Talking with Jacobin staff writer Luke Savage on the political past, present and future of Israel
what a warm and rousing 🔥 you've brought! “fuck bibi, get matcha” would be a good song for this season, I’d say — love seeing your words in Jacobin, your gift of imparting understanding of political consciousness is a salve for the sores of our age. you’re telling me that Bibi “stochastically” assassinated his political rival, and that we've had effectively a racist warlord running the remains of a labor-built democratic state ever since? yeah seems pretty obvious in retrospect that Barack Obama was not in a position to call Bibi's bluff.
if you're looking for suggestions, are you familiar with a 📙 book of history called This Vast Southern Empire? I'm getting the sense that if you keep peeling back the ruins of the Likud onion, we'll find ourselves in 1864, with the then-Republican primary challenger Frémont seeing that if he continues to push a platform of racial equality and post-gentry society, under first-past-the-post electoral politics, that the plurality would favor tolerating slavery and race fantasy. we need to face the music at home, come to understand the impossible choices we’ve faced before, and see what is possible for us now
I think an article forecasting the gubernatorial races in 2024 would be interesting
found this substack a week ago and I really like it. could someone explain the name to me?
I'd love to see an in-depth take from you on the current state of of UK politics. Can an entire country earn an Art of Losing?
Post-Bibi Israel might be interesting, assuming it wasn't part of this Savage thing I still haven't read yet.
Otherwise looking at what the US looks like once they finally accept that a convicted criminal is going to be the Republican nominee. Is the rule of law finally dead in America or will it limp along for a few more years until the Plutocracy is finally accepted as normal
The interview was hugely helpful as someone whose post-1973 history is pretty hazy, great work.
