    Climate change is the main subject of the day, and rightly so. What do Marxists have to say that may be helpful in understanding it and hopefully (and it’s only a possibility) stopping it?…or…What is the relation between climate change and class struggle?

  2. Drawing the Dystopia: Eli Valley at Stanford

    On May 10, 2019, Eli Valley explored the personal and political roots of his satirical art at Stanford University with Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voice for Peace. Exploring a century of popular art — from the tumultuous mayhem of MAD comics to the lacerating imagery of early Zionism — Eli gave a searing tour through Jewish satire, the weaponization of antisemitism, the battles over Jewish authenticity, and the meaning of Jewish pride. The presentation was an urgent call to moral responsibility in an age of resurgent white supremacism in America and throughout the world.

    By both its supporters and detractors, neoliberalism is usually considered an economic policy agenda. Neoliberalism’s Demons argues that it is much more than that: a complete worldview, neoliberalism presents the competitive marketplace as the model for true human flourishing. And it has enjoyed great success: from the struggle for "global competitiveness" on the world stage down to our individual practices of self-branding and social networking, neoliberalism has transformed every aspect of our shared social life. The book explores the sources of neoliberalism’s remarkable success and the roots of its current decline. Neoliberalism’s appeal is its promise of freedom in the form of unfettered free choice. But that freedom is a trap: we have just enough freedom to be accountable for our failings, but not enough to create genuine change. If we choose rightly, we ratify our own exploitation. And if we choose wrongly, we are consigned to the outer darkness—and then demonized as the cause of social ills. By tracing the political and theological roots of the neoliberal concept of freedom, Adam Kotsko offers a fresh perspective, one that emphasizes the dynamics of race, gender, and sexuality. More than that, he accounts for the rise of …
