Racism and Barack Obama

Perhaps it is true that no government programs have been presented so well structured: perhaps even since the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt. None had that free gift, overwhelming, indefinable, called charisma: perhaps since Ronald Reagan or from John Kennedy. And as to raise campaign contributions, Obama looks like a pyramid. (All of which sounds impressive, now that I reread. Too much, perhaps).

And-o, but as you look, “Barack Obama is black. Plus: is a black man who becomes a candidate for the presidency of the United States for a party of national dimension: it is the Word made flesh of the American dream. And but it is a black candidate, and I reproach him: black equalized, black terrorist, put black to white: they kill. Obama is called, that sounds like Osama (like bin Laden). And his middle name, because all the gringos, and Obama is gringo, have a middle name before last name is Hussein: Barack Hussein Obama, as the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein who was hanged, more to be Iraqi dictator to be. And it’s not even a tame black, a “black house,” as Harry Belafonte memorably called secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, but a barking black (within certain limits of prudence and restraint). It’s worth reading his magnificent speech on race in the United States, said in mid-campaign.

In short: it has the pluses and minuses, the benefits and burdens, of being a black in a racist society that is failing to be a very rapid steps: for there to think that when Obama was born it was almost impossible for a black American to be something other than boxer or trumpeter. The president is now almost certain age of the historic “March on Washington” in 1963 by the black civil rights. But or as well as look, “barack obama is gringo. Political gringo. In other words, the characteristics of a professional politician, a Senator, of a gringo president: hypocritically religious, militarily jingoistic inevitably imperialist. So his mother was agnostic, obama has to show he is a practicing Christian (one of the myriad of black Protestant churches of the United States: the trinity united church of christ). So his father was African and his childhood spent in Indonesia, has to be (and already put it) lapel pin with the stripes and stars to make a show of patriotism. And believe the Iraq war is crazy, and do not share the “Bush doctrine” of preventive attack, he must prove that believes in the “exceptionalism” messianic the U.S., called by providence to intervene in all world to save it. Empires are imperialist. And Barack Obama is, is about to be “Emperor of the currently prevailing empire. Better than McCain? No doubt. (And not so difficult). But the world should not be too many illusions about Barack Obama. It is on the verge of being “just the new president of the United States.

Achieving Improvements with Hard Work

It is necessary to achieve improvements, but you have to question the model, introduce variables for the dominant model, to produce a change. Following the thought of Victoria Sendon can conclude: 1 The feminism of difference is not opposed to equality, because they are not conceptually opposed. 2 The aim of this feminism is transforming the world from change women’s lives. 3 The sex difference for boys is not an essential-ism that makes them identical, but different. The purpose is not to be equal to men but to question the password of an order that makes the difference is inequality. 5 structural and legislative changes can be a starting point but not the end 6 Create a symbolic means to introduce the variable of sexual difference in all areas of life, thought, politics.

The variable is not gender, which is a sex colonized, but the difference. 7 The complicity and solidarity among women is the most powerful political baggage.

8 The power struggle begins in significance, female authority and empowerment. 9 The purpose of power is not getting charged for women, but to achieve substantive representation rather than abstract. 10 The thought of difference is an ethics based on values that women will have to define it. 11 The thought the difference replaced by the binary logic analog logic. 12 difference feminism is not a goal, but a temporary road. It is not a dogma but a search, not a sectarian doctrine, but an experience to the thread of life.


The Power of School: For a Pedagogy Libertarian a (Reconsidering Estela Hugo Zemelman and Fifth) a Orlando Lozada Gnral Sec. Education Student Center VCU School a It is well known to all that from about 1940 the individual was subdued, and minimized and subjected to subordinate groups. The individual himself, if intervened in the propulsion of such changes, but it was not the protagonist, so the education was not important, because it was generating individuals and had no category sociales1 generating major changes.

In my opinion, education is now seems to take other routes, of course, education as reflected in the school institution. Many people (and politics) who see education as an entity generating change and therefore as an institution threatening those in power, but per se, is not itself able to generate such changes, so it is more vulnerable to the submissions of the major groups for which it serves. a If it is true that explains Zemelman, a individual that has receded into the background and that education is itself an adjective that, but I still think that this has been changing after the passage of time, but not gradually, but rather a degenerative nature, as the ruling elites to have an awareness of the importance of education invested in relation to access and retention of power, (taking into account that in this globalized society, who exercises power not is only those who possess the necessary economic forces, but also those who hold in their hands the information and thus to the generation of knowledge) education itself has come to subjugate the very being whom she served.

The Campaign to Succeed

The excellent campaign being undertaken by the FC Barcelona, in the absence of a party to complete half of the league, it takes twelve points to the second, having lost only the first match (ie has not lost in league since 31 August), makes us wonder what are the keys to its success. The style of Pep Pep Guardiola was a player with style, class, worked to spread the game. Besides showing and demonstrating ways now as a coach: humility, education, respect for the opponent, but this, of course, tempered by the ambition of winning. As a coach is demonstrating that knows how to apply these qualities to your computer, and has managed to put together a star cast of world class players from the quarry, which everyone knows the role it plays great and runs (almost) perfection. Is it possible to extrapolate this to the business world? Of course, if we analyze the case we can see reflected Guardiola clear parallels with the management of an enterprise: In this case, it is an employee of a lifetime (although part of his career was out), who knows the company inside out, and therefore their culture.

Has managed to express a vision and mission, and players know what they have to do to realize the strategy. And of course, as usual in the world of football, and not in the company, know your opponents, and himself, uncertain about his SWOT matrix and positioning, and learn from best practices of competition ( benchmarking). This collection allows you to improve performance, the productivity of its management unit, and therefore the results (note the completely different results sometimes get a coach over another having the same computer). Also promotes the quarry, providing a career plan (this is not only merit of Guardiola, but is keeping politics for many years the club, and it has allowed the great players at a reduced cost.)

Politics, Puzzles and Power

At that knows my good friend Ramon Guillermo Aveledo, managing and administering his great ability to mediate the teams competing in the League of Professional Politics Venezuela. Has been devoted to Sudoku. I remain committed to the puzzles, the politicians, of course. The puzzles have become a Sudoku. Big mistake. The unit is a puzzle, not a Sudoku.

The country is a puzzle, not a Sudoku. The country is a complex body, not a set of equipment required and disabled who decided to compete more constrained, not each other but get the same computer. The team players are few. The crowd is a complex country, a fabric, a body, the crowd that we must appeal to solve the puzzle by its frame to restore the original figure. The original figure of this puzzle, the image that appears when the weapon is called country called Venezuela. It is the crowd that makes the decisions, the first structure, the second producing the answers.

The puzzle assembly is unity. No other unit. This is unity. We must remind Venezuelans are a nation. We must remind Venezuelans who are one people. We have to remind Venezuelans that the fact of living here has given us an initial culture which has become fractured mercilessly to the point of becoming a million pieces of a huge puzzle. We must remind Venezuelans must recover the magnet that we have in our being and return to combine with each other and then get rid of the seams and re-transmit the idea of a social body that knows how to manage the necessary contradictions and points of conjunction and get running. It is necessary to warn Venezuelans of purposes and goals. It is necessary to tell the fellow political system we will establish when you pass the interregnum and as we do with the economic system that this is the result and as we once and for all to take off on the full force of the XXI century. We start with the unit, down, into us in Venezuela. No other unit. This is unity. We must specify how we will achieve the transition. Note that limited to the election is a Sudoku tricked. Is going or not going to elections if they are part of a strategy, because when the elections are themselves the strategy falls into a disappointing aberration called electioneering that does not support mathematical explanation or justification. We may have to live the disappointment as the trigger that allows the country to stop being a puzzle to return to nationhood. Perhaps, but the teachings of Sudoku solvers must help us to understand in a once and for all that unity is the people with a decision in hand, one that goes to resist until resist is synonymous with action.

When a child looks to the puzzle as a difficult task almost impossible. When you have acquired the maturity and puzzles are not made because the puzzles disappear before chilling force of will held in the beam. I speak of the political puzzle, then I’ll deal with them, not the puzzles that have castles and fairies, wizards and harlequins or images of cities in the mythology. Unless I take care of Sudoku, and resolved in the Electoral Procedures Act. I call to unity. I am a loyal supporter of the unit. The unit is imperative. No other unit. This is unity. Let us stop being a puzzle, look for the metamorphosis, the unexpected. This is unity. No other unit. Essayist, novelist, poet, poetry translator, lawyer, diplomat. Author of more than 30 books

Building a Nation

Which leads to the conclusion that to build a nation has to do with culture as training, as one must understand the German term meaning Bildunf image, imagination and development. Today the term in pedagogy Bildunf concerns all students, which means that this activity was re-school the object. The Bildunf wing is a process and once an outcome. In this conception to start all being deprived of a form and Bildunf represents this movement toward a form to have your own. It is not fixed forms but a way becoming, in the process, a way to search. Key example can be that the blade is shaped, but not fixed because it had a process to form. Bildunf is also a work of art to the Greeks.

An art of living. The characteristic of the artist, is a power production and training. Thus, in our modern society, training children not to follow rules, if not help to want their own autonomy. We must talk of consistency that makes a link between theory and practice. Evaluating is not formed. You have to waste time in helping to reflect, take and build their own lives and find new ways to form.

Ethical and moral is that teachers reflect on the following questions in their pedagogical: How to provide good teaching? What will become a good in training? , “Use an appropriate method for the learning process of my students? How was my emotional relationship with my students? “I was fair with my students? Did I consider the contributions of each? He concluded by inviting teachers to internalize that pedagogy is unethical, as it leads to reflection and acts standing questions about the pedagogical practices and to follow the following statements:? Take the educational act at the level of ethics? Take the school as a place of pleasure? Clarify that the order of society is politics, and the order of knowledge is the pedagogy. The policy must be subordinated to the pedagogy and pedagogy to politics, as you currently manifested in the world. The society is made by the school and no school for society. Reflect a good image in society? Insist on good values? Take a critical attitude and never forget that it can be otherwise. Take education as a path that has no limits? Asking about our actions is a requirement? Providing a good education.

Freedom is a Gift From God

The second is freedom: freedom is the supreme gift of God to man after life. So sacred is the obligation incumbent on all to respect freedom, and to respect life. Man has the same right to one than the other, because it was given by God Himself. Without freedom life is not worth living. There is no doctrine that defends freedom more than the Christian.

It teaches that without freedom there can be no holiness. There is no holiness without virtue, nor virtue without merit or merit no liability or responsibility without freedom. Proclaim liberty as the inviolable heritage of each and every one of the men of humanity, and as an Argentine citizen maintain the inviolability of the independence of our homeland, defending the concept of nation-state. The third is justice: justice is the balance between morality and law. “The fair is always moral. ” The world we live in is being as the realm of injustice.

An individualism that to satisfy his ambition has been stripped of all divine and human brake, multiplying the victims of men, classes and peoples. The people tolerate the policy mistakes and the erring moral leadership. But when multiplied injustice they create economic distress, and begin to be plagued by poverty, advance the time of the rebellions and revolutions. Some time ago, our republic was attacked with the breakdown of democracy by a treacherous blow that he gave much of our material heritage. The democracies are formal, significant difference between formal and real. These, the first, increased borrowing us into these dangerous limits.

More important than the living space of the nations in the world, is the vital space of the families within the villages. With the polity and paid explanation could be given to the great failures of this grotesquely they call “politics” being a great game of egos and ambitions. Pius XII: “Politics is the act of brotherly love more sublime.” It is time to resignations, or see what no one wants. The despair has not been good counselor at the time of trouble. May God source of all reason and justice, enlighten the minds and hearts of our rulers.

The Peace Corps and Humanitarian Programs

Seems not heard of the Peace Corps and other humanitarian aid programs that the United States provides for the planet for 50 years, with the result that the recipients never considered sufficient and hate Americans to death. Another genius obsessed surprisingly dangerous level of incongruity, is Daniel Barenboim. As musical shines in its ability, so does in his political impotence. Barenboim (66) is an Argentine Jew, Israeli citizen with Palestinian citizenship, who lives in Germany. Palestinian citizenship must be either very easy or very difficult to acquire because there is no country called Palestine. Either way, the fact that Barenboim prefer to have the identity of the enemies of those who gave it cover, is a pattern of the class of existential labyrinth is inside.

In a blow to reality, about two weeks ago, the Arabs decided to boycott those who protect her performance in Ramallah where I wanted to give a concert, almost simultaneously with Leonard Cohen (75), my composer, singer and favorite poet. Another good and candid gifted Jew who seeks peace, but that does not understand the Middle East. The boycott arose because both artists as well as advocate for the Palestinians, also defend Israel, a fact that Muslims are intolerant because they do not support the right of existence of the Jewish state. The Palestinians do not want peace or coexistence with the Jews. If there are Jews who do not understand this, it is time to locate.

Most of us have music and reading as a hobby. For Chopra, Cohen Barenboim and his hobby is politics. If they were not famous, their views and proposals to solve global problems would be less relevant than the barber or the driver. If these ports he had devoted to politics the same time and dedication to the activities that made them famous, would be rewarding listen. Meanwhile, they are so consistent and interesting as Henry Kissinger talking about pastries. International Analyst Biography Short Biography Jose Brechner was born in Bolivia.

The three volumes of critical writings (the individual, management and society) meet its main ideas. Gestiopolis.com also points us on Drucker, who worked as a journalist in Germany, mixing his business with politics from 1920 until the fall of the Republic of Weimar.

Doctor Honoris Causa several universities in USA, Belgium, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and United Kingdom. His lectures are crowded, hates all kinds of compliments. It is plain, simple, visionary, poignant and vital. A long and fruitful life as a knowledge worker program specializing in Quality Management and Productivity Area Faces graduate of the University of Carabobo, Valencia, Venezuela, be aware of the recall in this extraordinary thinker of the administration, Moreover, many of his works have been analyzed, studied and evaluated in favor of considering their contributions, so as to encourage the growth of students of management according to the reality of the scenarios in the present, and especially before turbulent stage, risky, uncertain, as currently facing the Venezuelan business sector. Consider his remark very valid program that is based practice of management, the discipline attached to it requires practice to be applied. Only when a practice is enough mature scholars can make important contributions, because without practice can not produce academic contribution to Management.
