In The Dangerous Class: The Concept of the Lumpenproletariat (University of Michigan Press, forthcoming 2020), I argue that US President Donald Trump should be understood as a “Prince of the Lumpenproletariat.” The question that will confront us on November 3rd and long afterward is whether Donald Trump will become “Emperor of the Lumpenproletariat.” These terms are taken from Karl Marx’s 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte, where he applied them to Louis Bonaparte III. I argue that Trump has followed the script of the 18th Brumaire, which is the story of the exceptional rise to power of a lumpenproletariat organized and led by an authoritarian populist.

Why write about sadism and shamelessness now? Because it’s worse, it’s complex and its causes and effects need to be better understood. Its physical and psychological manifestations are day-to-day, uninhibited, and public: daily extra-judicial police killings like George Floyd in Minneapolis, the police killing of 32-year-old Iyad el-Hallak in Jerusalem, Muslims in India. ... read full story / add a comment

Every day and in every part of India, hundreds of thousands of people – mainly young people – gather on the streets to express their anger at the government. Their protests, like those of the protests in Chile, emerged out of one particular grievance but then have cascaded outward. They are angry at the government’s attempt to define citizenship in a narrow and bigoted way; but they are also angry at the arrogance of the government and at the disastrous way in which the government has managed the economy. ... read full story / add a comment

On December 13, the United Nations high commissioner for human rights released a powerful statement that criticized India’s new citizenship law. This “fundamentally discriminatory” Citizenship (Amendment) Act of 2019 would expedite citizenship for persecuted religious minorities from India’s neighboring countries. But in the list of those minorities, it names only Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians. It does not mention Muslims, despite the fact that there have been several important cases of Muslims being persecuted in Pakistan (the Ahmadis), in Afghanistan (the Hazaras), and in Myanmar (the Rohingya). The UN said that not only does this law violate India’s obligations to conventions, treaties, and compacts that it has signed at the global level, but also that it is in violation of its own constitution. ... read full story / add a comment

Regarding recent events in Bolivia, some things are simple: Was it a coup? Yes. On Sunday, November 10, the commander-in-chief of Bolivia’s armed forces, General Williams Kaliman, publicly told Evo Morales, a constitutionally elected president, that he ought to resign for the good of the country. There is no other name for this kind of thing. Even if Evo had been officially accused of legal wrongdoing – he had not – this procedure of removal is unconstitutional. The resignation took place under an unstated threat of violence. Bolivia’s history gives reason to take this threat seriously: military coups and counter-coups were a decisive feature of political life throughout the twentieth century. And considering that the police, two days before the general’s intervention, had already decided to allow anti-government protestors to commit violence against the homes and family-members of supporters of the Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS) party, to which Evo belongs, Kaliman’s remarks carried weight well beyond a “suggestion.” ... read full story / add a comment

Calma, tensa calma en Caracas y toda Venezuela, tras el publicitario intento de golpe de Estado en Venezuela, donde los sectores radicales de la oposición no lograron ni el apoyo de las Fuerzas Armadas ni que el pueblo saliera a la calle a sumatse a la intentona liderada por el autoproclamado presidente Juan Guaidó y el prófugo Leopoldo López. ... read full story / add a comment

BRENTON TARRANT, WHO stands accused of killing 50 adults and children at two mosques in New Zealand last week, wants us to know what inspired his actions. Before livestreaming his massacre of Muslim worshipers, he composed a lengthy document that proudly advocates the murder of innocent people in the name of racial purity. The manifesto is predictably disturbing. It is the work of a nihilist who sees a world so bleak and hopeless that it could be improved through acts of mass murder. There is one word in the 74-page document, however, that stood out to me: “invader.” ... read full story / add a comment

It is the time of monsters. The organic crisis of the old neoliberal project has also brought forth the rise of a new radical right. Yet these monsters are quite different from one another: we have strong men like Trump, Kurz and Macron – political entrepreneurs shaping a new authoritarianism from positions of governance. Theresa May and Boris Johnson act quite similar, with less success, but unlike the others they are established representatives of authoritarian elite right-wing conservatism. They all share an anti-establishment discourse, although they have strong capital factions backing them. ... read full story / add a comment

NOT content with calling Jeremy Corbyn a “fucking anti-semite and racist,” and treating herself as the victim when the Labour Party threatened to act on a third party complaint about her use of outrageous and abusive language against a fellow Labour MP whom she has known for several decades, and is the leader of the Labour Party, Margaret Hodge has had the chutzpah to compare her fight against Corbyn’s alleged anti-semitism with her fight in her Barking constituency against the British National Party (BNP). ... read full story / add a comment

Hace ya años hubo un debate muy vivo e intenso en círculos politológicos en nuestro país sobre el tipo de régimen político que existía en España durante el periodo 1939-1978. Algunos politólogos, como el Sr. Juan Linz, de la Universidad de Yale (muy influyente en España, maestro de muchos de los profesores de Ciencias Políticas más conocidos en este país), sostenían que aquel régimen había sido un régimen autoritario, o lo que podría llamarse una dictadura a secas, sin más. Su misión era mantener el orden y la autoridad, siendo su dimensión represiva la más acentuada. Dirigida por un caudillo al que el régimen consideraba que tenía dotes casi sobrehumanas (“Caudillo por la gracia de Dios”, se decía en España para definir al Caudillo), tal tipo de Estado recibía el nombre de caudillista, siendo la forma de dictadura más común en América Latina, y que, según tales autores, incluía también la dictadura en España llamada franquista. ... read full story / add a comment

1. On 27 October, in fulfilment of the mandate of the referendum of 1 October in which despite police repression more than two million people participated, the Catalan Parliament proclaimed the Catalan Republic. In a Spain with a monarchy that is a direct successor of the dictator Franco, a Republic that opens up a constituent process is without doubt a proposal that breaks with the 1978 regime, with its political consensus and with a constitutional order that serves the elites. This proclamation occurs in a context of constant threats to apply article 155 and impose an authoritarian outcome on a conflict that demands an eminently political and democratic solution. In fact, in recent days the application of 155 had come to be threatened no matter what happened. We call for the application of article 155 to be rejected and for democratic, peaceful and disobedient defence of the will of the Catalan people and of their right to decide. ... read full story / add a comment

1- El 27 de Octubre, cumpliendo el mandato del referéndum del 1 de Octubre en el que participaron más de 2 millones de personas a pesar de la represión policial, el Parlament de Catalunya proclamó la Republica Catalana. En una España con una monarquía sucesora directa del dictador Franco, una República que abre un proceso constituyente es sin duda una propuesta que rompe con el régimen del 78, con sus consensos políticos y con un orden constitucional al servicio de las élites. Esta proclamación se produce en un contexto de amenazas constantes para aplicar el 155 y darle una salida autoritaria a un conflicto que tiene que tener una salida eminentemente política y democrática. De hecho, en los últimos días se había llegado a amenazar con la aplicación del 155 pasara lo que pasara, se hiciera lo que se hiciera. Llamamos a rechazar la aplicación del artículo 155 y a la defensa democrática, pacífica y desobediente de la voluntad del pueblo catalán y su derecho a decidir. ... read full story / add a comment

In 1713-14, it took the troops of Spain’s Borbon monarchy 14 months of siege before taking Barcelona and ending Catalan self-rule. In September 2017, Catalonia is again under siege, this time from the central Spanish People’s Party (PP) government. Under prime minister Mariano Rajoy the Spanish state is concentrating all its firepower on stopping the Catalan government’s October 1 independence referendum. On that day, if this siege is successfully resisted, Catalan citizens will vote on whether “Catalonia should become an independent state in the form of a republic.” ... read full story / add a comment

Large parts of the western working class now seem to gather around right populists, demagogues, and racists. They vote for reactionary and fascistoid political parties. They helped to vote the UK out of the EU and to make Trump president of the world's superpower number one, and they vote so massively for the far right political parties that the latter have government power in sight throughout several of Europe's most populous countries. ... read full story / add a comment
