Teaching was my transition from student life to working life. In those days, our system of education was a little different. The number of students in each class was huge. I think in political science general, which I taught, it was around 100.
The miserable failures of capitalist economies in the Great Depression were root causes of worldwide social and political disasters.
I know what motivated you was not just a political campaign. It was your love of our country.
As foreign minister of Norway, I learnt how natural changes provoked by climate change are creating new sources of political instability.
Jonas Gahr Store
I'm rather cynical about the way the honours system is used, frankly. A whole lot of the honours system is used for political purposes by the government in power.
The bottom line is that we have entered an age when local communities need to invest in themselves. Federal and state dollars are becoming more and more scarce for American cities. Political and civic leaders in local communities need to make a compelling case for this investment.
We propose in the following Treatise to give an outline of the Science which treats of the Nature, the Production, and the Distribution of Wealth. To that Science we give the name of Political Economy.
Nassau William Senior
Quite frankly, I think political correctness is the worst form of censorship. You're not allowed to speak your mind unless you're black, or unless you're a terrorist, or unless you're an Arab or a minority people. Then you can say what you like. But if you are like a lot of us you are not supposed to say certain things.

The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of political liberty.
Judicial abuse occurs when judges substitute their own political views for the law.
Lamar S. Smith

There are domains in which expertise is not possible. Stock picking is a good example. And in long-term political strategic forecasting, it's been shown that experts are just not better than a dice-throwing monkey.
The challenge is to lend conviction even to the voices which advocate views I find personally abhorrent, whether they are political Islamists or officers justifying a coup.
The problem with the West is that they start with political reform going towards democracy. If you want to go towards democracy, the first thing is to involve the people in decision making, not to make it.
Being Muslim has become synonymous with pointed questions, with tension and mistrust, even with conflict. It has become a global phenomenon with profound consequences for inter-communal relations, political rhetoric and policies at the local, regional, national and international level.
Politicians also have no leisure, because they are always aiming at something beyond political life itself, power and glory, or happiness.
Political leaders still think things can be done through force, but that cannot solve terrorism. Backwardness is the breeding ground of terror, and that is what we have to fight.
Education remains the key to both economic and political empowerment.
To tell the truth is to become beautiful, to begin to love yourself, value yourself. And that's political, in its most profound way.
