    BBC manifesto vows to end ratings chase By Tom Leonard, Media Editor (Filed: 30/06/2004) The BBC set out a nine-point manifesto for its future yesterday, including pledges to cut out "derivative and cynical" programmes, restore "serious" current affairs on television and move almost half its staff out of London. The proposals, which form the core of the corporation's submission in the review of its Royal Charter, also contained sweeping reforms of the corporation's governors to strengthen their independence following criticism in the Hutton report. The 10-year manifesto, "Building Public Value", was outlined by Michael Grade, the BBC chairman. He said...

This manifesto, The Hyde Park Declaration, is the result of their work. The Hyde Park Declaration has a historic antecedent. At their 1990 annual meeting,...

    I recently had the honor of being the target of criticism by one of the world's most chic, contemporary philosophers. His name is Slavoj Zizek and he is a senior researcher at the Institute for Social Studies in Ljubljana, the small, elegant, and otherwise rather boring capital of Slovenia. (This judgment on my part is based on several visits in recent years.) He wrote jeeringly, in an article titled "Iraq's False Promises," in the January/February 2004 issue of Foreign Policy, that the U.S. under George W. Bush "has moved from 'containing' the enemy [i.e. Communism] to promoting a 'capitalist revolution,'...

    Each quote is either from Al Gore's Book Earth in the Balance or from the Unabomber's Manifesto. Can you tell the difference? Another tip to Neal Boortz. I ran across this link on his website.
  • Lenin manifesto predicted America's fall

    Lenin manifesto predicted America's fall Here's what Lenin said Communism would do for the Western world in a speech delivered in Moscow in 1917, just before World War I: "We will win the Western world for Communism without shedding a drop of a single Russian soldier's blood. How? We will bankrupt the Western world. "We will create fear, suspicion. We will work inside by creating racial hatreds, religious antagonisms. "We will pit father against son, wife against husband; we will inaugurate campaigns to hate Jews and to hate Catholics, and to hate Negroes. "We will inspire strikes and riots. We...

    Manifesto promises puzzle Japanese By Colin Joyce in Tokyo (Filed: 30/10/2003) The adoption of a British-style manifesto by Japan's opposition Democratic Party promised yesterday to revolutionise political life as campaigning for next month's general election began. The Democratic Party became the first in Japan to publish a manifesto after one of its senior figures visited Labour headquarters in London during a trip to Britain to study its political system. By making written policy pledges in far more detail than before, the Democrats hope to shake up Japan's stodgy electoral system and erode the majority held by Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi's...

    Until Herschel's discovery of Uranus in 1781, it was considered a matter of certainty that there were six planets. But the fact that everyone knew this to be true did not make it so. In like manner, college students and other insufferable connoisseurs of all human wisdom "know" that the historical Nazi Party epitomizes the extreme right-wing. It is informative to first note an academic definition of communism: "A social, political and economic system characterized by the revolutionary struggle to create a society which has an absence of classes, and the common ownership of the means of production and subsistence...

    You would have never heard of Karl Marx had it not been for V.I. Lenin. Marx was neither terribly successful nor terribly important in his own right, and had it not been for a revolution carried out three decades after his death, he would be a footnote at best. But on this May Day, the high holy day of Communism and Socialism, it is important that we remember. As a student, both in England and America, I often heard the refrain -- even from conservatives -- that "communism wouldn't have been so bad if it had been carried out...

    UTRECHT (ANP) - All kids must be required to learn Turkish or Moroccan, next to Dutch and English, at the primary-school. This was recorded in a manifesto 'Samen naar de talenschool' (together to the languageschool), that was signed bij dozens of education- and language-experts. Languageschools are required to teach Turkish and Moroccan within the regular hours. The implementation must be checked by the schools inspectorate. The manifesto was send Tuesday to minister Van der Hoeven of Education. The Balkende-led government is planning the opposite: to disband the immigrants language-lseeons for children of immigrants. The people who signed the manifesto, amongst...

Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war. 2. U.S. willingness to...

    {This is a long article, so I will summarise the authors main points. (1) Expand the spirit of Porto Alegre. ( clarity, miltancy, long term planning) (2) Use defensive electoral tactics. (3) Push democratization unceasingly. The most popular demand on the states everywhere is "more"-more education, more health, more guaranteed lifetime income. (4) Make the liberal center fulfil its theoretical preferences. (5) Make anti-racism the defining measure of democracy. (6) Move towards decommodification. (7) Remember always that we are living in the era of transition from our existing world-system to something different. See the full article below:} ___________________ AN EXCHANGEA...
