Hour Exchange: Spending Time in Portland (Maine)
Since 1971, when its convertibility into any precious metal was suspended, the US dollar has been a de facto fiat currency. Meaning, in this case, that its value is only maintained by government regulation. But what if money was based on something else? Like time. Well guess what? That project has been ongoing since at least…
Review: Ayn Rand, Homosexuality, and Human Liberation
Let’s begin this review honestly: Despite having referenced her in multiple articles, I—like almost all leftists regardless of ideology—do not like Ayn Rand and am most certainly not an Objectivist. I approach her much like Karl Hess did: Seeing her value in comparison to Emma Goldman but rejecting her ostensive, unflattering solipsism. Yet, I consider…

L’articolo seguente è stato pubblicato originariamente su The Bates Student. Le parole “anarchico” e “anarchismo” si riaffacciano nel gergo politico del ventunesimo secolo. Cito da un mio precedente articolo pubblicato sul Center for a…
No Really, What is Anarchism?
The terms ‘anarchist’ and ‘anarchism’ are returning to the center stage of political lingo in the twenty-first century. To quote my own article on Center for a Stateless Society: President Donald Trump has repeatedly attempted to associate Black Lives Matter with anarchists and anarchism. He has tweeted such threatening posts as just the phrase “Anarchists, we see…
Anarcho-Punk Collab With Cincy Food Not Bombs
I don’t generally like writing about myself, but here we go: I have long been a part of the southern Ohio and northern Kentucky punk scene(s)—playing in bands like NOPE and Soy. and going to shows of bands like Treason, Lockjaw, and numerous others. And I have always considered my involvement in the punk ‘movement’…
