OK Corral 140 Years Later: Between Frontier Violence and the Emerging Rule of Law

Author: Prof. Dr. Milan Jazbec It was a hundred and forty years ago today that Wyatt Earp took his group to fight the outlaws of the Clanton gang.

Kriegsgräberfürsorge der sogenannten Bürger in Uniform als Indikator für den Mangel an aussen- und sicherheitspolitischem Interesse

Kriegsgräberfürsorge der sogenannten Bürger in Uniform als Indikator für den Mangel an aussen- und sicherheitspolitischem Interesse

Global Review wollte einmal die deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorgesammelaktionen der deutschen Bundeswehr thematisieren, die eine Art Spendenritual geworden ist. Etliche zahlen, weil sie ihre Ruhe wollen, andere zahlen nicht, weil sie generell nichts spenden. Aber über den Sinn der Aktion macht sich scheinbar kaum jemand Gedanken und auch die jungen Bundeswehrsoldaten/innen, die da auf Sammeltour zwangsverpfichtet werden, scheinen gänzlich unvorbereitet und auch reichlich desinteressiert an ihren eigenen Missionen. Dienst nach Vorschrift, zumal in einer schnicken Uniform. Meine jüngstes Erlebnis. Zwei Soldaten und…

Communist Party of China: State capitalist campaign for „common prosperity“

Communist Party of China: State capitalist campaign for „common prosperity“

In assessing the character of the CCP, whether it is a Confucian party or a Marxist-Leninist party, one should take into account Professor Van Ess‘ programmatic essay „How Confucian is China?“ In which he denies this, even though he thinks that the CCP was a Leninist party. Against this is the fact that the CPC no longer wants an international proletarian world revolution like Lenin, rejects class struggle, its membership structure would no longer be that of a workers‘ party…

From skinhead to tie fascist – an obituary

From skinhead to tie fascist – an obituary

A typical cliché for a Nazi in the 90s was still the beer-drinking skinhead, who was screaming  Germany conquers the world, with combat boots and baseball bats. The Bone skins, different from the Red Skins. The skinhead movement originally came from the de-industrialized industrial areas of Great Britain, almost at the same time as the punk movement and the Sex Pistols. In the beginning, the skins were a lifestyle movement that gave their life’s sadness a celebrating framework and combative…

Vom Skin zum Krawattenfaschist- ein Nachruf

Typisches Klischee für einen Nazi war noch in den 90er Jahren der biertrinkende, Deutschland über alles gröhlende  Skinhead mit Bomberjacke, Springerstiefeln und Baseballschläger. Boneskins als rechtsradikale Ausfromung der Skinheadbewegung im Gegensatz zu den normalen Skins oder den politisch linken Red Skins. Die Skinheadbewegung kam ursprünglich aus den deindustrialiserten Industriegebieten Großbritanniens, fast zeitgliech mit der Punkbewegung und den Sex Pistols. Anfangs waren die Skins eine Lifestylebewegung, die ihrer Lebenstristesse einen feiernden Rahmen und kämpferischen Impetus einer vernachlässigten working class jugend gaben…
