Introductory Draft of (((The Conspiracy))): A Political Economy of Antisemitism, Crisis and the Socialism of Fools

Let it first be said that there is nothing shocking or confusing about the present state of the world generally or the violent resurgence of antisemitism specifically. The repeated attacks on the Jewish people in France, Poland, Germany, the United States and elsewhere mirror the period of discriminatory laws and pogroms that swept through Europe in the years leading up to the death camps. Neo-Nazism, like the original Nazism, is not senseless but is a highly organized bureaucratic machine that seeks to both replace the existing liberal democratic political order and prevent the wretched of the earth from revolting against it.

The History of a Riot: Class, Popular Protest and Violence in Early Colonial Nelson

Petitions, public meetings, strikes, go-slows, violence and armed revolt. Nelson, New Zealand in 1843 was said to be 'in a state little short of anarchy'. In this paper, Jared Davidson argues that the self-activity of the Nelson labourers and their wives had a significant impact on the development of Nelson, drawing on traditions of popular protest, class power and the gendered labour of making shift. The agricultural backgrounds of many of the emigrants and the conflicts of the English countryside – including but not limited to the Swing Riots of 1830/31 – played a role in structuring the gang-men’s response to their situation.
