  • All Shook Up: The Politics of Cultural Appropriation
    • Abstract: Novelist Ralph Ellison poses for a portrait in Harlem in 1966. (David Attie/Getty Images)I first heard the phrase "Stay in your lane" a few years ago, in a writing workshop I was teaching. We were talking about a story that a student in the group, an Asian-American man, had written about an African-American family.There was a lot to criticize about the story, including an abundance of clichés about the lives of Black Americans. I had expected the class to offer suggestions for improvement. What I hadn't expected was that some students would tell the writer that he shouldn't have written the story at all. As one of them put it, if a member of a relatively privileged group writes a story about a member of a ... Read More

  • The Law and Justice Party's Moral Pseudo-Revolution
    • Abstract: Andrzej Duda of the Law and Justice Party celebrates his presidential victory with supporters on July 12. (Maja Hitij/Getty Images)In July, Andrzej Duda of the Law and Justice Party (PiS) was elected to a second presidential term in Poland, in a narrow victory over Rafał Trzaskowski of the right-liberal Civic Platform (PO). PiS and its satellite parties in the "United Right" coalition will not be blocked by an adversarial head of state. The high turnout, at 68 percent, gives the right-nationalist party an even greater mandate.The election split Poland almost down the middle: 51 percent for the incumbent president, 49 percent for Trzaskowski. The divide has been explained in both the Western and Polish media by a ... Read More

  • Salute to Michael Kazin
    • Abstract: Illustration by Lyra Walsh FuchsIn his first Editor's Page for Dissent in 2009, Michael Kazin commented on the disappointment many felt after the election of Barack Obama. "His 2008 campaign, remarkable as it was, did not revive the grassroots Left," he wrote. "Unions do what they can, but most still struggle to survive. And the fragmented nature of the progressive blogs and the nongovernmental organizations cannot generate the visibility or influence of a growing insurgency."What a difference eleven years makes! The political terrain has transformed, and the grassroots left has been reborn. Although we still face disappointments and defeats, amid horrors old and new, Dissent (and dissent) has grown.Michael has ... Read More

  • A New Direction for U.S. Foreign Policy in Africa
    • Abstract: President Trump's approach to Africa rightly elicits outrage. His conception of the continent ranges from disinterest—he has only mentioned it three times out of around 20,000 tweets—to outright contempt, such as when he referred to African nations as "shithole countries." For eighteen months, the office of the assistant secretary of state for African affairs was empty or occupied by a temporary official. Almost two years into his administration, there was no ambassador deployed to twenty of Africa's fifty-four countries. Trump has only met with two heads of state from sub-Saharan Africa in the White House. He has proposed large budget cuts for humanitarian funding—including for the flagship President's Emergency ...

  • Essential and Untrusted
    • Abstract: Care-work platforms incentivize workers to expose themselves to establish their trustworthiness. (John Michael Snowden)After months of shutdowns to slow the spread of COVID-19, businesses face intense pressure to restore pre-pandemic productivity and profitability. With no vaccine in sight, many are undertaking novel efforts to prevent workers from getting sick, and to prevent sick workers from infecting others. One tool employers have turned to is the thermal camera, which promises to detect elevated temperatures.The ACLU and other critics have noted the limited effectiveness of temperature screening, while warning about the invasiveness of this practice. The use of thermal cameras, like other technologies of ... Read More

  • "I Hope Our Daughters Will Not Be Punished"
    • Abstract: Kwaneta Yatrice HarrisIn a solitary cell in a central Texas prison, as a global pandemic and protests raged, Kwaneta Yatrice Harris was eating cold bologna sandwiches on the better days. On the worst days, she was given nutraloaf, also known as discipline cake: a rectangle of meat, potatoes, margarine, syrup, liquified egg, and anonymous vegetable.The food was slid through the door of a room the size of a walk-in closet where Harris has been held since 2016. Eventually, she will be returned to a general population unit to serve the rest of her sentence, the estimated end of which is in 2058, when she will be eighty-six. Throughout her time in prison, Harris, like many incarcerated people, has been subject to ... Read More

  • Bodies on the Line
    • Abstract: In the United States, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought the crisis of work and of care—of production and social reproduction—to new extremes. This summer, unemployment reached record levels. Essential workers were called on not only to tend to the sick, but to deliver groceries, collect trash, and drive buses—to perform tasks that have always been hard and undervalued, but now entail a health risk every time you clock on. Capitalist society depends on this essential work—carried out by nursing assistants, transportation workers, and caretakers—and its dangers are distributed unevenly, across divisions of race, class, and gender. For decades, socialist feminists have brought these realities to our attention; the ... Read More

           Shantonia Jackson
    • Abstract: Shantonia Jackson's colleague Camelia Kirkwood died during the pandemic, weeks before her planned retirement. (John MIchael Snowden)The category that the Census calls "health care and social assistance" is the largest sector of employment in the country, accounting for about one in seven jobs nationwide. It encompasses hospitals, clinics, labs, long-term care facilities, home care, and social work agencies. This sector makes up an enormous proportion of low-wage employment growth in the United States over the past several decades: in the bottom quintile of the wage structure, according to sociologist Rachel Dwyer, a majority of new jobs since the 1980s have been care jobs of some kind. This labor market draws ... Read More

  • Tenant Unions for the Future
    • Abstract: tenant activists in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, on July 31, 2020 (Scott Heins/ Getty Images)With the arrival of the pandemic, staying home became emergency work for a failing state. Amid disastrous negligence at every level of government, one of the most ordinary facts of life in capitalism—rent—suddenly appeared clearly as an affront. "One section of society here demands a tribute from the other for the very right to live on the earth," Marx wrote of landlords. In the early spring, with state-level and nationwide eviction moratoriums and tenant protections in place, it seemed like there had never been a better time to refuse these bad terms.Calls to rent strike brought grassroots tenant unions to the foreground. ...

The worker center has been organizing with low-wage workers of color, many of them immigrants, in Minneapolis since 2007, including in the retail, cleaning, and fast-food sectors. Its members have been deeply involved in protesting the ongoing racial inequality and violent policing in the Twin Cities, and so its offices have become one of many hubs for local activists, doing mutual aid as well as joining the protests in ...

  • Irving Howe: A Socialist Life
    • Abstract: Irving Howe (Jill Krementz)Walking on Manhattan's Upper West Side one chilly day in the 1980s—it was not long after a suggestion came from within the Reagan administration that ketchup replace vegetables in school lunches to save money—Irving Howe made a remark to me that captured a great deal about his own political journey: "I know how to debate with these guys about politics and economics, but how do you argue with social meanness'"Howe, whose centennial we commemorate this year and who was Dissent's founding spirit, could have easily launched into a dissection of capitalism. His political awakening began in the 1930s and 1940s as a teenaged Marxist. A half century later his aversions hadn't much changed, but ... Read More

  • Central America Dismantles Democracy
    • Abstract: On February 9, just weeks before the coronavirus hit El Salvador, President Nayib Bukele forced his way into the Legislative Assembly surrounded by armed soldiers. He had spent the previous days warning lawmakers that he had constitutional grounds to dissolve the legislative body if it didn't approve a security loan he was asking for, paving the way for an attempted coup. He believed his approval rating (at that point over 90 percent) gave him enough leverage to get away with it. Bukele sat in the seat reserved for the chairperson of the assembly, hit a gong to open the almost empty legislative session he had summoned, and prayed. Then he suddenly left the hall and told hundreds of followers waiting outside that ... Read More

  • Digital Piecework
    • Abstract: In 1975 women in Iceland went on strike, bringing the entire nation to a standstill. For one full day, referred to now as "the long Friday," 90 percent of women didn't show up to their jobs, and refused to cook, clean, or look after children and the elderly. Men scrambled—overwhelming restaurants with food orders and working longer and harder than usual in an attempt to do both care work and their paid work. The point of the strike was to draw attention to what socialist feminists had been arguing for decades: economies are built upon women's unpaid labor. Their action showed how capitalism has a propensity to make invisible the labor of people with little political power—both by refusing to recognize it as work ... Read More

  • Mr. In-Between
    • Abstract: A little more than thirty years ago, I received one of Irving Howe's famous little postcards. "Shouldn't you be writing for us'" was all he said—and all he needed to say. I had been reading the magazine since the late 1960s, arguing with as many of the pieces as I agreed with. But I still tore through every issue as soon as it arrived in the mail. To my mind, no publication on the American left was so intelligent, so well-written, and so endlessly provocative. I still think that's true today.But after this issue, my name will appear next to Irving's on the masthead where the editors emeriti are listed. A dozen years after Michael Walzer asked me to join him as co-editor, I am leaving that task to the wise and ... Read More

  • The Death of Hannah Fizer
    • Abstract: Flowers placed at the spot where Hannah Fizer was killed in Sedalia, MissouriHannah Fizer was driving to work at a convenience store in Sedalia, Missouri, late on a Saturday night in June when a police officer pulled her over for running a red light. According to police reports, Fizer was "noncompliant" and threatened to shoot the officer, so the officer shot and killed her. In fact, Fizer did not have a gun and, now that she is dead, cannot tell her side of the story. Her friends and family want answers, and they want justice. "She was a beautiful person," a coworker recalled.Amid widespread protests against police killings of black people, it seems a familiar story: an unarmed person smart-mouths a police officer ...

  • Acceptance Without Rancor: A Father–Son Conversation About Black
           Lives Matter
    • Abstract: A Mattson family portrait (Lyra Walsh Fuchs)It's uplifting to hear my son, Jay, talk to reporters. They wanted to understand how Black Lives Matter protests had erupted in Missoula, Montana, soon after the murder of George Floyd. Jay was facing down pickup truck drivers who brandished guns and flew Trump flags. Between speaking through bull horns and vigorous chanting, my twenty-one-year-old son answered a journalist's query about why he was there: Just being a Black man, there's part of me that … I have to. For my own personal safety, and the safety of my friends and future generations. I feel like it's my responsibility to be here. His words sounded calm, cool, and deliberative, but I thought they might also ... Read More

  • The Hustle Economy
    • Abstract: The futurism of technology discourse is ahistorical and ideological. Tech utopianism disembeds the future from the political economies that produce its social relations, and it obscures the machinations of racial capitalism. When I was recently asked to consider how digital technologies shape "economic opportunity" and the "future of work," I started by examining what we mean by economic opportunity, and what counts as work.In lay terms, economic opportunity in the future of work looks like hustling. Hustling traditionally refers to income-generating activities that occur in the informal economy. It has also become synonymous with a type of job-adjacent work that looks like it is embedded in the formal economy but ... Read More

  • Monetary Democracy
    • Abstract: The Bank of North Dakota (BND) looks like a typical bank. Its main building has the design of a glass-and-steel corporate headquarters, the boardroom sitting atop a façade that leans forward like the prow of a ship. It points west, of course, because that is the traditional direction of opportunity in America. The bank's most recent annual report, from 2018, begins with a cascade of business catchwords that promise "quality, sound financial services," a "peoplecentered" ethos, and the ability to "empower individuals." It all sounds very on-brand for the corporate world. But turn a couple of pages, and you will discover that BND is actually quite unique: it is the only state-owned bank in the country.The economic ... Read More

  • Before Operation Dixie
    • Abstract: Amid the continuing devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic, massive street protests against police brutality, and rising demands to end systemic racism in U.S. society and politics, a new book by the political scientist Michael Goldfield provides a glimmer of hope based upon his detailed analysis of labor struggles in the South during the Great Depression through the postwar years. According to Goldfield, the fate of the Southern labor movement holds "the golden key" not only for understanding how the nation took a sharp right turn during the latter part of the century, but also for transforming the economy and politics of the United States today.Most studies of the 1930s and 1940s stress the failure of the Southern ...

  • The Murder of a Witch
    • Abstract: Several years ago, a local Veracruz paper carried news of a horrific murder. A woman had been found mutilated, floating face up in the river. It was yet another case of femicide in a country with one of the highest rates in the world—a rate that has doubled in the last five years. Mexican activists have recently ramped up the scale and urgency of decades-long protests against officials and their reluctance, or in some cases active resistance, to address the problem: this past spring, thousands of Mexican women went on strike in the capital to protest the ongoing violence. The woman murdered in Veracruz had been known locally as "the Witch." She was killed by her ex-lover after he became convinced that she was ... Read More

  • Litigation for the People
    • Abstract: Can anti-discrimination litigation be a tool for social change' For many years, a contingent on the academic left contended that the answer is no. The Critical Legal Studies movement (CLS) of the 1970s and '80s argued that using litigation to enforce rights privileged lawyers, fed an alienating and individualized discourse, and ultimately had a depoliticizing effect. CLS adherents believed that anti-discrimination laws often legitimated, rather than challenged, the fundamental inequalities of society.Although CLS is no longer a presence in law schools, its ideas live on. Its critique of rights litigation has been bolstered by the opposition to identity politics from some on the left. In the words of Nancy Fraser ... Read More

  • Cowboy Confederates
    • Abstract: The Clint Eastwood Western The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976), a genre-defining fantasy of anti-government violence, finds redemption for the failed ideas of the white South in the bloody plains of the American West. Eastwood's character, and the entire idea of the American West in the film, are the product of two of the biggest blows against white supremacy in U.S. history: the Civil War and the civil rights movements. The book on which it was based, The Rebel Outlaw: Josey Wales (1972), was written by a former Klansman named Asa Earl Carter who went by the pen name Forrest Carter (a nod to Confederate hero and Grand Wizard of the postbellum Ku Klux Klan, Nathan Bedford Forrest).Clint Eastwood in the 1976 Western The ...

  • Living Constitutions
    • Abstract: Last December, mass demonstrations erupted across India in response to new legislation that granted a fast track to citizenship for a number of religious groups but excluded Muslims. A violent crackdown followed. Protesters turned to the country's seventy-year-old Constitution for a moral language to critique both the anti-Muslim legislation and the state's repression of dissent. Life-size cutouts of its chief drafter, Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, and other members of the Constituent Assembly accompanied marchers on the streets. Mass readings of the Constitution's preamble were staged in different languages. Live artwork, poetry, and songs disseminated this appeal to the Constitution beyond the gatherings on Twitter ...
