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…
Riot Journalism
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. From the United States, to Berlin, to India, to Moscow,…

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…
Authority Will Not Save Us. Solidarity Can.
Covid-19 would be deadly and disruptive no matter what political systems or leaders were in place. Yet the scale of death and destruction is undoubtedly influenced by the actions of both common people and the people in power. Although thousands of state workers are doing heroic work, and some politicians are showing themselves to be…
Killing 8chan: The Heart of Modern Nazi Terrorism [CW]
In addition to all kinds of scariness, it’s important also to mention exactly how mediocre 8ch is. It’s the human equivalent of the magazines in your dentist’s but– if it’s even possible– more tryhard. That they consider themselves to be an intellectual vanguard is on par with a grown adult self-identifying as Rick from Rick and Morty. It’s laughably pathetic and sad.
Sterilization and the Supreme Court: Buck v. Bell
One week from the moment I am writing this, the 91st anniversary of the 1927 Supreme Court case Buck v. Bell will come and pass. Ninety-one is admittedly not the nicest or roundest number for a remembrance, but this is not exactly the nicest subject matter, so perhaps it is fitting. I feel that there…

The New Jim Crow
Alexander, Michelle. The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. 2010. The New Press Michelle Alexander’s 2010 book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, argues mass imprisonment and related policies have created a racial caste system for black Americans, which parallels the Jim Crow laws of the late 19th to…
“Nice Cops”
I am of the ACAB (All Cops Are Bastards) and FTP (Fuck The Police) ideological lineages: even though, as a blameless bastard child, I resent the comparison. However, many who engage in this critique of state-backed mercenaries fall into rhetorical traps at the simplest rebuttal.
Questioni di Appropriazione Culturale Rischiano di Favorire la Proprietà Intellettuale
[Di William Gillis. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 25 maggio 2017 con il titolo When Concerns Of Cultural Appropriation Risk Supporting Intellectual Property. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] L’ultima ondata di panico in materia di giustizia sociale viene dalla mia città, dove qualcuno ha fatto una lista che mette alla gogna ambulanti…
When Concerns Of Cultural Appropriation Risk Supporting Intellectual Property
The latest entry in panics over social justice comes from my hometown, where some folks have created a list shaming restaurants and foodcarts that were owned by white people but sold “non-European international cuisine.” One of the more annoying restaurants on that list has now closed as a result of hate mail.
