Riot on the Hill

Another leftist take on the Capitol incident. By Mike Davis Yesterday’s ‘sacrileges’ in our temple of democracy – oh, poor defiled city on the hill, etc. – constituted an ‘insurrection’ only in the sense of dark comedy. What was essentially a big biker gang dressed as circus performers […]

The Big Takeover

A fairly interesting analysis of the split between the pigs and the “far-right” from a semi-far-left perspective. By Jarrod Shanahan, Hard Crackers On January 6th a determined mob from across the United States descended on Washington, D.C. They rumbled with police, overturned barricades, breached the perimeter of the […]

Capitol attack: the five people who died

By Kenya Evelyn, The Guardian Family members and law enforcement have confirmed more details on the now five people who died in an attempted insurrection against the United States on Wednesday, including a Capitol police officer who died from his injuries. The remaining four were among the supporters […]

Rioters Were Going to Execute the Vice President

Increasingly, the Trump diehards resemble something more like Scientology than a political movement. I started noticing back in the 90s that there was a cultural undercurrent that was combining anti-establishment politics with conspiracies, religion, the occult, pseudo-science, science fiction, pseudo-history, mythology, crank economic and legal theories, crank medicine, […]

Mob Rule in Seattle

I’ve generally found that some of the coolest reporting on extremists comes from their opponents. “Anarchist mobs rioting in Seattle!” You say that like it’s a bad thing. “Gun toting yokels march on Virginia’s capital!” And the problem is? Black Lives Matter and Antifa activists in Seattle have […]

Lebanon’s confusing civil war

Think of all the groups involved in street clashes in the US today. Three percenters, Boogaloos, Proudboys, BLM, Antifa, Marxists, “anarcho-” Marxists, militias, anti-lockdown protestors, MAGAists, SJWs, Oathkeepers, Red Guards, Redneck Revolt, Patriot Prayer, etc. Imagine all of them with weapons engaging in urban guerrilla with dozens of […]

Armed Struggle

Anarchist News/Anathema Comparisons to the worldwide uprisings of 1968 have been drawn over the last several years as we’ve seen a resurgence of revolt the world over. Finally, this year, the United States began catching up after the murder of George Floyd, followed by many more murders of […]

The Next Step

The insurrection of 2020 indicated that the lumpenproletariat is capable of directly and successfully targeting state/ruling class outposts. What will be the next step in the escalation of the armed struggle? Potentially, an escalation of the conflict from a focus on the lowest level and most immediately visible […]

Consociationalism

At some point, the US will likely have to convert to a consociational system in order to avoid complete fragmentation. In fact, I suspect the ruling class will eventually come to see such a system as a possible alternative to the dissolution of the mother country of the […]

Nonviolent revolution

The Wikipedia entry on nonviolent revolution. This is how it’s done. I wouldn’t necessarily endorse every revolution described in this, and I’m not opposed to violence as a matter of principle, but successful revolutions are those which are simply about withdrawing consent from the existing ruling class and […]
