The Weekly Abolitionist: How Prisons Kill
In recent weeks, I’ve seen multiple stories about deaths in prisons. These deaths were all preventable and easily attributable to prison conditions. Let’s examine a few of these incidents. According to the Miami Herald, “Florida’s Department of Corrections is facing a third potential criminal probe in the wake of another inmate death at a state…

The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein
Naomi Klein, to a casual reader, might seem to hate the free market. Or at least she hates what most people think of as the free market, based on the conventional use of that term by mainstream politicians and journalists. And the usual vulgar libertarian suspects (see here and here and here) have reacted with exactly the kind of by-the-numbers polemics you’d…
Os Rothbardianos de Esquerda – Parte 2: Depois de Rothbard
Esta postagem se inicia onde a primeira metade parou: com a desilusão (e o abandono) da New Left por parte de Rothbard. Agora eu quero olhar para algumas das pessoas que continuaram a tradição rothbardiana de esquerda. Karl Hess estava entrando de cabeça na esquerda quando Rothbard deu a New Left como uma causa perdida. Mesmo durante…
“World Government” – It’s Not Just For Birchers
Back in the ’90s, the Financial Times referred to the G8 countries and the Washington Consensus they enforced as a “de facto world government.” As if we needed any reminder that such a global corporate regime exists in practice, consider the Trans-Pacific Partnership currently under negotiation. Although in theory the authority of all treaties signed…

Dialectical Libertarianism
The measure of statism inheres in the functioning of the overall system, not in the formal statism of its separate parts.
The Left-Rothbardians, Part II: After Rothbard
Kevin Carson: with Rothbard’s disillusion with (and abandonment of) his New Left alliance. Now I want to look at some of the people who continued the left-Rothbardian tradition.

On the Shoulders of Giants
Carson: We’ve been coalescing like a liquid metal Terminator into a self-conscious movement, dedicated to using the master’s tools to tear down the master’s house.
“Public” vs. “Private” Sector
In the case of the corporate economy, it’s almost meaningless.

That’s fewer than usual — we had less content than…

We’re All “Social Democrats” Now
