  • Beat the Rich
    • Abstract: Howard Schultz and Ken griffin have been giving billionaires a bad name. Schultz, who became a celebrity selling overpriced coffees gentrified with Italian labels, quickly morphed into an arrogant fool who thinks his riches somehow qualify him to be president. The lesser-known griffin recently plowed $238 million of his hedge-fund earnings into a future penthouse overlooking Central Park that will be the most expensive home in U.S. history. The republican donor is also having a mansion built in Palm Beach, Florida, that will cost at least $10 million more.Not so long ago, many Americans would have reacted to these two characters with a mix of awe and envy. But since the financial collapse a decade ago, the notion ... Read More

  • Already Great
    • Abstract: "In the first season, the Parks and Rec writers had played the idea of a Leslie Knope presidency for laughs; six years later, it had turned into a prophecy." Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope (NBC)Two days after the 2016 election, an article from Leslie Knope went viral. Like many of the essays that took over Blue America's collective social media feed in the aftermath of Donald Trump's victory, the piece asked readers to join what would soon be called the Resistance. "I reject out of hand the notion that we have thrown up our hands and succumbed to racism, xenophobia, misogyny, and crypto-fascism," she declared. "Today, and tomorrow, and every day until the next election, I reject and fight that story."Except "Leslie ... Read More

  • What Amos Oz Couldn't See
    • Abstract: Amos Oz poses at the Basilica of Maxentius during the 2005 International Festival in Rome. He died in December 2018 as one of Israel's most celebrated writers. (Marilla Sicilia/Archivio Marilla Sicilia/Mondadori Portfolio)Amos Oz wrote that as a child he would imagine his own funeral. It would be a state funeral, with eulogies by politicians, "marble statues and songs of praise in my memory," he recalled in his 2002 memoir, A Tale of Love and Darkness. He was not far off the mark. Oz died in late December 2018 at the age of seventy-nine as one of Israel's most celebrated writers—perhaps its last "national" writer, for no other contemporary Israeli author has as insistently, or successfully, grafted their own ...

  • The Road to Renewal: Introduction
    • Abstract: While President Trump claims to be responsible for an "unprecedented economic boom," a wave of labor militancy across the country suggests that America's workers are not sharing in the supposed prosperity. The past year witnessed more people participating in work stoppages than at any time in the last thirty years, teacher strikes in ten states, the continuation of pioneering Fight for $15 campaigns, a nationwide walkout by Google employees, campaigns for economic justice under the banner of Black Lives Matter and the women's marches, Amazon run out of New York in large part due to its anti-union practices, and unprecedented multistate strikes by hotel workers against Marriott.Forty years of attacks by private ...

  • How to Win
    • Abstract: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times," wrote Charles Dickens of revolutionary France. "It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair." Too melodramatic for our twenty-first-century taste, perhaps, but not without a kernel of truth when applied to the contemporary labor movement this political season.On the one hand, something is stirring in the land. The red-state teacher strikes, the Democratic sweep in the 2018 midterms, the Los Angeles teachers' historic victory in early January, and the organizing success unions have enjoyed among millennial wordsmiths in media, both dead tree and on the web, testify to the spread of the union idea in even the most unexpected venues. In 2018 more ... Read More

  • A Seat at the Table: Sectoral Bargaining for the Common Good
    • Abstract: There is growing consensus among left-leaning union leaders, scholars, and public policy experts that fundamental labor law reform is necessary, not only to fix a broken labor and employment regime but also to address the nation's staggering economic and political inequality. According to conventional wisdom, however, more social democratic approaches to labor relations—for example, enabling bargaining for all workers on a sectoral basis—are in deep conflict with American traditions.A largely forgotten moment in U.S. history draws that conventional account into question. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), first enacted in 1938, a few years after passage of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), empowered ... Read More

  • No Power without Organizing
    • Abstract: Around twenty years ago when I worked in the labor movement, I used to go up to Toronto to help a hotel workers' union fight the boss. During one contract dispute, union members and staffers had an understanding with the cops and management that they could stand in front of a car attempting to enter the property for exactly a minute before letting the vehicle pass. As we were in Ontario, there were a lot of U.S. license plates amid the Canadian ones. The difference between the two groups was striking: the Canadians took the whole thing in stride, waited for their minute to pass, and then went on their way. But the U.S. drivers were enraged! A lot of them screamed and cursed and said that we "had no right" to delay ... Read More

  • Airport Workers Strike Back: An Interview with Sara Nelson
    • Abstract: The 2019 government shutdown, the New York Times declared, made Sara Nelson "America's most powerful flight attendant." Through her bold leadership and willingness to threaten a general strike, Nelson, president of the Association of Flight Attendants, became one of the country's most recognizable labor leaders, seemingly overnight.Shortly after the shutdown's end, Nelson joined Dissent's Belabored podcast to talk about the symbolism of airport workers striking back against the president, the current wave of union militancy, and why so many of today's dynamic unions are led by women.Longtime labor watchers were struck by the fact that it was airport workers who helped end the recent shutdown, specifically air ...

  • After Act 10: How Milwaukee Teachers Fought Back
    • Abstract: In 2011, as the Great Recession hit public coffers, Wisconsin's Republican governor Scott Walker addressed a purported budget crisis by attacking public workers. Walker's signature bill, Act 10, struck down public-sector unions' ability to automatically collect dues and limited bargaining to wages capped at inflation. Teachers could no longer negotiate class sizes. Nurses were forced to accept mandatory overtime. Unions lost money and members. Similar anti-union legislation quickly spread across the United States. These state-level offensives culminated in a national policy shift in the summer of 2018, when the Supreme Court's Janus ruling made it illegal for public-sector unions to automatically gather dues from ...

  • Immigrants Didn't Kill Your Union
    • Abstract: Immigrant organizing stood out as a rare bright spot on the otherwise dismal U.S. labor scene in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. To the surprise of many observers, starting in the late 1980s low-wage foreign-born workers, including the undocumented, eagerly welcomed opportunities to unionize and infused the labor movement with new energy. Immigrants also helped to galvanize the "alt-labor" movement, flocking to worker centers across the nation that deployed new strategies to challenge wage theft and other employer abuses in sectors where obstacles to traditional unionism were especially formidable. Largely in response to these developments, union leaders abandoned their longstanding support for ... Read More

  • Power Is Sovereignty, Mr. Bond
    • Abstract: "Ah, Mr. Powers," says Dr. Evil, "welcome to my hollowed-out volcano." The setting, an elaborate underground base on a tropical island from Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, is instantly recognizable. The deranged supervillain, his island lair, the threat of world domination—it's so familiar you forget how bizarre it is.Of all the potentially menacing locales, why do our most ambitious evildoers, the ones bent on world domination, seek out remote specks of land in the middle of seas and oceans' You'd think the qualities of islands that make them desirable vacation spots—their distance from population centers, their relaxed pace of life—would ill suit them as launchpads for global conquest. After all ... Read More

  • Nicos Poulantzas: Philosopher of Democratic Socialism
    • Abstract: As Marxism's old messianic character faded in the late twentieth century, too many forgot that wandering in the wilderness is often the precondition of a prophet's appearance. With the collapse of "really existing" socialism came what seemed like a permanent triumph of capitalism and the slow, grinding destruction of whatever resisted the market's advance. But the far-too-unexpected renaissance of socialism in the twenty-first century reveals not only how much ground has been lost, but how much baggage has been shed. The presence of an authoritarian communist superpower was not only an ideological ball and chain for left politics outside the Eastern bloc, but also a real geopolitical straitjacket: at the electoral ...

  • Modi's Saffron Democracy
    • Abstract: In May 2014, Narendra Modi became India's fourteenth prime minister since independence. Storming to power after a charged electoral campaign, the strongman from Gujarat represented a political earthquake. Under his leadership, the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was the first party to win a parliamentary majority since 1984, ending a quarter century of national coalition governments in New Delhi. It also became the only party apart from the Indian National Congress (known simply as "the Congress"), which had traditionally ruled the country under the direction of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, to win a mandate on its own. Roughly 66 percent of the electorate, the highest share ever, voted in the 2014 ... Read More

  • France's Anti-Liberal Left
    • Abstract: Where did liberalism go wrong' Since right-wing populist electoral victories upended American and European politics three years ago, the left has been plagued by this question. Different voices on the left have proposed different diagnoses of liberalism's failures, along with corresponding remedies. Some, contending that liberals are too invested in identity politics, admonish them to embrace a more encompassing vision of the common good. Others maintain that liberals have, for decades, been the enablers of free-market capitalism, offering no economic alternative to the right. The left, they believe, should make a sharp turn toward social democracy, and perhaps even socialism.Some advocates of these positions have ... Read More

  • Climate Politics after the Yellow Vests
    • Abstract: I first passed the protest camp on Christmas Eve, as the sun was setting and most of the country was preparing to sit down for the holiday dinner. So were twenty-odd local gilets jaunes. This dedicated group of protesters had spent over a month camped out at Jeanne Rose, a large roundabout on the outskirts of the former industrial town of Le Creusot, about four hours' drive southeast of Paris. Their ranks had thinned since November 17, when 150 or so protesters first rallied to the Jeanne Rose roundabout, out of some quarter-million across the country. But those who stuck around had reason to be optimistic. Already, they had won a series of concessions—including the suspension of the fuel tax hike that sparked the ... Read More

  • How Eugene Debs Became a Socialist
    • Abstract: Before Eugene Debs became the most popular socialist in American history, he was an innovative and courageous labor leader. As leader of the American Railway Union (ARU), founded in 1893, he attempted to gather all the crafts in what was then the nation's most essential industry into a single organization that could force employers to raise the wages and improve the working conditions of millions of wage-earners. The ARU's claim to class unity was crippled, however, when its members voted, against Debs's advice, to bar African Americans from joining. In the 1930s, the CIO took up the task of organizing workers by industry, instead of by individual trades. And this time, radical activists helped convince "labor's ... Read More

  • What Men Want
    • Abstract: Andrea Dworkin photographed in London 1988 (Stephen Parker/Alamy)I suspect we are legion, we white women who first read Andrea Dworkin while cresting or just tipped past our teens. I was one, and Johanna Fateman, co-editor of Last Days at Hot Slit: The Radical Feminism of Andrea Dworkin, was another. "To read Dworkin at eighteen," writes Fateman in the introduction, "was to see patriarchy with the skin peeled back." Dworkin's work presents male supremacy at its goriest and most sadistic by focusing on eroticized brutality, the habitual violence of men the world over who are, at this moment and every moment, "shoving it into her, over and over," often when the "her" is unwilling, or when she's a child—and sometimes ...

  • Beyond the Backlash
    • Abstract: In recent years, Europe's social democratic left has been confronted with a terrible case of what hitherto had been largely an American malady: an electorate turning to nativist, largely racist, politics. To be sure, over the past millennium, the continent had experienced periodic outbursts of religious slaughter, but save in those instances (say, the Crusades) when it went spoiling for a fight, most of the violence was inflicted on homegrown Protestants (in Catholic countries), Catholics (in Protestant countries), or Jews (everywhere). Immigrants—and correspondingly, nativists—were generally few and far between.More recently, of course, immigrants from the Middle East, Africa, and beyond have sought refuge in ... Read More

  • The End of the World as We Know It'
    • Abstract: With precipitous declines in humanities course enrollments and punishing cuts to programming, the "crisis in the humanities" still rages. In recent years, however, a growing number of academic humanists have made the move—perhaps because of the crisis in their own ranks—to train their attention on even larger crises threatening America and the world today. Sophia Rosenfeld's Democracy and Truth: A Short History and Roy Scranton's We're Doomed. Now What': Essays on War and Climate Change exemplify the growing trend of scholars willing to lean outside of the ivory tower to intervene on crucial public debates, but not so far as to tumble from it without the insights and explanatory schemes that make their ...

  • An Opposing Force
    • Abstract: Major media outlets have been covering the curious (at least to them) return of socialism for a few years now. But ever since Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez became an overnight media sensation, the socialist beat has boomed. In February, the radical centrists at The Economist boarded the bandwagon with a cover story on "millennial socialism."
