We live in a runaway world. New patterns of risk and uncertainty threaten the stability of our traditional institutions. To make sense of these profound changes in our lives, and invent new politics for the twenty–first century, we must understand the dynamic forces which are transforming our society. The Politics of Risk Society opens a dialog between Ulrich Beck?s sociology of Risk Society and key thinkers and opinion leaders from the world of politics and policy making. It explores the way we perceive risk and integrate change into our lives – insisting that these are essential forces driving policy development today. A new politics must engage actively with people?s lived experience. Contributions from Ulrich Beck, Anthony Giddens, Susie Orbach, John Gray, Ray Pahl, Martin Woollacott, Anna Coote, Patricia Hewitt and others explore the daily experience of risk – from intimate relationships to global warming – and offer their analysis and insight into how we understand this changing world. This book captures part of the spirit of the age and will be of absorbing interest to students of sociology, politics and social policy.
Money is related to great secrets and mysteries. In general, the economic laws work, but sometimes there are deviations from these laws. There is a law of economy, the mass of commodities has to correspond to the money mass, the violation of this law leads to inflation. But sometimes, as in the case of the American dollar, it does not. Why? We introduce a concept of "the overall connections of money", and argue that money is related to different social substances: the mass consciousness, the phenomenon of the pressure of the past, when money appear "out of nothing", etc. Karl Marx studied the economic processes, when the money has been strongly related to the goods, but nowadays these relations are changed. Sometimes, it seems that money has incomprehensible properties, for example, how can US dollars express American military power, in the sense that the laws of economy do not work with the same rigorous way as in the past? Or as a result of it, money has a great potential reserve and can be functional for quite a long time. That is what we are trying to figure out - why it happens and whether will potential power of the dollar end and when will it happen?
This work analyses the different levels at which China’s presence in Namibia affects Namibia’s domestic politics and foreign policy from a constructivist viewpoint. Constructivist theory is used to examine the different perceptions of the Chinese in Namibia and how these inform Namibian politics and Sino-Namibian relations. These perceptions are formed at different levels of society in formal and informal relations, state-to-state, state-to-business, business-to-business and individual-to-group relations. The way in which perceptions of Chinese involvement in Namibia at the grassroots level of society differ from those at the top increasingly has an effect on domestic Namibian politics and, as such, Sino-Namibian relations.

Truthfulness means more than merely telling the truth. It is a way of life. Truth defines who we are. We make the truth known to others not only by what we say but also by what we do. If we are to impart truth to others, we must be truthful in all ways. Our reputations for truthfulness and honesty will have powerful impact on how people respond to what we teach. They too would like to know, “what is responsible for this person’s moral strength?”Filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit Jesus said in prayer, “Father, I publicly praise you, Lord of Heaven and Earth. I thank you because you have shown to the uneducated what you have hidden from the wise and the educated. Oh yes father, this was how you wanted it to happen” What information does this verse in Luke 10 verse 21 want to let us know about our lives today?
God is present in Man. Man is a part of Society. God is present in Society also, for what is Society but a collection of individuals? So individual and the Society are two sides of the same coin. If the individual is the microcosm, then Society is the macrocosm. Society is a macro manifestation of the individual and God is immanent in Society the same way He is immanent also in the individual. It is for that reason one must serve Society, for when we serve Society in the spirit of selfless love, we are in fact serving God Himself. Hence, the popular sayings: "Hands that serve are holier than lips that pray" and "Service to man is service to God". An individual is bound to relate to Society differently a) when the individual does not feel there is divinity latent within, and b) when the individual feels that there is God within her or him. There would be an enormous difference between the two approaches. Man is as crucial to God's creation as is the cell to the human body. The individual is a part of society, which is a part of creation, which is a part of God - that is the divine chain.
