Which Model of Pan-Secession is Best?

My guess is that the constituents for pan-secession will include conservatives who do not feel they can ever win under the current system but do not want to go down the road of overt authoritarianism, liberals and leftists who have a “better off without them” attitude toward conservatives, […]

How Trump RUINS GOP, Democratic Party

Trump may well turn out to be the best friend proponents of pan-secession ever had by escalating fragmentation and advancing sympathy for pan-secession. Saagar analyzes the negative effects Trump’s presence is having on the GOP, Democratic Party, and the broader political debates taking place in America and on […]

How Pan is your Pan-Secessionism?

This post from Anarchist News (and the discussion thread that follows) from a few months back is worth checking out. It is illustrative of something that I have been thinking would eventually happen in the “left” anarchist milieu. While many left-anarchists are clearly oriented toward the Maoist-influenced Antifa, […]

Operational Anarchism?

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 […]

The New Secession Movement

The next thing that needs to happen in order to advance pan-secessionism is not only for more active on the ground movements to develop but also for a national leader to emerge that calls for macro-level pan-secessionism on a meta-level. By Steven Malanga City Journal A new poll […]

The Boogaloo movement has a new strategy

These guys appear to be an actual on-the-ground, pan-anarchist, pan-secessionist movement. And whether left-wing anarchists like these guys or not, left-wing anarchists who are developing mutual aid networks of their own or creating separatist movements like CHAZ are in the club as well. I suspect that as pan-secessionist […]

Subversive: An Interview with Keith Preston

This is an interview I recently gave to a journalist who is writing a book on political undercurrents in the U.S. Can you tell me a little bit about the American Revolutionary Vanguard and what it stands for? American Revolutionary Vanguard was founded in the late 1990s by […]

Revolution from the Bottom Up

When I was an orthodox left-wing anarchist, one of the things that eventually led to my present heterodox positions was the observation that every leftist revolution in which anarchists participated led to the repression of the anarchists by authoritarian leftists, or by right-wing reactionaries who managed to gain […]

We’re Getting a Lot Closer

When I started ATS 20 years ago, the main objective I wanted to promote was to end US imperialism by dissolving the United States itself, a goal I had originally embraced in the 1980s. Initially, I had thought anarcho-syndicalism would be the vehicle but being involved with actual […]

As It Should Be…

I first started developing the ideas that I would later come to call “pan-secessionism in the mid-1990s after notice the emergence of the “right-wing” antigovernment movement associated with the militias, sovereign citizens, tax protestors, and other similar groups. Of course, much of the left and certainly liberal opinion […]

Are Startup Societies the Way Forward?

An interesting conference on startup societies is coming up next month at Georgetown University. Get the details here. Startup societies may be a way to develop the infrastructure that is needed for a broader pan-secessionist action against central governments and the global corporatocracy. Anarchist and other radical organizations […]

The Alt-Right is Gay

One thing about European New Right philosophy that I think is right is that America is a completely separate culture and civilization from Europe even if it is a derivative in many ways. Interestingly, North American New Righters try to be more European culturally and intellectually even if […]

Scotland: Secession Vs Pan Secession

A lot of people interested in the concept of pan-secessionism have been excited about the growing wave of secessionist movements in Europe.  However the bad news is I would suggest that those secession movements, while positive developments, do not really represent an adoption of pan secessionist values.  An […]
