O Novo Terrorismo Verde
Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Artigo original: Terrorist is the New Green, 18 de Março de 2017. Traduzido por Gabriel Serpa. Algumas greves promovidas pelo sindicato IWW (Industrial Workers of the World), combinadas com a revolução bolchevique na Rússia, foram suficientes para instaurar nos Estados Unidos uma paranoia sobre uma suposta ameaça comunista. Assim começou o chamado primeiro…
From Rebellion to Revolution
The Floyd rebellion is changing the world before our very eyes. What type of change and to what degree it will shift the balance of forces between rulers and ruled, haves and the have-nots remains to be seen. What is clear is that there is an active and open political contest to shape the outcome….
Maccartismo in Verde
Di Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Originale pubblicato il 18 marzo 2017 con il titolo Terrorist is the New Green. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Alcuni scioperi promossi dal sindacato IWW, uniti alla rivoluzione bolscevica in Russia, bastarono a mandare in fibrillazione gli Stati Uniti su una possibile minaccia comunista. Cominciò così il primo Terrore Rosso. Le abitazioni…
Why Far-Right Cultism Is a Dangerous Game
Last week, Trump supporters — in part at the president’s urging — stormed the US capitol building, forcing Mike Pence and congress to evacuate. Others placed multiple IEDs (specifically pipe bombs) in the building. The storming and violent standoff ended in police using tear gas and flash bangs to disperse the crowd, and apparently shooting…
Mass Anarchism: A Political Strategy of Alt-Right Circumvention
Popular movements, focusing on anti-police community self-defense, may be the best way to effectively circumvent the influence that alt-right fake news sites are continuing to have on society now and in the long-run. In contrast to single-issue protest campaigns, a broad movement towards community self-defense would avoid key pitfalls in the struggle for the support…
Riot Journalism
How to ethically cover social unrest is a complex debate, it is also an increasingly necessary one “A riot is the language of the unheard.” – Martin Luther King, 1966 Bogota, Colombia – Civil unrest is often the only available tool for people without voices. From the United States, to Berlin, to India, to Moscow,…
Blaming the Dead, and What Isn’t Surprising About the Murder of Garrett Foster
No, it’s not surprising that the Austin Police Department let the person who killed Garrett Foster go after less than a day. It’s not surprising that they didn’t charge them. It’s not even surprising that the president of the Austin police officer’s union, Kenneth Cassaday, would publicly denounce Garrett Foster on the same day.  Truth…
Terrorist is the New Green
In the wake of several IWW-backed labor strikes in the US and the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, the US was thrown into a frenzy over fears of the red menace. Thus began the first Red Scare. The homes of suspected anarchists, socialists, social democrats, communists, and other radical leftists were raided and at least 500…
Polizia Discriminata?
[Di Logan Glitterbomb. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 23 settembre 2016 con il titolo Police Discrimination? Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] In quello che si spera sia una tendenza, cinque agenti di polizia si sono visti negare il servizio presso un ristorante Taco Bell di Louisville, Kentucky. Il proprietario ha chiesto scusa…
L’Ingenuità della Destra Autoritaria Riguardo la Natura Umana
[Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society l’otto ottobre 2016 con il titolo The Authoritarian Right is Naive About Human Nature. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] Avete mai notato l’ironia insita nel fatto che quegli stessi che dichiarano la propria sfiducia verso uno stato forte (“Amo il mio paese ma temo il…
Abolite la Polizia
[Di Kaile Hultner. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 24 settembre 2016 con il titolo Dismantle the Police. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] La settimana scorsa, l’agente Betty Shelby della polizia di Tulsa, Oklahoma, ha sparato alle spalle, uccidendolo, Terence Crutcher, autista quarantenne, a terra dopo essere stato colpito con il taser da…
The Authoritarian Right is Naive About Human Nature
Have you ever considered the level of irony involved in the fact that so many of the same people who claim to distrust big government (“I love my country but fear my government”) also adamantly support the police against Black Lives Matter? These people, by and large, actually worship the culture of police lawlessness as…
Deprogrammiamo il Culto dell’Unità Nazionale
[Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 17 settembre 2016 con il titolo Time to Deprogram From the Cult of National Unity. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] La gente non ama che si bestemmino le sue divinità, e la reazione furiosa al rifiuto di Colin Kaepernick di stare in piedi durante…
Dismantle the Police
Last week, Tulsa, Oklahoma police officer Betty Shelby fatally shot 40-year-old stranded motorist Terence Crutcher in the back after another officer tased him to the ground. The database killedbypolice.net lists Crutcher as the 825th individual to have been shot and killed by a cop in 2016. At this point, it’s clear that nothing short of a complete…
Police Discrimination?
In part of a hopefully rising trend, five police officers were denied service at a Taco Bell in Louisville, Kentucky recently. The owner has since apologized and promised that the employees will be retrained to be more respectful to all customers, including law enforcement. But this is just one domino in an entire series of…
Time to Deprogram From the Cult of National Unity
People don’t like seeing their gods blasphemed, and the backlash against Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the national anthem has revealed the completely religious nature of American patriotism. Tomi Lahren, whose views on racial matters are about what you’d expect from a “conservative commentator” on Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze, has been on a nonstop outrage…
Who the Real Looters Are
If there’s one common theme that unites the economic Right — conservatives, right-libertarians and disciples of Ayn Rand — it’s that looting is bad and extremely prevalent. And they’re all pretty much agreed on who the looters are, besides. The framing has been pretty much the same going back at least to that (possibly Snopesbait)…
Vote If You Must… Then Do What Really Matters
The heat of a presidential election campaign is a good time to reflect on the old Howard Zinn quote about voting: “Would I support one candidate against another? Yes, for two minutes—the amount of time it takes to pull the lever down in the voting booth.” But what really matters, for building a genuinely just…
Clarke Threatens War on America
If the Democrats’ approach under Clinton is doubling down on Obama’s technocratic neoliberal caesarism, with the constant, quiet upward ratcheting of automated drone warfare and electronic surveillance, the alternative from Trump’s GOP is out-and-out fascism. And when I say “fascism,” I mean the kind with smashed windows, lynchings and brownshirt thuggery in the streets. Nowhere…
