Mock Assassinations, Or: My Milkshake Shoos All the Proud Boys From the Yard
The Brexit Party has just done extremely well for itself in the EU elections, though it should be noted that it and the Tories got less than half the total votes. If I had to describe the whole affair, it would be as such: the whole thing became, essentially, a second Brexit referendum. The “remainers”…

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…
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…
Decentralised Common Law Post-Brexit
One of the most challenging elements to a post-Brexit order is the organisation and understanding of law. Since our accession into the EEC, our laws have been increasingly harmonised with and even led by European Union directives and court judgments. Thus we’ve moved into the position of having legislation more dominant in legal acquiescence than…
Brexit Animosity Aimed at the Wrong Targets
Britain is polarised following a referendum where the people were asked to choose between two unpleasant options. The vanilla-flavoured turd is the status quo where the nation state continues its affiliation to the European Union, a big cog in the machine of globalised neoliberalism — a situation that would likely continue to centralise power in…
Brexit and Our Long-Term Goals
The decentralisation of political authority is, in itself, undoubtedly a victory for the anarchist cause. However, in the case of the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union, it may be strange to look at it this way, given the reasons for which the Leave side of the campaign won. The Leave campaign was grotesque…
The Weekly Libertarian Leftist Review 127

Ramzy Baroud discusses water being used as a weapon by Israel against the inhabitants of Palestine. Ben Ehrenreich discusses the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Jonathan Cook discusses Jewish Israeli Arabs and Israeli politics….
Brexit: Which Kind of Dependence Now?
Is Brexit a move toward British independence? Some Leave and Remain partisans may believe so, differing only over whether that’s good or bad. But, as usual, things are more complicated. We should hope that, in one respect, Britain’s exit from the EU will create a kind of dependence that did not exist while it was…
Nationalism and Democracy, An Exit To Nowhere
Elites will never be stripped of their privilege by the method of their ascension. The impoverished will never stop being robbed of their potential by handing it over to new elites. The decision by the majority of voting British citizens to leave the European Union has been seen as a mandate against unaccountable technocratic governors…
