Crimethinc The cop-free zone is not the particular block or traffic circle or park. It is the shared commitment to defending a space and eliminating the dynamics of policing and white supremacy. In the following collection, we explore some people’s experiences attempting to create police-free autonomous zones in […]
Nukes have made inter-state war cost prohibitive which opens the door for the fourth-generation forces. By William S. Lind Traditional Right Several weeks ago, the world got a glimpse of what future war will look like among Great Powers. The weapons were rocks and clubs. Indian and Chinese […]
By Derecka Purnell The Atlantic We called 911 for almost everything except snitching. Nosebleeds, gunshot wounds, asthma attacks, allergic reactions. Police accompanied the paramedics. Our neighborhood made us sick. A Praxair industrial gas-storage facility was at one end of my block. A junkyard with exposed military airplane and […]
I would suggest that a true “Blue Lives Matter” approach would be the same as a true “Support the Troops” approach. “Support the Troops…Bring Them Home.” “Blue Lives Matter…Call Them Off.”
On the surface-level at least, this seems like a major victory for native rights and may actually be, even if the overarching presence of the federal regime remains. If the lumpenproletariat (the most oppressed social class) is the class vanguard in the struggle against the state, Native American […]
The strategy of the dominant factions of the power elite for dealing with the present crises is overwhelmingly clear. They are trying to advance a faux “liberal populism” that they hope will attract not only the “vote blue no matter who” crowd, but enough of the “exhausted majority” […]
Who cares? Trump is obviously a narcissistic lunatic, but so-called “health experts” (white coat priesthood) have shown themselves to be a partisan/ideologically-driven liars as well: “Don’t wear masks but wear masks and don’t go to funerals but go to protests.” ABC News As President Donald Trump threatens to cut funding to […]
I, Keith Preston, officially endorse Kanye West for President of the United States on the sole condition that he selects his wife as his running mate. Now, THAT would be a representative government as the Founding Fathers intended. By Marty Johnson The Hill President Trump on Saturday expressed […]
It’s a rare occasion when I agree with Mike Pence, but sometimes it snows in April. By Tal Axelrod The Hill Vice President Pence said the decision to remove Confederate statues should be made at the local level, and panned protesters who have dismantled the monuments themselves. In […]
This case is going to be a major culture war focus. Anyone who wants to know what’s going on politically right now needs to read Carl Schmitt’s “The Concept of the Political” and “The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy,” which were written in the 1920s as the Weimar Republic […]
I don’t really agree with Tuccille’s claim that “Libertarians and others who haven’t turned life into a political package deal may need to serve as translators and peacemakers for countrymen who have lost the ability to talk to one another.” As a platonic ideal that may be true, […]
The best hope for the future of freedom worldwide is the fracturing of the global capitalist empire in which the USA ruling class is a senior into a smorgasbord of regional powers and micronations. The best hope for the future of freedom in the USA is for the […]
This article needs to be spread far and wide. Although I would distinguish between the actual lumpenproletarian and mostly non-ideological insurgents and the middle-class Maoist cosplayers. By Matt Taibbi It’s the Fourth of July, and revolution is in the air. Only in America would it look like this: […]
Only on Attack the System will you find articles from Chronicles and It’s Going Down side-by-side.
My biographical article on Burham for Chronicles which includes a discussion of the managerial revolution and power elite theory. Burham is a must-read for those who want to know how modern states actually work. By Keith Preston Chronicles The ideological trajectory followed by the first generation of neoconservatives, […]
The Red Tribe will never be able to put up effective resistance to the state because it is so inculcated with attitudes like this. The dwindling of the Red Tribe combined with the fracturing of the Blue Tribe is probably the best hope for the rest of us.
“Nietzsche was not a social theorist but a poet, a rebel and innovator. His aristocracy was neither of birth nor of purse; it was of the spirit. In that respect Nietzsche was an anarchist, and all true anarchists were aristocrats, I said” – Emma Goldman
By Jesse Singal Reason I’m not usually a fan of the saying “a hit dog will holler,” which basically boils down to “if someone responds angrily to an accusation, they are probably guilty.” Sometimes, when someone is unfairly attacked or wrongly accused, they respond to it with vitriol […]
This is a pretty good discussion of this issue from Kyle. I agree with much of what he says, although I wish he would have given more recognition to the centuries-long history of censorship and state repression by leftist regimes. Usually, the response I get from leftists when […]
When BLM came to Mayberry. By Anne Helen Petersen Buzzfeed Lois Dennis started teaching second grade in the village of Bethel, Ohio — official population just under 2,800 — back in 1976. People in town call her Mrs. Dennis. And that’s the name people used online when they […]
He makes as much sense as the other candidates. I definitely prefer Kanye over Trump and Biden. Trump has done his part to discredit the state, but now it’s time to pass the torch to another crazy guy.
When people can no longer meet their basic needs like food and shelter is when the shit really hits the fan. Increases in food costs precipitated the Arab Spring. That a third of Americans can no longer afford their rent or mortgage payments as the moratoriums on rent […]
The part about “anti-racist racism” (around 3:45) is interesting.
So a Biden administration means World War Three and the imprisonment of entire ethnic groups without trial or conviction of a crime. Possibly so. The performance of Sanders, Chomsky, Biden, and Trump in recent years is evidence that the traditional idea of heeding the advice of elders should […]
The coronavirus-related shutdown has dramatically accelerated the descent of the US into a Latin American-style class system.
A WWE matchup. I suppose it has never occurred to any of these guys that systemic racism can exist within the context of a totalitarian humanist regime, just as class oppression can exist in a Communist regime, or that ethnic Germans were oppressed by the Third Reich.
Uh, see the history of the 20th century. I once had a student who had grown up in Nicolae Ceausescu’s Romania. I asked her what the Communists of her adolescence would have made of the Antifa or intersectional left. She very casually and seriously replied that the former […]
A quasi-SJW makes his case. The main problem that I have with his arguments is that he seems to imply that all non-leftist thought is by definition illegitimate and/or the equivalent of fascism. Although I agree with his point that right-wingers are often only in favor of free […]
The kids are alright. By Nick Turse The Intercept In the face of protests composed largely of young people, the presence of America’s military on the streets of major cities has been a controversial development. But this isn’t the first time that Generation Z — those born after 1996 — has popped […]
Did the intellectual class finally grow a pair after realizing the new clerisy can come after them as well?
Gee, I can’t imagine why. The discussion of local government around 7:15-20 is interesting.
This is from January, before the recent uprising. A quasi-left-anarchist/libertarian-socialist and a cop debate/discuss.
What the map of the world looked like before the rise of imperial states although a lot of groups are obviously missing as this is a map of the groups that survive to the present. My vision of the future is a world of millions of micro-cultures, ranging […]
Historically, the main sources of conflict other than economics and statecraft have been religion and ethno-tribal identity. In modernity, religion eventually gave way to ideology as the primary mode of thinking, in late modernity ethno-tribal identity is giving way to social identity. For example, LGBTQs essentially have the […]
A somewhat interesting review of Abimael Guzman’s autobiography. For quite some time, I have held the view that the Shining Path developed what is arguable the most advanced critique of imperialism on the Marxist “far-left,” although it’s not substantially different from what anarchist anti-imperialists were saying in the […]
No, they wouldn’t. It just couldn’t be. LOL
LOL. An African-American Marxist is attacked by totalitarian humanist DSA as a “class reductionist.”
Keith Preston and Todd Lewis interview Agir Cudi a Kurdish anarchist and pacifist who has resists the tyranny of the Turkish regime.
The peasants vote for their favorite manor. This is a pretty slick work of corporate propaganda. Even Raytheon is included in this, lol. By Joel Anderson Sometimes a company is more than just a business. At times, a particular brand might start as a way to capture one […]
The worst thing about the upcoming election is that someone is going to win.
By Martha C. White NBC News As jobs vanish, incomes drop and food prices rise, more Americans are going to bed hungry — and advocates warn that without intervention from Congress, those numbers could rise to a level unseen in modern times. “People who never thought they’d experience […]
By Jackson Lears The New York Review of Books It is hard to give up something you claim you never had. That is the difficulty Americans face with respect to their country’s empire. Since the era of Theodore Roosevelt, politicians, journalists, and even some historians have deployed euphemisms—“expansionism,” […]
By Zoë Jackson Minneapolis Star Tribune Minneapolis couple Lex and Celina Berndt did not expect to marry after just a four-month engagement. Celina, 24, popped the question on Valentine’s Day, with an idyllic backdrop of a beach in Puerto Rico.
A pretty good overview of the sociological relationship between race, class, and crime.
This reminds of a lot of pamphlets I used to see circulating in the 70s and 80s: “How to Keep Your Kids Off Drugs,” “How to Know if Your Kid is Dabbling in the Occult,” “How to Witness to Your Neighbor Who Doesn’t Know Jesus,” “Communism’s Plan for […]
As crazy as Noam has gotten in his old age, he still stands up to the new clerisy. Kudos.
Will Trump’s legacy be that of the president who was such a dumbass he couldn’t win reelection against a dementia patient?
