Latest Carnival of Socialism

Check it out at Leftwing Criminologist .

Its a themed one :

Hi all, Welcome to Carnival of Socialsim 20 - focussing on crime, criminal justice and socialism.
Crime is a relatively under discussed subject on the left - Indeed it's even seen as a weakness, but that shouldn't be so - given the high levels of crime in many places around the world (especially advanced capitalist countries) and the expensive measures used in the attempt to combat this (ie. prison) - this really shouldn't be the case. In this Carnival, we'll look at various aspects of crime from how socialists should approach crime, to criticising capitalist methods of tackling crime to crime in the third world.
