Democracy in America, Revisited

By Morris Berman Since American democracy is in the process of disintegrating, it might be worthwhile to reflect on the nature of the phenomenon, and the sources of its dialectical death.  In 1982 the eminent French scholar, Pierre Manent, published a study of Alexis de Tocqueville’s Democracy in […]

Why Anarchism+ Is A Conservative Movement

By Legionscatz As someone who has typically placed themselves on the left of the anarchist movement, a common trend I have noticed emerging among my so-called “comrades” is that much of the left’s philosophy is becoming indistinguishable from the socially conservative movements that most anarchists have traditionally opposed. […]

Feminism: The Goddess That Fails

By Becky Kevorkian Despite what they would like you to believe, feminists are not for “equality”, they are for the special interests of women specifically, while ignoring very real instances of inequalities against men. If feminists were truly a group oriented toward supporting equality for all, they would […]

Against “Thick” Anarchism

By Joseph Hunter Usually this is a derogatory term for those anarchists who are not deemed “thick” enough in their prescriptions for a stateless society. It is becoming more and more accepted among anarchists that this is a bad thing and that mere opposition to the state is […]

A Woman’s Work? Behind a Gun

(Previously posted at Mere Anti-Statism) Two days ago, the Stateside military lifted its ban on females assuming combat roles. According to The Guardian, Pentagon Defence Secretary (and civilian-assassination-endorsing piece-of-shit) Leon Panetta, together with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey, scribbled away the 1994 prohibition […]

The Ghastly Idea of ‘Equality for All’

By Kirkpatrick Sale Equality is a pernicious and dangerous political policy, but that’s exactly what Obama declared in full voice in his second inaugural speech as the cause and preoccupation of his government for the next four years. He explicitly promised equality for women, gays, illegal immigrants, the […]

Libertarian Anticapitalism

By Charles Johnson   For most of the 20th century, American libertarians were mostly seen as — and mostly saw themselves as — defenders of capitalism. Was that an accurate view of 20th century libertarians were about? If accurate, is that a good thing about libertarianism, or a […]

Silver and Gold

By Ludwig Von

Despite the Great Depression and numerous extended financial troubles in the century since passage of the Federal Reserve Act (I may detail these in a future article), supporters cite the “panics” and other crises of the late 19th century

NRA Shooting Self in Foot

American Spectator The National Rifle Association is hobbling its own public relations effort by remaining committed to its original Sandy Hook response, namely that an armed guard should be stationed in every school. This view was introduced by Wayne LaPierre at a tone-deaf, now-infamous press conference. That event was […]

Gun Control: Who Gets Control?

By Darian Worden Supporting gun control laws means giving government more credit than it deserves. Government is an institution run and staffed by people with their own interests and personalities. Are they really any smarter, more competent, or less likely to escalate violence than the average person? If […]

Is Rand Paul A ‘Christian Zionist’?

By Justin Raimondo As Israel’s ultra-nationalist parties continue to gain traction, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seeks to appease them by building “settlements” with US taxpayer dollars on Palestinian land, the hostility between Washington and Tel Aviv is coming out into the open. While tension has been building […]

Anarchist ~ Patriot ~ Militia Movement Alliance Flag Flag design by Gabriel Brown By Gabriel Brown The main symbol of this flag is the Tree with grass roots on a local level while the rest reflect historical revolutionary tradition which formulated the United States tradition for defending a […]

Liberalism Versus Blacks

By Thomas Sowell There is no question that liberals do an impressive job of expressing concern for blacks. But do the intentions expressed in their words match the actual consequences of their deeds? San Francisco is a classic example of a city unexcelled in its liberalism. But the […]
