Chantal Mouffe: «Obtenir un consensus  en politique est par principe impossible» | Hip Hop for Social Change | Scoop.it
Pour la philosophe belge proche de Podemos, il est urgent de renouer avec une vision conflictuelle de la démocratie, sous peine de glisser sur le terrain de la morale et de faire des adversaires politiques des ennemis irréconciliables.

Capitalism will eat democracy -- unless we speak up

Capitalism will eat democracy -- unless we speak up | Hip Hop for Social Change | Scoop.it
Have you wondered why politicians aren't what they used to be, why governments seem unable to solve real problems? Economist Yanis Varoufakis, the former Minister of Finance for Greece, says that it's because you can be in politics today but not be in power -- because real power now belongs to those who control the economy. He believes that the mega-rich and corporations are cannibalizing the political sphere, causing financial crisis. In this talk, hear his dream for a world in which capital and labor no longer struggle against each other, "one that is simultaneously libertarian, Marxist and Keynesian."

Why firefighters are against free trade - Le Monde diplomatique - English edition

Why firefighters are against free trade - Le Monde diplomatique - English edition | Hip Hop for Social Change | Scoop.it
The French demonstrators in the Nuit Debout movement (Up All Night) hope that a convergence of struggles will enable them to extend their appeal beyond the young and university-educated, and become part of an international dynamic. One of their campaign issues — the rejection of free trade treaties — may help those objectives. The intricacies of trade agreements often discourage protest, as it is very hard to know which stage of the process to scrutinise most closely, or which apparently (...)
