More > Trump, personifying what American life is all about: Money and Winning, no matter what the cost. This attitude has lead to America’s aggressive foreign policy that Militarism and Nuclear Weapons play a legitimate role in international politics; primitive policies that distort national spending priorities, as millions of poverty stricken Americans take refuge in a negative lifestyle of individualism; leading to crime, alcoholism, drug-addiction, homelessness and gun-violence; hence also the increased public mass-shootings in the U.S where the Wild West mentality of violence, ruthless capitalism and idiocracy still reigns – the election of Trump with his anti-Muslim policies confirming this. This book offers an analysis on these matters, to improve the relationship between America and the International Community.< Less

Paperback: $23.90
Prints in 3-5 business days
During the times of Montesquieu ’The Spirit of the Laws' was very clear: The separation of powers, the ending of slavery and the preservation of civil liberties and the law. However, in the... More > Information Age the law has become obscured and elsusive. Especially regarding those two big words – ”Human Rights” – on which the entire weight of the world seems to rest, conventional law has reached its limits; because neither is it possible to enforce human rights on a global level, nor is there an international consensus on human rights; evidenced by the western-islamic cultural conflict. In order to resolve seemingly irreconcilable legal and political challenges in our global village, ’The Spirit of the Laws’ in today’s world must be rediscovered. However, to break new ground in Legal Philosophy, professionals must realise that spiritual intelligence is a key prerequisite; hence it is important to hone and train the fundamental elements of spiritual intelligence, which this book will assist you to do.< Less

Paperback: $19.50

Dr. O’Doherty offers suggestions how to overcome these challenges; to improve Oman's relationship with the International Community.< Less

Paperback: $9.90
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book advocates a global community of equity and equality; where politicians do not act in the interest of individual nations, but instead jointly work towards a global union of solidarity. This... More > book also explores to what extent the Universal Declaration of Human Rights covers the full ethical spectrum of our global community, and how human rights – especially children’s rights – can be enforced more effectively in our global community. Finding the elusive synergy between capitalism and socialism is another topic this volume explores, as over 20% of the global population live in extreme poverty and have no basic income; hence the massive forced migration by people in developing countries, leading to the 'brain drain' and many other global social-political calamities. Mark O’Doherty comes to the conclusion, that to overcome these global challenges, a Declaration of Global Solidarity is required; as an ethical, legal and social-economic guideline for our global community.< Less

China’s outdated Cold War policy is another focal point in this work, the Chinese government persisting that Militarism and Nuclear Weapons play a legitimate role in international politics; policies that are not only counterproductive to the global peace movement, but also a very considerable waste of money and effort, distorting national spending priorities and bleeding the Chinese taxpayer dry.

More > means to assess the credibility of political leaders, omniscient gurus, and other so-called experts. But even though empiric science goes a long way in psychology, it does not go all the way. As already Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world."

Especially evidence-based medicine has become a useful tool in the... More > wild jungle of cyberspace, giving us the means to assess the credibility of new age healers, omniscient gurus and other 'medical experts'. The best 'reality check' regarding CAM therapies might well be the family practice physician; but for that physicians must be able to synergise medical science and spiritual intelligence effectively.
