  1. I have wonderful news for you, cool Mr.Keith Preston, that the equally awesome, but not perfect C4SS has a nice new article that calls out the dumb nature of the Illiberal Regressive Left SJW Pansies:

    I have a feeling that my ideological Libertarian Left comrades might suffer the wrath of the Illiberal Regressive Left SJWs, cause SJWs think the word spook is racist. We should have warned our great comrade Kevin Carson about it. I tried to warn him about it on Twitter, and he got overwhelmed by me. At least it’s great that my e-mail conversations with him have been positive, he didn’t mean to block me though. I need to explain that I’m autistic.

        • I mean that if C4SS is calling out the excesses of PC, then PC must be really out of control. I actually like and agree with many of the things on C4SS, although they always seemed to take the PC stuff into the Twilight Zone.

          My general feeling about the “identity” politics issues is that I am only interested in working with people who want to move past all that. And that includes those from the Right as much as from the Left. Everyone is going to have their own take on those questions based on their own experiences and vantage points. I have no problem tolerating contending views on identity issues just as I have no problem tolerating contending religious beliefs, economic preferences, food practices, sexual lifestyles, scientific theories, historical interpretations, etc. But as I have said before, endless debates about “Who is most oppressed?” don’t interest me. I see endless arguing over those conflicts as playing into the system’s hands.
