01) Capitalism Hits Home: Why do 38% of Americans support Donald Trump? – Part 1


“In this part 1 of 2, Dr. Fraad takes on the question of why so many Americans still support Trump. Donald Trump has shown himself to be utterly incapable of helping Americans to recover from the CoronaVirus Pandemic . Americans are 5% of the world’s people and we have fully 25% of the world’s Covid victims. We have less testing of Americans than all the other nations have did for their people. The nations of Europe, such as Taiwan, China, Scandinavia, Vietnam,Singapore, and Cuba- nations rich and poor have protected their citizens and eradicated Covid infections. They do not have massive unemployment.”

Abstract

This article seeks to explain the emergence of a new field of study oriented toward sex laws and sexuality rights in comparative and global perspectives. We argue that this field comes into focus because of three changes in the social context: the introductions of sexuality into sex, of human rights into national laws, and of global into comparative perspectives. Each turn of the social kaleidoscope generates new objects of and rationales for scholarly analysis, along with new ways and reasons to think about existing objects of analysis. Together, these contextual changes inaugurate the global study of sexuality rights and invigorate the comparative study of sex laws. Theoretical shifts accompany the empirical developments. Phenomenological approaches arise alongside their realist counterparts. The consolidation of this new field of study is important not only on academic grounds: It suggests the dynamics of a wider field of policy and practice.”
