How can I stay above the fray?

How do I navigate racial politics with my family before our transracial adoption?

When I was childless, my parents' right-wing politics were pretty easy to ignore. Whatever, we're different, they are entitled to their opinions. But now that I have a small child, and we are about to adopt transracially, things are beginning to get tense for me. [more inside]

Help me find this "skeptic Marxist"

Help me find the name of this "Marxist Sceptic" thinker. I remember reading on aldaily.com within the last few months about a Marxist thinker who essentially came to the conclusion that though desirable, no socialist system of government would exist in the immediate future. I'm not sure if it was an obituary or something else.

Why can't left be right?

Why is environmentalism an issue of the left and not of the right? Why are those who disbelieve climate change on the right and not the left?

International Relations 101

I read the news (BBC) daily and pick up The Economist once in awhile (it's expensive!). I'm curious and want to know what is going on in the world, but most of the time I can't put anything into perspective and understand what this means for the rest of the world or the possible impact on my life. For example, I'm not really sure why Bush started a war in Afghanistan, or the repercussions of the Gaza flotilla attack. I like how The Economist will analyze issues and say "X happened. This is bad because Y might happen now." or "A is mad because B did this in the past." in short, up front sentences. When I try to look people/events up on Wikipedia or Google, it's overwhelming because there is TOO much information to read, and I'm constantly having to look up more and more and this easily turns into hours of reading and 60 tabs open on my browser. How can I get a general grasp of international relations? [more inside]

How to vote in the Belgian election?

I have to vote in the upcoming Belgian election. I was born in raised in the USA, but have been to Belgium many times, and speak Dutch fairly proficiently. I can't, however, really get a handle on the platforms of the various political parties - help me figure out what they stand for, or where I can find official statements in English. I'm leaning toward Groen or SPA at the moment, so information regarding them would be particularly appreciated.

Tell me how to build my political skills!

I'm involved in some pretty intense student organisations that revolve entirely around politics – not politics in the sense of political ideologies and left v right, but practical political behaviour. Success (i.e. ascending to the top) is based around who you know, who you can sweet-talk, manipulate or backstab rather than what you've done. At the same time, the UK general election has meant a lot has been said about the 'dark arts' of ladderclimbing, careful negotiation, positioning and politics within an organisation. The combination of the two has made me wonder - are political skills things you only pick up with experience or by being born with them? Are there any books, papers or other materials that I should look at if I want to learn how to become a canny political operator?

Save your European money, boys....

I've read a few articles that mention the collapse of the Euro. Any idea what that would look like? Could a country like France or Germany simply walk away? Could the currency survive that? What would they do until they had fresh DM or francs or whatever?
