This is an interesting article that, I think, illustrates both the strengths and limitations of modern “conservative” critiques of the new ruling class. Angelo Codevilla’s theory was half-right. “Some scholars such as Charles Murray and political commentators such as Ben Shapiro and Tucker Carlson have come to use […]
By Matt Taibbi The press tries and fails to hype a crisis into existence over Dave Chappelle’s new Netflix special. First, there were the numbers. Over the course of the last week, news commentators predicted a huge demonstration of Netflix employees in protest of comedian Dave Chappelle’s The […]
Apparently, there is now some loser do-gooder group calling itself “Alcohol Justice.” It looks like progressives are going back to their prohibitionist roots. In the Progressive Era, alcohol/drug prohibition was just as much a progressive-liberal project as it was a conservative-religious one. Progressives also have a bad habit […]
Consent Factory So, the Great New Normal Purge has begun … right on cue, right by the numbers. As we “paranoid conspiracy theorists” have been warning would happen for the past 18 months, people who refuse to convert to the new official ideology are now being segregated, stripped […]
By Joe Allen, The Federalist Transhumanism is a futuristic religion that exalts technology as the highest power. The movement’s goal is to merge man with machine. Their wildest prophecies seem ridiculous at first, until you consider the dizzying advances in bionics, robotics, neuroprosthetics, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and […]
Robby Soave details two new victims of cancel culture on U.S. college campuses, and why their stories are a warning of what may come to be.
As one who grew up in the world of the 70s and 80s when characters like Rev. Donald Wildmon were trying to organize boycotts of drug store chains for selling Penthouse magazine, I never thought I’d see the day when comedians were being boycotted for being “transphobic.” Back […]
I started noticing this trend 30 years ago. By Paul Kingsworth, Unherd The Green movement will become an all-consuming empire. The numbers were in, and everybody could see what was coming: at least ten billion human souls by the end of the century. All of us clamouring for […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit It’s official, dearest motherfuckers, cancel culture kills and it’s first murder victim was another transwoman.

“I have often been called a Nazi, and, although it is unfair, I don’t let it bother me. I don’t let it bother me for one simple reason. No one has ever had a fantasy about being tied to a bed and sexually ravished by someone dressed as […]
By Joshua Rhett Miller Comedian Dave Chappelle railed against cancel culture, Twitter and left-leaning news outlets Thursday amid controversy over his latest Netflix special, “The Closer” — telling a star-studded, sold-out crowd in Los Angeles that, “If this is what being canceled is about, I love it.” “I […]
By David S. Wills, Quillette Almost from its inception, the Beat Generation seemed to be doomed to failure. In and around Columbia University, a ragtag group of bohemians coalesced based upon an odd array of mutual interests. Two of them were homosexuals, one bisexual, and all were interested […]

By Vivek Ramaswamy In one of my favorite episodes of South Park, two sleazy salesmen try to sell shoddy vacation condos in the glitzy ski town of “Asspen” to the lower middle-class residents of South Park. Their sales pitch is simple: “Try saying it, ‘I’ve got a little […]
By Francis P. Sempa American Spectator Parameters is the quarterly publication of the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Earlier this year on the Real Clear Defense website, I wrote an article celebrating the 50th anniversary of Parameters. I praised the journal and its editors for publishing […]
Tom Woods Show You know the usual approach: apologize, beg for mercy, explain that you didn’t really mean it, that you’ve “grown” — we’re all drearily familiar with the usual pathetic attempts to avoid judgment from lunatics. It never works. It never, ever works. Life is going to […]
Probably the main reason that I frequently butt heads with the left-anarchists is that I do not necessarily believe that the universalization of “wokeism” is the priority issue or even something that needs to happen at all. I tend to view “woke anarchism” the same way I might […]
Report: 74% of professors targeted for unpopular speech or research end up punished by administrators

By Andrew Sullivan Some small signs of hope for liberal society. An unlikely thing happened to me on my two weeks’ off. I watched an HBO Max miniseries that mocked some aspects of wokeness. Mike White’s “The White Lotus” is a tragicomic exposé of our current moneyed elites […]
When I founded Attack the System over 20 years ago, my objective was to lay the blueprint for an insurgent anarchist movement in North America that could eventually take down the US regime and ruling class, in solidarity with those under attack by US imperialism in each of […]
By Jack Phillips Epoch Times Portland State University professor Peter Boghossian said he’s resigned from his position in an open letter and accused the college administration of creating an environment that imperils dissent. “I never once believed—nor do I now—that the purpose of instruction was to lead my […]

Krystal and Saagar talk with author and historian Thomas Frank about liberal smears of working class Americans and the idea of a populist movement in the age of covid
By Yves Smith A couple of years ago, when Lambert would talk about professional pundits and official Democratic spokescritters behaving as if they were trying to stoke civil war in the US, I thought he’d been spending too much time on Twitter and might benefit from a dose […]
By Matt Taibbi When Rachel Maddow, Rolling Stone, and others jumped on a dubious report of ivermectin overdoses, it was just the latest in a string of moral mania mishaps. Citing a report of Oklahoma emergency rooms so overwhelmed by ivermectin overdoses that gunshot victims were going untreated, […]
By Brendan Patrick Purdy A vision is a pre-analytic, cognitive act that is a human’s sense of how the world works. While visions themselves are subjective, the theories that spring from them can be evaluated objectively. Thomas Sowell’s informal trilogy of A Conflict of Visions, The Vision of […]
From a thread on a social media page. This nails it. The only qualification might be that I don’t know that “liberal” is really the right word for it, and terms like “cultural Marxist” are even more off base. I’d say “progressive” in the historic American sense is […]
Social Justice, Inc. Team Rising discusses the role of corporations in issues of social, racial, and economic justice.
Saagar and guest host Marshall Kosloff are joined by author Vivek Ramaswamy to discuss the problems with woke capital and why the left and right should be concerned.
When I was growing up in the 70s and 80s, liberals were often lambasted by conservatives as being defenders of the right to burn the flag, say bad words in rock/pop/rap songs, publish pornographic magazines, or even hold Nazi/Communist public rallies. Nowadays, it seems liberals have gained enough […]
By William S. Lind, Traditional Right By “Mars Ascendant,” I do not mean the little green men who pole their gondolas along the planet’s peaceful canals are about to invade and conquer earth. I refer to a different Mars, Mars the god of war. I think he is […]

Derrick Jensen, Todd Lewis, and I discuss the increasing instability and erratic nature of the modern left.
By David Rovics, Counterpunch I’m realizing that most people who come across something I wrote don’t seem to have read anything else I’ve ever written, and haven’t listened to my music. This post is going to be especially personal, so it’s important that you have some idea who […]
Saagar expresses his doubts about the recent YouTube decision to ban Sky News Australia for its covid coverage.
Exactly. “Social Justice” is just the latest rendition of social conservatism/bourgeois morality. Social conservatism isn’t static. It changes relative to time and place like anything else. Even the staunchest 1950s-style American social conservative was a flaming liberal compared to a medieval Catholic social conservative or an ancient Roman […]
By Christopher Rufo, New York Post Ibram X. Kendi’s name appears everywhere: in school curricula, corporate training programs, even the Navy’s official reading list. The Boston University prof is a blazing supernova in the constellation of radical-chic race activism. But be warned: His philosophy would jeopardize the bedrock […]

By Andrei Znamenski The paper explores the political and ideological evolution of the mainstream left thought collective in the West. Heavily influenced by the classical Marxian paradigm prior to the 1950s, this collective gradually shifted to the matters of culture and identity between the 1950s and the 1980s. […]
What Hanson is describing here is fairly consistent with the way that a range of social scientists and political theorists have characterized class relations in the present era. The “Left” represents the alliance of the rising forces of digital capitalism and the professional-managerial class (Joel Kotkin’s “tech-oligarch/new clerisy” […]
By Wesley Yang The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of America announced last year that it would set diversity quotas for any film eligible to win a best picture award. In order to enforce these targets, there will be regular surprise inspections into the racial origins […]
By Andrew Sullivan “What happened to you?” It’s a question I get a lot on Twitter. “When did you become so far right?” “Why have you become a white supremacist, transphobic, misogynistic eugenicist?” Or, of course: “See! I told you who he really was! Just take the hood […]
This is a great interview with McWhorter, and one of the best discussions I have seen on these topics. He gives the answers I would be inclined to give to the interviewer’s questions. PBS, Firing Line Columbia University linguist and race commentator John McWhorter explains the origins of […]
By Matt Taibbi Funny, outspoken, and original, the political science professor and author talks race, class, liberalism, and Robin DiAngelo on Useful Idiots. Last May, the Democratic Socialists of America invited the longtime Yale, Northwestern, and University of Pennsylvania professor Adolph Reed to speak to the New York […]
By Bari Weiss Maud Maron was a model public defender. Then she was forced out of her job because of her political views and her race. If you google “bleeding heart liberal,” Maud Maron might well turn up as the first hit. Every cause liberals are supposed to […]
MSNBC: We are horrible and losing viewers, our solution is to be more horrible.
This is the govt telling Big Tech to do it. So it’s the govt repealing The First Amendment.
What happened in Libya, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Afghanistan? I have witnessed more humanitarian interventions in my life then one can count. Blood baths , mass migration of refugees, instability and a power vacuum which harbors terrorism.
