THOUGHTFUL ACTION REQUIRES ACTION-ORIENTED THINKING!
Though perhaps diverse in subject matter, the articles and other written pieces that we have published here (and will continue to publish) are driven by a number of interconnected research questions:
• How do we expose and explain what neoliberalism and neoconservatism have done to shape the world in which we find ourselves today?
• How do we best document, analyze, and explain both the local and global impact of the growing gap between the rich and the poor in this country and abroad?
• To what extent can we be said to be living in a broadly “totalitarian” society, or “capitalist dictatorship”?
• How do we counter the current attacks on teachers, and on the values of public education?
• How do we counter the mean-spirited marginalization and growing attacks on workers, immigrants, minorities, gays, lesbians, women, the homeless, and the poor (to name just a few)?
• How do we best communicate what it is we stand to lose as a society if the humanistic values of literacy and critical thinking are further eroded?
• Is what we are experiencing today, in countries like the US, “fascism”?
• To what extent is genocide (cultural, political, or otherwise) a possibility in so-called “developed” and “democratic” societies like ours?
• What might it take to generate a revolutionary consciousness in the US today, one which would see questions of social and global justice addressed in a non-violent way?
And so on, and so on…
