    What Is to Be Done?

    By Richard Wolff In 1863, the Russian social critic, Nikolay Chernyshevsky, published a novel entitled “What Is to Be Done?” Its story revolves around a central heroine, Vera Pavlovna, and her four dreams. It brilliantly intertwines her personal life and the social turmoil of Russia’s transition at the time from feudalism to capitalism. Chernyshevsky, a revolutionary imprisoned by the Czarist government, wrote a novel that was nothing less than a pioneering work of socialist feminism. In it, he also passionately appealed for an urban, industrial economy based on worker cooperatives, a modern and transformed version of Russia’s earlier agrarian communes. An appreciative Lenin entitled one of his most important political pamphlets, published in 1902, “What Is to Be Done?”

    Mnogo manje bola ti zadaje kada pišeš onako kako moraš. Unutrašnje mučenje se povećava kada odlučiš da zaćutiš, uprkos porivu da kažeš nešto bitno, ali i kada pokušaš da napišeš nešto tuđom rukom i pameću.

  • Democracy Now! speaks to award-winning writers Jazmine Hughes and Jamie Lauren Keiles in their first broadcast interview since being forced out of The New York Times Magazine for signing an open letter condemning Israel's siege on Gaza. The magazine's editor Jake Silverstein said the letter violated the outlet's policy on public protest, but Keiles says there are no clear guidelines, especially for contributing writers. He explains he signed on to the letter due to his disappointment in the journalistic standards missing from mainstream coverage of the war in Gaza, saying "this is an industrywide question." Both writers say their former institution's scrutiny of pro-Palestinian activism is a double standard that indicates tacit support for Israel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRk-iR6gGoU

    S kraja na kraj Postjugoslavije, od Vardara pa do Triglava, od Vranja pa do Prijedora, širi se kultura otkazivanja. Samo što to nije ona "debilna cancel kultura" koju na umu imaju Rambo Amadeus i toliki slični njemu, uvjereni – tko zna zašto – da je zapadnjački virus političke korektnosti poharao i naše krajeve

  • I dok Vlada Srbije nastavlja da pomera rokove i obilato finansira izgradnju memorijalnog kompleksa u Pranjanima kod Gornjeg Milanovca, posvećenog veličanju narativa o „najvećem spasavanju“ saveznika i „američko-srpskom prijateljstvu“ u toku Drugog svetskog rata, taman ostaje vremena da se zapitamo šta je u svemu tome istina.

  • Živimo u doba nejednakosti – ili nam bar tako često govore. Širom sveta, naročito u bogatim ekonomijama zapada, jaz između bogatih i svih ostalih godinama se produbljivao dok se nije pretvorio u provaliju, što izaziva strepnju, podstiče nezadovoljstvo i destabilizuje politički život.

  • China has been able to mobilize many other nations to resist and oppose United States and G7 policies in various global forums. The source of China’s remarkable economic growth—and the key to BRICS countries’ now successful challenge to the G7’s global economic dominance—has been its hybrid economic model

  • Priča o Gladomoru trenutačno se savršeno uklapa u dominantan narativ koji je Hrvatska kao članica NATO-a i EU bila primorana prihvatiti, a po kojem su Rusi apsolutni negativci čitave povijesti, dok su Ukrajinci isto tako preuzeli ulogu vječito potlačenog naroda u stoljetnoj borbi za oslobođenje i samostalnost. Ipak, s objektivne pozicije historiografije potrebno je ponoviti nekolicinu činjenica vezanih uz ovaj povijesni događaj, ali bez njegovog brkanja s trenutačnim ratnim djelovanjem Rusije unutar Ukrajine.

  • Masovne pucnjave u Srbiji ponovo su pokrenule javne rasprave o rijaliti televiziji. Ona zauzima povlašteni status u interpretaciji uzroka zločina, a njeno ukidanje ili reguliranje centralni zahtjev masovnih protesta. Tim povodom se vraćamo u 2015. godinu i podsjećamo na tekst Ivana Velisavljevića na temu. Tada su ideološke uloge bilo nešto drukčije podijeljene, ali odnos kapitalizma i kulture se nije promijenio. Kao ni iluzije koje ga prate.

  • Frozen, standing still, trapped or just stopped in time as time still flows. Just like our video is at the present moment, as we found out recently, we sometimes feel like so. It is easy to feel stuck in this context where everything gets a better image for the same old, same old, it seems that everything changes but nothing really does
