Adam Kokesh’s plan to seek the Libertarian Party nomination in 2020 on a program of abolishing the federal government would seem to be a move in the correct direction. However, this idea may be incomplete in various ways. This leads to the need for a consideration of what […]
Adam Kokesh is seeking the LP nomination for 2020 on a program of literally abolishing the US federal government. Here is his platform: The platform is simple. When elected, I will swear in, walk to the White House, and sign one executive order. This executive order will lay […]
This is an interesting discussion by Tom Woods exploring the similarities and differences between Marxist and Austrian class theory. The basis of the discussion is an article by Hans Hermann Hoppe suggesting that Marx was essentially correct about everything but the labor theory of value. This analysis of […]
I rarely write about or discuss religion, but this is an interview I did with a Catholic podcaster named Max Kolbe about the organized atheist movement and its limitations. Other than theism, there weren’t many things we disagreed on.
My take on Trump is unique because I find myself saying to my liberal friends, “No, he’s not a Nazi. Get over your paranoia.” And I find myself saying to my right-wing friends, “No, he’s not the savior of America/white people/whatever, just a two-bit carnival huckster. Get your […]
Apparently, there has been a predictable left/right split in the libertarian milieu over the NFL players’ protests. Ron Paul says nay, but Reason magazine says yay! Read all about it here. I disagree with Ron Paul that the NFL is merely a private association. The idea that NFL […]

The money quote, and the main reason why most US political factions are worthless: “Unfortunately, most Americans do not bat an eye at the worst offenses committed by the presidency, namely the killing of millions in undeclared wars of choice with nations who have never attacked the United […]

One of our natural allies. By Lucy Steigerwald Spiked he right’s young straw men and women – those whining, rioting college students – do exist. But current self-proclaimed champions of free speech and expression are just as much of an embarrassment. Just look at Milo Yiannopoulos, and his […]
Liechtenstein comes pretty close to being an anarcho-monarchist system. By Andreas Kohl Martinez Jacobite A version of this speech was given at the Corax Conference, July 28-30, in Silema, Malta. Before we jump in, let’s have a show of hands. How many of you have ever been told […]

Part of the problem is that the Kurds are caught between a rock and a hard place. The Western axis within global capitalism is trying to coopt the Kurds as a tool to be used against the Eastern axis, and the Eastern axis realizes this and is trying […]
By Tim Black Spiked Online And so, once again, it looks as if regional and international powers are set on betraying the Kurds. It’s a familiar narrative. Think back to the Treaty of Sevres in 1920, for example. Then, in the aftermath of the First World War, the […]
By William S. Lind Traditional Right All ideologies take certain words that have commonly understood definitions and give them new code word definitions with different meanings for those in the know. When the ideologues speak, ordinary people get one message while followers of the ideology get another. In […]
By William S. Lind Traditional Right On both sides of the political spectrum the words “Nazi” and “Fascist” have come in common use. I have bad news for both the nuts carrying swastika flags and the thugs known as the “Antifa” (for the “Anti-fascists”): Nazism and Fascism are […]
Here’s the money quote: “Unlike the tea party candidates of 2010 and 2012, these candidates and potential candidates are not united by any coherent ideological vision.

The roles that a civil engineer can play in our society are many and varied. At the core of what civil engineers do is a desire to improve the spaces in which we live, work, and relax in order to bring about general improvements in the quality of […]
An interesting interview and debate.
This is a peer reviewed article published last year by the British Medical Journal on the subject of police brutality in the United States and how frequently it occurs. The researchers summarized their findings as follows. “US police killed or injured an estimated 55 400 people in 2012 (95% […]
An antifa lunatic debates a neocon mouthpiece. Watch the train wreck unfold.
Modern liberal democratic states are oligarchies of state-capitalist power elites in practice (C. Wright Mills). But they have to afford a reasonable standard of living, level of protection, and quality of life to the middle class in order to maintain their legitimacy. States tend to collapse when they […]

“I found myself turning into an idiot!”: David Graeber explains the life-sapping reality of bureaucratic life
By Elias Isquith Salon.Com David Graeber, a professor of anthropology at the London School of Economics, is a man who wears many hats. He’s an academic, of course — and a respected one at that. But he’s also an author, an activist and political anarchist. But his most […]
This is an interesting interview with a Native American US Army veteran and former Antifa turned National Socialist. Listen here. The politics aren’t really my cup of tea, but there’s a lot of interesting information and ideas discussed in this.
Trump supporters just doxxed thousands of anti-racist protesters as part of a disturbing harassment campaign
More of the usual nonsense. The bottom line is that nothing productive will ever be achieved until dissidents and radicals are able to move past the usual left/right, red/blue, Nazi/Antifa, white privilege/Jewish conspiracy, free market/more government paradigms, and recognize that the fight is against a global system that […]
This is the transcript of an interview I recently did with a Swiss journal. 1-In your book “Attack the System” you describe the current ideology of the West as a “totalitarian humanism,” yet you claim to be to the left of Marx (I am referring to a statement […]

Press TV. Listen here. US President Donald Trump’s threats of military action against North Korea are “overblown” statement that would never come true, an American analyst says, arguing American military officials are well-aware how “devastating” such warfare would be. Keith Preston, director of attackthesystem.org, made the remarks while […]
Last night, the Senate overwhelmingly approved an $80 billion annual increase in military spending. Trump had asked for just $48 billion. That $80 billion increase in military spending is enough to have satisfied Bernie Sanders’s campaign promise to make tuition free at public colleges and universities. (You may […]

Given the recent exchange on anti-Semitism between anarcho-communist Wayne Price, national-anarchist Sean Jobst and myself, this article from Unz Review and the article from Telos posted adjacently offer two diametrically opposed perspectives on US-Israel relations, Zionism, Jewish power and anti-Semitism. By Philip Giraldi Unz Review I spoke recently […]
Clearly, we need a critique of the US-Israel relationship, Zionist imperialism, and related issues that stands apart from classical Christian and/or Nazi anti-Semitism on one hand, without simply dismissing these things a mere tools of the US ruling class. Instead, we need to develop a more nuanced analysis […]

The Stark Truth Robert Stark talks to Keith Preston of Attack the System for a written interview. Topics include:
It could be that Trump has started a trend where the political class, corporate class, and celebrity class are increasingly blended into each other. Also, a Zuckerberg presidential candidacy would be significant in that he represents social and economic forces outside the traditional WASP plutocracy to a much […]
Some interesting comments from Lorenzo Komboa Ervin posted below. I would agree with much of his analysis, except to say that Trump is not a fascist. He’s more like the Republicans we had back in the 70s like Nixon and Nelson Rockefeller (which is bad enough). It’s possible […]
William Schnack is an author, philosopher, and community organizer. On the show we discuss Pierre-Joseph Proudon’s mutual credit bank (mutualism), Henry George’s land value tax (Georgism), and how these two schools can be married under the libertarian philosophy of geo-mutualism.
It is politically inappropriate and strategically counter productive to merely denounce rank and file members of the military as hired goons for the state. One of the most important political occurrences that happened in US history was the success of the anti-Vietnam War movement, and the consequent delegitimization […]
