Jeffrey Tucker on the Problems of the Alt-Right

Watch Derrick Broze’s interview with Jeffrey Tucker here. I disagree with Tucker’s treatment of Richard Spencer at the Students for Liberty conference. It should be possible for libertarians, anarchists, left-libertarians and Alt-Rightists to engage in civilized debate and discussion. Tucker also exaggerates the Trumpian threat with the Nazi […]

Bizarro World is Here

From Andy Nowicki: Gender traditionalists are wildly cheering a woman standing up to male chauvinists. Feminists are harrumphing over this gesture and defending social customs that require women to be submissive to men… In other news, conservatives are angry with the CIA and view the American deep state […]

Against the “Anti-Fascist” Creeps

A Review of Alexander Reid-Ross’ “Against the Fascist Creep” by Keith Preston Academic Gloss for the Antifa For decades, a minor cottage industry of professional “anti-racists” and “anti-fascists” has existed for the purpose of perpetually sounding the alarm about the imminent threat posed by supposed “far right extremists.” […]

Vulgar Anti-Vulgar Libertarianism

Kevin Carson defines vulgar-libertarianism as follows: Vulgar libertarian apologists for capitalism use the term “free market” in an equivocal sense: they seem to have trouble remembering, from one moment to the next, whether they’re defending actually existing capitalism or free market principles. So we get [a] standard boilerplate […]

The Free Speech Wars Have Begun

“From Gamergate, to Ben Affleck’s ‘Gross and Racist’ tirade, to trigger warnings and safe spaces, to Hillary’s ‘deplorables’ comment, to punching Nazis, and now to the mayhem after Milo Yiannopoulos tried to speak at UC Berkeley, the battle over free speech is now front and center in the […]

The Maoist Infiltration into Anarchism

By Aragorn One of the reasons that anarchism has become a popular political perspective is because in many contexts (for instance mass mobilizations or broad direct action campaigns) we seem open, friendly, and nonsectarian.

The Heat Comes Down on the Antifa?

Apparently, the heat has started coming down on antifa. “We want to reiterate: Philadelphia Police tried to stop this event.
