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...

text Power Elites: On the Great illusion of Pluralist Liberalism by Marcus Kloeckner
With his 1956 book "The Power Elite," C. Wright Mills put the democratic character of the US to the test. Despite formal democratic structures, a power elite formed that suspends democratic procedures. Mills broke through the wall of dominant ideological convictions as the great unquestioned illusion influencing citizens' ideas of reality. "Real power starts from a political directorate. In truth, only small circles have power."...

text The Crises of Today's Economy by Ulrike Herrmann and Stephan Schulmeister
Struggling for basic rights through middle class revolutions and for the social state through workers' movements are the most important examples for the emancipation process. The market is not a subject but an instrument. Nevertheless "the primacy of the market" has replaced "the primacy of politics." Neoliberalism actually serves the interests of finance capital. A doctor whose therapy causes sicknesses cannot understand this. Therefore our elites are in great distress and urge more market a...
