More required reading. This describes very well the revolution that has taken place in American politics in recent decades and the nature of the ruling class as presently constituted. The only point of contention I have with it is its nostalgia for the good old days of WASPish […]
Required reading. This article explains very vividly why the modern PC feminist movement and anti-statist politics are not compatible.
http://newrightamerica.blogspot.com/2010/08/critique-of-market-societywell-more-of.html By Michael Parish Since its emergence in early modernity, the capitalist market has been trumpeted as the natural collorary to liberal governance, and understandably so. If the state assumes the atomized individual as its theoretical basis, and the natural rights of that individual as its chief (protective) […]
http://newrightamerica.blogspot.com/2010/08/liberty-for-who-rebuttal-to-darian.html By Michael Parish Regular followers of this blog will know that I am unyielding in my contempt for the left-liberarian tendency, whose proponents I and others have engaged in debate to no effect. Hence the disproportionate amount of space I dedicate to sliming them here. As of […]
Interesting article on Roberts from the John Birch Society’s New American. Glad to see Roberts is still in the game.
by Quagmire Originally posted on the American New Right blog As Preston and his comrades are busily outlining a functional anti-state strategy (and as a functional anti-state movement is busily coalescing around them) they have grown into a lightning rod for thunderstorms of left-wing hysterics. These have predictably […]
Former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky says yes. Watch the video. David Frost interviews Bukovsky here.
One from the Right, by Thomas Sowell Elites may have more brilliance, but those who make decisions for society as a whole cannot possibly have as much experience as the millions of people whose decisions they preempt. The education and intellects of the elites may lead them to […]
How living through an earthquake turned an anarcho-communist into a Hobbesian. Read the story. This has nothing to do with anarchism as I conceive of it, but it’s an interesting read.
Another once honorable organization falls into the clutches of PC and does the bidding of the therapeutic state. Article by Stephen Baskerville.
It has been called to my attention that many of the ATS/ARV affiliated blogs and webpages do not include contact information. To build a local group in your area, obviously people will need a quick and effective method of getting in touch with you. Please consider posting a […]
Congress is at the bottom, but the military and the police are in the top three. See the poll results.
Great work from our friends in the north!
“In the nineteenth century, a liberal was a person who championed individual liberty in a context of laissez-faire economics, who defined liberty as the absence of coercion, and who regarded the state as an ever-present threat to personal freedom and responsibility. Today, a liberal is a person who […]
“I am a child of the South. [Head of DHS] Janet Napolitano tells me I need to be afraid of people who are labeled white supremacists, but I was raised around white supremacists. I am not afraid of white supremacists. I am concerned about my own government. The […]
Which is the future of the United States? Bill Lind has argued that the U.S. more closely resembles the Spanish empire as much as any previous “superpower” and will suffer a similar fate. The Spanish essentially bankrupted themselves through aggressive warfare and experienced gradual decline over the next […]
Now, this is good stuff.
by Andrew Yeoman [Note: I have been corresponding with the author of the recent SF Gate piece about getting the Bay Area independent. Here is the most important part of that correspondence so far.] In my opinion, the Bay Area would have to be a confederation with a […]
I can’t believe they actually ran this.

[Keith: Someone posted this on FB. Some interesting data is included.] Do you ever just sit back and wonder what in the world has happened to America? The truth is that the America that so many of us once loved so much has been shattered into a thousand […]

One on immigration , one on the battle between proprietarian anarchists or anarcho-capitalists and anarcho-syndicalists or anarcho-communists, and one on anarchism without adjectives in response to a critic. If you post there, please do so in a civil and courteous manner. Let’s take the high road and avoid […]
by Anna Morgenstern at Center for a Stateless Society If you have an interest in a stateless society, you need to understand what the state is. Otherwise you could end up chasing shadows, and many self-proclaimed anarchists often do so, unfortunately. When you look around you, you can […]
Robert Higgs thinks so, and considers this to be a good thing. He explains why here. Higgs’ analysis is fairly similar to that of Martin Van Creveld. According to these thinkers, maintenance of the Empire will eventually prove cost prohibitive and the Empire will begin to recede. Perhaps […]

Good work from our friends up north!
Some great new interviews from Richard.
I wonder how retardo-liberals get around this one: Racist Gun Control The Racist Roots of Gun Control
Gottfried nails it once again in this discussion of Kagan from AltRight. An overweight Jewish lesbian, whose career seems to have been put on fast track by her political supporters both inside and outside the media and someone who if she held diametrically opposed views, would not even […]
Absolutely required reading. “The sheer number of people killed by states in the twentieth century—up to 100 million, with more killed in peacetime “social reconstruction” than in wars—makes one suspect that state-provided security is extremely expensive in all respects and that meaningful alternatives have been overlooked.” -Joseph Stromberg
Thanks to our Las Vegas friends for digging this Rasmussen study up. These numbers are basically the same as those revealed by the Zogby poll two years ago. Apparently, the numbers have remained the same even with a change in the ruling party. I’d be curious how the […]
See Andrew’s contribution here.
Rothbard’s classic Nations by Consent: Decomposing the Nation-State I generally agree with Rothbard’s position as outlined here, with the exception that I would take a looser, more open-ended definition of property rights or “private property” than Rothbard’s strict Lockeanism. The question of open borders, or free immigration, has […]

So says E. J. Dionne, and old-style “vital center” type. What a dickhead. If only the Right was as radically anti-statist as he claims.

A post at the Forums of the Libertarian Left: “I think our mistake (tempted by Aster) was to denounce Keith Preston, as an homophobe, far rightist. What an idiocy it was. Keith Preston is nothing but a Leftist frustrated with the petty-bourgeois (or haute-bourgeious) Champagne Left. He reminds […]
1. The Populist Right: A wide assortment of sub-tendencies including gun rights, white rights, religious rights, men’s rights, father’s rights, family rights, alternative medicine, home schoolers, conspiracists, militias, state’s rights, local sovereignty, pro-life, hard money, libertarian, anti-tax. Eventually more and more from these camps will recognize that they […]
