ID Journal Newsletter no. 32

This is issue includes two articles dealing with the myths of the international reformist Left. The first article deals with the myth promoted by the reformist Left in general and the World Social Forum and its European branch in particular, that is, neoliberalism is just a matter of policy rather than a systemic change which is irreversible within the system. This myth was repeated in the latest conference of the European Social Forum in Athens, and Takis Fotopoulos shows why the Social Forum ideology is disorienting peoples on the real nature of neoliberal globalisation and the tasks of today’s Left. The second article criticises another myth of the reformist Left concerning the supposed New Winds from the Left in Latin America. It shows that, in fact, we mainly face a changeover from neoliberalism to social-liberalism-- apart from Venezuela and Bolivia where a doomed attempt is being made for a return to a mixed type of economy within an integrated Latin America market.

The Editors
