Job seeker, 21, with 3 A-levels and 10 GCSEs, kills herself after she was rejected for ... - 0 views

  •  
    this article is about an unemployed youth who could not find work. She was (at least partially) university educated. throughout the article, the writer points to how this case is not unusual, since the number of young employed seeking jobseeker status in the UK doubled from 2008 to 2010.

    This fits with my idea that the young of this world will rise up as a generation against capitalism. From this outrage, something must come to revolt against it. It's worth noting that this took place in 2010.

The Mirage of Neo-Communism | Dissent Magazine - 0 views

  •  
    This is Jodi Dean responding to a critical review of The Communist Horizon. The critique ends with pessimism and dismissal of communism: I remain pessimistic about the likelihood that these forces will effectively organize an alternative to the current neoliberal hegemony. Contrary to Marx's famous quip, mankind does not always set for itself only problems it is able to solve. And it is likely that the range of problems currently before us will persist and even grow, and that an effective political response will not be forthcoming. This is a reason to refrain from celebrating a post-historical dispensation or from mythologizing the power of the democratic Left. But it is also a reason to refrain from mythologizing communism or fantasizing about a "communist horizon." Communism was a god that failed. And the communist horizon is a fantasy of salvation.

Federal judge rules New York "stop-and-frisk" policing unconstitutional - 0 views

    in the article:
    A major element of the New York Police Department's longstanding "stop-and-frisk" policy was declared unconstitutional in a ruling announced by U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin on January 8.
    The federal judge's decision came after a seven-day hearing last fall on the NYPD's "Clean Halls" program, under which landlords of private buildings enroll in the Trespass Affidavit Program (TAP), requesting that police patrol their buildings and arrest trespassers. According to one report, 3,261 buildings in the Bronx participate in this program, and 8,032 citywide. The court decision applies only to the Bronx buildings.
