“National-populism” is not going to be any more successful at rolling back the globalization of neoliberalism than throne and altar traditionalists were successful at rolling back classical liberalism, the industrial revolution, and the rise of modernity.
Professor Noam Chomsky gives his thoughts on the future of the left and weighs in on the current state of the media landscape.
So this election is basically a contest between two factions of corrupt opportunists accusing each other of fascism? Kind of like the Stalin/Trotsky rivalry?
This makes the important point that Trump is surrounded by neocons and largely governs as one though less aggressively so than, for example, George W. Bush.
“Looting” is just a “stimulus plan” organized from the bottom up at the grassroots level and implemented through direct action.
Fourth-generation warfare escalates.
A funny comment from the thread: “Republican Marriage: A man, a woman, his daughter, his pool boy, his prostitutes, and Lindsey Graham.”
I’ve been impressed with some of the discussions that have been taking place at A-News in recent months. The discussion that follows this piece is pretty good in places. There needs to be a psychic sea change in the general anarchist milieu away from hysterical leftism, which is […]
It’s somewhat surprising that C4SS would post an article like this. By Dakota Hensley Individualism, community, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, and faith are the values of the people of Appalachia. It is in these values that we find an anarchism that has existed in the cities and rural communities for […]
By Yoram Hazony I. The collapse of institutional liberalism For a generation after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, most Americans and Europeans regarded Marxism as an enemy that had been defeated once and for all. But they were wrong. A mere 30 years later, Marxism […]
By Mike Gleason, Money Metals Exchange As the Federal Reserve embarks on a new campaign to raise inflation rates, markets may be in for a change in character. On Wednesday, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell announced that the central bank would be targeting an inflation “average” of 2%. By […]

The Weimarization of the US continues to escalate. Apparently, the person killed was some right-wing guy. Who did the killing? A leftist or BLM supporter? The cops? A rival right-winger? A random shooter? An anonymous vigilante? Oregon Live One man was shot and killed in downtown Portland as […]
By William S. Lind Traditional Right The way the Presidential election is shaping up, most of the big issues will not be openly stated. They include race, with the Republicans the White party and the Democrats the black and immigrant party; socialism, with the Democrats in favor and […]
By Meagan Day The Jacobin On August 19, President Donald Trump gave a nod of approval to believers in the QAnon conspiracy theory, which maintains that the president is secretly fighting to save the world from an elite satanic pedophile network, calling them “people that love our country.” […]
One thing that I have endeavored to point out to American “radicals” is that the US government is not merely the government of the 50 states but the government of most, if not all, of the world. The US directly or indirectly controls the internal politics of the […]
By Paul Gottfried The American Conservative In a perceptive and properly passionate piece on why “woke capitalism is a vanguard of unfreedom,” Rod Dreher notes that American corporations have become radically totalitarian and socially destructive. In pursuit of intersectional politics and anti-white, anti-male indoctrination, corporate executives now impose […]
Totalitarian humanism as the ideology of the rising sectors of the capitalist.
This is a must listen. Pete Quinones interviews Bellamy Fitzpatrick on Ted Kaczynski. From what I gather, the Goofy Gillis/Alexander Rodham Ross sectors of the anarchist milieu about the interest in Kaczynski among other anarchists. Because fascism or something. Listen to the interview here. Bellamy Fitzpatrick is a […]
Go, Kanye, go. This is exactly what we need. More and more unhinged lunatics coming out of the woodwork to make the system look as ridiculous as possible. By Tal Axelrod The Hill Rapper Kanye West is suing the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) to get his name on […]
Donald Trump plugs Ivanka as the first female president claiming Kamala Harris is ‘not competent’ enough for the top job
A new royal dynasty is formed? This stuff just keeps getting better. At least she’d be a PILF. By Sophie Ankel Business Insider Speaking at a New Hampshire campaign rally on Friday night, President Trump said Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris is “not competent” enough to become […]
This shit is fucking hilarious. This is like some atheist video featuring former Jehovah’s Witnesses talking about how Christopher Hitchens awakened them from their “dogmatic slumber” (Kant) or, alternatively, some evangelical video with folks talking about how Jesus rescued them from their drug/alcohol/porn/video game addiction.
It’s a shame that YouTubers that were once somewhat interesting are increasingly sounder like FOX News for a younger audience. Tim Pool, Styxenhammer666, etc. are more and more sounding like Tucker Carlson wannabes.
The best thing about Trump is that he portrays the state as it ought to be portrayed. The mafia writ large. The overlords of the empire are concerned Trump is breaking kayfabe.
The Democrats are basically the same as the neoliberal parties in Latin America and slightly to the right of the neoliberal parties in Europe. Kim’s correct that the Republicans are moving slightly leftward while the Democrats are moving rightward.
By far, the worst things about Trump are his total subservience to Israel and Saudi Arabia, along with his Iranophobia and Sinophobia. Trump seems to be aligned with a neo-realist faction of the ruling class, deep state, and power elite that regards China as the primary enemy as […]
There is a discussion in this which references how both sides seem to be planning on saying the election was illegitimate if they lose.
Rand Paul has some good instincts and has obviously learned some important things from his father. But he needs to read his Lysander Spooner, Benjamin Tucker, Karl Hess, or Murray Rothbard much more carefully. Although I suspect he’s correct when he speculates about a “color coded revolution” going […]
That’s a pretty good cover for the fact that Biden can hardly talk anymore.
Will Trump’s Nixonian strategy work?
This actually makes sense to some degree. Marine Le Pen’s strongest districts are the ones that used to go for the French Communist Party.
Is a 1789 moment on its way? Krystal and Saagar discuss 1 million jobless claims as CEO confidence increases and billionaire Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk’s bank accounts surpass $200 and $100 billion, respectively.

From the moment I saw that Anthony Fauci was in charge of the COVID-19 response, my feeling was, “Oh, no, not this guy again.” By Sean Strub Huffington Post
This #WalkAway thing is another dead end. The Left has accused #WalkAway of being a Russian front operation the same way McCarthyites used to claim everything on the Left was a Soviet front. It seems more likely that all of these “back and forth” groups are being encouraged […]
From trailer park white nationalism to shilling for Goldman-Sachs (which represents the upper strata of the global ruling class) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (the FBI-connected televangelists of the “left”). Now THAT’S upward mobility. As an ethnographer of fringe subcultures, I come across this kind of stuff […]
Matthew Heimbach resembles a pro wrestler who makes his name as a heel character and then tries to become an even bigger name by switching to a face character. This sounds like the #WalkAway of the Alt-Right, lol. A former Nazi becomes a Commie and former SJWs become […]
By David Harsanyi National Review Using the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System, National Shooting Sports Foundation, a firearm trade association, estimates that there were over 12 million guns bought in the first seven months of 2020 — up more than 70 percent over the same time span […]
A reader offers the following observations on how the Red Tribe and Blue Tribe increasingly view victory by the “other side” to be inherently illegitimate, regardless of votes taken. For example, despite their objections to the Electoral College, there were Blue Tribers who were calling for the Electoral […]
‘Never Trumper’ Stuart Stevens, longtime GOP operative, says he would even vote for Bernie Sanders to beat Trump
A George W. Bush loyalist says he prefers Bernie over Trump. Neocons and Antifa United Against the Orange Fuhrer! By Suzanne Smalley Yahoo News Stuart Stevens has been a top strategist for Republican presidential candidates George W. Bush and Mitt Romney. His knack for advertising and media has […]
Don’t try this at home, kids.
A “worst” night for the GOP would be an off-the-scale disaster as opposed to the usual merely pathetic norm.
I would like to see a party of this type emerge. It would probably be a total SJW shitshow, and I wouldn’t vote for it. But it would still be interesting/entertaining. I definitely appreciate West’s admission that an anti-Trumpist axis ranging from Maoists to neocons has emerged in […]
The QAnon of the neoliberals.
Keeping Biden in the basement is probably a bad strategy for the Dems, but letting him out of the strategy would be an even worse strategy. If I were a Democratic Party strategist, my advice would be to keep him from getting anywhere near a camera or a […]
Donnie Jr.’s plastic surgery disaster of a girlfriend trying to do her Eva Peron impersonation. Sorry, Kim, but Eva did it better.
But is the “post-bourgeois proletariat” (Sam Francis) stupid enough to fall for it? That’s the question. Krystal and Saager are unique among the journalistic class in the sense of actually being competent and truthful. Most mainstream media is neither. It’s a shame their politics are such lame reformist-statist […]
The spectacle of neocons and Trumpists shooting at each other does not sound entirely unappealing. Saager’s analysis in this is pretty solid. The GOP, barring radical changes, seems destined to be a regionally based fringe party in what will amount to a one-party state.
Uh, dude, they were done with “blue-collar workers” in 1972. You’re almost 50 years behind the times, bro. Dutton strategy, dude, Dutton strategy.
