Sweden Is Top Democracy; Italy `Flawed,' Study Shows

Sweden is the world's most democratic state while Italy, a member of the Group of Seven industrialized nations, ranks as a ``flawed'' democracy and fails to make the top category of countries, the Economist said.

Countries are split into four regime types determined by their democratic credentials, according to a list published in the Economist's ``The World In 2007'' report. The classifications are: full democracies, flawed democracies, hybrid regimes and authoritarian regimes. The U.S., at 17th, and the U.K., at 23rd, ranked in the bottom half of the full democracies.

Also:

The Woodrow Wilson Department of Politics supports research and honors teaching that develop a critical understanding of national and international politics. Its distinguished faculty members seek to instill in their students a theoretical and practical appreciation of the ideas, institutions, and history that shape political life. The Department celebrates methodological pluralism: it seeks to promote an awareness of the strengths and weaknesses of different methodologies so that students can evaluate and select the approaches most suited to exploring the research questions in which they are interested. The faculty and students approach these questions through a rich variety of topics, including democratization; liberalism and its critics; race, gender, and ethnicity; political economy; and the role of human rights international affairs.

The Department is comprised of four subfields: American Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, and Political Theory. Although individual faculty members usually specialize in a particular area of research, empirical and theoretical interests are frequently shared across subfields.

Bolstering the Department's standing as a locus of rigorous empirical and theoretical research is its close affiliation with a number of research centers and institutions, including The Miller Center of Public Affairs, the Center for Politics, the Center for Survey Research, theCenter for South Asian Studies, the East Asia Center, The Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies, Studies in Women and Gender (SWAG), the Media Studies Program, the Center for Middle-East Studies, the Department of Latin American Studies, and the Center for Russian and East European Studies (CRESS).

So you are saying that a list of degrees offered is much more convincing for evidence of degrees than a link straight to the Politics degree itself from Aberdeen?

Is that what you are honestly saying?

But, hey, look!:

Undergraduate Program
The mission of the undergraduate major in Political Science is to educate students who are interested in politics into politically literate citizens capable of understanding governments and political processes in the U.S. and abroad, as well as the interactions among governments. The undergraduate major is intended to develop students' frames of reference and their critical and analytical skills in order to help them understand the political world.

There are currently about 1,400 undergraduate Political Science majors at the University of Florida. Every year 75-100 students participate in our internship program with local, state, and federal agencies and legislative offices. In addition, UF offers a variety of study abroad programs through the International Center. Students may join Pi Sigma Alpha, a Political Science honor society which publishes a newsletter and provides undergraduates with opportunities to serve the community, attend social events, and promote political awareness around campus. Another way to participate in department life is to write for the UF International Review, a student-run quarterly journal of international affairs.

We're on a role, manchild! Three different universities that all give out Politics degrees. Let's sweep this under the carpet too.

You should have asked yourself this question:

Threatening the president has potential for felony charges - did you not read that? She was being monitored by the Secret Service - did you not read that?

You keep clinging to the "arrested" angle; it matters not. The fact that we have two people now who have at the worst lost their jobs does not exactly say much about your freedom of speech being any better than ours.

Your freedom of speech, like ours, has consequences.

The only way that ours is any more "severe" than yours is because Britain is much more sensitive to racism and extremeism and does not pander to uneducated mobs of rednecks who still think America is in the Civil War.

I see how it works. You think that if you do not know about something, then it does not exist.

Umbrella term does exist, and furthermore, you are -again- playing word games to run away from the argument itself.

Face it: you think all cars are the same. You think are food is the same. You think all mammals are the same. You think all reptiles are the same. You think all nationalities are the same. You think all colours are the same.

That is your black-or-white logic in action. That is why you cannot answer any questions.

That is why, manchild, you play word games.

Interesting, yet according to Barefoot's black-or-white logic, because we have a monarch we do not qualify as a democracy.

Just like since Einstein was a man, he was not a German.

Sweden is also a democracy (no lies from you will change that)
Problem is the barfy butt breath’s mind only has 2 stages, 0 and 1. No in between and noting over 1, he has terrible trouble when 2 crops up in the conversation. Using two big words in one sentence, example democracy and monarchy totally screws with his idea of an ordered world formed in his mould. I really don’t know why he is blind to certain combinations of words, it’s rather like the term ‘Convention on Human Rights’, he can never associate the term with actual words. Strange really when he claims to speak English and denounces anyone who does not speak the same dialect of English as he lays claim to.

He also gets stuck in his 0/1 rut, e.g. how many times have you answered his oft repeated question “Is Sweden a monarchy, yes or no?” Same here, must be a hundred times I have agreed that the UK is a monarch and still he insists on repeatedly acting the same question, no matter how often he is answered.

This OCD surely cannot be healthy
