The ideal political vision is moving away from us
The triumph of liberal democracy is no doubt a foregone conclusion. In fact, Fukuyama's ideal polity is the product of great political forces and a particular historical moment. Democracy itself is of course a very old political principle, which seems to be based on the naive idea of rule by the people, or dēmos. The central idea is that individuals should not be seen as powerless individuals under the whip of a tyrant, but should be able to participate in the establishment of governing institutions and rules. To achieve this, they must have the opportunity to participate actively in political life.

Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. That’s what they told me when I was appointed High Executioner for the Galactic Empire. I soon found out that was a bold-faced lie. It will be easy, they said, and painless for the condemned. Those slated for execution were to be jettisoned from Ares X prison hold, one of the largest penitentiary satellites in the Ganymede Galaxy. As the appointed High Executioner for the Galactic Empire, I was expected not to just observe from the safety of the porthole in the hold, I had to don a flight suit and float out into that nothingness and serve as a witness.

How drones are transforming business: AgriTech
The airplane has been the only way to fly worldwide for almost a century. Now, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), better known as drones, are bringing the sky to the masses.

That's The Game
Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. Turns out, most every sound is whisked away by the gaping expanse of the cosmos— horror, yes, but elation, and surprise, and melancholy, and blithe, too. And the whir of engine on top of it all, smothered or beckoned away—a matter of perspective, really—by the stars, turning this untread celestial terrain oddly peaceful. Suspending this barren ship against its starry neighbors, nigh indistinguishable to their gentle presence—or it would be, if those stupid burning pinprick explosions would stop being so loud.
Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. That is exploding in my mind as I see that I have landed on an asteroid without atmosphere, and I am definitely not in a space suit. All those hours of repetitive training takes over and I immediately switch focus to my second destination choice. All those boring hours that seemed so worthless have now kicked in and I am essentially on autopilot. I know that I cannot try to breathe, to do so is instant death. The refocus to my secondary destination will take only 15 seconds but with what I have done to get to and then away from the worthless piece of space rock has taken almost a full 2 minutes so far and if the secondary is also a toxic selection, then I will need to use my final fail safe. Just how long can I hold my breath, damn I really didn’t concentrate on that part of the training, never thought I would need it.
