Why Obama is not a socialist

The Economist, the famous British magazine, in its first issues of 2013, ran on its cover a picture of U.S. President Obama wearing a striped shirt and a beret. It was a joke and a criticism directed towards Obama's politics.

In simple words, The Economist was clearly saying that the U.S. was becoming another version of France, a country with a long and strong history of social programs.

Of course, it didn't take long to have all the French media unleashing their wrath against those bad 'English' people with horrible taste.

Global capitalism and David McNally's monsters

Change the conversation, support rabble.ca today.

One of the many carnivalesque aspects of consumer society is the popular fascination -- and fashion -- oriented around various types of monsters. As with previous groups that rebelled via a parodic inversion against the regulatory demands of official culture -- such as hippies in the 1960s, skinheads in the 1980s and the occasional cyborg in the 1990s -- today's zombie and vampire enthusiasts present themselves in opposition to mainstream, bourgeois style, costume and aesthetics.
