Podemos: Much more than just a marriage of minds

Founded in 2014, Podemos already leads opinion polls across Spain. But accusations that it is treating the country as a gigantic piece of fieldwork and conjecture as to its rootedness in political theory tend to be wide of the mark, writes Manuel Arias Maldonado. [English version added] [ more ]

Eurozine Review

Capitalism's animal spirits

"openDemocracy" condemns the European Union's inhumane treatment of migrants; "Kultura Liberalna" talks to Anne Applebaum; in "Blätter", Rolf Hosfeld marks the centenary of the Armenian genocide; "Esprit" re-reads Kostas Axelos on the destiny of modern Greece; "Varlik" remembers Yasar Kemal; "Letras Libres" contemplates a concept of tolerance turned upside down, after 10 years of cartoon controversy; "Spilne" rejects the pro-/anti-westernism surrounding the Maidan protests; "Samtiden" takes stock of last year's Norwegian novels; and "Polar" critiques a new DIY mentality in the search for alternative ways of life.

Porträtt

Portrait

Samir, varför ville du dö?
Evin Ismail och Samir växte upp i samma förortsområde.
Hon blev doktorand, och han blev IS-krigare.
Samir, why did you want to die?
Evin Ismail and Samir grew up in the same suburban area.
She became a graduate student, and he became an IS-terrorist.

När de möttes för intervjuer blev hon påmind om den rädsla hon växte upp med: att hamna utanför i samhället.
För Samir blev mötet en påminnelse om att Sverige är orättvist
When they met for interviews, she was reminded of the fear she grew up with: being left out of the community.
Samir was reminded that Sweden is unfair.

Samir dog i Syrien. I Evins ögon blev han en mördare, ändå bestämde hon sig för att hon måste försöka förstå det många avfärdar som "ondska".
Samir died in Syria. In Evins eyes, he was a murderer, yet she decided that she must try to understand what many dismiss as "evil".

Reportage

Reportage
Klas Ekman
Hur mår högern?
I alla tider har vänstern varit kända för sina inre strider. Men nu är det högern som står för de heta fraktionsstriderna. När Alliansen förlorade valet var det som om locket flög av den intellektuella högerns tankesmedjor. Nu bråkar alla med alla: Liberalkonservativa, gammelkonservativa, nyliberaler, äkta liberaler, SD-vänlig höger, Axess-höger, Neo-höger, Timbro-höger och så några utrotningshotade socialliberaler av den gamla skolan. Klas Ekman har träffat högerns olika fraktioner.
How is the right doing?
At all times, the left has been known for their internal battles. But now it is the right that stands for the hot factional struggles. When the centre-right government lost the election it was as if the lid flew off the intellectual right-wing think tanks. Now the battle is on between Liberal Conservatives, old conservatives, libertarians, genuine liberals, and some endangered social liberals of the old school. Klas Ekman has met with the right-wing factions.

Ylva Bergström
Hur politiska är dagens unga?
Tror de på det politiska systemet och vilka frågor gör dem engagerade? Det är en avgrund mellan samhällsvetarna i Uppsala som delas av vänster-högerskalan och yrkesprogrammen i Fagersta där det är på invandring och mångkultur som styr. Sociologen Ylva Bergström har pratat med 1100 ungdomar.
