The alternative to the state, part 6: breaking free Reply

by Menso

The worst thing the British ever did for India was to unite it. India is a vast country of a billion people with nothing in common. As many as a million people died and 12m were displaced when India was partitioned. Today, an insurgency in the east of the country started and continues because of a central government stealing their land in the name of “development” that the people are not interested in, and 100,000 farmers have committed suicide. India has gone to war with Pakistan several times and approached nuclear war over a border clash. None of these things would have happened if India had followed Gandhi’s vision.

Are Right-Wing Anarchists the Modern Day Weather Underground? Reply

Thanks to Neil Hiatt for the link.

Take note of the comments.

weather underground

The 1960s and 70s were decades of sweeping social change. Amidst the counterculture revolution of that era, many radical socio-political groups emerged often with conflicting ideologies about a utopian society and how to achieve it.

One such counterculture group was the Weather Underground (WUO), an American radical left-wing organisation. WUO was originally formed in 1969 as a section of the Student’s for a Democratic Society (SDS).

The End of Gasoline Warfare Reply

The Archdruid Report

Last week’s discussion of American military vulnerabilities touched on one of the major issues that ought to be giving Pentagon officials sleepless nights—but only one of them The military downsides of America’s obsession with high-tech gizmos, in a world where complexity just gives the other guy more opportunities to mess with you, are no small matter, to be sure, but those downsides are taking shape in a wider context that has its own bad news to deliver to fans of US global dominance.

Fuck white nationalists. 94

[Take note of their site header & artwork.]

By Mojo

Loathe though I am to attack anyone on my blogroll, especially those who link to me, thus providing me with sweet, sweet traffic (the electronic ambrosia that all narcissists bloggers seek), the time has come for me to say a big fuck you to the white nationalists among us.

Look, I’m a contrarian. I am naturally inclined to question, to satirize, and to cynically tear down other people’s efforts – most of all whatever society, and especially the state, declares to be truth. But any unfalsifiable belief with a significant following – otherwise known as a cult – is fair game for my poison pen.

First, let’s discuss what we agree on. Let’s talk about political correctness. PC is problematic, because in establishing one unquestionable truth, alternative views are stamped out, either through state coercion or social pressure – hard or soft control over free thought and expression.

Code Pink’s Vagina Protest: Where Was the Diversity? 1

[No, this article isn’t from The Onion…]

By John Tarleton

Around the time the Iraq War began I was interviewing a community organizer in Harlem who was also active in various anti-imperialist movements. As our interview wrapped up, she began to quiz me about the white, middle class wing of the antiwar movement that had gathered around United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ). She was curious in particular about a flamboyant new group called Code Pink. Co-founded by West Coast peace activists Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans, Code Pink seemed to be everywhere, grabbing headlines with its vigils and marches and various publicity stunts.

He said that he participated during clashes on the ship and claimed to have disarmed two Israeli commandos.”

The Whooping Of The Tards Reply

By Unleash the Beef

What lovely heartfelt signs totally not handed out by the campaign.

Political party conventions. Alternatively known as The Whooping of the Tards. Fucking gross.

Like… it’s 2012. The internet is everywhere. Information is no longer controlled by the hate-filled cunts at the helm of political divide and conquer. And people still vote?

People still believe in things. They fucking believe! They struggle to articulate what they believe in, because it’s nothing more than an illusion built of key words, but oh how dullards love regurgitating them. And painting them on signs to wave in support of their own enslavement.

The Pathology of U.S. Democracy Reply

By Anthony Gregory

Electoral politics is a moral and intellectual wasteland. There is no room for anyone of principle, whatever that principle might be.

As a libertarian, I see little difference between Obama and Romney. They both favor a perpetual war on terror, an occupation of Afghanistan, military aid to Israel, indefinite detention of terror suspects, military imprisonment outside the bounds of habeas corpus, warrantless wiretapping, the TSA, the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, the FDA, the war on drugs, gun control, bailouts, Keynesian economics, income taxation, Social Security, Medicare, central banking, subsidies for rich and poor, licensing in industry, public education, employment regulation, agriculture corporatism, tariffs, and a federal budget that amounts to far more than ten thousand dollars for every man, woman, and child in this country.

Three reasons you can’t ignore the Great American Upheaval Reply

by Coley Hudgins

Neil Howe and William Strauss wrote an amazingly prescient book back in 1997 called The Fourth Turning that describes the cyclical patterns and generational archetypes all societies go through.

The archetypes described in the book are Heroes, Prophets, Artists and Nomads, and each corresponds to specific periods in societal development called “Turnings”:

  • The First Turning is a High, an upbeat era of strengthening institutions and weakening individualism, when a new civic order implants and the old values regime decays.

Political Correctness: Gag In the Mouth of America Reply

by John Waddey

Americans are being oppressed by a group of faceless, nameless tyrants. The weapon of the oppressors is “Political Correctness.” The tyrants define Political Correctness as a means of encouraging language that “is calculated to provide a minimum of offense, particularly to the racial, cultural, or other identity groups” to whom the wielders of Political Correctness have granted “victim status” and protection. In reality, Political Correctness is a scourge in the hand of the liberal establishment in America. It is used to enforce liberal ideology and conformity to the official party line of that group of intellectuals. It is controlling, stifling and oppressive and dangerous to our freedom and liberties.

Comedians and others, whose knowledge is derived primarily from television, tend to treat PC as a joke, pointing to some of the ridiculous demands its proponents make. In reality it is like a great python that has snared an unwitting creature in its coils and is slowly squeezing the life from it.

The New World Disorder Reply

By Patrick J. Buchanan

After his great victory in Desert Storm, George H.W. Bush went before the United Nations to declare the coming of a New World Order.

The Cold War was yesterday. Communism was in its death throes. The Soviet Empire had crumbled.

The Soviet Union was disintegrating. Francis Fukuyama was writing of “The End of History.” Savants trilled about the inevitable triumph of democratic capitalism.

Yet, in 2012, sectarianism, tribalism and nationalism are all resurgent, reshaping a world where U.S. power and influence are visibly receding.

Syria is sinking into a war of all against all that may end with a breakup of the nation along ethno-sectarian lines — Arab, Druze, Kurd, Sunni, Shia and Christian. Iraq descends along the same path.

A U.S. war with Iran could end with a Kurdish enclave in Iran’s northwest tied to Iraqi Kurdistan, Iran’s Azeri north drifting toward Azerbaijan, and a Balochi enclave in the south linked to Pakistan’s largest province, Balochistan, leaving Iran only Persia.

Fear of a Black President 1

[This article has been causing a bit of an uproar and has inspired Occupy Wall Street to announce: “If we do not confront, confound, and destroy white supremacy and the complex web this system of power exerts over every aspect of our lives, then we are lost. Any struggle for economic or political freedom will be in vein without a crystal clear intention of class, gender, sexuality and racial equity at the core of our values, principals and practice.”]

As a candidate, Barack Obama said we needed to reckon with race and with America’s original sin, slavery. But as our first black president, he has avoided mention of race almost entirely. In having to be “twice as good” and “half as black,” Obama reveals the false promise and double standard of integration.

The Bright Future of Post-Partisan Social Psychology Reply

Has social psychology become a Tribal Moral Community since the 1960s? Are we a community that is bound together by liberal values and then blind to any ideas or findings that threaten our sacred values? I believe the answer is yes, and I’ll make 3 points to support that claim.
