Death Blips


Writer Eleanor Penny surveys the political landscape facing the British left – still dealing with the uncertain and looming realities of Brexit in March 2019, and the mounting threat of a global far-right coalescing around a shared reactionary vision of European identity, and building partnerships (and power) across borders.

Eleanor wrote the article Steve Bannon’s European Dream for In These Times.

Writer Aaron Timms explains how ‘blip thinking’ blinds the liberal economic/political order from seeing the longterm failures of its own project – capitalism’s swallowing of democracy across the globe, the resulting populist backlash, and the coming world-wide crisis of climate change – and a doubles down on a system with no real answers because it has no real questions.
