Nine Numbers That Cry Out: "Bring On Bernie!" | Global politics | Scoop.it
No one individual can solve all our problems, especially with a contrarian and confrontational Congress.

Obama’s Two Mistakes That Lost The Country | Global politics | Scoop.it

After the speech 7th grader Alura Winfrey inquired, “If you could go back to the first day of your first term what advice would you give yourself?” Obama reflected for a moment and then blithely explained he would have worked harder to sell his economic policies.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Obama might well have stunted the emergence of a rightwing populist movement if he had pursued an aggressive populist strategy of his own, one that demonstrated government could effectively challenge giant corporations and unbridled private greed on behalf of small business and the average family.

A Sense of the Uncanny: George Jackson In the Sun of Palestine | Global politics | Scoop.it
After San Quentin guards in 1971 killed George Jackson, Black Panther revolutionary, writer, and prisoner - with a one-year-to-life sentence for a $70 robbery - they found in his library two searing poems about oppression and captivity. Through a "magical mistake," it was thought Jackson wrote them. Later, it turned out they were from a Palestinian anthology. A new exhibit at a Palestinian museum explores the "radical kinship" of two groups voicing "the same anguish and the same terrors."
