Today in Brazil there is a calling into question of Brazilian democracy, a sort of societal "midlife crisis". Our democracy provides, in theory, equality of rights and economic conditions (equality of citizens before the law) for everyone. Therefore, the logic of alternation in power would be accompanied by an amount of sales desirable to the leadership with the goal of aerating the representatives and agents, as well as making an effort to deconstruct the legitimacy of the party oligarchies. Notably, we do not consider it inevitable that the political elites control their directorates with an iron fist. ---- In Porto Alegre, south of Brazil, the protests are being organized by a strong ultra-left coalition. ---- To attain some income distribution, albeit shyly, the leadership of the Workers' Party (PT) believed it was necessary to ally with a part of the oligarchy. ...

A-infos - June 10, 2014 - 1:39pm
Robert Nozick’s interpretation of libertarianism, as a form of society guided by the invisible hand outwith the influence of the state, has generated criticism from many areas of the political spectrum. In order to avoid getting embedded in abstraction, attempts to directly address the structure of his interpretation of libertarianism must focus on testing the internal degree of theoretical cohesion, in regards to his perception of what values constitute the term libertarianism, and the external compatibility of this definition within his minarchic-capitalist outlook. Such a task will hereby be undertaken in a two-part investigation into Nozick’s philosophical thought; firstly that of critically examining the extent of rapport between selfownership and inviolable liberty, in regards to libertarianism, and secondly the condition of these in regards to ...
