Quali sono i valori di sinistra? Alcune riflessioni

Mi capita a volte di avere dibattiti sui valori di sinistra con persone di diversi colori politici. Spesso, però, mi sembra che ci sia confusione sul loro significato. Ho dunque deciso di spiegare brevemente quali siano, secondo me, i valori di sinistra, e di delineare alcune politiche economiche per metterli in pratica.


1) democrazia parlamentare, diritti umani, separazione dei poteri, Stato di diritto;

2) progresso economico e sociale a beneficio della maggioranza dei cittadini, e non solo di una minoranza;

3) difesa del lavoro e della dignità dei lavoratori;

4) Stato sociale;

5) economia di mercato mista;

6) commercio equo.


Quali politiche secondo me dovrebbe sostenere la sinistra?


1) difesa dei diritti e del potere contrattuale dei lavoratori;

2) salario minimo;

3) mantenimento e, dove necessario, miglioramento del reddito di cittadinanza;

4) creazione di un sistema di gare pubbliche per imprenditori, e selezione tramite voto popolare di aziende da sovvenzionare con denaro pubblico, obbligate a produrre nel territorio;

5) selezione di aziende incaricate della costruzione di opere pubbliche attraverso referendum;

6) creazione di parchi per la ricerca scientifica e loro integrazione con zone economiche speciali in cui imprenditori e ricercatori ricevono fondi statali e macchinari;

7) investimenti nelle opere infrastrutturali;

8) investimenti in materiali industriali innovativi, energie alternative e batterie;

9) investimenti in fattorie verticali per la produzione di coltivazioni agricole non presenti in Italia;

10) creazione di istituti professionali sul modello tedesco per la formazione di personale tecnico.

Questa è una lista temporanea, che potrebbe essere arricchita da nuove proposte. I principi generali, comunque, mi sembrano chiari.

Quali sono secondo voi i valori di sinistra, e quali politiche dovrebbero sostenere i partiti di sinistra?

Will The Huawei Case Finally Awaken Democrats To The China Threat And The Danger Of Faux Free Trade Rhetoric?

Huawei Shenzhen office building (by Raysonho  via Wikimedia Commons) On January 28 the Department of Justice of the United States unsealed two cases against Huawei , China's largest telecommunications company, and its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou.  Huawei has been accused of trying to steal trade secrets, committing bank fraud, breaking confidentiality agreements and violating sanctions against Iran. One indictment claims that Huawei attempted to steal trade secrets from T-Mobile by promising bonuses to employees who collected confidential information. Huawei is not a company like any other. Over the years it has benefited enormously from the support of the Chinese Communist regime. The founder of Huawei, Ren Zhengfei, joined China's army during the Cultural Revolution . In 1978 he also joined the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).  In the early years Huawei's sources of capital were high-interest loans (20%-30%) from Chinese state-owned enterp

Foreigners in China have been targeted by the government and anti-foreign sentiment has been enouraged. This year arrests and deportations of foreign teachers in China have increased amid a government campaign to promote "patriotic education." An inc

China releases anti-Uighur propaganda film "Black Hand"

Mosque in Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang, as photographed in 2008 (photo by jun jin luo via Wikimedia Commons) The People's Republic of China (PRC) has released a propaganda video titled "The black hand — ETIM and terrorism in Xinjiang", in an attempt to shape the narrative surrounding its crackdown on the Uighur Muslim ethnic minority. The propaganda film links the Uighur population to Islamic terrorism, thus trying to justify the indiscriminate persecution of the entire Muslim population. "For decades, the [East Turkistan Islamic Movement] which has close links with international terrorist organizations perpetrated countless terrorist attacks aiming to separate the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region from China," writes China's state-run television network CGTN. The East Turkistan Islamic Movement, or ETIM, was reportedly founded by Hasan Mahsum, an Uighur from Xinjiang's Kashgar region. He was shot dead by Pakistani troops in 2003. In 2002 the Unite
