Idehistorikeren Hans-Jørgen Schanz dør i Århus. Født 21. januar 1948 i Sønderborg.

Se:

Med en uophørlig energi bevægede Hans-Jørgen Schanz sig omkring i tankens grænseland (Information.dk, 9. februar 2022). “Hans-Jørgen Schanz bisættes i dag. Allerede i sine studieår skrev han sin første bog om Marx’ ’Kapitalen’ – en bog, der opnåede kultstatus og etablerede kapitallogikken. Schanz var medrivende tænksom og havde fandenivoldsk humor, skriver tidligere forstander på Testrup Højskole Jørgen Carlsen i denne personlige nekrolog.”

Med Hans-Jørgen Schanz’ død har vanetænkningen mistet en værdig modstander. Af Mikkel Thorup (Information.dk, 1. februar 2022). “Hans-Jørgen Schanz er død. Med ham dør en original stemme, der i seks årtier har udfordret de lette meninger og hurtige læsningers tyranni og presset os til at tænke selv. Med hans død har vanetænkning mistet en vigtig opponent, offentligheden en vigtig stemme og universitetet en indre kritiker.” Under betalingsmur.

Dødsfald: Markant Aarhus-professor er død. Af Kirstine Lefevre Sckerl (Århus Stiftstidende, 29. januar 2022). “Idéhistoriker, forfatter og professor emeritus ved Aarhus Universitet Hans-Jørgen Schanz er død, 74 år gammel.”

Hans-Jørgen Schanz er død. Læs eller genlæs interview med professoren, som tog et livsopgør med systemer. Af Bjørg Tulinius (Kristeligt Dagblad, 29. januar 2022). “Professor Hans-Jørgen Schanz var i 1970’erne og 1980’erne kendt som den bedste Marx-fortolker herhjemme. Nu er han død, 74 år. Kristeligt Dagblad har genudgivet dette interview med professoren fra 2015.”

Om ånd og socialisme. Af Hans-Jørgen Schanz (Solidaritet.dk, 16. januar 2021). “‘Verden er ved at blive så gennemsyret endimensionelt kræmmeragtig, at der ikke er nogen som helst grund til, at venstreorienterede bringer brænde til dette bål ved at understøtte åndsløsheden’. Idéhistorie-professor Hans-Jørgen Schanz skriver i dagens kronik om behovet for at tilføre ånd til socialistisk tænkning.”

Illustration til artiklen fra Information, 2008. Med billedtekst: “Ved udgangspunktet. Hans-Jørgens Schanz i den første storhedstid i 1970’erne …” (Foto: Mogens Laier).

Man tager fejl, hvis man tror, han har udskiftet hele sin dagsorden. Af Malin Schmidt (Information.dk, 2. februar 2008). “Forandring var drivkraften, da idéhistorikeren Hans-Jørgen Schanz i 1970’erne blev marxisternes teoretiske kultfigur. Senere blev han optaget af det liv, det moderne kan byde på. Altid med blik for det, der ikke kan forklares udtømmende af tidens skiftende teorier – om marxisme, modernitet, globalisering …”

På dansk (+ svensk):

Spørgsmål og svar: Find rundt i venstrefløjens debat om Ukraine. Af Bill Fletcher Jr. og Elly Leary (Socialistisk Information, 11. januar 2023). “Suverænitet og selvbestemmelse er vigtige begreber i centrum for venstrefløjens analyse – og kan hjælpe os med at orientere os i den forvirring og misinformation, der omgiver Ruslands krig mod Ukraine.” Også online på Solidaritet.dk/Kritisk Revy, nr.13, januar 2023).

Mod den russiske aggressionskrig. Af Catherine Samary (Solidaritet.dk/Kritisk Revy, nr.13, januar 2023). “Denne artikel diskuterer de fortolkninger af et NATO, der entydigt og uforanderligt opfattes som fjendtlig over for Rusland og en russisk krig, som en reaktion på denne fjendtlighed. Samtidig fremhæver artiklen den negative arv, som venstrefløjen skal overvinde i det nationale spørgsmål, når den indgår i et internationalistisk projekt, hvor målet er gennem de spørgsmål, som krigen har rejst, og det ukrainske folks forhåbninger, at finde frem til omridset af en alternativ, global modstand i og imod EU.”

Jeg er ukrainsk socialist. Her er grunden til, at jeg har meldt mig til at kæmpe imod Ruslands invasion. Af Taras Bilous (Solidaritet.dk, 10. august 2022). “Som socialist og internationalist afskyr jeg krig. Men den grundlæggende ret til selvbestemmelse retfærdiggør, at almindelige ukrainere går til modstand mod Vladimir Putins brutale invasion af vores land.”

Selvbestemmelse og krig i Ukraine: Derfor skal den europæiske venstrefløj støtte os! (Solidaritet.dk, 18. maj 2022). “Vi kan ikke vide, hvordan Ukraine vil udvikle sig efter krigen. Men vi ved, at det vil få forfærdelige konsekvenser, hvis Rusland vinder. Den ukrainske socialist Taras Bilous gør status to måneder efter hans første ‘brev til den vestlige venstrefløj’.”

New Left Review om kriget i Ukraina (pdf) (Marxistarkiv.se, 28. april 2022, 14 s.). “Tre artiklar ur senaste numret av New Left Review som på ett genomgripande sätt behandlar bakgrunden till kriget i Ukraina, och bl a tar upp NATO’s roll.” Se Tony Wood på dansk: Krigens matrix (Solidaritet.dk/Kritisk Revy, 15. juni 2022).

Brev fra Kyiv til venstrefløjen i Vesten. Af Taras Bilous (Solidaritet.dk/Kritisk Revy, 28. marts 2022). “Hvorfor vendte så mange venstreorienterede det blinde øje til den russiske aggression?”

De russiske småstater i Donbas er ikke ‘folkerepublikker’. Af Simon Pirani (Socialistisk Information, 9. marts 2022). “Putin påstår, han forsvarer befolkningen i Donbas. I realiteten kontrollerer Kreml de to småstater, der domineres af militære regler og undertrykker den organiserede arbejdskraft – en bekymrende indikator for Putins fremtidige planer for naboregionerne.”

Krigen i Ukraine: Hvad har vi gjort, og hvad kan vi gøre (Eftertryk, 6. marts 2022). Interview med Noam Chomsky: “Ruslands invasion af Ukraine vil gå over i historien som en af de store krigsforbrydelser i det 21. århundrede … De politiske hensyn, der fremføres af den russiske præsident, Vladimir Putin, retfærdiggør ikke en invasion af en suveræn nation. I lyset af den forfærdelige invasion bør USA ikke desto mindre vælge diplomati frem for militær eskalering.”

”International antikrigssolidaritet!” – venstrefløjsstemmer fra Ukraine og Rusland (Autonom Infoservice, 5. marts 2022). “Som modvægt bringer vi her stemmer fra forskellige venstre- orienterede grupper i begge de to lande.”

Nej til Putins Krig og amerikanske tropper i Danmark! Af Torkil Lauesen (Konfront.dk, 3. marts 2022). “I nedenstående indlæg trædes et skridt tilbage for at dække de brede linjer og baggrunden for den igangværende krig i Ukraine.”

Efter invasion i Ukraine: Eksperter i konfliktløsning: Mægling og diplomati er eneste vej til fred (Arbejderen.dk, 3. marts 2022). “Søren Riishøj og Jan Øberg er eksperter i international konfliktløsning. De slår fast, at det eneste, der kan stoppe krigen i Ukraine, er mægling og diplomati. Der er brug for deeskalation – men lige nu sker det modsatte.”

Almindelige russere støtter heller ikke Putins krig! Af Ilya Budraitskis og Ilya Matveev (Solidaritet.dk, 25. februar 2025). “Vladimir Putin har indledt en invasion af Ukraine, og regner tilsyneladende med hurtigt at kunne knække den ukrainske modstand. Men angrebet kan destabilisere hans regime, og russerne viser allerede tegn på ikke at støtte krigen.”

Ukraine – Rusland: Krise, krig og protester (Autonom Infoservice, 25. februar 2022). “Ruslands magtelites bestræbelser på at opretholde landets stormagtsstatus – Erklæring fra russiske anarkister – Antikrigsprotester i Rusland og internationalt.”

“Krigsforbrydere ryger direkte i helvede”: sådan har verden reageret på Putins invasion af Ukraine. Af Morten Hammeken (Solidaritet.dk, 24. februar 2022). “Ukraine har nu kappet alle diplomatiske bånd til Rusland … Vesten har lovet sanktioner og mere oprustning, mens Kina holder sig neutral. Imens forsøger Putin at overbevise den russiske befolkning om, at hans invasion i Ukraine i virkeligheden er fredsbevarende.”

Harsh critique of Chomsky on Ukraine. By Stanley Heller (New Politics, April 18, 2022). “A discussion with Noam Chomsky was called ‘A Left response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine’.  It wouldn’t be far wrong to say Chomsky placed all of the blame for Russia’s attack on the U.S. government. The title of the event should have been ‘Chomsky calls for realpolitik for the 21st century’.”

Ukraine neo-Nazis pictured with UK-made rocket launchers. By Matt Kennard and Mark Curtis (Declassified UK, 10 March 2022). “Amid ongoing atrocities by Russian forces in Ukraine, far-right resistance groups appear to be in possession of UK-made anti-tank weapons. Neo-Nazi parties have failed at the ballot box. But the far-right plays a disproportionate role in the country’s security forces and its members are regarded as some of Ukraine’s most effective fighters.”

The war in Ukraine: no choice but to resist (ROAR Magazine, March 8, 2022). Interview with Oksana Dutchak: “For many Ukrainians, Russia’s invasion has made talks of neutrality and negotiations redundant. Right now, their focus is on survival and resistance.”

A memorandum on the radical anti-imperialist position regarding the war in Ukraine. By Gilbert Achcar (New Politics, February 27, 2022). “Beyond general condemnation of the Russian invasion, there has also been some confusion in the ranks of the true anti-imperialists about the specific position to take on issues related to the ongoing war. It is important to clarify these issues.”

He had many qualities, including an unshakeable will to fight against injustice, for social emancipation and for the end of all forms of oppression.”

The integrity of a revolutionary: Alain Krivine, 1941-2022. By Edwy Plenel (International Viewpoint, 16 March 2022). “The death of Alain Krivine on 12 March, aged eighty, saw the passing of the last of the leading ‘68ers who had remained faithful to the revolts of his youth, mixing anti-imperialism, anti-Stalinism and anti-capitalism.”

Alain Krivine: 1941-2022 (Counterfire, March 14, 2022). “Chris Bambery remembers the life of French revolutionary, Alain Krivine … he remained a revolutionary socialist and upheld the possibility of revolution he had seen in May ’68. He was a comrade and a giant figure in the revolutionary movement.”

Alain Krivine — a resolute revolutionary: A veteran of 1968. By Alex Callinicos (Socialist Worker, 14 March 2022). “Even at this tragic historical moment, I was saddened to learn of the death at the age of 80 of the French revolutionary leader Alain Krivine. For me he always represented the indomitable spirit of the great revolt by French workers and students in May 1968.”

Alain Krivine (1941-2022). By Darren Roso (Red Flag, 14 March 2022). “Krivine’s death marks the symbolic end of a generation of French Trotskyism. With his death, we not only lose one of the key student leaders of the ‘68 events, but also a revolutionary without whom the old heritage and tradition of the earliest anti-Stalinism may not have survived into a new generation.”

Alain Krivine: French revolutionary socialist – 1941-2022. By Dan La Botz (New Politics, March 12, 2022). “A leader in the student and anti-imperialist movements of the 1960s, an important figure in the May 1968 upheaval in France, he was for many years one of the best-known figures of the French left.”

Mangeårig socialist (VS, Kommunistisk Forbund (KF) og Enhedslisten), fagforeningsmand og  tidligere formand i HRF (Hotel- og Restaurationspersonalets Forbund) Bent Moos dør. (Født 15. februar 1945 i Sønderborg).

Mindeord: Bent Moos var strategisk tænker og pragmatisk fagforeningsmand. Af Ole Wugge Christiansen (Solidaritet.dk, 19. april 2022). “Bent Moos var i 1970’erne en markant figur i VS-udbrydergruppen Kommunistisk Forbund, men skiftede politisk bane, da gruppen vendte tilbage til partiet. Han kastede sig over det faglige arbejde, hvor han dygtigt balancerede mellem sin egen radikale baggrund og medlemmernes interesser.”

Bent Moos bisættes i dag (Facebook, 20. april 2022). Konstitueret gruppeformand for 3F PSHR, John Frederiksen: “Du vil for mig altid stå som en af de største – også som en læremester man bare aldrig blev træt af, fyldt med energi og gåpåmod, altid klar på, at der findes en løsning derude, et eller andet sted.”

Mit faglige idol – Bent Moos er gået bort. Af Sinem Demir (Facebook, 10. april 2022). “Bent Moos er årsagen til, at jeg endte med at blive tillidsrepræsentant, og blive aktivt medlem i 3F … Bent er et kæmpe tab for 3F, for Enhedslisten og for alle os tjenere der jo ikke rigtigt har andre faglige idoler fra egen branche.”

Podcast: Bent Moos om Kommunistisk Forbund (Solidaritet.dk, 28. november 2018). “Radioaktivs Vand Under Broen har denne gang besøg af Bent Moos, der livet igennem har været fagligt og politisk aktiv på den danske venstrefløj.”

Defensiv forsvarskamp skal vendes til kamp for systemforandring. Af Jeppe Rohde (Modkraft.dk, 6. marts 2014). “Enhedslisten tilhører en udogmatisk og mangfoldig venstresocialistisk tradition i arbejderbevægelsen, der adskiller sig fra både reformisme og stalinisme. Det skal et nyt program fastholde, mener Bent Moos, veteran på venstrefløjen.”

Almengørelse af overenskomster. Af Bent Moos (Modkraft.dk, 4. juli 2011). “En lovsikret mulighed for almengørelse af overenskomster er et nødvendigt supplement i kampen for overenskomstdækning. Da det er et kontroversielt synspunkt på den faglige venstrefløj har det været nødvendigt med en grundig gennemgang af forslaget og en grundig tilbagevisning af de normale modargumenter.” Udvidet udgave i Tidsskrift for arbejdsliv (pdf) (nr.2, 2012, s.105-116).

Samling på venstrefløjen (Forbundetkf.dk). “Præsentation af KF forud for tilbagevenden til VS i 1980 med syn på strategi, socialismeopfattelse, Socialdemokratiet og fagbevægelsen, kvindekampen, boligkampen, klasseanalyse mv. i hæftet Samling på venstrefløjen [Kommunistisk Forbund, oktober 1979, 47 s.].”

Mike Davis, 1946-2022. By Bryan D. Palmer (Against the Curret, Issue 222, January-February 2023). “He left us as his legacy a library of thought, reflection and resolute dedication. Militants and mavericks, radicals, rebels, and revolutionaries, will be reading Mike Davis for decades to come.”

The legacy of Mike Davis’s Late Victorian Holocausts. By Jon Masin-Peters (Jacobin, November 26, 2022). “In Late Victorian Holocausts, Mike Davis showed how late 19th-century state violence and neglect created colonial markets and infrastructures, which, combined with shifting weather patterns, led to astonishingly brutal famines across the Global South.”

Nearly four decades later Davis revisited the book in an interview with Jacobin [2021].”

The political importance of Mike Davis. By Phil Hearse (Anti-Capitalist Resistance, 29 October 2022). “From the 1980s until his death in California in 2022, Mike Davis was among the most influential Marxist theorists writing in the English language.”

Mike Davis’s many contributions to building a better world will live on. By Barry Eidlin (Jacobin, October 29, 2022). “No leftist writer can compare to Mike Davis — not in clarity, breadth, generosity, or ironclad commitment to the working class.

Mike Davis was the best socialist writer of the last half century. By Owen Hatherly (Jacobin, October 27, 2022). “Mike Davis forced himself to look at the very worst of our society and world. What he found wasn’t pretty. Yet he never abandoned the search for seeds of positive change — and for socialism.”

By Dan La Botz (New Politics, October 26, 2022). “… he spent his entire life as a socialist activist, generously supporting every social and labor movement on the left.

Mike Davis showed us what ‘old-school socialism’ looked like. By Micah Uetricht (Jacobin, October 26, 2022). “The Marxist writer and activist Mike Davis died yesterday at the age of 76. His astonishing body of work will be impossible for anyone to replicate – but all of us can emulate his example of how to live and fight as an ‘old-school socialist’.”
