How NOT to Argue Against the Existence of Monopoly
Liz Wolfe, in recent weeks, seems to have displaced Elizabeth Nolan Brown as the chief tech platform apologist at Reason. In her most recent article on this theme, “Google CEO Sundar Pichai Is Right: Companies That Dominate Today May Be Gone Tomorrow” (July 26), the general lines of her argument are simple: “Today’s Big Tech…
Imagining an Optimistic Cyber-Future
Mastering most things humans do requires lifetimes of practice. Woodworking, gardening, and painting are just a few crafts whose histories stretch back thousands of years. But modern telecommunication, the act of communicating nearly instantaneously with someone from afar, is different. Its history is so short that there is relatively little of it: the very first…
A Internet nos Ofereceu Liberdade, Mas Nós Escolhemos a Regra Corporativa
Leia qualquer um dos escritos clássicos dos cypherpunks ou dos cripto-anarquistas e uma coisa é certa: a internet nos ofereceu liberdade. Embora os movimentos de código aberto e ponto a ponto (p2p) ainda estejam vivos e bem em certos cantos da Internet, a maioria de nós escolheu a regra corporativa. Embora as criptomoedas nos ofereçam…
Uma Resposta Agorista ao Banimento de Anarquistas no Facebook
O Facebook está de volta nisso novamente. Em consequência do comício Unite the Right em Charlottesville alguns anos atrás, e devido a muita pressão de ativistas, o Facebook respondeu com uma onda de proibições e censura de “extremistas raciais” que foi tão ampla e simultaneamente ineficaz que literalmente muitos supremacistas brancos puderam continuar falando besteiras,…
An Agorist Response to Facebook Banning Anarchists
Facebook is back at it again. In the aftermath of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville a few years back, and with much pushing from activists, Facebook responded with a wave of bans and censorship of “racial extremists” that was so wide-reaching and simultaneously ineffective that many literal white supremacists were able to continue…

Di Kelly Wright. Titolo originale:  When Facebook Bans Peaceful Anarchists But Not The Violent State, pubblicato il 22 agosto 2020. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Articolo scritto a quattro mani con Nathan Goodman. “Lo stato chiama legge la sua violenza e crimine quella del singolo.” ~ Max Stirner Il 19 agosto scorso Facebook, cedendo a forti…
When Facebook Bans Peaceful Anarchists But Not The Violent State
“The state calls its own violence law, but that of the individual crime.” – Max Stirner On August 19th, 2020, Facebook finally buckled under immense social and political pressure and announced new content moderation rules focusing on “violent organizations and individuals,” specifically “offline anarchist groups that support violent acts amidst protests, US-based militia organizations [which…
Missing Comma: Ames, ‘The Intercept’, And Ideological Purity
Journalist infighting is the most “Inside Baseball” thing I can conceive of talking about on this blog, but Mark Ames is the subject, and that’s always the signal for a good time. His latest target is the new foreign policy analyst for The Intercept, Marcy Wheeler. In an article from Feb. 28, Ames writes that…
Missing Comma: Seeing The Future
The future of news is much like the future anarchist society we all dream about but can never succinctly put into words: at the end of the day, we just don’t know what it’s going to look like. Professional prognosticators, including many of my colleagues(?), make a pretty penny predicting the predilections of newsophiles five,…
When It Comes to Misogyny, Facebook Learned from the US Government
Lately, feminist activists are organizing against a litany of misogynist Facebook pages that glorify violence against women or treat it as a joke, pages with names like “Raping Your Girlfriend” and “Fly Kicking Sluts in the Uterus.”  The activists’ primary tactics include making specific demands for changes to Facebook’s moderation policy and “calling on Facebook users…
