  1. From the Frankfurt school to Obama

    Why do we have a feeling that something just isn’t quite right, but we’re unable to put our finger on it?
    Why doesn’t it matter who you vote for, nothing seems to change?
    Why did the old slogans of ‘Power to the People’ and ‘Workers of the World Unite’ disappear?

    Those looking for communists revolutionaries with red flags standing on the barricades will remain disappointed. The communists became progressives, minority interests replaced those of the workers and equality, ...
