ANARCHISM (from the Gr. , and , contrary to authority), the name given to a principle or theory of life and conduct under which society is conceived without government harmony in such a society being obtained, not by submission to law, or by obedience to any authority, but by free agreements concluded between the various groups, territorial and professional, freely constituted for the sake of production and consumption, as also for the satisfaction of the infinite variety of needs and aspirations of a civilized being.
The news of the day as it reaches the newspaper office is an incredible medley of fact, propaganda, rumor, suspicion, clues, hopes, and fears, and the task of selecting and ordering that news is one of the truly sacred and priestly offices in a democracy. For the newspaper is in all literalness the bible of democracy, the book out of which a people determines its Conduct.walter lippmann
The general verdict among the German generals I interrogated in 1945 was that Field-Marshal von Manstein had proved the ablest commander in their Army, and the man they had most desired to become its Commander-in-Chief. It is very clear that he had a superb sense of operational possibilities and equal mastery in the Conduct of operations, together with a greater grasp of the potentialities of mechanized forces than any other commander who had not been trained in the tank arm. In sum, he had military genius.erich von manstein
I like the Albanians much; they are not all Turks; some tribes are Christians. But their religion makes little difference in their manner or Conduct. They are esteemed the best troops in the Turkish service.
In many instances the Conduct of colored workmen, and those who have spoken for them, has not been in asking or demanding that equal rights be accorded to them as to white workmen, but somehow conveying the idea that they are to be petted and coddled and given special consideration and special privilege. Of course that can't be done.samuel gompers
On reflection, moral judgment in the arts appears rather as a tribute to their power to influence emotion and possibly Conduct. And reflecting further on what some critics do today, one sees that a good many have merely shifted the ground of their moralism, transferring their impulse of righteousness to politics and social issues.jacques barzun
The issue which concern all of us as citizens of this country, irrespective of our political beliefs and ethnicity, is this: if we are to forbear all legal proceedings against the perpetrators of the events of 19 May 2000 what does that say about our sense of right and wrong? What does it say to those that were directly and indirectly harmed by their actions? Without an accounting, we encourage repetition of this Conduct, make light of the pain and suffering people endured and suggest to the impressionable that such Conduct is appropriate.ratu joni madraiwiwi
The only good war book to come out during the last war was Under Fire by Henri Barbusse. He was the first to show us, the boys who went from school or college to the last war, that you could protest in anything besides poetry, the gigantic useless slaughter and lack of even elemental intelligence in generalship that characterized the Allied Conduct of that war from 1915 to 1917.henri barbusse
When a child can be brought to tears, not from fear of punishment, but from repentance for his offence, he needs no chastisement. When the tears begin to flow from grief at one's own Conduct, be sure there is an angel nestling in the bosom.horace mann
It is a matter of course and of absolute necessity to the Conduct of business, that any discretionary businessman must be free to deal or not to deal in any given case; to limit or withhold the equipment under his control, without reservation. Business discretion and business strategy, in fact, has no other means by to work out its aims. So that, in effect, all business sagacity reduces itself in the last analysis to judicious use of sabotage.thorstein veblen
Therefore only an utterly senseless person can fail to know that our characters are the result of our Conduct.Aristotle
When the history of Oregon comes to be written the mind of the historian will be impressed by the earnestness and sincerity of character the unobtrusive, unostentatious Conduct of those who formed its population from the first reclaiming of the wilderness the pioneer epoch to the more refined advancement into social and political existence.
A more detailed, but still uncontroversial comprehensive, definition is that philosophy is rationally critical thinking, of a more or less systematic kind about the general nature of the world (metaphysics or theory of existence), the justification of belief (epistemology or theory of knowledge), and the Conduct of life (ethics or theory of value). Each of these three elements...
When the history of Oregon comes to be written the mind of the historian will be impressed by the earnestness and sincerity of character the unobtrusive, unostentatious Conduct of those who formed its population from the first reclaiming of the wilderness the pioneer epoch to the more refined advancement into social and political existence.George Law Curry
Most of the American laws defining race are not to be compared with those once enforced by Nazi Germany, the latter being relatively more liberal. In the view of the Nazis, persons having less than one fourth Jewish blood could qualify as Aryans, whereas many of the American laws specify that persons having one-eighth, one-sixteenth, or "any ascertainable" Negro blood are Negroes in the eyes of the law and subject to all restrictions governing the Conduct of Negroes.stentson kennedy
"How many times, have I had to seat women whom I received at audiences next to me, rather than facing me, in order to avoid general embarrassment? Nothing should compel us to suffer such trials. It puts the nerves of men and the modesty of women to a severe test." Bourguiba on people who patronized the Zéro de Conduite (Zero for Conduct), nightclub- "practice a shameful exhibitionism in morbid and degrading dances."habib bourguiba
Men, indeed, appear to me to act in a very unphilosophical manner when they try to secure the good Conduct of women by attempting to keep them always in a state of childhood.
You cannot have a proud and chivalrous spirit if your Conduct is mean and paltry; for whatever a man's actions are, such must be his spirit.demosthenes
Man is sick and nations have gone mad.You would not even tolerate for one moment the Conduct in an individual that is commonplace in the acts of some nations. You would lock up such a person.l. ron hubbard
The only principles of public Conduct that are worthy of a gentleman or a man are to sacrifice estate, ease, health, and applause, and even life, to the sacred calls of his country.james otis
The sneaking arts of underling tradesmen are thus erected into political maxims for the Conduct of a great empire; for it is the most underling tradesmen only who make it a rule to employ chiefly their own customers. A great trader purchases his good always where they are cheapest and best, without regard to any little interest of this kind.Adam Smith
In Britain, journalists often view comparisons with our society going back two, three, or seven centuries as more relevant than comparisons going back two, three, or seven decades. Drunkenness centuries ago is more illuminating than comparative sobriety 30 years ago. The distant past, selectively mined for evidence that justifies our current Conduct, becomes more important than living memory.anthony daniels
It has been frequently remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their Conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force.Alexander Hamilton
The number of those who do selfless public service and those who serve without expecting any return, should increase. Their sterling qualities should show the way to the people at large. Their life would be a model to show how man should Conduct himself in public life.periyar e. v. ramasamy
That it does not matter what a man believes is a statement heard on every side today. … What he believes tells him what the world is for. How can men who disagree about what the world is for agree about any of the minutiae of daily Conduct? The statement really means that it does not matter what a man believes so long as he does not take his beliefs seriously.richard weaver
To enlarge the sphere of social happiness is worthy of the benevolent design of a Masonic institution; and it is most fervently to be wished, that the Conduct of every member of the fraternity, as well as those publications, that discover the principles which actuate them, may tend to convince mankind that the grand object of Masonry is to promote the happiness of the human race.
I think it is now clearly established that counsel appearing for a party in an action is held out as having authority, and has full authority, as to all matters which relate to the Conduct of the action and its settlement, and further that, notwithstanding a limit may have been placed upon the authority of counsel, the party for whom he appears is bound by such settlement unless the fact that the counsel's apparent authority had been limited was communicated to the other side.
I am for [...] for freedom of the press, and against all violations of the Constitution to silence by force and not by reason the complaints or criticisms, just or unjust, of our citizens against the Conduct of their agents.
I take it that reasonable human Conduct is part of the ordinary course of things.
