Sunday, March 20, 2022 / 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Second in the Socialist Register 58 Series: “Old Polarizations, New Contradictions: The Crisis of Centrism.”

  • SAMIR GANDESHA: Identifies “a fragmentation of the universalism that had historically underwritten the struggle for socialism” leading to what he terms a ‘politics of false concreteness’ centered on forms of identity politics on both the left and the right.
  • INGAR SOLTY: “Market Polarization Means Political Polarization” is a third assessment of this particular moment. The market processes set in motion by neoliberalism bring with them a political polarization encouraging the hard right and varied forms of authoritarian nationalism.
