Is Merkel kind of a dictator?

In the larger scheme of the World, it’s not hard to certainly say that Angela Merkel has strong dictatorial streak. Much like every other level of German society – authority figures have very high discretionary rights and very little accountability. Not just chancellor (making immigration decision) but also teacher (grading students), landlords (preferentially renting house), or nightclubs (profiling Club goers at entrance). Also, long term chancellors are quite common in Germany. Kohl was chancellor for 16 years. Adenauer 14 years. This doesn’t mean that they are dictators. When they are elected out of office, they go. The comparatively long stays in office have more to do with the German dislike of all changes.

Bernie Sanders vs Donald Trump

Norway is far away, but Bernie could bring that peace of Norwegian woods that melt the best of the theory of the state and open market societies.

Why Roma deserves the Oscar?

Is not about Trump, racism or something like that here. Is not about other films. Roma is something to see if you lived in Mexico City in the sixties and seventies. Mexico city as almost all Latin America was a background of the U.S. Military Forces. That is why the military took place in the…

With Argentina’s help, Mexico starts a search for the disappeared

The Mexican government has just assumed something that thousands of Mexicans have known and suffered for a long time: their territory became “a huge clandestine grave. This is how crude the administration of Andrés Manuel López Obrador recognized it this week when it launched a program to search for and identify the 40,000 disappeared who…

Republicanism: The true Bolivarian Venezuela

The situation that Venezuela is experiencing gives us to think how the evils of yesteryear are reborn in history as if humanity did not learn anything from them.

Israel and the rise of fascism

In recent years, the advance of far-right forces has been a concern for a left unable to understand itself outside the framework imposed by capitalism.
