The New European Fascists (from @Truthdig)

The New European Fascists (from @Truthdig): Poland offers a frightening example of the right-wing populism sweeping through many nations. Neoliberalism is wrecking economies, creating rage among the working class, devastating cultural institutions and eroding liberal democracy across Europe and in the United States.

Writing as Resistance (from @Truthdig)

Writing as Resistance (from @Truthdig): Doomed writers buried their accounts of the Warsaw ghetto in the hope that they could teach whoever unearthed the documents about good, evil, indifference and the importance of the truth as an act of resistance. They have left us a trove of papers on how to construct a life of meaning.

Legalized Murder and the Politics of Terror (from @Truthdig)

Legalized Murder and the Politics of Terror (from @Truthdig): The police kill citizens with impunity, and that is exactly how the system is designed to work. The numerous little police states that exist in poor urban areas across the U.S. are models for a system that would enslave all of us.
