Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

New language, new strategy, new politics: Towards radical resistance.


What educators need to do, and what the left needs to do - is take seriously the idea that education is central to politics. You really have to begin to develop narratives and modes of analysis that don't just point back to structures of economic domination. How do you mobilize around people's needs? How do you create stories in which they can recognize themselves? How do you create the kinds of narratives so people can understand how their everyday lives link to the problems they face? Until we start doing that, we're in big trouble.

Cultural critic Henry Giroux explores the rise of neoliberal fascism and the construction of political dystopia in America, and calls for today's social and worker-led movements to resist the dead end reformism of the Democratic party, and build an inclusive, communal vision of a world to fight for - and to win.

Henry is author of American Nightmare: Facing the Challenge of Fascism from City Lights.
