I don't know who needs to hear this, but Harvard Law School is hegemonic indoctrination. If you would like to learn how it works, just follow Elie Mystal.

I'm sure the average person regardless of race, has a better grasp on the true nature of any court than Elie Mystal.
I am sure the biggest victim of the "War on Drugs" already understand the true nature of the federal courts.
Yes. Technically it is the judges who sentence people.

But what the crime bill did was take away discretion from the judges. Before, a judge could sentence a person who robbed a store to buy bread for his starving children differently than a man who robbed a bank for greed+
Instead, the crime bill forced judges to impose mandatory minimums on people. Many judges have sentenced people, but in their sentencing have explained why justice was not carried out and how they wish these mandatory minimums didn't exist.
On top of that, they adopted ADEPA in 1996. That erased most people's fundamental habeus corpus rights.

So not only were sentences harsher, but it became much harder to appeal them on grounds of justice.
This was in response to @ElieNYC blatant misinformation.
Of course, notice how the liberal
solution is to curtail Democracy instead of expanding it?

An unelected judge is not a legislature and should not have the power to "ignore bad laws" made by an elected legislature.

She made a concession. I guess people in El Alto totally frightened her.
If you are wondering, they twice blockaded the airport...making it impossible for her to fly out of sucre...

I have no idea why they waste so much time promoting this loser.

Don't get advice from losers. Get advice from winners!
Also, the actual interviewee's opinion of Kautsky seems to mirror that of Lenin!
Also, the people they interview also say the following about Kautsky. How the SPD became essentially the Democratic party.

The two question that Americans never ask is:
1.Against whose power is it checking?
2. For whom is it balancing?

Once they figure out the answer to that question, they won't trout it out like some kind of religious commandment.
It is obvious with the senate.…
And examining the nature of federal courts it should be painfully obvious

Whiteness is not an "innate thing." Race is a social construct. In Europe, these "white people" would be Slovak, German, French and feuding with each other.

Rejecting Pan-European identies is ESSENTIAL to class politics!
Materially, there is a huge difference between a European Nation like Britain and a European Nation like Serbia (which Britain bombs).....

There is no historical reason for the pan-European identity.....
As recently as 30 years did not exist!

We should talk about the "surrogacy industry" where too many people make too much money exploiting poor women in third world countries for their baby-carrying capacities.
By the way, surrogate mothers spend their entire pregnancy locked in a guarded "facility"... lest they may accidentally damage those delicate western genes
And no. It isn't informed consent!
