Ron Bailey, Terrible Simplificateur
Reason Science Editor Ron Bailey (“Overpopulation Scaremongering Never Gets Old,” June 19) takes Eugene Linden to task for blaming Lesotho’s poverty on overpopulation. “That’s far too simple a story,” Bailey says — whereupon he hands his beer to Linden and demonstrates how a real pro oversimplifies things. Lesotho couldn’t be overpopulated, Bailey says, because it’s got…
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…
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…
Colonial-Era Debt and Free Banking
The injustice of developing countries having to pay back extortionate rates of interest that emanate from sovereign debt with colonial-era roots is often rightly made due to the oppressive nature of imperialistic regimes of the time. However, one may wonder why such colonial-era debt cannot be feasibly defaulted upon? The standard argument suggests that this…

Wish You’d Stop Bein’ So Good To Me, Cap’n on Feed 44
C4SS Feed 44 presents Kevin Carson‘s “Wish You’d Stop Bein’ So Good To Me, Cap’n” read by Erick Vasconcelos and edited by Nick Ford. Some people might see an internal contradiction between Hoppe’s repeated use of the term “dominated” to describe the role of certain privileged segments of society, and the idea that “libertarian” ideas were formulated by…
Wish You’d Stop Bein’ So Good to Me, Cap’n
You may be familiar with Murray Rothbard’s article “Egalitarianism as a Revolt Against Nature.” Hans-Hermann Hoppe, beloved eminence grise at LewRockwell.com, takes things a step further and makes belief in human inequality the defining characteristic of right-libertarianism (“A Realistic Libertarianism,” Sept. 30). This isn’t just a hill he’s willing to die on, but a hill…
Ucraina: L’Eredità del Colonialismo
In Crimea, truppe prive di insegne hanno occupato l’aeroporto e preso il controllo della regione. A Mosca, il parlamento russo ha autorizzato senza obiezioni l’ex colonnello del Kgb Vladimir Putin all’impiego dei militari russi in Ucraina. A Kiev, capitale dell’Ucraina, un’insurrezione che forse è genuinamente spontanea e forse no, e che forse è composta da…
Ucrânia e o legado do imperialismo
Na Crimeia, tropas uniformizadas sem identificação ocuparam aeroportos e tomaram controle da região. Em Moscou, o parlamento chapa branca russo autorizou que o ex-oficial da KGB Vladimir Putin empregasse forças militares na Ucrânia. Em Kiev, capital da Ucrânia, uma insurreição – que não se sabe ainda se é espontânea ou se é composta principalmente de nacionalistas…
Ukraine: The Legacy Of Colonialism
In the Crimea, troops in insignia-free uniforms have seized airports and taken control of the region. In Moscow, Russia’s rubber-stamp parliament has officially authorized former KGB colonel Vladimir Putin to employ the Russian military in Ukraine. In Kiev, capital of Ukraine, an insurrection that may or may not be genuinely spontaneous and may or may…
The Weekly Abolitionist: A Good Week For Abolition
Last Friday was an exciting day for me as a prison abolitionist. On Friday afternoon, I listened to an absolutely stellar discussion with Reina Gossett and Dean Spade of the Sylvia Rivera Law Project on prison abolition. The highlights were too numerous to discuss them all here, but I’ll mention a few. One really excellent…
Goran Hugo Olsson’s “Concerning Violence”
Göran Hugo Olssons nya dokumentär Concerning Violence undersöker kolonialism I Afrika, med massvis med material från svenska nyhetsarkiv, och genom att knyta ihop filmen med Frantz Fanons bok Jordens fördömda från 1961. Utdrag från boken läses up av Lauryn Hill, vars berättande förmedlar Fanons idéer på ett fängslande sätt. Jag såg nyligen filmen på Sundance…
Concerning Violence: Nine Scenes From The Anti-Imperialistic Self-Defense
Goran Hugo Olsson’s new documentary Concerning Violence examines colonialism in Africa, drawing upon a wealth of archival Swedish news footage and tying the film together with text from Frantz Fanon’s 1961 book The Wretched of the Earth. Excerpts from Fanon are read by Lauryn Hill, whose narration compellingly communicates Fanon’s ideas. I saw the film recently at the…
