This book identifies where modern Jeremiahs place the sources of national decline and their purposed solutions and its analysis also reveals the central problem faced by this form of writing: the need to balance condemnation of certain practices within the democratic polity with calls for repentance. For these writers and political actors, the tensions created by these demands prove impossible to resolve, as the modern jeremiad further divides an already divided nation.

The Industrial Revolution, powered by oil and other fossil fuels, is spiraling into a dangerous endgame. The price of gas and food are climbing, unemployment remains high, the housing market has tanked, consumer and government debt is soaring, and the recovery is slowing. Facing the prospect of a second collapse of the global economy, humanity is desperate for a sustainable economic game plan to take us into the future. Here, Jeremy Rifkin explores how Internet technology and renewable energy are merging to create a powerful "Third Industrial Revolution." He asks us to imagine hundreds of millions of people producing their own green energy in their homes, offices, and factories, and sharing it with each other in an "energy internet," just like we now create and share information online. Rifkin describes how the five-pillars of the Third Industrial Revolution will create thousands of businesses, millions of jobs, and usher in a fundamental reordering of human relationships, from hierarchical to lateral power, that will impact the way we conduct commerce, govern society, educate our children, and engage in civic life. Rifkin's vision is already gaining traction in the international community. The European Union Parliament has issued a formal declaration calling for its implementation, and other nations in Asia, Africa, and the Americas, are quickly preparing their own initiatives for transitioning into the new economic paradigm. The Third Industrial Revolution is an insider's account of the next great economic era, including a look into the personalities and players — heads of state, global CEOs, social entrepreneurs, and NGOs — who are pioneering its implementation around the world.

Pre-University Paper from the year 2005 in the subject English - Applied Geography, grade: 2-/10P., , language: English, abstract: When on November 2nd in the year 2004 the world’s single left super-power’s citizens went to choose between incumbent George W. Bush and his challenger John F. Kerry to become the nation’s next president, the whole planet glanced excitedly at their TV in order to be informed as soon as possible about whom of the two would be the one to lead the United States of America in the forthcoming four years. Too much had been happening between 2000 and 2004, during the first period of the Bush administration in power. Events like the terror attacks on September 11th 2001, the resultant Afghanistan war and so-called war on terror and of course – most importantly – the invasion of Iraq which began in march 2003 and was suspected not to be waged due to the existence of Saddam’s mysterious “weapons of mass destruction”, but much more likely because of the country’s extensive oil fields, had been changing the world’s political consciousness and especially the view towards a western civilization that did not seem to stand for peace-keeping or democracy any more, as it was seen almost a whole century ago, but as a Goliath that was trying to raise a hegemony just to be able to fulfill his wishes no matter which non-allied country or people with a different culture suffered from this. Yet it was not only abroad that vast forms of protest began to form themselves, but also in the U.S. One of this movement’s most polarizing phenomenons is meanwhile world-widely known and had not least co-motivated these developments in Europe and particularly in Germany: leftist writer, director and polemic Michael Moore. As a vehement critic of his government’s policy, this man specially published a book and a film in the wider pre-election phase only with the goal of removing Bush from his presidency. This agitator, these two outputs and how his opponents try to prevent him from spreading his message shall be dealt with on the following pages.

In 1973, aged twenty-two, Timothy O'Grady left America. For the next thirty years he lived in and wrote about Europe. As he did, the American counter-culture crashed, Ronald Reagan came and went, wars were declared and the country was attacked by air. Much of the world began to look at America in a new way, wondering what had happened to it and where it was going. Among them was Timothy O'Grady, and he decided to go back and investigate. He went out onto the American road, travelling over fifteen thousand miles through thirty-five states. He met academics, the homeless, war veterans, political activists, New Orleans rappers, billionaires, novelists and a Ku Klux Klansman. In every bar he stopped in, it seemed, there was a story of American life to be heard.

This book sensitizes the reader to the fact that there is substantial disagreement within the academic community, and among policymakers and the general public, over what behaviors, conditions (e.g., physical attributes), and people should be designated as deviant or criminal. Normative conceptions, the societal reaction/labeling approach, and the critical approach are offered as frameworks within which to study these definitions. A comprehensive explanation of theory and social policy on deviance is constructed.
