Air-to-surface missile

An air-to-surface missile or air-to-ground missile is a missile designed to be launched from military aircraft at targets on land or sea. There are unpowered guided glide bombs not considered missiles; the two most common propulsion systems for air-to-surface missiles are rocket motors with shorter range, slower, longer-range jet engines. Some Soviet-designed air-to-surface missiles are powered by ramjets, giving them both long range and high speed. Guidance for air-to-surface missiles is via laser guidance, infrared guidance, optical guidance or via satellite guidance signals; the type of guidance depends on the type of target. Ships, for example, may be detected via passive radar or active radar homing, less effective against multiple, fast-moving land targets. There is some cross-over between surface-to-surface missiles. For example, there was an air-launched version of the Tomahawk missile, superseded by the AGM-86 ALCM. Other missiles used in both roles include the AGM-84 Harpoon anti-ship missiles.

Many air-to-surface missiles can be used against both ships and land targets, although some must be modified to perform a different role. A major advantage of air-to-surface missiles for ground attack by aircraft is the standoff distance they provide: missiles can be launched from a distance without coming within range of the target's air defences. Most air-to-surface missiles are fire-and-forget from a standoff distance, allowing the attacker to withdraw without approaching further after launch; some missiles have long enough range to be launched over the horizon, finding the target autonomously. Sub-categories of air-to-surface missiles include: air-launched anti-tank guided missiles air-launched cruise missiles air-launched anti-ship missiles anti-radiation missilesTypically, the higher and faster the launching aircraft is flying, the longer the reach of a particular missile is. For long-range missiles this difference can be small, but short-range missiles have a much longer range when launched at altitude.

There have been examples of air-launched ballistic missiles. Sometimes air-to-surface missiles are divided into the categories of strategic. Missiles with chemical explosive or small nuclear warheads are classed as tactical, large nuclear warheads as strategic.

William Tuckwell

William Tuckwell, who liked to be known as the "radical parson", was an English Victorian clergyman well-known on political platforms for his experiments in allotments, his advocacy of land nationalisation, his enthusiasm for Christian socialism. He was an advocate of teaching science in the schools, he was born on 27 November 1829. From 1857 to 1864 he was headmaster of New College School. In 1864 the Warden of New College, nominated him as headmaster of Taunton Grammar School known as Taunton College School, it was recorded that vitality" increased the size and quality of the school. He died on 1 February 1919, he is best remembered as the author of Reminiscences of Oxford, which records the Oxford of the 1830s, but is somewhat misleading. Owen Chadwick records that he liked to "pretend to be much older than he was.... What Tuckwell knew about were the fifties and sixties, his portrait of Tractarian leaders is drawn from experiences in that time. Tuckwell became active at the time of the great reform bill.

His work among the poor had led him to enquire much about their lives. With much comparison, my conclusions were built up. I found that twentyone shillings in the country, thirty shillings in the town, was the smallest weekly sum on which a worker with wife and four young children could be maintained in decency and comfort; the millions who were enchained by such conditions were further found to be not only underpaid but overworked, their hours of labour ranging from ten to seventeen hours a day. And it appeared that these unfortunates, thus underpaid and overworked, were in many places-rural places more but not there alone-serfs at the mercy of their employers. Engaged on weekly tenure, dismissal hung over their heads. If anyone amongst them should attend a radical meeting, vote for a radical candidate, remonstrate against the foul surroundings of his home, omit to touch his hat to squire or to parson, he might be told - and to my knowledge was told - that his services were no longer required.

And to be thus discharged was in every case to be expatriated. Branded with the stigma of insubordination, he would find no employer in the neighbourhood to take him in. Underpay, slavery-behold the inheritance of those millions whom parsons spoke of on week-days as "the masses," addressed as "dearly beloved brethren" on the Sundays. Over the next ten years he delivered more than a thousand speeches in support of Christian socialism and in favour of a redistribution of wealth and land. William Tuckwell, A. W.

The Mass Psychology of Fascism

The Mass Psychology of Fascism is a 1933 book by the psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich, in which the author explores how fascists come into power, explains their rise as a symptom of sexual repression. Reich—originally from Galicia in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and practicing psychoanalysis and psychiatry in Vienna—joined the Social Democratic Party of Austria in 1928, he joined the Communist Party of Germany upon moving his psychoanalytic practice to Berlin in 1930. However, The Mass Psychology of Fascism was seen as being so critical of the Communist regime in the Soviet Union that Reich was considered to be a liability to the KPD and was kicked out of the party upon the book's publication in 1933; the question at the heart of Reich's book was this: why did the masses turn to authoritarianism though it is against their interests? In 1933, Reich set out to analyze "the economic and ideological structure of German society between 1928 and 1933" in this book; the healthy alternative, he proposes, is a form of "Workers Democracy", whereby those who'do' the actual work make the decisions as to what and why.

Reich argued that the reason why German Fascism was chosen over Communism was that of increased sexual repression in Germany - as opposed to the somewhat more liberal Russia. As children, members of the proletariat learned from their parents to suppress nearly all sexual desire and - instead - expend the repressed energy into authoritarian idealism. Hence, in adults, any rebellious and sexual impulses experienced would cause fundamental anxiety and - therefore, instead - social control is used to reduce anxiety. Fear of revolt, as well as fear of sexuality, were thus "anchored" in the'character structure' of the masses; this influenced the irrationality of the'people' and allowed'populistic' ideology to flourish, Reich argued: Suppression of the natural sexuality in the child of its genital sexuality, makes the child apprehensive, obedient, afraid of authority and adjusted in the authoritarian sense. In brief, the goal of sexual suppression is that of producing an individual, adjusted to the authoritarian order and who will submit to it in spite of all misery and degradation.

The child has to submit to the structure of the authoritarian miniature state, the family, which process makes it capable of subordination to the general authoritarian system. The formation of the authoritarian structure takes place through the anchoring of sexual inhibition and anxiety. Reich noted that the symbolism of the swastika, evoking the fantasy of the primal scene, showed in spectacular fashion how Nazism systematically manipulated the collective unconscious. A repressive family, a baneful religion, a sadistic educational system, the terrorism of the party, fear of economic manipulation, fear of racial contamination, permitted violence against minorities all operated in and through individuals' unconscious psychology of emotions, traumatic experiences, libidinal economies, so on, Nazi political ideology and practice exacerbated and exploited these tendencies. For Reich, fighting Fascism meant first of all studying it scientifically, to say, using the methods of psychoanalysis, he believed that reason alone would be able to check the forces of irrationality and loosen the grip of mysticism and is capable of playing its own part in developing original modes of political action, building on a deep respect for life, promoting a harmonious channelling of libido and orgastic potency.

Reich proposed "work democracy", a self-managing form of social organization that would preserve the individual's freedom, independence and encourage his/her responsibility and society would thus base itself on these principles: Love and knowledge are the well-springs of our life. They should govern it; as a result of his radical views, Reich had been kicked out of the German Communist Party. He had had to flee from Germany after the take-over of National Socialism with the Reichstag Fire; the book - along with many others banned by the Nazis when they came to power - and these were publicly burnt in the Nazi book burnings. Reich hurriedly left Germany. Reich was subsequently expelled from the International Psychoanalytical Association in 1934 for his political militancy and his views on sexuality; this book - and all of Reich's published books - were ordered to be burned on the request of the Food and Drug Administration by a judge in Maine, United States in 1954. Chapter V contains the famous statement that the family is the first cell of the fascist society: From the standpoint of social development, the family cannot be considered the basis of the authoritarian state, only as one of the most important institutions which support it.

It is, its central reactionary germ cell, the most important place of reproduction of the reactionary and conservative individual. Being itself caused by the authoritarian system, the family becomes the most important institution for its conservation. In this connection, the findings of Morgan and of Engels are still correct. Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari reprised Reich arguments in their joint work Anti-Oedipu
