2019: Und nicht vergessen: Solidarität
We live in fragmented times. Neoliberalism has radicalized what has always been the very essence of capitalism: to interrelate everyone—but as isolated entities. Virulent fascism seeks to remedy this neoliberal fragmentation by promising an exclusive form of »national solidarity«, basically, a means of securing one’s own wellbeing at others’ expense. By contrast, practices of true solidarity all over the world stand opposed to neoliberal-nationalist-fascist agendas. Their goal—communism, you might call it—is a solidary global community of free and equal people. Solidarity is both the means to reach this goal—and the goal itself.
