Colombians rejecting a peace deal with the FARC that was highly desired by both the majority of the Colombian capitalist class as well as international capital.
Now the rise of the idiot “Pirate Party” in Iceland.
And in the Philippines, there is a president who threatens not only to switch allegiance from US capitalist domination to Chinese capitalist domination; he also is comparing himself to Hitler and threatening to assassinate 2 million drug users and a call center worker I recently talked with said she thinks he’s “good” and in regard to the threat to kill the 2 million “he doesn’t really mean what he says.”
It seems that all around the world, not only is the global (capitalist) order breaking down, so are the arrangements within capitalist society that keep capitalism functioning on an even keel. It’s not that workers were benefiting from the previous order, but the breakdown threatens to be at least as much if not more harmful.
And this doesn’t even begin to take into account the rise of religious fundamentalist, sectarian strife, wars like that in Syria, etc.
