Translated abridgment of »Die Krise des Finanzmarkt-Kapitalismus – Herausforderung für die Linke«, »Kontrovers« 01/2009
The brave new world of neoliberalism lies in ruins. Its wealth turned out to be robbery, sham and deceit.
The Left is in a new situation. Without its self-transformation and the development of a capacity to act that is adequate to the times, it will squander for a long time any possibility of becoming a force of social, ecological, democratic and peace-promoting social transformation beyond capitalism.
This paper, presented here in a shortened form, aims to contribute to the discussion about the strategies of a Left that is renewing itself in the crisis of neoliberalism.
