The main problem I see with this article is that no matter how silly professional “anti-racists”(many of whom are white people looking for a pat on the back) can often be, conservatives typically either believe that class does not exist, or if it does that class domination is […]
I’ve seen some leftists ridiculing this on social media with comments like “But every day is a victims of capitalism day!” as if it is a matter of either/or, or some kind of “Who’s most oppressed?” pissing contest between global victims of the state. Ilya Somin, Reason While […]
A map of the Eastern hemisphere in 50 A.D. Outside the Caesarian and Han dynasties, traditional tribes were largely independent. The ancient world provides a prototype for an anarchistic post-postmodernity, the proliferation of infinite diversity in infinite combinations.
A look at the pre-colonial Western hemisphere. Actual copies of these maps are available for sale online. They extraordinarily detailed although they are also extraordinarily expensive.
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 […]
The wrong side won. By Nicholas Longrich, The Conservation Around 600,000 years ago, humanity split in two. One group stayed in Africa, evolving into us. The other struck out overland, into Asia, then Europe, becoming Homo neanderthalensis – the Neanderthals. They weren’t our ancestors, but a sister species, […]
Anyone who knows the first thing about American history from 1607 to about 1975 knows that “our nation” has survived far, far, far worse than anything that is going on now.
My interpretation of the Civil War was that it was mostly a class war between Northern industrial bourgeois class capitalism and Southern agrarian gentry class quasi-feudalism over which form of slavery and imperialism would dominate the future expansionism of the USA. The Civil War involved both the Northern […]
How do we repeat the overthrow of the Soviet Union in the war against the global corporatocracy?
Inter-tribal warfare is really not a good plan. By Guneeta Singh Bhalla, The Diplomat “I still don’t know what happened,” remarks Ranjit Kaur toward the end of our interview. “Why did we have to move?” she softly asks, staring at me, then through me, as her voice trailed […]

By Adam Gabbatt, The Guardian In late November 2000, hundreds of mostly middle-aged male protesters, dressed in off-the-peg suits and cautious ties, descended on the Miami-Dade polling headquarters in Florida. Shouting, jostling, and punching, they demanded that a recount of ballots for the presidential election be stopped. The […]
By Ore Koren, The Conversation After Kenya’s 2007 election, as incumbent President Mwai Kibaki declared victory, the opposition alleged the election had been rigged. A wave of protests, riots and ethnic violence followed. As many as 1,500 citizens were killed and another 600,000 forcibly displaced. As the U.S. […]

This is an insult to the memory of the Holy Roman Empire. By Ryan Cooper The Week Germany is today a first-rank power: rich, strong, and efficiently governed. But just over 200 years ago, most of its current territory was a shambolic mess — part of the Holy […]
The more I study US political history in the 20th century, the more I come to the view that Antony Sutton was correct that the rise of communism and fascism internationally was made possible only with the assistance of Western capitalism. And the more I come to the […]
One of the problems with “movement conservatism” of the Buckley-Goldwater-Reagan axis was that it was never anything more than a means of providing ideological cover for the military-industrial-complex and American empire-builders, which is why the isolationists have always been the main group that has been unwelcome in “conservative” […]
By Keith Preston An Overview of Marxist Theory During the middle part of the nineteenth century, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels outlined a comprehensive theory concerning how human societies evolve over time, and the factors that shape the character of particular societies.

By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley “The most interesting political questions throughout history have been whether or not humans will be ruled or free, whether they will be responsible for their actions as individuals or left irresponsible as members of society, and whether they can live in peace by volitional agreements alone.” -Karl Hess “We’ve got to […]

From the moment I saw that Anthony Fauci was in charge of the COVID-19 response, my feeling was, “Oh, no, not this guy again.” By Sean Strub Huffington Post
This book explains how traditional nation-states that have their roots in the Treaty of Westphalia and came into full fruition in the 19th era of classical liberal are largely being absorbed into a transnational framework in which other institutions assume a hegemonic position. The “populist-nationalist” movements that have […]
The English anarchist who tried to assassinate Francisco Franco. There were actually factions on both sides of the Spanish Civil War for which I have some degree admiration, such as the anarchists on the Left and the Carlists on the Right. Although the anarchists could often be a […]
By Ben Collyer New Scientist THE emergence of state authority was a logical consequence of the move to settled agriculture, or so we thought. Until recently, we also assumed that ancient peoples welcomed the advantages of this way of life as well as the growth of state leadership, […]
This is an old document that was prepared by the California state government back in the 1950s during the height of the Cold War. It predictably contains the usual hysteria of the time but the description it provides of Marxist-Leninist organizational strategies and tactics is largely accurate. Take […]
Both Marxists and radical libertarians like Antony Sutton pointed out how Roosevelt was not a “traitor to his class” but a friend of the power elite who wished to preserve the position of the ruling class against insurgent populist, labor, farmer, socialist, communist, and fascist movements that were […]

The main problem with this article is that the US already passed through the republican phase during the colonial period and first two centuries after the revolution, and entered the imperial phase in the 20th century, with US presidents being elective monarchs that act in a managerial capacity […]
By Ilena Peng Narratively Two crosses burned in Robeson County, North Carolina, on January 13, 1958. One was outside the home of a Native American woman who was dating a white man, the other outside the home of a Native family who had moved into one of Lumberton’s […]
James Lindsay on the theology of the new theocracy. The two most important things that are happening in the developed world at the present time are the re-feudalization of class relations and the growth of totalitarian humanism as the self-legitimating ideology of the rising ruling class. Just as […]
“A Latino friend of mine pointed out today that what we are seeing in Portland is a light version of CIA operations in El Salvador, Columbia, Chile and other Latin American countries in the 70s and 80s. The US propped up dictators and organized coups. The US helped […]
I disagree that the existence of the Electoral College or the bicameral Congress is the main thing that is wrong with the current system. It is not unreasonable to have institutional mechanisms to prevent mob rule. The main problem is that, if you read the enumerated powers and […]

And there is still six more months to go! By James West Davidson History never ends. But history textbooks must. As deadlines for new editions loom, every textbook writer lurches to a sudden stop. The last chapter always ends in uncertainty: unfinished and unresolved. I’ve experienced this many […]
A somewhat interesting review of Abimael Guzman’s autobiography. For quite some time, I have held the view that the Shining Path developed what is arguable the most advanced critique of imperialism on the Marxist “far-left,” although it’s not substantially different from what anarchist anti-imperialists were saying in the […]
Some do, some don’t. Stereotypes, while sometimes rooted in fact, also contain many, many variations. My maternal grandmother’s father was Cherokee, and their family was Methodist. I’ve personally known Native Americans whose politics ranged from far-left anarchist to conservative Republican, to admiration for George Lincoln Rockwell’s American Nazi […]
By Don Fitz If you look at a US $20 bill, you might notice Andrew Jackson nervously watching statues of Columbus and Robert E. Lee coming down and wondering if his face is going to disappear from currency. As Democrats ponder which militarist they wish to glorify in […]
It’s important to remember that the modern American Empire is really just an extension of the British Empire, only the capital was moved from London to Washington. I’d argue (in fact, I think it’s indisputable) that the Anglo-American (Atlanticist) Empire is simply the Roman (Mediterranean) Empire of the […]
