Government Will Not Save You From Corporations

Journalists and political partisans have expressed the mistaken presumption that government is a “balancing force” against the excess powers of corporations. This video explains that most excess power of corporations is provided and granted by government and that government seeks partnership with corporations and shares in the profits. […]

Cleaning the Muddied Waters of Anarchy

By Will Schnack Evolution of Consent Ideologies and philosophies that go by the title “anarchism” are wide-ranging in their span. These include mutualists, individualists, collectivists, communists, capitalists, nationalists, primitivists, futurists, and more.

The Looting Machine Called Capitalism

By Paul Craig Roberts Counterpunch I have come to the conclusion that capitalism is successful primarily because it can impose the majority of the costs associated with its economic activities on outside parties and on the environment. In other words, capitalists make profits because their costs are externalized […]

The General Strike

  The centralized state apparatus maintains and enforces anti-union laws because without them, the centralized state apparatus would not exist. It is illegal for workers from one workplace to cease production in solidarity with workers from another workplace. An unified labor strike cannot be allowed to happen over […]

Funding the Enemy: War and Welfare

From March last year: Ann Sterzinger’s libertarian solution to the Islamist problem. The welfare state is a gravy train for ISIS. If the welfare state doesn’t end in Europe, the welfare state will end Europe. And future historians will look back on the way the West ended and […]

Sound Money Is Rising at the State Level

The Age of Humanism is Ending

I’d say this article is hysterical leftist paranoia. Neoliberalism and cultural leftism are friends, not enemies. The inequality of wealth that we see rising is similar to what happened during the industrial revolution when the rise of the liberal bourgeoisie paralleled the growth the proletarian class. It’s amazing […]

The Civil Society/State Dichotomy

By Chris Shaw Gramsci rightly identifies that in the modern political environment, simply recognising actors as either public or private, in the realm of states or markets respectively, is problematic.

No, they don’t, according to a study during the 2016 presidential primary season, which says lots of other Americans don’t either. The survey found 58% of millennials favor government-run socialism (statistically […]

New Class War

A must read for anyone that wants to understand present day political, cultural, and class conflict. By Daniel McCarthy The American Conservative Michael Hogue Shock gave way to relief this summer as America’s political establishment—rattled by Donald Trump’s success in winning the Republican nomination—reassured itself of his inevitable […]
