The Great Reset Conspiracy Smoothie The Great Reset through articles, videos, webinars, podcasts, and a book by WEF founder Klaus Schwab, provided a coronavirus-themed rebranding of all the things Davos does anyway, now hastily repackaged as a blueprint for reviving the global economy by "seeking a better form of capitalism."

Now We Have To Fight Trump's Tin-pot Coup -- And Biden's Worst Instincts We have to do it all: Stop the Republicans from stealing an election they lost and stop the Democrats from blowing a mandate they won.

We were told Joe Biden was the "safe choice." But it was risky to offer so little Even if the Democratic party base was much more politically aligned with Bernie Sanders, or Elizabeth Warren, in their support for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, for racial justice, the party was sure that Bernie Sanders was too risky. And so, as we all remember, they banded together and gave us Biden.

A Message From The Future II: The Years Of Repair With political and ecological fires raging all around, is it irresponsible to imagine a future world radically better than our own? A world where governments fear the people instead of the other way around?

How the Transformative Power of Solidarity Will Beat Trump Bernie Sanders has just done exactly what many critics have long called on him to do: He asked his supporters to dial back the personal attacks on rivals in the Democratic primary and focus on substantial policy differences.

Forget Bernie vs. Warren. Focus on Growing the Progressive Base and Defeating Biden. There is a small army of candidates, with two of the leaders running on platforms so far to the left, they would have been unimaginable for anyone but a protest candidate as recently as 2014. The front-runner, meanwhile, is eminently beatable (especially if Joe Biden keeps showing us exactly who he is, as he did about six times this week).

We're stepping up -- join us for a day to halt this climate crisis On 20 September, at the request of the young people who have been staging school strikes around the world, we're walking out of our workplaces and homes to spend the day demanding action on the climate crisis, the greatest existential threat that all of us face. This is going to be the beginning of a week of action all over the world. And we hope to make it a turning point in history.

A Message From the Future With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez The video is a seven-minute postcard from the future. It's about how, in the nick of time, a critical mass of humanity in the largest economy on earth came to believe that we were actually worth saving. Because, as Ocasio-Cortez says in the film, our future has not been written yet and "we can be whatever we have the courage to see."

The Game-Changing Promise of a Green New Deal The Copenhagen deal -- cooked up behind closed doors with the most vulnerable countries locked out -- amounted to a "grubby pact between the world's biggest emitters: I'll pretend that you are doing something about climate change if you pretend that I am too. Deal? Deal."

Capitalism Killed Our Climate Momentum, Not "Human Nature" We aren't losing earth -- but the earth is getting so hot so fast that it is on a trajectory to lose a great many of us. In the nick of time, a new political path to safety is presenting itself. This is no moment to bemoan our lost decades. It's the moment to get the hell on that path.

"New York City Is Taking a Game-Changing First Step in Turning the World Right Side Up" By suing the five oil majors who knowingly deepened the climate crisis, and simultaneously beginning the process of divesting $5-billion from fossil fuel companies, New York City is taking a game-changing first step in turning the world right side up. And not to overstate the case, this could change the world.

Hope Trumps Nope: A Blueprint for Resistance One of the most unjust aspects of climate disruption (and there are many) is that our actions as adults today will have their most severe impact on the lives of generations yet to come, as well as kids alive today who are too young to impact policy. They have done nothing to create the crisis, but they are the ones who will deal with the most extreme weather -- the storms and droughts and fires and rising seas.

A new shock doctrine: in a world of crisis, morality can still win Ours is an age when it is impossible to pry one crisis apart from all the others. They have all merged, reinforcing and deepening each other like one shambling, multi-headed beast. The current US president can be thought of in much the same way. It's tough to adequately sum him up. You know that horrible thing currently clogging up the London sewers, the fatberg? Trump is the political equivalent of that.

Irma Won't "Wake Up" Climate Change-Denying Republicans. Their Whole Ideology Is On The Line. We need to stop waiting for disasters to "wake up" hardcore deniers. But as Trump uses overlapping disasters of Harvey, Irma, North Korea, and whatever other hell he can exploit to smuggle through his cruel economic agenda, the rest of us should be wide awake to the reality that stopping him, and the worldview he represents, is a matter of humanity's collective survival.

Harvey Didn't Come Out Of The Blue. Now Is The Time To Talk About Climate Change. Talking honestly about climate change -- what is fueling this era of serial disasters -- even while they're playing out in real time -- isn't disrespectful to the people on the front lines. In fact, it is the only way to truly honor their losses, and our last hope for preventing a future littered with countless more victims.

It was the Democrats' embrace of neoliberalism that won it for Trump The Democratic party needs to be either decisively wrested from pro-corporate neoliberals, or it needs to be abandoned. From Elizabeth Warren to Nina Turner, to the Occupy alumni who took the Bernie campaign supernova, there is a stronger field of coalition-inspiring progressive leaders out there than at any point in my lifetime. We are "leaderful," as many in the Movement for Black Lives say.

Canada's founding myths hold us back from addressing climate change Our new government has adopted the utterly inadequate targets of the last government. Alberta has a climate plan that would allow tar sands emissions to increase by 43 percent, wholly incompatible with the goals of the Paris climate agreement. And the push for new pipelines -- often sold as "nation building" -- continues to tear us apart.

The best is yet to come The evidence is clear: The left just won. Forget the nomination -- I mean the argument. Clinton, and the 40-year ideological campaign she represents, has lost the battle of ideas. The spell of neoliberalism has been broken, crushed under the weight of lived experience and a mountain of data. Left ideas are popular just as they are, utterly unadorned. Really popular -- and in the most pro-capitalist country in the world.

The Problem With Hillary Clinton Isn't Just Her Corporate Cash. It's Her Corporate Worldview. While Clinton is great at warring with Republicans, taking on powerful corporations goes against her entire worldview, against everything she's built, and everything she stands for. The real issue, in other words, isn't Clinton's corporate cash, it's her deeply pro-corporate ideology: one that makes taking money from lobbyists and accepting exorbitant speech fees from banks seem so natural.
