetwork.com and at www.prismwv.org. Recent years have seen repeated and increasingly brazen attempts to rewrite the history of the American Revolution and the foundation of the United States for modern political purposes. In this series of internet radio programming, Dr Bill lays bare the historical and philosophical underpinnings of American government, along the with events and personalities wrapped up in the enterprising of creating government of, by, and for the people on the American continent--and "all the rest of it."

2016 AAA Invited Session: TOURISM IN A TIME OF TERROR: TERRORISM, POLITICS AND VIOLENCE (PART 1)
 
01:54:07
In line with the American Anthropological Association’s 115th Annual Meeting theme, “Evidence, Accident, Discovery,” which aims to interrogate the “underlying causes and foreseeability of violence and catastrophes” as well as how “misfortune is interpreted and causality attributed in humanly-preventable harm,” this session—Tourism in a Time of Terror, Part I: Terrorism, Politics and Violence—examines the ways in which tourism and travel impacts, and is impacted by, terror in all of its forms. By “terror,” we mean not only the current wave of militarized, religio-political terrorism that is sweeping much of the world—from Pakistan to the United States, Belgium to Kenya—but also other acute fears stemming from natural and man-made disasters: severe economic crises, migration and the immigrant “other,” nuclear meltdowns, tsunamis, and climate change. Indeed, like other global phenomena, tourism is shaped and structured by worldwide, systemic factors; while often seen as external to the objectives, goals, and processes of tourism, these “outside” forces nevertheless contribute to shaping and indeed structuring the ways in which tourism is both implemented and experienced by a range of actors. In this post-9/11 era, tourism is inexorably tied to, and shaped by, terror and terrorism: on the one hand, strong feelings of affect repel travel to lands perceived of as dangerous, radical, or contaminated; on the other hand, terrorism itself often specifically targets touristic infrastructures (busses, trains, airplanes and airports, markets, heritage sites, etc.). Yet terror also works as a compelling “mechanism of seduction” that draws the curious, adventuresome, or thana-obsessed to “dark tourism” sites of death, destruction, and historical violence. While some anthropologists examined the link between tourism and terror in the years surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the eastern United States, there is a notable gap in contemporary engagement with the issue. Complementing the ATIG-sponsored Part II, which explores affect, insecurity and disasters, this session--Part I: Terrorism, Politics and Violence--focuses on the socio-political dynamics of tourism and terror, exploring the ways in which global forms of violence and terror both condition and are conditioned by tourism. In particular, the papers here show how tourism is used by both nation-states asserting their governmentality as well as by so-called terrorists aiming to foster instability. Collectively, they examine the social, political and economic impacts of transnational terror on tourism: from jihadist terrorism and political instability in North Africa and the Middle East, to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, from Caribbean violence to Mexican and Afghani narco-terrorism (as well as the transnational so-called "war on drugs"). Together, they interrogate both the causes of the link between intentional acts of fear-creation with tourism, as well as responses by tourists and those within the tourism industry to intentional and unintentional acts of terror.
History of Western civilization | Wikipedia audio article

This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: History of Western civilization Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= Western civilization traces its roots back to Europe and the Mediterranean. It is linked to the Roman Empire and with Medieval Western Christendom which emerged from the Middle Ages to experience such transformative episodes as the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, scientific revolution, and the development of liberal democracy. The civilizations of Classical Greece and Ancient Rome are considered seminal periods in Western history; a few cultural contributions also emerged from the pagan peoples of pre-Christian Europe, such as the Celts and Germans, as well as some significant religious contributions derived from Judaism and Hellenistic Judaism stemming back to Second Temple Judea, Galilee, and the early Jewish diaspora; and some other Middle Eastern influences. Christianity and Roman Catholicism has played a prominent role in the shaping of Western civilization, which throughout most of its history, has been nearly equivalent to Christian culture. (There were Christians outside of the West, such as China, India, Russia, Byzantium and the Middle East). Western civilization has spread to produce the dominant cultures of modern Americas and Oceania, and has had immense global influence in recent centuries in many ways. Following the 5th century Fall of Rome, Western Europe entered the Middle Ages, during which period the Catholic Church filled the power vacuum left in the West by the fall of the Western Roman Empire, while the Eastern Roman Empire (or Byzantine Empire) endured in the East for centuries, becoming a Hellenic Eastern contrast to the Latin West. By the 12th century, Western Europe was experiencing a flowering of art and learning, propelled by the construction of cathedrals and the establishment of medieval universities. Christian unity was shattered by the Reformation from the 16th century. A merchant class grew out of city states, initially in the Italian peninsula (see Italian city-states), and Europe experienced the Renaissance from the 14th to the 17th century, heralding an age of technological and artistic advance and ushering in the Age of Discovery which saw the rise of such global European Empires as those of Spain and Portugal. The Industrial Revolution began in Britain in the 18th century. Under the influence of the Enlightenment, the Age of Revolution emerged from the United States and France as part of the transformation of the West into its industrialised, democratised modern form. The lands of North and South America, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand became first part of European Empires and then home to new Western nations, while Africa and Asia were largely carved up between Western powers. Laboratories of Western democracy were founded in Britain's colonies in Australasia from the mid-19th centuries, while South America largely created new autocracies. In the 20th century, absolute monarchy disappeared from Europe, and despite episodes of Fascism and Communism, by the close of the century, virtually all of Europe was electing its leaders democratically. Most Western nations were heavily involved in the First and Second World Wars and protracted Cold War. World War II saw Fascism defeated in Europe, and the emergence of the United States and Soviet Union as rival global powers and a new "East-West" political contrast. Other than in Russia, the European Empires disintegrated after World War II and civil rights movements and widescale multi-ethnic, multi-faith migrations to Europe, the Americas and Oceania lowered the earlier predominance of ethnic Europeans in Western culture. European nations moved towards greater economic and political co-operation through the European Union. The Cold War ended around 1990 with the collapse of Soviet imposed Communism in Central and Eastern Europe. In the 21st century, the Western World retains significant global economic power and influ ...
