A la fecha en Colombia, en lo recorrido del hasta el mes de julio se reportan personas clasificadas como menores o adolescentes, quienes fueron asesinadas. They only show a social decomposition on the part of the agents of the armed conflict that for decades has stunned the national territory, adding to it the ineffectiveness of the national government that has not guaranteed a stable and lasting peace. To date in Colombia, in the period from to July, people have been reported as minors or adolescents, who were murdered. The anger and frustrations expressed in the streets by Malians have deeper reasons. Mali has been going through a multidimensional crisis for years, including mistrust of governance and political power. The opposition is jointly responsible for the situation today that precipitates Mali towards new uncertainties. The opposition radically refuses the roadmap to end the crisis. We express our full solidarity with all the democratic voices in Mali.

Driven by a decline in satisfaction with work life and family life, overall well-being initially plummeted in countries directly affected by the fall of the Iron Curtain, reveals an important new study. The research, forthcoming in the August issue of the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization , expands our understanding of the correlation between happiness and democracy — and whether economic concerns outweigh political reforms in their impact on subjective well-being.
Easterlin examines life satisfaction in thirteen countries in the so-called communist-bloc using self-reported data from a range of sources, particularly the World Values Survey. Communist-bloc countries first appeared in the large-scale Survey in , when a representative population in each country was asked to rate “life these days, as a whole” on a scale of 1 dissatisfied to 10 satisfied. Other surveys before and after the fall of the Soviet Union in asked similar questions about specific aspects of life — such as work, health, and standard of living — and about “the way democracy works in your country.
The study finds that the trend in overall satisfaction with democracy is actually slightly negatively correlated to the trend in reported happiness after the fall of the Iron Curtain. This correlation is not statistically significant, according to Easterlin, but undermines the assertion by some scholars that democratization in these countries significantly increased happiness.
Satisfaction with work, childcare and health all decreased significantly during the transition from socialism to capitalism, reflecting a marked rise in symptoms of social stress such as divorce rates, suicide rates, domestic violence and increased alcoholism and drug use, Easterlin finds. However, people were much more satisfied with one particular aspect of their lives after the fall of the Soviet Union: their material circumstances, including standard of living, goods availability and the environment.
Disparities in life satisfaction also increased after the fall of the Soviet Union, particularly along the lines of age and education. Those older than 30, who had already established careers under the socialist system, were far more likely to be dissatisfied with life under capitalism than younger adults.

The ambition and excitement of the movement, and its youthful members Bernie aside , pulses through this and most other new socialist texts.

Several past and present states have declared themselves socialist states or in the process of building socialism. The majority of self-declared socialist countries have been Marxist—Leninist or inspired by it, following the model of the Soviet Union or some form of people’s or national democracy. They share a common definition of socialism and they refer to themselves as socialist states on the road to communism with a leading vanguard party structure, hence they are often called communist states.
Meanwhile, the countries in the non-Marxist—Leninist category represent a wide variety of different interpretations of the term socialism and in many cases the countries do not define what they mean by it. Modern uses of the term socialism are wide in meaning and interpretation. As a sovereign state is a different entity from the political party that rules that state at any given time, a country may be ruled by a socialist party without the country itself claiming to be socialist or the socialist party being written into the constitution.
This has occurred in both one-party and multi-party political systems. In particular, there are numerous cases of social democratic and democratic socialist parties winning elections in liberal democratic states and ruling for a number of terms until a different party wins the elections. While socialist parties have won many elections around the world and most elections in the Nordic countries , many of those countries have not adopted socialism as a state ideology or written the party into the constitution.
Several countries with liberal democratic constitutions mention socialism. India is a liberal democracy that has been ruled by non-socialist parties on many occasions, but its constitution makes references to socialism. Certain other countries such as Croatia ,  Hungary ,  Myanmar  and Poland  have constitutions that make references to their communist and socialist past by recognizing or condemning it, but without claiming to be socialist in the present.
Self-identification is the only criterion used by the list, therefore it includes all countries that have claimed to be socialist , even if their claims are disputed.
Such willingness drops to eight in 10 for candidates who are evangelical Christians or are gays or lesbians. Between six and seven in 10 would vote for someone who is under 40 years of age, over 70, a Muslim or an atheist. Just one group tested — socialists — receives majority opposition. These findings are based on a Gallup question asking, “Between now and the political conventions, there will be discussion about the qualifications of presidential candidates — their education, age, religion, race and so on.

Even socialists themselves seem to struggle to define the politics of socialism, partly because it depends on who you ask. Those who call themselves socialists are largely young and full of ideas to change the mainstream political machine as we know it. Will it work? Only time will tell, but small victories, such as that of Ocasio-Cortez, continue to rally and invigorate the small but growing cohort of those who identify as socialists.
Socialists are far more left-wing and hate to be called liberals, because, to them, liberals are just squishy moderates. Tired of getting played by men who call themselves socialists IRL. You did it! Thanks for joining our newsletter list.
