The Importance of James Burnham

A new and excellent article from Michael Lind. By Michael Lind, Tablet What a newly rediscovered thinker got right and wrong. Who could have guessed that in the third decade of the 21st century, many conservatives would be discussing class struggle, while most progressives would be determined to […]

Twenty Years of 9/11

By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley It’s been twenty years since 9/11 but it feels more like twenty years of 9/11. That’s probably because an entire industrial complex has been constructed around a concerted effort to keep those wounds fresh and harvest the anguish […]


I have written before about why I am not a “conservative.” With all due respect to serious intellectual conservatives like my friends at the Charlemagne Institute, about 99% of American-style conservatives are the political equivalent of Joel Osteen fans even in their better moments. I could make an […]

The American Dream of Secession

By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley Do you smell that, dearest motherfuckers? Secession is in the air and not just among freaky anarchists like me. From coast to coast, from border to border, Americans of all stripes, shades and sizes are openly discussing and […]

Which Model of Pan-Secession is Best?

My guess is that the constituents for pan-secession will include conservatives who do not feel they can ever win under the current system but do not want to go down the road of overt authoritarianism, liberals and leftists who have a “better off without them” attitude toward conservatives, […]

On Having Whiteness

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. […]

They Shoot Trans Kids, Don’t They?

How the State Will Co-opt the Anti-Police Movement

One thing that we learned from the anti-police riots last year is that the state/ruling class/power elite generally prefers to co-opt and absorb protest movements rather than engaging in large-scale direct repression. Remember that corporations and banks were adopting BLM symbolism as their own,  and conducting seminars on […]

“Removing Pesticides from Our Public Spaces”

Public areas such as parks, playgrounds and schoolyards are routinely sprayed with various chemicals to control insects and plants. Evidence has mounted showing that these chemicals damage human health. Pesticides tend to be used disproportionately in African American communities. These chemicals also have unintended consequences for humans, animals […]
