Automatic for the People

Nicholas Powers | The individual versus the crowd is the great American myth. It is a fantasy of that connects to our identity as consumers. Most of us remember the classic Cold War image of Soviet workers standing in long lines for soap. Life without capitalism, we’re shown, is waiting in a hungry crowd. The only cure for state incompetence is the marketplace, an economic theory that David Harvey writes about in A Brief History of Neo-liberalism. It’s “the assumption that individual freedoms are guaranteed by the freedom of the marketplace.” more...  2 Comments

NYC Libraries Censor IndyKids Newspaper

IndyKids | A new project of New York City Indymedia, IndyKids, has been censored by two area library systems. After agreeing to distribute IndyKids to their local branches, both the New York Public Library and the Queens Public Library changed their minds and now refuse to distribute the paper. They say the reason for their decision is that IndyKids is not “balanced.”

Yet a look at the periodicals offered at the Donnell Children’s Library shows a striking bias. For example, “Biography Today-Profiles of People of Interest to Young Readers” September 2005 issue calls Pope John Paul II “the charismatic ‘people’s pope’ who helped topple Communism while championing Catholic values and a culture of peace.” more...  7 Comments
