PATRICE GREANVILLE—Defenders of capitalism like to think that its “congruency with human nature” explains its “longevity” —three centuries and counting—a coy way of saying it has not been overthrown yet or disintegrated from its own numerous flaws, crimes, and contradictions. For if this premise were true how do we explain the astonishing longevity of previous systems, some lasting thousands of years? Wouldn’t that fact attest to their congruency with human nature? Ot are we to believe that those multitudes of generations before ours were less than human? And if the explanation to that is that “human nature” evolved, changed, etc., what made it change except its enveloping culture, as E,K Hunt and others have pointed out?

RICHARD HARDIGAN—For the last seven weeks, many Palestinians in Gaza have been involved in the Great March of Return, which is modeled on the 2011 Nakba Day demonstrations, when Palestinian refugees from Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt and the Palestinian territories approached the border with Israel, demanding their right to return to the lands from which they were evicted. Beginning March 30, Gazans have been marching to the fence that Israel has created in order to keep them out. More than two thirds of Gaza’s two million residents are descendants of refugees created during the Nakba, and their right to return to their homeland is enshrined in several United Nations Resolutions.

HIROYUKI HAMADA—Meanwhile, going along with imperial policies is getting more and more debatable: the imperial hegemony seems to be imploding as it desperately attempts to grow, while China enjoys its spectacular economic success in pursuing a Marxist trajectory in its own way.
