Året 2020 / The year 2020

  • Happy New Year – for some (In Defence of Marxism, 8 January 2021). “Alan Woods looks at the tumultuous state of the world at the dawn of 2021.”
  • Nytårsstatus 2021. Af Torkil Lauesen (Konfront.dk, 8. januar 2021). “I sidste års status lovede jeg et dramatisk 2020. Det blev det. En global økonomisk krise var under opsejling i begyndelsen af 2020 … Men pludselig i marts 2020 satte Covid-19 pandemien en helt ny, men ikke mindre dramatisk global dagsorden.”

Oprøret i Washington. Af SAPs Forretningsudvalg (Socialistisk Information, 19. januar 2021). “En af forudsætningerne for et kup af denne art er en støtte til det fra centrale dele af kapitalistklassen og statsapparatet. Men det, vi har set, parallelt med Trumps forsøg på at omstøde valgresultatet, har været, at såvel erhvervsliv som hæren har trukket stikket i forhold til Trump.”

Fejlslagent fascistisk kup i USA? Af Peer Møller Christensen (Kritisk Revy, 15. januar 2021). “Besættelsen af Kongresbygningen og forsøget på med våbenmagt at tvinge den retmæssigt valgte politiske ledelse i USA til at overgive magten til Trump, er udtryk for, at en fascistisk bevægelse er vokset frem i USA …” Se også Niels Frølich: Borgerkrig i USA? (15. januar 2021).

Vänsterpress om USA – mitten av januari 2021 (pdf) (Marxistarkiv.se, 15.1.2021). “Donald Trumps saga som USA:s president är snart slut. Hans sista desperata drag att inspirera till en attack på kongressen i Washington slog slint. Vilket efterspelet blir återstår dock att se.” Se også: Vänsterpress om USA – februari 2021 (pdf) (Marxistarkiv.se, 4.2.2021).

“Det er for nemt at kalde demonstranterne foran USA’s kongres fascister” (Arbejderen.dk, 14. januar 2021). Interview med den amerikanske folkesanger David Rovics, som “…  kritiserer progressive medier og revolutionære, venstreorienterede kræfter for at fremstille begivenhederne forenklet og sort-hvidt.”

Klovneoptoget i onsdags var ikke ‘uamerikansk’. Det var ærkeamerikansk! Af Morten Hammeken (Solidaritet.dk, 8. januar 2021). “Onsdagens optøjer var kulminationen på 4 år med Donald Trump ved roret. Men racisme og konspirationsteorier har fulgt med USA hele vejen.”

Trumps “opstand” og det amerikanske borgerlige demokratis kaos (Revolution, 11. januar 2021). Oversat fra Marxist.com, 7. januar. “Disse begivenheder er bestemt dramatiske! Men som marxister må vi opretholde en proportionssans. Dette var ikke et organiseret opstandskup, der var på grænsen til at vælte den amerikanske regering og indsætte et fascistisk regime for at knuse arbejderne og venstrefløjen.”

Writings on the “putsch” (Tempest, January 16, 2021). “Aron Amaral and Scott McLemee provide a digest, with links and excerpts, of some of the best of the recent commentary about the events at the U.S. capitol on January 6, 2021.”

The meaning of January 6, 2021. By Bryan D. Palmer (Jacobin, January 26, 2021). “A long history suggests that while the crisis of the moment dictates directing the state’s security resources and personnel toward the Right, this focus will, inevitably, shift back to the Left.”

How the QAnon cult stormed the Capitol. By Daniel Bessner and Amber A’Lee Frost (Jacobin, January 19, 2021). “Perhaps the strangest thing about the media coverage of the Capitol Hill rally was how little of it focused on the visible presence of QAnon. What’s behind the Q cult, and how can we confront it?” See also: Everything you always wanted to know about QAnon but were too weirded out to ask (Jacobin, January 28, 2021).

The fight against Trumpism: lessons of Hitler’s Munich Putsch. By John Westmoreland (Counterfire, January 14, 2021). “As far as historical parallels can be made, we must draw the lessons from the past in the fight against fascism.”

Trump’s ‘march on Rome’. By Daniel Lazare (Weekly Worker, Issue 1330, 14 January 2021). “The January 6 uprising was not a simulacrum, but the real thing: America’s most serious constitutional breakdown since the Civil War. If the coup had succeeded, it would have plunged the US into a period of dark authoritarianism …”

Insurgent movement, government complicity, or both? By Xloi and B. Sandor (ThreeWayFight, January 13, 2021). “This article by two Three Way Fight comrades highlights the interplay between insurgent far rightists and forces within the state itself in the Capitol takeover.”

Desperado in the White House: coup fails, Trump faces impeachment. By Dan La Botz (New Politics, January 12, 2021). “We have to call this a failed coup because the intent was to overturn the election of Joseph Biden by forcing vice-president Mike Pence and the Congress to declare Trump the president.”

The Trump insurrection: A Marxist analysis. By Paul Mason (Medium.com, 12 January 2021). “Whether planned or stochastic, it was still a coup.”

The invasion of Capitol Hill: decaying institutions, rightwing insurrection, and the need for a mass movement. By Cihan Tugal (New Politics, January 11, 2021). “The most significant aspect of January 6, then, is not that the radical right stormed the Congress. It is rather that the authorities allowed them to do so.”

We underestimate the far Right at our own peril. By Benjamin L. McKean (Jacobin, January 7, 2021). “Yesterday’s riot of Trump supporters at the US Capitol will likely be a radicalizing event for the far right. We shouldn’t underestimate their ability to cause more death and destruction in the aftermath.”

The insurrection was predictable. By David Sirota (Jacobin, January 7, 2021). “Yesterday’s events were the expression of a dangerous authoritarian movement that has been long in the making.”

We must stand united against Trump and the insurgent far right (Marx21, January 7, 2021). “While Trump lacks the institutional support to pull off a coup in earnest, the rally was a show of force from Trump loyalists, far right groups, and fascists as they continue to organize themselves into a dangerous, coordinated threat unlike anything we have seen in recent US history.”

This was no Joke—Trump’s attempted coup against democracy on January 6. By Peter Hudis (The International Marxist-Humanist, January 7, 2021). “The foiled attack on the Capitol by neo-fascist white nationalists on January 6 marks a potential turning point in combatting the reactionary currents of which Trump is but the mouthpiece and expression.”
