How to be left-wing and win in America: a socialist candidate on her election

http://www.newstatesman.com/world/north-america/2017/01/how-be-left-wing-and-win-america-socialist-candidate-her-election

Seattle’s Kshama Sawant of the Socialist Alternative party tells us how she reached an elected position and plans to combat the US right.

In November 1999, the World Trade Organisation convened in Seattle to discuss a new round of trade negotiations. This wet, windy, seaport city was suddenly under the spotlight. The conference was examining the potential to increase globalisation through new free trade agreements and tariffs between its member nations. But thousands of left-wing protesters had a different idea, resulting in a disastrous event with no new trade pact. Fourteen years later, the city elected its first unapologetic socialist to the council...

http://time.com/4634622/tunisia-truth-dignity-commission-zine-al-abidine-ben-ali/

"Everyone has to look at what happened, look at the reality, and not try to put it aside anymore"

They are dissidents who endured torture at the hands of the security forces. A mother of a young man shot dead during protests. Women stripped, raped and beaten by security officers. An opposition activist named Gilbert Naccache testified that while he was jailed, torture became routine. “You get used to it – 3, 4 days a week are painful,” he said, according to the International Center for Transitional Justice...

Not One Penny More to the Rich – An Essay of the Man From the North

http://www.riverasun.com/not-one-penny-more-to-the-rich-an-essay-of-the-man-from-the-north/

When times are bleak and darkness deepens, ancient yearnings of humanity stir in our hearts. We long for the simple things that our ancestors always sought: safety for our families, roofs over our heads, food in our bellies, rest for our weary bodies. In other words, we yearn for the basic human rights have been denied to far too many generations over the course of human history.

Throughout large swaths of history, the average human has been strapped to the yoke of economic injustice. Today, we are chained to jobs and bills and mounting debt. We are the workhorses of the modern-day wealthy. We labor to build their massive fortunes in a repetition of history as old as slaves building the pyramids, conscripts constructing the Great Wall of China, or the peons and peasants laboring to build the castles and cathedrals of Europe...

More than two dozen members of Congress are boycotting Donald Trump’s inauguration

http://fusion.net/story/380760/boycotting-inauguration-trump-list/

Civil rights hero Rep. John Lewis knows a thing or two about fighting for what’s right, and this week he’s taken another moral stand: refusing to attend the inauguration of Donald Trump.

Speaking to NBC News, the Georgia congressman said, “I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president… I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected.”...

FAVORITE QUOTES

That'll put marzipan in your pie plate, bingo! 

ANGEL - NOT FADE AWAY:

GUNN
What if I told you it doesn't help? What would you do if you found out that none of it matters? 
That it's all controlled by forces more powerful and uncaring than we can conceive, and they will never let it get better down here. What would you do?

ANNIE
I'd get this truck packed before the new stuff gets here. 
Wanna give me a hand?

TWO BY ABRAHAM LINCOLN: 

"We may congratulate ourselves that this cruel war is nearing its end.
It has cost a vast amount of treasure and blood. . . .
It has indeed been a trying hour for the Republic; but
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes
me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war,
corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places
will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong
its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth
is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.
I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety
of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war.
God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless."

The passage appears in a letter from Lincoln to (Col.) William F.
Elkins, Nov. 21, 1864.

See: http://www.ratical.org/corporations/Lincoln.html



"These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in
concert to fleece the people, and now that they have got
into a quarrel with themselves, we are called upon to
appropriate the people's money to settle the quarrel."

speech to Illinois legislature, Jan. 1837.
See Vol. 1, p. 24 of Lincoln's Complete Works,
ed. by Nicolay and Hay, 1905)
