A somewhat interesting interview with a leading black conservative. I would be inclined to argue that, at present, substantial sectors of the capitalist class (including some major capitalist entities) along with their allies in the new clerisy/new class that dominates the “ideas industries” are fueling anti-racism hysteria in […]
By Stratton J. Davis Ever since the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) was created in Seattle, it has been a prominent subject of discussion for many. The question usually being discussed is whether we should support it or not. While those on the left seem to be in […]
Some more intentional community locations? Daily Mail The world has left an awful lot behind – as these haunting images of decaying industry from all four corners of the globe reveal. They feature in new book ‘Abandoned Industrial Places’, by David Ross, which contains more than 200 photos […]
If recent events are a foreshadowing of events to come, which they may well be, it would seem that the lumpenproletariat faces five primary dangers when it comes to future revolutionary activity.
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 […]
Now, that’s what I’m talking about. Lumpenproletarian class solidarity. But why are they not demanding the release of ALL prisoners? By Barnini Chakraborty | Fox News Protesters on Tuesday night gathered outside the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta demanding the release of the woman accused of setting fire […]
Crimethinc In this essay, anarchists from a rural area of the United States describe how people who live outside the urban centers can contribute to the movement against police violence and institutional white supremacy that has unfolded in response to the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The […]
From 2017. The main disagreement I always had with the Black Panthers was not that they were “too radical” or “too terroristic.” Those were the things I liked about the Panthers. The problem I saw with them was their Marxist-Leninist orientation. The main problem I see with BLM […]
Krystal and Saagar discuss breaking developments from the protests in Washington D.C. and Seattle’s CHAZ.
Another spot for an intentional community? By Anna Hilders Road Trippers The National Park Service established the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 1934. But the park’s rich history and culture were brewing in the hills long before that. You can still experience that special past for yourself. […]
These would be some awesome locations for future intentional communities or startup societies. By Lia Ryerson and Frank Olito When you think of theme parks, your mind probably goes straight to the modern rides of Disney World, but there are some amusement parks around the country that have […]
This is what “defunding the police” really looks like. We need an America of 20,000 Cherans. Cherán is a town of some 20,000 inhabitants in the highlands of Michoacán, one of the Mexican states that’s suffered most in the drug wars of the last decade. Armed men and […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley One thing that has become crystal fucking clear to any sane sentient creature with a pulse who has paid attention to current events over the last month is the fact that America’s cherished fascist institution known as the […]
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 […]
Kyle is merely criticizing standard right-wing dumbassery in much of this, but one of the most important points he raises is that evidence shows that a majority of the US public still opposes removing Confederate monuments, and super-majority opposes removing historic American monuments. When leftist revolutions fail, and […]
These might be some interesting locations for future intentional communities as well. By Sarah Jacobs, Libertina Brandt Business Insider In March 2017, Business Insider reported a series of stories on “The Death of Suburbia,” declaring the end of the suburbs as we once knew them. By examining the […]
Think of it as an Afrikaner-bolo. An elderly couple stuck with an unfinished home are helped by the community in Orania.
These might make for some interesting locations for crowd-funded intentional communities. Abi Harman Love Money As far as social distancing goes, it doesn’t get much better than moving to your own private town. From picture-postcard Swedish villages to American ghost towns frozen in time, these unique settlements are […]
Shane Burley is no more an unbiased reporter on CHAZ than Tucker Carlson. But it’s interesting to get a range of perspectives. By Shane Burley ROAR Magazine
By Ricky “I am gonna be focusing on what I think needs to be a rallying cry. We can’t just think violence is gonna start society anew. With that, I think; the message should be on people focusing on: Self-reliance and in if you are incapable for whatever […]
A reflection on the problem of interclass and intra-lumpen proletarian conflict. Many positive things have happened in the uprising. These include the mass participation of normies and civilians (non-revolutionaries) in protests and civil disobedience against the state, along with direct attacks on the state such as the destruction […]
Far Leftists Enact Racial Segregation At “The CHAZ” In Seattle, Right Wing Groups Rise Up Over Riots
Far Leftists Enact Racial Segregation At “The CHAZ” In Seattle, Right Wing Groups Rise Up Over Riots. One plot of land has been segregated for Black and Indigenous people only.
They’re doing this with the acquiescence of the Mexican President, just as CHAZ is existing with the apparent acquiescence of local and state governments of Seattle and Washington, which raises some interesting questions about anarchist strategy. Mexico News Daily The Zapatistas are on the move in Chiapas, extending […]
If these FOX News reactionaries were as “anti-establishment” or “anti-big government” as they pretend they would be creating “autonomous zones” of their own. What a shame they’re really just mouthpieces for the right-wing of the ruling class.
If only it were true. Roadblocks, checkpoints, barricades, armed vigilantes: Anyone with a functioning brain knows this is unacceptable.
Indeed it is. But not in the way that Carlson means. This is hilarious. During the heydey of the militia movement of the 1990s, there were “freemen” and “sovereign citizen” groups that did stuff like this.
By Stratton J. Davis Looking at the daily news these past couples of weeks one may have the pessimistic opinion that what was left of liberty will soon be gone. Even before the recent riots, which has President Trump and his GOP goons threatening the US people with […]
By Evan Bush Seattle Times Welcome to the CHAZ, the newly named Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, where most everything was free Tuesday.
Carlson has a predictably “reactionary” take on Seattle, but this is still funny as hell, particularly the part about borders. I’d like to see people of all ideologies doing this, i.e. creating their own TAZs. Say hello to the latest addition to the global family of nations: the […]
I totally disagree with Laura here, but not for the usual reasons. So far I have actually seen very little “canceling America” going on in the present uprising. Unlike Berkeley or Charlottesville, which were low-grade sports riots carried out by rookie-league middle-class gangs, the present uprising is a […]
Thank goodness Donald Trump is President, a figure that is widely hated, disliked, or disdained by all but a relatively small number of hard-core supporters. He’s an easy figure to hate, especially for the Left, and symbolizes ruling class excess. It would suck if during the present moment […]
There are three basic tasks in front of the insurgents: Overthrowing the system, prevention of the erection of a new tyranny, and preventing inter-tribal warfare. This is how it’s done. We need tens of thousands of Seattles to become thousands of Cherans, followed by a Romania 1989 situation, […]
Two, three, many Seattles. By Al Janavel Q13FOX SEATTLE – Protesters took over streets in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood now that Seattle Police has abandoned its East Precinct.
Kshama Sawant is a Trotskyist, but I have no problem with her leading the “revolution” in Seattle. As far I’m concerned, Seattle can be a commie city-state if that’s what people there want to do, just like Portland or Eugene can be an Antifa city-state. And Tyler, Texas […]
This kind of stuff may be a psychological victory for some people, but at the cost of alienating rural southern whites and Italian-Americans, many of whom have had plenty of run-ins with cops or the state. Think strategically, folks. Pushing inter-tribal warfare is a bad idea. If people […]
Police have retreated from Seattle’s East Precinct and protesters have established an autonomous zone in the neighborhood. Following Monday’s retreat of police and national guard, protesters have begun erecting barricades after a week-long blockade of the East Precinct. Read more about it at Capitol Hill Seattle Blog.
Brian Bean Rampart Mag Today marks two weeks since George Floyd was murdered by the Minneapolis police and two weeks of revolt that spread into a nation-wide and ongoing American uprising against policing and anti-Black racism. As flames engulfed buildings and cruisers were destroyed alongside police precincts, some […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley It always ends this way, you can almost set your watch to it. A glamorous soirée rambling into the wee hours of the morning in an opulent townhouse on a tony tree lined street of any given international […]
Not bad. This is straight out of the Maoist tactical guerrilla playbook.
The main critique I would have of the liberal/left/BLM approach is not that their perspective is “too radical” but that it is not radical enough. Much of this kind of activism is focused solely on police killings and the racial disparities involved. Fair enough. Murder by cop is […]
Black Lives Matter leader declares war on police and group is ‘training our people to defend our communities’ in Black Panther style armed ‘patrols’
By Ryan Parry Daily Mail A Black Lives Matter leader has declared war on the police and plans to release a blueprint for change that involves Black Panther style armed ‘patrols’ monitoring the behavior of officers on the streets, DailyMailTV can reveal.
Regrettably, wars produce casualties. The present situation is not yet a conventional civil war, but it is more than simply a series of riots or a crime wave. It is a genuine insurrection, albeit one that is largely spontaneous, decentralized, and uncoordinated which is both an advantage and […]
I am sometimes asked how I, as a radical-anarchist-extremist, can have a parallel interest in conservative or right-wing thought. But I simply utilize “conservative thought” as a supplemental means of correcting the limitations of “radical thought.” Here is an illustration: A correspondent offers what is essentially a Burkean […]
The eco-villagers, exitarians, panarchists, radical anc-aps/agorists, national-anarchists, bolobolo fans, democratic confederalists, startuppers, intentional communards, neo-tribalists, PLEers, SEZers, crypto-anarchists, seasteaders, smart citiers, new urbanists, micronationalists, and Benedict optionists all have some interesting ideas that might fit under the paradigm of pan-anarchism, from far left to far right, and spanning […]
Direct action wins again. By Leila Fadel NPR Cesia Baires knocks on the three apartment doors above her restaurant and a neighboring taqueria just before curfew. A woman opens the door. Her two young children are inside. “Remember,” she says to them in Spanish. “Same thing as yesterday. […]
These kinds of things happen during uprisings. Here in Richmond, there was been a predictable wave of vandalism against Confederate monuments. I don’t think these kinds of actions are a good idea. Attacking and destroying the monuments, flags, places of worship or veneration, temples, sacred books and artifacts, […]
Good work. This guy would have been sitting duck. Not only would another pointless murder have occurred, but the political/racial antagonisms would have intensified. This officer got separated from other officers and this group of protestors created a human shield to protect him.
