Δύο δυνάμεις δυναμιτίζουν τις κοινωνίες μας –από την Κρήτη στο Δουβλίνο, από τη Λισαβόνα στη Λετονία, στο Παρίσι, στο Βερολίνο, παντού– εκτρέφοντας πολιτικά τέρατα με τον θυμό και την απογοήτευση που παράγουν: Το Κατεστημένο της Ρευστοποίησης, το οποίο επενδύει στην κρίση της οικονομίας και της...

Much like many other parts of the world at that time, the North of Ireland was undergoing a process of profound political change in the early 1970’s.  By the time January 1972 came around the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association (...

Back in 1991, a left-wing friend expressed his frustration that “really existing socialism” was crumbling, with exaltations of how it had propelled the Soviet Union from the plough to Sputnik in a decade.

Το 2017 ήταν άλλη μια χαμένη χρονιά για την Ευρώπη. Το 2016 ακόμα και οι πιο δύσπιστοι Ευρωπαίοι κατανόησαν ότι το πράγμα δεν πάει άλλο και ότι απαιτούνται ριζικές θεσμικές αλλαγές στην Ευρώπη. Παρ’ όλα αυτά, οι απαιτούμενες αλλαγές εμποδίστηκαν από τη συνήθη διαφωνία ως προς το τι πρέπει να...
