          Mass Incarceration And Its Mystification: A Review Of The 13th
    
          October 26, 2016
    
          The 13th effectively demonstrates that criminalization has been a persistent feature of anti-Black racism. The film does not discuss the policies that gave greater power to police, prosecutors, and prisons in those critical years.

          The Nobel Committee Got It Wrong: Ngugi wa Thiong’o Is the Writer the World Needs Now
    
          October 26, 2016
    
          "When I first heard about Bob Dylan’s selection for the prize, I wasn’t concerned that the award had gone to a musician; I was disturbed that the committee had demonstrated an apparent obliviousness to the times we are living in. The US is saddled with a presidential candidate who peddles in misogyny and appeals to white supremacists. In many other countries, neo-liberals are vying with the far right for power, and the left is at its weakest." This decision felt myopic.

          The German Left isn’t Buried Yet, says Linke Leader
    
          October 26, 2016
    
          “Left-wing populism” makes clear that boundaries that create and represent identities do not run between people of different geographical origin, but among those at the bottom and at the top of society.  This is a useful and appropriate populism. It has nothing to do with right-wing populism: the Others on the other side of the fence are not foreigners, but the richest 10 percent of society.
