Sovereignty With All Its Intricacies: Or, a Discussion of the Vague Desires for Quebec Sovereignty

Sovereignty With All Its Intricacies: Or, a Discussion of the Vague Desires for Quebec Sovereignty

In Quebec, everybody is familiar, at least ostensibly, with the notion of sovereignty. In fact, the notion has been so widely used by independentists that it doesn’t seem to bear any semantic ambiguity, as if its meaning, as well as its conceptual implications, had become a no-brainer. By becoming a sovereign state, Quebec will at last, have they been harping on for the last fifty years, be able to take charge of its own destiny. But by focusing constantly on what they expect from the thing to yield, i.e., total legislative, judicial and executive power, they have neglected talking about the thing itself, where it comes from, where it goes, and how it works. Yet, there is already an effective sovereignty in place in Quebec, and it is very possible that, despite their subversive work, they have not been able to make it less immanent there than in the rest of Canada. $4.56 on Kindle.

AIPAC’s Grassroots Path to Congress: How Isaiah Kenen Built AIPAC to Be A Powerhouse

AIPAC’s Grassroots Path to Congress: How Isaiah Kenen Built AIPAC to Be A Powerhouse
This book looks at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s origins, foundations, and organizational structure.

Isaiah “Si” Kenen, AIPAC’s founder and long-time leader, created what can be described as the organization’s three-dimensional inverted pyramid, giving it far-reaching influence and impact.

Following Kenen’s work through AIPAC’s inception and reaching into the mid-1970s, the book looks at key moments and decisions in the years under Kenen’s leadership. These decisions helped a small lobby with minimal manpower and resources become a well-established network of organizations, individuals, and communities spanning the entire United States and advancing American relations with Israel.

From Israeli and American archival materials and protocols, interviews, news articles, and academic papers, the book analyzes Kenen’s decisions and AIPAC’s structure. Using the lens and language of management and human resources, the author sheds new light on the topic in this adaptation of his Thesis dissertation. The dissertation was awarded top honors on the Dean’s List for 2020. $0.99 on Kindle.

A View of British Politics

A View of British Politics
After three years of a parliament in chaos, Boris Johnson’s 2019 General Election victory has stabilized the House of Commons and left the Labour Party in disarray. But why do politicians go so wrong in believing certain individuals are worthy of power when from the outset some leaders have little hope of winning? My theories of the qualities a leader must possess and the kind of policies he/she must espouse are detailed in this essay on British Political History (1964-2019). My unique viewpoint has developed over 50 years of political interest and observations. $0.99 on Kindle

No one could have predicted it. Despite an impressive list of accomplishments, Donald Trump was denied what should have been an assured election victory in November 2020. In the weeks and months that followed, the voices of talk radio sounded the warning that the New Socialism would methodically suppress the freedoms promised in the Constitution, but it would take an America at the brink of revolution to restore what was lost.
