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 […]

The Struggle for Bottom Unity in an Age of Division

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 […]

Tucker Carlson 2024?

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 […]

How Revolutionary is the Revolution?

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 […]

Answering a Critic

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. […]

Pick Your Own, Mix and Match

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 […]

Notes on Post-Anarchism

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).[1] Up until now, this feature of the postanarchist tendency has been criticized by various […]

Understanding the Left’s Tactics

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.
