Commentary :: Human Rights
Chapter One: Provocative Thoughts While Touring a Park: from When God Became the Terrorist
14 Apr 2010
The major thesis of this book is that authoritarianism, as a “human” personality trait, throughout history, has influenced both the “creation” and the “interpretation”, of religious and political dogma, and that this was even more so before there was a constituted division between Church and State.

Chapter Two: Abrahamic Models Of Governance from When God Became the Terrorist
14 Apr 2010
Authoritarianism, politically speaking, is a style of control that demands obedience and usually gets it. Individuals have little choice regarding compliance. It hardly needs mentioning that this style of command and control is different from legalized authority written as legislation and negotiated between governors, representatives and citizens.

Chapter Three: Religious Conditioning: from When God Became the Terrorist
14 Apr 2010
Most Americans have not been introduced to a general theory that claims religions (some more than others) condition people, psychologically, to be more compliant towards certain kinds of governance—in which case, religions, by default, operate as "models" of government?

Chapter Four: Religion As Politics from When God Became the Terrorist
14 Apr 2010
Nicolo Machiavelli, in his book The Prince, explained political terrorism without any need to refer to a religion or a God. Nevertheless, he argued for fear or terrorist tactics as necessary at times. His psychology of politics for prince and alike is now euphemistically called “realism” or “realpolitik” by the Kissingers of the world. Machiavelli, after all these years, still is the “Prince of Terror”, and it goes without saying, his book has had enormous influence since it was published back in the early 16th century.

Chapter Five: Man’s Influence On Religion: from When God Became the Terrorist
14 Apr 2010
Religions are not all the same. Each one has it’s own individuality and psyche-ology (or allows for multiple interpretations). Also many leading figures, even within one religion’s lore, have their own individuality that can cause ideological and values clash within.

Chapter Six: The Legality of Justice Versus Blind Faith from When god Became the Terrorist
14 Apr 2010
Are political guarantees just so man words on paper to be used for political speeches? Who is ultimately responsible for enforcing principles of law in a republic? Given the reality that justice is very much a human concept, what can people presume, if anything, about such abstract words as “justice” and “fairness: before the law? What informs these legal meanings that people too often take for granted? Dedicated to the prisoners at Guantanamo who are or were innocent and to their lawyers who are attempting to bring justice to bear.

Venezuela: the myth of "Eco-socialism of the XXI Century"
13 Apr 2010
* This text, which appeared in El Libertario # 58, March-April 2010, critically examines what has been meaning the government of Hugo Chavez from an environmental point of view, highlighting the clear separation between the rhetoric speeches that are emitted from power and the specific facts being promoted and implemented.
