Commentary:
IRAQ IN RUINS
the failure of which may be but
a "symptom" of a greater "disease"

by Richard E. Berg-Andersson TheGreenPapers.com Staff

The fact of the matter is that, as we move further along into this 21st Century of ours, the Nation-State is failing.

No, its failure is not at all imminent: for those of my generation (I am now in my late 50s) and older- and even the generation of the children of those in my own age group- will, far more likely than not, not live to see the truest end of the Nation-State as the principal, where not even essential, polity of Mankind; as for the grandchildren and great-grandchildren (especially those of same yet unborn) of those within my own generation seeing such a happening-- maybe (though much of this will depend on whether or not average Life Expectancy will have significantly increased by the end of the current Century). But none of this at all changes the fact- and, yes, it is fact!- that the concept of the modern Nation-State, as the same slowly approaches its 400th "birthday" come mid-century, is surely already in decline....

CUTTING THROUGH ALL THE CRAP
Two Myths surrounding the Ukraine Crisis

by Richard E. Berg-Andersson TheGreenPapers.com Staff

As noted (at least once) elsewhere on this website, I accept the notion of 'American exceptionalism' (but- note well, dear reader- the small 'e'!): that is, in the sense of the so-called "exceptional child"- one who is noteworthily prodigious or otherwise gifted. For the American Declaration of Independence does, in fact, mark off a Novus Ordo Seclorum- a new order for the ages, an era in which Equal Justice under (Rule of) Law was herein, at last, being seriously contemplated (even if only in theory, and not yet in fullest practice) with what we Americans call 'the Bill of Rights' being the first real attempt to constitutionalize just such a ....

Clay Aiken is apparent winner of the NC CD 2 Democratic Primary
by Richard E. Berg-Andersson TheGreenPapers.com

In what appears to have been the result of the voting in Tuesday 6 May's Democratic Primary for the U.S. House of Representatives in NORTH CAROLINA's 2d Congressional District even had 2d-place finisher Keith Crisco not suddenly passed away on Monday 12 May, Clay Aiken has won that Primary and is, therefore, the Democratic nominee for that seat in Congress. Aiken will face incumbent Congresswoman Renee Ellmers- who won the Republican nomination for a third term in 6 May's voting- come the General Election this November.

Aiken is reported to have received 11,678 votes to 11,288 for Crisco in the initial canvass finalized on Tuesday 13 May, enough to have avoided a Runoff come 15 July- as well as a possible recount- as Aiken's 40.86% is above the 40% of the vote threshold necessary to avoid Runoff in the Tar Heel State and his 1.37% margin over Crisco also puts him beyond that which would have made a recount possible.

The Board of Elections has yet to officially certify the result but it seems highly unlikely that the Board will fail to do so.

UPDATE re: NC Congressional candidate KEITH CRISCO having been found dead on 12 May 2014
by Richard E. Berg-Andersson of TheGreenPapers.com Staff

Keith Crisco, former Secretary of Commerce in North Carolina and a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives in that State's 2nd Congressional District, was found dead during the early afternoon of Monday 12 May 2014. He was 71 years old. His death appears to be related to injuries sustained in a fall inside his home.

Mr. Crisco had finished second in the balloting, per the preliminary vote count on the night of the 6 May Primary, to Clay Aiken, a one-time runner-up on the television show American Idol, but was close enough to await word, after the official canvass of votes (expected to be completed by Tuesday 13 May), before deciding whether or not to ask for a recount. At last count, as reported in the media, Crisco was less than 370 votes behind Aiken and, in addition, Aiken was only just above the 40% of the vote threshold necessary to avoid a possible Runoff between he and Crisco come Tuesday 15 July of this year.
