—. Pedagogy, Intellectuals, and Dissent in the Later Middle Ages: Lollardy and Ideas of Learning. Cambridge: Cambridge Univ. Press, 2001. [This book is about the place of pedagogy and the role of intellectuals in medieval dissent. Drawing on pedagogical theorists such as Freire and Giroux as well as a wealth of later medieval texts, Copeland shows how teachers radically transformed inherited ideas about classrooms and pedagogy as they brought their teaching to adult learners. The pedagogical imperatives of Lollard dissent were also embodied in the work of certain public figures, intellectuals whose dissident careers transformed the social category of the medieval intellectual.]

In any case, Jews are news, and when the news seems bad, Jews are blamed—everywhere and always—from the Black Plague to crises in the global economy & international terrorism.
It would be best for us to unify, it would be best for the world to support that unification directly rather than clubbing us as helping the goose to lay golden eggs is a smarter policy than killing it. Smashing a loose, flickering bulb will not just black-out the bulb, but the whole room. This is why anti-Semitism is known as “the Socialism of Fools.” It starts with the Jews, but never ends there.
Are we Jews really responsible though, or just wronged? By Jewish Law we are responsible. If one just passes an uncovered pit in the public thoroughfare that the person didn’t dig, the person is not responsible for any damage to say, an ox that stumbles into it. However, if one decides to be noble and board up the pit—but subsequently decides to take the boards back, then that person is now liable for future damage. The boards are our ancient, national commitment to be a role model of mutually responsible unity.
In the modern era, women have been honored for their militant participation during civil wars and the struggles against invaders. In the Taiping Rebellion mainly Hakka women with unbound feet fought both as soldiers and generals against the Manchu government. Women took up arms again in the Boxer Rebellion when young women organized themselves into militant Red Lantern groups. During the Cultural Revolution, the militancy of young female Red Guards attest to their willingness to become revolutionary heroes when struggling for what they perceived to be a just cause. Individual revolutionary female icons who have been held up as powerful figures for women to emulate include Chinas Chiu Chin (Qiu Jin), who in 1907 was executed by the Manchu government, and Soong-li Ching (Soong Ching-ling), wife of Dr. Sun Yat-sen and champion of social justice and womens liberation, and Deng Yingchao, an advocate of womens rights and wife of Zhou Enlai. The societal admiration of female heroines such as these has helped justify the actions of the women who managed successfully to define new roles for themselves alongside men.

Its restriction arguably run contrary to the very notion of human rights, undermining the freedom of religion, of association and of speech as enshrined and protected by the UNDR .
What is the role of religion in society today? - Kettlemag
Recently much exposure has been given in the media about anti Semitism in the Labour Party. These accusations seem to have been fomented after a remark from Ken Livingston. Livingston claimed that the Nazi party made a treaty with the Zionist party. For this comment Livingston was instantly demonised as anti Semite! Yet Livingston was simply stating a fact. The haavara agreement was signed in 1933 to facilitate movement of Jews from Germany to Palestine. I only researched this historically interesting item after becoming puzzled by the rather anxious attempts by the media to prove that religious intolerance is an integral part of socialist philosophy. Surely The Jewish Chronicle would have been aware of this treaty ,yet there does not seem to have been any attempt from Jewish sources to verify the accuracy of Livingston`s remark. Has he been censored for simply speaking the truth?
