My thoughts on the “trade war” with China. Watch here. This week US president Donald Trump declared a national emergency over IT threats. Trumps long awaited executive order forbids U.S. companies from purchasing telecommunications equipment manufactured by firms posing a “national security risk”.
I really doubt that a President Hillary Clinton would have been any less aggressive when it comes to Iran or Venezuela. She has been rhetorically belligerent against Iran, voted for the Iraq war when she was in the Senate and was the architect of the Libyan war, US […]

A lot of people on the liberal/left end of the spectrum have to psychologically assume the role of the “permanent victim” because their whole worldview involves fighting “oppression” or “social injustice” so there always has to be oppression or social injustice for them to fight. Therefore, 11 white […]

By Dr. Hawzhin Azeez No longer the Kurdish Question, but the Kurdish Alternative – Hawzhin Azeez It is either a fallacy, or a pure symbolic violence, to continue to assume the “Kurdish Question” as unresolved.

A reader writes: “Very thought-provoking posts today, Keith (and great talk with Antony from the other day, on the state as aberration). I agree that it’s a shame how wide the gap is between lefty anarchists and an-caps (and each camp’s fellow travelers). My feeling is a lot […]
An interesting take on First World/bourgeois identity politics. This is more or less my long-held position on these questions as well.
A great takedown of victimology and the oppression olympics, Left and Right.
Ron Paul sounds almost like a left-anarchist is this and Noam Chomsky sounds almost like an an-cap. It’s a shame the gap between an-coms and an-caps is so vast when we agree 90% of the time.
A great takedown of the old guard Communist parties AND the First World Left by Unruhe. The one thing I disagree with Unruhe on is that I don’t consider the old guard Commies to be moving toward fascism, much less “third positionism,” but toward bourgeois nationalism (in fact, […]
