Max Zirngast

A report on dissent and discontent in Erdogan's Turkey.

Live from Ankara, journalist Max Zirngast reports on Erdoğan’s autocratic grip tightening over Turkey - from his own experience in prison and on trial on coercive terror charges, to the nation's long-term, linked economic and political crises with no way out but a fundamental restructuring of power within Turkish society.

Max is co-author of the article Discontent Is Brewing In Erdoğan’s Turkey from Jacobin.

Andrew Fischer

Taking poverty studies - and policy - back from the rich.

Political economist Andrew Fischer studies poverty, and the study of poverty, beyond the neoliberal frame - from the deeply flawed metrics and methods used by global development groups, to the ways consensus capitalist logic reinforces a set of 'de-politicized' poverty reduction policies that amplify inequality across the globe.

Andrew is author of Poverty as Ideology: Rescuing Social Justice from Global Development Agendas from Zed Books.

Carbon, capital and the pipeline at the end of this world.

Writers Duncan Tarr and Noor us-Sabah explore the Midwestern oil pipeline that ties us all together - tracing the flows of carbon and capital across the globe, and mapping out system of extraction that can't be reformed or re-routed, but must be abolished and dismantled wherever it threatens life on this planet.

Duncan and Noor wrote the article The End of the Line for Commune.

It's the propaganda of the rich: How US Christian elites are funding Europe's far right.

Journalist Adam Ramsay traces money fueling Europe's far right back to Christian fundamentalists in the US - as a way to create new political spaces within Europe for the far right to advance against gay and trans rights, immigration and abortion, and as cover for a global reactionary movement in service of oligarchs on both sides of the Atlantic.

openDemocracy released the report Revealed: Trump-linked US Christian ‘fundamentalists’ pour millions of ‘dark money’ into Europe, boosting the far right.

Cinzia Arruzza

There is another path: Towards a universal feminism.

Philosopher Cinzia Arruzza examines the anticapitalist, eco-socialist and antiracist reach of a feminist for all - reclaiming the liberatory potential of feminist politics from the narrowing frame of neoliberalism, and presenting a broad path towards liberation from the oppressive hands of capitalism and patriarchy.

Cinzia is co-author of Feminism for the 99%: A Manifesto from Verso.

Jeff Dorchen

The crack in the facade: Toward a unified conspiracy theory of fascism.

In a Moment of Truth, Jeff Dorchen works his way uncomfortably deep into the cracks spreading across the already thin global veneer of democracy, and finds Trump and Russia, but not the Trump and Russia of the liberal imagination, but the Trump and Russia (and US and France and Germany and Israel and Brazil (repeat as necessary)) of a unifying fascist kleptocracy.
