Hard Crackers has reached out to a South African independent social justice publication called New Frame. New Frame describes itself as such: We are dedicated to a pro-poor, pro-working class focus that aims to report faithfully and informatively about the lives and struggles of working class people, the marginalized and unemployed, shack-dwellers and migrants.
We have agreed with the New Frame folks to share articles now and then that might help our respective readerships understand circumstances in South Africa and the U.S. more clearly.
We would like to share with our readers this recent article from New Frame by one of their writers, Christopher McMichael, that talks about the conspiracy theory phenomenon. It illuminates how some ways of thinking are global in character. In the spirit of international solidarity, we believe that the comradely relationship we share with New Frame can be of benefit to us all.
