It's being made out that the whole point of the war was to topple the Taliban regime and liberate Afghan women from their burqas, we are being asked to believe that the U.S. marines are actually on a feminist mission.Arundhati Roy Hegemony Sayings By Arundhati Roy: It's being made out that the whole point of the war was to topple the
I believe - though I may be wrong, because I'm no expert - that this war is about what most wars are about: hegemony, money, power and oil.Dustin Hoffman Hegemony Sayings By Dustin Hoffman: I believe - though I may be wrong, because I'm no expert - that this
The call for political freedom took place long ago. The call for freedom of speech is also a thing of the past. Freedom is not a word to be used exclusively for phenomena such as this which are so easily given outward manifestation. I believe that we young men of the new age have encountered the moment in time when we must call for that great freedom, the freedom of the mind.Soseki Natsume Hegemony Sayings By Soseki Natsume: The call for political freedom took place long ago. The call for freedom of speech
The nation no longer stands for the enlightenment tradition, but rather for military-political hegemony and the total commodification of life.Morris Berman Hegemony Sayings By Morris Berman: The nation no longer stands for the enlightenment tradition, but rather for military-political hegemony and

As the 19th century progressed, Europe's innovations, norms and categories came to achieve a truly universal hegemony.Pankaj Mishra Hegemony Sayings By Pankaj Mishra: As the 19th century progressed, Europe's innovations, norms and categories came to achieve a truly
Why is Netanyahu pushing war? Among several reasons, demonizing Iran reduces pressure on Israel to negotiate seriously with the Palestinians. Many Israelis prefer building Jewish settlements on Palestinians' land instead. Moreover, Israel's rulers oppose any development-such as an Iranian-U.S. detente-that could diminish Israel's U.S.-financed hegemony in the region. War with Iran would be a catastrophe all around. Netanyahu and his hawkish American allies-the same people who gave us the disastrous Iraq war and ISIS-must be repudiated.Sheldon Richman Hegemony Sayings By Sheldon Richman: Why is Netanyahu pushing war? Among several reasons, demonizing Iran reduces pressure on Israel to
This country has had 200 years of hegemony over the rest of the world, and it feels like our politicians, they just want to give that back.Donald Trump Jr. Hegemony Sayings By Donald Trump Jr.: This country has had 200 years of hegemony over the rest of the world, and
Anti-Islamist Muslims - who wish to live modern lives, unencumbered by burqas, fatwas and violent visions of jihad - are on the defensive and atomized. However eloquent, their individual voices cannot compete with the roar of militant Islam's determination, money (much of it from overseas) and violence. As a result, militant Islam, with its West-phobia and goal of world hegemony, dominates Islam in the West and appears to many to be the only kind of Islam.Daniel Pipes Hegemony Sayings By Daniel Pipes: Anti-Islamist Muslims - who wish to live modern lives, unencumbered by burqas, fatwas and violent
Why should we care about the coup? First, because we depend on Yemen's government to support our drone war against another local menace, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). It's not clear if we can even maintain our embassy in Yemen, let alone conduct operations against AQAP. And second, because growing Iranian hegemony is a mortal threat to our allies and interests in the entire Middle East.Charles Krauthammer Hegemony Sayings By Charles Krauthammer: Why should we care about the coup? First, because we depend on Yemen's government to
In the end, peace can be achieved only by hegemony or by balance of power.Henry Kissinger Hegemony Sayings By Henry Kissinger: In the end, peace can be achieved only by hegemony or by balance of power.
There are insistent calls for autonomy, appeals for a new resource ethic based on the tradition of the commons, demands for the reinstatement of cultural primacy over corporate hegemony, and a rising demand for radical transparency in politics and corporate decision making. It has been said that environmentalism failed as a movement, or worse yet, died. It is the other way around. Everyone on earth will be an environmentalist in the not too distant future, driven there by necessity and experience.Paul Hawken Hegemony Sayings By Paul Hawken: There are insistent calls for autonomy, appeals for a new resource ethic based on the
The kind of emancipation that is being put forward today in technologically based cultures is crying out for women at last to become men. But this is not equality of rights: it is the ultimate oppression of women by a civilization in which the hegemony of technology implies the subjugation of nature and the subjugation of women
the two are closely inter-related.
Pope Benedict XVI Hegemony Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: The kind of emancipation that is being put forward today in technologically based cultures is
Because of the hegemony of fundamentalist religion in the United States, this country has been among the most resistant to the fact of human evolution.Jerry A. Coyne Hegemony Sayings By Jerry A. Coyne: Because of the hegemony of fundamentalist religion in the United States, this country has been
White male hegemony may turn out to be finite, but white male creepiness is eternal.Adam Kotsko Hegemony Sayings By Adam Kotsko: White male hegemony may turn out to be finite, but white male creepiness is eternal.
Since the security benefits of hegemony are enormous" in an anarchic system in which there is no world hegemon, "powerful states will invariably be tempted to emulate the United States and try to dominate their region of the world."15Robert D. Kaplan Hegemony Sayings By Robert D. Kaplan: Since the security benefits of hegemony are enormous" in an anarchic system in which there
The more a human being in his worldview approaches the goal, the hegemony of love in a moral universe, the more has he become slipshod in the light of intellectual honesty.Peter Wessel Zapffe Hegemony Sayings By Peter Wessel Zapffe: The more a human being in his worldview approaches the goal, the hegemony of love
Hegemony is as old as mankind.Zbigniew Brzezinski Hegemony Sayings By Zbigniew Brzezinski: Hegemony is as old as mankind.
They taught the women that the home is a shame and in doing so, they successfully decomposed nations. Instead of it being the greatest honour to build a family, it became a laughingstock. And in this becoming, they successfully deconstructed nations. They taught the men that loyalty is merely an option and in doing so, they successfully destroyed nations. Instead of it being the greatest pride to love one woman, it became a joke, a funny side comment. And in this becoming, they successfully poisoned nations. Your home is your atom, your cell, your genome. Your love is your honour, your word, your truth. You wonder why we live in deconstructed nations, you ask one another why you live on torn fibres, cracked ground, and yet you continue to listen to what they tell you. You have put shame where there should be a throne, you have placed a joke where there should be a crown. You have successfully destroyed your nations.C. JoyBell C. Hegemony Sayings By C. JoyBell C.: They taught the women that the home is a shame and in doing so, they
Taking part in the Western mission to civilize the East is highly spiritually rewarding. And what is political destabilization and social unrest but a sweet revenge for China's disregard for Western hegemony.Thorsten J. Pattberg Hegemony Sayings By Thorsten J. Pattberg: Taking part in the Western mission to civilize the East is highly spiritually rewarding. And
Illiberal left ideology has its greatest strength on campuses because campuses are one of the few places in American life where a certain kind of far-left politics can actually impose hegemony on other ideas and really control the discourse in a way it can't in most places in American life where even moderate liberals are more of a minority.Jonathan Chait Hegemony Sayings By Jonathan Chait: Illiberal left ideology has its greatest strength on campuses because campuses are one of the
Balint pondered the programme outlined by Slawata: centralization, rule by an Imperial Council, the ancient kingdom of Hungary reduced to an Austrian province, and national boundaries to be re-arranged statistically according to the ethnic origin of the inhabitants! Why all this? To what purpose? Slawata had given him the answer: Imperial expansion in the Balkans so that feudal kingdoms for the Habsburgs reached the Sea of Marmora; and it was all to be achieved with the blood of Hungarian soldiers and paid for by Hungarian tax-money! So it was merely to help Vienna spread Austrian hegemony over the nations of the Balkans that Tisza was to be helped to build up the Hungarian national armed forces.Miklos Banffy Hegemony Sayings By Miklos Banffy: Balint pondered the programme outlined by Slawata: centralization, rule by an Imperial Council, the ancient
North American cinema is the only true weapon of mass destruction. It has achieved to convince the audience not only that it's the best possible cinema, but that it is the only.Arturo Ripstein Hegemony Sayings By Arturo Ripstein: North American cinema is the only true weapon of mass destruction. It has achieved to
The history of the bagel suggests that Americans' shifting, blended, multi-ethnic eating habits are signs neither of postmodern decadence, ethnic fragmentation, nor corporate hegemony. If we do not understand how a bagel could sometimes be Jewish, sometimes be "New York," and sometimes be American, or why it is that Pakistanis now sell bagels to both Anglos and Tejanos in Houston, it is in part because we have too hastily assumed that our tendency to cross cultural boundaries in order to eat ethnic foods is a recent development - and a culinary symptom of all that has gone wrong with contemporary culture.

It is not. The bagel tells a different kind of American tale. It high- lights ways that the production, exchange, marketing, and consumption of food have generated new identities - for foods and eaters alike.
Donna Gabaccia Hegemony Sayings By Donna Gabaccia: The history of the bagel suggests that Americans' shifting, blended, multi-ethnic eating habits are signs
of oppressive state power. Gramsci's theory of hegemony as a form of cultural pedagogy is also invaluable as an element of critical educational thought. By emphasizing the pedagogical force of culture, Gramsci expands the sphere of the political by pointing to those diverse spaces and spheres in which cultural practices are deployed, lived, and mobilized in the service of knowledge, power and authority. For Gramsci, learning and politics were inextricably related and took place not merely in schools but in a vast array of public sites.Henry A. Giroux Hegemony Sayings By Henry A. Giroux: of oppressive state power. Gramsci's theory of hegemony as a form of cultural pedagogy is
The crisis creates situations which are dangerous in the short run, since the various strata of the population are not all capable of orienting themselves equally swiftly, or of reorganizing with the same rhythm. The traditional ruling class, which has numerous trained cadres, changes men and programmes and, with greater speed than is achieved by the subordinate classes, reabsorbs the control that was slipping from its grasp. Perhaps it may make sacrifices, and expose itself to an uncertain future by demagogic promises; but it retains power, reinforces it for the time being, and uses it to crush its adversary and disperse his leading cadres, who cannot be be very numerous or highly trained.Antonio Gramsci Hegemony Sayings By Antonio Gramsci: The crisis creates situations which are dangerous in the short run, since the various strata
Privileged people can feel the way these identities threaten their privileged status and the benefits that they receive as a result. For this reason also, trying to reassure hegemony that these identities are not a threat to it (for the purpose of being "accepted" into society) is moot. Hegemony is right to feel threatened, because there's no way one could change social order without deconstructing power.Shiri Eisner Hegemony Sayings By Shiri Eisner: Privileged people can feel the way these identities threaten their privileged status and the benefits
Show me one dictatorship in the world that has not been supported by the United States government or some European governments. It almost doesn't exist. I think a dictatorship and hegemony are part of the same phenomenon.Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Hegemony Sayings By Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: Show me one dictatorship in the world that has not been supported by the United
The Iranian regime suppresses its own people as well as others in the region. It prevents peace by sponsoring terror globally. With the ultimate weapon that it is deceptively developing, the regime aims to gain hegemony over the entire Middle East and hold the world's economy hostage.Shimon Peres Hegemony Sayings By Shimon Peres: The Iranian regime suppresses its own people as well as others in the region. It
She had joined Amnesty International and Greenpeace and the Green Party. She said patriarchy and hegemony and neo-liberalism, several times a day. She put streaks of blue in her hair and enjoyed baiting her teachers by wearing mascara: but Miss, you're wearing makeup. But Sir, aren't you just inducting us into a world more interested in policing women's sexuality than giving us knowledge?Sarah Moss Hegemony Sayings By Sarah Moss: She had joined Amnesty International and Greenpeace and the Green Party. She said patriarchy and
Victors do not investigate their own crimes, so that little is known about them ...Noam Chomsky Hegemony Sayings By Noam Chomsky: Victors do not investigate their own crimes, so that little is known about them ...
I won't be one of the hundreds telling you that being alive flows like a story you write consciously, deliberately, full of linear narrative, foreshadowing, repetition, motifs. The emotional beats come down where they should, last as long as they should, end where they should, and that should come from somewhere real and natural, not from the tyranny of the theatre, the utter hegemony of fiction.Catherynne M Valente Hegemony Sayings By Catherynne M Valente: I won't be one of the hundreds telling you that being alive flows like a
I think it's perfectly possible for us to stay outside of power politics, or parliamentary politics, and speak about things like the American hegemony in the region or speak about the unjust war on terror that's been brought to our borders.Fatima Bhutto Hegemony Sayings By Fatima Bhutto: I think it's perfectly possible for us to stay outside of power politics, or parliamentary
To his lasting credit, President Reagan never wavered. He recognized the strategic importance of staying the course, both in terms of denying Moscow the military hegemony it sought in Western Europe and of restoring the will, cohesiveness, and security of the NATO alliance, so badly frayed during the turbulent 1970s.Frank Gaffney Hegemony Sayings By Frank Gaffney: To his lasting credit, President Reagan never wavered. He recognized the strategic importance of staying
Illness reduces man to his basic state: a cloaca in which the chemical processes continue. The meaningless hegemony of the involuntary.Paul Bowles Hegemony Sayings By Paul Bowles: Illness reduces man to his basic state: a cloaca in which the chemical processes continue.
Decadence, decadence, he said to himself. They've lost everything and gained nothing. The French had merely daubed on the finishing touches at the end of a process which had begun five hundred years ago, at least. Their intuitive moral desires coincided with the ideals embodied in the formulas of their religion, yet they could live in accordance neither with those deepest impulses nor with the precepts of the religion, because society came in between with all the pressure of its tradition. No one could afford to be honest or generous or merciful because every one of them distrusted all the others; often they had more confidence in a Christian they were meeting for the first time than in a Moslem they had known for years.Paul Bowles Hegemony Sayings By Paul Bowles: Decadence, decadence, he said to himself. They've lost everything and gained nothing. The French had
Parody by itself is not subversive, and there must be a way to understand what makes certain kinds of parodic repetitions effectively disruptive, truly troubling, and which repetitions become domesticated and recirculated as instruments of cultural hegemonyJudith Butler Hegemony Sayings By Judith Butler: Parody by itself is not subversive, and there must be a way to understand what
I have been impressed by the realization that a few men have virtually 'decided' what experiences count and even exist in the world. The language of Western science
the reigning construct of male hegemony
precludes the ability to express the experiential realities it talks about. Virtually all the actual experiences of this world, expressed through the manifest and mysterious characteristics of all the different beings, are unrepresented in the stainless steel edicts of experts. Where is the voice of the voiceless in the scientific literature, including the literature of environmental ethics?
Karen Davis Hegemony Sayings By Karen Davis: I have been impressed by the realization that a few men have virtually 'decided' what
Creating consent (hegemony) is never a simple act. It is rather the result of the social structures and the cultural patterns that dictates for each group its behavior and for each institutions its practices.Amine Zidouh Hegemony Sayings By Amine Zidouh: Creating consent (hegemony) is never a simple act. It is rather the result of the
Every time we killed a thousand Bugs at a cost of one M.I. it was a net victory for the Bugs. We were learning, expensively, just how efficient a total communism can be when used by a people actually adapted to it by evolution; the Bug commisars didn't care any more about expending soldiers than we cared about expending ammo. Perhaps we could have figured this out about the Bugs by noting the grief the Chinese Hegemony gave the Russo-Anglo-American Alliance; however the trouble with 'lessons from history' is that we usually read them best after falling flat on our chins.Robert A. Heinlein Hegemony Sayings By Robert A. Heinlein: Every time we killed a thousand Bugs at a cost of one M.I. it was
We've been stuck in one species since our Cro-Magnon ancestors helped to wipe out the smarter Neanderthals," she said. "Now it's our chance to diversify rapidly, and institutions like the Hegemony, the Pax, and the Core are stopping it.Dan Simmons Hegemony Sayings By Dan Simmons: We've been stuck in one species since our Cro-Magnon ancestors helped to wipe out the
One of the effects of indoctrination, of passing into the anglo-centrism of British West Indian culture, is that you believe absolutely in the hegemony of the King's English and in the proper forms of expression. Or else your writing is not literature; it is folklore, or worse. And folklore can never be art. Read some poetry by West Indian writers
some, not all
and you will see what I mean. The reader has to dissect anglican stanza after anglican stanza for Caribbean truth, and may never find it. The anglican ideal
Milton, Wordsworth, Keats
was held before us with an assurance that we were unable, and would never be able, to achieve such excellence. We crouched outside the cave.
Michelle Cliff Hegemony Sayings By Michelle Cliff: One of the effects of indoctrination, of passing into the anglo-centrism of British West Indian
Human beings are many-layered creatures, and do not succumb to the hegemony of others as easily as historians and politicians sometimes imply. Those Welsh, Scottish and Anglo-Irish individuals who became part of the British Establishment in this period did not in the main sell out in the sense of becoming Anglicised look-alikes. Instead, they became British in a new and intensely profitable fashion, while remaining in their own minds and behavior Welsh, or Scottish, or Irish aswell.Linda Colley Hegemony Sayings By Linda Colley: Human beings are many-layered creatures, and do not succumb to the hegemony of others as
In Russia's case he identifies three strands: the Atlanticists, favouring alignment with the United States and the West (the bandwagoners); the imperialists, who favour the reassertion of Russia's power in opposition to the West (the balancers); and the neo-Slavophiles, sharing the sentiments of the imperialists but who stress the development of the country's Slavic identity.8 According to Zimmerman, the fundamental divide is indeed between Westernisers and Slavophiles, in a reprise of nineteenth-century debates, with the Slavophiles intent on counterbalancing American hegemony and finding an autonomous developmental path.9Richard Sakwa Hegemony Sayings By Richard Sakwa: In Russia's case he identifies three strands: the Atlanticists, favouring alignment with the United States
World dictatorship can be established only when the victory of socialism has been achieved in certain countries or groups of countries ... [and] when these federation of republics have finally grown into a world union of Soviet Socialist Republics uniting the whole of mankind under the hegemony of the international proletariat organized as a state.Joseph Stalin Hegemony Sayings By Joseph Stalin: World dictatorship can be established only when the victory of socialism has been achieved in
The most dangerous ideas are not those that challenge the status quo. The most dangerous ideas are those so embedded in the status quo, so wrapped in a cloud of inevitability, that we forget they are ideas at all.Jacob M. Appel Hegemony Sayings By Jacob M. Appel: The most dangerous ideas are not those that challenge the status quo. The most dangerous
The United States has weakened itself with Iraq; Iranians feel victorious - they feel capable of filling the void. I think from the very outset the nuclear issue has been secondary to the more strategic outlook, in which the United States has, since 1991, pursued a policy that it cannot permit any country in the region to become too powerful and challenge American hegemony.Trita Parsi Hegemony Sayings By Trita Parsi: The United States has weakened itself with Iraq; Iranians feel victorious - they feel capable
By the end of World War II, we were the most powerful and least damaged of the great nations. We also had most of the money. America's hegemony lasted exactly five years.Gore Vidal Hegemony Sayings By Gore Vidal: By the end of World War II, we were the most powerful and least damaged
The fantastic is in complicity with the realist model, in the claims that realism makes to represent the true face of reality. It points to the gaps and inadequacies of realism, but does not question the legitimacy of its claims to represent reality. The concept of suspension of disbelief', that beloved criterion of positivist criticism supposedly serving to establish the legitimacy of the fantastic, confirms this hegemony.Michael Richardson Hegemony Sayings By Michael Richardson: The fantastic is in complicity with the realist model, in the claims that realism makes
'Prison Notebooks' gives me a basic understanding of how power can influence people through cultural products and intellectual groups, so they will voluntarily support the hegemony.Okky Madasari Hegemony Sayings By Okky Madasari: 'Prison Notebooks' gives me a basic understanding of how power can influence people through cultural
The truth is that the free movement of goods, people, and money that developed under British hegemony between 1870 and 1913 - the first episode of globalization - was made possible, in large part, by military might rather than market forces.Ha-Joon Chang Hegemony Sayings By Ha-Joon Chang: The truth is that the free movement of goods, people, and money that developed under
Recover the source of all strength in yourself, and all else will be added to you ... political freedom, the mastery of human thought, the hegemony of the world.Sri Aurobindo Hegemony Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: Recover the source of all strength in yourself, and all else will be added to
The hegemony of finance and the banks has produced the indebted. Control over information and communication networks has created the mediatized. The security regime and the generalized state of exception have constructed a figure prey to fear and yearning for protection - the securitized. And the corruption of democracy has forged a strange, depoliticized figure, the represented. These subjective figures constitute the social terrain on which - and against which - movements of resistance and rebellion must act.Michael Hardt Hegemony Sayings By Michael Hardt: The hegemony of finance and the banks has produced the indebted. Control over information and
The only way, they argued, to prevent a revolution was to rule Russia with an iron hand. This meant defending the autocratic principle, the unchecked powers of the police, the hegemony of the nobility, and the moral domination of the Church, against the liberal and secular challenges of the urban-industrialize order.Orlando Figes Hegemony Sayings By Orlando Figes: The only way, they argued, to prevent a revolution was to rule Russia with an
The ethical regime [of the Jews] was quite definitely Ptolemaic, revolving around the small group of Jews, not the larger Gentile group and, accordingly, they learned to remain unimpressed by Gentile temporal power. Being unimpressed did not mean being unafraid material power might beat or starve one to death; it did mean refusing to surrender moral hegemony to the majority merely because it had power.David Riesman Hegemony Sayings By David Riesman: The ethical regime [of the Jews] was quite definitely Ptolemaic, revolving around the small group
It's not a matter of emancipating truth from every system of power (which would be a chimera, for truth is already power) but of detaching the power of truth from the forms of hegemony, social, economic and cultural, within which it operates at the present timeMichel Foucault Hegemony Sayings By Michel Foucault: It's not a matter of emancipating truth from every system of power (which would be
Mature love is not a surrender of the self but a surrender to the self. The ego surrenders its hegemony of the personality to the heart, but in this surrender it is not annihilated. Rather it is strengthened because its roots in the body are nourished by the joy that the body feels.Alexander Lowen Hegemony Sayings By Alexander Lowen: Mature love is not a surrender of the self but a surrender to the self.
The move from a structuralist account in which capital is understood to structure social relations in relatively homologous ways to a view of hegemony in which power relations are subject to repetition, convergence, and rearticulation brought the question of temporality into the thinking of structure, and marked a shift from a form of Althusserian theory that takes structural totalities as theoretical objects to one in which the insights into the contingent possibility of structure inaugurate a renewed conception of hegemony as bound up with the contingent sites and strategies of the rearticulation of power.Judith Butler Hegemony Sayings By Judith Butler: The move from a structuralist account in which capital is understood to structure social relations
It is often believed that, as long as we're the economic powerhouse of the world and have a huge military advantage, we can control the world by "owning" international organizations like the United Nations, NATO, the IMF, and the World Bank. These international organizations may also be used as a means to get around congressional oversight and restrictions that Congress and the people might prefer. To a degree, that control has been achieved. But now that the US is the largest debtor nation in the world and in all history, the days of military and economic supremacy are numbered, as are the days of dollar hegemony.Ron Paul Hegemony Sayings By Ron Paul: It is often believed that, as long as we're the economic powerhouse of the world
People in the Middle East may consider the U.S. an evil hegemony that has tainted their culture, but when I look at the growth of racial and ethnic tolerance and understanding in my generation in the U.S., and see those sentiments make it around the world, it makes me feel proud.Aloe Blacc Hegemony Sayings By Aloe Blacc: People in the Middle East may consider the U.S. an evil hegemony that has tainted
My instincts are always against people who want to fasten some sort of hegemony onto things.Clifford Geertz Hegemony Sayings By Clifford Geertz: My instincts are always against people who want to fasten some sort of hegemony onto
The United States came out of the 1990s, if anything, in an even greater position of hegemony and preeminence than it was at the beginning of the 1990s.John Lewis Gaddis Hegemony Sayings By John Lewis Gaddis: The United States came out of the 1990s, if anything, in an even greater position
It can be said, truly said, that the Iraqi resistance is not just defending Iraq. They are defending all the Arabs and they are defending all the people of the world against American hegemony ... It's not the Muslims who are sick. It's Bush and Blair and Berlusconi who are sick. It's not the Muslims who need to be cured. It's the imperialist countries that need to be cured.George Galloway Hegemony Sayings By George Galloway: It can be said, truly said, that the Iraqi resistance is not just defending Iraq.
the modern rejection of imitation does not mean that human beings escape mimesis in any way; in fact, this "rejection" is a product of already intensified mimetic desire. Since the modern world is characterized by the dominion of internal mimesis - in which imitable role models transform into obstacles worthy of hatred - imitation merely lurks in the underground, where its hegemony is even more absolute. The enemy brothers of internal mimesis adamantly reject imitation and are resolute about their difference from one another; what they miss, however, is that their need to differ only increases their identicalness, as they become more exact mirror reflections of one another.Wolfgang Palaver Hegemony Sayings By Wolfgang Palaver: the modern rejection of imitation does not mean that human beings escape mimesis in any
39 After almost two decades of productive revisionism, it is surely time to return our focus squarely to the consequences of America's flawed hegemony in the 1920s, as classically outlined by C. P. Kindleberger, The World in Depression, 1929-1939 (Berkeley, 1986) and elaborated by Link, Stabilisierungspolitik, and Costigliola, Awkward Dominion.Anonymous Hegemony Sayings By Anonymous: 39 After almost two decades of productive revisionism, it is surely time to return our
The scope of America's global hegemony is admittedly great, but its depth is shallow, limited by both domestic and external restraints.Zbigniew Brzezinski Hegemony Sayings By Zbigniew Brzezinski: The scope of America's global hegemony is admittedly great, but its depth is shallow, limited
Through their donations and work for voluntary organizations, the charitable rich exert enormous influence in society. As philanthropists, they acquire status within and outside of their class. Although private wealth is the basis of the hegemony of this group, philanthropy is essential to the maintenance and perpetuation of the upper class in the United States. In this sense, nonprofit activities are the nexus of a modern power elite.Teresa Odendahl Hegemony Sayings By Teresa Odendahl: Through their donations and work for voluntary organizations, the charitable rich exert enormous influence in
There are signs, these days, that the cultural hegemony of postmodernism is weakening in the West. When even the developers tell an architect like Moshe Safdie that they are tired of it, then can philosophical thinking be far behind?David Harvey Hegemony Sayings By David Harvey: There are signs, these days, that the cultural hegemony of postmodernism is weakening in the
We still find, especially in parts of academe, the damaging notion that everything is a struggle for power, or being empowered, or hegemony, or oppression: and that all competition is a zero-sum game. This is not more than repetition of Lenin's destructive doctrine. Intellectually, it is reductionism; politically, it is fanaticism.Robert Conquest Hegemony Sayings By Robert Conquest: We still find, especially in parts of academe, the damaging notion that everything is a
The apprenticeship to passivity - I know nothing more contrary to our habits. (The modern age begins with two hysterics: Don Quixote and Luther.) If we make time, produce and elaborate it, we do so out of our repugnance to the hegemony of essence and to the contemplative submission it presupposes. Taoism seems to me wisdom's first and last word: yet I resist it, my instincts reject it, as they refuse to endure anything - the heredity of revolt is too much for us. Our disease? Centuries of attention to time, the idolatry of becoming. What recourse to China or India will heal us?Emil Cioran Hegemony Sayings By Emil Cioran: The apprenticeship to passivity - I know nothing more contrary to our habits. (The modern
The American nation today is infantile so much as adolescent - that is ambivalent in its twin desire for both authoritarian structure and the end of parental hegemonyDavid Foster Wallace Hegemony Sayings By David Foster Wallace: The American nation today is infantile so much as adolescent - that is ambivalent in
Resistance is feasible even for those who are not heroes by nature, and it is an obligation, I believe, for those who fear the consequences and detest the reality of the attempt to impose American hegemony.Noam Chomsky Hegemony Sayings By Noam Chomsky: Resistance is feasible even for those who are not heroes by nature, and it is
The Greek city-states politicised citizen and subject, creating institutions that were way ahead of anything in China or India. The politicians of antiquity exercised a political and military, if not economic, hegemony on the culture as a whole. The idea of democracy was first born and practised here.Tariq Ali Hegemony Sayings By Tariq Ali: The Greek city-states politicised citizen and subject, creating institutions that were way ahead of anything
American feminism is currently dominated by a group of wome n wh o seek to persuad e the public that American wome n are not the free creatures we thin k w e are. Th e leaders an d theorists of the women's movemen t believe that ou r society is best described as a patriarchy, a "male hegemony," a "sex/gender system" in whic h the dominan t gender works to keep wome n cowering an d submissive. The feminists wh o hold this divisive view of ou r social an d political reality believe we are in a gender war, an d they are eager to disseminate stories of atrocity that are designed to alert wome n to their plight. Th e "gender feminists" (as I shall call them) believe that all ou r institutions, from the state to the family to the grade schools, perpetuate male dominance . Believing that wome n are virtually under siege, gende r feminists naturally seek recruits to their side of the gender war. They seek support . They seek vindication. They seek ammunition.Christina Hoff Sommers Hegemony Sayings By Christina Hoff Sommers: American feminism is currently dominated by a group of wome n wh o seek to
I live in a world in which 40 men control wealth equal to that of nearly 80 countries, where to maintain their hegemony, countless acts of mayhem and massacre must occur every day. This is the reality that forms and reforms my days as it does those of all people on this hapless planet. I do not think any more that writing - mine or another's - can change the world. Perhaps in their small way, writers can answer for those who are voiceless in their extreme deprivation and suffering, but at best, in the very smallest scheme, writing can provide a moment of grace, both for her who writes and him who reads, in a very dark world.Cecile Pineda Hegemony Sayings By Cecile Pineda: I live in a world in which 40 men control wealth equal to that of
The German experience brings us face to face with the major problem of the revolution in Western Europe. In these countries, the old bourgeois mode of production and the centuries-old civilisation which has developed with it have completely impressed themselves upon the thoughts and feelings of the popular masses. Hence, the mentality and inner character of the masses here is quite different from that in the countries of the East, who have not experienced the rule of bourgeois culture; and this is what distinguishes the different courses that the revolution has taken in the East and the West.Anton Pannekoek Hegemony Sayings By Anton Pannekoek: The German experience brings us face to face with the major problem of the revolution
Missiologists have in recent years begun to think seriously about inculturation, and historians have begun to learn from them. When the Christian message is inserted into a cultural framework, if the messengers are insensitive to the local culture the result can be cultural imperialism. On the other hand, if they grant too much hegemony to the local culture, the result at best is 'syncretism' and at worst 'Christo-paganism.' Things are most wholesome when sensitive interchange takes place leading to 'a truly critical symbiosis.' But for this to happen, there must be a second stage - a time of 'pastoral follow-up work,' of catechizing and life formation enabling the new faith to express its genius in the institutions and reflexes of its new host culture.Alan Kreider Hegemony Sayings By Alan Kreider: Missiologists have in recent years begun to think seriously about inculturation, and historians have begun

Part of the myth of Persian benevolence is the idea of an end to the exile in 539. But all that was ended was Neo-Babylonian hegemony, to be replaced by that of the Persians. (p. 65)Daniel L.

To the extent that the United States has, I don't like the word hegemony, the United States has influence around the world, I don't think that's based on to any significant degree on the fact that countries use the dollar as their major reserve.Robert C.

He might be better considered as an exponent of Tartar financial, military, and political methods, who used the shifting alliances of khans and princes to replace the Tartar yoke with a Muscovite one. In his struggle with the Golden Horde, whose hegemony he definitively rejected after 1480, his closest ally was the Khan of the Crimea, who helped him to attack the autonomy of his fellow Christian principalities to a degree that the Tartars had never attempted. From the Muscovite point of view, which later enjoyed a monopoly, 'Ivan the Great' was the restorer of 'Russian' hegemony. From the viewpoint of the Novgorodians or the Pskovians he was the Antichrist, the destroyer of Russia's best traditions. When he came to write his will, he described himself, as his father had done, as 'the much-sinning slave of God'.Norman Davies Hegemony Sayings By Norman Davies: He might be better considered as an exponent of Tartar financial, military, and political methods,
Orientalism is never far from what Denys Hay has called the idea of Europe,3 a collective notion identifying "us" Europeans as against all "those" non-Europeans, and indeed it can be argued that the major component in European culture is precisely what made that culture hegemonic both in and outside Europe: the idea of European identity as a superior one in comparison with all the non-European peoples and cultures. There is in addition the hegemony of European ideas about the Orient, themselves reiterating European superiority over Oriental backwardness, usually overriding the possibility that a more independent, or more skeptical, thinker might have had different views on the matter.Edward W. Said Hegemony Sayings By Edward W. Said: Orientalism is never far from what Denys Hay has called the idea of Europe,3 a
The philosophy of praxis does not aim at the peaceful resolution of existing contradictions in history and society, but is the very theory of these contradictions. It is not the instrument of government of the dominant groups in order to gain the consent and exercise hegemony over the subaltern classes. It is the expression of subaltern classes who want to educate themselves in the art of government and who have an interest in knowing all truths, even the unpleasant ones, and in avoiding the impossible deceptions of the upper class, and even more their own.Antonio Gramsci Hegemony Sayings By Antonio Gramsci: The philosophy of praxis does not aim at the peaceful resolution of existing contradictions in
Many guilty consciences have been created by the slave trade. Europeans know that they carried on the slave trade, and Africans are aware that the trade would have been impossible if certain Africans did not cooperate with slave ships. To ease their guilty consciences, Europeans try to throw the major responsibility for the slave trade on to the Africans. One major author on the slave trade (appropriately titled Sins of Our Fathers) explained how many white people urged him to state that the trade was the responsibility of African chiefs, and that Europeans merely turned up to buy captives- as though without European demand there would have been captives sitting on the beach by the millions! Issues such as those are not the principal concern of this study, but they can be correctly approached only after understanding that Europe became the center of a world-wide system and that it was European capitalism which set slavery and the Atlantic slave trade in motion. Pg. 82Walter Rodney Hegemony Sayings By Walter Rodney: Many guilty consciences have been created by the slave trade. Europeans know that they carried
Who can we trust with a monopoly of the planet killer weapons and unlimited powers of inspection and arrest? Why, a country big and modern enough to make peace-keeping a major industry; but not big enough to conquer anyone else or force its will on anyone without the support of a majority of nations; and reasonably well thought of by everyone. In short, Sweden.Poul Anderson Hegemony Sayings By Poul Anderson: Who can we trust with a monopoly of the planet killer weapons and unlimited powers

A young man's passion, a jaded siren's last chance for love, a world gone mad, cheap thrills, fast cars, expensive wines, the triumph of victory, the overthrow of ontologically incipient hegemony, and gum!

Looking at him she felt she knew what the people of antiquity had been like. Thirty centuries or more were effaced, and there he was, the alert and predatory sub-human, further from what she believed man should be like than the naked savage, because the savage was tractable, while this creature, wearing the armor of his own rigid barbaric culture, consciously defied progress. And that was what Stenham saw, too; to him the boy was a perfect symbol of human backwardness, and excited his praise precisely because he was "pure": there was no room in his personality for anything that mankind had not already fully developed long ago. To him he was a consolation, a living proof that today's triumph was not yet total; he personified Stenham's infantile hope that time might still be halted and man sent back to his origins.Paul Bowles Hegemony Sayings By Paul Bowles: Looking at him she felt she knew what the people of antiquity had been like.
One way or another, we spend our whole lives being conditioned into accepting some line or order, some position of domination or subjection. It's hard to unlearn such hierarchy, to undo such control. It's implicit.Cliff James Hegemony Sayings By Cliff James: One way or another, we spend our whole lives being conditioned into accepting some line
The unification of the planet's history, that humanist dream which God has spitefully allowed to come true, has been accompanied by a process of dizzying reduction. True, the termites of reduction have always gnawed away at life: even the greatest love ends up as a skeleton of feeble memories. But the character of modern society hideously exacerbates this curse: it reduces man's life to its social function; the history of a people to a small set of events that are themselves reduced to a tendentious interpretation; social life is reduced to political struggle, and that in turn to the confrontation of just two great global powers.Milan Kundera Hegemony Sayings By Milan Kundera: The unification of the planet's history, that humanist dream which God has spitefully allowed to
Moreover, since (as chapters 3 and 5 will argue) tolerance requires that the tolerated refrain from demands or incursions on public or political life that issue from their "difference," the subject of tolerance is tolerated only so long as it does not make a political claim, that is, so long as it lives and practices its "difference" in a depoliticized or private fashion. In addition to being at odds with the epistemological and political stance to which many politicized identities aspire, this requirement also results in the discursive suppression of the social powers that constitute "difference" as well as in the strengthening of the hegemony of unmarked cultures, ethnicities, races, or sexualities;Wendy Brown Hegemony Sayings By Wendy Brown: Moreover, since (as chapters 3 and 5 will argue) tolerance requires that the tolerated refrain

From the most ancient days of China to the myths of the Greeks we find the concept of an ideal, heavenly life for men under the hegemony of music.
