The Institute for Advanced Strategic & Political Studies
(IASPS) is a think tank. Its focus is
the Redirection of Western societies by Science (Certainty) – the
OpenSociety-History (Uncertainty). This is the so-called visible Reciprocal. It
refers to the mechanical action of Certainty as effecting political and social
order as one of two possible orders in the Redirection, these being
“totalitarianism” in its active and passive phases, viz., the Open Society or
Democracy toward a World State, and the World State itself. This conception
and affiliated terminology reflects the research of R. J. Loewenberg.
See the Site for information about
it, in particular about A Preliminary.
This is the teaching’s main document, and will be released for publication this
year. The new, present site, is mostly about this
document and its conspectus. It continues, greatly extending and pressing the
points of a prior Institute publication. It is entitled “An Introduction to the
Peace Process: Part 1”. It is available on this Site.
What is the action of this policy basis in the Redirection?
In particular it is the projects of SANE.
SANE (Society of Americans for National Existence) is part and parcel of the
Institute’s extended consideration of the policy undertaking. SANE was founded
by David Yerushalmi in 2006.
Information about these projects, some of which are discussed at IASPS, can be
found at http://www.saneworks.us.
