Ao longo do tempo temo-nos afirmado como “humanos”, mas de “humanos” temos muito pouco. A inveja, a calúnia, o preconceito, a mentira, o dizer mal das outras pessoas tornou-se uma epidemia mundial. Vivemos mais preocupados em falar (mal) da vida dos outros do que preocupar-nos com o que realmente é importante: com a nossa própria vida, com a nossa felicidade.
Down With Elections! by Campbell Wallace

We assume that elections mean freedom, but is this true? Do we get a democratic government when we vote? If not, what is wrong? "Elections!" says the author. He lists their failings and shows that our "representative democracy" is neither representative nor democratic, and does not meet accepted standards. He then presents a practical route to true democracy.

La democracia concebida por Platón en su República estaba configurada para la élite y a favor de la aristocracia. Con el paso de los siglos se pensó en una democracia en la que el pueblo gobernaba para el pueblo. Pero no cabemos todos en el Palacio Legislativo, por eso enviamos a nuestros representantes para que luchen por nosotros.

Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 14,680. Language: English. Published: August 27, 2015. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion and Spirituality » Religion and politics, Essay » Political
Christian Zionism, or the unconditional support for everything Israel, is a movement passionately followed by about 30 million Americans. The author was one of them, but has come to believe after years of study that they are being deceived for political purposes and worse, that they are partly responsible for morally reprehensible acts contrary to Christianity. Many references.

Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 9,070. Language: English. Published: August 25, 2015. Categories: Nonfiction » Politics and Current Affairs » Current affairs, Essay » Political
This book starts out as a collection of jokes about the folks on the political left. Then it gets progressively funnier. The humor gets applied more liberally as it goes along, so-to-speak. It is a book that is radically funny at times. Revolutionary humor, you might say. Left me in stitches. So enlighten up already and jump right in where I left off.

The lesson from the foregoing discussion is that the natures of all types of government are authoritarian and that a government’s interest to preserve its elites and politicians is different from people’s interests to continue receiving public benefits.
Literary Liberties by Richard Lung
Price: Free! Words: 83,010. Language: English. Published: August 14, 2015. Categories: Essay » Literature, Essay » Political
Literary Liberties with reality allow us to do the impossible of being other people from all over the world. Just as this world may be only one of many, that we cannot reach, a human version of the many worlds theory may be made a fact thru fiction.

Oliver McCann, author of The 1% Mindset series of self-help books, analyses the immigration crisis currently unfolding as thousands of immigrants attempt to enter Britain via the Channel Tunnel. Both the political left and political right are missing a trick, he says. By setting up internment camps in Kent, immigrants can be a resourceful workforce on low pay rather than a drain on the taxpayer.

Reflectir sobre a história egípcia e entender as características e componentes da sua política talvez seja melhor dizer das suas políticas , além de estimulante (pela captação das subtilezas e nuances a elas associadas no decurso dos múltiplos períodos da sua longa histórica), é essencial pela compreensão que induz da própria comunidade egípcia (antropologia política)(...)
Delenda Moçambique by Maria Antonina Magalhães
Price: $3.75 USD. Words: 36,120. Language: Portuguese. Published: July 27, 2015 by Chiado Editora. Categories: Essay » Political
Se por um lado Machel falava num Moçambique para todos, sem distinção de cores, desde que cada um se identificasse com a linha da Frelimo, por outro lado o ardor das suas palavras contra o branco, visando sempre com afincada insistência os missionários e as religiosas; o rancor que lhe vibrava na voz quando se referia aos portugueses, levantava uma tremenda suspeita.
