Another Jeffrey Tucker article questioning the sanctity of lockdown orthodoxy. By Jeffrey Tucker The year was 1957.
I’ve seen some of the circles around C4SS and other supposed “left-libertarians” bashing Jeffrey Tucker (whose orthodox libertarianism I don’t personally share, although I am in favor of all forms of voluntary libertarianism and anarchism) for questioning the sanctity of the lockdowns. By Jeffrey Tucker Many people infected […]
It figures that Singapore would be in the vanguard of techno-therapeutic-fascism. It’s also interesting how so many American right-libertarians engage in such a pathetic veneration of Singapore (“‘They got low taxes, man!”) just as so many American leftists engage in an equally pathetic veneration of Cuba (“They got […]
It seems that most people even on the far left and far right have a limited perception and definition of what concepts like the “state,” “ruling class,” or “power elite” actually mean. It would also seem that we need a much more modernized and expansive definition of these […]
In service of the therapeutic state and the white coast priesthood. But, Goofy, what about your pathological phobia that “neighborhood nationalists” are going to infringe upon someone’s freedom to do their own thing? It’s possible to recognize that the present situation is a genuine public health crisis and […]
–Americans are unlikely to tolerate and extended shutdown, meaning small concession from Governors to give the appearance of progress would be hugely beneficial
Tucker Carlson is a de facto spokesman for the petite bourgeoise and “small capitalist” sectors of the commercial economy, the post-bourgeois proletariat, the “sinking middle,” the dying WASP culture, political traditionalists and constitutional fundamentalists of the kind found on the paleo/populist-right, etc. Many of those interests have been […]
Glad to see some left-wing folks questioning the official ruling class party line.
The tech oligarchy is a principal faction of the rising left-wing of the capitalist class, for whom scientism and the therapeutic state are a core component of their self-legitimating ideology, which is in turn disseminated by the new clerisy whose ranks include the white coat priesthood.
Keith Preston of attackthesystem.com joins Antony Sammeroff and Tom Laird again on episode 150 of the Scottish Liberty Podcast to discuss Covid-19 Corona Virus, anarchism and the Therapeutic State as described by Thomas Szasz.
This would seem to go against the general trend toward marijuana legalization, skepticism of the “war on drugs” and support for “criminal justice reform” generally. It’s also interesting how after 50 years of the “war on drugs,” there are now more drugs, more powerful drugs, and more drug […]

This is interesting. A 50 percent plus majority of Americans now favor legalizing marijuana. However, two thirds say it should be a states’ rights issue. How can this be? Because the demographic that is least likely to favor legalizing marijuana is the one that is most likely to […]

This issue will probably become increasingly contentious as the movement to legalize marijuana spreads to more and more states. This will also likely be a divisive issue on the Left between the libertarian left and the therapeutic statists, health fascists, and anti-smoking crusader types.

Forbes The War on Drugs is an unmitigated failure. Those who support that war might recall Prohibition, a similar deployment of government paternalism, which was wisely repealed 80 years ago this month. Prohibition was the result of misnamed “temperance” crusaders who sought to outlaw the manufacture, transportation, and […]
