Il Credito Bene Comune Appropriato
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato il 23 marzo 2020 con il titolo Credit As an Enclosed Commons. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Ogni volta che qualcuno come Jeff Bezos o Elon Musk viene attaccato da sinistra per il suo parassitismo, ecco che arriva la risposta, puntuale come la cometa di Halley ma molto più rapida. Ecco…
Dalla Parte del Piccolo

In Defense of Small Business: On the Price Gouging/Looting Debate
As the world responds to the COVID-19 (or coronavirus) pandemic, we’re seeing many opportunities to highlight the anarchist perspective.

A Wild Liberty
The Sixth Mass Extinction Of all the complex, wicked problems addressed by the current environmental movement, perhaps the most urgent is the rarely discussed mass extinction. We are currently experiencing Earth’s sixth great mass extinction crisis — on par with the rate that ended the reign of the dinosaurs, thus terminating the Mesozoic. Stuart Pimm…
Jeff Bezos, The CIA And Corporate Power
Norman Solomon recently published a piece about Amazon.com’s connection to the CIA. The CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, claims to be a libertarian, but what kind of libertarian contracts with the CIA? A faux one. It’s not possible to be a libertarian and support one of the most odious agencies of the American state. An…
