Shades of the anarchist revolution in Spain. Although nowadays most Canadians are about as religious as the Western Europeans or the East Asians, i.e. not religious at all. VANCOUVER — Two more Catholic churches on First Nations reserve land in B.C. have burned to the ground. The churches, […]
BBC Two more Catholic churches burned down in indigenous communities in western Canada early on Saturday. The fires at St Ann’s Church and the Chopaka Church began within an hour of each other in British Columbia. Officers said both buildings were completely destroyed, and they were treating the […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley Surfing through the news, it seems like every other motherfucker and his brother is flipping their proverbial wig over the supposedly literal threat China poses to the future of western civilization. Over on the center-right of what passes […]
He was a leading figure in the anti-Vietnam War movement. I consider the success of that movement to be arguably the most important movement in the history of the United States, and possibly more important than either the American Revolution or the Civil War. If there had been […]
A debate on CRT from about six months ago. Critical race theory, as both an analytical framework and a movement, is pulling hard at the strands of racism that are supposedly woven into the very fabric of America. For critical race theorists, injustices are ubiquitous, entrenched in every […]
The scenario described in this story is not particularly analogous to where we are today. Political conflict in the 1930s was genuinely class-based. Class conflict exists today and continues to increase, but it is tertiary in relation to the intra-elite conflict (see Pareto on elites and counter-elites) pitting […]
This is a pretty interesting report from the National Intelligence Council. Read the full document here. There is more discussion of non-state actors from Beau below:
The predictions he outlines in this are fairly consistent with my own, particularly the role of non-state actors that he describes, which is a fundamental aspect of fourth-generation warfare theory.
As one whose lifelong goal has been to end US imperialism, I’m all for Republican secession (or Democratic secession or something else secession). By Crawford Kilian, The Tyee Republicans are waging slow-rolling secession, state by state. Tactic: Cancel history. The Republican party, and the U.S. media, have been […]
One thing I’ve increasingly noticed over time is that race is not necessarily a dividing line or accurate indicator of what a person’s views on racial politics will be. Research indicates that white liberals and leftists are to the left of the “average” black opinion on race issues. […]
As a non-Texan, I’d say the Texans can do whatever they want. Besides, given the option, I’d prefer to live in Mexico rather than Texas anyway.
This is a pretty good discussion of the problematic aspects of the “cold dead fingers” types who cite Vietnam as a model for insurrection in the US. Beau is absolutely correct that the Viet Cong won only because they took over a million casualties in a war of […]
The main danger from the right is a revanchism led by a figure who is actually competent and capable of uniting the neocons/Reaganites/supply-siders and the populists/Trumpists/nationalists. An intra-Republican civil war between various egomaniacs and their followers would be the best possible outcome.
“Violent extremist citizens” believe any of the following: We deliberately exceed our Constitutional authority. 2. “Corporate globalization” is harmful to society. 3. A totalitarian society is the endgame for us. The full report is available from the link below: fbi.gov/file-repository/fbi-dhs-domestic-terrorism-strategic-report.pdf
By Anthony Ince This paper applies an anarchist approach to ongoing debates on the politics, nature and function of territory. Recent work in geography has problematized dominant modes of territory, but has stopped short of a systematic critique of how statist spatial imaginations and practices reproduce and perpetuate […]
By Neil MacFarquhar New York Times ASHEVILLE, N.C. — As protests surged across the country last year over the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police, Officer Lindsay C. Rose in Asheville, N.C., found her world capsized. Various friends and relatives had stopped speaking […]

The partisan conflict is merely a symptom of a wider existential conflict. Senior Fellow at Political Reform program at New America, Lee Drutman, discusses the failures of the two-party system.
The source for this piece is a bit sketchy but it’s an interesting illustration of why I do not think race/ethnicity (or social class) is the primary dividing line in present-day US tribal/sectarian conflict. By Chloee Cooper and Daryle Lamont Jenkins, Political Research Associates August 4, 2018, the […]
One for the Millennial Left.
In the latest Right Now, your hosts speak to George Packer, a writer at the Atlantic and author of Last Best Hope: American in Crisis and Renewal, about America’s four tribes and ideological polarization. In the intro segment, Lina Khan confirmed as FTC chair and a look at […]
By Glenn Greenwald The overarching ideology of Pentagon officials is larger military budgets and ongoing permanent war posture. Their new war target, explicitly, is domestic “white rage.” For two hundred forty years, American generals have not exactly been defined by adamant public advocacy for left-wing cultural dogma. Yet […]
This makes for an interesting comparison/contrast. James Lindsay offers a highly negative critique of critical race theory in this interview with Tom Woods, while the meme below offers a more sympathetic explanation/interpretation. James Lindsay joins Tom Woods to discuss what Critical Race Theory is, what its flaws are, […]
By David Shield CBC Father Stefano Penna says he understands the anger Indigenous people are feeling WARNING: This story contains distressing details. The doors of a Roman Catholic cathedral in downtown Saskatoon were splattered with paint Thursday afternoon after the discovery of hundreds of unmarked graves at the […]
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is sentenced to 22 and a half years for the murder of George Floyd. Chauvin was convicted on April 20 of second-degree unintentional murder, second degree manslaughter and third-degree murder in the 2020 death of George Floyd.
So I guess the lesson is don’t commit a crime while someone is video recording what you are doing. Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin will be sentenced for the murder of George Floyd on June 25. A Minneapolis jury convicted Chauvin of murder and manslaughter in April, […]
Former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin has been sentenced to 22.5 years in prison for the murder of George Floyd
Before a judge sentenced him to 22 and 1/2 years in prison for the murder of George Floyd, former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin made a brief statement in court. CBS News legal analyst Rikki Klieman called his comments “bizarre.”
At Derek Chauvin’s trial, his lawyer gave a statement asking the judge to consider all the circumstances before making a decision.
Recently, I posted the following comments on social media in response to the Confederate flag/monuments ongoing controversy: But what is the American flag to people all over the world who have been conquered, subjugated, killed, maimed, impoverished, etc. by Americans? The fixation on the Confederacy seems to be […]

Founder of The Daily Poster, David Sirota, discusses the challenges of independent media.
Some of Dave’s interviews have been interesting. I used to like his show. But over time he’s just become a Republican brown noser. He reminds me of a less intelligent version of the Communist intellectuals from the 20th century who would do a “God That Failed” about-face and […]
By Jim Donaghey Robin Ballinger argues that ‘[m]usic is neither transcendental nor trivial, but inhabits a site where hegemonic processes are contested’ (in Sakolsky and Ho (eds.), 1995: 14) – in other words, music matters. However, music (and culture more widely) is often viewed as being of minor […]
Matt’s opinion is Trump basically broke TYT’s brain, but….let’s be honest, TYT has been broken for a very, very long time. Long before Trump. Warning signs have been there years before 2016.
