Mon, 16 Jan 2017 13:20:12 +0000

This week on Sea Change Radio, in the second half of our discussion with former senior advisers to the Bernie Sanders campaign, Becky Bond and Zack Exley, host Alex Wise struggles with the harsh reality of an incoming President completely unqualified and unprepared to lead the planet’s only superpower.




Neoliberals know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 19:18:57 +0000

My father likes to say that some people know the price of everything and the value of nothing. The same could be said of the neoliberals of the world, who–in case you missed my previous piece–are now transcendent in most policy circles across the world.




2016: The Year Magic Broke into Politics

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 11:33:00 +0000

(image)

So let’s get down to business: is the rise of Donald Trump a millenarian movement? If so, what the hell does that mean?




Just Enough Is Plenty: Review

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 10:34:26 +0000

Samuel Alexander has written an excellent introduction to Thoreau’s works. Just Enough Is Plenty: Thoreau’s Alternative Economics not only summarises Thoreau’s ideas, it is also a pithy statement of Alexander’s work itself…




Nashville Teens Mapped Their Daily Routes—And Got a New Bike Lane as a Result

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 13:25:44 +0000

(image)

To make the case for better neighborhood mobility, Furbish’s class of middle and high school students mapped their movements around North Nashville, tracking the spaces they visited most and the barriers that kept them from getting around, such as the lack of crosswalks and paths.




The Embarrassments of Chronocentrism

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 11:39:20 +0000

(image)

It’s a curious thing, this attempt of mine to make sense of the future by understanding what’s happened in the past. One of the most curious things about it, at least to me, is the passion with which so many people insist that this isn’t an option at all.




How We Fight Back: Part 1

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 14:42:42 +0000

(image)

We hear from Becky Bond and Zack Exley, two senior advisers from the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and authors of the new book, “Rules For Revolutionaries: How Big Organizing Can Change Everything.”




What We Need is Some Culture: Part 3

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 14:09:50 +0000

Here I will be laying out what I consider to be the core elements and principle guidelines for civic/popular programs for democratic praxis. First, some definitions.




After Trump 1: Getting Urbanists and Localists Together

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 10:22:35 +0000

(image)

So, as one small effort to try to organize my thoughts about politics in the Trump era, let me see if I can make the case for why urbanism should, and usually does, comport with localism, and thus why urban-sympathetic conservatives and radical and democratic localists, as we all face 2017, have much in common.




The Twelve Days (and Months) of Climate Justice Day Eleven: The Search for a New Form of Politics (with a surprise ending)

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 08:20:41 +0000

(image)

So below I offer my own thoughts on how to move closer to the worlds we want, based on much comparative reflection on the stories of people everywhere who have acted in the name of radical social change, which for me, means something like “deep transformation of a society (or other entity such as a community, region, or the whole world) in the direction of greater economic equality and political participation, accomplished by the actions of a strong and diverse popular movement,” a definition loose enough to encompass both the great revolutions of the twentieth century and the new paths to radical social change of our own.




Squeezing Oil Out of Your Travel (Make Your Life Less Oily in 2017, Part 2)

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 12:48:43 +0000
