Resistir al sistema es enfrentarse al horror, “al más frío de todos los monstruos fríos”. La comprensión de ello llegó de forma paralela mientras cientos de cuerpos cercenados eran convertidos en cifras e informes de derechos humanos, y miles de rostros que habitaban trochas y ríos eran condenados al humo indiferente de ciudades convertidas en campos de concentración que infamemente pasaron a ser denominadas como “albergues”. ... read full story / add a comment

La democracia, convertida en falsedad política, es mutación de un invento mediático que aplica control social a poblaciones que terminaron creyendo que los países se transforman sin luchas de pueblos y comunidades que arriesgan la vida en acciones de hecho contra el Estado. Así construyeron modelos mentales para sociedades que olvidan las luchas de sus muertos, a quienes en vida solo profesan odio porque osaron profanar al nuevo ídolo de la mansedumbre: aquella democracia virtual que impone pacifismo a sus súbditos.

We live in a paradoxical world. Much debate on the radical left revolves around multitudes of discontented groups – sometimes lumped together as the 99%, sometimes rebranded as precariat – struggling against an abstract empire and its 1% rulers. Capitalism and class – once serving as a compass to navigate left politics through the apparently chaotic sees of everyday life – have turned into subjects of theoretical debate with little to no connection to political praxis. ... read full story / add a comment

The election of Donald Trump represents one of a series of dramatic political uprisings that together signal a collapse of neoliberal hegemony. These uprisings include the Brexit vote in the United Kingdom, the rejection of the Renzi reforms in Italy, the Bernie Sanders campaign for the Democratic Party nomination in the United States, and rising support for the National Front in France, among others. Although they differ in ideology and goals, these electoral mutinies share a common target: all are rejections of corporate globalization, neoliberalism, and the political establishments that have promoted them. In every case, voters are saying “No!” to the lethal combination of austerity, free trade, predatory debt, and precarious, ill-paid work that characterize financialized capitalism today. Their votes are a response to the structural crisis of this form of capitalism, which first came into full view with the near meltdown of the global financial order in 2008. ... read full story / add a comment

Nunca como ahora tuvo tanta pertinencia aquella desafortunada invención de nuestro vicepresidente. Pues si el supuesto empate tiene sabor a derrota, entonces la figura del “empate técnico” es sólo un amargo consuelo (pretendiendo hacer de la derrota empate, lo técnico resulta una mera alquimia que sueña convertir plomo en oro). Nunca la retórica del empate se hace tan amarga como cuando se pretende disfrazar una derrota que confirma la no correspondencia entre la realidad y su interpretación. En ese sentido, lo técnico encubre una catástrofe: el gigante de bronce se descubre con pies de barro. Marx decía que la historia se repite dos veces, una como tragedia y otra como comedia. Lo que no dijo es que la comedia no es tal para el que la sufre; la tragedia continúa y hasta con más saña (por eso la historia está para aprenderla, no sólo para citarla). ... read full story / add a comment

The current economic, political, and social situation in Venezuela is very complicated, which makes it somewhat difficult for outsiders to make sense of. On the one hand there are many people who defend the Bolivarian revolution, pointing to the successes it has had in reducing poverty and inequality and in increasing citizen participation and self-governance. On the other hand, there is a chorus of critics, not just from the usual suspects on the political right, but often from the left, who criticize the Maduro government's economic management of the country, corruption, the high inflation rate and shortages, and the trial of a high profile opposition politician, who the government accuses of fomenting violence. How did Venezuela get here? What happened since Hugo Chavez's death? Did the project derail, get stuck, hit a speed bump, or crash altogether? In order to answer this question, I will first analyze the origins of the current economic situation. ... read full story / add a comment

Premetto subito che mi piacerebbe assistere al risveglio di una dialettica democratica in questa comunità. (...) All'uopo potrebbe servire Facebook. In un recente passato, ho già avuto occasione di annotare che il limite oggettivo di questo spazio virtuale di confronto e di partecipazione politica, è insito nel mezzo stesso di comunicazione, attualmente circoscritto ad una cerchia ancora elitaria di cittadini che utilizzano abitualmente Internet ed i social network. Comunque, ben venga lo strumento del web in soccorso alla libertà di espressione e di critica, dunque alla convivenza democratica e civile. Invito chiunque ad afferrare il senso di una questione estremamente delicata qual è, appunto, l'istanza o la rivendicazione di una maggiore partecipazione collegiale e democratica proveniente dal basso, vale a dire da settori consistenti della cittadinanza (...), che non deve scadere in futili pretesti per scatenare sterili o rissose polemiche personali.

Once again the radical left petite bourgeoisie has failed.
This is not particular to Greece. It is a general tendency of struggles in many other social formations as well, wherever the petite bourgeoisie instead of the working class is leading the struggle. One lesson to learn is that whenever we persist in hoping that something positive will come from petite bourgeois leadership, however radical they might seem, THE RESULT WILL BE THE SAME: A TOTAL CAPITULATION TO CAPITAL.

Did those who are already raising Lenin from his tomb to render quick judgement on Syriza's abject “world-historic defeat” (without saying much about what victory would look like or require) actually bother to read the rather similar plans that Syriza put forward before the referendum and that were consistently rejected by the EU and IMF “Institutions”? This rejection is what the referendum was about. The resounding OXI was then used by Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to secure the resignation of the leading political representative of the domestic ruling class (and former Prime Minister), Antonis Samaras, and to get all the party leaders with any such claim or ambitions to speak for that class to adopt Syriza's position on the need for debt restructuring and investment funds. One might even say that if there was a class crossover involved here it was the other way around, one that looks more like what Gramsci meant by a hegemonic strategy rather than the way it is presented from the perspective of those standing on Lenin's Tomb. ... read full story / add a comment

Così finalmente, nonostante tutti i meandri, le vie laterali e le deviazioni della storia, la logica delle lotte sociali ha finalmente impresso la sua impronta sulla politica della Turchia. La clamorosa sconfitta di Recep Tayyip Erdogan e del suo Akp alle urne nelle elezioni generali del 7 giugno in Turchia, mette allo scoperto una perdita di peso politico da parte di Erdogan a seguito dei successivi rovesci che ha subito negli ultimi due anni da parte delle masse e, in parte, dai suoi alleati di un tempo.

So at long last, despite all the meanders and sideways and detours of history, the logic of social struggles has finally put its stamp on the politics of Turkey. The resounding defeat of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his AKP at the polls in the 7th June general elections in Turkey brings out into the open a loss of political clout on the part of Erdogan as a result of the successive blows he received in the last two years at the hands of the masses and, partly, his erstwhile partners.

In the open­ing salvos of Latin America’s uneven lurch to the Left in the early twenty-first cen­tury, Bolivia dis­tin­guished itself as the region’s most rad­i­cal socio-political ter­rain.1 Left-indigenous move­ments in the coun­try­side and cityscapes alike threw the state into cri­sis and brought two suc­ces­sive neolib­eral pres­i­dents to their knees – Gon­zalo Sánchez de Lozada in 2003, and Car­los Mesa in 2005.2 Evo Morales’s party, the Movimiento al Social­ismo (Move­ment Towards Social­ism, MAS), leapt into the power vac­uum opened up by this series of revolts, and there has been seri­ous debate on the Left as to how best to but­ton down the cen­tral polit­i­cal dynamic of the coun­try ever since. In a coun­try where 62 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion self-identified as indige­nous in the 2001 cen­sus, Morales became the first indige­nous pres­i­dent through the Decem­ber 2005 elec­tions with 54 per­cent of the pop­u­lar vote, assum­ing office in Jan­u­ary 2006. He repeated this extra­or­di­nary elec­toral suc­cess in Decem­ber 2009, with 64 per­cent, and again in Octo­ber 2014, with 61 percent. ... read full story / add a comment

Hundreds of thousands of chiefly white middle class protesters took to the streets in Brazil on 15 March in an organized upsurge of hatred against the federal administration led by President Dilma Rousseff of the Workers’ Party (Partido dos Trabalhadores, PT). These protests are far more cohesive and better organized than the previous wave of anti-government demonstrations, in 2013; their demands are unambiguously reactionary, and they include primarily the country's elite. ... read full story / add a comment

“One must know how to employ the kairos [right or opportune moment] of one's forces at the right moment.
It is easy to only lose a little, if one always keeps foremost in the mind the idea that unity is never the trick, but the game.”
