  • Resisting Illegitimate Authority in the Era of Trump
    In the current era of Trump, much of American society finds itself frustrated, angry, and traumatized by an authoritarian president whose leadership is being perceived increasingly as illegitimate. Oddly, a large reason for Trump’s success in getting elected in the first place as well as his continued seemingly inconceivable support is largely due to the illusion that he is anti-authoritarian and will shake things up and create change. Trump, of course, is no anti-authoritarian. Rather, he is an authoritarian who resists power only when he doesn’t have it. Anti-authoritarians challenge and resist all forms of illegitimate authority. Bruce E. Levine, in his ... ...

  • ‘Billions in our community’ — Israel supporters make frank appeals to Jewish wealth and influence
    In the last year, Israel’s supporters in the U.S. have made frank appeals to Jewish wealth and power as weapons to fight Israel’s delegitimization from the left. The Israel lobby used to be more veiled when flexing its monetary muscles. But these calls have gotten pretty explicit, as Josh Block’s program for Jews to use the “billions… at rest in our community” to buy up media properties and turn those publications into tribunes for Israel shows. Here’s a list of four statements by Israel supporters citing Jewish influence. A leading funder of neoconservative causes, Roger Hertog spoke of Jewish wealth ... ...
