What's New: A majority of millennials now reject capitalism
by Max Ehrenfreund | May 5, 2016
In an apparent rejection of the basic principles of the U.S. economy, a new poll shows that most young people do not support capitalism. The Harvard University survey, which polled young adults between ages 18 and 29, found that 51 per cent of respondents do not support capitalism. Just 42 per cent said they support it.

What came to be called The Battle of New York has served only to further expose what millions of people in the U.S. are becoming painfully aware of – the Democratic Party primary is rigged in favor of the establishment.

One of the clearest memories I have from my only trip to Norway is the repeated failures at hitching a ride. What appeared to be an unbroken string of brand new Audi’s and BMW’s whizzed by my friend and I, dirty and sweaty after a few days hiking and camping in the mountains. “Where am I that the comforts of our rich assholes are the rights of common citizens?”, I remember thinking.

Bullet #1253: The U.S. Empire's Culture Industry, at Large
by Tanner Mirrlees | May 3, 2016
For readers immersed in the annals of Empire, it is well known that the United States is no ordinary country in the world system. The United States is a unique Empire whose national security strategy since 1945 has relied upon a mix of diplomacy and brute military force to make the world safe for American capitalism around the world, and more importantly, made the world over for global capitalism.

|: Marx in Soho|
Howard Zinn’s acclaimed one-man play Marx in Soho, published in 1999 and performed around the world, offers a compelling portrait of one of the modern era’s most influential thinkers. Karl Marx returns to tell stories about his family, his activism, and his writing career, and to dispel myths and misinterpretations that have emerged around his ideas. "I'm not a Marxist," he insists, yet he speaks forcefully but intimately about the social and economic inequalities that continue to plague western society. Humorous, wistful, and passionate in defence of the oppressed, Zinn's Marx is an inspiring figure to spend an evening with. Starring Jeff Bate Boerop and directed by John Ball, this production has had two successful runs in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
