»Profit Over People« – so bezeichnet Noam Chomsky den Neoliberalismus, der den Profit über alles Menschliche stellt. Scharfsichtig kritisiert er die Logik des freien Marktes und plädiert für demokratischere Alternativen. »War Against People« ist eine Abrechnung mit den westlichen Staaten– denn sie sind die wahren Schurkenstaaten und nicht die Diktaturen der sogenannten Entwicklungsländer. Die Machtpolitik der USA missachtet die Menschenrechte und missbraucht diese zur Legitimation ihrer Gewaltanwendung.

Since the attacks of September 11th, there has been a sweeping revision of U.S. immigration laws, foreign intelligence gathering operations, and domestic law enforcement procedures. While aimed at countering terrorism and bringing to justice those individuals who are responsible for carrying out acts of terror against the U.S., many of these measures also involve a profound curtailment of our constitutional rights and liberties. Among the most controversial of the new measures is the unprecedented order authorizing the creation of special military tribunals to try non-citizens suspected of terrorism. In Secret Trials and Executions, Olshansky helps us step back for a moment to assess several of the Bush Administration's 2001 policy pronouncements, and examine how the Constitution addresses the cardinal issues of military authority and the requirements of due process and equal protection under the law, and how the courts and Congress have defined the proper roles of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches in our federal government. To provide a framework for this analysis, Olshansky looks at the history of military tribunals, whether the current situation warrants the type of forum proposed by the president, the official positions that our government has taken with regard to the use of military tribunals by other nations, the legal basis for the specific form of military tribunal that is established by the Military Order, what alternatives exist to bring to justice those who may be guilty of such crimes, what constitutional principles are at stake in this decision, and what the decision to use military tribunals will mean in terms of this country's credibility and moral authority in the international arena.

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Globalization, Political Economics, grade: A (1,0), University of Agder (Political Science Fakultet for Okonomi og samfunn), course: Power, politics and the media, 12 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Immer wieder wird behauptet, dass unter dem Einfluss der weltweiten Globalisierung, die Inhalte der Informations- und Kommunikationsmedien nicht langer im Ermessen einzelner Anbieter liegen, sondern sich - synchron zur Verschiebung der Besitzverhaltnisse von einzelnen Unternehmen zu einem globalen Netzwerk - verstricken zu einem eindimensionalen Produkt, in einer Branche, die von wenigen Medienkonglomeraten geleitet und beherrscht wird. Die vorliegende Arbeit uberpruft und diskutiert die Behauptung, dass der zeitgenossische medial gesteuerte Informationsaustausch sich auf eine allgemeine Medienideologie konzentriert. Dabei wird der besondere Fokus auf die wirtschaftlichen Interessen der Medienunternehmen gelegt. Die Frage, die sich in diesem Kontext stellt, lautet, ob Medienkonzentration, sofern sie existiert, auch einen gewissen Nutzen hat oder ob sie schlichtweg eine Bedrohung der modernen Gesellschaft darstellt, indem sie demokratische Grundprinzipien einschrankt und unterdruckt."
