Back in the SFRY: Yugo-Nostalgia and Dreams of Communism – Political Critique [DISCONTINUED]

02 Aug 2017  |  politicalcritique.org
The article explores the collective memory and current sentiments of the people in the former Yugoslavia regarding the era under Tito's communist rule. The author, through conversations with locals and referencing a Gallup poll, finds a pervasive nostalgia for the unity, economic stability, and social services of that time. Despite the oppression and dictatorship of the era, many from the region reflect on it with a sense of longing, particularly in contrast to the high unemployment and ethnic tensions that followed Yugoslavia's breakup. The article suggests that while a return to the old Yugoslavia is impossible, understanding the past can inform the future.

The Myth of the Sudden Rise of the Far Right

18 Apr 2017  |  Novara Media
The article challenges the narrative of a sudden rise of the far right in Western politics, focusing on France's Front National (FN) and its leader, Marine Le Pen. It traces the origins of FN's popularity back to the 1960s, arguing that its growth has been gradual rather than explosive. The piece examines historical events that contributed to the party's rise, including the 1981 Socialist victory in France and subsequent anti-socialist sentiment. Despite recent media frenzy, the article suggests that FN's support has increased only marginally over the past 15 years. It also highlights the potential for Le Pen's support to wane as undecided voters make their decisions. The author warns against the narrative that the working class is inherently far-right or xenophobic, emphasizing their progressive potential. The article concludes by critiquing centrist claims that they are the sole force capable of opposing the right, advocating instead for a strong, independent left.
