Degrowth: Toward a Green Revolution
Rob Urie | counterpunch.org | 2018-12-07
The Americanism that people will never voluntarily give up the consumption that is killing the planet represents the triumph of a long con. The problem that consumed (apologies) economists in the early twentieth century was how to get people to want the stuff that capitalism produces. Past the point of meeting basic needs, people really…

Progressive International: Yanis Varoufakis & Bernie Sanders Launch New Global Mvt Against Far Right
Democracy Now! | democracynow.org | 2018-12-07
The far right is rising in Europe, most recently in Spain, where the anti-immigrant, anti-abortion Vox party won multiple seats in a regional parliamentary election in Andalusia on Sunday. It was the first successful election for the far right in Spain since the country returned to democracy in the 1970s after the death of fascist military dictator Francisco Franco. We speak with economist and former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, who is launching a movement with Senator Bernie Sanders and others to fight right-wing forces around the globe.

Wisconsin Republicans Continue the GOP's Bid to Destroy Democracy
Sonali Kolhatkar | truthdig.com | 2018-12-07
The Republican Party has once more demonstrated that it has no respect for democracy and is determined to hold on to power by any means necessary. GOP state lawmakers in Wisconsin this week engaged in a brazen power grab in the form of bills that were introduced, debated and voted on with breathtaking speed in order to cripple the decision-making powers of Gov.-elect Tony Evers and Attorney General-elect Josh Kaul. Legislators called a special session late last Friday, and then, as protesters marched and rallied outside the state…

Jury fails to agree on verdict in trial of Kurdish journalist
peter_b | greenleft.org.au | 2018-12-07
NSW Supreme Court judge Lucy McCallum discharged the jury on December 6 after it failed to agree on a verdict in the trial of Kurdish journalist Renas Lelikan on "foreign fighter" charges under Australia's draconian "anti-terrorism" laws. | Lelikan denied this charge, insisting he was not a combatant but a journalist reporting on the Kurdish liberation struggle. | A February 15 hearing will be told if the prosecution intends to ask for a re-trial. Lelikan remains free on bail, with relaxed conditions. | The case had been going on for nine weeks, four of which have been taken up with the jury's deliberation. | Phi…

Sanders and DNC Level Playing Field for 2020 Presidential Debates
STAFF | truthdig.com | 2018-12-06
The Democratic Party's best-known outsider, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, appears to be on the verge of notching yet another inside-track score that doubtless will come in handy when he runs for president in 2020. | One of the biggest complaints by Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign was the way that the Democratic National Committee collaborated with Hillary Clinton's campaign to schedule its televised debates.

Unhinged GDP Growth Could Actually Destroy the Economy, Economists Find
