Visit the Verso website today to participate in a contest to win the Counterblasts series (consisting of The Imperial Messenger: Thomas Friedman at Work by Belén Fernández, The Impostor: BHL in Wonderland by Jade Lindgaard and Xavier de la Porte, and Michael Ignatieff: The Lesser Evil? by Derrick O’Keefe), plus Britain’s Empire: Resistance, Repression and Revolt by Richard Gott and Liberalism: A Counter-History by Domenico Losurdo.
The contest consists of three questions, the first one being:
Which of these is a genuine Friedmanism?
A. “Syria has come to a fork in the road to Damascus. Whichever road it takes, let’s hope it’s not the road not taken.”
B. “In China today, Bill Gates is Britney Spears. In America today, Britney Spears is Britney Spears-and that is our problem.”
C. “Looking for dignity in all the wrong places, Egypt takes step backward after shooting itself in both feet.”
One thought on “Verso competition: Win the Counterblasts series and more”
Pam Nogales and I, members of the Platypus Affiliated Society, recently interviewed the Italian Hegelian-Marxist philosopher and historian Domenico Losurdo, author of Liberalism: A Counter-History (2006, translated 2011). We talked about Marxism, the problematic legacy of liberalism, and the State. You might be interested in checking out the edited transcript of our conversation, which was recently published in The Platypus Review.
