Totten City-Journal Neill Blomkamp’s 2013 science-fiction film Elysium, starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, takes place in Los Angeles, circa 2154.

Antifascism and the Left’s Fear of Power

This speech might have just as well been delivered by a member of the Bloods and titled, “Anti-Cripism and the Bloods’ Fear of Power.” Although it’s probably more appropriate to compare this stuff to “Ghostbusters” than to street gangs. Increasingly, I am leaning toward the view that the […]

The Empire Strikes Back?

It is fascinating to observe the kind of paranoia that is now being disseminated by the Western elites in the face of the rising though very modest challenges that are now being presented by the BRICS-Shia-Global South alliance in international relations, and by left/right populist tendencies within Western […]

Truth!

Tom Woods interviews Michael Malice, one of the West’s most insightful commentators on North Korea. Listen here. I’d like for the upcoming Trump-Kim summit to be a “Nixon Goes to China” moment, and for Kim Jong-Un to become the DPRK’s Deng Xiaoping. But I’m not holding my breath. […]

The Truth About War Powers, the Military-Industrial Complex, and Militarism in American Culture

Tom Woods interviews leading antiwar commentator Scott Horton. Listen here. This is what our so-called “antifascists” should be attacking, rather than forming a neoconservative-liberal international-human rights imperialist-antifascist axis in service of the Anglo-American-Zionist-Wahhabi empire. ———————————— In something of a potpourri episode, Scott Horton and I discuss the real […]

The Totalitarian Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Tom Wood and Gerard Casey discussion the philosopher on whose ideas most modern political theory is based. The “social contract” is modernity’s version of the god-emperor and the divine right of kinds. Debunking social contract theory is fundamental to the advancement of the anarchist position. Listen here. The […]
