Anarchism not Nationalism
In the wake of the murder of Christmas shoppers in Breitscheidplatz public square in Berlin comes Mises Institute President Jeff Deist’s tragicomic article Market Borders, not Open Borders. After some correction that the suspect was Tunisian rather than Pakistani (making no difference to Deist), it takes him all the way up until the second sentence…
Brexit and Our Long-Term Goals
The decentralisation of political authority is, in itself, undoubtedly a victory for the anarchist cause. However, in the case of the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union, it may be strange to look at it this way, given the reasons for which the Leave side of the campaign won. The Leave campaign was grotesque…
La Libertà di Parola È Giustizia Sociale
Secondo un recente sondaggio del Pew Research, il 40% degli americani tra i diciotto e i 34 anni ritiene che lo stato debba limitare la libertà di parola quando questa offende le minoranze. I più anziani sono meno favorevoli all’idea, mentre i democratici favorevoli sono il doppio dei repubblicani. Da membro dell’ala libertaria della sinistra…
Free Speech is Social Justice
A recent Pew Research Survey found 40% of Americans from ages 18 to 34 support the notion that the government should limit speech that is offensive to minorities.

Sanders’s Immigration Comments Prove We Need a Radical Left
Bernie Sanders thinks open borders are a “right-wing proposal” that “would make everyone in America poorer.” Sanders’s comments not only display a shocking ignorance of the economics of immigration, but also a disappointing, racist, xenophobic tendency among the mainstream left. While Sanders also thinks we have a “moral responsibility” to “work with the rest of…
Threat Level: Pointless on Feed 44
C4SS Feed 44 presents Daniel Pryor‘s “Threat Level: Pointless” read Christopher King and edited by Nick Ford. The only likely change in behaviour amongst the British public is a greater feeling of dread when they see someone who looks “a bit foreign.” This fearmongering serves the state’s agenda of control and power by applying the timeless…
Livello di Allerta: Insensato
“Dio mio il livello di allerta a Londra è appena stato innalzato e mi è passata la voglia di uscire :(” Così diceva un sms di un mio amico. La recente notizia secondo cui il governo britannico ha innalzato il livello di allerta terroristico a “serio” riaccende il clima di paura, riflesso sui social media…
Threat Level: Pointless
“Man the terror alert for London has just been upped I don’t wanna go out now :(”, the text from my friend read.

Yet even…
