  • The False Promise of Universal Basic Income
    • Abstract: THE UNEQUAL SOCIETY THAT FUTURISTS FEAR WOULDN’T COME ABOUT BECAUSE THE ROBOTS ARRIVED—IT WOULD BE BECAUSE SO FEW PEOPLE OWNED THEM. Five years ago, dropping the abbreviation UBI in conversation would be more likely to earn you a puzzled glance than a knowing nod. But these days, universal basic income—a policy often glossed as “paying people for being alive”—is gaining popularity both in the United States and abroad. UBI, where everyone gets a regular check from the government regardless of what else they’re doing or how they spend it, is an old idea. But it has seen renewed interest since the 2008 financial crash: As millions of people lost their jobs and wondered whether they’d find new ones, some ... Read More

  • The Miseducation of Betsy DeVos
    • Abstract: By the time the U.S. Senate confirmed Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education on February 7, 2017, she had already made history: the first education secretary with no experience in public education; the first whose display of ignorance at a confirmation hearing provoked national ridicule and a tsunami of grassroots opposition; the first billionaire political funder whose close-knit family had contributed to twenty-three of the senators who would be voting on the nomination; and the first candidate for a cabinet post in U.S. history to have so little support that the vice president’s vote was needed to break a 50-50 tie and secure the confirmation. Yet more alarming than anything else is Betsy DeVos’s contempt ... Read More

  • Scenes from the Front: France’s Front National in Power
    • Abstract: Since March 2014, the Front National (FN) has governed eleven French municipalities: four in the northeast of the country and seven in the southeast, along with one of Marseille’s eight boroughs. About a year after the municipal elections, polls found that a majority of these cities’ residents—74 percent—were “largely” or “very satisfied” with their new local governments. “A repudiation of the system,” declared Steeve Briois, mayor of Hénin-Beaumont, the third-largest municipality governed by the FN. The National Illusion, as we titled our two-year photoreportage on three of these FN cities—Hénin-Beaumont and Hayange in the north and east, Beaucaire in the south—is a projection, in miniature, of ...

  • Introduction: Toward a New Economy
    • Abstract: Almost a decade has passed since the financial crisis, yet economic debate remains trapped by stale assumptions that led to the calamity. The consequences of this intellectual failure could not be higher. As Hillary Clinton observed of the Democratic Party in a strikingly honest interview with the New Yorker a few weeks before the election: “We have been fighting out elections in general on a lot of noneconomic issues over the past thirty years . . . but we haven’t had a coherent, compelling economic case.” Liberals still don’t have one—and, despite posturing to the contrary, neither do conservatives. The diverse essays assembled here point the way to new ground. They analyze capitalism’s past, present, and ... Read More

  • The Candlelight Revolution
    • Abstract: What does it take to peacefully remove a democratically elected president from power? In this brave new world of fake news on Facebook and post-truth politics on Twitter, it was traditional forces of resistance and dissent— idealistic students, intrepid journalists, invigorated parliamentarians, and outraged urbanites—who launched a revolution in Korea. South Korea’s Candlelight Revolution started over the summer of 2016 in the old-fashioned way: with on-campus activism. Students at Ewha Womans University had been protesting the administration over what they called “unilateral and undemocratic” policies, when their ire turned to a specific case of injustice. They learned that the university ... Read More

  • Japan’s Antiwar Legacy
    • Abstract: In his customary New Year’s address, Japanese Emperor Akihito called for the “peace of the people of our country and the world.” These seemingly innocuous words belie the deep division among Japan’s leaders today over the definition and future direction of their nation. With themes redolent of classical Greek drama, this chasm is best understood on an imaginary stage. On one side of this figurative platform are those who favor maintaining the so-called peace clause of Japan’s post-1945 constitution, Article 9, which renounces Japan’s sovereign right to wage war. On the other side are those who argue that Japan must become what they call a “normal nation”—meaning one that can fight wars against ... Read More

  • An Umbrella Closes in Hong Kong
    • Abstract: Reading Hong Kong’s Mingpao newspaper just before Christmas last year, I stumbled across a profile of Connie Lo Yan-wai, a journalist-turned-documentary-filmmaker. Lo is the director of a new film called Vanished Archives that investigates how Communist Party leaders in Beijing worked behind the scenes to inflame riots in Hong Kong, then a British colony, in 1967. Lo told the newspaper she had stowed copies of her film in three locations in the city and left a full roster of her production crew with a trusted friend — all of this to ensure the film could see the light of day “even if something happens.” A few short years ago, remarks like this one might have seemed like the ravings of a paranoid ...

  • What Happened to Workers’ Ed?
    • Abstract: The downtown office of the UCLA Labor Center sits on the northwest edge of MacArthur Park, where geese mingle amid the tents of homeless people. It is late fall, and Victor Narro, the downtown office director and a law professor, is inside printing reports written by his students about how to regulate and decriminalize the city’s extensive informal economy of sidewalk and street vending. Between 12,000 and 20,000 Angelenos, predominately immigrants from Central and South America, sell food and other goods on city streets. Police regularly harass them, confiscate their property, and slap them with fines of up to $500. “They’re just people trying to make a living,” Narro says. This morning he joins ... Read More

  • The Red and the Rainbow: The Life and Work of Daniel Guérin
    • Abstract: Class traitors are a rare breed. Some young bourgeois like to experiment but most end up repenting for their political transgressions. There are more Hitchenses than Guevaras; more David Horowitzes than Tariq Alis; more Brit Humes than John Reeds. After one’s newfound politics suffer a few rounds of defeat or fall out of fashion—or both—the home-spun comforts of privilege seem to have a way of making themselves hard to resist. Fortunately, French activist and writer Daniel Guérin stayed the course— and with style, crafting an iconoclastic blend of history, journalism, criticism, and literature across the twentieth century. Born in 1904 into a well-to-do liberal family on the Left Bank of Paris ... Read More

  • Repression and Resistance in Asia: Introduction
    • Abstract: We live in unsettling and discontented times. Pankaj Mishra’s phrase “age of anger” captures the current zeitgeist, not just in the United States and Europe but also many other parts of the world, including the East and Southeast Asian countries that are the focus of this section. Anger can be good for progressive causes. Fury can drive struggles for equality and for freedom, and fuel revolutions that aim to bring down tyrants. Most recently, it has inspired massive women’s marches, in places as disparate as Warsaw and Washington. It has also fueled giant demonstrations calling for an end to corruption that are underway in Bucharest, as I write, and that recently rocked Seoul. Of late, though, we ... Read More

  • Can Trump Deliver On Growth?
    • Abstract: TRUMP’S ECONOMIC STRATEGY AMOUNTS TO LITTLE MORE THAN A FIRM DETERMINATION TO DRIVE AN OLD CAR, AT HIGH SPEED, INTO A WALL. The new mainstream wisdom is that increased public spending, specifically on infrastructure, can restore strong economic growth and overcome what has come to be called “secular stagnation”—the slow growth of the economy since the Great Financial Crisis of 2007–2009. This is the conclusion drawn by everyone from Bernie Sanders to Larry Summers to President Donald J. Trump and his chief White House political strategist, Steve Bannon. During his campaign, Trump proposed a combination of tax cuts and infrastructure spending, deficits be damned, which made him more of a ... Read More

  • Don’t Feed the Trolls
    • Abstract: LIKE TEENAGERS SNEAKING OUT TO EGG CARS AFTER BEDTIME, THE “ALT-RIGHT” IS JUST LOOKING FOR A RISE. As curtains fell on 2016, one corner of the internet roiled with sinister applause. The so-called “alt-right” found much to celebrate in a year that saw the movement gain mainstream visibility, and fringe politicians seize national power. Steve Bannon, former executive chair of Breitbart News (an outlet he has described as “the platform for the alt-right”), has the president’s ear on national security. Jeff Sessions, whose federal judgeship nomination was rejected due to a history of racism in 1986, is the U.S. Attorney General. And their candidate—“God Emperor Trump” to some— now sits in the Oval ... Read More

  • Who Killed Obamacare?
    • Abstract: Republicans, both of the Trump variety and otherwise, are finding that efforts to “repeal and replace” the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) are proving legislatively complex and politically fraught. It is hard to destroy a program that has expanded medical insurance coverage to 20 million citizens, regulated health provision for tens of millions more, and materially transformed the entire medical-hospital industry. Democrats have mobilized themselves to resist, GOP Congressmen face angry constituents at town hall meetings, and popular support for the ACA is actually inching upward. But despite some GOP wavering, it seems likely that after seven years of intransigent hostility to ... Read More

  • Duterte Unbound
    • Abstract: In the Philippines, the deaths from President Rodrigo Duterte’s bloody war on drugs keep mounting. In seven months, there have been over 7,000. Most of these have been in the poorest communities among those labeled by the police as “drug personalities,” that is, suspected dealers and users— Duterte makes no distinction between the two. The killings, carried out by the police in league with vigilantes unfold like clockwork, from around ten in the evening to five the next morning. Success is measured by the body count, and with Duterte in the habit of exposing local officials implicated in the drug trade while threatening to declare Martial Law, there is no end in sight to the nightly executions. ...

  • Trump and the F-Word
    • Abstract: It is tempting to call our new president a fascist. Trump rants at mass rallies about restoring the nation’s “greatness,” tries to ban non-Christian immigrants, threatened to imprison his political opponent, smears non-fawning media outlets as “enemies of the people,” and despises an independent judiciary. It’s no surprise that neo-Nazis are among the president’s biggest fans. Soon after his election, David Duke tweeted, “Trump truly understands that the media is at war against him, our heritage and our people!” Yet nailing the F-word to Trump is a temptation we should resist. While thoroughly abhorrent, he does not live down to the standard of tyranny set by erstwhile dictators in Germany or ... Read More

  • The Chairman of Everything
    • Abstract: Xi Jinping’s rise to power was no surprise—he had been designated Hu Jintao’s heir apparent several years before. The same cannot be said of what has followed his ascent to the dual posts of General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), in November 2012, and President of the People’s Republic of China, the following March. In fact, he has accumulated so many additional titles—recently “Commander-in-Chief”—that China scholar Geremie Barmé puckishly suggests that we simply call him “Chairman of Everything.” This nickname, while amusing, underscores something significant. Xi is much more of a go-it-alone strongman leader than the bland consensus-builder, Hu Jintao. Xi has developed ... Read More

  • Party Crashers: How Far-Right Demagogues Took Over the GOP
    • Abstract: “Every daily newspaper in the state endorsed a different candidate beside me. It’s taking them a little time to get used to the idea that I was the people’s choice.” One could easily imagine Donald Trump saying that during one of his tirades against the press, or when he insists that, if “illegals” hadn’t cast ballots, he would have won the popular vote. But these words actually belong to former Arizona governor Evan Mecham, who served just fifteen months before the state Senate removed him from office in 1988 for questionable use of campaign contributions, diverting public funds to his car dealership, and obstructing justice. Mecham and Trump have a lot more in common than their disdain for ... Read More

  • Malignant Normality
    • Abstract: Thirty years after the publication of The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide, and an additional decade after first encountering them, Nazi doctors remain unwelcome inhabitants of my mind. They are exemplars of what I would now call the normalization of evil. And they further suggest the relative ease with which physicians—members of my own medical profession with its claim to healing—could be socialized to killing. Most of those involved simply carried out what was expected of them, at times requiring a combination of pressure and guidance from others, heavy drinking, and what could be called faux psychotherapy from more experienced colleagues. But there were some who ... Read More

  • On the Dole with Ken Loach
    • Abstract: “Could I recommend the Prime Minister supports British cinema and takes herself along to see a Palme d’Or-winning film, I, Daniel Blake?” Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said to Theresa May in parliament last November. “And while she’s doing so perhaps she could take the Work and Pensions secretary with her because he described the film as ‘monstrously unfair’ and then went on to admit that he’d never seen it . . . but I’ll tell the Prime Minister what’s monstrously unfair: ex-servicemen like David Clapson dying without food in his home due to the government’s sanctions regime.” The recommendation was made during Prime Minister’s Questions, a theatrical weekly event in which MPs sitting on green leather ...

  • Breaking with Capitalist Orthodoxy
    • Abstract: The capitalist economies of the developed world have, over the last decade, proven to be profoundly dysfunctional. Not only did the 2008 financial crash lead to the deepest and longest recession in modern history, but nearly a decade later, few advanced economies have returned to anything resembling stability. Prospects for growth remain uncertain. Even during the pre-crash period when economic growth was strong, living standards for the majority of workers in developed countries barely rose. Inequality between the richest and the rest of society has now grown to levels not seen since the nineteenth century. Meanwhile, continued environmental pressures, especially climate change, threaten global prosperity. ... Read More

  • What Is Progressive Neoliberalism?: A Debate
    • Abstract: The election of Donald Trump represents one of a series of dramatic political uprisings that together signal a collapse of neoliberal hegemony. These uprisings include the Brexit vote in the United Kingdom, the rejection of the Renzi reforms in Italy, the Bernie Sanders campaign for the Democratic Party nomination in the United States, and rising support for the National Front in France, among others. Although they differ in ideology and goals, these electoral mutinies share a common target: all are rejections of corporate globalization, neoliberalism, and the political establishments that have promoted them. In every case, voters are saying “No!” to the lethal combination of austerity, free trade, predatory ... Read More

  • The Historical Task of the Left
    • Abstract: Nothing like the title of this article has ever appeared in Dissent. It is a line frequently used by Joseph Stalin, and according to all the transcripts of his speeches, it was always followed by “Prolonged Applause.” But this seems the right historical moment to take it back. It originally was the beginning of the sentence that came in response to the question: “What ought to be done?” So, in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s victory, when populist nationalism and brutal xenophobia threaten the liberal order in Europe, when democracy is on the defensive everywhere (and social democracy more so), when immigrants and minorities are at risk in every European country and now in the United States too ...

  • The Elusive Karl Polanyi
    • Abstract: Karl Polanyi had thought of calling his magnum opus Origins of the Cataclysm, or The Liberal Utopia, or Freedom from Economics. His publisher, worried about the book’s marketability, instead gave it the title by which it eventually became famous: The Great Transformation. It was an ambiguous phrase. Readers might imagine that “the great transformation” refers to the history the book traces: the imposition, equally utopian and violent, of the market economy upon a recalcitrant society, spreading from England to encompass the globe and ultimately bringing on the collapse of world order in the twentieth century. But for Polanyi the great transformation lay not in the past but in the future. It referred not to ... Read More

  • Slavery on Screen
    • Abstract: Long after the Civil War ended, the history of slavery—in both the academy and in popular culture—stayed wrapped in the moonlight-and-magnolia plantation myths of the Old South. Championed by Southern historians such as U.B. Phillips, the interpretation of slavery as an institution populated by faithful servants and benevolent, paternalistic masters was famously reflected in the multiple Oscar-winning blockbuster, Gone with the Wind (1939), based on the novel by Margaret Mitchell. Abolitionists and African-American writers and historians had, of course, always told a very different story. Black and white abolitionists had uncovered the horrors of slavery and tried to combat the pervasive racism of ... Read More

  • The Price of Life: From Slavery to Corporate Life Insurance
    • Abstract: In the past decade, the coal-mining region that runs from Ohio to West Virginia has logged nearly 1,000 cases of “black lung disease” plaguing workers who’ve faced prolonged exposure to coal dust. But Senate Republicans have stalled legislation that retired coal miners desperately need to access the healthcare plans and pensions they were promised. Donald Trump became the forty-fifth president of the United States in part based on the claim that he would restore jobs by reviving the nation’s coal industry. But coal embodies capitalism’s most telling paradox: that the most lucrative industries are often the most dangerous. From the time it was first discovered in the United States in 1701 in ...

  • Court vs. Crown in Thailand
    • Abstract: As the third anniversary of the May 22, 2014, coup by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) approaches, there are few signs of an end to military rule in Thailand. The NCPO has used—and abused—the law and the civilian and military courts to repress dissident speech and political action. Since the coup, at least ninety people have been charged with “lèse majesté,” or insulting the monarchy, fifty-eight with sedition, and 254 with violating the ban on public assemblies of five or more persons. Those charged, particularly in lèse majesté cases, can face up to fifteen years imprisonment per count, and a range of actions—Facebook posts, bathroom graffiti, political theater—have been criminalized. ...

  • A Cautious Case for Economic Nationalism
    • Abstract: The term “global capitalism” expresses a contradiction. Sovereignty, democracy, and economic regulation are national but, as we are constantly reminded, the economy is global. Elite opinion replies without hesitation: International trade and foreign investment work, thanks to the magic of the market. It’s national governments that are old-fashioned, obsolete. Globalization is a fact. If it limits space for political control of the economy, so much the better. Socialists, however, must hesitate: We neither have faith in automatic adjustment by markets, nor are we willing to give up conscious regulation of the economy. We are torn between seemingly incompatible goals—to build genuinely ... Read More

  • Like the Weather
    • Abstract: ALL AMERICANS, NOT JUST THE ONES WHO PULL THE TRIGGER, ARE COMPLICIT IN GUN VIOLENCE. In the center of Kerry James Marshall’s imposing painting “The Lost Boys” (1993)— it’s more than eight feet tall and ten feet wide—are two young black boys, one of them holding a toy gun, the other riding a mechanical toy car. Before them sits a small shrine, complete with plastic cherub. To their left is a tree labeled “Life,” trunk wrapped in police crime scene tape, bullets hanging from the leaves. Written delicately near each boy is the date he was gunned down. With its Biblical allusions and subtle visual nods to Renaissance art, and in its sheer, monumental size, Marshall’s piece employs the tropes and form of ... Read More

  • The False Economics of Anti-Immigration
    • Abstract: In his inaugural address, President Donald Trump proclaimed, “From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first.” Every decision in a Trump administration, he explained, “will be made to benefit American workers and American families”—workers and families who know that protecting U.S. borders “will lead to great prosperity and strength.” This is consistent, in its protectionist logic, with campaign pledges Trump has already moved to fulfill: building a wall along the border with Mexico, preventing Syrian and other refugees from entering the country, and deporting undocumented immigrants. These actions draw force from the belief that ... Read More

  • The Logic of Populism
    • Abstract: The current debate over the nature of populism brings to mind the myriad works from the 1950s on totalitarianism. During this decade Hannah Arendt, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Raymond Aron, David Riesman, and countless others debated the fundamental character of totalitarianism. By 1980 the concept had become so confusing that Aron himself wondered if it should be abandoned altogether. Perhaps today’s cottage industry devoted to populism awaits a similar fate, although in the early days of the Trump administration the boom shows no signs of abating. But there is a different way to look at the comparison between totalitarianism and populism that is highly relevant. Early theorists of totalitarianism were ... Read More

  • The Rise of Solitary
    • Abstract: At the end of 1989, a few weeks after the Berlin Wall came down, the state of California opened its first supermax facility. The Pelican Bay State Prison, built in a remote territory near the Oregon border, contains more than a thousand cells designed for solitary confinement. The annual cost of keeping a prisoner in one of these cells: about $70,000, or 126 percent of the median U.S. household income. The California Department of Corrections rejects the term “solitary confinement,” instead calling Pelican Bay’s supermax cells “Security Housing Units,” or SHUs. But see if this sounds like solitary confinement to you: until conditions eased slightly after hunger strikes in 2011 and 2013, Pelican ... Read More

  • Against Conservative Internationalism
    • Abstract: As the intense debate over Brexit unfolded last summer, the postwar era was on everyone’s mind. “Britain Rattles Postwar Order,” proclaimed the New York Times after the British voted to leave the European Union. “A repudiation of the post-war economic and political order” announced Forbes. For many progressives, the corrosion of post-war internationalism seemed especially alarming. Political scientist Sheri Berman spoke for many when she claimed in the Washington Post that unprecedented European cooperation had been a necessary foundation for the bold expansion of the welfare state after the Second World War; the demise of integration would therefore accelerate the breakdown of economic distribution ...
