The policy responses of quarantine and shutdown have led to lay-offs, business failures, evictions, and foreclosures. Those still lucky enough to […]
‘Hundreds’ of Whistleblowers Say Military Forcing ‘Anti-American Indoctrination’ on Them: Sen. Cotton
Tom Cotton is a total douchebag and one of the right-wing’s most dangerous figures (as a bridge between the neocons, Likudniks, Saudis, MIC, supply-siders, Reaganites, Trumpists, evangelicals, and nativists). He is also smarter, shrewder, and more calculating than similar figures like Cruz, Rubio, and Hawley. But he is […]
Change the title of this to “On Having Jewishness” and the problematic aspects of this line of thinking are illustrated. This article, along with the writings of Ibram X. Kendi, is the most extreme example I have seen to date of full-blown “left-racial supremacism” entering into mainstream discourse. […]
The creator of ultra-woke poet Titania McGrath makes the definite case against cancel culture.

Unfortunately, I was more correct in my prediction about this kind of stuff than I would have thought, and it has happened a lot more rapidly than I would have thought.
I advise the paleo-populists to jettison the capitalist class and conservative “big media.” By Keith Preston, Chronicles Broad swaths of conservative opinion today would have it that the enemy of the right is some variant of Marxism. But this does not accurately describe people like Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, […]
By Matt Purple, The American Conservative As bombs rain down on Yemen, Lockheed Martin has finally realized it has a problem: a lack of woke consultants. Don’t ever say there isn’t healing in America today. From Christopher Rufo at City Journal: Last year, Lockheed Martin Corporation, the nation’s largest […]

Journalist Glenn Greenwald reacts to the left’s embrace of intelligence agencies on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ Watch here.
If advocates of “wokeness,” “critical race theory,” and “anti-racism” seem to be acting like religious zealots who must crush all heretics, that’s because they are, argued Columbia University linguist John McWhorter at a 2018 debate at the Soho Forum. “Anti-racism as currently configured has gone a long way […]

“I’ve wanted to be a librarian since I was four years old. I guess I was a bit different, even at that age, and libraries always offered a safe, quiet space. In this one room, I could find a number of mini-escapes.”
“I joined CIA almost straight out of college when it can be a challenge to speak up when you’re younger and adjusting to workplace norms, especially in such a unique environment.”
You’ve got to see this to believe it. By Rod Dreher, The American Conservative You have to watch this. You really do. It’s jaw-dropping. It’s a new CIA recruitment ad: READ MORE
The Democrats face the danger of losing working to middle-class moderate voters to the Republicans as the Democrats focus on the battle between corporate neoliberals and the cultural left. The Republicans’ best bet from a strategic perspective would be to adopt a lot of economic populist rhetoric as […]

Emily Jashinsky gives her thoughts on the “wokeness” problem and how it allows powerful people to “maintain their control.”
By Robby Soave, Reason Last week, the American Humanist Association (AHA) stripped British author Richard Dawkins of his 1996 Humanist of the Year award after he made a comment on Twitter that offended some in the transgender community. “Regrettably, Richard Dawkins has over the past several years accumulated […]

Team Rising reacts to a New York Times’ piece on the American CEO’s who earned the most money during COVID.
But what about Marx and Engels? Lots of political incorrectness there. All past cultures and many world cultures today would be considered racist, sexist, ableist, ageist, homophobic, overly religious, etc. etc. by contemporary standards of the kind now found in Western Europe, North America, and Oceania. To eliminate any […]
Krystal Ball and Emily Jashinsky discusses Raytheon’s positive PR amidst President Biden’s plans to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan.
By Robert Stilson, The American Conservative Conservatives are rightly vexed by “woke capitalism,” exasperated at the ways in which big American corporations are increasingly weighing in on sociopolitical issues—invariably, it seems, in favor of the progressive left. Certainly, many businesses are under pressure to do so. Sometimes that […]

By Angelo Codevilla, Independent Institute When Machiavelli wrote, “in order to know Moses’ virtue it was necessary that the people of Israel be slaves in Egypt …,” he was pointing to the truth that knowing what one is up against is a powerful incentive for dealing with it […]
American mathematician, cultural critic, and founder of New Discourses, James Lindsay joins Michael this week for a discussion on critical race theory and its warning signs, the theory’s parallels to Soviet logic, which philosophers were merely rationalizing their own pathologies, how language is often used as code to […]
This is an interesting discussion of the culture wars from a serious left/Marxist perspective. My viewpoint is that the cultural left has been the hands-down winner on most cultural issues (outside of certain narrow geographical, subcultural, institutional, or socioeconomic sectors). But the economic right has been the hands-down […]
It’s interesting that at least some social democrats and other leftists are just now starting to notice this. Even ultra-milquetoasters like Majority Report. Better late than never, I guess. Sam host Denver University Professor of Law Nancy Leong to discuss her new book, Identity Capitalists: The Powerful Insiders Who […]

By Joel Kotkin, American Mind The Biden Administration is on track to stiff our desperate working class.

A social media poster writes: The problem with Keith is he treats idea-sets as if they’re fungible and takes people at their word. He takes the ideological content of things too seriously. Better predictors would be those who said everything will ultimately boil down to biological race. The […]
By Alexander Rubinstein, Mintpress News In order to identify where woke imperialism exists, we have to define it first. So what is it? It’s certainly not the first iteration of hegemonic domination buttressed by moralism. The doctrine of Responsibility to Protect (R2P) was officialized by the United Nations […]
For some time, probably about 25 years, I’ve been predicting the emergence of this kind of weird “rainbow-queer-multicultural-feminist-authoritarian-statist-oligarchic-capitalist-militarist-imperialist” regime. Here it is. Also, Lloyd Austin is Raytheon’s representative in the Biden administration, the same role played by Mark Esper in the Trump administration.
With the honorable exceptions of the “Gods and Radicals” and “Anarchist News” websites, I have yet to see any major figures or groups in the “anti-fascist” or “left-anarchist” milieus disown or even criticize Alexander Reid-Ross. Apparently, “no platform” doesn’t apply to feds, spooks, and cops. Apparently, the progressive […]
By Matthew Walther, The American Conservative More than half a decade ago, I began using the phrase “woke capital” in conversation and occasional social media posts. At the risk of sounding like someone’s father rushing the stage on Jerry Springer, I would like to register a disputed paternity […]
Woke capitalism on the move.
