No human rights in Judaism
2013-01-25 08:26:00
The worst thing done to Judaism is redefining it in terms of rights: the right to life (pikuah nefesh), Jeffersonian freedom and democracy, and even privacy (homosexuality). Judaism has no rights, but only obligations. Our biblical obligations toward other humans are very limited: they should not be murdered or robbed, and that’s it generally. We have a few more obligations toward fellow Jews. At any rate there is no right to statehood, work, or migration. Palestinians are no more justified in claiming statehood than are the Native American Indians, Chechens, or Eskimo. Palestinians have no stronger right to travel to Israel for work than do the Mexicans to the United States. Liberal political theories are formulated in terms of protecting rights to avoid the government’s infringement. In Judaism, there can be no infringement: Jews, whether they want it or not, are the people of God and must do his bidding. We have no sphere which would be private and protected from God. We have...

Property rights in Brazil improve
2012-04-04 02:00:00
Brazil has made gains with its property rights for the fourth consecutive year. According to the Property Rights Alliance International Property Rights Index (IPRI), the nation saw its total score increase by 0.1 points compared to 2011. Every metric in the physical property rights category either improved or remained the same, which may add to the appeal of Brazilian real estate for investors. Overall, the country is ranked eighth in the South American region and 62nd globally. Last month, Samantha Gore, sales manager at UV10, stated she does not believe the Brazilian real estate market will experience a crash, despite the significant price increases recorded for residential property in the nation. She explained that, unlike in Europe, many of the homes in Brazil are being purchased by domestic owner-occupiers rather than investors. Ms Gore commented: "Instead of crashing, the consensus is that values will take a more modest path of growth."  
Estonia 'top-scoring CEE nation for property rights'
2012-04-03 02:00:00
Estonia has been named as the best nation in the central and eastern Europe (CEE) region in terms of its physical and intellectual property rights. In the International Property Rights Index (IPRI) 2012, compiled by Property Rights Alliance, Estonia was ranked 28th in the world and first in the CEE area. The IPRI noted its performance in the physical property rights section slid marginally, due to a fall in the level of finance available to those buying real estate in Estonia. Despite this decline, globally the country is still rated 25th in this category. Meanwhile, the nation also scored well in terms of registering property and the protection of this type of asset. The legal stability in Estonia is not the only reason to consider investing here, either. The Knight Frank Global House Price Index for the final quarter of 2011 revealed the country experienced the second-highest annual growth in real estate values in the world. According to the firm's figures, the cost of buyin...

Bruce McQuain If you write a check, buy liquor or any of a myriad of different transactions throughout the year, you are asked or required to produce a valid state issued ID.  Does that adversely effect the ability of minorities to write checks or buy alcohol?  Then there’s driving.  No license, no driving. Quite so. there’s only one reason that Eric holder in his happy little band of socialist minions is chasing this particular ghost.  They are black racists, seeking to ensure a socialist future. As Bruce says, this is…. …The same ...
