What's the Matter with the Left Forum

Steven Sherman | In its organizational structure and attitude, the Left Forum isolates itself from most social movements. But it also refuses to constitute itself as a living organization. Instead, the preference is to berate all existing forces and implore participants to somehow get their act together. Unless it shifts the way it does things, it risks irrelevance. more...  13 Comments

"This cop who did it must see what it is to kill a kid and to destroy a life."

emiliano | Amazing how different we are from other people in the world. In the US, teenagers are killed in cold blood every few weeks by police, and only minimal outcry is ever voiced, and usually it is from activists rather than the general public. We have become so totally jaded, consumed with our possessions, immersed in a sea of digits signifying the (ever more imaginary and precarious) financial wealth accredited to each of us, lost in our iPhones, boxed away for shipment in our SUVs, that the many deaths at the hands of the US government at home and abroad as well as the infinite harm we inflict on the world, well, we just don't notice it.

For perspective, here's a quote from the streets of Athens:

"Rage is what I feel for what has happened, rage," said one protesting student. "This cop who did it must see what it is to kill a kid and to destroy a life." more...  1 Comments

Let's Not Get Organized By Barack Obama

Tom Kertes | Barack Obama and I share one thing in common. I am a community organizer. And so was Barack Obama. From this, I imagine, we've witnessed many of the same injustices, heard similar stories of people being beaten down and being taken advantage of, and have studied the same strategies and tactics for how to build power for the powerless. Given this, why did Barack Obama stop community organizing? more...  1 Comments
