The Ideology Of Terror: Why We Will Never Win The 'War', Katie Rose Guest Pryal Dec 2005

The Ideology Of Terror: Why We Will Never Win The 'War', Katie Rose Guest Pryal

Katie Rose Guest Pryal

A few days after the criminal attacks on the World Trade Center, President George W. Bush declared a metaphorical war on terror. The word “war” was once again applied to a nebulous concept in hopes of rallying support to Bush’s plans. Had Bush declared war on “terrorism,” a noun that denotes physical acts of violence, the war would have remained attached to the material world. By declaring war on “terror,” America’s enemy became ephemeral and eternal. Using Althusser's theory of ideology, this article demonstrates how the public rhetoric of terror created an “ideology of terror” that created ...


Prosecuting Raskolnikov: A Literary And Legal Look At “Consciousness Of Guilt” Evidence, Dan E. Stigall Nov 2005

Prosecuting Raskolnikov: A Literary And Legal Look At “Consciousness Of Guilt” Evidence, Dan E. Stigall

Dan E. Stigall

In all literature, there is perhaps no better example of a man wrestling with the knowledge of his own guilt than that of Raskolnikov in Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment. Within the struggles of the main character, the reader sees numerous examples of behavior that demonstrate a suspect’s consciousness of guilt: disposing of the evidence, giving false exculpatory statements, fleeing the scene, and displaying an unusually nervous demeanor. Modern jurisprudence reveals that such behavior is admissible in contemporary criminal trials for the purpose of establishing guilt, highlighting the importance of acute observation of an accused’s actions while demonstrating ...

Vogelgriep En Tamiflu. In Geval Van Pandemie Zal België Geen Generische Equivalenten Gebruiken, Zelfs Al Is Er Gebrek Aan Merkproducten, Daniel De Beer, Serge Gutwirth, Isabelle Stengers, Jean Paul Van Bendegem Nov 2005

Vogelgriep En Tamiflu. In Geval Van Pandemie Zal België Geen Generische Equivalenten Gebruiken, Zelfs Al Is Er Gebrek Aan Merkproducten, Daniel De Beer, Serge Gutwirth, Isabelle Stengers, Jean Paul Van Bendegem

Serge Gutwirth

Er wordt ons gezegd dat de regering zijn wapens scherpt tegenover de dreiging van de vogelgriep. Zelfs al zijn er wel degelijk maatregelen genomen, dan toch zegt de regering niet alles en speelt zij Russische roulette. Indien een pandemie zich tijdens de komende twee jaar kan ontwikkelen, dan is de kans groot dat ze erg moorddadig zal zijn. Dit is des te absurder daar zulke dramatische ontknoping gemakkelijk kan worden vermeden

The Problem Of Moral Dirigisme: A New Argument Against Moralistic Legislation, Mario Rizzo Nov 2005

The Problem Of Moral Dirigisme: A New Argument Against Moralistic Legislation, Mario Rizzo

Mario Rizzo

This Article applies a theory of rational choice to moral decisionmaking. In this theory, agents act primarily on local and personal knowledge to instantiate moral principles, virtues and moral goods. The State may seek to prevent them from acting as they independently determine by prescribing or proscribing certain conduct by formal legal means. If its purpose is to ensure that people act morally or become better persons, we call this “moral dirigisme.” Our thesis is that the need to use decentralized knowledge to determine the moral status of an act makes the task of the moral dirigiste well-neigh impossible. The ...

Peace In Unity: 19th Century Irenic Motivations In European Unification, Robert Taft Keele Oct 2005

Peace In Unity: 19th Century Irenic Motivations In European Unification, Robert Taft Keele

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The Hauptargumenten of politicians and citizens concerning the advantages and disadvantages of the EU are almost exclusively economic or political in nature: lower tariffs; loss of monetary instruments; immigration; disenfranchisement; etc. The object of my thesis is to remind everyone, amid the flurry of speculation and uncertainty prevalent in Europe since the French rejection of the EU constitution, that a major benefit of the European integration is peace, on a continent that has been ravaged by war for centuries. I prove that the establishment of peace was a major element in European unification by confirming links between peace movements and ...

Law, Boundaries, And City Life In Early Modern Poland-Lithuania, Magda Teter Aug 2005

Law, Boundaries, And City Life In Early Modern Poland-Lithuania, Magda Teter

Early Modern Workshop: Resources in Jewish History

The dynamics of relations within cities thus are shaped not only by class or religious or ethnic membership but also by the legal framework. In the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, divisions between the private and royal domains within cities disrupted not only their legal coherence but also that of Jewish communities themselves, sharpening economic competition and often also conflict. This is what the 1711 decree of the Lithuanian Tribunal against the kahal of Minsk highlights--legal distinctions sometimes exacerbated urban tensions.

The Personal Record Book Of Hayyim Gundersheim Dayyan (1774), Edward Fram

Early Modern Workshop: Resources in Jewish History

Rabbinic courts were and remain an integral part of the Jewish community and the Jewish community in Frankfurt in the late eighteenth century had not one but two such courts. The courts handled a wide range of issues including divorces, contracts, real estate transactions, trusts, estates, and also gave opinions on the scope of Jewish communal authority. This particular case deals with a house on the so called "Judengasse" in Frankfurt. The Jewish ghetto was divided up into lots that had names rather than street numbers and houses on the lots were often owned by more than one family. The ...

Setting The Table Doesn't Mean The Guests Will Come To Dinner: Televised Courts In Australia, Jane Johnston May 2005

Setting The Table Doesn't Mean The Guests Will Come To Dinner: Televised Courts In Australia, Jane Johnston

Jane Johnston

The Australian courts are entering their second decade of experimentation with televised court proceedings. Yet, the process has been slow and largely unfulfilling for both the courts and the television networks. Developments in this field, compared to other countries, notably the United States, Canada and New Zealand, have progressed only on an ad hoc basis. A preliminary study indicates that the management in television newsrooms, notably news directors, have not been proactive in gaining camera access in any systematic or unified way. Indeed, the courts have argued: “we got the table set but nobody came to dinner”. In contrast, the ...


Ordeal By Trial: Judicial References To The Nightmare World Of Franz Kafka, Parker B. Potter Jr. May 2005

Ordeal By Trial: Judicial References To The Nightmare World Of Franz Kafka, Parker B. Potter Jr.

The University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] "Franz Kafka’s novel The Trial is firmly entrenched in the modern consciousness as an exemplar of judicial indifference to the most basic rights of citizens to understand the nature of criminal proceedings directed against them. Yet, Kafka was not mentioned in an American judicial opinion until forty years after his death in 1924. Since the mid 1970s, however, Kafka’s name has appeared in more than 400 opinions written by American state and federal judges. Judges have used Kafka to criticize bureaucratic absurdity, unfair tribunals of all sorts, and even their own colleagues on the other side of ...
