  • Screen Savior: How Black Mirror Reflects the Present More than the Future

    • Authors: Bryant W. Sculos
      Abstract: Despite the media treatment of Black Mirror as a dystopian series dealing with the (near) future, this essay explores season three of Charlie Brooker's immensely successful Channel 4-turned-Netflix series in order to show how the central themes of the series are actually more concerned with the present than they are with the future. The present that is reflected is, to put it mildly, not very pretty, but it offers the necessarily dark vision of the current conjuncture that we need if we are to fully appreciate where our present tendencies are leading us.

  • Capitalism Rejected is Education Perfected: The Imperfect Examples of
           Tarzan’s New York Adventure and Captain Fantastic

    • Authors: Steven E. Alford
      Abstract: One of the more beguiling films of 2016 was Matt Ross’ Captain Fantastic, a tale about a father raising a brood of children in the Pacific Northwest woods, and the challenges the family faces when it emerges into “civilization” to confront a family crisis. A much earlier film, 1942’s Tarzan’s New York Adventure, shares its narrative structure: Tarzan and Jane must leave their jungle paradise and confront a threat to their family in the canyons of New York. Both films explore the problems associated with parents’ attempt at educating their children. And in both films the families’ pedagogical agenda is configured by the economic structures of their respective cultures.

  • Addressing Seriously the Environmental Crisis: A Bold, “Outside of the
           Box” Suggestion for Addressing Climate Change and other Forms of
           Environmental Destruction

    • Authors: Kim Scipes
      Abstract: Recognizing the severity of the environmental crisis facing humans across the planet, while focusing on the United States, this paper proposes a program that addresses the environmental crisis while providing for economic security for all Americans. It revolves around a drastic reduction of production, and a corresponding limiting of work by each person. It develops and put forth principles that any alternative program must advance, and specifically discusses the rationale for the program presented. In short, while not sure this program would ever be adopted, nonetheless, it is advanced to stimulate further thinking as to how human beings across the planet can mobilize to stave off the existential crisis we all face.

  • Interest Groups and U.S. Foreign Policy towards Cuba: the Restoration of
           Capitalism in Cuba and the Changing Interest Group Politics

    • Authors: Canberk Koçak
      Abstract: The Cuban-American lobby successfully influenced Congress and various presidential administrations from the early 1980s until nearly the end of the century on U.S. foreign policy towards Cuba. Although two major events, the passage of the Trade Sanction Reform and Export Enhancement Act of 2000, and the Elián González affair of the same year, dramatically reduced the power of this conservative ethnic interest group, its influence continued during the George W. Bush presidency. Despite the lobby’s active role, since 2008 the opposition of several political actors towards the sanctions regime, such as the agribusiness lobby, the administration of Barack Obama, and a significant number of Congressmen from both major parties, created an environment of major competition between two camps with distinct policy agendas. With the focus on the parallelism between the economic reforms on the island, and the changing American interest group politics, this paper seeks to study the determinants of the embargoes continuity in the 21st century, and the conditions that shape the new policy announced by the Obama administration in late 2014.

  • Parenting for Progress: Reflections on Matt Ross’s Captain Fantastic

    • Authors: Bryant W. Sculos
      Abstract: Matt Ross's film Captain Fantastic explores the difficulties of raising one's kids to be critical of modern capitalistic society. This essay explores the parenting lessons that can be taken from the film in connection with contemporary politics and protest movements. As people who are concerned with social justice, this essay attempts to think through the question: how should we be raising our children in these tormented, unjust times?

  • Trump’s Ponzi Scheme Victory

    • Authors: Ronald W. Cox
      Abstract: Donald Trump campaigned as an economic nationalist but has surrounded himself with a transnational corporate transition team that supports policies of neoliberal capitalism. These include tax breaks for the rich and for corporations, further privatization of public services, deregulation and the reduction of the social safety net. Trump used the rhetoric of an "anti-politician" to conceal his real policy agenda, and appealed directly to sections of the white working class that rejected Hillary Clinton's corporate centrism.

  • Black Lives Matter or, How to Think Like an Anarchist

    • Authors: Joaquin A. Pedroso
      Abstract: Since February of 2012 a social movement clamoring for racial justice took the country by storm. Black Lives Matter (BLM) evolved into a movement and a diffuse network of social justice activists who have worked tirelessly to both reform the inherently discriminatory and abusive police practices endemic to the American justice system and sought to build alternative forms of community that would immediately improve the lives of black people in America. Members of the conservative establishment have called out Black Lives matter as being "anarchist" in nature. Indeed, these conservative critics are right in more ways than one. BLM approaches social justice from the parallel concerns of building community and influencing policy. This twin approach seeks to capture, at least parts of, the state in order to combat corporate power and abuses of the state security apparatus all the while building parallel and alternative forms of community independent from these same structures. In doing so, BLM endeavors to both maintain intellectual and political independence and transcend the state centric horizon of legibility and legitimacy inherent in our politics as well as echoes the rich tradition of anarchism.

  • My Students Are Terrified: Teaching in the Days after Trump

    • Authors: Bryant W. Sculos
      Abstract: After the election of Donald Trump, politically-engaged teaching has taken on a new importance--and difficulty. We don't know what Trump's presidency will mean in terms of policy, but we do know what that presidency already stands for: bigotry, exclusion, hate, and injustice. This short piece is an autoethnography of the author's initial experience teaching shortly after Trump's victory and his thoughts on how we should proceed politically, inside and outside the classroom.

  • Sacked for Dollars: The Exploitation of College Football Players in the
           Southeastern Conference

    • Authors: Ramsey Dahab
      Abstract: This study seeks to answer if academic clustering occurs in the SEC and if race and field value are significant indicators of this phenomena. The academic majors players select or are steered towards may lend credence to the claim that universities possess an avenue for fast tracking an athlete’s eligibility status. At stake in college football’s competitive market are complex streams of revenue ranging from television exposure and merchandise sales to increased student applications and alumni contributions. This market places enormous pressure on SEC football programs to not only keep pace with other programs within the conference, but more importantly, to increase market share by ensuring only elite athletes are recruited, signed, and developed into top performers for the conference. The on-the-field product, then, serves as a means for top programs to access lucrative revenue streams made available through college football’s popularity, marketability, and merchandising. The student-athlete becomes the lynch-pin driving this multi-billion dollar industry. Therefore, we asked the following questions: 1) Are SEC football players clustered into academic majors? 2) If clustering exists, does it differ according to race? 3) If clustering exists, does field value determine which players get clustered? Our findings, in which the majority of starters and key contributors were obtained from only a few majors, support the claim that Universities possess mechanisms that reinforce the systemic foreclosure of a student-athlete's educational freedom.

  • US Foreign Policy, Business NGOs and Low-Intensity Democracy

    • Authors: Ronald W. Cox
      Abstract: U.S. intervention in developing countries has routinely enlisted the assistance of corporate NGOs whose activities in civil society are often an extension of U.S. policy objectives. The pattern of collaboration between the U.S. government and NGOs has included electoral intervention, destabilization campaigns, and support for pro-U.S. governing coalitions. The U.S.-NGO relationship has also been used to legitimize elections in highly militarized environments where conflict between opposing interests undermines democratic accountability.

  • Capital Revenge: Ideologiekritik and The Revenant

    • Authors: Bryant W. Sculos
      Abstract: Though superficially The Revenant is an expertly written, acted, and directed new age Western about one man's wild quest for revenge. It is all of those things to be sure, but this critical review essay goes deeper and explores the ideological dimensions of the film, arguing that the film's main antagonist is actually a capitalistic hero representing the mindless application of the endless drive for profit and wealth. Furthermore, this essay concludes with the dialectical assertion that it is precisely because of the audience's situatedness within the ideological confines of capitalism that they are able to view the antagonist as the villain of the film.

  • Marx at the Gold Coast: Reflections on Teaching and the Confrontation with

    • Authors: Allan Ardill
      Abstract: This article engages with Marx in Miami and the strategies and pedagogical experiences of teaching Marx and Marxism. It relates the experience of teaching Marxism in a compulsory law course at the Gold Coast, Australia. Marx rarely makes an appearance in law schools and this poses particular challenges when it is taught to politically conservative students. Therefore the article supplies a case for teaching Marx arguing why it is not just appropriate for lawyers but irresponsible to exclude it.

  • Religion and Class

    • Authors: Joerg Rieger
      Abstract: While analyses of gender, ethnicity, and race have become widely accepted and are put to use in religious and theological studies, this is not the case with the notion of class. Despite the fact that race, gender, and class are often mentioned together, there is very little sustained reflection on class. Reflections on race and gender in religious and theological studies, while addressing issues of power, rarely include reflections on class. In the rare cases when class is addressed, especially in the United States, it is connected to notions of poverty, social stratification, or income differentials, which are insufficient at best and misleading at worst. Of course, investigating class does not mean turning one’s back to matters of gender, ethnicity and race. The intersectionality of these various factors is non-negotiable, yet without deeper understandings of class the analysis of the other factors is likely to suffer.

  • The Political Economy of a Transnational Elite in the [Persian] Gulf
           Cooperation Council (GCC)

    • Authors: Seyed Ahmad Mirtaheri
      Abstract: Transnational elites are sometimes considered as one of significant shadow forces in shaping the global economy. Their impacts, however, may differ from one region to another. This paper aims at assessing and defining the recent role played by transnational elites in the [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and the regional and global significance of their power struggle. Following the discussion of the GCC’s history in the context of globalization studies, this paper aims to show that one cannot analyze the GCC and its impacts without taking into account the GCC’s transnational elites and their power struggles. These struggles are among the root causes of many elements of economic and geopolitical status quo in the Persian Gulf region. Three factors are important in this regard. The first is the significant role played by petrodollars controlled by the GCC’s transnational elite. The second factor is the visible participation western educational system in the GCC. The third factor is the presence of transnational labor class. Finally, the paper will conclude with a brief discussion of how the GCC national economies are integrating into global economy through the GCC transnational elites.

  • The Pitfalls and Possibilities of Socialist Transformation: The Case of

    • Authors: Martin Hart-Landsberg
      Abstract: With its 2015 electoral victory in Greece, Syriza became the first left political party to lead a European government since the founding of the European Union. As such, its eventual capitulation to the demands of the Troika was a bitter development, and not only for the people of Greece. Because the need for change remains as great as ever, and efforts at electoral-based transformations continue, especially in Europe, this paper seeks to assess the Greek experience, and in particular Syriza’s political options and choices, in order to help activists more effectively respond to the challenges faced when confronting capitalist power.Section 1 examines how Greece’s membership in the euro area promoted an increasingly fragile and unsustainable economic expansion over the period 2001 to 2007. Section 2 discusses the role of the Troika in Greece’s 2008 to 2014 downward spiral into depression. Section 3 discusses the ways in which popular Greek resistance to their country’s crisis helped to shape and nourish Syriza as a new type of left political organization, “a mass connective party.” Section 4 critically analyzes the Syriza-led government’s political choices, highlighting alternative policies not chosen that might have helped the government break the Troika’s strangle hold over the Greek economy and further radicalize the Greek population. Section 5 concludes with a presentation of five lessons from the Greek experience of relevance for future struggles.
