text Is this the world's most radicalmayor? Ada Colau of Barcelona by Dan Hanvox

She has said that she wants to “feminise” politics and avoids macho or old-left rhetoric.

The bad news is that there are more inconvenient truths. Climate change is present, not future. Globalization and protection of the atmosphere do not go together. Climate policy has a policy. Economic profit dominance always has priority over climate protection. The logic of the financial markets to which climate protection often falls victim must be broken. A whole bundle of measures is necessary. Climate protection must go hand-in-hand with fighting poverty.

text The Language of Neoliberalism by Sebastian Friedrich
Knowledge enables people to interpret reality. Metaphors and pictures give things a new meaning and can change reality when people act accordingly. Capital isn't so frightened and isn't the same as a deer. Different forms of capital must be distinguished. The financial crisis is compared to a thunderstorm that is not man-made. The term "sleek state" implied in the demand for "more market and less state" is physical or bodily. Costs for the population rise parallel to the trimming of the s...
