The Great Regression

Under the stewardship of Heinrich Geiselberger, 15 left-wing intellectuals give a realistic view of the current polit- ical situation in Europe, and all over the world. The situation is alarming: the fall of communism in 1989 led to the victory of neo-liberalism, which led to a hyper-in- dividualisation of citizens and, in turn, an apparently irrepressible rise in populism, xenophobia and various types of religious and nationalist extremism. The thinking explored here argues that only left-wing radicalism can reverse this process of global regression. The rise of these dif- ferent types of populisms should push left-wing thinkers to reinvent it in order to rebalance the relationship between citizenship and state.
