The balance to be struck is between the citizen’s right to reliable neutral information and faith in public authorities who may have legitimate national security reasons for withholding information, but who might also misinform or attempt to spin their policies and performances for personal or partisan gain. Numerous studies suggest the US media have been too uncritical in their coverage of the Bush Administration’s policies implemented in response to the events of…Continue

“Terrorism” is a term that cannot be given a stable definition. Or rather, it can, but to do so forestalls any attempt to examine the major feature of its relation to television in the contemporary world. As the central public arena for organizing ways of picturing and talking about social and political life, TV plays a pivotal role in the contest between competing definitions, accounts and explanations of terrorism.
In proposed research which is divided is divided in…Continue

I never had the chance to live in a non-democratic society. Back in the 2010's election, my eight year old self would be found singing along to the rhythm of candidatorial advertisement jingles. If somebody would ask me about my government preference way back, I would have questioned why our country has a Democratic type of government. Why not a monarchial one? With princesses, big gowns, and horses. I was very…

Four a.m. Seated in front of the computer. I am just from bed, where I had been tossing and turning for hours, looking for sleep that was seriously evading me like the plague. This is not the first time. I should honestly sit it down and have a mature conversation. We can’t go into the new year with this dispute still ongoing. Anyway, maybe I should thank sleep for playing so hard to get because now, here I am, writing. Here I am sharing what’s on my mind with you, hoping that you…Continue

Democracy comes from a Greek word (Democritus meaning “chosen of the people”). I would define democracy as a system of government whereby the people are given the power to rule their government by choosing who and what is best for it. This…Continue

Glued to the television screen, I waited in anticipation for the 2016 U.S. presidential election results between Republican Party representative Donald Trump and Democratic Party representative Hillary Clinton.

Is it important to live in a democracy?

Democracy is premised on the normative notion that all people are equal in terms of their political rights. This in turn stipulates that citizenship in a democracy confers on each person a set of enumerated rights and obligations that ultimately also shape a larger community of people imbued with shared values. It is this aspect of democracy that makes it the…Continue

There are two forms of government that is Monarch and Democratic.
The difference between the two is that
1- In monarch you work under someone.
In democracy someone works according to your wish.
2- Leaders became generation wise.
Leaders are made according to the will of the citiens.
3- It is nearly impossible to remove the leaders.
Citizen don't vote to the bad leader and he or she can't win any election anymore.

All human history is permeated with the search for a political ideal. This search is based on social differentiation. It is the social stratification that motivates the search for a political ideal, and each stratum represents a political ideal in its own way. At the heart of this view, as social Sciences prove, are the personal interests of each social group, not the whole society. And the higher the social group takes a position in the social hierarchy, the more influential it…Continue
