The Unmagnificent Seven: Naming ISIS Allies

How ISIS is being used as a tool of the Anglo-American-Zionist-Wahhabist axis. By Taxi Plato’s Guns The Mainstream Media is doing all it can to avoid addressing the obvious:  naming, dissecting and damning ISIS’s major backers and supporters.  There are no such informative and sanguine reports being penned […]

Is North Korea on the Brink of Reform?

If true, this is big news. By Michael Bassett Asia Observer Swiss-educated reformer Kim Jong-un is liberating North Korea by proliferating a capitalist, knowledge-based economy, says Michael Bassett.  When Kim Jong-il died, speculation ran awry that North Korea would either collapse or be taken over by hard-liners. Analysts watched doggedly […]

Let us do nothing!

By Keir Martland There’s a lot of talk of the recent debates over the Cameron regime’s proposed Syrian adventure being a good thing and that we are learning from the mistakes of Iraq and Libya. No we aren’t. The vast majority of voices we are hearing are in […]

Why Risk War With Russia?

Why the Majority-Minority Future Might Never Come

By Reihan Salam National Review Jamelle Bouie argues that the United States might never become a “majority-minority” country, as the white majority will expand over time through intermarriage and assimilation: It’s hard to overstate the significance of this. Whites are the mainstream of American life, with tremendous representation […]

The legacy of anarchist successes?

The Argument from Atrocity

A commenter at AnarchistNews.Org offered this response to my latest exchange with Anti-Fascist News: I read it. I read through other things on that site. Yikes. It’s really bizarre that a large portion of Preston’s criticism of “left” anarchists (anarchists) is that they have a kind of selective […]

The Karma of Terror

By William T. Hathaway Terrible terrorists are killing our soldiers in their countries and killing us here at home. How can we stop them? The answer is simple: Stop terrorizing them. We started this war. What we do to others comes back on us. In addition to centuries […]

Ignoring the Elephant in the Room

“Anti-Fascist News“replies to my reply (in typical anarchist fashion, as our rivals point out). I get the feeling that website is probably just one person, as all the posts have the same writing style and tone, and use the byline of “Anti-Fascist Front.” Probably some college kid writing […]

Halal & Hypocrisy XIII: Remove Kebab?

  New from the Inferno: A tyrannical tale of kebabs and killjoys. The south of France, and one man finds himself deeply disenchanted by the culinary delights on offer in his locale. So much so, in fact, that he took to the press, voicing his determination never to […]

France’s False Choice

Atlantic article from January. Thoughtful overview of Dar al-Islam in the land of the Gauls. Also, rather refreshing to see a mainstreamer who can tell the fucking difference between liberty and democracy! The impressive and inspiring show of solidarity at France’s unity march on January 11—which brought together […]

Keith Preston: Americans’ knowledge of Islam based on false information

Press TV. Listen here: http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2015/11/18/438188/Americans-knowledge-Islam The majority of American people have a very limited and “primitive” knowledge about Islam and have mostly received false information about the religion, a political analyst in Virginia says. “Most Americans know very, very little about Islam and the little they know is […]

More Anarchistic Than Thou

A reply to “Anti-Fascist News“: An uninformed lay person reading the pathetically ignorant and barely literate bromide against Attack the System recently issued by “Anti-Fascist News” would hardly know anarchism is a vast tradition in modern political philosophy with roots in the radical Enlightenment more than two centuries […]

Mass-Immigration: The Athenian Approach

Insurgent Islands: A Continuing Conversation on Anarchism with Principles, by Kevin Van Meter

Institute for Anarchist Studies “Freely Disassociating” appeared in June 2015.  Although it was written a year prior, the half dozen Left and radical publications to which it was initially submitted would not print it.  Since its publication by Perspectives on Anarchist Theory inquiries and positive responses (such as Scott Campbell’s, […]

Panarchy Flourishes Under Geo-Mutualism

By William Schnack Center for a Stateless Society Panarchy Flourishes Under Geo-Mutualism William Schnack’s Response to Carson’s Arbitrary Occupancy-and-Use Doctrine My position on occupancy and use is a little different than Kevin’s, and I dare suggest that it is the position nearest Proudhon’s original intentions. Though I do […]

That’s Dr. Nazi to You

I tell you, this Keith Preston guy is bad ass, whoever he is. Says professional “anti-fascist” Mike Issacson: “Another NPI speaker Keith Preston, also ends up largely in the same place as Faye and the others, but in his own fake anarchist way. For Preston, the end result […]

Getting Ahead

By William T. Hathaway This photo of my parents reveals much about their personalities (hers vivacious and outgoing, his withdrawn and closed off), their relationship (little real contact), and also the times (could be captioned Gender Roles in the 1950s: The Bathing Beauty and the Soldier).
