Bridging Heaven & Earth Presents The New "I Am" Series: Sherry Ackerman Bridging Heaven & Earth is delighted and honored to introduce our new "I Am" series. These short (under 5 minute) introductions to the wondrous Bridging guests, and other Bridging family members, are meant to serve as a beautiful awakening to the opportunity presented by the Bridging guests and their longer, more comprehensive Bridging show interviews. Enjoy. Sherry's full Interview on Bridging Show # 270 is at: Sherry refers to herself as a socially engaged philosopher who believes in "doing philosophy on the streets". It's not that she hasn't done the academic scene. She accumulated four, yes four, graduate degrees and did a 35-year stint as a Philosophy Professor. Then, one day a light-bulb went off inside her head that reminded her that Socrates had done his thing "on the streets" and not in the ivory tower. So, she waved goodbye to the University and has been out there—among the flotsam and jetsam of Humanity—ever since. But, what does that really mean? It means that she has spent more time with horses than humans—time that steered her toward learning how to homestead and create green solutions for modern living. She has cultivated a deep insight into what constitutes real sustainability. She's decided that sustainable living is a cornerstone of integrated spirituality. She is not talking about recyclable grocery bags and hybrid automobiles. Sure, they are a start—but she is talking about something much deeper. Radical lifestyle change based on ...
22. Fascists European Civilization, 1648-1945 (HIST 202) While *** Germany's crimes were unprecedented, Adolf Hitler himself was in many respects a typical figure. An idle youth, of seemingly mediocre talents, his political career and passionate hatreds were formed by the experience of World War I. The rise of fascism in Germany, as elsewhere, must be understood in the context of a postwar climate of resentment and instability. Germany's economic crisis, in particular, led the middle classes to support National Socialism well before any other group. This resentment would find a ready outlet in the form of increasingly persecuted minority populations, above all the Jews. In considering ***sm against the backdrop of a more general wave of extreme rightwing and fascist political sentiment, it is important to note that the policies of the Third Reich were not only known to but also endorsed by the majority of the German population. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Yale AIDS Colloquium Series (YACS) - Philippe Bourgois "Cultivating Rage in the US Inner City: Hyper-Incarceration, Subsidized Pathology and the Moral Economy of Violence After Welfare" For the past four years, our drug sales block in the Puerto Rican corner of inner-city Philadelphia has been subject to a routinized whirlwind of shootings, stabbings and assaults. The narcotics industry filled the void left by deindustrialization turning the city's former factory district into an open-air narcotics supermarket staffed at the entry level by young Puerto Ricans serving primarily poor white injectors. A dynamic of embodied primitive accumulation kills, maims, disables or incarcerates most of this industry's entry-level employees and customers. Artificially high profit margins depend on coercion: 1) An inelastic demand for addictive products; 2) The scarcity effects of zero-tolerance policing; and 3) the brutality of wannabe monopoly drug lords in the absence of state-sanctioned legal recourse. With the end of welfare entitlements, social services attempts to subsidize vulnerable individuals by diagnosing scarred bodies and brains as proof of permanent cognitive disability in need of heavy pharmaceutical medications. An overdetermined habitus/subjectivity of rage carries material, social and psycho-dynamic valences. It insures success in the drug economy, social solidarity within shattered families and minimal income for the no-longer-worthy poor. It also propels hyper-incarceration, expands psychiatric diagnoses and opens ...
Lukacs' contribution to Marxism | Chris Nineham | Counterforum 19 June Organised and produced by Counterforum looks at the role of two leading Marxist revolutionaries, Lenin was the leader of the Bolshevik Party and the architect of the Russian revolution. He remains the foremost Marxist theorist of political organisation. Georg Lukacs is the greatest Marxist philosopher since Marx. But he was also an active revolutionary - a commissar in the Hungarian Workers Republic of 1919. Together the writings of Lenin and Lukacs are a unique inheritance for activists today. Chris Nineham examines Lukacs unique contribution to our understanding of class consciousness and the role of political organisation in social change.

Mu Dai 無題3 Inaccurate narratives are given to the outsiders; Inaccuracies are routinized inside. Unfortunately, we all regard insiders as authorities. This happens not only on the stage of Kinsui, Tokyo, Japan, it happens all over the world. The story of salt may count for little and thus be "amusing" in our mind. However, much of crucial knowledge to the humankind may have been lost in the same pattern of the "amusing" salt.

19. Weber on Charismatic Authority Foundations of Modern Social Thought (SOCY 151) Charismatic authority, unlike traditional authority, is a revolutionary and unstable form of authority. Weber borrows the religious term of charisma and extends its use to a secular meaning. Audiences and followers believe that charismatic leaders have a close connection to a divine power, have exceptional skills, or are exemplary in some way. Charismatic leaders promise change in the future for the society and also change people's attitudes and values; in this way, charismatic authority is revolutionary in a way that traditional and legal-rational authority are not. However, charisma is unstable and deteriorates if the leader cannot produce the changes he promises or when he confronts the contradictory logics and demands of the other types of authority. There are particular ways—including search, revelation, designation, or heredity—that charismatic successors are identified, but transferring charismatic authority is difficult and not always successful. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Garfinkel's "Accounting" Ethnomethodology is the word that Garfinkel created to explain the method by which phenomenologists do their investigating. Garfinkel's Ethnomethodology can be defined as the ways in which people make sense of their world. Just as with Giddens, Garfinkel asserts that we do so many things without really having to think about them. Garfinkel wants us to think about these routinized events and activities--to uncover the taken-for-granted meanings of situations. He asks: How is it that people present themselves in an "orderly" way to others? How do you think of events and situations as orderly? Ethnomethodologists do not seek to explain behavior. Rather, ethnomethodology is a form of explanation for how people make sense of everyday life. One of the ways we make sense is by ACCOUNTING.

The Passion of Bradley Manning In May 2010, an intelligence ***yst in the US Army's 10th Mountain Division was arrested on suspicion of leaking nearly half a million classified government documents, including the infamous "Collateral Murder" gunsight video and 260000 State Department cables. After nine months in solitary confinement, the suspect now awaits court-martial in Fort Leavenworth. He is twenty-four, comes from Crescent, Oklahoma and his name is Bradley Manning. Who is Private First Class Bradley Manning? Why did he allegedly commit the largest security breach in American history--and why was it so easy? Is Manning a traitor or a whistleblower? Is long-term isolation an outrage to American values--or the new norm? Are the leaks revolutionary or a sensational nonevent? Which is the greater security threat, routinized elite secrecy or flashes of transparency? And what impact does new information really have? The astonishing leaks attributed to Bradley Manning are viewed from many angles, from Tunisia to Guantánamo Bay, from Foggy Bottom to Baghdad to small-town Oklahoma. Around the world, the eloquent alleged act of one young man obliges citizens to ask themselves if they have the right to know what their government is doing.

Manuel de Landa Part 3: Urban Economics 1 THIRD LECTURE: Urban Economics 1. The economic life of any city is vital to its performance and survival, but what concepts do we need to correctly conceptualize it? The notion of "capitalism", useful as it is to give us a rough idea of economic dynamics, is too vague to model trade, production, and the other areas of urban economics. This class introduces a more detailed ***ysis of the different types of production systems that have animated urban life in the last few centuries: economies of scale, based on routinized labor and centralized management, and economies of agglomeration, based on distributed networks of small producers and the concentration of skilled labor in either cities or in the industrial hinterlands driven by cities.
Lamb of God Remix My first experimentation with video work. This is a project for my Seminar in Arts Activism. It is an exploration of how routinized, habitual movement and sound affect the experience of the spiritual during religious ritual. Words: "Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world. Have mercy on us. Lamb of God you take away the sins of the world. Grant us peace." Featuring "Agnus Dei" Gregorian Chant and generic hip hop beat.
reflections on a visit to Zuccotti Park At about 2 pm on Nomember 28, 2011, just a few blocks from the World Trade Center site, where construction of the Freedom Tower continues in earnest, I come upon a small barricaded and heavily guarded patch of concrete ironically decked with Christmas cheer. The number of cops is wildly disproportionate to the number of activists here, with a profusion of crowd monitoring and control devices no doubt poised to quickly detect and disperse any possible resurgence or flash mob. It is immediately clear to me that Zuccotti Park will never again be occupied, at least in the way it once was by Occupy Wall Street. The site is now fully occupied by the rank and file cops, who seem utterly jaded, almost disinterested in their total domination of the scene. Nothing occurs here that is not within their purview, yet they too have no coherent message or demands, and offer no solutions to the sufferings and injustices of the day. I sense an air of desperation among the activists who congregate here daily and are evicted nightly. I hear hoarse, half-hearted, routinized voices at the mic check. The few folks holding signs at the barricade are full of strident invectives, but are largely ignored by passers-by. I feel that these remaining occupiers cling to an exhausted meme, one that the authorities at the site clearly have no intention of allowing to be rejuvenated. I am hopeful that they will soon let go of the occupation tactic in favor of advancing a larger strategy through the myriad ...
