  • The Last Stand of Robert E. Lee
    • Abstract: There are many ways in which Charlottesville, Virginia, is still reeling from the Unite the Right rally in 2017 that claimed one life and made the city synonymous with the resurgent white nationalism of the Trump era. A makeshift memorial still marks the spot where Heather Heyer was killed and dozens of others injured. Politicians, activists, and ordinary citizens are still grappling with what the rally revealed about the city's legacy of white supremacy. And the focal point of the protest—the Robert E. Lee statue—still stands.That might change soon. Under Governor Ralph Northam, the new Democratic majority in the Virginia General Assembly may amend the law that forbids cities and localities from removing their ... Read More

  • After Carbon Democracy
    • Abstract: If you're worried about democracy, climate change won't make you feel better. For decades now, climate—and before it, the ecological crisis more generally—has been a prime exhibit for those who argue that democracy can't solve our most pressing problems.The challenges are legion: climate action requires national commitments to benefit foreigners and present sacrifices for future generations, on the basis of science that, although easily summarized, is complex enough to give narrative hooks to denialists. People simply won't impose harsh limits on themselves willingly, the story goes, especially not to benefit strangers.As evidence, democracy-skeptics point to the angry protests against policies raising the costs of ...

  • Solidarity and Crisis
    • Abstract: Every day delivers a catalog of political horrors. Militarized borders. Unapologetic nationalism. Resource grabs in a zero-sum world with narrowing ecological horizons. When Rosa Luxemburg defined the options for the future as socialism or barbarism, she was envisioning war, imperialism, and some combination of social collapse and unrelenting exploitation—early feudalism with modern weaponry. That bleak disjunctive prophecy feels apt for a world in which the prospect of unprecedented mass migrations is arising alongside politicized racism, and the imperative of growth is further tightening the ecological bottleneck everywhere.What do these slow-moving disasters have in common' Here is a definition of barbarism: a ...

  • The Trauma of the Troubles
    • Abstract: In November 1973, the sisters Dolours and Marian Price, along with a handful of other members of the Provisional Irish Republican Army, were convicted of carrying out a bombing in London that injured hundreds. The sisters immediately declared a hunger strike, arguing that they ought to be classified as political prisoners and allowed to serve their sentences back home, in Northern Ireland. The authorities started force-feeding them after two and a half weeks, and the strike ultimately lasted 203 days, after which they were transferred to Armagh Prison, outside Belfast.Although the strike was over, the sisters didn't start eating normally again. They had developed anorexia so severe that they were ultimately ... Read More

  • It's Party Time
    • Abstract: Over the past four years, I've had the privilege to work for two of the national organizations that took advantage of the political energy unleashed by Bernie Sanders's 2016 run for president. I first served as deputy director of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and then as political director of Our Revolution. The two groups take quite different approaches to the critical question of how, or whether, to work inside the Democratic Party to turn it into a principled, social democratic force.Our Revolution, which was created by the energy and core staff of the Sanders campaign, is dedicated to transforming the party. DSA, on the other hand, avoids engaging with internal party processes in any organized way. ... Read More

  • Old Millennial Yells at Cloud
    • Abstract: Politics is a team sport—and so, we have all learned, is social media. For most of the last century, well-intentioned political theorists lamented that a bureaucratized and media-drenched society had turned democracy into a game where a handful of players competed in front of a passive audience. The same basic dynamic still applies today, except now we have a lot more opportunities to boo or from the sidelines.There's a lot to appreciate about this change. The discrediting of our pundit class, for one. It feels like every time I go online some blue checkmark has found a new way to self-immolate. The internet might be destroying my brain, but it has done a lot worse to Bret "The Bedbug" Stephens, and the rest of us ... Read More

  • How Socialists Can Govern
    • Abstract: Bernie Sanders's presidential primary run in 2016 saw 13 million people vote for a democratic socialist. Two years later, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's underdog, grassroots-driven victory against one of Congress's most powerful Democrats shook the political establishment. Combined with the election of Donald Trump, these two campaigns reignited interest in something many on the left had shied away from for the better part of a century: electoral power.But what is electoral power' Many political theorists distinguish between "state power" and "governing power." The "state"—as described here—is not simply a series of apparatuses but instead the representation of the balance of class forces, with a hegemonic bloc—made up ... Read More

  • Can Extinction Rebellion Survive'
    • Abstract: Ten years ago, as world leaders headed to Copenhagen for the fifteenth annual United Nations Climate Change Conference, dignitaries hailed the event as the last chance to avert catastrophe."If we do not reach a deal at this time," British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, "let us be in no doubt: once the damage from unchecked emissions growth is done, no retrospective global agreement in some future period can undo that choice. By then it will be irretrievably too late." The eminent economist Nicholas Stern echoed Brown's predictions, calling the summit "the most important gathering since the Second World War, given what is at stake."Against this foreboding backdrop, hope was having its moment. U.S. President ... Read More

  • Care and Repair: Left Politics in the Age of Climate Change
    • Abstract: At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in 2019, right-wing luminaries set their sights tightly focused on two targets: the Green New Deal and democratic socialism—for them, one and the same. "It's a watermelon," ousted Trump White House adviser Sebastian Gorka summarized with his usual theatrics. "Green on the outside, deep, deep communist red on the inside. … They want to take your pickup truck, they want to rebuild your home, they want to take away your hamburgers. This is what Stalin dreamt about but never achieved."Like climate change deniers' claims that global warming is a Marxist plot to steal American freedom, the idea of a Green New Deal is nothing new. And both are experiencing a ... Read More

  • The Realigners: An Interview with Waleed Shahid
    • Abstract: It wasn't long after the 2018 midterm elections that talk of a "blue wave" was replaced by rumblings about a war within the Democratic Party. Among the new class of Democratic House members were the four women of color who have come to be known as "the Squad"—Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. They gave voice to a bold progressive politics, including support for the Green New Deal and Medicare for All. They also brought a new willingness to fight, not just against Trump but with their fellow Democrats—even, or perhaps especially, the party's leaders. Ocasio-Cortez had defeated the ten-term incumbent Joe Crowley, then the fourth-ranking House Democrat and a rumored successor to ... Read More

  • Hello to My Haters: Tucker Carlson's Mob and Me
    • Abstract: Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson has a reputation for unleashing frenzies of contempt and vitriol toward individuals of his choosing. His Fox News talk show is known not so much for considering the viewpoints of its guests (be they live or featured via clips in the public domain) as drawing targets on them for thousands of angry viewers to act upon. He also, perhaps unsurprisingly, considers himself a victim of "the mob." About a decade ago, so the world learned thanks to audio clips excavated in early 2019, Carlson expressed a number of opinions during regular appearances on a radio show, including: "Iraq is a crappy place filled with a bunch of, you know, semiliterate primitive monkeys" who should "shut up and obey" ...

  • Among the Post-Liberals
    • Abstract: Few can agree what liberalism is, but everyone can agree that it's on the rocks. A thousand think pieces have made the litany familiar: Trump, China, Brexit, Orbán, add whatever terms appear on your particular bingo card. Rival cottage industries pit liberal critics of "populism" against left and right critics of "liberalism." These warring camps share a sense of liberalism's evident decline.The term itself is notoriously slippery. Originating in the nineteenth century, it is sometimes projected back two or more centuries earlier. Frequently linked to two other terms, democracy and capitalism, its precise relationship with them is nonetheless not obvious; liberals have not always been democrats and probably need ... Read More

  • Listening in an Emergency
    • Abstract: After the last presidential election, a theory made the rounds that under the new administration, music would get really good again. It's hard to track down this notion's first appearance, but it was already widespread by the time Amanda Palmer voiced it to a journalist in December 2016, comparing the looming Trump regime to Weimar Germany as if she had no clue what had happened next, or perhaps considered it all a fair price to pay for Kurt Weill and fishnets. Plenty of other folks were suggesting similar things to their friends between sets at rock clubs or on Facebook, citing not Berlin but New York, waxing nostalgic for the punk scenes that had emerged in the recession-wracked 1970s and '80s.If the adherents of ...

  • The Court Is Not Your Friend
    • Abstract: It has been over a year since Brett Kavanaugh took his seat on the Supreme Court. More evidence of his assault of Christine Blasey Ford, though by no means conclusive, has been presented in the first of several slated books about the newest oracle of the law and the pitched battle around his confirmation. Yet such attention to any justice, and his ideology or indiscretions, risks missing the point: that it is only because the Supreme Court is so powerful that the national obsession with either a judge's character or views can become so intense. Whatever else it involves, juristocracy is also a form of politics by other means. And it is not one that progressives should want.Yet in the past half century they have ... Read More

  • Socialism in More Than One City
    • Abstract: "What is the Commune, that sphinx so tantalizing to the bourgeois mind'" Marx asked in 1871 about the Paris Commune. In our own time, it is not only the bourgeoisie that is tantalized by the politics of the city. Movements on the left are increasingly looking to the local as a place to build power. We are living in a municipalist moment.Across the United States, cities have become islands of progressive possibility. The sanctuary cities movement has compelled municipal governments to aid and shelter immigrants and refugees. The climate movement has won municipal pledges to adhere to emissions reduction targets and pass Green New Deal legislation. In many cases, the labor movement's Fight for $15 won minimum wage ...

  • We Need an Insurgent Mass Movement
    • Abstract: Aziz Rana, a political theorist and constitutional historian, anticipated many of the themes and crises of today's politics. Amid the liberal optimism of 2008–10, he warned that Barack Obama's presidency might prove to be the post-sunset afterglow of a very specific Cold War politics of meritocratic achievement and national unity. Rana calls the worldview of this unity "creedalism," for its devotion to an "American creed." It valorized bipartisanship and the idea that Americans had always been essentially committed to personal liberty, political equality, and competent but limited government, and just had to work out some imperfections through, say, the New Deal and the civil rights movement. Creedalism was the ... Read More

  • Year One of AMLO's Mexico
    • Abstract: On a sunny morning last May on the grounds of Los Pinos, the old presidential residence now open to the public, Mexican citizens strolled past a line of cars, trucks, and armored vehicles. They gazed in the windows of a 1951 Volkswagen bug and posed for pictures in front of a Lamborghini Murciélago. The cars, which all belonged to the Mexican government (some were for official use, some had been seized from criminal organizations), were waiting for auction. "There can be no rich government and a poor people," Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) had repeated on the campaign trail. Now he was president, and this sale symbolized the new order. Proceeds were destined for some of the country's poorest municipalities. ... Read More

  • E Pluribus Country
    • Abstract: After living in New York City for a few years, I noticed something about my closest friends among writers and editors on the left. We all loved country music. I'm not sure if this should be surprising or not, given how often it's associated with conservative politics—"we'll put a boot in your ass, it's the American way," and all that. For me at least, country music was part of growing up working class. I remember my grandfather's Conway Twitty records, and the time he announced that "Dirty Old Egg-Sucking Dog" was Johnny Cash's finest song. After retiring from his job as a welder, he spent hours in the garage he'd built, drinking beer and listening to country music with his head under the hood of his pickup truck. ... Read More
