The 12 Angular Points of Social Justice and Peace presents an articulate peace agenda that contains twelve distinct proposals for reducing violence to a minimum while promoting and encouraging pleasure-seeking behaviors both in children and adults.
The proposals are based upon research evidence of the often overlooked bioenergetic roots of violence demonstrating how the historical turndown of the pleasure function through morality/moralism resulted in an inevitable upsurge of violence through the neurodissociative brain.
Newest research on early tactile deprivation conducted by James W. Prescott, Ashley Montagu, Frederick Leboyer, Michel Odent and others namely shows the correlation between mother-infant affectional bonding, tactile pleasure and breastfeeding for the development of the healthy, neurointegrative brain and the building of peaceful/affectionate behaviors. The most important research results are:
—Violence is learnt, not inborn, and not part of natural human behavior;
—Violence is a response of the biosystem to the denial of pleasure/desire;
—Violence is a collective malfunctioning of a society that replaced love by morality.
The audience for this book is the general public, one one hand, professionals in education and psychiatry, on the other, and last not least government counsel responsible for new ideas in social policy making, and interested to be inspired by a new kind of agenda that does away with ‘moralizing’ and with the age-old belief that the human being was an ‘impossible’ one and had to be bettered, reformed, and ‘civilized.’
The Peace Agenda consists of the following 12 Proposals:
01/12 – Crime Prevention
02/12 – The Possible Human
03/12 – Fostering Public Sanity
04/12 – Respecting Natural Intimacy
05/12 – Serving Children
06/12 – More Public Education
07/12 – Free Education
08/12 – Politically Neutral Science
09/12 – Humanism and Realism
10/12 – Promoting Pleasure-Seeking Behaviors
11/12 – Male Affection as a Peace Conductor
12/12 – Fostering Permissive Education
Evidence and Burden of Proof in Foreign Sovereign Immunity Litigation: A Litigation Guide for International Lawyers and Government Counsel is the first specialized and practically useful analysis of the evidence problems and the burden of proof in matters of foreign sovereign immunity litigation, both regarding jurisdictional immunities and immunity from execution.
The monograph is a comparative law analysis that spans six of the seven existing national statutes on foreign sovereign immunity, starting with the United States’ Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, 1976, to the Canadian State Immunity Act, 1982.
The study concludes in demonstrating two distinct rules of the burden of proof, for each kind of immunity; the rules are widely uniform, and were corroborated by case law and scholarly opinion in all of the examined jurisdictions. They can be said to form today rules of international law.
The monograph is of high practical value for litigation lawyers and government counsel struggling with evidence problems regarding foreign sovereign immunity. It can be taken as a reference guide for solving the evidence problems in those trials, and as such is a precious asset in any international law library.
The only titles that in scope, depth and size can be compared with the present study are already quite out of date, and they have, if ever, only randomly dealt with the specific procedural problems of evidence and the burden of proof in international sovereign immunity litigation.
