The Sunset of Neoliberalism

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Max B. Sawicky, Jacobin Magazine — Cheer up. The Left is winning the battle of ideas. Ideas are the basis for organization, and organization is prior to change. The signs are in the evolution of statements and platforms presented by Democratic presidential candidates. As the economist John Maynard Keynes wrote, eighty and some years ago: Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are…

Trump Notwithstanding, Blacks Not Biden Should Apologize for the Crime Bill

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — At first glance, Trump’s assertion that Blacks won’t and shouldn’t vote for 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden because he backed the 1994 crime bill is ridiculous. Forget the silliness behind this since it’s Trump and that’s to be expected. But underneath his assertion is that somehow he is a better deal for Blacks when it comes to a more enlightened stance on dealing with…

Hardly a National Election When Six States Decide Who Wins the White House

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — Let’s crunch some numbers in the 2016 presidential election. Trump and rival Hillary Clinton made a combined 250 plus official campaign vote trips to Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin.

White Supremacist Men See White Manhood Under Siege

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Randy Blazak — I spent most of 1989 in Florida, hanging out with a group of skinheads who hated “The Cosby Show.” The white supremacists I embedded with for my research complained routinely not about a global Jewish cabal they believed ran the real world but about Cosby’s fictional TV family.

But today foreign and domestic policy seem inextricably linked, not least because our adversary in the Kremlin…
