The Oxonian Review » An Interview with Terry Eagleton

The Oxonian Review » An Interview with Terry Eagleton | Philosophical Eye | Scoop.it
In Ireland, of course, at the end of the month, there’s a referendum on austerity about to happen. Probably austerity will win out, but it won’t (of course) in Greece, and if it doesn’t in Greece then there will be ripples throughout Europe and I hope that that will strengthen the anti-austerity movement immeasurably. I think that there’s a good chance that that will happen because Greece in that sense is the canary in the coal-mine, and they can’t take it, however “proud” [scare-quote marks with fingers] a people they are. And nor will other people be able to take it if that spreads out. I don’t say that then people will man the revolutionary barricades by any means. Although Greece might not be far from it, certainly not far from civil war, but it will at least sharpen the political choices: it will put them on the table. And not through any heroic efforts by the left, ironically, but through the logic of capitalism itself, which has got itself, as Oliver Hardy said, in this fine mess. And the less people are self-sacrificially prepared to get it out of it, the more the real political options will, I think, become visible.

Philosophical Ranter: Q. Why Impeach Obama? A. Libya, Israel, $16 trillion debt, BasharAl-Assad..... | Philosophical Eye | Scoop.it

The Obama administration has openly stated that they do not seek Congress approval but International agreement from NATO. and the United Nations to attack other countries. Of course this is in direct contradiction to his Oath of Office and the American Constitution.
