text Neoliberal Crisis Policy has Failed by Sonja Forcher
The term "invisible hand of the market" goes back to Adam Smith. This assumes all economic activity promotes the common good. The state could provide a basic social security and equal access to education or raise taxes to make possible equal starting conditions. Neoliberalism's survival is surprising because its theoretical assumptions are dubious. People cling to neoliberal prescriptions against all empirical reality....

text General Strike Needed to Stop Police Killings by General Strike Now
On September 2, 2016 in India, 180 million people went on a labor strike, shouting anti-government slogans. India is a country of 1.252 billion people. The US has 318 million. If they can carry out a general strike in a large country, so can we. We can start city by city, wherever the police killing takes place, until the killer cop is fired. A trial is a waste because it is a staged farce with no conviction or a conviction on a minor charge, all at taxpayer's expense. The pictures of In...
