Another article by Kotkin that is consistent with my own analysis of domestic US politics as well. Domestic US politics at present can be divided into four basic factions: The Dominant Faction. Centrist neoliberals representing the rising techno-oligarchy, Wall Street and Kotkin’s “new clerisy” embedded in the managerial […]
A classic from Paul Gottfried and one of the definitive works criticizing totalitarian humanism. Available at Amazon. The important point for anarchists and libertarians is that totalitarian humanists are not amoral, libertine, hedonists as their critics often claim. Instead, they are fanatical moral puritants (“secular theocrats”). They oppose […]
Telos Press published this a few years ago. Joel Kotkin’s approach to class analysis is pretty much the same as my own. Kotkin’s approach to domestic American class analysis makes for an important complement to the international class analysis offered by Hardt and Negri. In ways not seen […]
“Plutocratic Communism” is a great term. Communism was one of the biggest scams in history. “Wealth and property are bad! Let’s give it all to the state!” Not even the priestly conjurers of god-emperors or the divine right of kings came up with something that good. Communism was […]
I first heard of libertarians in 1980 when Ed Clark ran for Prez on the LP ticket. I first heard of anarchists around 1983 when I came across William Godwin in a high school English literature class (which I probably failed). I first became an anarchist by reading […]
A great episode. Glad to see this happening. Rothbardian anarcho-capitalists, who make up a substantial proportion of my audience, are often confused by non-libertarian anarchists, who don’t seem like real anarchists to them. These anarchists, in turn, feel the same way about anarcho-capitalists. In this episode, Professor Gerard […]

It makes sense that as anarchists movements grow on a worldwide basis anarchist tendencies in countries with a history of tyrannical leftist governments would assume a rightward orientation while anarchist movements in rightward leaning nations would assume a leftist orientation. By Denys Gorbach Open Democracy Anarchism may be […]
Apparently, anarchists have been trolling the Return of Kings website. Given the source, this piece has a predictable masculinist bias. —————————- Few weeks ago, I published an article calling for the political independence of America and I was pleased to see that many people were open to the […]

A former Antifa embraces what amounts to the ATS position.
Todd Lewis and I will wrap up our eight part series on US foreign policy covering the “End of History” and the War on Terror.
It’s always great to go back and revisit this classic essay by Murray Rothbard that I think offers some of the best analysis of modern ideological history yet devised. In this work, Rothbard is analyzing the origin and meaning of the terms Left and Right, arguing correctly that […]
I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to know what the true intellectual Right actually is. And I say that not just because there is a chapter discussing my own work where Dr. Gottried graciously compares me with Noam Chomsky, William Appleman Williams, C. Wright Mills, […]

The model that all anarchists and anti-statists need to be studying.

While many of these suggestions may be reasonable as far as modest reforms go, and some of these proposals are actually pretty far reaching, one thing that many “liberal” criminal justice reformers seem to have trouble figuring out is the need for fewer laws in the first place. […]
Aleksey Bashtavenko Academic Composition I am noticing that this kind of a thing happens only in liberal states. This is where the government is trying to prevent citizens from doing charitable work as a way of creating demand for the inefficient welfare services. The Democratic Party is categorically […]
A challenge to anarchists from what appears to be some kind of liberal or left perspective. The first problem I see with these arguments is that they do not address the actual costs of statism. By Jared C. Willis Steemit
A minarchist challenge to the anarchist position. Frankly, the anarchist vs. minarchist debate has never interested me much because both positions are so far from where we are now it’s hardly a pressing issue. Let’s just keeping chipping away at the state until the last one out turns […]

Todd Lewis and Keith Preston interview Shayne Hunter, an ex-Antifa organizer.
It’s interesting how the US is developing a class system similar to Latin America. I don’t think the reasons for this can be traced to a singular cause. It probably has several dozen causes. It’s also interesting how all the different political factions have their proposed ideal solutions. […]

And the North Koreans are the truest defenders of “democracy,” no doubt, just like “work makes you free.” I am posting this here in order to provide an illustration of the delusional nonsense that regrettably dominates much of the “far left” anarchist milieu (although this guy is arguably […]

A classic lecture from Jeffrey Rogers Hummel
An anti-anarchist discusses what is perhaps the greatest challenge to state abolitionists.
The Trump administration is Republican business as usual, as virtually all serious observers predicted it would be. The great thing about the Trump presidency is not only is Trump generally unpopular outside of his dying right-wing of the WASP middle class “base,” but he is demonstrating that Presidents […]
