Keith, Emma & RJ Game Stop vs Wall Street, Robinhood, micro-revolts in the United States, Dodger Stadium’s COVID-19 vaccination site temporarily shut down after protesters gather at entrance, Robinhood was supposed to be for the little guy, Citadel, aristocrats pretending to be friends with the peasants, rich people […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley Even a bitter Queer curmudgeon like myself has to begrudgingly admit that we’ve come a long way, baby. I don’t know if I can join the chorus of pretty pink-washed celebrities in singing “It gets better!” After all, […]
Ken Klippenstein, investigative reporter at The Intercept, Post, joins Emma Vigeland to discuss the fallout from the failed Capitol insurrection in terms of our national security and law enforcement agencies, as well as a potential expansion of indiscriminate terrorism laws to domestic terrorists, and why that’s problematic.
I recently wrote about how January has been the 20 year anniversary of the founding of Attack the System. It is interesting to reflect on what has happened in the subsequent two decades. In 2001, the US empire was arguably at its apex, firmly in control of a […]
The Myth of the Private Sector, Part I: Why Big-Small and Vertical-Horizontal Trumps “Public-Private”
I generally agree with the framework Carson outlines in this. It is for these reasons that I abstain from the mainstream “capitalism vs socialism” or “big government vs private sector” debate, although Carson himself usually ends up taking the positions of a functional social democrat/anarcho-Democrat like the right-libertarians […]
For decades, I advocated that anarchists move in a direction more like pan-secessionism. And now some anarchists have picked up the torch. I advocated for a libertarian-influenced insurgency, and now the Boogaloo Boys have picked up the torch. I advocated for a rapprochement between the radical left and […]
An interesting essay on economic history from Kevin Carson. I’ve found that it’s possible to make interesting comparisons and find interesting parallels between different public intellectuals. I’ve said before that Noam Chomsky is the Bertrand Russell of our time, the elder left-liberal icon whose ideas range from the […]
A somewhat interesting discussion of different perspectives on both Trump and historic fascism from a hard-left perspective. The debate still churns among scholars and political commentators: “is this fascism?” Trump has ignited public interest in the decades-long and unresolved historical debate about the specific characteristics of fascism as […]
It’s interesting how the Left appears to be fragmenting into multiple camps concerning the question of who is most oppressed, who is the revolutionary actor, etc. The big debates seem to be between the “class reductionist,” “intersectionality,” and”anti-whiteness” camps, with the latter tendency defining racism as all “non-leftist” […]
As I have said before, political ideologies are the new religions and political interest groups and subcultures are the new ethno-cultural/linguistic tribes. By Devin Foley, Intellectual Takeout If you’ve ever spent any time in politics, especially during caucus or primary season, you will quickly learn that there are […]
Watch this idiot end up being Attorney General or even President someday. Team Rising reacts to reports that Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York and his administration underreported nursing home COVID deaths by thousands.
By Matt Agorist, Free Thought Project In the last three weeks, after the Trumpists were duped into thinking they could stop the election of Joe Biden by walking into the capitol and taking selfies with cops, the American technocratic police state has shifted into hyperdrive. In the name […]

Anarchism, Libertarianism and Environmentalism: Anti-Authoritarian Thought and the Search for Self-Organizing Societies
By Damian Finbar White and Gideon Kossoff Few intellectual currents have played as influential a role in the development and shaping of modern environmentalism as the anarchist and libertarian tradition of social and political thought. Generalizations about common ideological roots to a politics as diverse and internally divided […]
By J.D. Tuccille, Reason In the panicked aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the powers-that-be dusted off wish lists of surveillance-state powers and began monitoring and tracking us in ways that affect our lives two decades later. The political turbulence of recent years, culminating in the Capitol riot […]

By Tim Elmo Feiten This paper criticizes a range of recent positions on Max Stirner’s relationship to the anarchist canon. A recent rise in academic attention to Stirner offers a possibility for new analyses to clear away the misconceptions of the past, however some old mistakes are still […]

Saagar Enjeti provides the latest updates on the Reddit versus Wall Street story.
Krystal Ball analyzes the growing anger American people have with the elites.
By Matt Taibbi In the fall of 2008, America’s wealthiest companies were in a pickle. Short-selling hedge funds, smelling blood as the global economy cratered, loaded up with bets against finance stocks, pouring downward pressure on teetering, hyper-leveraged firms like Morgan Stanley and Citigroup. The free-market purists at […]
This is interesting. YouTuber, @Shoe0nHead, also known as June Lapine, discusses what it was like to film a video at the infamous Capitol riots and what she learned from Trump supporters.
Forget Russia and China. We know whose “interference” we need to be concerned about. Dr. Trita Parsi, Georgetown Professor And Executive Vice President For The Quincy Institute For Responsible Statecraft, discusses the Biden administration’s policy plans for the Middle East.
If Trump manages to destroy the Republican Party he really will have performed a “service to his country.”
This is awesome. Fracture, fracture, fracture…A Congress fragmented into a 3-way fight between neoliberals, social democrats, and Taylor-Greene/Boebert wingnuts would be funny as hell. Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke about adding more security for elected officials and declared that the enemy is within the House of Representatives.
Saager speculates that Marjorie Taylor Greene represents the future of the Republican Party. That would be hilarious to have dozens of fruitbats like her in the Congress. Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti react to Senate Democrats attempting to gather bipartisan support for censuring Donald Trump as a conviction […]
System hysteria-mongering aside, there is some truth to this in the sense that as the Red Tribe continues to sink, some of its sub-tribes will continue to become more radicalized and determined to go down fighting, embracing a wide range of “extremist” perspectives along the way.
A sign of a decaying empire is when the ruling class becomes so arrogant they no longer feel the need to maintain the loyalty of the military. Big mistake from their vantage point.
The imperialists know their empire is getting harder to maintain. The Trumpists seemed to be trying to outsource its maintenance to client states and allies like Israel, the Gulf States, Turkey, etc. The Bidenists will probably adopt something like the “multi-partner” approach Hillary used to push when she […]
By Andrew Korybko, One World The Biden Administration is following in the footsteps of the former Trump one by exercising hypocrisy towards unauthorized and violent protests. Both his and Trump’s condemned the violent storming of the US Capitol earlier this month, yet neither has any compunctions about endorsing […]
An interview with Bookchin from 1979. This is what real anarchism looks like, folks. I can only imagine what kind of monstrosity he would find the USA of today to be, and what a joke he would find many of today’s “anarchists” to be. By Jeff Riggenbach, Reason […]
