Out of Bounds and Out of Control

Out of Bounds, Out of Control measures the enforcement activities of the Environmental Protection Agency against that standard and finds them disturbingly deficient. Environmental regulation is so detailed and obscure that no one can identify all relevant mandates, let alone ensure compliance. EPA maintains broad discretion to define legal violations and resists any checks. Discretion is exercised retroactively or arbitrarily. People fear to dispute the agency's interpretation of its power or express doubts about the absolute primacy of its mission lest they be made into examples. The concept of "intent" has become so attenuated that it provides no limitation on prosecution. The EPA also blurs the lines separating governmental powers. Using its open-ended authority to "interpret" vague statutes, it makes the laws that define its own powers, then investigates, prosecutes, adjudicates, and penalizes. Judicial checks are sporadic. This panoply of authority breeds regulatory zealotry and a disregard for the rights of the regulated. The book, however, is more than a sobering look at a legal theory. In story after story specific regulatory abuses are examined, many of which are positively Kafkaesque. Moreover, many of the problems documented in the book are pandemic across the government. The ultimate lesson to be drawn is that deep structural reform is needed to restore the rule of law to administrative agencies.

Die Determiniertheit der psychischen Struktur durch die Gesellschaft.

Zur Methode und Aufgabe einer Analytischen Sozialpsychologie

Dieser bereits 1937 geschriebene, aber bis 1992 verschollene Aufsatz kann als der für die Theorieentwicklung Fromms wichtigste Beitrag gelten. Nirgends sonst im Werk von Fromm lässt sich so gut nachvollziehen, wie Fromm dazu kam, die Psychoanalyse auf ein anderes theoretisches Fundament zu stellen und an die Stelle des triebtheoretischen ein bezogenheitstheoretisches Paradigma zu setzen. Hier zeigt er detailliert auf, wie sich die Erfordernisse des Wirtschaftens und des sozialen Zusammenlebens in den psychischen Strebungen der betreffenden Menschen widerspiegeln. Für jeden, der Fromms sozial-psychoanalytischen Ansatz kennen lernen will, ist dieser frühe Aufsatz ein „Muss“. Aus dem Inhalt • Die Determiniertheit der psychischen Struktur durch die Gesellschaft • Der gesellschaftlich erzeugte Charakter • Die gesellschaftliche Funktion des sozial typischen Charakters • Die Neuformulierung der Triebtheorie auf Grund eines anderen Menschenbildes • Der sozial typische Charakter als Ausdruck der gesellschaftlich geprägten psychischen Struktur des Einzelnen
