  • The Postcolonial Case for Rethinking Borders
    • Abstract: The specter of the "illegal immigrant" looms large today in North American and European political consciousness, serving as a justification for the often violent hardening of borders. While there is much disagreement about what counts as lawful, fair, just, and prudent border governance, there is a far-reaching but rarely remarked upon consensus that these nations ultimately have the right to exclude non-nationals. Even many of those who reject explicitly ethno-nationalist border agendas seem to believe that immigration, and in particular unauthorized immigration, is a problem out of control. They describe it as a problem of political strangers—people who originate politically outside of the nation.For some, the ... Read More

  • An Interview with Yanis Varoufakis
    • Abstract: The last few years have been a bit of a rollercoaster for the European left. Riding up front has been Yanis Varoufakis, the charismatic economist and former Greek finance minister who went to war with the troika—the European Commission, the European Central Bank, and the International Monetary Fund—in 2015 as it sought to inflict brutal austerity as a penalty for his country's debts and its decision to elect an openly left-wing government headed by Syriza. They lost that fight, but Varoufakis escaped mostly unscathed. Amid Brexit and a wave of Euroskepticism, he went on to found the Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25), pushing for a more democratic and inclusive continent, free of austerity. The group ...

  • Material World
    • Abstract: What if the global ruling class was intentionally destroying the climate' Think about it: educated in the world's most expensive institutions, they must understand what climate change means. They might understand its implications so well, in fact, that they have set out to make sure they are protected from it at the expense of everyone else. Having lost faith in the long-promised world of prosperity, and recognizing that the planet cannot support all of us, elites have deregulated the economy and dismantled the welfare state while lavishly funding the denial of climate change. And wasn't it for these elites that Trump withdrew from the Paris accords, however much he gestured to the citizens of Pittsburgh'This is ... Read More

  • Pop-Up Populism: The Failure of Left-Wing Nationalism in Germany
    • Abstract: In 2016, a dramaturge, a career politician, and a retired sociologist met at the Paris-Moskau Restaurant in Berlin to hatch a plan to disrupt the German left. The dramaturge was the fifty-something Bernd Stegemann, a large man in wire-framed glasses with the slumped mien of an eternal graduate student. He worked a five-minute cab ride away at the Berliner Ensemble, a theater company founded by Bertolt Brecht in the same year as socialist East Germany.The politician was Sahra Wagenknecht, one of the country's most poised and merciless critics of the status quo. Born in East Germany to an Iranian father and a German mother, Wagenknecht was the parliamentary chairperson of die Linke (the Left) party. Since its 2007 ... Read More

  • Jim Crow Must Go in Brooklyn
    • Abstract: In July 1963, "Jim Crow Must Go In Brooklyn!" became the rallying cry of scores of men, women, and children resisting segregation. That summer the civil rights movement was challenging the political establishment from Capitol Hill to the Mississippi Delta. The northern civil rights struggle, however, focused not on legal reform, but economic justice.The powerful building-trades unions were constructing the State University of New York's Downstate Hospital facility in the heart of black Brooklyn— with almost exclusively white workers. Qualified but jobless black workers organized with the Congress of Racial Equality and local clergy to call for anti-discrimination employment rules. Their demand for inclusion ... Read More

  • Organizing Skid Row
    • Abstract: Mornings on Venice Beach are often chilly, thanks to low-lying leaden clouds known as the marine layer. The gloom leaves no golden SoCal gleam on the graffitied concrete skate structures or the shuttered souvenir hutches promising legal pot, bikinis, T-shirts, and ice cream. Surfers cross the sand with their wetsuits half-on, joggers careen through with smartwatches on their wrists, and jet-lagged tourists wheel their suitcases in search of a beachfront hostel. And each Friday morning, near the famous weight-lifting equipment of Muscle Beach, a flotilla of trucks and police cruisers assembles. Police officers and sanitation workers, dressed in blue uniforms or white Tyvek coveralls, huddle amid the trucks before ... Read More

  • Unknown Unknowns
    • Abstract: I was waiting outside the important professor's office when I heard him shout, "Barack Obama will never be president." It was autumn 2007. He was a famous scholar, and I was a first-year grad student. And now, I was furious.I considered myself a Marxist—I was going to meet with the important professor to talk about a dissertation I was writing on the Old Moor himself—but I was also an Obama groupie. It didn't feel as strange at the time as it might seem now. Marx spoke to the ideal of a world of universal emancipation, and Obama represented the best we could achieve in the short term. The acolyte in me didn't want to believe that I was backing a doomed candidate, but my inner political hack didn't buy the argument ... Read More

  • Kwame Nkrumah and the Quest for Independence
    • Abstract: Depending on whether you looked from the North Atlantic or the Black Atlantic, the year 1957 appeared to signal two different political futures. On March 6, Ghana finally secured its independence from Great Britain after a decade-long nationalist struggle. At the independence celebrations, Kwame Nkrumah, the leader of the Convention People's Party and the new prime minister, declared that Ghanaian independence marked the birth of a new African "ready to fight his own battles and show that after all, the black man is capable of managing his own affairs." Less than three weeks later, on March 25, Belgium, France, the Federal Republic of Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands signed the Treaty of Rome ... Read More

  • In memoriam Martin Kilson (1931–2019)
    • Abstract: Longtime Dissent contributor and editorial board member Martin Kilson died on April 24, 2019, at the age of eighty-eight. Kilson, the first African-American tenured professor at Harvard, first contributed to Dissent in 1969 with an article on "The New Black Intellectuals." The essay was characteristic of Kilson's work: erudite, uncompromising, and committed to radical critique. He went on to write over twenty articles for Dissent over the following decades, and edited a special section in 1989—"Black America: Views from Within"—and (with Mitchell Cohen) a special issue in 1992, "Africa Today: Crisis and ...

  • Ursula K. Le Guin's Revolutions
    • Abstract: In the second book of Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea cycle, the wizard Ged tells the priestess Arha that she has a choice. Stay and serve the nameless grim gods of the tomb, as she has done the last ten years of her life, or walk away from them into the light. Arha knows nothing but the dark, not even her original name. Before a religious order named her Arha, the Eaten One, she was Tenar; she had a family, an identity, choices. She can be Tenar again, but only if she can admit that she's wasted her entire life on false gods, and only if she follows Ged out of the tombs and into a world she has never really known.The Earthsea books are set in a world where dragons are real and so is magic. As Arha's choice so ... Read More

  • Can Elephants Be Persons'
    • Abstract: If Happy the elephant were allowed to live a natural life in the wild, she would likely spend her days roaming miles of tropical forest and plucking fruit and leaves from trees with the finger-like tip of her trunk. She would have grown up as part of a complex social system, in which elephant calves are doted on by older siblings, cousins, and aunts. By age forty-seven, Happy would likely have already raised multiple calves of her own. She would trumpet with excitement at the other members of her herd and call to potential mates using infrasonic rumbles that travel long distances, inaudible to the human ear.But Happy does not do any of this. She currently lives alone at the Bronx Zoo. And recently, she has become ... Read More

  • American Nationalism: A Debate
    • Abstract: Last fall, Atossa Araxia Abrahamian wrote a bracing essay for The Nation that criticized progressives in the United States who oppose free migration and defend the existence of nation-states. We should not, she argued, promote "the idea that someone arbitrarily born on the wrong side of a line is less deserving of a good life" or "play by the far right's rules" that, in part, "got us into this mess."An ethical internationalism has always been a cardinal virtue of the left, one we should never abandon. But we can uphold that ideal without calling for scrapping borders and nations. In fact, there are both principled and practical reasons for American leftists to retain them.One cannot engage effectively in democratic ... Read More

  • Political Scenarios for Climate Disaster
    • Abstract: The scientific consensus is beyond debate: because of burning an ever-increasing amount of fossil fuels, our world is undergoing deep and rapid climate change. Unfortunately, the responses of the major states (particularly the United States) have fallen far short of what is needed with respect to reducing carbon emissions. Temperatures continue to rise; the Earth's ecosystems are transforming before our eyes. But the coming changes are not limited to weather or the natural environment. The world's social, political, and economic systems are certain to change as well, perhaps fundamentally. Still, here in the Global North we often act as if our future will be a warmer version of today: liberal capitalism, plus flood ... Read More

  • The Frontier Closes In
    • Abstract: About 25 million people visited Chicago in 1893 for the World's Fair. Many of them took in performances staged by Buffalo Bill Cody, a legendary entertainer and army scout. Cody capitalized on a pervasive sense that a long era of territorial conquest and settlement was coming to an end, and he charmed audiences with a tribute to the closing of the frontier. A cast of former cavalrymen, cowboys, and Native performers reenacted "Custer's Last Fight" at the 1876 Battle of Little Bighorn, where Lakota Sioux and Cheyenne warriors repelled a U.S. battalion. The Natives' victory appealed to spectators because it was ephemeral, and seemed to justify what followed; Cody also imagined the American frontiersman as a global ... Read More

  • Two Paths for Millennial Politics
    • Abstract: When muckraking journalist Lincoln Steffens wanted to catch a glimpse of the future in 1919, he went to Russia. When David Brooks had the same thought eight decades later, he went to Princeton.As he explained in an essay for the Atlantic, published in spring 2001, Brooks arrived hoping to get a sense of "what the young people who are going to be running our country in a few decades are like." With a humble tone appropriate for a mere mortal welcoming his new overlords, Brooks depicted the ruling-class-in-training as a group of streamlined achievement machines. They went to sleep puzzling over math problems, dreamed up solutions as they rested, and were out of bed in time to meet their friends for breakfast at ... Read More

  • No More Lifeboats: Introduction
    • Abstract: In 1974, the science philosopher Garrett Hardin, best known for his idea of the "tragedy of the commons," published a lesser-known piece in Psychology Today called "Lifeboat Ethics." The metaphor of Spaceship Earth was at the height of its popularity. But, Hardin observed, this ship had no captain, and the United Nations was a "toothless tiger." Much better, he thought, to see the world for what it was: a vast ocean where the wealthy sat in a few lifeboats while the poor bobbed in the water alongside, pleading for berth.The lifeboats were nations, and the drowning had no right to enter. For Hardin, the value of nationalism was the principle of collective self-interest— a group survival instinct. Limited resources ... Read More

  • Socialism Beyond Equality
    • Abstract: In February 1965, the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions organized a conversation on utopias between Michael Harrington and Wilbur H. Ferry. Harrington had achieved considerable public recognition with his 1962 book The Other America, and Ferry was one of the leading American thinkers on automation. Both had signed, a year before, the memorandum for a "Triple Revolution," which argued that a "cybernation revolution" would so reduce working hours that workers would have to reimagine what to do with their time.Harrington and Ferry worried that if work declined, a technologically dehumanized "consumer society" might be the result. How, they asked, could we imagine a society that allows us to increase the ... Read More

  • National Neoliberalism in Turkey
    • Abstract: In the summer of 2013, Istanbul's Gezi Park became the site of a historic mobilization against the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government. Prompted by plans to privatize and commodify one of the last vestiges of truly public space in downtown Istanbul, protests spread across the country, with approximately 3.6 million people participating. The protesters coalesced around rejecting the AKP's authoritarianism, but the demonstrations also underscored growing popular discontent with neoliberalism in a country once considered a model for "emerging" economies. The protesters demanded the right to the city, protection of workers' rights, equal access to healthcare and education, and an end to the "pillaging of ... Read More

  • The Collapse of Secularism in West Bengal
    • Abstract: When he was a young man, during the 1950s and '60s, Krishna Pada Sinha Roy did not wear shoes. It was common where Roy lived, a rural district of the Indian state of West Bengal called Birbhum, to go barefoot. But not for someone like Roy: he came from a line of aristocrats who made themselves into bankers, contractors, and politicians.Unlike his relatives, but like many Bengalis of his generation, Roy was a communist. Working as a high-school economics teacher, he educated young people about the divide between the rich and poor. After class, Roy organized street hawkers, rickshaw pullers, and rollers of bidis, rustic cigarettes made from tendu leaves and loose tobacco. He sparked protests over wages and taught ... Read More
