Control Your Local Police

By Dave Hummels While reflecting on recent episodes of police misconduct in my community and beyond, I began to think about how much law enforcement agencies resemble the Catholic Church. And no, this is not a pre-St. Patrick’s day Irish joke. Consider the following: The Church and police departments […]

Hurray for Washington!

By Mary Theroux “Bread and circuses” anyone? The culmination of last night’s Oscars broadcast with a Live! feed from the White House with Mrs. Obama (hangin’ with her military BFs) marks the official recognition of the Presidency as theater: like the old Western sets, no substance required.

The New American Matriarchy

Anthony Gregory Gets It

Good post from Anthony on a FB forum. “I think bourgeois Americans are not as conservative as Hoppe assumes that are in some of his writings. Even with today’s dominant social values, most Americans would not want to live by rules as strict and culturally rightwing as he […]

The Slave Morality Of Social Justice – Part One

By Legionscatz To provide a quick background to the slave morality/master morality dichotomy. Firstly, this concept was described by Friedrich Nietzsche to explain a dichotomy between deontological ethics and consequentialism in relation to how Nietzsche viewed aspects of human behavior.

Leftists and War

By Khadijah Umayyad I myself am an ardent reader of antiwar.com and have spent untold hours listening to the Scott Horton show.

Child Liberation Movement

By Khadijah Umayyed I believe that children can divorce themselves from their parents. The argument of “unable to make decisions” is true of half of the witless retards on this planet. I don’t believe in ‘rights’, but I do believe in the presumption of liberty in any coherent […]

The Republican Party Can’t Die Soon Enough

Voices Newspaper Some shocking figures:  On average, each Wisconsin’s 5,700,000 residents gives $268 dollars to subsidize business — corporate welfare.  Ten cents of every dollar in the state budget subsidizes business — 10 percent of Wisconsin’s budget is corporate welfare.

Am I a Right-O?

By Khadija Umayyad If you’ve been reading this blog [i], you’ve probably noticed that I am fairly critical of the left, especially the liberal and ‘rights’ oriented left. You might wonder if I’m some kind of right-winger. Well, some people might say so, but I don’t think so. […]

Pluralist Anti-Statism

Conscience of a Misanthrope Everything on this blog is worth reading. Four years ago, I called for a revolution in the anarchist milieu whereby the hegemony of political correctness would be purged or at least overrun and eclipsed. Since then, remarkable progress has been made towards that goal. […]

The Guilt Cult Of Privilege Checking

MereAnti-Statism You’re not to think you are anything special. You’re not to think you are as good as us. You’re not to think you are smarter than us. You’re not to convince yourself that you are better than us. You’re not to think you know more than us. You’re not to think you are more important than us. You’re not to think you are good […]
