What’s the difference between a redneck and a yoga-scenester?
Nothing. They are both degenerate subcultures. The yoga-scenesters think they are better than the rednecks, prancing themselves above those bigots and racists. Meanwhile, these people are just rednecks doing yoga. More…

NATA-NY’s experience at the seventh annual NYC Anarchist Book Fair
By Gabriel Brown
NATA-NY member and co-founder
On April 6, 2013, the seventh annual NYC Anarchist Book Fair
, which was held at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center in New York City, provided the setting for a violent attack on the peaceful members of the National Anarchist Tribal Alliance of New York (NATA-NY).
NATA-NY originally planned to attend the book fair to check out books and the different workshops. We always hope to further develop our philosophies and understandings by speaking to anarchists of all hyphenations. NATA-NY always seeks to learn from others in the anarchist community as well as share our own experiences, attempting to find unity among people on all sides of the “left/right”spectrum. More…

The journey into the Twilight Zone continues.
A student’s bid to become associate vice president of diversity and inclusion at Northwestern University was derailed last Wednesday over accusations that his status as a white heterosexual male would make it impossible for him to perform the position’s duties.
Stephen Piotrkowski was apparently denied a position on Northwestern’s student government because he is a “heterosexual white male.”
This is a timeline of the events concerning the prosecution and trial of Emma West, who was recorded on video while on a London tram. Her case has previously been the subject of comment here, in particular by Robert Henderson.

Living through a collapse is a curious experience. Perhaps the most curious part is that nobody wants to admit it’s a collapse. The results of half a century of debt-fuelled “growth” are becoming impossible to convincingly deny, but even as economies and certainties crumble, our appointed leaders bravely hold the line. No one wants to be the first to say the dam is cracked beyond repair.
“The drug war is not just another issue among a multitude of equally important issues; it is a horrible invasion of liberties with catastrophic effects on people all over the world. Any politician who supports it is thereby declaring himself at war against decency, peace, and security.”— Robert Higgs

The Beeb woke me at the crack of dawn to deal with these fatuous and endlessly-recycled lies about the tendency of porn to turn good men into sex-crazed zombies. Don’t be surprised if I sound as bored here as I felt. The most interesting thing for me about the interview was staring up at the contours of my bedroom ceiling.
Rand Paul epitomizes why we need revolutionary anarchism, not “constitutional conservatism.”
In preparation for a 2016 presidential run, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is courting evangelical leaders. And we all know what that means! It’s time to throw those hedonistic, libertine, drug-obsessed libertarians under the bus. The Washington Post reports on how that’s going:
At a lunch Friday with about a dozen evangelical pastors in a Cedar Rapids hotel, the younger Paul assured the group that he disagrees with libertarians who support legalizing drugs. When one pastor inquired about ideological ties between Paul and his father, the senator asked that he be judged as his own man.
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron on Monday pledged to pursue a broad trade agreement between the U.S. and European Union, amid growing domestic unrest with the Obama administration’s plans to include new political powers for corporations in the deal.
Negotiations have not formally begun, but a series of meetings between U.S. and EU officials have established some ground rules and the preliminary scope of the talks. Since tariffs are already low or nonexistent, the agreement will focus on regulatory issues. That emphasis has concerned food safety advocates, environmental activists and public health experts, who fear a deal may roll back important standards.
Keith Preston offers a critical evaluation of the movement that shaped the cultural life of contemporary Western societies. Topics include:
The intellectual and political origins of the New Left as a “fourth way” movement beyond capitalism, fascism, and communism.
The convergence of social forces during the 1960s that made the growth of the New Left possible.
The success of the New Left at carrying out a comprehensive cultural revolution in Western civilization.
The failure of the New Left at opposing American imperialism, challenging the hegemony of plutocratic capitalism, and preventing the subsequent growth of police state repression.
Keith Preston interviews returning guest Ryan Faulk.
Ryan’s latest project, the All Nations Party, a proposed political meta-party devoted to pan-secessionism.
How such a party might be composed of sub-parties devoted to specific regional, ideological, or identitarian interests and how these might break down into constituent sub-interests of their own.
How cultural conflict prevents the growth of effective opposition to the political class.
“For me, a libertarian is someone who: want to be left alone; who wants to leave others alone; and who wants others to be left alone. There are many paths by which you come to this position, and many justifications for it, and there are many claimed derogations from it.”
In the first of a series of interviews with leading libertarians, Dr Sean Gabb, Director of the Libertarian Alliance, discusses what libertarianism means to him. Dr Gabb is also author of around fifteen books (some novels, some poetry, others political) and has contributed to Lewrockwell.com and Vdare. The topics discussed in this interview include English reactionism and the ancient philosopher, Epicurus.
