From 2015. By Daniel Nolan, The Guardian Accessible only by car via miles of winding, dusty Croatian roads, Gornja Siga – current population zero – is an unlikely testing ground for a plan to shape the world’s political future. It is a secluded area where verdant forest meets […]
By Oliver Wainwright, The Guardian A white steel pole rises out of the sea off the Caribbean coast of Panama, poking above the waves like the funnel of a sunken steamship. Launched into the water last month, this is no shipwreck, but the base of what will soon […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley “And when the last Red Man shall have perished, and the memory of my tribe shall have become a myth among the White Men, these shores will swarm with the invisible dead of my tribe, and when your […]
I generally find the ancap/libertarians vs libsoc/ancom debate to be irrelevant, though interesting on a sufficiently abstract level, because neither side gives due recognization to the fact that governments and corporations are part of the same ruling class apparatus. It’s like two medieval anarchists arguing over, “Who should […]
An illustration of why the Goofy Gills approach fails in just over two minutes.
Donate here. Reliable people in the know have assured me that this is a legitimate self-defense case. It should be pointed out that Florida has no mercy on people that use firearms for self-defense. Center for a Stateless Society One of our most prolific writers, Logan Marie Glitterbomb, […]
Trump attorneys described Giuliani as ‘deranged’ and likened the team pushing election fraud claims to a ‘clown car,’ report says
I had Giuliani figured out years ago. He’s often thought of as a conservative because of his “law and order” policies when he was mayor of New York and as a US Attorney, but he was just a standard New York liberal Republican. The neocons tried to groom […]
One of the very best books on the modern American police state. I would add to it the works of Radley Balko, John Whitehead, Richard Lawrence Miller, and the late William Norman Grigg. “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness is a book by […]
By Benjamin Franks This paper provides an account of ideological hybridity. It describes and categorises four main types of ideological hybrid in order to examine a range of sub-ideologies and crossbreeds but concentrates on identifying and assessing the particular phenomena described as conservative (or ‘Tory’) anarchisms. The paper […]
Not that I would want to be a part of it.
A fantastic piece from Caitlin. By Caitlin Johnstone I was just watching a gaggle of blue-checkmarked narrative managers attack progressive commentators Katie Halper and Briahna Joy Gray on Twitter for platforming antiwar journalist Rania Khalek on the grounds that Khalek is an “Assadist”, which is imperialist for “someone […]
I first posted this piece in November of 2020. I am reposting it again, with some additions, in order to provide readers of Attack the System with an overview and explanation of how I approach political commentary, news analysis, theory, and strategy. By Keith Preston My general approach […]
“Pan-secessionism” seems to be increasingly common in practice. Examples include 2nd Amendment counties, sanctuary cities, autonomous zones, federal drug law nullification, refusal of lockdown orders, etc. As well as other forms of more serious “direct action” like torching enemy military outposts and star chambers, or looting corporate feudal […]
Those who make the cliched claim that “all human life has value” obviously never met these folks. And I’m no fan of Jordan Peterson whatsoever. By Joseph A. Wulfsohn | Fox News A new report shows inner turmoil that is apparently taking place at Penguin Random House Canada over […]
It’s rather amusing that Carson can’t even write a review of a left-wing pro-gun rights book without turning half the article into a culture war broadside. Although this sounds like a very good book. By Kevin Carson, Center for a Stateless Society Setting Sights: Histories and Reflections on […]
Nemonte Nenquimo, The Guardian Dear presidents of the nine Amazonian countries and to all world leaders that share responsibility for the plundering of our rainforest. My name is Nemonte Nenquimo. I am a Waorani woman, a mother, and a leader of my people. The Amazon rainforest is my […]
By Walter L. Williams, The Guardian Native Americans have often held intersex, androgynous people, feminine males and masculine females in high respect. The most common term to define such persons today is to refer to them as “two-spirit” people, but in the past feminine males were sometimes referred […]
Leftists: “Conservatives have their cancel culture, too!” Palecons: “We know.” Areo It’s been said that when Germany invaded Russia in June 1941, the Soviet military elite had been so hollowed out by Stalin’s purges that the Red Army had trouble mounting an initial counter-offensive. According to a new […]
As much lambasting as both the Frankfurt School and postmodernism get for supposedly having created “cultural Marxism,” both schools of thought are actually quite interesting. The Frankfurt School’s critique of scientism and the culture industry is essential to understanding modern societies, particularly the fusion of capitalism and totalitarian […]
I’m not convinced there needs to be a “libertarian electoral strategy.” I generally support third parties, from libertarians to greens to communists to transhumanists, as chaos agents but that’s the only real value I see in them. Listen to Tom Woods host the debate here. David Stockman, who […]
A reader writes: I wonder if Chomsky, Carson, and Gillis would approve of the Waco assault by federal government forces? The ATF was probably doing it for “women’s rights” or “to get the kids in public education.” After all, they are probably on the pipeline to becoming fashes […]
Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area epitomize nascent totalitarian humanism (“socially liberal, economically feudal”). By Shane Dixon Kavanaugh | The Oregonian/OregonLive City contractors on Tuesday removed the final remnants of a sprawling encampment along the outskirts of Laurelhurst Park, where about 100 people lived for months […]
By Robert Lynch, Quillette “Much of the glue holding modern societies together is alarmingly fragile, and triggers like September 11th can shatter this facade with devastating consequences that we are only just beginning to understand. As the evolutionary biologist E.O. Wilson wrote in his 2012 book The Social […]
Given that virtually everything is labeled as “fascism” nowadays (echoing tendencies from the past), self-education on what fascism actually was might be helpful. Stanley Payne’s work on the history of fascism is some of the best there is. The Wikipedia entry on Payne summarizes some of his basic […]
By Lucien van der Walt This article responds to criticisms of the broad anarchist tradition in International Socialism, an International Socialist Tendency (IST) journal. I will discuss topics such as the use of sources, defending revolutions and freedom, the Spanish anarchists, anarchism and democracy, the historical role of […]
By Anthony Bernabei, Vanguard Sentinel I once had a conversation with a young woman who said: ” The Constitution and it’s rights only apply to Americans”. This disregardful claim not only damages the perceived integrity of natural rights, which all men are born with, but displays a misunderstanding […]
An excellent extended interview with Patrick Wood recorded a few days ago with James Delingpole (UK), clearly defining Technocracy, the World Economic Forum’s “Great Reset” and the future of Scientific Dictatorship.
Kevin Carson is an American social theorist, self-proclaimed economist and anarchist-without-adjectives. In this episode we discuss his book The Desktop Regulatory State, alongside discussions on capitalism, post-capitalism, anarchism, hierarchy and organization.
By Cathy Reisenwitz, Sex and the State If you want to change people’s minds it’s often helpful to understand what they think and why they think it. It’s helpful to know the reasons they’ll give you. But it’s even more valuable to understand the emotions behind the reasons. […]
By Nathan Goodman, Center for a Stateless Many libertarians favor constraining the State to a limited set of powers, typically to the maintenance of police, courts, prisons, and security services designed to protect individual rights. This “protective state” or “Night-watchman” state is seen as the minarchist ideal. However, […]
By Jon Gambrell, AP News DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — An Iranian scientist named by the West as the leader of the Islamic Republic’s disbanded military nuclear program was killed Friday in an ambush on the outskirts of Tehran, authorities said. Iran’s foreign minister alleged the killing […]
By Philip Ridley The World Economic Forum’s (WEF’s) self proclaimed “Great Reset” is shaping the way governments around the world have responded to Covid-19. It sets the precedent for a “New Normal” where our Human Rights can be arbitrarily suspended for temporary or permanent states of emergency that […]
By Peter R. Quinones Barack Obama is currently on tour for his new book, “A Promised Land,’ and as you would expect the interviews are nothing but fluff in which they bring up “hard-hitting” questions about his “historic presidency.” Uncle Hotep mentioned on the Thanksgiving episode of “Hoteps […]
By Sean Gabb Andrew Percy is a Conservative Member of Parliament and is the “co-chair” of the All-Party Parliamentary Group Against Antisemitism. Writing in The Jewish Chronicle on the 24th November 2020, he said this about the term Cultural Marxism: I wrote to all Conservative MPs some time […]
A problem with Pinker’s argument is that it is not in the interest of any state or ruling class anywhere to adopt libertarian values of any kind, except rhetorically for purposes of self-legitimation, or as something that can be co-opted and bent toward other purposes. Of course, measuring […]
Duh? Asked if he would leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for Biden, Trump said: “Certainly I will. Certainly I will. And you know that.” But Trump said it would be hard for him to concede because “we know there was massive fraud,” while continuing […]
Astrophysicist, Dr. Joe Pesce, discusses the most magnetic stars in the universe. He also shines light on evidence of a fast radio burst that likely traveled to Earth from a particular type of neutron star in our Milky Way galaxy.

Things aren’t going to well. Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti analyze a report that highlights trends in the diagnosis of diseases of despair in the United States.
Contra MSNBC, Trump has actually been more hawkish on Russia than Obama. Initially, there were some neo-realists in the administration like Rex Tillerson that wanted some kind of rapprochement with Russia, but they were soon superseded by the neocons. Host of ‘Pushback with Aaron Maté’ on The Grayzone […]
Joseph Cotto and I discuss the fragmentation of the United States. Increasingly, the USA is going to be fragmented into an ever-growing number of neo-tribes that lack a common cultural framework with many of these regarding many of the others as inherently illegitimate. An electoral win by “the […]
California is a deep blue state, which is under the de facto one-party rule of the Democrats. It is a majority-minority state and one of the most culturally liberal states in the US. And yet Proposition 16 was defeated in the year of “Black Lives Matter” becoming an […]
By Duncan Whitemore, Mises UK Although I have written on the topic of how libertarian property rights can be applied to the situation of viruses in two, previous essays, it is useful to summarise this again for a clearer picture. Such an endeavor seems necessary now more than […]
James Lindsay is one of the best critics of totalitarian humanism there is, but I don’t agree with the political angle he’s taking in this interview. While Lindsay is a liberal, he’s taking the standard “conservative” position that Biden is simply a frontman that is serving as a […]
A somewhat interesting discussion between a social democrat and a Marxist. Predictably wimpy in places. –Vaush, a socialist streamer, YouTube personality, and debater, joins David to discuss the 2020 election, socialism, social democracy, activism, and much more
Obama’s autobiography ought to be called “Why I Am as Big an Asshole as My Republican Opponents.”
