    POLITICAL THEORY - Karl Marx

    9:28

    Karl Marx remains deeply important today not as the man who told us what to replace capitalism with, but as someone who brilliantly pointed out certain of its problems. The School of Life, a pro-Capitalist institution, takes a look. If you like our films, take a look at our shop (we ship worldwide):


    FURTHER READING

    “Most people agree that we need to improve our economic system somehow. It threatens our planet through excessive consumption, distracts us with irrelevant advertising, leaves people hungry and without healthcare, and fuels unnecessary wars. Yet we’re also often keen to dismiss the ideas of its most famous and ambitious critic, Karl Marx. This isn’t very surprising. In practice, his political and economic ideas have been used to design disastrously planned economies and nasty dictatorships. Frankly, the remedies Marx proposed for the ills of the world now sound a bit demented. He thought we should abolish private property. People should not be allowed to own things. At certain moments one can sympathise. But it’s like wanting to ban gossip or forbid watching television. It’s going to war with human behaviour. And Marx believed the world would be put to rights by a dictatorship of the proletariat; which does not mean anything much today. Openly Marxist parties received a total of only 1,685 votes in the 2010 UK general election, out of the nearly 40 million ballots cast…”

    What is POLITICS? What does POLITICS mean? POLITICS meaning, definition & explanation

    What is POLITICS? What does POLITICS mean? POLITICS meaning - POLITICS definition - POLITICS explanation - How to pronounce POLITICS?

    Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under license.

    Politics (from Greek: politikos, definition of, for, or relating to citizens) is the process of making uniform decisions applying to all members of a group. It also involves the use of power by one person to affect the behavior of another person. More narrowly, it refers to achieving and exercising positions of governance — organized control over a human community, particularly a state. Furthermore, politics is the study or practice of the distribution of power and resources within a given community (a usually hierarchically organized population) as well as the interrelationship(s) between communities.

    A variety of methods are employed in politics, which include promoting or forcing one's own political views among people, negotiation with other political subjects, making laws, and exercising force, including warfare against adversaries. Politics is exercised on a wide range of social levels, from clans and tribes of traditional societies, through modern local governments, companies and institutions up to sovereign states, to the international level.

    It is very often said that politics is about power. A political system is a framework which defines acceptable political methods within a given society. History of political thought can be traced back to early antiquity, with seminal works such as Plato's Republic, Aristotle's Politics and the works of Confucius.

    Formal Politics refers to the operation of a constitutional system of government and publicly defined institutions and procedures. Political parties, public policy or discussions about war and foreign affairs would fall under the category of Formal Politics. Many people view formal politics as something outside of themselves, but that can still affect their daily lives.

    Informal Politics is understood as forming alliances, exercising power and protecting and advancing particular ideas or goals. Generally, this includes anything affecting one's daily life, such as the way an office or household is managed, or how one person or group exercises influence over another. Informal Politics is typically understood as everyday politics, hence the idea that politics is everywhere.

    What is COMPARATIVE POLITICS? What does COMPARATIVE POLITICS mean?

    3:23

    What is COMPARATIVE POLITICS? What does COMPARATIVE POLITICS mean? COMPARATIVE POLITICS meaning - COMPARATIVE POLITICS definition - COMPARATIVE POLITICS explanation.

    Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under license.

    Comparative politics is a field in political science, characterized by an empirical approach based on the comparative method. In other words, comparative politics is the study of the domestic politics, political institutions, and conflicts of countries. It often involves comparisons among countries and through time within single countries, emphasizing key patterns of similarity and difference. Arend Lijphart argues that comparative politics does not have a substantive focus in itself, but rather a methodological one: it focuses on the how but does not specify the what of the analysis. In other words, comparative politics is not defined by the object of its study, but rather by the method it applies to study political phenomena. Peter Mair and Richard Rose advance a slightly different definition, arguing that comparative politics is defined by a combination of a substantive focus on the study of countries' political systems and a method of identifying and explaining similarities and differences between these countries using common concepts. Rose states that, on his definition: The focus is explicitly or implicitly upon more than one country, thus following familiar political science usage in excluding within-nation comparison. Methodologically, comparison is distinguished by its use of concepts that are applicable in more than one country.

    When applied to specific fields of study, comparative politics may be referred to by other names, such as for example comparative government (the comparative study of forms of government) or comparative foreign policy (comparing the foreign policies of different States in order to establish general empirical connections between the characteristics of the State and the characteristics of its foreign policy).

    Sometimes, especially in the United States, the term comparative politics is used to refer to the politics of foreign countries. This usage of the term, however, is often considered incorrect.

    Comparative political science as a general term for an area of study, as opposed to a methodology of study, can be seen as redundant. The political only shows as political when either an overt or tacit comparison is being made. A study of a single political entity, whether a society, subculture or period, would show the political as simple brute reality without comparison with another society, subculture, or period.

    The highest award in the discipline of Comparative Politics is the Karl Deutsch award, awarded by the International Political Science Association. So far, it has been given to Juan Linz (2003), Charles Tilly (2006), Giovanni Sartori (2009), and Alfred Stepan (2012).

    Political Ideology: Crash Course Government and Politics #35

    8:47

    So today Craig is going to look at political ideology in America. We're going to focus on liberals and conservatives and talk about the influencers of both of these viewpoints. Now, it's important to remember that political ideologies don't always perfectly correspond with political parties, and this correspondence becomes less and less likely over time. So, sure we can say that Democrats tend to be liberal and Republicans tend to be conservative, but we're not going to be talking about political parties in this episode. It's also important to note, that there are going to be a lot of generalizations here, as most peoples' ideologies fall on a spectrum, but we're going to try our best *crosses fingers* to summarize the most commonly held viewpoints for each of these positions as they are used pretty frequently in discussions of American politics.

Don't know why, but I could never seem to locate Part 6.

    The Seth and Mandy Show

    3:51

    My brother and sister-in-law (among others) were featured on an NBC Dateline special about the work they do at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto. There's a good close-up of Seth inspecting the artificial heart (at 1:45) and a whole series of shots of Mandy walking the patient through the hallways (at 2:44, the little girl runs over Mandy's toes!). Anyway, they do pretty amazing stuff at that hospital ... and yes, I'd think so even if Seth and Mandy didn't work there!

You have chosen wisely to take this course, because in it we shall break down all the complexities of the subject into basic terms and facts, including the various historical backgrounds you will need to completely understand Advanced Placement Comparative Government.

    To further assist you in achieving an ‘A’ level in an for Advanced Placement Comparative Government course and/or a ‘5’ score on the Advanced Placement Comparative Government exam I have created a totally comprehensive workbook for the course. This workbook includes multiple-choice questions, key terms, and free-response questions all of which have been carefully crafted to test all possible points on the exam.

    If you pay careful attention to the Video-on-Demand lessons, apply yourself wholly to complete the workbook, and read the assigned chapters of the textbook you are assured achieving an ‘A’ level in an Advanced Placement Comparative Government course and/or a ‘5’ score on the Advanced Placement Comparative Government exam.
