Pankaj Mishra on Alexander Zevin’s new book “Liberalism at Large” ⁦@VersoBooks⁩: #Liberalism According to ⁦@TheEconomist⁩ | ⁦@NewYorkernewyorker.com/magazine/2019/…
“Within a decade of its founding, Marx was describing it as the organ of “the aristocracy of finance.””
““Lack of diversity is a benefit,” Gideon Rachman, a former editor who is now a columnist at the Financial Times, told Zevin, explaining that it produces an assertive and coherent point of view.”

3/ For Organized International #HumanTrafficking Rings to remain Fully operational, Corrupt Officials are used to help orchestrate ways that enable & cover-up these horrendous “Crimes Against Humanity”. Before we take a look at #Ukraine, let us first look at a similar scenario...

To mark the occasion of #LaborDay2019, I will transcribe an interesting, 91-year old #German text on #Marxism that has never entered the #internet before this post of mine. (I tried quite a lot to find the text, to no avail.) I will manually transcribe it, then translate it.
..
..I won't give the source, and also won't say WHY I don't give the source.

I repeat that it is a literal quote (from a 1928 publication), probably published during the #WeimarRepublic:

"#Marximus .. [ist] .. staats-, gesellschaft- und kulturzerstörend .. gegen jeden Staat,..
..jede Gesellschaft, jede Kultur ... ist #Marxismus ein #Aufruhr der #Eigensucht
gegen das #Gemeinwohl, also das Gegenteil jedes wahren #Sozialismus, denn Sozialismus muss stets das Wohl des Ganzen dem des Teiles voranstellen ... seine „Vorfurcht“ [sic; see dictionary entry

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

#GermanCulture
Today is the 79th #birthday of #German economist and writer Roland Baader(1940-2012), a proponent of the #AustrianSchool of #economics, an indefatigable defender of #liberalism and prophet of the dangers of creeping #socialism. In a sense, a secular Martin #Luther.
Under hashtags of the form #MDHP-𝑛 I will publish my translation of the following #obituary for Baader:
Gerd Habermann: 𝘔𝘪𝘵 𝘥𝘦𝘮 𝘏𝘢𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘳 𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘰𝘴𝘰𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯.
Junge Freiheit Nr.3/12 (2012-01-13)
(published in pdf-form in hayek.de/images/pdf/nac…)
..
..The title of the above newspaper article has no DIRECT relation to Baader's work, rather is an #allusion to a subtitle of a book by Friedrich #Nietzsche (1844-1900), written when Nietzsche was at the verge of mentally collapsing. (Nietzsche was incapacitated from1889 onwards).

On #CriticalTheory

On this day some eat turkey, I read dry scholarship on #liberalism and #postmodernism. Oh, yeah. And I eat turkey, too.
I’ve seen a number of debates — some quite heated! — going back and forth about the validity, soundness, and compatibility of #Islam with #criticaltheory scholarship. Some advocate that it’s entirely incompatible with so-called traditional Islamic thought.
I for one do not subscribe to this on a metaphysical level (as some advocate) though I do find several problems with its claims when taken too far or its scoped expanded too wide. In fact, I think a thing — or a philosophy — is not so much incompatible with Islam

Now we get to strand b/ of criticism of Steven Pinker's "Enlightenment Now". That is, "Inequality! [& often then] Therefore Pinker is a racist, sexist, transphobe scumbag who should be scorned".
As @salonium pointed out, most of that criticism is easy to dismiss. And yet...
Here are @salonium's own words (in quillette.com/2018/03/11/ste…) on dismissing some such criticisms; and let's face it, she's right. Except, arrghh whoops, this means an entire system of "#humanism" values being adopted *as well as* techno yada, and things really aren't that simple.
As @salonium herself points out, that vague values bundle includes #liberalism. And that's OK... except liberalism (& objective science) are under attack, & except Pinker simply unconsciously assumes far too much, as we shall see. But first, @salonium on some critics:
