The future of the US, or the future “post-US” or the “future of the Western world” or “the future of the global order, will be rule by the techno-oligarch/new clerisy alliance, where neoliberals constitute “conservatism” and progressives/SJWs constitute “liberalism.” Everyone, including the historic WASP culture, will be a […]
For 25-30 years, I have said that the main political issues in the USA are imperialism, widening class divisions, and use of the wars on drugs, crime, and (later) terrorism to create a domestic police state. Regrettably, most of liberal and left opinion during this time has been […]
By Nathan Mattise ARS Technica AUSTIN, Texas—More than three months have passed since a warrant (PDF) initially went out for Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson’s arrest. That document detailed Wilson’s alleged sexual assault against a female “child younger than 17 years of age” whom he reportedly solicited through […]
by Jacob Mchangama Thursday, December 1, 2011 All western European countries have hate-speech laws. In 2008, the eu adopted a framework decision on “Combating Racism and Xenophobia” that obliged all member states to criminalize certain forms of hate speech. On the other side of the Atlantic, the Supreme Court […]
“It’s interesting how figures like Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez are labelled as “communists” for wanting the economic policies of the 1950s (when a third of the US labor force was unionized and the top income tax bracket was 91%), and the Trumpians/MAGA hats are considered “fascists” for wanting immigration […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley I’ve long considered myself to be a feminist, even before I realized I was trans. It’s always seemed like basic common sense to me that people shouldn’t be defined by the contents of their genitalia but by the […]
Not exactly the kind of left/right coalition I would envision, but you’ve got to crawl before you can run, I guess. By Matthew Rozsa Salon.Com In my recent interview with Tucker Carlson, he waited until nearly the end of a long conversation to drop a bomb: He might […]
Jimmie Dore has an interesting take on this.
Mr. Antifa Intellectual serves up the “Anarcho-MSNBC” line. This kind of stuff is why I started attacking anarcho-social democrats and totalitarian humanists so vehemently 20 years ago. Regrettably, a substantial tendency has developed among “anarchists” that opposes regional or localized illiberalism more than it opposes imperialism, opposes marginal […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley Washington is a fucking zoo. The entire town seems to be teeming with an almost demonic energy that’s usually reserved for Third World capitals hours before the fall of some CIA funded cannibal despot. We have had fucked […]
An interesting article from Daily Kos. I know the author of this piece, who is generally friendly to ATS. By Alex Shepard Daily Kos he election of 2020 is approaching us fast, and the primary season will be here before we know it. Already, the 2020 democratic field […]
The Stark Truth. Listen here. Robert Stark and Anatoly Karlin talk to Alt-French Unz Review blogger GUILLAUME DUROCHER about the Yellow Vest Protests, political situation in France, and National Economics. Topics: The gas tax as largely symbolic for overall populist discontent […]
The Russian Bear is the Wizard of Oz, and Putin is the man behind the curtain. The Russophilia of the far left/far right and the Russophobia of the center left/center right is pathetic. My own geopolitical outlook is more like that of the classical anarchists of the late […]
This is a pretty good discussion of Gabbard. From what I can tell, she’s basically just a moderate who trends liberal on social issues, who is pro-military, pro-Israel, and pro-terror war but who merely thinks the neocon/neoliberal foreign policy paradigm is insane (which it is), largely from her […]
The United States’ partial government shutdown drags into its fourth consecutive week as President Donald Trump and Democrats fail to settle their scores over funding a border wall. The stalemate has led to the closure of at least 25 percent of the federal operation since December 22. Air […]
The speaker of the US House of Representatives says the Democrats have a better idea to improve the country’s border security and eventually end the prolonged government shutdown. Nancy Pelosi added that it is now up to President Donald Trump to make the next move to end the […]
Neither Open nor Closed but Decentralized Borders: The Revolutionary Potential of Illegal Immigrants
An immensely important essay given the current controversies. “It seems as if the time has come to abandon terms like open and closed borders in favor of decentralized borders. We imagine a free society with decentralized borders would consist of a mixture of open borders, closed borders, public […]
US security forces have engaged with migrants at the country’s southern border with Mexico. US border patrol agents used tear gas to keep the group from approaching the crossing line. The recent deaths of two immigrant children in U-S custody have piled pressure on President Donald Trump for […]
A predictable shit show. I love political fractiousness. Virtually none of the contending factions associated with the present political/culture war paradigm have any relevance to the pan-anarchist position. All of them are groups that seek control of the state or seek to solicit favors from the state. The […]
A pro-free speech progressive vs an antifa on free speech. I am actually somewhere between these two guys. I am all for violence against the state (when tactically appropriate) but opposed to either censorship/deplatforming of mere expression of opinions or violence against other political groups that are against […]
As I have long said. This is entire thread is worth reading as it contains much interesting statistical data. Check it out here.
As I have said many times. And as Max Stirner observed, “Our atheists are very pious people.”
Will the rise of Generation Z mark the death of SJWism? Is the PC/SJW/Antifa phenomenon simply the final stage in the backlash against the “old world” that existed before the cultural revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, and which has now become status quo? It is necessary for […]
The foundation of anarchism should be a commitment to anti-authoritarian values generally, not just opposition to “right-wing authoritarianism.” Far too many anarchists are simply “conventional progressives, minus the state” and even the anti-statism of many “anarcho-social democrats” is questionable. Left-wing authoritarianism has been a plague on radical movements […]
History repeating itself as a tragedy and a farce. The principal weakness of most contemporary anarchists is their failure to recognize that any set of values can be turned toward authoritarian ends, not just conservative ones, and any kind of group can act in an authoritarian manner, not […]
This article is almost two years old but relevant to current events. Has the “far right” become the “new left” now that the Left has largely fallen down on the job? On an international level, if neoliberalism has become the standard, and if the traditional left has largely […]
US President Donald Trump says hush payments to women he allegedly had affairs with before the 2016 presidential election were legal. Trump said the payments were personal transactions and denied they were a violation of US campaign financing laws. Earlier, federal prosecutors in New York demanded a “substantial” […]
My discussion of the Trump/Russia investigation with Press TV.
This is a really interesting discussion of the James Fields case that contains a lot of important information on how the US criminal legal system works. Anyone can learn from this discussion, irrespective of political views. Listen here. ————————— This is Rebel Yell – a Southern Nationalist podcast […]
I generally hold to the obviously heterodox view that, contextually speaking, Donald Trump is the most liberal president the USA has ever had (though Barack Obama was more liberal on some social issues like the environment and transgender rights, and Jimmy Carter was more liberal on some foreign […]
An interesting M-L-M critique of the critical theory oriented “Left.” I don’t agree with his general ideology but I agree with his assessment of “identity politics” as having no real value other than to create divisiveness that will have the effect of undermining the system (“destabilizing the imperialist […]
American political conflict isn’t quite what it used to be. The American Revolution, the Civil War, the labor wars of the late 19th/early 20th century, and the racial/cultural revolution of the 1960s make today’s “polarization” and “incivility” look pretty tame in comparison. Today’s “political conflict” is Yankees vs. […]
I find it fascinating that Donald Trump, a man who personifies the perfect hybrid of 1960s/70s hedonism and 1980s/90s greed and materialism, would emerge as a conservative hero, with the religious right and social conservatives being his biggest backers. If there are any snowflakes left who still think […]
These speakers raise a lot of interesting points, even if the source obviously indicates the discussion is a bit neoconnish at times.
This is an interesting debate. A measured discussion between two serious thinkers (i.e. not an Alt-Right vs. SJW debate).
Many older people, or those familiar with Western political history in the 20th century, will remember that 1968, exactly half a century ago, was a revolutionary year in the sense of uprisings that occurred throughout the Western world (and elsewhere). A brief summary can be found here. The […]
Some interesting commentary from Tim Pool. ———————————————– Social Justice And The Far Left Are Doomed To Collapse due to internal inconsistency within itself. They advocate for the rights of groups at odds with each other and for positions that can’t be brought together. You can’t advocate for Abrahamic […]
Ann Coulter, as everyone knows, is a staunch conservative and immigration hawk. But she correctly perceives that Trump’s anti-immigration rhetoric is largely a ruse intended as raw meat to be thrown to his base. Coulter’s examination of electoral politics correctly perceives that the future belongs to the ascending […]
A Maoist explains why SJWs are not a real “Left” but a controlled opposition.
This is a pretty good debunking of the claim that there has somehow been an epidemic of extremist murders in recent times. Read the full critique here. So the actual evidence shows that some ideological extremists are also mentally unstable or sketchy people in general, who end up […]
An actual Marxist calls out the neo-McCarthyite “left.” He uses a much broader definition of fascism than I would (I generally accept the views of Stanley Payne on what historic fascism actually was), but this is an excellent commentary.
Medieval reenanctor dies after 7-foot-long lance spears his abdomen. Civil War and World War Two reenactors can apparently get pretty wild as well. By Dana Hedgpeth Washington Post A Virginia man, who was playing a Medieval knight during a reenactment performance, impaled and killed himself with his seven-foot-long […]
This is probably the best and most comprehensive set of proposals for immigration reform that I have seen to date in the sense of upholding humanitarian values, while giving due consideration to everyone’s interests. By Nathan Smith My fundamental convictions have not changed: I support open borders. And […]
A leftist writer discusses the history of leftist opposition to open borders. By Angela Nagle American Affairs Journal efore “Build the wall!” there was “Tear down this wall!” In his famous 1987 speech, Ronald Reagan demanded that the “scar” of the Berlin Wall be removed and insisted that […]
This article by Nathan Smith is the best analysis of the immigration issue that I have seen to date in terms of nuance, honesty, and depth. He argues that there would be both tremendous benefits and tremendous costs if the borders of the United States were to be […]
A discussion with the C-Realm podcast. Listen here. ————————————- KMO welcomes Keith Preston of Attack the System back to C-Realm Radio to talk about the current political and social division in the United States.
