The Idea of the State

The Idea of the State

December 8, 2019

Written by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Narrated by Joshua Noyer

"The perpetually recurring misapprehension of Freedom consists in regarding that term only in its formal, subjective sense, abstracted from its essential objects and aims; thus a constraint put upon impulse, desire, passion — pertaining to the particular individual as such — a limitation of caprice and self-will is regarded as a fettering of Freedom. We should on the contrary look upon such limitation as the indispensable proviso of emancipation. Society and the State are the very conditions in which Freedom is realized."

Written and Narrated by Joshua Noyer

If State and government are not identical, then what are they; more importantly what is the State? Government exists within its institutions. Executive bodies, legislatures, and courts are easily identifiable and having shape and form.  The State, being the product of human thought, lacks these qualities, so how can its portrait be drawn? How is it to be portrayed?

Written and Narrated by Joshua Noyer

When our political system is built upon the same capitalist principles: the ideas of the State, general will, and public good, ideals which animated the political class at one time are pushed to the side as they have no place in a society dominated by the marketplace.

The Founding and Manifesto of Futurism

The Founding and Manifesto of Futurism

October 7, 2019

Written by Filippo Marinetti

Narrated by Sean Salas

It is from Italy that we launch through the world this violently upsetting incendiary manifesto of ours. With it, today, we establish Futurism, because we want to free this land from its smelly gangrene of professors, archaeologists, ciceroni and antiquarians. For too long has Italy been a dealer in second-hand clothes. We mean to free her from the numberless museums that cover her like so many graveyards.

Corporate State and the NRA

Written by Giussepe Bottai

Narrated by Evan Tobia

"But given the present situation, it would seem that American public opinion must change greatly before the state, capital, and labor will be in a position to move harmoniously toward their common goal. In Italy a good part of the journey has already been completed. An equilibrium has been established, without a complete fusion or loss of individuality, between capital and labor, between labor and the state, and between the state and capital."

Community of Time

Written by Josiah Royce

Narrated by Joshua Noyer

A crowd, whether it be a dangerous mob, or an amiably joyous gathering at a picnic, is not a community. It has a mind, but no institutions, no organization, no coherent unity, no history, no traditions.

“Pp. 35-53.” The Problem of Christianity Lectures Delivered at the Lowell Institute in Boston, and at Manchester College, Oxford Vol II, by Josiah Royce, Macmillan, 1914.
