Sparkling Mao title

Hans Petter Sjølie's story about AKP's growth and fall is a bit tabloid, but do they deserve anything but a feature article of 229 pages plus 431 footnotes?

AKP (ml) is thus the party that in relation to other Maoist movements outside the walls of China – and Albania – became startlingly large in Norway in the 1970s. This is extremely strange in a country where social democracy was almost dominant and the student uprising in May 1968 was just a storm in a pjolterglass on Blindern.

The Norwegian Maoists, the AKP, mainly started their business in the district Bryn-Hellerud in Oslo in the late 1960s. There, a bunch of theoretically and politically interested young people arranged study circles and read The Capital by Karl Marx so that his eyes became both wet and red. But it was important to keep the tongue straight in the mouth, it was important – as in all movements that consider themselves revolutionary – to understand the theory correctly. Sjølie writes:

"The whole ml movement was a product of the controversy between Mao Tsetung and the post-Stalinist regime in Moscow."

The end of the visa was that we have hardly seen a political party in this country that became more religious than the AKP (ml) – the party that started as SUF, SF's youth party, and relatively quickly became an object of hatred for both Finn Gustavsen and Berge Furre. It was not until Christmas 1972 that this youth and protest movement was transformed from a rapture to the AKP (ml).

In the midst of the Cold War, the AKP was "ingenious" enough to distance itself from both the United States and the United States. . .

Challenging climate sobriety

ECOLOGY: We need such voices as Holly Jean Buck, who criticizes wishful thinking – precisely to help bring forward a hopeful, serious and long-lasting climate fight, beyond all easy optimism.

The comprehensive self-insulation

COVID19: SARS in 2003, bird flu in 2005, MERS in 2012, Ebola in 2014, combined with the financial crisis, massive refugee flows, and revolutions in the Middle East and Greta Thunberg's shrill doomsday voice, had largely immunized the population against something as abstract as Covid19.

We call it precariat

WORK: Precarious working life is perhaps alluring with its freedom and flexibility. But with the precarious also comes the uncontrollable, the unpredictability and the lack of rights. Precarious work has become widespread in a subject such as journalism. Nevertheless, I am still tempted by the flexible tasks, by the sense of variability, freedom almost.

An ever-creeping feeling of loneliness

INSULATION: Acute loneliness affects both winners and losers. Daniel Schreiber visits a wealth of hermit literature – such as Thoreau's Walden and Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. But what does social withdrawal mean today – whether it is the occupational or pandemic condition?

Can the technology revolution bring us out of disability?

ESSAY: Today, the extreme state is different than in the post-war period, when Sartre and Heidegger wrote about anxiety and authenticity. The existential threat today lies primarily in an uncertain planetary future.

An incantation against neo-fascism

CAPITALISM: Is not the struggle now about the right not to be exploited, but the right to be allowed to participate? There is much that is valuable in Mikkel Bolt Rasmussen's short book about the possible return of fascism in today's world – but it is weak in terms of empirical documentation.

The aesthetic manifestations of fascism

FASCISM: This does not necessarily manifest itself through mass spectacles and revolutionary fractures, and it is not a primarily European phenomenon. But like a product of political crises in the modern capitalist states.

Late fascism is here

CAPITALISM: The West's 'thin' fascism, which Bolt analyzes, is there especially because there is currently nothing else. Which does not rule out that it will one day grow as "thick" as Russian and Chinese fascism.

Ecology is playfully serious

ECOLOGY: Penguins' newly launched green series presents old and new books that change the way we think and talk about the living earth. You are in the age of mass extinction, but the philosopher Martin Heidegger brings us here on the trail of what we need.

The Israeli mentality and the militaristic undertones of society

ISRAEL: Two Swedish authors portray the people of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a large reportage book.

The world's best Catholics?

CANADA: With the discovery of children's graves in Canada, the Canadians are arguably making the Irish rank as "the world's best Catholics". Children from First Nations were outright stolen, imprisoned in isolation, forced into a foreign culture, a foreign language, subjected to sexual abuse and general neglect.

The battle is between carbo-fascism and eco-socialism

CARBON FASCISM: Climate change facilitates economic speculation and political positioning. Against corruption, we must prepare not only for a state of emergency, but for a climate war against declared enemies, writes Marc Alizart.
