Our Fundamentalists and Theirs: Political Cartoons, Jyllands-Posten, and Beyond

occasional IMC contributor | I’ve often wondered what I would have done if I had been older when the Satanic Verses was published. Someone on the left—and not some mealy mouthed democrat, either, but someone on the real left, a progressive, a radical, an anti-imperialist—needs to say this, needs to say that the entire foundation of Western modernity is grounded in a movement away from religious censorship of communication and thought. Marx thought this was true; 19th century anarchists thought this was true too. Of course, they also knew that it wasn’t always true—that political freedom covered up and served as a mask for deeper systems of economic and social unfreedom. But they also knew that despite all its flaws, this Enlightenment move was a good one, and that the shackles of religious censorship were better off than on. Perhaps all this makes me a sraight white man, or an “unreconstructed enlightenmentist.” But my political radicalism comes from belief in these things, too. more...  52 Comments

Threatening with the Checkbook

Thalif Deen | In 1984 the US cancelled its membership in the UN organization for education, scince and culture (UNESCO). Down-is-up America, the land of reversible cups, harvests only fear and mockery as long as arrogance and greed marginalize criticism and correction.

In the name of "ABB:" Liberal left "fights the right" by chasing after it

Roy Rollin | No one, in his or her right mind, would assert that the main contradiction in American politics today is between Republicans and Democrats. Rather it is between the bi-partisan war party and a majority of Americans who oppose the war but lack a political outlet to express their opposition to it. The politics of "lesser evilism" pursued by the mainstream liberal left under the guise of "Anybody But Bush" (ABB) bears no small share of the responsibility for this for this sad state of affairs. Because the liberal left has helped co-opt any and every mass movement into the dead-end of Democratic Party politics, the antiwar movement, which put millions of people into the streets, doesn't have a single representative in any elected body in the U.S. and is dependent on the whims of pro-war politicians and the "swing state" voters that supposedly support them. more...  0 Comments
