It is never a good thing when people in a society start killing each other with a greater degree of frequency. But incidents of this type are the natural consequence of 50 years of economic and social policies that have turned the USA into a Third World society […]
A Judge Asked Harvard to Find Out Why So Many Black People Were In Prison. They Could Only Find 1 Answer: Systemic Racism
The problem with “systemic racism” analysis of this kind is that, while not factually wrong on its face, no context is provided. The assumption is that the present system would be fine if only it were less racist, which has the effect of obscuring and obfuscating critiques of […]
An electoral contest between Nina Turner and Tucker Carlson would actually be something of an improvement over the norm. Not because it would make any difference in terms of state actions because Presidents are not the real bosses of the USA, only managers. But because it would elevate […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley “The most interesting political questions throughout history have been whether or not humans will be ruled or free, whether they will be responsible for their actions as individuals or left irresponsible as members of society, and whether they can live in peace by volitional agreements alone.” -Karl Hess “We’ve got to […]
There would be certain tactical advantages to this. The Left always performs much, much better when a Republican is in office. The anti-establishment populist-right would continue to be rallied. The division between the Republican “base” and Republican establishment would continue to expand as would the divide between the […]
Fourth-generation warfare on the rise.
Founder of Articles of Union, Brett Weinstein, discusses how Twitter suspended their campaign account for promoting a non-partisan unity ticket.
This pedo/rapist/senile/police statist/bankster flunkie/warmonger is the supposed “lesser evil” our “progressive” friends want us to vote for. Democracy Now On the campaign trail, Joe Biden said Thursday that if elected president, he might increase military spending — even beyond the Pentagon’s current record budget of $738 billion. Biden […]
By Mike Gleason, Money Metals Exchange Over the past month, gold has traded in a range with support around $1,900. Bulls have made a couple unsuccessful attempts to retake and hold above the $2,000 level following the sharp plunge below it on August 11th. But we are likely […]

They’ve also embedded themselves in the Trump administration with most “progressives” being co-opted stooges. Listen here. Scott interviews James Carden about his latest article, which explores the recent return of many prominent neocons to the Democratic Party in opposition to Trump. Carden reminds us that during the 1960s […]
The Zionist/Sunni alliance strengthens. It’s also interesting how the neoliberals, Never Trumper neocons, and Trumpists all hold to an “Israel First” foreign policy paradigm with the social democrats usually being a bit wishy-washy at best. By Jason Ditz Antiwar.Com A joint statement between Bahrain and the United States […]
By Robert Mackey The Intercept Four police departments in parts of Oregon ravaged by wildfires — propelled by high winds across parched land during hot, dry weather in a changing climate — are pleading with the public to stop calling 911 to pass on unfounded rumors that antifascist […]
A couple years ago, I was interviewed by a supposed “post-left” podcast that ridiculed my suggestion that anti-imperialism should be the priority issue of North American anarchists on the grounds that the US empire is the world’s leading mass murderer. At the same time, the hosts of the […]
Well, “capitalist communism” seems to be working for the Chinese. Daily Mail/Zero Hedge There’s no better example of groupthink taking over people’s common sense than $41.7 billion clothing retailer Lululemon, who sells signature yoga pants for $128, holding a seminar on “resisting capitalism”. But, it’s 2020 and so, […]

A friend writes: Every indication points towards this being a fake revolution. First, this revolution *is* televised, and gets favorable press coverage, with the embarrassing parts downplayed or ignored. Then, the corporations get on board, emblazoning the revolutionary slogan on their commodities. Half of the ruling duopoly has […]
A social media poster says of yours truly: This guy is fash. If you look through any of this website, you see that he is constantly attacking the left and praising the right. He authors articles for far-right/conservative websites and writes eulogies for infamous reactionaries like James Buchanan. […]
Anarchist News What kind of anarchist best describes you? If you embrace a label (or labels), what are they and why? I have gone by anarcho-feminist, at least until I was confronted by too many others using the same label to mean something totally different. If no existing […]
By Sureyyya Evren Anarchist Library There is a postanarchist reduction of classical anarchism seen in texts of some key writers on post-anarchism (like Todd May, Saul Newman, Lewis Call or more recently Richard Day). Up until now, this feature of the postanarchist tendency has been criticized by various […]
A conman capitulated to the neocons. Who could’ve guessed?
The circulation of the power elite (Mosca and Mills).
Two of the world’s shittiest countries realize they can become even bigger dickheads by joining forces. Middle East Monitor The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel are working on a plan to establish a spy base in the Yemeni Island of Socotra, according to JForum, the official sites […]
Sounds like discrimination against transracial people. By Joelle Goldstein People Jessica Krug, the white professor at George Washington University (GWU) who admitted to pretending to be Black throughout her adult life, has resigned from her position. In a tweet from GWU on Wednesday, the school announced that Krug’s […]
It’s a term you’ve probably heard a lot. Late Stage Capitalism. People use it to describe the absurdities and wild inequalities of the world today. But what is it exactly, and are we really living in it? And if so, what comes next?
The way this writer describes how each century seems to give rise to a major empire which then expires during the following century is interesting. Since the rise of Western hegemony, it was Portugal, followed by Spain, then Holland, France, England, and now America.
This book is a must-read or anyone who is interested in how the modern American police state developed. This was originally published in the mid-1990s and describes how drug prohibition has been used as a smokescreen for the development of a large and intense as police state as […]
This book is a must-read for anyone who is interested in anti-globalization movements. The most important political question in the 21st century is how do we fight globalization without erecting repeats of 20th-century tyrannies like Communism, Nazism, and Islamism, or merely creating an endless series of chaostic failed […]
Class conflict on the local level.
Derrick Broze actually shows up in this and talks sense to these voting-mongers.
“Please, please, vote for me!”-Donald Trump
So FOX is posing as the antiwar channel now? Except for when the beneficiaries are Israel and Saudi Arabia, of course.
Why would anyone expect any different?
Are Latinos going to be the new “white ethnics?”
A study conducted by the Pew Research Center in 2006. Virtually all research on this topic shows that those who don’t vote are most likely to come from disadvantaged sectors and that they don’t vote because they know there is nothing in it for them. “Liberal democracy” is […]
What I find most interesting about this piece is how it illustrates that the various factions of the “Left” and “Right,” broadly defined, not only have different philosophies and political preferences but different realities as well. Can people who have totally different ideas on what reality even is […]

The mindcrime liberty show is joined with guest Keith Preston to discuss the topic of whether free state healthcare and education increased the cause of freedom. Two of the biggest areas where state power has grown is in the fields of education and healthcare both of which have […]
It would certainly seem that way.
In an ideal situation, right-wing vigilantes would provide protection to residential neighborhoods, mom and pop shops, and the general public, while left-wing vigilantes burned down police stations and the lumpenproletariat looted Wal-Mart. But I’ve noticed that many situations tend to be less than ideal.
All of this intra-ruling class intrigue is hilarious. It reminds me of the Medici of the Italian Renaissance era, although the Medici were classier and more stylish.
