Durante las últimas cuatro décadas, buena parte del desarrollo económico en América Latina ha girado en torno a la industria extractiva bajo un marco regulatorio neoliberal. Este modelo ha provocado protestas e incluso, en algunos casos, procesos constituyentes emergentes. En este contexto, reflexionamos por qué el marco neoliberal para el ordenamiento territorial sigue ocasionando resistencia a pesar de sus cambios y promesas. El neoliberalismo originalmente surgió a mediados del siglo anterior como una manera menos conflictiva, más tecnocrática, de tomar decisiones fundamentales en la economía y la política ambiental. En este artículo nos enfocamos en dos casos emblemáticos de oposición en Perú y Chile donde las poblaciones locales lograron imponer su mirada ante la del Estado.

This study of neo-conservatism in Israel argues that despite its powerful emergence, internal contradictions prevent it from establishing a hegemonic position. This argument is used to explain the collapse of the Likud in the 2006 elections after it adopted a neo-conservative agenda. The attempt to maintain simultaneously a hawkish foreign policy and a neo-liberal economic agenda proved costly, since the demands of such a foreign policy often contradict the 'small state' tenets of neo-liberalism. Consequently, as this article demonstrates, neo-conservatism has a difficult time sustaining a stable constituency, as those who support an aggressive foreign policy may desire a more welfare-type state, while those who support neo-liberalism generally favor a moderate foreign policy.

New Forms of Political Action in Israeli Channeling

Adam Klin-Oron

In this article I examine eschatological beliefs and practices among channels in Israel and abroad, and show that they demonstrate an avoidance of traditional, group-oriented political action, and an embrace of alternative, spiritual action performed individually. This is linked to Israel's shift to a neo-liberal economy and culture in the last few decades, where self-accountability has become the norm. Channeling teaches an extreme version of self-divinity, claiming that a person creates all aspects of his or her life and objecting to outside authority and regulation. It believes in a coming of a New Age of light and that the means to achieve it are personal quests for individual empowerment, which are anticipated to affect the whole world via the “virtual aggregate group,” an energetic reservoir that replaces the traditional group. Channels are engaged in alternative political action, attempting to change the world by virtually pooling spiritual resources.
