Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

There is an alternative: How Jeremy Corbyn cracked the neoliberal consensus.


It was a broad, synthetic vision of how Britain could change, that answered to the crisis of the country, and to the aspirations, increasingly collective and increasingly radicalized, of especially younger, working class Britons - and they turned out for him.

Writer Richard Seymour explains how Jeremy Corbyn's campaign rewrote the possibilities of British politics - by breaking neoliberalism's monopoly on the political class and its media gatekeepers, and reconnecting a class (and generation) abandoned by its politicians with a robust socialist politics based on solidarity, democracy and equality.

Richard wrote the op-ed Corbyn: shifting the possible for the Times Literary Supplement and the essay Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Centre for Salvage.
