Abstract:

This paper is an examination of select sociocultural and metaphysical dynamics of roots and dub reggae, and the genres' symbiotic development in the 1970s. The discussion is comprised of a historically contextualized interpretive analysis and discussion of the music as politically progressive discourse and art, and is in this specific regard augmented by the insights of original interviews of some of reggae's most seminal creators and innovators. The paper is intended to establish the foundation upon which the author may move toward a more complex theorization of the past century's authentic "rebel music" from a philosophically informed perspective that considers its unique and manifold aesthetic elements vis-a-vis the globally conscious messages which seek to inform the present human condition.

Normal Democracy: Theory and Prediction Abstract Current democratic theorizing is based either on the classical model of democracy which assumes that self-rule and political equality are achievable or on the procedural democracy of the modern nation state which accepts that the presence of political and civil liberties is a fundamental right. The weakness of the former model lies in its assumption that self-rule and political equality are possible in modern nation states whereas the latter fails to account for
