Hear The Dick discuss his proposal for an expanded police state in this interview with Peter Schiff.
Secessionists rally in Austin. The Texas Nationalist Movement marked Texas Independence Day with a rally on Saturday at the Capitol urging Texans to save the state by seceding from the United States. A small but enthusiastic group of Texans gathered on the steps of the Capitol, as an […]
From the This Ain’t Livin’ blog. I recently re-encountered one of the more bizarrely pervasive myths about prisons when I was talking about the prison abolition movement with a friend: The idea that prisons are ‘cushy.’ This person was trying to argue that because conditions in prisons are […]
Would someone who has read Gary Chartier’s new book be willing to write a review to be published on ATS?
Jim Goad on the Fred Phelps freak show. Based on their endless words and their tireless actions, the Westboro Baptist Church seems to sincerely believe that God is punishing America for its increasing tolerance of homosexuality. They honestly seem to think that every scrawny AIDS casualty, every soldier […]
Article by Charles Glass. That there is a long way to go became clear on the night that Hosni Mubarak resigned and mobs crowded into Tahrir Square to claim credit for a revolution that others had made. (They were like those “resisters of the eleventh hour” who jammed […]
Take lessons. Rebel-held territory in Libya has again come under sustained attack from land and air, from troops loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, as unrest in Libya continues.
“I do think Keith Preston merits the title odd duck, if anyone does. That said, unlike with Gabb, you don’t generally see those two criticisms coming from the same group of people in Preston’s case. The people who bag on his NA-sympathies don’t generally also complain about his […]
Naomi Wolf thinks so. So where were these women in Tunisia and Egypt? In both countries, women protesters were nothing like the Western stereotype: they were front and centre, in news clips and on Facebook forums, and even in the leadership. In Egypt’s Tahrir Square, women volunteers, some […]
Anna Morgenstern on why the Left and Right are both failures. As far as I can tell, the two biggest social problems that we have in statist society are War and Poverty. And true to form, they are rarely directly addressed. In truth, there is very little sentiment […]
This some rather surreal stuff.
Whether it’s the seat belt Nazis or the tobacco prohibitionists, the therapeutic police keeps moving right along. Meanwhile, the PC police set Charlie Sheen in their sites. A good piece on the Sheen affair by one of my favorite libertarian writers, Anthony Gregory.
Daniel McCarthy on the neoconservatives Jacobinism. …what the neoconservatives mean by democracy, and what their critics know they mean, is not one man, one vote. It’s not procedural democracy but a substantive democracy: a democracy that entails an American-style mixed-market economy (“democratic capitalism”), liberal institutions of civil society […]
Excellent documentary from the late 70s/early 80s on how the state contributes to black poverty. Featuring Dr. Walter Williams. Watch it on Youtube. This is a quite a find. Hat tip to Miles Joyner for digging it up.
Wow! An article about Kropotkin at the Mises Institute. A little more than 90 years ago, on February 8, 1921, Peter Kropotkin died in Dmitrov, then a small town in Russia, about 40 miles north of Moscow. He had been born in Moscow itself almost exactly 78 years […]
Why civilization needs it deviants.
Are whites racially oppressed? A growing movement says yes. Read all about it. For some time, I have predicted that as supposed spokesmen for traditional out-groups become more powerful, and as PC becomes more firmly rooted in institutions, the members of traditional in-groups turned out-groups will begin to […]
Interesting article by Swedish nationalist Rafael Koski. The main speaker of the evening was the Croatian-American ”New Rightist” Tomislav Sunic. He talked of his Croatian and other identities, and how he would prefer an explicitly racialist identity as a White European. He acknowledged, though, that as long as […]
It’s the first state to do so. This is how I envision the revolution actually happening. If I’m correct that the liberal-Left is going to dominate U.S. national politics for the next few decades, then more and more “red states” will likely adopt such actions, and hopefully “blue […]
Glenn Greenwald on the state’s efforts to kill the solider who exposed U.S. war crimes. The U.S. Army yesterday announced that it has filed 22 additional charges against Bradley Manning, the Private accused of being the source for hundreds of thousands of documents (as well as this still-striking […]
Not exactly. Kevin Carson explains why. Although (by strong implication, anyway) Paul & Co. frame the issue as the shiftless majority voting themselves loot at the expense of the hardworking rich, what’s really happening is that the rich who control the state are smart enough to understand what […]
David D’Amato on why the regulatory state serves the alliance of state and capital. Big Business, we are frequently advised, is the enemy of our natural biosphere, forever seeking new ways to sidestep its responsibilities to the environment and to dirty it at will. This assumption is, in […]
A new interview with Professor Noam. Chomsky: I think that more can be done, what is happening is already pretty awful and that could lead to a really major bloodbath. Information is pretty sparse but at least the eastern province appears to be substantially under control by the […]
Listen to the interview. Tom’s guests are Alex Kurtagic, founder of publisher Wermod and Wermod, a novelist, and author of the dystopian novel Mister and Richard Spencer, the executive editor and founder of website magazine Alternative Right, also author of numerous literary essays. The main focus of their […]
Hilarious. Alex on Charlie Sheen: “He didn’t kill a million people in Iraq!” Well said, Alex.
Awesome! We need much more of this. If liberal counties would start seceding from red states, and conservative counties would start seceding from blue states, we’d be well on our way to anarcho-pluralism. Read the article. Who Else Should Secede? Since we’re on the subject of secession based […]
From The Old Urbanist. When valuable city land is left open and vacant by an absentee owner, enterprising individuals may enter and create functional living spaces, start-up businesses and entire self-governing communities on their own initiative. This process of emergent organization, derided as anarchic by detractors (see video), in fact […]
Read the article.
Hear his interview with Scott Horton. Eric Margolis, foreign correspondent and author of War at the Top of the World and American Raj, discusses his interview with the “eccentric” Col. Gaddafi during the Reagan administration; the Western media’s exaggeration of Libyan violence, which provides a pretext for US […]
Fuck schools. Period. Sign the petition here. Isn’t the war between homophobes and homo-totalitarians interesting?
Robert Wenzel on Walter Block’s predictably maverick take on the battle of Wisconsin. Read Block’s original essay here.
Why the Gods Are Not Winning This article gives the raw data indicating the degree to which religious belief has declined worldwide over the past century. The authors also explain why religious conservatism is losing ground even in the most religious of industrialized nations, the United States. These […]
Jack Ross on the Iranian opposition. During the recent upheavals across the Greater Middle East, the various iterations of the neoconservative line—the optimistic pro-democracy, the paranoid Islamophobic, or the brazen combination of both—have all tended to share a single major fallacy: that the opposition movement in Iran, the […]
Alex Jones makes the Rolling Stone.
Kevin Carson offers his perspective, and makes more or less the same arguments that I do. So while I object to government employment in principle, I’m uneasy about the standard libertarian framing of the issue with rank-and-file government workers as the villains and Walker as the good guy. […]
This is good stuff. Thanks to NATA-NY for digging this article up. Established in 2003, the anarchists are young Israelis, mostly in their 20s, who work closely with the Palestinian popular village committees to resist Israel’s occupation. They have no official leaders, no office and no paid staff, […]
A review by Brett Stevens. This book has recently been translated into English and I received a complimentary copy for review from the publisher. My own review/critique of this work of De Benoist’s should be forthcoming fairly soon.
by Chris Hellman http://www.amconmag.com/blog/the-real-u-s-national-security-budget/ What if you went to a restaurant and found it rather pricey? Still, you ordered your meal and, when done, picked up the check only to discover that it was almost twice the menu price. Welcome to the world of the real U.S. national security […]
Justin Raimondo takes down the latest neoconservative lunacy. H. L. Mencken had it right when he wrote: “It is hard for the plain people to think about a thing, but easy for them to feel. Error, to hold their attention, must be visualized as a villain, and the […]
Lew Rockwell interviews Eric Margolis. No candidate opposed to the US occupation is permitted to run in Iraqi or Afghan elections. It will be the same in Egypt and Libya if the US gets its way. Soviet-style rigged elections make a mockery of the occupied peoples’ desire for […]
Jim Goad’s hilarious takedown of the paranoid Left. I make it a general rule never to trust even one-half of a word that any politician says, whether it’s left, right, up, down, North, South, and even some parts of Philly. I’ve never been good at team sports, and […]
Eric Margolis on the demise of Gadaffi. Gadaffi is a sad example of the maxim about absolute power corrupting absolutely. People like me who relish political theater of the absurd will miss the “Leader;” but most of his people, I suspect, will not. While Gadaffi prepares for his […]
Read all about it. “What you are looking at in Tunisia, in Egypt … Libya, in Bahrain … what you see happening there … you’d better prepare because it will be coming to your door,” Farrakhan said in a booming voice, thousands of followers cheering in his wake. […]
http://www.kstatecollegian.com/opinion/government-should-not-control-internet-access-1.2501245 by Ian Huyett In the event of a national emergency, the president should be able to shut off access to the Internet for our safety. Yeah, it doesn’t make sense to me either. But that seems to be the argument behind S.3480, the Protecting Cyberspace as a […]
Matthew Roberts explains why the future of Christianity will be in the Third World rather than in the West. Although Third World Christianity at present may be ethnocentric, some people hope it will eventually become more universalist (ie, more liberal), as Western Christianity has become. But there is […]
Thomas Naylor of the Second Vermont Republic reviews Daniel Miller’s Line in the Sand. Read the full review.
Alex Kurtagic on the totalitarian humanist-commie regime to our north.
Watch the video. And support Vincent Bugliosi’s efforts.
Watch the interview. In 1992, Jim Gray, a conservative judge in conservative Orange County, California, held a press conference during which he recommended that we rethink our drug laws. Back then, it took a great deal of courage to suggest that the war on drugs was a failed […]
Paul Gottfried on the theocratic institutions of our time. The student posted an anonymous note including a shockingly abusive fact. Matzeliger, it seems, was being honored on Thomas Edison’s birthday. The note implied it might be inappropriate to lavish attention on Matzeliger while ignoring a much more famous […]
