Zizek has some of the best analysis of anyone on the Left out there today, even if his proposed solutions are awful.
An interesting discussion of Abimael Guzman’s autobiography. Some readers have suggested that I am too Eurasianist in my geopolitical outlook, but I’d argue I’m actually closer to the Senderos than the Duginists. Obviously, I don’t share their Maoist fundamentalism, but their geopolitical outlook was to reject both the […]
By David Gordon Anthony de Jasay, an important free market economist and political philosopher passed away on January 23. Born in Hungary in 1925, he studied at Nuffield College, Oxford, where he was a protégé of I.M.D. Little, a leading authority on welfare economics. Like Little, de Jasay […]
At last, some anarchists who get it. Woke Anarchists Anarchism in the UK is a joke. Once symbolising hard-fought struggles for freedom, the word has been stripped bare to make way for narrow-minded, separatist and hateful identity politics by middle class activists keen to protect their own privileges. […]
Todd Lewis is joined by Will Mclean and Fulton Skipworth to discuss the military performance and reevaluate the legacy of USA and British commanders.
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley I’ve long considered myself to be a feminist, even before I realized I was trans. It’s always seemed like basic common sense to me that people shouldn’t be defined by the contents of their genitalia but by the […]
Well, if we didn’t know what was up in Venezuela before. Podhoretz son-in-law back in the game. As a general rule, I think Trump has been better on Russia, China, the DPRK, Afghanistan and Syria than a conventional Republican or neoconservative would have been (all things considered). But […]
Not exactly the kind of left/right coalition I would envision, but you’ve got to crawl before you can run, I guess. By Matthew Rozsa Salon.Com In my recent interview with Tucker Carlson, he waited until nearly the end of a long conversation to drop a bomb: He might […]
That so many Western, particularly American, right-wingers are fans of Bolsonaro illustrates why the Right remains as useless as the Left. Geopolitca.RU Elected president of Brazil last October, with more than 55% of the vote, Jair Bolsonaro just took office. The left, which multiplies the anathemas against him […]
By J P Cortez Phoenix, Arizona (January 22, 2019) – An Arizona legislator has put forward a bill to de-risk the state’s financial holdings with a modest allocation to physical gold and silver in the state’s reserve fund. Introduced by Representative Mark Finchem (R-Tucson), the Arizona Sound Money […]
Jimmie Dore has an interesting take on this.
Press TV. Listen here. The passage of two US warships through the Taiwan Strait on Thursday is part of Washington’s efforts to compete with China and preserve its domination in the Asia-Pacific region, says an American political analyst in Virginia.
Mr. Antifa Intellectual serves up the “Anarcho-MSNBC” line. This kind of stuff is why I started attacking anarcho-social democrats and totalitarian humanists so vehemently 20 years ago. Regrettably, a substantial tendency has developed among “anarchists” that opposes regional or localized illiberalism more than it opposes imperialism, opposes marginal […]

By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley Washington is a fucking zoo. The entire town seems to be teeming with an almost demonic energy that’s usually reserved for Third World capitals hours before the fall of some CIA funded cannibal despot. We have had fucked […]
Listen here. A court in the United States has confirmed the arrest of US-born Iranian Press TV news presenter Marzieh Hashemi as a material witness in an unspecified investigation.

By J.P. Cortez Cheyenne, Wyoming (January 17, 2019) – A group of Wyoming legislators have introduced three bills this week to de-risk the state’s financial holdings with modest allocations to physical gold and silver in the state’s pension fund, reserve fund, and mineral trust fund. Introduced by Representative […]
Apparently, the C4SS crowd is now being attacked by rival leftists for being associated with “fascists,” with yours truly being among the primary exhibits in favor of the prosecution. And the accuser is none less than Max Blumenthal, son of former Bill Clinton advisor Sidney Blumenthal. I have […]
The Russian Bear is the Wizard of Oz, and Putin is the man behind the curtain. The Russophilia of the far left/far right and the Russophobia of the center left/center right is pathetic. My own geopolitical outlook is more like that of the classical anarchists of the late […]
This is a pretty good discussion of Gabbard. From what I can tell, she’s basically just a moderate who trends liberal on social issues, who is pro-military, pro-Israel, and pro-terror war but who merely thinks the neocon/neoliberal foreign policy paradigm is insane (which it is), largely from her […]
MSN.Com Iran’s foreign minister called for the United States to release Press TV anchor Marzieh Hashemi in comments carried on the website of state-run IRNA news. Iranian state-funded Press TV reported Wednesday morning that Hashemi, a journalist born in the United States as Melanie Franklin, was detained in […]
Berniebro Kyle Kulinski on the divide between the neocons and paleocons. I generally agree with Kulinski’s analysis here.
Keith Preston, director of the Attackthesystem.com “The arrest of Marzieh Hashemi is clearly an effort to silence voices that speak in opposition to the policies of the American government, and to intimidate others to prevent them from speaking. Marzieh Hashemi is being used as a hostage for the […]
The United States’ partial government shutdown drags into its fourth consecutive week as President Donald Trump and Democrats fail to settle their scores over funding a border wall. The stalemate has led to the closure of at least 25 percent of the federal operation since December 22. Air […]

The speaker of the US House of Representatives says the Democrats have a better idea to improve the country’s border security and eventually end the prolonged government shutdown. Nancy Pelosi added that it is now up to President Donald Trump to make the next move to end the […]
Neither Open nor Closed but Decentralized Borders: The Revolutionary Potential of Illegal Immigrants
An immensely important essay given the current controversies. “It seems as if the time has come to abandon terms like open and closed borders in favor of decentralized borders. We imagine a free society with decentralized borders would consist of a mixture of open borders, closed borders, public […]

A very important read. Absorb every word of this. By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley This holiday season was unusually kind to the anti-imperialists among us. Trump shocked the world the week before Christmas by actually putting America first for a change and calling […]
Today I will be joined by Keith Preston for our fourth and final installment of Pan-Anarchism to discuss the hard question of national defense.
My reading of the history of the 20th century is that Capitalism, Communism and Fascism were merely different points on the same triangle that deserved each other. All three were responsible for tens of millions of deaths.
It’s interesting how even the leadership of the military caste has bought into the System’s ideology of combining imperialism and neoliberal economics with cultural leftism. Careerists will be careerists, I guess. Mattis and McChrystal: “We gotta make sure the wine and cheese crowd will buy our books and […]
By Jerry Taylor Niskanen Center When we launched the Niskanen Center in January 2015, we happily identified ourselves as libertarians. Sure, we were heterodox libertarians, but there are many schools of libertarianism beyond those promoted by Charles Koch’s political operations. The school we identified with was a left-libertarianism […]

US security forces have engaged with migrants at the country’s southern border with Mexico. US border patrol agents used tear gas to keep the group from approaching the crossing line. The recent deaths of two immigrant children in U-S custody have piled pressure on President Donald Trump for […]
A predictable shit show. I love political fractiousness. Virtually none of the contending factions associated with the present political/culture war paradigm have any relevance to the pan-anarchist position. All of them are groups that seek control of the state or seek to solicit favors from the state. The […]
A pro-free speech progressive vs an antifa on free speech. I am actually somewhere between these two guys. I am all for violence against the state (when tactically appropriate) but opposed to either censorship/deplatforming of mere expression of opinions or violence against other political groups that are against […]
