    Resource Type: Article

  12. Race and Class: Downturn Undermines Black "Middle Class"
    Against The Current vol. 139

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Although the historic election of president Barack Obama has led to big cheers in the Black community and society in general, the reality for the vast majority of African Americans is growing uncertainty if not joblessness and poverty. Cities like Detroit, and the Rust Belt in the Midwest, are reeling under the blows of the recession and structural changes, including overseas outsourcing and shifting work to nonunion companies in “right to work” states.
  13. Race & Class: Obama & the Politics of Protest
    Against The Current vol. 146

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    Consider the following contradiction of modern African-American politics: We have the first African-American president (he checked “Black” on the new census form) offering hope to millions of working-class Blacks. Yet we see a drawdown of protest politics by longtime civil rights leaders, even though the “Great Recession” is causing the greatest harm Black communities have seen in decades.
  14. Race & Class: Obama Forgets Black Community
    Against The Current vol. 145

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    What I found most striking about President Barack Obama’s first “State of the Union” address before Congress on January 27 was what he didn’t say. In his 70-minute speech on the economy as the first president of the United States of African heritage, I expected that Obama would highlight the special impact of the recession on Blacks.
  15. Race and Class: Paris to New Orleans
    Against The Current vol. 120

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    It turns out that the city of lights and city of jazz have a lot in common. The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and militant explosions in the suburbs of Paris expose the underbelly of racism and class divisions.
  16. Race and Class: The Agenda of Pure Racism
    Against The Current vol. 141

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    There is a sinister aspect of the attacks by the far right against President Barack Obama that does not sit well with me, and with a vast majority of African Americans and other ethnic minorities, no matter our political or ideological point of view.
  17. Race and Class: The Wealth Gap
    Against The Current vol. 88

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    Politicians and government officials point to the historic low unemployment level in the Black community as signs of a strong economy and a future where whites and African Americans will finally have an opportunity for an equal share of the American dream. While it is true that long-term unemployment for the African-American population is in the single digits for the first time, the wealth gap between white and Black families continues to widen. According to government statistics Black households' wealth average one-twelfth that of white households.
  18. Race and Class: What About the Working Poor?
    Against The Current vol. 149

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    One striking feature of political debate in the country today is that — while every commentator, pundit and political observer talks about and focuses on the concerns of the super-rich and the middle class — few ever talk about the plight of the disadvantaged, those on food stamps and welfare and particularly the working poor.
  19. Race and Class: What About the Working Poor?

  20. Race and Class: What Counts in the Census?
    Against The Current vol. 86

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    I recently received two surveys in the mail. The first came from the U.S. Census Bureau, asking me a number of personal questions-some relevant, others intrusive. For the first time, however, the census offered me more options than the "normal" white, Black, Hispanic and other categories for race. I could now identify myself by checking as many ethnic groups as I liked. Progress? Maybe.
  21. Race and Class: What the Jena 6 Case Shows
    Against The Current vol. 131

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    Some 50,000 people converged on the small Louisiana town of Jena on September 20. The protest shook up not only the two-stoplight town but sent a loud siren across the country. The 85% white population had never seen anything like this — a Black-led protest against modern-day racism.
  22. Race and Politics
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1999
    THE MID-TERM NOVEMBER elections brought two surprises according to the pundits: the demise of Newt Gingrich and the likely survival of the Clinton presidency. A major reason for this striking turn of events had much to do with the Black voter turnout. It is a sidebar that was briefly commented on before and right after the elections but since has been buried by the impeachment hearings.
  23. Race and Politics: A Color-Blind America?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1998
    THROUGHOUT U.S. HISTORY “race” has been a major factor in all politics—beginning with the English occupation and the Westward drive of settlers to conquer and slaughter the native peoples. The justification: advancement of civilization. Racism is as American as apple pie, yet race itself is a political (economic) concept having little to do with biology or science.
  24. Race and Politics: Blacks in Corporate America
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1999
    A Concern of old-line civil rights leaders is how to remain relevant to the vast majority of African Americans. Since the victories won by the civil rights movement led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this has been an issue facing the NAACP, Operation PUSH, the SCLC, Urban League and every other group formed in that period and since.
  25. Race and Politics: Profiling and DWB
    Against The Current vol. 81

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1999
    It's happened to most Blacks at least once in our lifetime. Driving towards home or heading from work on the freeway a cop decides to pull you over for no reason. You wait in your car (you never get out first), hoping it's nothing. As you wait, the tension increases throughout your body. You keep your hands visible and crack no smile. Is it just a ticket? Or worse? (You wonder why African Americans have high blood pressure.)
  26. Race and Politics: Indonesia's Ethnic Conflicts
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1999
    IF YOU READ only the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, or watched CNN, your view of the fourth most populous country in the world, Indonesia with its 210 million people, would be of Muslims (ninety percent of the population) and Christians killing each other, as well as pogroms against ethnic Chinese, Dayaks attacking migrants and the people of the "Spice Islands" engaging in communal violence.
  27. Race and Racism in China
    Resource Type: Article
    Discrimination against the minority ethnic groups in contemporary China remains significant.
  28. Race and the Communist Manifesto

    First Published: 1990
    The rise of mass political opposition has put in question all the major issues of social change-relationship of race and class, challenges to apartheid in the economy and the nature of the state.
  32. Race and Class: Brown v. Board of Education 50 Years Later
    Against The Current vol. 111

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2004
    I found the headline of the May 17 Business Week article on the 50th anniversary of the famous Brown v. Board of Education landmark Supreme Court ruling, that "separate but equal" schools were unconstitutional, most revealing. "A Bittersweet Birthday," it said, declaring "Decades of progress on integration have been followed by disturbing slippage."

  35. Race and Class in Civil War Mississippi
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    The poor whites of Mississippi who fought the Confederacy alongside slaves did so because of working class values that they shared with slaves. The fact that poor whites may have believed some racist lies about blacks that constituted the dominant ideas of the day is not nearly as important or significant as the fact that their working class values led them to ally with slaves to fight the racist ruling class. Racism came from the upper class, and anti-racism came from the working class -- black and white.
  36. Race and class in the United States: J. Sakai and the politics of revolution
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    Doug Greene offers a critique of J. Sakai's 1989 work, Settlers: The Mythology of the White Proletariat.
  37. Race, class and police murder in America
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    In the aftermath of the mass shooting of police officers in Dallas, Texas on July 7, 2016, the American media and political establishment has sought to portray the police killings of unarmed people and widespread protests against police violence as proof of deepening and unbridgeable racial divisions in the United States.
  38. Race from the 20th to the 21st Century: Multiculturalism or Emancipation?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1999
    WHEN I WAS first invited here for a talk three years ago, I had no idea what Pullman looked like. For me, as well as for many students of American history, Pullman was associated with Pullman, Illinois, where the great railroad strike of 1894 against the Pullman Company began. In that strike of the American Railway Union, organized by the now legendary Eugene Debs, he and other union leaders were ultimately arrested and the strike in Chicago suppressed by 14,000 soldiers and police.
  39. Race, Gender, and Class Politics in the US Primaries
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    The US has some of the largest feminist organizations in the Western world. I should also add that it has the largest organization for the elderly, the AARP. In spite of this, the US is the country where African Americans, women, and the elderly have fewer political, civil, and social rights. African Americans, women, and the elderly have the least health benefits among their equivalents in other developed countries. The primary reason for this underdevelopment of human rights is the absence of powerful socialist forces and parties, rooted historically in the working class. This reality, however, is rarely mentioned in the US. It is presented as too "ideological" or antiquated.
  40. Race, Gender, and Work
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1991
  41. Race, Incarceration, and American Values 
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2008
    Glenn Loury argues that the extraordinary mass incarceration rate in the USA is not a response to rising crime rates. Instead, it is the product of a decision to become a more punitive society. He connects this policy to our history of racial oppression, showing that the punitive turn in American politics and culture emerged in the post-civil rights years and has today become the main vehicle for the reproduction of racial hierarchies.
  42. Race Obsession harms those it is meant to help
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Ethnic monitoring does not just produce misleading data. The process of classification often creates the very problems it is supposed to solve. Local authorities have used ethnic categories not only as a means of collecting data but also as a way of distributing political power - by promoting certain 'community leaders' - and of disbursing public funds through ethnically-based projects. Once the allocation of power, resources and opportunities becomes linked to membership of particular groups, then people inevitably begin to identify themselves in terms of those ethnicities, and only those ethnicities.
  43. Race, pluralism and the meaning of difference
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1998
    Far from establishing a critique of racial thinking, the politics of difference appropriates many of its themes and reproduces the very assumptions upon which racism has historically been based. Most critically, the embrace of difference has undermined the capacity to defend equality.
  44. Race, Politics and Christianity in America
    Against The Current vol. 140

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    11:00AM on Sunday morning is the most segregated hour in American life, and the implications of this stubborn fact have been known to unexpectedly erupt into our national political culture. In the invocation at the presidential inaugural, Pastor Rick Warren reminded us that we are not a nation united by race, or blood or religion — but he left our divisions on these grounds unarticulated, despite the role he has played in helping to generate them.

  47. Race, Religion and Rounding Up Africans in Israel
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    Israel has launched a wholesale roundup of African immigrants, whom members of the ruling parties call a "cancer" on the Jewish state. To circumvent court rulings against imprisonment without trial, the government has packed the refugees into a detention center in the desert. The aim is to convince the Africans "to give up all hope of a normal life in Israel" and go back where they came from.
  48. A Race Struggle, a Class Struggle, A Women's Struggle All at Once
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    In Los Angeles, the Labor/Community Strategy Center is carrying out a difficult Left experiment in the age of the omnipresent Right. The center is an explicitly anti-racist, anti-corporate, and anti-imperialist think-tank focusing on 'theory-driven practice'—the generation of mass campaigns of the working class and oppressed nationalities, in particular the black and Latino workers and communities. These campaigns are historically relevant on their own terms, but also have real relevance to any transition to an uncharted socialist future.

  50. Race v. Class? More Brilliant Bourgeois Bullshit from Ta-Nehesi Coates 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2017
    Coates is either flat-out lying or woefully ignorant when he argues that "the left" is disinterested in the big and significant problems of racial identity and racial justice. The longstanding legitimately Left progressive agenda addresses both race and class at one and the time. It does not accept Coates' false dichotomy between class and race.

  53. 'Rachel' screening in San Francisco shows a growing movement tired of being censored about Israel
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    A wide spectrum of individuals and organizations attempt to enforce the axiom: there shall be no public criticism of Israel. This platitude ironically goes hand in hand with the view that "Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East." Over the past several decades, self-appointed watch dogs of appropriate Israel discourse have spent hundreds of millions of dollars and poured out enormous doses of vitriol upon any individual or organization that dares to expresses even a drop of sympathy with the plight of Palestinians.

    First Published: 1977
  55. Racial Capitalism and the "Digital Divide"
    Against The Current vol. 84

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    The dialogue on race and nationality in the United States has always been conducted from the standpoint of the dominant racial group—whites. Not surprisingly, President Clinton's commission on race produced very little to overcome racism, something that would require facing up to the reality of centuries of white supremacy.
  56. Racial Liberalism: The Case of Interwar Detroit
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    The paradox at the heart of contemporary racial politics is what sociologists and political scientists call "colorblind racism:" How is it that the United States is a country where racism is supposed to be politically, socially, and morally unacceptable yet simultaneously where inequalities are quite neatly organized along racial lines?
  57. Racialism, art and the Academy Awards controversy
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    Should artwork be categorized and presumably appreciated according to whether it represents a male or female, black or white perspective? Many critics, influenced by the prevailing ideology, set up this basic standard: women gain more from art produced by women, Jews from work created by Jews, African-Americans from "African-American art," etc. In ideological terms, these critics, in their obsession with race, are spouting a conception of society and art identified historically with the extreme right.

    First Published: 2005
    I teach on a campus that prides itself on its racial diversity; Southern Illinois University is consistently ranked in the top ten among predominantly white campuses in graduation rates for African Americans. Yet the university has trouble confronting racial issues, and has no published policy on racial harassment.

  61. Racism and Responsibility
    Against The Current vol. 133

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Malik Miah writes in Against the Current 131, “[Orlando] Patterson, and others in Black academia and middle-class civil rights organizations, are right to point to internal problems within the Black community. But the ‘take personal responsibility’ critique targets only a secondary factor. It has little to do with addressing racist attitudes still prevalent among many whites, even as a large majority of whites and society oppose blatant racial discrimination.”

  63. Racism and Structural Solutions
    Against The Current vol. 135

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    When Barack Obama raised the specter of race in a March 18 speech that went far beyond what one would expect from the Democratic Party, some of us on the left were hopeful. Since the 1970s, race-speech in presidential campaigns has been increasingly buried in coded language like, “welfare moms,” “inner-city,” “street crime,” “states’ rights” and so on. We all welcomed a shift away from such discourse. By dealing a bit more squarely with the issue, the speech had the potential to ignite a national debate that could grapple with the “racial stalemate we’ve been stuck in for years,” as Obama put it.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    When the First Fleet sailed into Port Jackson on January 26, 1788, it carried more than the physical paraphernalia for European settlement. Along with tools, agricultural implements, chains, handcuffs, the cat-o'-nine-tails and gunpowder, the colonists brought with them an entrenched world-view.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    The lead poisoning crisis in Flint, Michigan is just the tip of a vast iceberg of lead contamination afflicting mainly urban black communities. A rigid 'race bar' on postwar suburban housing and mortgages left black families in inner cities, exposed to flaking lead paint in run down housing, leaded gasoline residues and lead pipework. Now is the time to correct this shocking historic injustice.

    African-Americans have been murdered by white mobs, vigilantes, and "law enforcement" from the time of slavery to, quite possibly, this morning.

From Christian militias in the Central African Republic reportedly eating their foes to Buddhist monks organizing anti-Muslim pogroms in Myanmar, there is cruelty aplenty in the world. Nor are religious believers alone in committing grotesque acts. We need to ask why political rage against the West takes such nihilistic forms today. And why has radical Islam become its principal vehicle?

    Resource Type: Article
    Radicals and Revolutionaries explores a significant yet neglected area in Canadian history-the experiences of the radical workers' movement and the Communist Party of Canada. Although a minority current on the Canadian political scene, at key points the radical movement posed a pointed challenge to the established order. Within that section of the socialist movement which openly identified itself as revolutionary, the CPC clearly predominated. It was instrumental in building the industrial union movement and played a key role in many of the major strikes of this century. In the social upheavals of the 1930s and 1940s, its influence extended far beyond its numbers.

    First Published: 2006
    Over and over, in the wake of 9/11, Muslims (and many non-Muslims) have proclaimed that all Muslims must not be judged on the basis of the few that are terrorists. Yes, it was Muslims that flew the airplanes into the World Trade towers, but most Muslims are not like that. That's very true. Each individual should be judged only on the basis of his or her own behaviour. So then why are all Danes being judged on the basis of one Danish cartoon? Why has an embassy been burned? Why have Danish products been taken off shelves?

If I gave you a pony, you would not only be furious that not everyone has a pony, but you would pick on the pony for not being radical enough until it wept big, sad, hot pony tears.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    Though I support BLM’s policy goals and shock-tactics, their lack of analysis of the forces behind the oppression of Black and other people seems to put them in an awkward place. Their use of shock tactics makes them too radical for the reformists, while their emphasis on piece-meal reforms and little else alienates the radicals. It puts them in a kind of activist nether-space that makes unity difficult.
  165. Rainbow Coalition or Class War?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2017
    Is there any reason to think that Redneck Revolt and the new Rainbow Coalition will turn out differently from the People's Party? American history shows that any political group, left, right or center, that fails to challenge in practice the white community and the institutions and patterns that maintain it will reinforce an identity that has led countless potentially progressive movements to ruin and whose capacity to do harm is by no means exhausted -- no matter how vigorously it denounces “racism” and capitalism and how many coalitions it enters with non-whites. Simply put, white people organized as whites are dangerous to the working class and to humanity, and white people with guns organized as whites are doubly so -- and this is true regardless of the intentions of the organizers.

    Ralph Nader, announcing his presidential candidacy in Washington, D.C. on February 21, 2000, said, "The struggle between the forces of democracy and plutocracy has ebbed and flowed throughout our history ... The earlier nineteenth-century democratic struggles by abolitionists against slavery, by farmers against large oppressive railroads and banks, and later by new trade unionists against the brutal workplace conditions of the early industrial and mining era helped mightily to make America and its middle class what it is today. They demanded that economic power subside or be shared."

    Our electoral dilemma today derives from a political realignment a hundred years ago, when a faction of populists joined in fusion with William Jennings Bryan and the “Free Silver” Democratic Party. After 1896 the two major parties evolved into what they have remained, electoral machines organized from the top down, from elites to ward heelers and courthouse gangs, as vote-catching operations for factions of big business.

    Ralph Nader has a complex relationship with the historical currents of change before World War I (populism, socialism and progressivism), but it may be his relationship to the Communism of the mid-twentieth century that has shaped his view of reform. Nader readily accepted the prevailing view that the Soviet regime exemplified the definition of socialism, that is, a concentration of bureaucratic power based on government ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Because of the flimsy comprehension of science and evolution of most writers in the mass media, those who venture to write about evolution feel constrained to present "alternative" views. But "alternative" views are not necessarily credible or true. The cliimate change deniers' arguments are no less articles of faith than those of the creationists. In the case of the former, the faith is not in a god but in the free market and capitalism. Almost without exception, those who are in staunch denial are those connected to, involved in or supportive of the traditional capitalist model of economic growth, and by implication opposed to anything that might constrain this model.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    Many who have not read Marx have heard that he is “unreadable,” but in this article Humphery McQueen celebrates the colour and humour of Marx’s writing, the use of metaphor, paradox, pun, irony, classical allusion and all the devices of the writer’s art. True, there are passages! the endless manipulation of prices and quantities of coats and cloth in Capital which often add little to the point already made, the obsessive, almost paranoiac bombast of works like Herr Vogt, but some of his prose ranks with the best of its kind, and should be enjoyed. It seems that Marx used these literary devices to achieve a depth of analysis which the normal “scientific” mode of exposition could never achieve.

That’s because $2.50 does not reflect the genuine cost of production. Every hamburger price tag should include a calculation of animal suffering, human health costs, economic and ecological subsidies.

    The real failure of multiculturalism is its failure to understand what is valuable about cultural diversity. There is nothing good in itself about diversity. It is important because it allows us to compare and contrast different values, beliefs and lifestyles, make judgements upon them, and decide which are better and which worse. It is important, in other words, because it allows us to engage in political dialogue and debate that can help create more universal values and beliefs. But it is precisely such dialogue and debate, and the making of such judgements, that multiculturalism attempts to suppress in the name of 'tolerance' and 'respect'.

Adding to the interest is the Chinese government's claim that this success demonstrates both the workability and superiority of "market socialism."

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    The trouble with much of the discussion of terrorism today is that it misses a fundamental point about contemporary terror: its disconnect from social movements and political goals. In the past, an organisation such as the IRA was defined by its political aims. Its members were carefully selected and their activities tightly controlled. However misguided we might think its actions, there was a close relationship between the aims of the organization and the actions of its members. None of this is true when it comes to contemporary terrorism. An act of terror is rarely controlled by an organisation or related to a political demand. That is why it is so difficult to discern the political or religious motivations

  395. Redefining Revolution
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1963   Published: 1974
    Modern society certainly remains profoundly divided. It constantly functions against the immense majority of working people. In everyday life the exploited defend themselves against exploitation by part of every single one of their everyday gestures. The present crisis of humanity, it is true, will only be solved by a socialist revolution. But these ideas risk remaining empty abstractions, pretexts for sermons or for a blind, spasmodic activism if one doesn't try to understand the new ways in which the division of society assumes concrete form today, how modern capitalism functions, the new forms taken today by the working class struggle against the ruling classes and their system, and unless one seriously tries to understand what — under these conditions — a new revolutionary activity integrated to the real struggle of people in society might mean and how it could be linked to a coherent and lucid understanding of the world. To achieve this what is needed is nothing less than a radical theoretical and practical renewal.

Chomsky reveals the flawed-nature of America's institutions, observing that if the outcome of this trial were to be taken as a guide of conduct, citizens would have to avoid all public acts undertaken jointly with others who share his views in order to avoid risk of prosecution.

    Against The Current vol. 143

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    The Nobel peace price notwithstanding, Barack Obama’s presidency, contrary to the hopes of many, has not produced a big political space for the left, let alone “a seat at the table.” Most visibly, it has been the right wing that succeeded in seizing the initiative, in some truly grotesque ways that have thrown a spotlight on the deep paranoia — and straight-up old-style white racism — that persists in this society, and on the ways it can be opportunistically pandered to and manipulated. The tea-party mob phenomenon, however, cannot be dismissed as merely a freak show created by rightwing talk media and massive covert corporate funding, although that is certainly part of the story.

  439. Re-Framing Dissent As Criminal Subversion
    Paradigm Shift and Political Repression

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1992
    When our national security interests are perceived as threatened, secrecy becomes sacred, and the ends justify the means. Since the end of World War II, the techniques of political repression recur, banal and predictive, like the musical theme that signals stalking in a grade-B thriller. Those organizations and individuals targetted for repression are portrayed as enemies of democracy; those investigating and attacking then assume the mantle of democracy's guardians. Because of the covert nature of campaigns and the enormous difference in resources between government agencies and dissident/reform movements, it is often impossible to document or prove the existence of an organized campaign of political repression in its earlier stages. In case after case, however, later investigation has revealed illegal government surveillance, harassment and public opinon manipulation, as well as media complicity.

    In the September-October, 1999 issue of Against the Current (#82), Sam Farber's review of Daniel Singer's book Whose Millennium? deserves a few comments. Like Farber, Singer and numerous other revolutionaries, I also reject the Leninist concept of the "vanguard party." As you probably know, it was not Lenin who authored the concept that working people can attain only trade union consciousness as a result of their own practical activity, the material basis of the vanguard concept as defined in What Is To Be Done?

Woodcock however does not discuss anarchism as such but the path that his own political interests have taken: from international anarchist to Canadian patriot. Two recurrent themes in the book are his antipathy to Marxism and his ambivalent attitude toward Canadian nationalism. Woodcock believes that the "Left" is dead and that modern anarchists have to shed outdated concepts of the past.

Centralism is the organisational principle of the bourgeois-capitalist age. With it the bourgeois state and the capitalist economy can be built up. Not however the proletarian state and the socialist economy. They demand the council system. For the KAPD - contrary to Moscow - the revolution is no party matter, the party no authoritarian organisation from the top down, the leader no military chief, the masses no army condemned to blind obedience, the dictatorship no despotism of a ruling clique; communism no springboard for the rise of a new Soviet bourgeoisie.

    When an oppressive regime blocks Internet access during social unrest, violence usually follows.

    First Published: 2017
    "The left" of contemporary 2017 America is deeply divided and fractured, and it is a shadow of its former self, considering the decline of organized labor, and the disappearance of left-public intellectuals in higher education. In this environment, what remains of "the left" desperately needs to reach out to the masses of Americans, including liberals, moderates, and political independents, and to pull them further to the left, if there is to be any chance of meaningful change. And berating anyone who is not perceived to be on the far left, rather than patiently working to bring these individuals into a broader left movement, is a recipe for irrelevance.

    David Finkel's comments (ATC 122) about my book Is Iraq Another Vietnam?, and about my position against immediately withdrawing the US military from Iraq, were well-informed and fair. So were the judgments of Gilbert Achcar in his interview with Susan Weissman, though his focus was on the withdrawal issue in general and not on my essay specifically. Likewise, Michael Schwartz's current ATC response reflects an impressive familiarity with Iraq and the Middle East, and his critique of my analysis is well-taken.

    A response to Norman Finkelstein's attack on the movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel. Tilley says that Finkelstein's insistence that the movement has to adjust itself to mainstream public opinion is bizarre: "Since when do human rights campaigns adjust their arguments to please mainstream opinion? Changing mainstream opinion is their very task. If activists took mainstream opinion as the proper guide to moral action, we would never have had the anti-slavery abolition movement, or the women’s suffrage movement, and apartheid would flourish in South Africa to this day. Indeed, we wouldn’t have most human rights campaigns. The toughest ones, which are often the greatest ones, must often start small and grow slowly."

By the 1930s, the U.S. labour movement was strong enough to have work for commercial purposes prohibited in prisons.

    It is only because Canada's electoral system is profoundly undemocratic that it was possible for the Mulroney Tories to form a majority government with only 43 per cent of the votes. They then used that majority to force through the free trade deal even though a majority of the electorate had voted against it.
  766. Review: International Socialist Review on "Contemporary Anarchism"
    Resource Type: Article
    The word "anarchism" is a rather vague word that covers such a wide variety of political views and approaches it is often hard to see how they have anything in common. This means it is also probably not very productive to produce "critiques" of anarchism that lump the many different viewpoints together.
  767. Review: Kate Evans, Red Rosa: A Graphic Biography of Rosa Luxemburg (2015)
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    Red Rosa does not aspire to be an authoritative biography but, perhaps as a result, it is a more compelling book. What's compelling about it? The graphics have a lot to do with it; it's an extended comic strip (although the author might take offense with that characterization). The events, both intimate and very public, of Luxemburg’s life and the words and deeds of her political activity are portrayed in vivid graphics. When reading the book, it's impossible to feel detached from them. At the same time, those events, words and deeds are presented seriously, without trivialization. This is no "Rosa Luxemburg for Dummies."

    There is no such suprahistorical abstraction as racism. In each historical period it was something different. It was one thing during slavery, another during Reconstruction, and quite something else today. To further insist that "Whatever their political persuasion," "All Whites" are "part of the collective white America" so that the U.S. has "180 million racists" is to blur the class line which cuts across the race divisions as well as to muffle the philosophy of total freedom which has created a second America.

The revolution is the political and economic affair of the totality of the proletarian class. Only the proletariat as a class can lead the revolution to victory.

    The movement Nuit debout -- 'night on our feet' or 'stand up night!' -- is a potent reminder of the existence of an indefatigable global struggle against the neoliberal credo and all of its devastating consequences. Although it has deep roots, like all sociopolitical movements, it has come into its own since the prolongation of a March 31st, 2016 general strike (grève générale) and mass protest against French labor reforms, which aim at further consolidating class power and rendering the status of the labor force even more precarious. It quickly mutated like so many other recent movements from a circumscribed protest into an extended and rapidly spreading occupation.

The Labour Party describes this type of organization as an essential feature of British democracy in practice. The Bolsheviks describe it as a "democratic centralism". Let us forget the names and look below the surface. In both cases we find the complete domination of the party in all matters of organization and policy by a fairly small group of professional "leaders".

    Minneapolis Teamster strikes overlapped with a similarly hard-fought 83-day strike by West Coast longshoremen and maritime unions, a battle that culminated in a four-day general strike in San Francisco. Both strikes were part of a wave of labour struggle that swept the country as the working class, shaking off the paralysis that had accompanied the onset of the Great Depression in 1929, began to fight. What distinguished these two strikes, along with one by auto parts workers in Toledo, from other 1934 labor battles is that they won big, establishing union representation for masses of previously unorganized workers and opening the road to the upsurge later in the decade that forged the industrial unions of the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO). Key to the victory of all three strikes was the leadership provided by "reds" -- labour militants who considered themselves socialist or communist.

    Minneapolis Teamster strikes overlapped with a similarly hard-fought 83-day strike by West Coast longshoremen and maritime unions, a battle that culminated in a four-day general strike in San Francisco. Both strikes were part of a wave of labour struggle that swept the country as the working class, shaking off the paralysis that had accompanied the onset of the Great Depression in 1929, began to fight. What distinguished these two strikes, along with one by auto parts workers in Toledo, from other 1934 labor battles is that they won big.

    The 2016 Republican presidential primary was rigged. It wasn't rigged by the Republicans, the Democrats, Russians, space aliens, or voters. It was rigged by the owners of television networks who believed that giving one candidate far more coverage than others was good for their ratings. The CEO of CBS Leslie Moonves said of this decision: "It may not be good for America, but it’s damn good for CBS." Justifying that choice based on polling gets the chronology backwards, ignores Moonves' actual motivation, and avoids the problem, which is that there ought to be fair coverage for all qualified candidates (and a democratic way to determine who is qualified).

This elite established and perpetuated itself on the backs of impoverished wage labourers. He criticizes the waste of water for swimming pools, casino fountains, and ill-suited crops like alfalfa, the depletion of aquifers, and the salinization of rivers. Worster points out the vengeance of nature in the form of the sedimentation and collapse of dozens of dams.

That is, in addition to manifesting other aspects of domination, property is racist.

    Israel’s most draconian laws may have been passed by the current right-wing government, but the stage was set long ago by the Israeli Left. With a majority of 65 votes, the Knesset approved last week the extension of an order to prevent family reunification in Israel. Of Palestinian families, of course. Jews are welcome to continue and reunify as much as they please.

    Looking back on my own experience in Palestine I can see how today's horror grew from small beginnings. Zionism, Jewish separateness and the belief in a Jewish homeland, have developed into state violence. My parents were pioneering Zionists, leaving Russia for Palestine in 1902 to join a total Zionist population of a few thousand. I grew up a Zionist, but Zionism didn't have the ugly face we see today. However, there was always a fundamental crack between the Zionists and the Arabs. This same crack split Zionists from ordinary people in their countries of origin.

    First Published: 2016
    Today is the 97th anniversary of the assassination of Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, two of the leading exponents of revolutionary socialism in Germany in the early 20th century. Both were prominent figures in the German Social Democratic Party (SPD) up to the First World War and, alienated by the reformist and pro-war politics of the SPD, founders of the Spartacus League in 1916. Both were killed by right-wing Freikorps death squads -- which had support from the Social Democratic government -- on January 15, 1919. The following is an excerpt from Gerald Friedman's Reigniting the Labor Movement (Routledge, 2007). Friedman describes Rosa Luxemburg's revolutionary politics and her understanding of the role of the mass strike -- not as the means for a decisive “one hit” victory for the working class, but as part of what Friedman terms a "long-term process of consciousness-building through participation in class struggle."

    The Russian revolution of 1905 sparked strikes and protests all over Central Europe. In Germany the workers took an active interest in the Russian situation and demanded the presence of the SPD’s (Social Democratic Party) inspiring speaker, Rosa Luxemburg. For Luxemburg, the upsurge in strikes symbolized the revolutionary spirit of the working class. She became increasingly disillusioned and frustrated, however, with the SPD’s lack of support and the Trade Unions’ attempts to prevent strikes.

    From a Luxemburgian perspective post-war capitalism developed in two phases, each of which was possible because class-struggles and international conflicts had opened non-capitalist environments for capitalist penetration. The first phase gave rise to consumer capitalism and neo-colonialism; the second was characterized by accumulation by dispossession that rolled back welfare states in the North and developmental states in the South, while also integrating formerly state-socialist countries, notably China, into the capitalist world-system.

    Chapter 9 of Book 3 of Ante Ciliga's The Russian Enigma originally published as In The Land of The Great Lie. The book details Ciliga's time spent in Soviet Prisons and 'isolaters' following his arrest for belonging to the Trotskyist Opposition, and provides a wealth of important documentary information concerning the miserable conditions in which the working class were reduced to living in, the extent of the 'criminalisation' of large swathes of the population, and the various forms in which resistance appeared.

    One of my core political beliefs is that there would still be a Soviet Union if they'd been smart enough to have two communist parties that agreed on everything except abortion.
    Obviously that's a joke about the U.S., where we have two capitalist parties that largely agree on everything.
  1162. The Russian Revolution 
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1918   Published: 1961
    The basic lesson of every great revolution, the law of its being, decrees: either the revolution must advance at a rapid, stormy, resolute tempo, break down all barriers with an iron hand and place its goals ever farther ahead, or it is quite soon thrown backward behind its feeble point of departure and suppressed by counter-revolution. To stand still, to mark time on one spot, to be contented with the first goal it happens to reach, is never possible in revolution. And he who tries to apply the home-made wisdom derived from parliamentary battles between frogs and mice to the field of revolutionary tactics only shows thereby that the very psychology and laws of existence of revolution are alien to him.

    The Bolshevik Revolution of October 1917 was the greatest victory for the world's working people and for all of the oppressed. The spark for the revolutionary upsurge was a mass outpouring of women in Petrograd on International Women’s Day (IWD), March 8 (February 23 by the old Julian calendar). While in recent years bourgeois feminists have usurped IWD, in fact it is a workers' celebration that originated in 1908 among female needle trades workers in Manhattan.

    The relationship between “Leninism” and Stalinism has been a highly controversial topic between the political left and right as well as within the left itself. The “totalitarian” school of thought, historically associated with the political right and with many liberals, has held that there are no qualitative differences between the two regimes and that the main source of Stalinism was the Bolshevik ideology and politics that existed before the October Revolution.

    The October Revolution of 1917 in Russia was the most influential political event of the 20th century. But since history is written by the victors, it is not well known that October was the opening shot of a vast and powerful challenge to capitalism that swept the industrial world and had strong echoes in colonial countries. Between 1918 and 1921 union membership and days lost in strikes everywhere reached new heights, while the ranks of the revolutionary wing of the socialist movement swelled.

    THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION is dead. The last of its veterans and contemporaries are gone, and the working class of today has little or no connection to the revolutionary movements of the inter-war generation that were inspired by the Russian Revolution. Revolutionary leftists may still debate the "Russian Question," but the workers and students of the present have little idea what the quarrels are about.

    The near-genocidal war that Russia's Putin-Yeltsin government is waging in Chechnya is cynical on many counts. Some might compare it to U.S. efforts to end the “Vietnam syndrome” by engaging in small wars certain of victory without U.S. casualties.

    THE ECONOMIC CRISIS in Russia is a trigger for the world-wide decline in stock markets and currencies rather than its cause. Russia has been in a sharp economic crisis for a decade, since Gorbachev passed the Law on the State Enterprise, which first introduced market disciplines to the USSR. On the other side, the world is in a supply glut with too many products and not enough buyers. The Russian debt default looks like the first of a number to come.

And yet, Washington's hope is that Putin will not only prevent the regime's collapse and consolidate it, but also help in reaching some kind of political settlement of the conflict. For the time being this is more wishful thinking than anything else.

    Not only are censorship and suppression fatal to the purpose of the university, they undermine the foundation of democratic society. When individual rights to freedom of expression are diminished or taken away for an allegedly good cause, they are necessarily invested in some higher authority that is given the right to determine what is acceptable. The result is censorship from above – ultimately the state – with the likelihood that the champions of that censorship today are its vulnerable targets tomorrow.
