  • Let Them Eat Tech
    • Abstract: In the final days of the 2016 presidential campaign, Bill Clinton paid a visit to the community of Whiteville, a struggling small city of about 5,500 people in southeastern North Carolina. Hillary Clinton was having a hard time establishing support among poor and working-class residents in rural areas, and Bill—who had once proclaimed himself the "ambassador to rural America"—was there to help. In fact, the former president spent much of that October touring communities like Whiteville across battleground states in the Upper South and Midwest, where he empathized with the economic hardships rural voters were facing. If elected, his wife had a plan for "connecting small town and rural America to the successes of the ... Read More

  • Prisons and the Rural Ghetto
    • Abstract: Many believe prisons are the ultimate form of racial and economic exploitation. Yet in the rural communities where most of the nation's prisons are located, even people of color can end up on the other side of the national debate about incarceration. I learned this after meeting folks like Coach Cecil Twilley, a pioneer in Forrest City, Arkansas, and the Mississippi Delta. Coach, as he is affectionately known in this Southern rural town of about 14,000, integrated the local school board and administration; he was the first black member of the local country club, the first black head coach after desegregation of the public schools, and the last local high school football coach to win the Arkansas state championship ...

  • Land Reform and the Green New Deal
    • Abstract: Talk of a Green New Deal is shaking up the U.S. political landscape. While the specifics remain open to debate, Green New Deal proponents argue that the government could simultaneously reduce inequality and the dangers of climate change with a variety of measures aimed at shifting the national economy toward renewable energy sources. Conservative forces and their media mouthpieces are working hard to discredit the Green New Deal as, among other things, an attack on individual freedoms promoted by big-city vegans. But while support for the Green New Deal is higher in urban and suburban areas (67 and 63 percent, respectively), a majority of likely rural voters (55 percent) also favor the idea.As the 2020 elections ...

  • The Seeds of Progressive Populism
    • Abstract: "Most of us are one step away from disaster," says Kathleen Oliver, a semi-retired social welfare professional who lives in the small town of Marlborough, New Hampshire. At seventy-four, Oliver stopped working full-time some years back, but with only her monthly Social Security check to get by on and various family members to take care of, she was coming up short. She sold her house, then picked up a couple of part-time jobs. "I can see how the elderly become depressed," Kathleen acknowledges, though she does not share the same feeling of resignation. "I probably won't be among the depressed. I'll be among the pissed off."Nearly 20 percent of people in the United States live in communities classified as rural. In ... Read More

  • The New Tech Culture Wars
    • Abstract: There was a time not so long ago when big tech companies were celebrated by both the conservative and liberal mainstream as proof positive of the genius of American capitalism. Silicon Valley optimism was a countervailing force against generalized malaise and stagnation. Criticism of the tech sector stayed mostly on the margins.In the last few years, this has changed. The corporations at the very top of the industry, now among the most highly valued and powerful companies in the world, are subject to scrutiny and attack from all directions. The critiques take a variety of forms—anti-monopoly, pro-privacy, for workers' rights, against collaboration with authoritarian governments. But nothing has so dominated the ... Read More

  • Why We Need a Working-Class Media
    • Abstract: I came up with the Statue of Liberty close at hand, seeing her on clear days and nights from the high-floor window of my childhood apartment in Queens. Down on brown knees with elbows resting on the sill, I'd take in this postcard view of the Manhattan skyline, just about making out the lady's outstretched hand. I was twenty miles away, a distance that also spanned the leap between my household and those glimmering spires of wealth, security, and different worries.The leap seemed possible to me because, well, why wouldn't it' I was that kind of kid. And in school I was learning that the Statue of Liberty is a 24/7 broadcast of a powerful story: in America, poor immigrants can close those twenty miles.I'd emigrated ... Read More

  • The Rise of the Texas Left
    • Abstract: Almost a year has passed since Beto O'Rourke nearly unseated Ted Cruz in his 2018 Texas Senate bid, driving record levels of midterm voter turnout across the state. That surge helped sweep two powerful congressional Republicans from their previously safe suburban perches and put more than a dozen new Democratic legislators in the statehouse. For the first time since 2002—when Republicans completed the Rove revolution and wiped out the Democrats' last vestige of power in state government—Texas's downtrodden opposition party came within spitting distance of controlling the state House of Representatives.The O'Rourke campaign's biggest service to Texas politics was proving that statewide Democrats need not cater to a ...

  • Five Years after Ferguson
    • Abstract: In the winter of 1965, as the fifth anniversary of the Greensboro, North Carolina, Woolworth's lunch counter sit-in approached, reporters from around the world penned pieces looking back at the historic protest that sparked similar acts of civil disobedience across the South. The sit-in had led to the formation of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), one of the era's most important movements. In one form or another, the news articles all asked: "What has happened'" Where was the nation after four North Carolina Agricultural and Technical students struck out against the state's segregation laws'SNCC workers had fanned out across the state of Mississippi to register voters, provide civic education ...

  • The Example of Agnes Heller, 1929–2019
    • Abstract: Marxist humanism was the subject of our first conversation. It was 1986. Philosopher Agnes Heller, who died in July in her native Hungary, had been the leading student of Georg Lukács (1885–1971), the most important Marxist philosopher after Marx, despite a tortured relation with the Hungarian Communist Party.Heller had arrived in New York to become Hannah Arendt Professor of Philosophy at the New School. I simply called her up, told her that I was writing on Lucien Goldmann (1913–70), the Romanian-French Marxist humanist who championed Lukács's early work in 1950s and 1960s France. She had known Goldmann, and I wanted to discuss a debate she had had with him. "Meet us tomorrow in the lobby," she said. I found her ... Read More

  • The Rigorous Experimentalism of Ann Snitow, 1943–2019
    • Abstract: Ann was the most generous friend, mentor, and comrade, the constant host in her SoHo loft of visiting feminists and their conferences (and Dissent holiday parties), the warmest presence in any room—"my dear, tell me"—but I don't want to talk about that here. Ann was forward looking. At her New School retirement celebration in April, all assembled testified to her brilliance and spoke about her founding of the New School gender studies program. When it was Ann's turn to talk, she spoke to us about what was happening in Eastern Europe, new developments in right-wing power and abortion politics.Our current political moment is not only dire but incoherent. It's not clear how to organize successfully against the forces ... Read More

    • Abstract: Barack Obama walks to the Oval Office after a rally celebrating the signing of the Affordable Care Act, March 23, 2010. (Jewel Samad/AFP/Getty Images)What is the defining achievement of Barack Obama' For a time, it seemed it would be his foreign policy: the Paris Agreement, diplomatic relations with Cuba, and getting Iran to give up its nuclear weapons program. When Trump got elected and those deals got undone, it seemed it would be the Affordable Care Act. But after plummeting for several years, the uninsured rate among adults has begun to creep back up. Obama did avert a second Great Depression, but history is not kind to averters: with time, what didn't happen tends to get eclipsed by what did. And what did ... Read More

  • Afterlives of the Emergency
    • Abstract: The history of independent India is bracketed by two midnights. One is Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru's famous speech on the eve of independence, August 14, 1947: "At the stroke of the midnight hour, while the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom." The other is midnight on June 25, 1975, when Nehru's daughter, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, suspended the rule of law, ushering in the Emergency, often regarded as the grimmest period in India's postcolonial history. One midnight heralded the breaking of the dawn. The other ushered in the darkness.Rationalized as a response to internal unrest, most notably the brewing opposition led by the socialist leader Jayaprakash Narayan (JP) to Indira's rule, the ...

  • Fed Up: The Impunity of Central Banks
    • Abstract: September 29, 2008, was one of the strangest days in the recent history of capitalism. The investment bank Lehman Brothers had failed two weeks earlier in the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history, and Washington Mutual had failed after a bank run on the 26th. Insurance giant AIG was bailed out on the 30th. Global credit markets were paralyzed, stock markets were in vertiginous collapse, and the entire international financial system was at risk. Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. approached Congress with the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act and the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), which together granted the government sweeping and unspecified emergency powers. On September 29, a little over ... Read More

  • Norwegian Mood
    • Abstract: Norwegian author Dag Solstad's second novel, Arild Asnes, 1970 (1971), chronicles the political growing pains of a young writer. Arild Asnes is twenty-eight years old. He has written books and essays, and he longs to do more for the socialist cause. Returning home to Norway, one of the world's foremost social democratic welfare states, after a trip abroad, he initially finds the task impossible. He sees in everyone and everything only an insidious inertia. Asnes succumbs to it, too. "He lived in a capitalist society. He was a socialist. He was free," Solstad writes. "That attached something absurd to him. This absurdity undermined everything he said, everything he wrote."Asnes becomes a communist and associates ... Read More

  • Solidarity's Promise
    • Abstract: In the photo above, taken on May 1, 1989, Jacek Kuroń, a leader of the democratic opposition in Poland, marched with Solidarity, a movement he was instrumental in building. The demonstration came on the eve of victory for Poland's anti-authoritarian opposition. Thirty years after Solidarity finally ended bureaucratic single-party rule, we can appreciate both its achievement as well as its unfulfilled promise.One mark of that unrealized potential are three letters printed on the banner behind Kuroń, FSO, the acronym for Poland's most famous car factory, located in Warsaw. It was here, in 1956, that Kuroń and Karol Modzelewski came to unite students and workers around the struggle for a socialist democracy.The FSO ... Read More

  • Why the Left Needs Liberals
    • Abstract: The revival of democratic socialism in the United States is a marvelous thing: it has helped spur mass opposition to corporate power, persuaded a majority of Americans to endorse Medicare for All, and inspired its adherents to run competitive races for every office from city council to the presidency. But the surge has also emboldened some on the left to echo an old charge that will do its future prospects no good: "elite" liberals are a major obstacle to achieving the changes we need.Of course, Nancy Pelosi and Democratic governors like Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo will never endorse a vision of radical equality, and the reforms they favor, if enacted, might well strengthen the capitalist system rather than ...

  • What's Left of Generation X
    • Abstract: Beto O'Rourke, left, on the cover of his band Foss's 1993 EP The El Paso PussycatsFor those of us born between the mid-1960s and the early 1980s, the spate of Gen X reminiscences that have appeared over the past few months may have triggered consumer nostalgia (the Sony Walkman looks so quaint!), soul-searching, or lingering irritation. One never feels older than when reading a tribute penned by a twenty-something in the New York Times exploring how profoundly strange—almost unimaginable, really—it must have been to live in that glacial-paced era before smart-phones and the internet. Jason Wilson, writing in the Guardian, urges us to reclaim "irony and gloom" as features of cultural resilience, making the case for ... Read More

  • Can Conservatives Write Good U.S. History'
    • Abstract: Conservative scholars who try to make sense of U.S. history face two daunting challenges. The first is their marginality in the profession itself. They want to persuade readers that the nation's past supports their convictions about the present. But liberal and left-wing scholars have dominated the field for decades; they write nearly all the respected monographs, while the late Howard Zinn's ardently damning A People's History of the United States has sold well over 2 million copies since it was first published in 1980.Then there is the Trump factor. The racist would-be tyrant with the adoring right-wing base clearly knows little and cares less about what actually happened in the America he imagines was so great. ... Read More

  • Lifestyle Migrants
    • Abstract: I attended a weekend seminar in April, "Fast Track Your Retirement Overseas, 2019," hosted by International Living (//.), a magazine that for the last forty years has sold the idea of better living abroad. Clutching a "welcome pack" tote bag, I joined an eager cadre making its way into the exhibit hall of an Orlando hotel. In exchange for approximately $1,000, conference organizers had promised not only to "reinforce [our] dream" of retiring abroad, but also to explain "how to make it happen." We would learn to navigate cross-border legal status, tax laws, property transactions, banking, investment, and cultural attitudes, while acquiring strategies for maximizing profits and avoiding frustrations. We would also ... Read More

  • Rural America Reimagined: Introduction
    • Abstract: For many Americans, rural life is an increasingly obscure abstraction. The United States became a majority-urban country in the 1910s, and since then rural places have accounted for an ever-smaller fraction of the nation's residents. The rising industries of the modern economy, and the wealthy communities that surround them, are disproportionately located in a handful of "winner-take-all" cities. Virtually all of the most influential engines of cultural production, from magazines to film studios, are oriented toward metropolitan markets. Meanwhile, the disappearance of small-town newspapers has left behind what the Columbia Journalism Review recently described as "news deserts"—places like Dodge County, Minnesota ... Read More

  • Scapegoat Country
    • Abstract: In the rural town of Fergus Falls, Minnesota, there is one movie theater, and it played American Sniper for two years. Locals hated Mexican immigrants and prayed for Trump on Sundays; their town manager was a virgin who thought Hillary Clinton wanted to steal his guns. With anecdotes like these, the German journalist Claas Relotius painted the scene of a regressive and even frightening place in a 2017 article for Der Spiegel. At a "Western evening," the townsfolk dressed up in cowboy gear and danced to country music. After all, what else is there to do in a small, scary town deep inside a lonely forest'Plenty, the residents of Fergus Falls responded. In a self-published Medium piece, locals Michele Anderson and ... Read More

  • Filming the Black Belt: An Interview with RaMell Ross
    • Abstract: In a year when two major studio films—BlacKkKlansman and Green Book-dominated debates about race and the movies, RaMell Ross's extraordinary 2018 debut, Hale County This Morning, This Evening, can sometimes feel like it was made on another planet. Elusive, while those other movies played like blunt instruments; unsettling, while BlacKkKlansman and Green Book gave their respective audiences exactly what they paid for; Ross's documentary about two young black men and the Southern county where they live moves to a different rhythm altogether. A photographer by training, Ross brings to his work an imagist's appreciation for color, composition, and the "luminous detail," producing a tone poem to a rural black experience ... Read More

  • What Makes a Place Rural'
    • Abstract: Since "rural" is, at its most basic, a geographic distinction, it seems as though whatever other difficulties we might have pinpointing the essence of rural America, we should at least have a relatively easy time placing it on the map. Yet if we begin looking for a convenient cartographic borderline where the city ends and rural life begins, we find not only that these categories evade convenient definitions, but also that the ways Americans orient themselves in terms of politics and culture have a complicated and by no means deterministic relationship with how they orient themselves in terms of geography.The practical-minded demographers of the Census Bureau, for instance, can't settle on a single answer about ...
