By Shamus Cooke, Counterpunch Not long ago pundits eulogized the death of Latin America’s “Pink Tide,” that mixture of revolutionary movements and left-leaning governments that sought the ever-elusive “3rd way” of economic development for Latin America, which ripped the continent out of the once-sturdy hands of U.S. imperialism.

From what I can tell, the Alt-Right has more or less fractured into multiple directions. Charlottesville was more or less their Altamont. Some Alt-Rightists have become Trumpists. Others have associated themselves with the conventional white supremacist milieu, and others have moved into the outer fringes (like National-Bolshevism). It […]

Whatever happened to the idea that libertarianism is supposed to be about doing your own thing individualism and free association?
In my perfect world, we’d have thousands, or tens of thousands, of these.
Wrong. Our far-right are 19th-century plutocratic liberals. Our center-right are moderate reform liberals. Our center-left are neo-liberals. Our far-left are progressive liberals. He’s right that we don’t have a far-left movement unless you count tankies on YouTube.
This is somewhat reminiscent of when cosmopolitanism, bohemianism, androgyny, sexual/chemical experimentation, etc. were considered to be the prerogatives of aristocrats in opposition to the values of the conservative peasantry.
