What to Make of Change on an Overheating Planet The history we grow up with shapes our sense of reality — it’s hard to shake. If you were young during the fight against Nazism, war seems a different, more virtuous animal than if you came of age during Vietnam.  I was born in 1960, and [...]

The Case for Hope, Continued Ten years ago, my part of the world was full of valiant opposition to the new wars being launched far away and at home — and of despair. And like despairing people everywhere, whether in a personal depression or a political tailspin, these activists believed the future would look more [...]

As 2013 gets underway, progressives need to be here now. We’re in a new era of national politics—with different circumstances that call for a major shift in approach. Last year, the vast majority of progressives supported the Obama campaign to keep a Republican out of the White House. We helped deliver that vital blow to right-wing [...]

It has been dark and cold since Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast a month ago. Three feet [...]

They say the best defense is a good offense. I Googled the hell out of this phrase but couldn’t find a definitive answer on where it comes from. It’s attributed to everyone from the football coach Vince Lombardi to Machiavelli, Mao, the boxer Jack Dempsey and probably every military strategist in history. Whatever the case may [...]

Two weeks ago I was in my hometown of Hoboken, New Jersey, wading waist deep in a murky combination of floodwater, oil and sewage. More than a week later, after finally getting unstuck from New Jersey (even the deepest Jersey pride has its limits…), I found myself in a van full of Occupy Sandy activists [...]

On Reform, Revolution, and Winning Reform vs. Revolution The question of whether movements should fight for reform or revolution is not a new one.

Mientras en Argentina regurgitan aún los sabores del accionar cacerolero de hace 10 días y un polarizado debate persiste en el intento de aprehender su significación, se multiplica la utilización de este modo de protesta en el mundo aunque con menos espontaneidad y sorpresa. Si bien no es la única expresión sonora, el próximo sábado [...]

Occupy Wall Street’s First Anniversary Occupy is now a year old.  A year is an almost ridiculous measure of time for much of what matters: at one year old, Georgia O’Keeffe was not a great painter, and Bessie Smith wasn’t much of a singer. One year into the Civil Rights Movement, the Montgomery Bus Boycott was [...]
