Original: An Anarchist Case for UBI, de Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Traduzido para o Português por Gabriel Serpa. ​A Renda Básica Universal (RBU) tem ganhado os holofotes durante esta corrida eleitoral, graças a Andrew Yang e seus apoiadores. Desde que ele começou sua campanha em favor dela, outros candidatos têm sido questionados sobre a possibilidade de…
Harm Reduction, Soapboxing, and Destructive Voting
As anarchists, we obviously reject representative democracy along with the state itself. As such, many anarchists advocate against voting in elections or even participating at all, seeing it as reinforcing and legitimizing the very system we’re fighting so hard to abolish. However, not all anarchists are against participating in the electoral process in the here…
Liberal Patriotism and the Trust Crisis That Isn’t
Pete Buttigieg is a fascinating figure. This isn’t to say that his policies or beliefs are unique, but his popularity among Democrats is something I’ve had a passive awareness of for the past year. This intrigues me, because I see very few things in Mayor Pete that make him stand out among other reformist liberals;…
Demistificare il Miniarchismo di Sinistra
Di Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Originale pubblicato il 3 giugno 2020 con il titolo Demystifying Left Minarchism. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Quando si parla di libertarismo di destra, molti che gravitano in quell’area elencano le varie fazioni del movimento libertario. Le più note, semplificando, si riducono ad anarchismo e miniarchismo. Tra gli anarchici troviamo l’anarchismo giusnaturalista…
Demystifying Left Minarchism
When talking about right libertarianism, many associated with those circles are quick to point out the varying factions of the libertarian movement. The simplest and most well known division is that between the anarchists and minarchists. On the anarchist side, you have your natural rights ancaps, consequentialist ancaps, agorists, individualist anarchists, free market anarchists, geo-anarchists,…

Nativi, migranti e sinistra anglo-americana Di Ruairi McCallan. Originale pubblicato l’otto aprile 2019 con il titolo Red & Brown Alliances: Nativism, Migration & the Anglo-American Left. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. In America come in Gran Bretagna, il discorso politico si è arenato tra due fenomeni connessi tra loro: Brexit e Trump. È ormai chiaro che…
An Anarchist Case for UBI
Universal Basic Income (UBI) is quickly becoming a hot topic this presidential cycle due to the likes of Andrew Yang and his supporters. Since he began his campaign, many other candidates have been interrogated about their support for the idea and more and more are responding positively, even if half-heartedly. Sadly some, such as Bernie…
Red & Brown Alliances: Nativism, Migration & The Anglo-American Left
In both the US and UK, the political commentariat are gripped by two related phenomena: Brexit and Trump. It is now generally accepted that the rise of Trump and the vote for Brexit were driven largely by two factors. The first was anger at the unequal nature of modern capitalism, the second was fear of…
Bernie vs. Corporate Welfare
Endless pages could be written criticising Bernie Sanders’ platform and voting record, but despite his affinity for trying to pass off milquetoast social democracy as democratic socialism he has suggested some useful solutions on occasion. One such occasion was when he introduced the Stop Bad Employers by Zeroing Out Subsidies Act or the Stop BEZOS…
No, Bernie Will Not Save Us
It shouldn’t have to be repeated so often, but Bernie Sanders is not anti-capitalist, a socialist, nor even much of a solid leftist. Sure, he’s much further to the left than your average Democrat. Social democrats are in general slightly more to the left than traditional Democrats. However just because he’s more to the left…
Media e Stato Corporativo
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato il 2 aprile 2016 con il titolo The Media and the Corporate State. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. In un’intervista con Cenk Uygur del 23 marzo, Bernie Sanders diceva: “In questo paese, i media sono un’arma della classe di potere,” e proseguiva citando le concentrazioni industriali (ad esempio, la Disney che…
DSA-LSC: Anarchy in the AfterBern
Since the Bernie Sanders campaign, there has been an uptick in interest in the ideas of democratic socialism among leftists. This has played a role in radicalizing both progressives and former democrats and refocusing the left on movements for labor rights and social justice. Seeing this as an opportune moment, many social anarchists have started…
La Sinistra Lieta di Tradire Libertà e Cosmopolitismo
[Di Edmund Berger. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 15 gennaio 2017 con il titolo Leftist Politicians Will Always Happily Betray Liberty & Globalism. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] Nel suo discorso di nuovo anno, soprannominato “il giorno del caos”, il leader del partito laburista britannico Jeremy Corbyn ha colto l’occasione per far…
Leftist Politicians Will Always Happily Betray Liberty & Globalism
In his first speech of the new year, an event now being dubbed the “day of chaos”, British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn seized opportunity to unleash torrents of his confusion in his support base and back-pedal on one his long-held positions. Bowing to the pressure of the conservative wing of the party — and to…
On Trade: Doherty Hates Facts, and Wants to Kill Them
At Reason, Brian Doherty tears into Bernie Sanders for opposing what the latter calls “unfettered free trade” (“Bernie Sanders Hates The World’s Poor, and Wants to Hurt Them,” April 5). “This wicked man deliberately wants to make it impossible for Americans to do the thing that historically most guarantees helping the truly poor in the…
Bernie Sanders’s Short Memory
During his interview with the New York Daily News, Bernie Sanders was asked to specify the fraud committed by Wall Street banks. He replied: “What kind of fraudulent activity? Fraudulent activity that brought this country into the worst economic decline in its history by selling packages of fraudulent, fraudulent, worthless subprime mortgages. How’s that for…
Sanders’ Free Trade Mythology — Or Reason’s?
At Reason, Steve Chapman (“Bernie Sanders’ Free Trade Mythology,” March 19) faults Bernie Sanders for saying: “Do you know that in 1960, Detroit, Michigan, was one of the wealthiest cities in America? Flint, Michigan, was a prosperous city. But then what happened is corporate America said, ‘Why do I want to pay somebody in Michigan…
Henry Kissinger on Trial
The Trial of Henry Kissinger by Christopher Hitchens (2001) Christopher Hitchens’s 2001 book, The Trial of Henry Kissinger, has become strangely relevant this month as Richard Nixon’s former Secretary of State finds himself in the news. Kissinger’s rediscovered relevancy began when Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton bragged that she “was very flattered when Henry Kissinger said…
When are Crimes Against Humanity “Arcane References”?
When are crimes against humanity “arcane references”? When the United States government commits them. According to Politico (Michael Crowley, “Sanders once urged abolishing CIA,” Feb. 22), in a debate with Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders “befuddled some viewers with an arcane reference to a 1953 U.S.-backed coup in Iran, which Sanders called an example of America’s…
Sanders & Trump are too Establishment on Syria
Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton both want the U.S. government to set up a “safe zone” in Syria to care for refugees from the raging civil war. You may assess their judgment by noting that Secretary of State Clinton and Sen. Rubio also pushed for bombing and regime change in Libya, which was crucial in spreading bin…
