What ISIS Really Wants

From the Atlantic. A thorough overview of the much-maligned militant-Muslim Männerbund. What is the Islamic State? Where did it come from, and what are its intentions? The simplicity of these questions can be deceiving, and few Western leaders seem to know the answers. In December, The New York […]

Why I’m Scared of Widows & Orphans

Islam, immigration, and interventionism. I’ll be incorporating a response to the Ann-xieties expressed here (and elsewhere) into a future Infernal episode. There’s a lot of raspberrying and dismissiveness in the debate over whether to let the wave of “Syrian” “refugees” wash up on U.S. shores. In the partisan […]

Antiracism, Our Flawed New Religion

By John McWhorter Opposition to racism used to be a political stance. Now it has every marking of a religion, with both good and deleterious effects on American society. An anthropology article from 1956 used to get around more than it does now, “Body Ritual Among the Nacirema.” […]

The Magical Bottomless Labor Pool

The Princess of Pessimism, Ann Sterzinger, on labour and…er, labour. 1,950 words A few months back, publisher Chip Smith asked me to write a new intro for the upcoming second edition of my 2011 novel NVSQVAM. To write the essay I had to rethink my protagonist, Lester Reichartsen, […]

Halal & Hypocrisy XIII: Remove Kebab?

  New from the Inferno: A tyrannical tale of kebabs and killjoys. The south of France, and one man finds himself deeply disenchanted by the culinary delights on offer in his locale. So much so, in fact, that he took to the press, voicing his determination never to […]

France’s False Choice

Atlantic article from January. Thoughtful overview of Dar al-Islam in the land of the Gauls. Also, rather refreshing to see a mainstreamer who can tell the fucking difference between liberty and democracy! The impressive and inspiring show of solidarity at France’s unity march on January 11—which brought together […]

More Anarchistic Than Thou

A reply to “Anti-Fascist News“: An uninformed lay person reading the pathetically ignorant and barely literate bromide against Attack the System recently issued by “Anti-Fascist News” would hardly know anarchism is a vast tradition in modern political philosophy with roots in the radical Enlightenment more than two centuries […]

That’s Dr. Nazi to You

I tell you, this Keith Preston guy is bad ass, whoever he is. Says professional “anti-fascist” Mike Issacson: “Another NPI speaker Keith Preston, also ends up largely in the same place as Faye and the others, but in his own fake anarchist way. For Preston, the end result […]

The New Intolerance of Student Activism

By Conor Friedersdorf The Atlantic Professor Nicholas Christakis lives at Yale, where he presides over one of its undergraduate colleges. His wife Erika, a lecturer in early childhood education, shares that duty. They reside among students and are responsible for shaping residential life. And before Halloween, some students […]

Cards Against Humanitarians

An end-of-September piece from Foreign Policy. By Ilya Lozovsky On Friday, heads of state — along with Nobel Prize winners, Pope Francis, and Beyoncé — convened at the United Nations in New York to inaugurate a grand new agenda to improve human welfare. Known as the Sustainable Development […]

Horizontal Collaboration

A raunchily revisionist review by Ann Sterzinger. Sheds more light on the Conflict Without Heroes that was World War II. __________________ Is present-day Paris more puritanical than it was under the Nazis? I’d love to simply dwell on the jaunty visual attractiveness—not to mention the entertainment and historical […]

J’accuse: Leftist intellectuals turn right

From Politico. Onfray’s book on atheism lies half-read on my print-pile; maybe one day, I’ll actually lay hands on it again. ~MRDA~ _________________ Unusual ideological bedfellows in France are uniting against globalization and the euro. By Pierre Briançon 10/16/15, 5:30 AM CET Updated 10/16/15, 7:14 PM CET PARIS […]

Either Way, It’s American Displacement Day

The Infernal take on “Columbus Day”. _________________ Yesterday yielded another round of commotion regarding the infamous Christopher Columbus, designated “discoverer” of the so-called “New World” (Leif Erikson moans from Midgard!). No doubt, the less-than-vocal majority of Statesiders were simply thrilled to get a day off from work; the […]

Beyond Social Justice

A discussion with Ian Mayes, Nexus X Humectress, and Keith Preston about how social justice activism has led anarchist movements astray and lots of other stuff. Topics include: Anarcho-pacifism Intentional communities Beyond Social Justice: how historical opposition to valid injustices has now evolved into something absurd. How totalitarian […]

Trojan Horde

An unapologetically Nietzschean take on the refugee crisis. By Dr. Robert M. Price Thus Spake Zarathustra I have read two books that turned out to be truly prophetic. Not clairvoyant, mind you, just prescient. The authors were like Isaac Asimov’s futurologist Hari Seldon in his Foundation epic: they […]

So Where Are the Feminists?

Ann Sterzinger asks the question at RightOn, spotlighting how the clash in the feminist worldview between “Enlightenment Person” and “Mommy Goddess” curtails any meaningful criticism of the more predatory and illiberal residents of Dar al-Islam. I notice the bifurcation a lot in abortion debates, where feminists talk about […]

Tyranny of the Weak

By Aleksey Bashtavenko “There is no progress in human history. Democracy is a fraud. Human nature is primitive, emotional, unyielding. The smarter, abler, stronger, and shrewder take the lion’s share. The weak starve, lest society become degenerate: One can compare the social body to the human body, which […]

The Ruling Class Hissy Fit

This includes an interesting discussion of Angelo Codevilla’s theory of the ruling class. I have my differences with Codevilla (mostly because he’s too partisan right-leaning and not nearly radical enough), but his perspective is worth checking out, although I would suggest doing so within the context of a […]

Bernie Sanders and his enemies to the left

It looks like the Sanders campaign might actually be exposing some cracks in the PC coalition, i.e. between the neo-liberal but culturally leftist Hillaryites, the social democratic labor leftist Sandersites, and the identify politics-intersectionality oriented far Left. By Jack Ross The Hill Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) historic socialist […]

The New Totalitarians Are Here

By Tom Nichols The Federalist There’s a basic difference in the traditions of political science between “authoritarians” and “totalitaritarians.” People throw both of these words around, but as is so often the case, they’re using words they may not always understand. They have real meaning, however, and the […]

White Privilege and Other Hot Air

It’s time for anarchists to drop all this “privilege theory” nonsense. Our struggle is against the global power elite, not any race,religion, gender, nationality, etc, etc, etc. By Keith Preston Libertarian Alliance Libertarians of whatever stripe tend to focus primarily on political theory, law, economics, ethics, and philosophy. […]

California State Assembly passes resolution equating criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism

The Zionist wing of totalitarian humanism strikes! By Annie Robbins and Matthew Taylor Mondoweiss School’s out, but that didn’t stop California’s state assembly from passing Resolution HR35 buttressing a controversial report commissioned by the University of California that accuses students and faculty of contributing to an environment fostering […]
