The future is fighting collectively. The future is taking advantage of the energy of young people, and bringing them together. The future is about getting rid of the factions we see on the left. The future is talking about a society that is just, equitable and serious about democratic participation, economic equality and social justice. We need a new language, we need radical imagination machines, we need alternative media - but we need a mass movement that sees education and collective struggle as inseparable.
Cultural critic Henry Giroux examines the social and political landscape of America, mid-revolt - from capitalism's violence against minds and bodies for generations, to the rising tide of people rising up against oppression, and for a new world built by our own hands.
Henry wrote the article Racial Domestic Terrorism and the Legacy of State Violence for Counterpunch. His most recent book is The Terror of the Unforeseen from Los Angeles Review of Books.
