The Political Theology Of Michael Novak: Democratic Capitalism Confronts Liberation Theology, Glenn Tremper Apr 1984

The Political Theology Of Michael Novak: Democratic Capitalism Confronts Liberation Theology, Glenn Tremper

Theology Undergraduate Theses

According to Novak, a large number of religious thinkers favor a socialist approach to economics. Novak reveals that he too once shared this bias. He has undertaken the project of defending democratic capitalism with the aim of explaining why his opinions concerning political economy have changed. Novak may liken himself to Plato’s Good Philosopher, having ascended out of the cave of political naivete and seen the light that democratic capitalism has to offer. And, like the Good Philosopher, he has returned to the arena of his prior misconception to demonstrate the illusory nature of the ideals of socialism. Novak ...


Ethical Image In The Rhetoric Of Gary Hart, Samuel Dail Lewis Jan 1984

Ethical Image In The Rhetoric Of Gary Hart, Samuel Dail Lewis

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

To many voters, the words make the man. Many voters interpret the personality projected by a politician's speech as the candidate's real self.

The Palestinian Right To Self-Determination And Statehood, Beth Holland Jan 1984

The Palestinian Right To Self-Determination And Statehood, Beth Holland

Honors Theses

Israel and the United States believe that the Israelis have the right to exist as a nation and that the Palestinians do not have this right. The Palestinians believe that Israel, with the help of the United States, has usurped their land, and that they, the Palestinians, have the right to self-determination and statehood.

Who, then, is right, and who is wrong? The writer of this paper believes that Israel's right to statehood has been used to justify the suffering of the Palestinians. When right is used to sanction another's misery, it becomes wrong. Therefore, hoping that she ...

Radicals And Immigrants: Senator William H. King's Response To Nativism, 1917-1924, Craig D. Galli

All Theses and Dissertations

When Senator William Henry King took office in 1917, Utah and the nation were apprehensive about the presence of large numbers of foreign born aliens and citizens. Utah's King joined the wartime hysteria and promoted many nativistic policies directed against the foreign born population. During the post-war Red Scare he continued his crusade, concentrating on the suppression of Bolsheviks and the Industrial Workers of the World.

But when Congress passed the Immigration Act of 1924--a nativistic law designed to curtail the immigration of southern and eastern Europeans--King was the bill's only opponent from the West or South. Since ...


The Fragmentation Of The Ulster Unionist Party, Declan Lawson George Hall Jan 1984

The Fragmentation Of The Ulster Unionist Party, Declan Lawson George Hall

Masters Theses

In 1973, the Ulster Unionist Party fragmented after fifty years as the dominant party within Northern Ireland. However, this fragmentation did not simply occur in reaction to the events of the 1960's and early 1970's. It was a long ongoing process that can be traced back to the 1940's and 1950's.

This study is concerned with the splintering of the Ulster Unionist Party and the reasons that lay behind the division. The first contention in this thesis is that the Ulster Unionist Party was never the single united political party that it was often supposed to ...
