Dru Oja Jay breaks down the manifest necessity and moral hazards of political compromise

Pretty Heady Stuff

Dru Oja Jay is a writer, organizer and web developer. He's currently hosting a podcast called Half Past Capitalism, and serving as both the Executive Director of CUTV, Canada's oldest campus-based TV station, and as publisher of The Breach, an independent media outlet producing critical journalism at a time when it is urgently needed. He's written a number of stirring articles for The Breach, and he's also the co-author, with Nikolas Barry-Shaw, of an invaluable book called Paved with Good Intentions: Canada's Development NGOs from Idealism to Imperialism. There's no getting around it, though: the state of the journalistic profession is looking bleak. Dru talks about how social media has meant a “shifting of roles” for journalists and widespread “disempowerment in the sector” that runs alongside the public's lack of confidence in journalism during the neoliberal period. More particularly, he says that social media and what he calls “algorithmic curation” is a kind “race” where “society is coming apart,” and in which a multitude of competing organizations are trying to establish the dominant “pattern of thinking.” What's necessary, in this context, is for those on the Left to commit to radically deepening democracy, even as we labour under the force of “mega corporations” that constrain the flow of information. There are multiple demobilizing forces converging in the current moment. Jay talks about his research into the effects of NGOs, how they have tended historically, despite their good intentions, to deradicalize movements. In fact, he claims that we are currently seeing “systematic and cynical work to derail” the climate movement through the professionalization of activism in NGOs. What he laments is the loss of “direct accountability” and the constitutive links that movements have with their members as groups become incrementally more accountable to funders over time. A major theme here is the problem of how particular “patterns of thinking” are created, and then become very difficult to dislodge. We discuss the ways that geopolitical patterns of thinking have historically undermined any notion of a rules-based international order. He offers some nuanced analysis of the role of NATO in creating the conditions for the crisis in Ukraine, while necessarily dwelling with the impossible contradictions of that military conflict and the terrifying possibility that it could mean nuclear war, given the brazen ways that major powers are dealing with, and have dealt with, the prospect of nuclear annihilation in the past and present. It's clear that, for Jay, we also need to unpack and come to terms with the “collective trauma” of settler colonialism and how it lives on in “scars” and “patterns of thought” we inherit. He underscores the ongoing violence of colonial oppression, and how, today, Indigenous peoples are “handcuffed to an objective measure” of climate collapse in ways that reinforce the ties between racism and capitalism. We talk in bluntly critical ways about how, as he puts it, capitalism is always “looking over your shoulder”—creating, commodifying and exploiting our relationships in its image. For this reason, perhaps, he stresses the importance of class as a site of social transformation, especially in relation to established and emerging environmental movements, where we are starting to realize that we share a grim fate under “the brutality of petro-states.” Wars are spreading globally and the climate emergency is accelerating. What are we going to do? Jay makes it clear that the crises we face are going to require mass mobilization to upend them, and that part of the battle involves confronting the class privilege and extreme wealth that makes it too easy for some to just basically refuse to perceive reality as it is.

Originally published April 7, 2022, at Driving Home the Faith. Republished by Ruth Institute on April 25, 2022   In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we tune in to Fr. Rob Jack's show on Sacred Heart Radio, Driving Home the Faith. Here he interviews Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse. They discuss many hot button topics that you are sure to want to hear. Of note, they consider the recent confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court and the irony of her appointment: President Biden announced he'd be appointing a woman, but the woman he appointed can't even define what a woman is. Dr. Morse offers for our consideration Justice Jackson's previous track record on child pornography and the exporters of it. You'll probably not hear about that one in the news so be sure to hear Dr. Morse talk about this. Dr. Morse explains how a redefinition of childhood had to take place in order for the Sexual Revolution to advance its agenda of separating sex from babies and consequently babies from parents and marriage. Dr. Morse asks from where our basic human rights come, because if it is not from God then it will necessarily come from the state as she hypothesizes Judge Jackson believes. Perhaps the greatest point that Dr. Morse makes in this episode is that ideological imperialism is the necessary evil of the Sexual State to achieve its end and Judge Jackson is the Sexual State in robe and gavel. Dr. Morse concludes with discussing with Fr. Rob Jack the recent gallup poll finding which may be the greatest evidence that shows that there is no gay gene and ‘born gay' is scientifically untenable: epidemics of genetic illnesses do not exist. Continue listening to hear the facts.   You've been listening to the Ruth Institute Podcast where we just heard Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse on Sacred Heart Radio's show, Driving Home the Faith with Fr.

REBROADCAST OF Internationalism as Defense against Fascism and Imperialism A reading from Eric Mann's The Ghosts, Dreams, Bones, and Lives of the Oppressed Peoples must shape the Nightmares and Hopes of The Revolutionaries in the oppressor nations Tuesday March 29, 2022 | 3 PM PST This week on Voices we present a rebroadcast of Internationalism as Defense against Fascism and Imperialism. Originally aired January 2021, we think this show is now even more relevant as ever given the US/Nato driven conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Take a moment to read the original text we sent and please send us your comments and reflections to eric@voicesfromthefrontlines.com and channing@voicesfromthefrontlines.com Original announcement: In this episode of Voices from the Frontlines, Eric Mann reads from his article published as the introduction to the German edition of Playbook for Progressives: The Ghosts, Dreams, Bones, and Lives of the Oppressed Peoples must shape the Nightmares and Hopes of The Revolutionaries in the oppressor nations This article is the author's introduction of Road for Revolutionaries: the 16 Qualities of the Transformative Organizer, the German translation of Playbook for Progressives: 16 Qualities of the Successful Organizer, by Eric Mann. In this episode, Eric urges for more internationalism, as both perception and praxis, as he grapples with Europe's, specifically Germany's, history of fascism, imperialism, colonialism, and racism, and the undeniable parallel within the United States. “If we're trying to understand why 74 million people voted for Donald Trump … the roots between the Germans and the United States whites, the so called founding fathers, where they both had a theory of being a master race. As did the Spanish, as did the Portuguese. The role of Christianity, the role of whiteness, the role of perceiving the world as populated by people that were simply pre-German or pre-Portuguese, you know they were just there until the chosen people of their God will annihilate them.” Eric situates the contemporary revolution of anti-fascists and anti-imperialists within the history of European colonialism, and presents internationalism as a necessary factor for true liberation. We must acknowledge and understand the atrocities committed under the rule of imperialism, the highest form of capitalism, both globally and locally. “We have the rise of fascism in Germany. We have the rise of fascism in every European country, and God knows we've had this close to a fascist seizure of power in the United States. But please don't read me stories about genocide, I want to have a more pleasant day.” Eric Mann provides archival and anecdotal evidence, and lays down the framework to enhance one's capabilities to be a truly transformative organizer. “It's the moral responsibility of Germans, and people all over the world to make sure that the German genocide in Africa is not lost in the so-called exalted silence of eternity, and to ensure the ghosts, dreams, bones and lives of the oppressed people must shape the nightmares and hopes of revolutionaries in the oppressor nations.”

Populorum Progressio, Pope Paul VI, 1967This was a class lecture, delivered in late 2020.  (Sorry for the occasional distractions)  It focuses upon one of the most significant of the papal encyclicals, one that engaged the concept of liberation theology.  Paul VI considered himself a Third World Pope, someone whose responsibilities stretched far beyond the Catholic world.  This is an extremely deep, very intellectual encyclical.  It would be good if you would download the encyclical and have it in front of you as a reference as you listen.   If we use the word “radical” to mean “going to the roots of a problem” then this document is radical.   It is also very sympathetic to the uprisings in Central America at the time. Pay special attention to the Three New Teachings, i.e., things the pope is saying that pushes church teachings beyond what it had been before. This was released in 1967 on Easter weekend.  The pope read it to an assembled crowd of cardinals and other church leaders.  If you have listened to the podcast on Rerum Novarum, these two go together well, but are quite different.  Some terms you will encounterJust WarSt. Thomas, St. AugustineColonialism and imperialismFinance capital, the international imperialism of money, economic dictatorshipLiberalism as an ideology of capitalism Two Realms/ Two PlainsEcclesiastical VocationHumanae Vitae, an encyclicalNatural lawJust wage and just trade agreements

In this episode we interview Robbie McVeigh and Bill Rolston, authors of the book Anois ar theacht an tSamraidh: Ireland Colonialism and the Unfinished Revolution, a work that may be unparalleled in its analysis of the history of colonialism and modes of anti-imperialist struggle across Irish history.  It covers 800 years of history of colonialism in Ireland, and pays particular attention to the various colonial forms British Imperialism imposes upon the people of the island.  It also takes a deep dive into examining the contradictions of each of the Irish states that emerge from partition, an undemocratic and colonial imposition that the Irish people have yet to dismantle. Along the way the book also deals with important questions of race, gender and the position of Ireland in relation to the British Empire. At its core the book demonstrates that Ireland has not achieved decolonization even in the 26 counties in the South, but argues that self-determination for Irish people is within reach, perhaps closer now than it has been in a century. In our conversation we explore many of these topics as well as An Gorta Mór, the British starvation of Ireland often misnamed/misunderstood as the "Potato Famine." We talk about the unexpected possibilities and contradictions created by the UK's reactionary Brexit maneuvering. We talk about resonances between Ireland and other sites of settler colonialism, and discuss how racism and religious sectarianism are interwoven in the Irish context. We also ask Robbie & Bill about the legacy of Irish anti-imperial struggle, which is significant and innovative, but is also checkered by a history of figures who failed to demonstrate solidarity to other anti-colonial struggles and marginalized peoples. They also discuss the complexity of Irish involvement in colonial management, and racial regimes outside of the Irish context. We want to give a special shout-out to Liberated Texts (you can order volume 1 here) and Chris Beausang for the review which alerted us to the existence of this book.  And just note that you can order it directly from Ireland at Beyondthepalebooks.com. And if you're listening in North America I'll just add that the good people at leftwingbooks.net have ordered some copies so you should be able to order it there soon as well. One more note, Dhoruba Bin Wahad is mentioned in passing during the show. Dhoruba who has lived a life in struggle for Black Liberation is currently battling stage 4 cancer and has a gofundme to support his treatment and care.
