Catos wrote:Dude congrats! You might have mentioned this before, but what did you study for your master's?

Political sciences. Primary specialization - political economy and theory, secondary - policy analysis. :-)

Oooooh. Any specific focus in your theory studies or a general study?

Environmental Support wrote:Oooooh. Any specific focus in your theory studies or a general study?

Well in political science I'm focusing primarily on Austrian school - currently Ludwig Lachmann's theory of divergent expectations (I belong to irrationalist wing of the school). And Rothbard + Mises combo of course :-D. But I also deal with Public Choice theory, Arrow's theorem and it's usage in political systems.

In political theory I'm focusing on critical theory - mostly "classical" neo-marxists like Adorno, Horkheimer and Marcuse (my favorite). But I'm also studying post-marxist critique of post-industrial capitalist legitimacy, where are interesting concepts of "compensation" of this lost legitimacy like deliberative model of Jurgen Habermas, or Agoristic democracy of Chantal Mouffe. I would like to know more about postmodern structuralism and post-structuralism (Focault etc.). Oh and neoinstitutionalism... yes, neoinstitutionalism... expecially rationalist institutionalism :-D.

Things that I'm not focusing on (but in future I could I guess :-D), but know something about it as well is - Hegel and dialectic, Multiculturalism of Will Kymlicka and Yuli Tamir, feminism and it's development, classical Marxism, Classical political economy, Cameralist economics, Keynesianism, Lausanne school of economy.

...I really HATE political marketing (marketing overall), medial studies, theories of political systems, theories of parties and party system, international relations theories (except world-system by Wallerstein) etc etc... there is a ton of stuff that I really don't care about but still need to study it :-D.

Isn't neoinstituionalism somewhat like normative theory applied to politics? I've only really studied institutionalism in reference to international cooperation or domestic social and economic development. Less theory and more hard application.

The polls seem somehow....biased.

Cerveskia wrote:The polls seem somehow....biased.

? I'm curious as to what way. There's definite personal bias in the way I wrote about them, but I don't think the polls themselves are.

The first one is designed to be difficult to answer. I'd expect the majority of people to agree that "Black Lives Matter". I'd also expect the majority of people to agree that having a police force is better than not having a police force. How do you weigh up which is more important?

The second asked who you thought would win, not who you want to win. And the third was just silly.

The Ambassadors Reception
Do the polls really reflect the general values of NS, or just a vocal minority who actually reads and participates in them? I've seen more than a few of those nations which seem to always vote in any major poll that exists.

It's a few polls set up for fun in a browser game. I don't feel the need to go that deep.
