The silence of the lambs

Why the West should stop being angelic towards Putin

For Vladimir Putin, the West's tolerance is weakness and dialogue is failure to impose force. Because KGB-styled Russia believes that either you devour, or you are devoured. Europe's "silence of the lambs", writes Volodymyr Yermolenko, is not a proper response to Russia's war. [ more ]

Lateral

lateral was a member of the Eurozine network from January 2001 to January 2006.

"There are always more reasons for closing a cultural publication than for striving to keep it alive," wrote director and founder of lateral Mihály Dés in his column for the final issue, 133 (1/2006). Although the journal is no longer producing new issues, their archive from 2001 to 2006 will remain in Eurozine.

lateral was a monthly focusing on cultural and social phenomena. It reviewed the latest books from around the world, with a special interest in Hispanic literature. It offered debates, interviews, biographies, literary criticism, poetry, and short stories, and also covered a great variety of other fields, such as politics, history, science, arts, and music.

lateral was first published in 1994 and became a leading voice in Spain's cultural panorama. Its web site is a highly visited space of intellectual dialogue in Spain with visitors from around the world, as lateral is not only read in Spain but also in the rest of Europe and Latin America. A full archive of all lateral issues remains available at www.lateral-ed.es.

Acuso a la vida

Según observa la sabiduría popular, todas las cosas buenas de la vida o engordan o son inmorales. Pero esto ha cambiado. Los placeres, que hasta ahora se pagaban caros, se han convertido en un negocio que permite recuperar la inversión con creces. Estamos al albor de una nueva era: la Era de las Indemnizaciones. Todo depende de si tenemos un buen abogado. [more]

Britain flouts the European Court of Justice

http://www.eurozine.com/blog/

In the two decades after the end of the Cold War, intellectual interaction between Russia and Europe has intensified. It has not, however, prompted a common conversation. The focal point "Russia in global dialogue" seeks to fuel debate on democracy, society and the legacy of empire. [more]

Civil disobedience for an age of total surveillance
The case of Edward Snowden

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-04-18-scheuerman-en.html
Earlier civil disobedients hinted at our increasingly global condition. Snowden takes it as a given. But, writes William E. Scheuerman, in lieu of an independent global legal system in which Snowden could defend his legal claims, the Obama administration should treat him with clemency. [more]

A finger pointing at the moon

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-01-16-tokarczuk-en.html
Our language is our literary destiny, writes Olga Tokarczuk. And "minority" languages provide a special kind of sanctuary too, inaccessible to the rest of the world. But, there again, language is at its most powerful when it reaches beyond itself and starts to create an alternative world. [more]
