Organizing Against Capitalism

program date: 
Mon, 08/25/2014

Clayton Morgareidge discusses the kind of movement needed to challenge inequality and save the environment. Noting that neoliberalism rationalizes plutocracy and the security apparatus needed to put down rebellions against the elites, Clayton draws on an essay by Sam Gindin in Jacobin . He stresses that austerity and environmental catastrophism do not motivate organizing for change, and highlights the importance of reckoning with state power--not just protesting, but remaking the state. Although we need to appreciate the differences that led to the development of identity politics, he argues that only by forging alliances based on class can we successfully address the tasks before us.

Kristian Williams on Our Enemies in Ferguson

program date: 
Tue, 08/26/2014

Bill Resnick interviews Kristian Williams about policing in Ferguson. Williams is the author of several books on state violence, including Our Enemies in Blue , which argues that the role of the police is to enforce social inequality. Noting that Michael Brown's killing by a police officer is sadly typical, Williams traces to the social protests of the 1960s both the the militarization of the police and the corollary development of community policing, meant to develop networks in neighborhoods so as to rely less on violence and more on alliances with community leaders. He notes that the military now looks at domestic policing as a model for counterinsurgency overseas. 20:43 minutes (9.49 MB)
