  • The End of the Chilean Fantasy
    • Abstract: In early October 2019, large groups of high schoolers, outraged at an increase in the price of public transportation, coordinated mass subway fare evasions in Santiago. The campaign soon sparked massive protests across Chile. On October 18, a day that now marks the beginning of a Chilean Spring, angry protesters took over the capital, where they blocked streets and set metro stations on fire. City authorities closed the subway, leaving the majority of commuters stranded. President Sebastián Piñera imposed a state of emergency, and the army took control of major cities—something that hadn't happened since the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet ended in 1990.In a statement Piñera said: "We are at war with a powerful ...

  • A Ballad of Unchecked Dread
    • Abstract: In Jenny Offill's 2014 novel Dept. of Speculation, a troubled marriage triggers a crisis in perception. How did her husband's infidelity, the protagonist wonders, go unnoticed' "I am not very observant," she thinks, but the truth is that there wasn't much to observe. Offill's form, whereby narrative proceeds as a series of intimations, teaches us that destabilizing change doesn't appear as discrete signs, but rather hangs in the air. Our most intimate relationships are subject to atmospheric shifts that we don't know so much as feel on the level of the body. When the narrator finally realizes her husband's infidelity, it is only after she reconsiders a handful of disparate interactions. She remembers an innocent ... Read More

  • Remnants of the New Deal Order
    • Abstract: For a long time, our master narrative of U.S. history in the twentieth century has been centered on the rise and fall of the New Deal order: from Roosevelt to Reagan, Keynes to Friedman, General Motors to Walmart. The story is usually one of declension. The flourishing of liberalism, labor unions, and social awareness in the mid-twentieth century ends with the resurgence of laissez-faire at its conclusion. More recent historians have been sharply critical of this narrative, highlighting phenomena that cut across the normal divide: exploring the bipartisan history of the carceral state, the "straight state," the public-private partnerships that defined the New Deal just as much as neoliberalism, the ways that ...

  • Up from Polarization
    • Abstract: It was late on July 27, 2004, after the second night of the Democratic National Convention. Twenty or so bloggers, newly credentialed to cover the proceedings, had gathered at a bar outside Harvard Square. Everyone was gobsmacked by Barack Obama's keynote. "We worship an awesome God in the Blue States, and we don't like federal agents poking around in our libraries in the Red States. We coach Little League in the Blue States and, yes, we've got some gay friends in the Red States." The bloggers, almost all young, mostly male, knew one another online, but most had never met in person. A friend invited me to tag along as an interloper.The crowd basked in the Obama glow and channeled its energy. We could fight as ... Read More

  • Storming the Castle
    • Abstract: Phyllis Schlafly, the subject of a new Hulu miniseries starring Cate Blanchett, used to seem weird. In a political culture that fetishized consensus, she was a one-woman polarization machine. During the campaign against the Equal Rights Amendment that turned her into a national celebrity, she took to opening rallies by thanking her husband for letting her speak. "I always like to say that," she explained, "because it makes the libs so mad."She was, in short, a troll. But Schlafly wanted to do more than trigger the libs. A shrewd political organizer, she saw the Trump campaign as the latest chapter in her lifelong crusade against the Republican establishment. GOP moderates fought her at each step of the way. When ...

  • The Nationalist Roots of White Evangelical Politics
    • Abstract: White evangelicals remain some of Donald Trump's most steadfast supporters. Their strong support for the president in the last election—roughly 81 percent voted for him—puzzled many liberals; they found it hypocritical for evangelicals to support someone whose lifestyle so egregiously contradicts their puritanical moralism. But the group that seemed most surprised was the evangelical leadership.Take Daniel Reid, former editor of InterVarsity Press, one of the major evangelical publishing houses: "How can Trump have gotten eighty-one percent' I don't know a single person at InterVarsity who voted for Trump." Mark Galli, the former editor-in-chief of Christianity Today—the flagship magazine of evangelical ... Read More

  • What It Means to Be Liberal
    • Abstract: Is liberalism an "ism" like all the other "isms"' I think it once was. In the nineteenth century and for some years in the twentieth, liberalism was an encompassing ideology: free markets, free trade, free speech, open borders, a minimal state, radical individualism, civil liberty, religious toleration, minority rights. But this ideology is now called libertarianism, and most of the people who identify themselves as liberals don't accept it—at least, not all of it. Liberalism in Europe today is represented by political parties like the German Free Democratic Party that are libertarian and right-wing, but also by parties like the Liberal Democrats in the UK that stand uneasily between conservatives and socialists ...

  • Holy War: Latin America's Far Right
    • Abstract: By any measure, the extreme right is ascendant in Latin America. In Brazil, president Jair Bolsonaro boasts of being a proud homophobe, promises to banish "red outlaws," insists that his country is a "Christian nation," and sings the praises of the Cold War–era military dictatorship, his only critique being that it tended to torture dissidents instead of killing them outright. In Chile, billionaire president Sebastián Piñera responded to anti-austerity demonstrations by sending the army into the streets, part of a supposed "war against a powerful enemy," recycling Augusto Pinochet's language in effectively giving carte blanche to security forces as they blinded hundreds of demonstrators with rubber bullets. And in ... Read More

  • What the New MoMA Leaves Out
    • Abstract: Since the newly revamped Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) reopened last October, it has received near-universal acclaim. For Roberta Smith, art critic for the New York Times, the expansion opens a "second round of greatness," one that tells a "different, more inclusive, less definitive story" about modern art than its predecessor. Hal Foster, writing in the London Review of Books, praises the expansion for complicating "the usual stories of modernist and contemporary art with a deepened attention to different cultural traditions as well as key technological transformations." This account, Foster adds, "is both more accurate and more attractive, especially to young people of diverse backgrounds and media competencies." ... Read More

  • The Once and Future Right
    • Abstract: In a widely read New Republic article published in the first days of Barack Obama's presidency, Sam Tanenhaus, a journalist and biographer of Whittaker Chambers and William F. Buckley, Jr., declared that "Conservatism Is Dead."He argued that advocates of the postwar conservative orthodoxy—a "fusion" of libertarian economics, anti-communism, and Christian traditionalism—could provide no satisfactory answers for Americans struggling with precarious employment and the collapse of the housing bubble. For Tanenhaus, it was Obama who represented the politics of Burkean compromise best suited to a world in crisis and flux. Out of touch with its times, conservatism, he predicted, would be relegated to the wilderness ... Read More

  • Why We Left the Right
    • Abstract: When we began putting together an issue on the future of the right, it seemed like those who had conservative pasts might be a source of insight. As an ex-conservative who grew up in Trump Country, a topic I've written about for Dissent ("Leaving Conservatism Behind," Summer 2016), I know my biography has figured into my own understanding of this moment. So I spoke with three others with similar backgrounds—Sarah Jones, Maximillian Alvarez, and Daniel Steinmetz-Jenkins—about how we got here and where we think we're headed, drawing on the experiences we had growing up in conservative, religious households.—Matthew SitmanI want to start by asking how your experiences as former conservatives have shaped your ...

  • Morbid Symptoms: An Interview with Ross Douthat
    • Abstract: About a year ago we launched a new podcast, Know Your Enemy, dedicated to critically examining the American right from a left-wing point of view. Episodes range widely, from a deep dive into how the Koch brothers deploy their fortune to influence politics, to an explainer on the rise of the new illiberal right, to a close reading of Norman Podhoretz's Making It. We've also featured a stellar roster of guests such as Rebecca Traister, who explored gender and conservative politics, and Sarah Jones, who talked about how the media covers Trump voters. But until we interviewed New York Times columnist Ross Douthat in January, we hadn't had an actual conservative on the show. Over the course of our discussion, we first ... Read More

  • Bad Romance
    • Abstract: A few years ago, when I was spending most of my time organizing a graduate student union, people kept recommending a book: The Romance of American Communism. It was out of print, but I found a used, ex-library copy for a few dollars on Amazon, hardcover and silver with a giant portrait of the author, Vivian Gornick, on the back. When I finally got around to reading it, after our unionization efforts were quashed, the effect was like listening to a breakup song: this book got me, got what I'd been through, like nothing I'd ever read before. The Communists Gornick had interviewed for the book described feelings and experiences I recognized intimately but had never seen articulated. I put Post-it notes on nearly every ... Read More

  • Nudging Toward Theocracy: Adrian Vermeule's War on Liberalism
    • Abstract: Liberalism has been an easy target in recent years, blamed for everything from climate change to homophobia to racism. Conferences on the crisis of liberalism are as ubiquitous on college campuses as Au Bon Pain. And it is certainly true that, especially since 2008, liberal shibboleths of individual autonomy and human rights have come in for serious criticism from both the right and the left. And yet, as Daniel Luban has recently argued in these pages ("Among the Post-Liberals," Winter 2020), it is also true that this crisis talk is overblown, and that the critique of liberalism is often more rhetorical than real. Many critics begin with an utter parody of the liberal tradition, according to which liberals view ... Read More

  • In Dreams Begin Responsibilities
    • Abstract: I never thought I would live to see a democratic socialist become one of the leading candidates to govern the most powerful nation in history. I confess my choice for this honor would have been someone other than a rather humorless guy with a heart condition who is pushing eighty. But no dream comes true without some concessions to reality.That would be even more true if any socialist who comes after Bernie Sanders were actually elected president. Like any politician in a country as large and diverse—in every way—as the United States, such a leftist would have to build a coalition including millions of people who did not support them in the primaries and are at least mildly apprehensive about what they would do as ...

  • #SocialismSucks: Trump'sTikTok Teens
    • Abstract: In front of a crude green-screen filter displaying iPhone screenshots of Bernie Sanders's immigration platform, a supporter uses a yellow highlighter tool to mark the most important details. Pixels flicker around their head as they explain that Bernie will put a moratorium on all deportations and stop construction of the wall on the first day of his presidency. "This plan is about restoring humanity to a system that's lacked it for too long," they elaborate. The caption reads "BERNIE's IMMIGRATION PLAN IS ."This pro-Bernie post was made on TikTok. The short-form video app has quickly become just as popular as Facebook and Twitter among younger people, in part because of its absurdist humor and viral dance ... Read More

  • Construction Workers and the Gig Economy
    • Abstract: Last September, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 5, which imposes stringent criteria to determine whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor. What may seem like an arcane def-inition of employment law generated enormous controversy. The California Chamber of Commerce, business associations, and gig economy employers strenuously opposed the bill. Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, and other similar companies argued that AB 5 posed a fundamental threat to their business model, one that relies on drivers to operate as independent contractors.The outsized nature of the California economy and the pervasive influence of Silicon Valley drew national attention to the legislative battle. Prior to ... Read More

  • The Rebellion in Catalonia
    • Abstract: The future of Spanish politics depends to a large degree on events in Catalonia, the nation's richest and most rebellious region. Pedro Sánchez, leader of the nation's social-democratic party, the PSOE, became prime minister of Spain in January, as head of a coalition of left-wing parties. But his success at governing with a majority of just two votes rests on the support of Catalan delegates in the Cortes, Spain's national legislature, and their leaders are either in jail or exile.To understand the dilemma, it is necessary to go back in time. Before 2010, the goal of Catalans was autonomy rather than independence. The region had enjoyed considerable autonomy under the Second Republic, which Franco abolished after ... Read More

  • Socialism in One Factory
    • Abstract: In the early 1960s, I wrote an essay for the journal Studies on the Left entitled "Socialism, the Forbidden Word." The world has changed. Thanks to Bernie Sanders and many others, it has again become possible to say publicly, "I am a socialist."But what does "socialism" mean' And how do we make real progress toward it within the confines of a capitalist society' Can socialism take the form of merely changing the distribution of income, or must there also be changes in ownership of the major means of production—what Lenin called capitalism's "commanding heights"'Furthermore, are there social and cultural shifts, beyond economic changes like nationalization, that are needed to bring about a socialist society' And if ...

  • Native Americas
    • Abstract: At my elementary school in Baltimore in the 1990s, we celebrated Thanksgiving in style, with feathered headdresses made of construction paper and stories about Squanto, who taught the Pilgrims to farm. Later, we learned that Native American women made history too: Sacagawea helped Lewis and Clark explore the Louisiana Purchase, while Pocahontas saved John Smith. I can still remember the mournful lyrics of that pseudo-environmentalist ballad from Disney's Pocahontas: "Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain' Can you paint with all the colors of the wind'" The implicit lesson was that we could not. Popular culture trained us to view Native Americans and their presumed unusual talents as relics of the past.In ... Read More
