    by Ronesa Aveela
    Seductive. Beautiful. Dangerous! Or are they innocent and looking for love? Discover the allure of Slavic mermaids - the Rusalki. If Henry Wadsworth Longfellow had grown up in Eastern Europe, his soul would have longed for the secrets of the rivers, lakes, and marshes, rather than the sea. And the pale, beautiful maidens residing there would have been the ones who sent “a thrilling pulse” through him, instead of the heart of the great ocean. And who are these lovely maidens? … The Rus... more

  • Class Struggles

    by Jordan Weisinger
    Descriptive statistics can be used to create new varieties of democratic representation when econometric terms are applied to institutions and electorates.

The highest standard of democratic entitlements applies, with "one person, one vote" and proportional representation applying to the income-based... more
  • Imperial Democracy

    by Jordan Weisinger

Higher per capita income is associated with longer periods of sustainable democracy. When the wealthier jurisdictions earn proportionally more representation than poorer more rural jurisdictions, the modified per capita income (interaction effect of # reps * per capita income) increases along with ... more

  • Killing History: The False Left-Right Political Spectrum and the Battle Between the 'Free Left' and the 'Statist Left'

    by L.K. Samuels
    Almost everything about the political spectrum is dead wrong. If the two polar opposites are Communism versus Fascism, what is in the middle? If the middle is halfway between Communism and Fascism, then everyone not on the extreme ends must be half-communist and half-fascist? Nobody believes that, but the old political spectrum prescribes that exact political scenario. So what happened? In an effort to rewrite history, the political dichotomy has been deliberately broken, falsified, sabotaged, a... more
