Is this the moment for political resistance? There seems to be no shortage of calls to resist political administrations and ideological spectrums across the globe. What are the models we can draw from when we conceptualize resistance in the 21st century? “It doesn’t take a miracle to do away with intolerable conditions.” (Brecht) But what does it take instead? Brecht’s work is concerned with forms of resistance against intolerable conditions, most importantly against fascism, but also against forms of socialist state power.
