Partition & Entanglement
Partition & Entanglement: Review of Home Rule by Nandita Sharma “The entire, eons-long practice of human  movement  into  new  places  was  pushed  out  of  our  imagination — or,  perhaps more accurately, was reimagined as a national security threat. In the process, stasis was glorified as the normative way of being human.” “Only after the death…

We are our own liberators
Much is being made in England and throughout the English speaking or so-called anglophone world about the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in the British empire and its breakaway colony, the United States of America. Hollywood and the monopoly sector of entertainment capital have marked this anniversary with a major feature…
La Giornata delle Vittime del Capitalismo
Di Kevin Carson. Originale: Victims of Capitalism Day, pubblicato il 10 maggio 2020. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Su Reason Ilya Somin, secondo una sua pratica annuale iniziata nel 2007, ha scelto il primo maggio, festa dei lavoratori, per commemorare la “Giornata delle Vittime del Comunismo”. Somin parla di 80-100 milioni di vittime nel ventesimo secolo…
Victims of Capitalism Day
At Reason Ilya Somin, in keeping with his annual practice since 2007, has chosen May 1 — May Day — as his date for  observing “Victims of Communism Day.” Somin cites the “authoritative” Black Book of Communism as his source for a death toll of 80-100 million in the 20th century. To put that “authoritative”…
The Struggle for Hawaiian Decolonization Erupts to Protect Maunakea
Over the past few weeks, the topic of indigenous self-determination and the decolonization of US-occupied lands has re-emerged, not only with the protests against neoliberal austerity in Puerto Rico, but also in less-covered protests by indigenous Hawaiians and allies on Maunakea. What’s occurring on Maunakea could very well be considered the next DAPL protest, as…
Sinistra, Libertari e “Libero Mercato”
Di Emmi Bevensee. Originale pubblicato il 12 luglio 2018 con il titolo Leftists and Libertarians Don’t See Eye to Eye on “Free Trade”. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Libertari e sinistra non parlano lo stesso linguaggio in materia di “libero mercato”, e io credo che sulle rispettive posizioni si possa fare qualche appunto. Cercherò di fare…
Leftists and Libertarians Don’t See Eye to Eye on “Free Trade”
Libertarians and leftists do not speak the same language when it comes to “free trade” but I think there’s something to be said for what both parties are getting at. I’m going to try to do a bit of translating between them that I think might frustrate both teams, hopefully in a good way. When…
Ron Bailey, Terrible Simplificateur
Originale scritto da Kevin Carson e pubblicato il 25 luglio 2017 con il titolo Ron Bailey, Terrible Simplificateur. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Ron Bailey, redattore scientifico di Reason, fa la ramanzina a Eugene Linden (“Overpopulation Scaremongering Never Gets Old,” June 19) per aver detto che la povertà del Lesotho è colpa della sovrappopolazione. “Troppo semplice,”…
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…
