Thus, while some activists devoted themselves to the pursuit of goals like Medicare for All and the PRO Act (which would effectively undo the anti-union Taft-Hartley Act of 1947), progressivism never gained force as a national project the way the New Deal did. As the Democrats became identified with the economy’s advanced sectors and most prosperous regions, progressivism reinforced the trend, rather than countering it. The language of social justice consequently departed from the efforts of 20th-century liberals and social democrats. An earlier generation of progressives had sought to reconcile their egalitarian ends with a commitment to pluralism while also emphasizing common bonds. Meanwhile, outré concepts like “degrowth,” “family abolition,” and “harm reduction”—that last an increasingly pseudo-ethical justification for laissez-faire public safety—gained broader currency in progressive circles. Armed with their own rarefied lexicon and boutique epistemology, militant progressives set out to delegitimize other perspectives on social norms.

Untold numbers of military aircraft now patrol the Taiwan Strait that separates the island from China — not just from China and Taiwan, but from the militaries of the U.S., Japan, Australia and other countries. Tense encounters, with accusations of “trespassing,” have become a more common occurrence. If Lai wins, China’s government warned Thursday that he “would continue to follow the evil path of provoking ‘independence,'” taking Taiwan “ever further away from peace and prosperity, and ever closer to war and decline.” Supporters of all parties in Taiwan, Cole said, “have this thing in common called freedom and democracy.” Taiwan’s presidential race pits current Vice President Ching-te Lai, 64, a Harvard-educated physician-turned-politician who also goes by William, against challenger Hou Yu-Ih, a former police officer of the conservative Kuomintang party.

LONDON (AP) — More than 50 countries that are home to half the planet’s population are due to hold national elections in 2024, but the number of citizens exercising the right to vote is not unalloyed good news. The year looks set to test even the most robust democracies and to strengthen the hands of leaders with authoritarian leanings. But where U.S. policy on Taiwan heads after the U.S. presidential election in November remains a question mark. Some members of former President Donald Trump’s administration, including his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have voiced support for non-traditional positions, like offering Taiwan formal diplomatic recognition, which could trigger a crisis. Panelists also stressed the need for campaigns to look at potential swing voters, or the nearly half of adults who are independents, heading into 2024.
We fought it the good old way – by depending on our workers,” says BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla who worked for the party in Rajasthan. He told News18 that the BJP began its preparations in 2019 when crimes against women started being reported with unfailing regularity in Rajasthan.

If Donald Trump — currently the Republican front-runner — again loses to President Joe Biden, the real estate mogul will likely once more allege massive fraud and “incite widespread intimidation campaigns” against election officials and workers, the report said. “With the outcome of the vote essentially a coin toss (at least for now), the only certainty is continued damage to America’s social fabric, political institutions and international standing.” The decisive push came from PM Narendra Modi who took the campaign to the next level and articulated the issues of paper leaks and crimes against women, which amplified the message and ensured its penetration across the state. The PM’s confidence showed when he said that Gehlot would never be the Chief Minister of Rajasthan again.
How Taiwanese identity has evolved on the island in recent generations
The result was a comfortable majority of 115 seats for the BJP, reflecting the ground sentiment. The BJP’s ally remained its worker on the ground who kept giving inputs to the state and the central teams, which in turn kept pushing the same to the media. The party stationed its proficient voices like Rajya Sabha MP Sudhanshu Trivedi, former Uttar Pradesh minister Shrikant Sharma, and Shehzad Poonawalla in Rajasthan to escalate its message. The Congress, too, sent in its top spokespersons to Rajasthan, but it wasn’t as effective as the BJP.

They were overwhelmingly coastal, dominated by the college-educated, and, with the exception of those who devoted themselves to the labor movement and community organizing in poor neighborhoods, remote from the working-class constituencies they purported to represent. Thus, while progressives may have underestimated how hard it is to rein in the vested interests of blue regions, their intraparty battles have done little to reduce blue-state inequality or expand the liberal-left coalition in the manner that Sanders had sought to do. In blue cities and ailing post-industrial regions alike, progressives’ vision of change hasn’t successfully revived working-class power—certainly not in a manner that would shake up the regional basis of the two-party system.
The Left’s Foolish Attack on Bidenomics
Yet if recent polls are a guide, Biden is dangerously unpopular for a president who has advanced a much-sought-after break from neoliberalism. Many voters indicate that they are dissatisfied with the economy and convinced that Donald Trump would handle it better. As the 2024 campaign ramps up, stalwart Democrats are starting to panic over President Biden’s re-election prospects. The Kuomintang favors dialogue and closer but unspecified ties with China in order to avoid a war, but none of the parties support a reunification that would see Taiwan swap its democracy for Beijing’s one-party communist rule.
