Editorial (Irish Marxist Review 2014 Vol 3 Number 10): Revolution at the Ballot Box

10

jun 14

 

The General Election of 2011 which brought the downfall of Fianna Fail and the Greens was described as a ‘riot at the ballot box’. The Independent called the recent local and European election results a ‘revolution at the ballot box’.

 

Megan Trudell: The First World War: Slaughter and Resistance

The First World War is much written about and romanticised, both for its horror and its sense of the ‘community of the trenches’. Historical accounts of the war has been increasingly of the revisionist variety over the last few years.

 

Paul O’Brien: Ireland and the Great War

After the flag waving and pageants that the Irish state indulged in to celebrate the centenary of 1913 Lockout, the first in a decade-long series of centenaries, the hundredth anniversary of World War I is upon us.

 

John Molyneux: Art and the First World War

Art reflects society. This statement, which is based on a core proposition of historical materialism, is fundamentally true – all art has its roots in developing human social relations – but it is also a condensation of a very complex interaction. This is because the social relations that art reflects are antagonistic relations of exploitation, oppression and resistance. So we should also remember Brecht's words that ‘Art is not a mirror to reflect reality, but a hammer with which to shape it’.

 

Kieran Allen: Review: Thomas Piketty, Capital in the Twenty First Century

How often have you heard the term ‘fantasy economics’ thrown at someone who challenges austerity? Sinn Fein apparently suffers from this ‘weakness’; so does Richard Boyd Barrett from People Before Profit and indeed everyone else who dares to oppose the endless cuts in public spending. There are some variations on the theme: ‘But do your figures add up?’ is probably the most common question any left-winger is asked on the Irish media. ‘Economically illiterate’ is the sniffy put down of those who suggest a tax on wealth.

 

Sean Mitchell: Rediscovering the Road Less Travelled: Lessons of Gerry Carroll’s Election Victory

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less travelled by, And that has made all the difference.
‘I am not a Nationalist or a Unionist; I Am a Socialist.’ This was the plain and unadorned phrase that newly elected Belfast city councillor Gerry Carroll used to announce his arrival on the political scene. Its innate message was clear: the long and protracted isolation of the radical Left in Belfast is now over.

 

Dave O’Farrell: Privatisation: theory and practice

Privatisation has been one of the most obvious and controversial aspects of the global trend to neoliberal economics over the past forty years. Across the globe, neoliberal governments and regimes have pursued privatisation policies ranging from the wholesale sell-off of nationalised industries and public services to more ‘subtle’ policies of marketisation or ‘outsourcing’, where state controlled entities and service provision are ‘opened to competition’.

 

Andy Durgan: The Spanish state: the Indignados enter the European parliament

Despite what much of the media want us to believe, it has not just been the extreme right that have benefitted from disillusionment with established politics. Apart from the notable victory of Syriza in Greece, the election of five MPs from the anti capitalist Podemos (‘We can’) in the Spanish state has rocked the political establishment.

 

Memet Uludag + John Molyneux: Racism and Islamophobia

10

jun 14

 

Memet Uludag, People Before Profit candidate for Castleknock in the recent local elections, found his posters were the object of sustained attack. First, there were pieces of bacon sellotaped to some of them, then many others were taken down or cut up and nally pictures of a pig’s head were attached to a number of them. The symbolism left no room for doubt—this was an ugly and vicious Islamophobic campaign.

Jimmy's Hall tells the story of Jimmy Gralton who returns home to Leitrim during the 1930’s and decides to re-open the local community hall which has been left derelict since the war of independence. The hall becomes a beacon for everything not obtainable and not allowed in the dark years of 1930’s Ireland.

 

Conor Kennelly: Book Review: Martin Empson, Land and Labour: Marxism, Ecology and Human History

jun 14

 

Martin Empson’s Land and Labour provides a Marxist analysis of the dynamic relationship between humanity and nature. As we are approaching a ‘tipping point’ beyond which Global Warming is unstoppable, it is critical that this relationship is understood.
