"Imperialism" What is it? â€” Why should we be against it?
"However difficult the task of grasping and confronting global capital might be, it is crucially important that a global internationalism be recovered and reformulated. . . .
The Left should be very careful about constituting a form of politics that, from the standpoint of human emancipation, would be questionable, at the very best, however many people it may rouse."
â€” Moishe Postone, "History and Helplessness" (2006)
A moderated panel discussion and audience Q&A on issues of global capital, imperialism and war, possiblities for progressive political opposition, and the problems and tasks for the Left in the post-Cold War and post-9/11 world raised by the invasions and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq.
