Speaking in Mallow on 11 June 1843, he told his followers, ‘The time is coming when we must be doing. You may have the alternative to live as slaves or die as

However, here there is no alternative form of activism, and no conflict of generations. Costa-Gavras noted, at the time of Z , the existence of other events to which the film might be seen to refer: there had been no lack of political assassinations in the recent past – along with Kennedy and Martin Luther King he did indeed evoke the Ben Barka affair (Costa-Gavras et al. 1969 : 8), but only to dismiss it

Attack cities only when there is no alternative.’ In ancient India the sacred writings sought to introduce some measure of humanitarianism. The Mahabharata 7 stated that ‘a king should never do such an injury to a foe as would rankle the latter’s heart’, and

It might be possible to endow social systems with partial constitutions enabling them better to co-​ordinate their respective operations.29 48 Critical theory and sociological theory This kind of de-​centralised planning would surely yield a model of differenti­ ation that is qualitatively distinct from the current ones promulgated through austerity, imposed as privatisation, and defended on the grounds that ‘there is no alternative’. These policies are patently not conducive to investment, growth, political stability, or efficient use of

In this account, eating is to gluttony as recreational drug use is to addiction, except that there is no alternative to eating and any attempt to eat less than a ‘rational’ quantity is also sinful. The requirements to eat enough and not to eat too much are similarly inexorable and at the same time as problematising appetite, she presents ‘prudent’ and ‘reasonable’ consumption as self-evident. The limits of Mary’s ‘share’ of pie are obvious to Mary as the line between debility and excess is obvious to the

They pledged themselves ‘to assert our right to take whatever action we consider best to preserve majority rule in Ulster, such action to include, if there is no alternative, the establishment of an independent British Ulster’. The Vanguard movement advocated a semi-independent Northern Ireland and had been formed just prior to the imposition of direct rule. However, it seems that the

benefit to DE and some slight medical risk. In A NHS Trust v DE the judge’s view of best interests accorded with the views of DE (as far as he was able to express them) and his family, however, there are occasions when a court rightly concludes that there is no alternative to treatment that the patient or family seeks to reject. A patient with learning disabilities and cancer of the womb initially agreed to a hysterectomy, but failed to (and then refused to) keep further appointments.
