​​There’s No Such Thing as Cancel Culture
“I’ve been canceled!” laments the millionaire in their sixth TV interview (tenth if you count podcast episodes) since tweeting a racial slur as “a joke.” “What about free speech!” they yell freely in front of the camera(s) and microphone(s) meant just for them. I mean really: how “canceled” can someone be if they still have…
Una Consideración Crítica de mi Consideración Crítica
De Corri Ebert. Artículo original publicado el 17 de noviembre de 2022 con el título A Critical Consideration of my Critical Consideration. Traducido al español por Camila Figueroa. Se me ha explicado que todo escritor, ya sea de novelas de alto nivel o de discursos en Internet, siempre tiene una o dos cosas que ha…
A Critical Consideration of my Critical Consideration
It’s been explained to me that every writer—whether of highbrow novels or online internet discourse—always has one or two things they’ve written that they dislike and which haunts them. For me that piece is “A Critical Consideration of Hensley’s Appalachian Anarchism,” which is a response to Dakota Hensley’s article “Appalachian Anarchism: What the Voting Record…
L’ombra Lunga dell’ideologia Coloniale
Di Dawie Coetzee. Originale pubblicato il 13 ottobre 2022 con il titolo The Long Shadow of Colonialist Ideology. Traduzione italiana di Enrico Sanna. È sconfortante notare quanto spesso, nell’attuale dibattito pubblico in Sudafrica, elementi dell’ideologia coloniale spuntano proprio in chi grida che non si può combattere il padrone con le sue stesse armi. Sconfortante perché…
The Long Shadow of Colonialist Ideology
In the present South African political discourse, it is tragic how often elements of colonialist ideology crop up in the arguments of the very people who are most wont to insist that one cannot demolish the master’s house with the master’s tools — tragic because I want them to be right! The metaphor is nonsensical…

Logan Marie Glitterbomb, Combating Hate: A Radical Leftist Guide to Gun Control (Part 4). Перевёл Дмитрий Мрачник https://www.nihilist.li/2017/10/31/levaki-i-pushki-chast-chetvertaya/ Защитники права на владение оружием среди слабозащищенных групп населения должны говорить об одной из наибольших угроз, с которыми эти группы сталкиваются: преступления на почве ненависти. Часто в СМИ путают фанатизм и душевные расстройства, при том, что фанатизм…
Леваки и пушки. Часть первая
Logan Marie Glitterbomb, Combating Hate: A Radical Leftist Guide to Gun Control (Part 1). Перевёл Дмитрий Мрачник https://www.nihilist.li/2017/08/31/levaki-i-pushki-chast-pervaya/ Огнестрельное оружие для гражданского использования — болезненная для левых тема. В их стане можно услышать массу позиций как за, так и против, но все сойдутся в одной мысли: люди нуждаются в пространстве, безопасном для жизни. Копья ломаются…
Libertarians Should NOT Support Texan Secession
Recently, the Republican Party of Texas released a brand new platform stating that “Texas retains the right to secede from the United States, and the Texas Legislature should be called upon to pass a referendum consistent thereto” and calls “for the people of Texas to determine whether or not the State of Texas should reassert…

Bailouts: Racism and Classism in a Billion Dollar Package
The New York Times recently published an article mentioning the failures of the government’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), a COVID-relief program meant to keep businesses afloat and people employed. The article noted that the PPP was not distributed fairly, with the lion’s share of funds going to White-owned businesses, while minorities got less. Coupled with…
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….

Some Social Challenges That Won’t Magically Go Away With a Biden Presidency
2020 will be remembered for a lot, and one of the obvious low points is the start of a global pandemic. However, for many this will be offset (at least partly) by an incredible high point: The election that unseated Donald Trump. At least symbolically, this was (and still is) celebrated as a sizable blow…
Прекратите выселение иммигрантов!
История повторяется ужасным образом. Цыганское население Европы сталкивается с ростом враждебности, дискриминации, маргинализации и бедности. Я ранее писал об этнической регистрации в Швеции, которая осуществляется шведской полицией. В последние месяцы мы, живущие в Швеции, также заметили приток бедных цыган, которые приехали сюда из Румынии, чтобы попытаться собрать деньги с помощью попрошайничества. В Румынии цыгане часто…

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.

Petition: Marsha P. Johnson > Christopher Columbus
This article is best started by briefly outlining two historical figures: Christopher Columbus (1451-1506) and Marsha P. Johnson (1945-1992). Christopher Columbus is believed to have been born in Genoa, Italy and most famously, as the rhyme goes, “sailed the ocean blue in 1492” in order to find a route to Asia under the patronage of…
Ten Thoughts on Statues
In times past, people emptied buckets of shit from their windows to the streets below. We can remember this as a historical fact without the streets continuing to be covered in human waste. If you were violently assaulted, you would want people to recognise the injustice but probably wouldn’t be campaigning for a statue of…
