American higher education has a great past, but will it have a great future? Not if we let neoliberal right-wingers decide.
Higher education must serve the public good and not corporate interests. It's time for professors to work together to rescue the American Education System.
The way we worship God turns him into a fetish, that is to say, a false god or an idol. This false god can become an instrument for all sorts of desires for power and domination.
Yanis Varoufakis dubbed himself an “erratic Marxist” and presented his interpretation of Marx in detail. But his dialectical spirit is unlikely to succeed.
We Europeans face a historic choice: either we further develop Europe as a single political entity, or we recede from the limelight.
