Cannibalism and the Chinese Body Politic: Hermeneutics and Violence in Cross-Cultural Perception

Cannibalism and the Chinese Body Politic: Hermeneutics and Violence in Cross-Cultural Perception




    One question that always stymies us–that is, why cannot people eat people?

    Zhu Yu

  1. Rumors of cannibalism began to circulate over the internet during the early
    months of last year (2001), typically accompanied by graphic photos of a Chinese
    man calmly chewing on what appears to be a dismembered human fetus (see Figure 1),
    together with sensational commentary along the lines of:



    What u are going to witness here is a fact, don’t get scared !” It’s
    Taiwan’s hottest food…” In Taiwan, dead babies or fetuses could be
    bought at $50 to $70 from hospitals to meet the high demand for grilled
    and barbecued babies … What a sad state of affairs!! (“Fetus”)

  2. These internet rumors began to achieve a modicum of legitimacy in
    mid-March, when
    the small Malaysian tabloid Warta Perdana fed a growing
    international controversy in reporting that a certain Taiwanese restaurant was
    serving a dish consisting of

Description : In the bestselling tradition of The Interestings and A Little Life, this keenly felt and expertly written novel by the author of the “savvy, heartfelt, and utterly engaging” (Alice McDermott) Bed-Stuy Is Burning follows four longtime friends as they navigate love, commitment, and forgiveness while the world around them changes beyond recognition. New York City is still regaining its balance in the years following 9/11, when four twenty-somethings—Tess, Tazio, David, and Angelica—meet in a bar, each yearning for something: connection, recognition, a place in the world, a cause to believe in. Nearly fifteen years later, as their city recalibrates in the wake of the 2016 election, their bond has endured—but almost everything else has changed.

Mexico – Government

Mexico – Government

Mexico Table of Contents

FOR MORE THAN THREE GENERATIONS, Mexicans have attributed the origins
of their political system to the Revolution of 1910-20. They cite the
constitution of 1917, a sweeping document that capped nearly a decade of
civil war among rival regional militias, as the foundation of their
modern political institutions and practices. Mexico’s governing
institutions and political culture also bear the imprint of three
centuries of Spanish colonial rule. Mexicans’ adherence to a highly
codified civil law tradition, their acceptance of heavy state
involvement in business and civic affairs, and the deference accorded
the executive over other branches of government can be traced to the
administrative and legal practices of the colonial period. Finally, the
traumatic experiences of the nineteenth century, including foreign
military occupations and the loss of half of the national territory to
the United States, as well as the disillusion sown by a series of

There are 130,000 Personal Support Workers (PSWs) in Ontario alone. They are a vital link in the healthcare chain for people that need assistance at home, or in long-term care. They assist people who are seriously ill, and the elderly, and they perform a variety of functions including help with healthcare needs, personal assistance, palliative care, supportive care, and work around the house like cooking and housekeeping. So why do we know so little about them?

This week on the podcast, we’re going to dig into the working life, and the challenges faced, by Ontario’s PSWs, and we’re doing this in the wake of the recent news that the fourth PSW in Ontario has died from COVID-19. Sharon Roberts, a PSW at Downsview Long Term Care in North York, was one of 46 staff members to contract COVID at that facility, and in these precarious times for all employees in

Im-Politic: A World Trade Organization Pull-Out Proposal that Falls Sadly Short

Im-Politic: A World Trade Organization Pull-Out Proposal that Falls Sadly Short

I can barely describe how much I wanted to like Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley’s May 6 op-ed piece in The New York Times calling for a U.S. withdrawal from the World Trade Organization (WTO). That’s why I can also barely describe the growing disappointment I felt as I read through it.  At best, it deserves only an “A for effort” grade.

First, let’s give Hawley (considerable) credit where it’s due. As I’ve been arguing since it went into business at the start of 1995, and in fact was predicting during the national debate preceding Congress’ approval of the idea the fall before, the WTO has gravely harmed crucial American economic interests. (This recent post briefy summarizes my views.)

Let’s also give The Times op-ed page credit for running an article that’s even more strongly opposed to the pre-Trump U.S. trade policy status quo than President Trump has been –

How To Become A Politician

How To Become A Politician

Do you have an interest in government and in making things better, either in your local community or on a state or national level? Regardless of the type of politician you aspire to become, if you want to be a politician in the United States, you should follow these steps:

New Year’s resolution: Let’s exercise our body politic

New Year’s resolution: Let’s exercise our body politic

The New Year is a time of reflection and renewal. We look back on the past year — or in this case, the past decade — and we make resolutions for the year ahead.

What if our collective New Year’s resolution this year was not your traditional “go to the gym more,” but, rather, exercising the whole body politic? What would that workout plan look like?

Democracy is like a muscle. The more we exercise it, the stronger it gets. The more people engage in civil society, the more representative, responsive, and productive our society becomes. Like healthy muscles, a healthy democracy tends to have benefits too — better civil rights protections, a stronger social safety net, and a legal system that works for the many, not just the few.

Having lived in parts of the world where civil society is weak, I appreciate the extraordinary power that ordinary people

Imperialism and the political economy of the Holocaust

By
Nick Beams

12 May 2010

This lecture was delivered at San Diego State University on April 29. It was the eighth in a series entitled “Killing for a higher cause: Political violence in a world in crisis” sponsored by the Institute on World Affairs within the Political Science Department of the San Diego State University.

It is now almost seven decades since Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime initiated their program for the mass murder of all European Jews. Our sense of the enormity of this crime has not diminished with the passing of time. On the contrary, the significance of the Holocaust is underscored by events now unfolding—wars of imperialist and colonial aggression in the name of a “war on terror”, deepening rivalries between the major capitalist powers and a breakdown of the capitalist economic order recalling the crises
