  • Editor's Page: Beyond Anger
    • Abstract: We live in an "age of anger," writes Pankaj Mishra, as a burning resentment of the old order and the elites who run it dominate politics around the world. His new book with that title focuses on young terrorists and vengeful right-wing nationalists. But his phrase also fits the mood of the broad American left, particularly since Donald Trump's election and the first six months of his presidency.There is, of course, a great deal to be angry about. From healthcare to the environment to immigration to labor, every major act by Trump's administration and its Republican enablers has been profoundly inhumane and shot through with lies. Unless the Russia scandal blows their house down, they will likely continue on the ... Read More

  • It Gets Wetter
    • Abstract: It's a novel scene—New York City, 123 years from now: half-drowned but not out. Still a capital of real estate, still a political powerhouse, still an unequal battleground between finance and housing movements, still a crucible where capitalism and climate politics are smashed, melted, and twisted together. The (true) physical premise is that upper Manhattan is fifty feet higher than lower Manhattan.With sea levels fifty-eight feet higher than today, after two "pulses" of catastrophic, rapidly rising waters, the island's bottom half is submerged. The water has climbed three stories. At low tide, there's "a green bathtub ring on every building" in the still inhabited "intertidal" zone. Wall Street, Soho, Chelsea ... Read More

  • Artistic Differences
    • Abstract: As a piece of political art, "He Will Not Divide Us" started out anodyne enough. On January 20, the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, the artistic team LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner—which includes the child star turned action hero turned performance artist Shia LaBeouf and his collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner—unveiled a livestreaming webcam embedded in a wall outside the Museum of the Moving Image, in Queens, New York. "He Will Not Divide Us" was written above the camera in big block letters, and visitors were invited to repeat the phrase, mantra-like, into the lens. The footage would be streamed online, at hewillnotdivide.us, continuously for four years, until the end of Trump's first ... Read More

  • The Apocalyptic Baldwin
    • Abstract: Jordan Peele's satirical horror film, Get Out, begins with a black man, Andre Hayworth, nervously walking through a leafy white suburb at night. Hayworth is nervous for good reason. An SUV slowly crawls past him, parks, and its white driver grabs him and throws him in the trunk.Peele's inversion of the familiar trope of a white man in an ominous black neighborhood swiftly introduces the film's villain: white liberals. The main plot revolves around Chris Washington (played by Daniel Kaluuya), a black man visiting his white girlfriend's family's rural estate. The ostensibly progressive family (Chris's girlfriend insists her dad would have voted for Obama for a third term if possible) ends up subjecting him to a ... Read More

  • Introduction: Left in the Middle
    • Abstract: A few days after last fall's election, Michael Moore went on MSNBC to explain why he thought Donald Trump had carried, narrowly, the Midwestern states that proved critical to his shocking victory. As "an angry white guy over the age of 35" with "just a high-school education," the filmmaker claimed insights many of his fellow progressives lacked.He drove that point home with a comment about headgear. Moore recalled that when the Trump campaign reported spending more money on "Make America Great Again" hats than on any other single expense, liberals in the media had chuckled. "I looked at that and I thought, 'Wow, there's the bubble right there. They don't understand,'" he said, donning his own cap. "This is where ... Read More

  • Working Too Hard For Too Little: An Interview with Senator Sherrod Brown
    • Abstract: Sherrod Brown is a politician ahead of his time. Decades before most progressives began campaigning hard against economic inequality, he was warning about the loss of good jobs and the decline of labor unions in his home state of Ohio and elsewhere in the country. First elected to the House of Representatives in 1992, Brown has distinguished himself as perhaps the most class-conscious Democrat in Washington. For years, he has worn a canary pin on his lapel to honor the workers' rights movement that "gave us all food-safety laws, civil rights, rights for the disabled, pensions, and the minimum wage."In 2006, Brown won a seat in the U.S. Senate and was reelected in 2012, both times by healthy margins. However, Ohio ... Read More

  • Mississippi Autoworkers Mobilize
    • Abstract: The workers at the Nissan plant in Canton, Mississippi, had high hopes when the state-of-the-art factory complex moved in fourteen years ago to a small, majority black town where more than a quarter of residents live in poverty and decent jobs are scarce.As the manufacturing economy stagnated in the early 2000s, Nissan brought a streak of Clinton-era economic optimism into this struggling corner of the South. the global auto giant erected a multinational enterprise that is now the largest local employer, with more than 5,000 blue-collar jobs for an area with a workforce of fewer than 8,000. the factory's launch was intended to make Canton a keystone of Mississippi's "advanced manufacturing" growth agenda, promising ...

  • Birmingham's Fight for a Living Wage
    • Abstract: The election of Donald Trump has turned our attention to the politics of white working-class people, particularly in the states that voted for him last fall. But progressives should not ignore the activism of the black working class in many of those same red states.In Alabama, the Greater Birmingham Ministries (GBM), where I serve as executive director, has been leading a campaign for economic justice that might serve as a model for similar initiatives in other southern cities. For the past two years, GBM has been the key ally for fast-food workers in Birmingham who are fighting for a $15-an-hour minimum wage and the right to a union. Along with other underpaid workers across the country, these cooks and cashiers ... Read More

  • The Next Operation Dixie
    • Abstract: The election of Donald Trump has led to a lot of soul-searching on the left. In particular, the narrative since the election has focused on Trump's appeal to working people, and whether this reflects an inherent racism among the so-called "white working class" or a failure of liberals and the left to speak to their economic concerns.While the divide between "red" and "blue" states is often overstated (just ask the Republican governors of Massachusetts and Illinois), the Deep South has always lagged behind in union organizing. The failure of the CIO's "Operation Dixie" in the late 1940s and concerted campaigns to divide black workers from white workers in law and on the shop floor left southern workers with fewer ...

  • Standing with Immigrants in Nebraska
    • Abstract: Donald Trump won the presidency, in part, by exploiting xenophobic anxieties and portraying immigrants and refugees as "bad dudes": rapists, drug dealers, and terrorists. Since taking office his rhetoric and policies have sought to punish them—by increasing the number of agents in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (or ICE) and the Border Patrol, expanding the number of raids on the undocumented, and trying to speed up deportations of detainees. The result, in communities where immigrants and their children live, has been an intense rise in alarm and anxiety. People wonder what will happen to children if their parents are picked up, and any interaction with nativists is fraught with potential for ... Read More

  • Bringing Power to the People: The Unlikely Case for Utility Populism
    • Abstract: One glaring omission in the postmortem handwringing about the 2016 election is the fact that most poor people in America—of all races and genders—simply didn't vote. They were prevented from doing so by a number of structural barriers—voting restrictions, second and third jobs, far-flung polling locations—as well as a lack of excitement about two parties they saw as having abandoned them.Enter: twenty-first-century electric cooperatives, a perhaps unlikely player in the contest for power between progressives and conservatives in the heart of so-called Trump country in rural America.If there's one thing poor, rural communities tend to have in common, it's where they get their power—not political power, but actual ...

Perhaps at some primeval level they feel more sorry for her than horrified for me. It's too early, even for me. I choose clarity.—Did you feel entitled to ask me that because I'm the only brown person standing here'My daughters press against my body on either side, comprehending only its hardness ... Read More

  • How Tax Policy Created the 1%
    • Abstract: In April, tens of thousands of protesters across the country joined the Tax March, although most realized Trump won't divulge anything about his taxes unless Congress or the courts take action. So we may never know the truth about Trump's income and charitable contributions, about the conflicts of interest and the "emoluments" from foreign powers.Trump's already said a lot about his taxes. In the first presidential debate, he famously boasted that his ostensibly legal tax avoidance strategies prove he's "smart"—and by extension, so are the rest of the rich who do likewise. With Republicans controlling both the White House and Congress, the stage is set for massive tax cuts to reward those brilliant members of the 1 ... Read More

  • Dirty Secrets of the Laundry Industry
    • Abstract: It was before 6 a.m. on January 5, 2011 when Marlyn Gonzalez drove through darkness and freezing cold into the parking lot of the commercial laundry where she worked in Southampton, New York. After she dropped off her mother, who also worked at Suffolk Laundry, and parked her car, Gonzalez was surprised to find her manager, Rajindra Singh, waiting for her in the lot. When she tried to get out of her car, Singh blocked her. He put his hand on Gonzalez's knee, running it all the way up to what she called her "intimate parts" and told her that he wanted "to touch [her] pussy."Gonzalez got away from Singh by telling him she had a boyfriend. She got to her workstation at the laundry and began feeding sheets into a ... Read More

  • Against Moral Austerity: How Religion Can Revitalize the Left
    • Abstract: Despair and defeat can drive many of us to our knees in prayer. In moments of crisis, we cry out to the heavens for mercy or justice; God, so easy to forget in times of abundance, suddenly returns as a presence in our lives.So it is, after a fashion, with the Democratic Party. When it loses the presidency, or gets rebuked in midterm elections, questions about religion inevitably reemerge. These can take any number of forms: concerns about winning over "values voters" or addressing the "God gap"; a jealous appreciation of the organizational prowess of the religious right; or practical debates about outreach efforts to religious voters by candidates and campaigns. In these days of rage and fear, we are pondering ... Read More

  • Stuck in Sanctuary: A Philadelphia Family Resists Deportation
    • Abstract: It hadn't been easy, but after sixteen years, Javier Flores, an undocumented immigrant from Toluca, Mexico, was well on his way to creating a secure life in the United States. He and his partner, Alma, were living in a large twostory stone house in northeast Philadelphia, a quiet middle-class part of town. They had a son—Javier Jr.—and were raising Alma's older daughter. The house had a backyard large enough to accommodate the heavy treecutting machinery Flores had invested in for his landscaping work. He and his brother planned to start their own business.Then, on November 5, 2013, Flores was taking out the trash when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents swarmed onto the lawn, handcuffed him, and ...

  • Strike to Win: Can Polish Feminists Turn Protest Into Power'
    • Abstract: On, Sunday March 5, a dense line of protesters stretched across two of Warsaw's massive blocks starting from the Palace of Culture and Science, a wedding cake of a building funded by Stalin. They marched under the slogan "Against the Violence of Power" along with protesters in eight other cities in Poland. Organized by Manifa, a group of radical feminists, these marches are an annual opportunity to talk about issues that are toxic for political parties to touch: abortion, unpaid women's labor, and the rights of disabled people and sex workers.This year, the crowd at Manifa's march was larger than usual. The 4,000 people who marched in Warsaw are just one slice of the opposition movement that has blossomed in Poland ... Read More

  • From Stranger to Citizen': Germany's Refugee Dilemma
    • Abstract: During the refugee crisis in 2015, people from war-torn Middle Eastern and African countries escaped in large numbers to Europe. While right-wing governments in Hungary, Slovakia, and the Czech republic refused them entry, Germany took them in. An enthusiastic and supportive Willkommenskultur (welcoming culture) swept through most of the country. Aid workers responded to the refugees' plight by providing shelter, medical care, and clothing.

  • States for Sale
    • Abstract: I write this review sitting a few blocks away from the golden dome of the Iowa state capitol, under which newly elected GOP majorities are introducing a raft of bills slashing the minimum wage, union rights, and access to the ballot box that look similar, if not identical, to measures passed in many other Midwestern states over the past few years. Supported by Governor Terry Branstad, a GOP hard-liner, one of the Iowa legislature's first moves in 2017 was to enact a slew of measures aimed at the state's public unions. Those measures were modeled after Wisconsin's controversial government employee reforms, which have decimated the Badger State's public labor movement. For years, Iowan public unions could bargain ... Read More

  • Modern Family
    • Abstract: Homer J. Simpson is one of contemporary pop culture's exemplars of alienated labor. A man of considerable sloth and selfishness, he continues to clock into a job at Springfield's nuclear power plant that he loathes and at which he is worryingly incompetent. Why does he put up with it' In one of the series' finest episodes, we learn that Homer had once had the opportunity for joyful employment at the local bowling alley. In a cruel irony, it was precisely Homer's joy at the job that led to Marge's pregnancy. Responsible for a child that he could not afford, he returns to the power plant. The scene is a gut-wrenching reminder of the affective logic of modern capitalism. Why does he stay' The sign that Homer fashions ... Read More

  • The Philosopher with a Thousand Eyes
    • Abstract: For white nationalist Richard Spencer, reading Friedrich Nietzsche as an undergraduate was his first "red-pilling" experience—a Matrix reference beloved by the "alt-right" to connote the revelation of reality beyond lived illusions. Nietzsche would have likely hated the crappy Cartesianism of the Matrix and despised the nostalgic nationalism and cosplay masculinism of the "alt right." But this is hardly the first time that Nietzsche has needed salvaging. As cultural theorist Sylvère Lotringer has noted, "reappropriating Nietzsche, the philosopher with a thousand eyes, has never been a very difficult thing to do."No efforts were more damaging that those of Nietzsche's own sister, Elisabeth. In a story now well ... Read More

  • The Warped Logic of School Privatization
    • Abstract: With a quarter-century of advocacy and institution building under its belt and extraordinarily deep pockets financing it, the movement to privatize public schools has become an influential presence in American education. After twenty-five years this movement has a substantial record that demands careful, thorough evaluation.Samuel Abrams's Education and the Commercial Mindset makes a signal contribution to such an evaluation. The bulk of the book is taken up with well-documented comparative studies of two different moments of the school privatization movement—for-profit educational management organizations (EMOs) and nominally non-profit charter management organizations (CMOs). This contrast proves instructive ... Read More

  • A People's Mayor
    • Abstract: On June 6, Chokwe Antar Lumumba won 93 percent of the vote to become mayor of Jackson, Mississippi. Jackson, a city that is 80 percent black, with 31 percent of its population living in poverty, is the capital of a state that is overwhelmingly governed by white Republicans. In these respects, it is not entirely unique among red-state cities. But it is unique in electing a mayor like Lumumba, son of Chokwe Lumumba, who served for less than a year as mayor of Jackson until his death in 2014. Both men ran on their "People's Platform," a plan to bring about economic self-determination in the city by promoting cooperative businesses and participatory democracy. This photo was taken in May by photographer Ruddy Roye, a ... Read More
