Why Americans Like (or Hate) Capitalism and Socialism

Pew Research Center

Earlier this year, Pew Research Center found that 55% of Americans had
a negative impression of “socialism,” while 42% expressed a
positive view. About two-thirds (65%) said they had a positive view of
“capitalism,” and a third viewed it negatively. But what’s
behind these opinions?

Changing Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day is an opportunity for
our neighbors and allies to recognize us on our journey of healing. It
is an opportunity for important discussions about how we can unite and
move forward as a state with honesty and respect. 

 

Christian Nationalists and Baptists

The Baptist Joint Committee launched an
unprecedented campaign called Christians Against Christian
Nationalism. The usual big-talking Christian Right leaders seem
visibly afraid. 

 

The Social Isolation of Economists

For the last four decades, mainstream economists and policymakers have
been wedded to fixed dogmas. Their blind belief in fiscal discipline
and consolidation, and resulting refusal to consider more public
spending even in an obvious downturn, now threatens the very stability
of societies.

 

Appropriation, Power, and Hip Hop

In These Times

The things black people make with their hands and minds, for pay and
for the hell of it, are exploited by companies and individuals who
offer next to nothing in return. White people are not penalized for
flaunting black culture—they are rewarded for doing so, financially,
artistically, socially and intellectually. For a white person, seeing,
citing and compensating black people, however, has no such reward.

 

Antiwar Left and Right

Alliances between right and left war-skeptics gained new currency this
summer, with the launch of the Quincy Institute. A nonpartisan think
tank founded to promote “diplomatic engagement and military
restraint,” Quincy’s major funders include liberal George Soros
and conservative tea-party financier Charles Koch.

 

Fascism, Anticommunism, and Historical Memory

In Bulgaria, campaigns that equate Communism with Nazism aren’t
about defending democracy against “Russian meddling,” they’re
about rehabilitating Bulgarian fascism and its complicity in the
Holocaust.

David Fincher's anti-society 'Bible for incels' has a complicated
legacy, but it's aged better than Todd Phillips' laughing clown will.
