Alister Macintyre42,106Do not confuse this circle with the one I have on Native American Indian interests.  My India Circle has people whose lives have either passed thru the great nation of India, are there now, or interested in India.  My interests range world wide, some nations more than others.  I recently started an Asia circle, and tried to pour into it my circles for Australia, China, Japan, India, some other countries, but bumped into another of G+ silly ceilings.  I have circles for several major regions of the world, including Middle East, Eu-W, and Eu-other.  I also have circles for specific nations like Germany and Haiti.2014-03-27 18:26:53148002

You know how the Left-Right political axis has been superseded and that we now have to use a two dimensional political compass http://www.politicalcompass.org ?

The new conventional wisdom is that we now have to account for four quadrants of political opinion ranging from social and economic liberalism through to social and economic conservatism. You know, the "I'm socially liberal but fiscally conservative" types. We've been told that the old political divisions no longer apply in the post Cold War, post New Deal era.

Actually, not so much. In reality, the four quadrant system is really only populated in two of those quadrants and so the old Left-Right axis is still there. Basically there are no libertarians in numerically significant numbers. They are in reality still either liberal leaning or conservative leaning.

In my experience, conservatives tend... more »

This story is being played out in Australia as well. As the ALP desperately tries to mirror the Liberal party it loses ground to the Greens. Voters when asked to choose between a conservative party and a conservative party-lite generally prefer the Real Thing™.

The dynamic here is that traditional labour and social democratic parties, a century on from their founding, have lost their political mooring. The consequence is for them to try and find it by competing for the same base the traditional conservative party. This is not a recipe for success, particularly in a recession where the "sensible centre" of politics has all but disappeared.

"The essential fallacy of British politics is that there is a large centre ground, and that this is where elections are decided. As Nick Clegg has discovered to his cost, in a period of economic depression this area has a tendency to shrink. Yet as the political situation polarises and the establishment parties feel the earth fall away beneath them, they cling ever more tightly to their belief in this centre ground. Labour is doing just this, as a matter of both principle and strategy. It is doing it because it thinks it’s the right thing to do, because it’s what the party is used to doing, and because it can’t do anything else."___This story is being played out in Australia as well.

Somebody please tell Jacqui Lambie to stop worrying.

For those of you who are worried about creeping sharia law in the United States, here's a comprehensive list of places where it will ever show up:

(1) Wills, trusts, and other matters of estate law. The Koran includes some mandatory rules about inheritance. In a Muslim will, two-thirds of the estate is set aside for the dhawu al-farāʾḍ. The remainder is distributed as the testator prefers. Depending on the school of Islamic jurisprudence being followed, some of the remaining share can be dedicated to public use -- sharia law has its own equivalent of the common-law trust. 

How does someone end up with an Islamic will? Simple: they're a believing Muslim who writes a will, then specifies "sharia law" as an interpretive rule to resolve all ambiguities. The choice-of-laws rules governing wills are less powerful than those governing contracts, but many of these wills will end up valid. 

(2) Contract law. Most people who aren't attorneys don't know this, but if you look at any form contract you've signed, you'll find that it specifies the law of a specific state as the governing substantive law. This is pretty uncontroversial: the purpose of a contract, after all, is to memorialize the intents of the parties, and insofar as the intents are changed by the interpretive rules applied, choice of law can be pretty important.

This isn't limited to US law. Parties can agree to whichever sort of law they prefer, so long as it's sufficiently concrete that it can produce a ruling. French civil law? Sure. German law? Okay. Sharia law? Uh, that's weird, but, fine, I guess.

Why might people choose sharia law in their contract? Generally, it's because they're borrowing money at interest, which sharia forbids. Fortunately, you can do a collateralized sale and rent-back, which for all practical purposes is the same thing as a mortgage. If you specify sharia as a Muslim borrower, you get the increased consumer protections (and higher functional interest rate) which come along with a sharia contract.

(3) Binding arbitration. Occasionally, two parties might agree to bypass courts and attend binding arbitration with a religious figure. This is actually pretty common among Orthodox Jews, among Mormons, and among the Amish. Once you've gotten your binding arbitration, you take it to the court to be enforced; if you've agreed to it -- and what you've agreed to is basically a contract -- the court doesn't make substantial inquiries into the fairness of the arbitration you've engaged in.

This obviously can end up screwing one party or the other. It cannot, however, screw anyone who hasn't agreed to use sharia law as the interpretive framework from the moment the dispute arose.

(4) Prenuptial agreements. I've never seen this happen, or even heard of it happening, but there might potentially be an issue with prenuptial agreements -- which are, again, contracts -- drafted to include divorce terms congruent with sharia law. Hypothetically, this could actually be a problem.

In practice, however, prenuptial agreements are treated as a generally disreputable kind of contract, and interpreted according to a much lower unconscionability standard. Is it possible that someone could end up in a bad state this way? Sure. Is it different than any other kind of unconscionable prenuptial agreement? No.

That said, here's two places where it won't show up:

(1) Between two people who didn't agree, at some point, to resolve their dispute using sharia law. In every example discussed above, the way you end up in a US court, dealing with sharia law, is pretty simple: you agree to resolve your dispute according to sharia law. If you didn't agree to do that, then you don't end up in court, grappling with principles of Islamic law. Conditions would have to fundamentally change in order to subject anyone to sharia law who didn't want to be.

(2) In international child-custody cases. First: there are no Hague Convention signatories which operate under Islamic law. Even if we were required to send a child to another country to resolve a case under the appropriate local law, we wouldn't be sending them to a state under Sharia. Second: even if we did so, we'd be doing it because the child was a domiciliary of a state under sharia -- as in, they actually lived there. Third, Article 13(b) of the Hague Convention reads as follows:

Notwithstanding the provisions of the preceding Article, the judicial or administrative authority of the requested State is not bound to order the return of the child if the person, institution or other body which opposes its return establishes that [...] there is a grave risk that [the child's] return would expose the child to physical or psychological harm or otherwise place the child in an intolerable situation.

And Article 20 goes on to say: 

The return of the child under the provisions of Article 12 may be refused if this would not be permitted by the fundamental principles of the requested State relating to the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms.

Assuming that ISIS took over Syria, then signed the Hague Convention, and then citizens of the Caliphate began requesting the return of refugee children, the law does not behave mechanically. If there's a chance of grave harm to the child in particular, or grave danger imposed by the law in question, then the US can simply give the other Hague Convention signatory the finger and deny the motion to send off the child.

There are, in other words, no dangers here. Sharia panic is wholly imaginary.___Somebody please tell Jacqui Lambie to stop worrying.

In my experience, conservatives tend to brand themselves as "libertarian" when their faction is out of power. When in power they are bigger champions of the State and its military might than any statist liberal.

The real basis of the Left-Right split is not hard to understand. It's about hierarchy and social stratification: those who are against it and those who are for it.___

The big untold story here is the level of regulatory capture by big corporations at the Australian Tax Office.

Just like in the US, Australian government officials that are skilled enough to understand the complex measures that corporations use to move profits around have a high market price and there is a revolving door of employment going on between the ATO and the top accounting firms that service the corps. Nobody seems to wants to upset this cozy arrangement and nobody at the ATO wants to go hard against any of their potential future employers.

The only antidote to this is public transparency and accountability but the insiders would prefer a friendlier relationship with the profit shifters.

After the statue was removed by park officers, a group of artists who call themselves "The Illuminator" — not related to those who built the original sculpture — used laptops and projection equipment to cast an image of Snowden in a haze of smoke at the spot where the sculpture had been.

Updated to include the phenomenon in question http://mobile.nytimes.com/2013/02/14/world/asia/in-japan-the-fax-machine-is-anything-but-a-relic.html?referrer=

I think this phenomenon is less about Japan's ageing population and more about how highly the Japanese value handwriting. Newer technologies do not make corresponding by writing as easy as the fax machine does. I expect this to change as better input devices that treat handwriting as first class become more common.

The only Western parallel to this I can think of is our attachment to hand signing documents with a signature. That feature kept fax machines alive for many years past their use by date. That role is often still being performed by office scanners.

Instead of saying "I just received a warrant with a gag order," the potential recipient keeps repeating "I have not received any warrants." If the recipient stops saying that, the rest of us are supposed to assume that he has been served one.

Lots of organizations maintain them. Personally, I have never believed this trick would work. It relies on the fact that a prohibition against speaking doesn't prevent someone from not speaking. But courts generally aren't impressed by this sort of thing, and I can easily imagine a secret warrant that includes a prohibition against triggering the warrant canary. And for all I know, there are right now secret legal proceedings on this very issue.

Australia has sidestepped all of this by outlawing warrant canaries entirely:

Section 182A of the new law says that a person commits an offense if he or she discloses or uses information about "the existence or non-existence of such a [journalist information] warrant." The penalty upon conviction is two years imprisonment.
Expect that sort of wording in future US surveillance bills, too."

There must be other approaches. For example, "I have never seen a warrant"___Thanks Bill Shorten.

The ALP and the LNP are "partners" when it comes to national security gutting the civil rights of Australian citizens.

More on the longevity of Australian Aboriginal legends. Hard to know if this represents an ancient memory or just a very good guess by later peoples. Nevertheless it's interesting to ponder.

In classical mythology Saturn ate his own children out of a fear that they would one day usurp him (a fear that was well-founded as it turned out).

In the story of our solar system, Saturn actually inhibited Jupiter from preventing the birth of rocky planets ...
