We’re Governed by the Communist Manifesto

73864710 4916ec3b88 b

Since its publication the Communist Manifesto has influenced most forms of government. The ideology has mutated from one of utopian ambition to providing a framework that uses the language of egalitarian justice. Marxist ideology no longer has a revolutionary spirit for liberation, but instead has become a template for authority and rule itself. According to Karl Marx there are ten points outlining the necessities of a free society. These points share commonalities with other parts of government ideology that have no historic relationship with Marxism. Even modern right-wing conservatives...

The Loneliness of Ron Paul: By the Numbers, 1975-1985

13paul1 jumbo

In 2022, the ideological landscape of American foreign policy opposition is the most dynamic and diverse it has been in over eight decades. This newfound disorder is especially true for the right, as a new crop of libertarian-leaning and populist Republicans are challenging fundamental precepts of America’s mission in the world. For those who know their foreign policy history or are old enough to remember the Cold War, this represents a sea change in the American right. While the right has a long history of “isolationism,” that tradition of foreign policy restraint waned for much of the...

Whether Medicinally Effective or Not, Marijuana Ought to Be Legal

pexels aphiwat chuangchoem 2178565

Earlier this year, Mississippi became the 37th state to legalize the medical use of marijuana, which is also legal in the U.S. territories of the District of Columbia, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Since California became the first state to legalize medical marijuana in 1996, every couple of years, another state or two are added to the list (there were five in 2016). It is inevitable that the medical use of marijuana will eventually be legal in all 50 states. The effectiveness of medical marijuana has been debated ever since the residents of...

‘What Is a Woman?’ – Six Things Conservatives Need to Know

https://youtu.be/GKZvdtiitLg “Biological sex [is] binary. It’s been binary for like a hundred million years, longer than that.

‘America First’ Means Anti-Bush, Not Antiwar

img 1045

Donald Trump, despite not being perfect (far from it), was useful in making the idea of chronic interventionism and foreign entanglements unpopular, but as much credit as the New Right is given, they are hardly antiwar. The New Right is largely a rejection of the moderates—the neoconservatives and neoliberals—and their exemplars, the Clintons, Cheneys, Bushes, and Romneys. There is certainly an aversion towards our involvement in the Middle East, with Trump telling Jeb Bush in 2016 that, “Your brother lied,” about WMDs in Iraq. But while they may not be Middle East hawks like the...

Now You Care About the Spilling of Blood?

machine gun kelly and megan foxs wildest dates main

Actress Megan Fox recently claimed on social media that she and other Hollywood elites enjoy drinking each others blood, exciting those critical of Hollywood culture. In their minds it proves the evil, secret Pagan nature of the liberal American establishment. It's as though a sub-culture of drinking blood has never existed prior or that the symbolic drinking of blood and eating of the flesh of a body is not an already widely accepted ritual. In any case, a video of a woman boasting of her involvement in the voluntary ritual of blood drinking is upsetting to some. Drinking blood is bad....

Neoconservatives are the Flat-Earthers of Foreign Policy

blowback

Douglas Murray, the author of Neoconservatism: Why We Need It, claims: Neoconservatism is not a cabal or a party, but rather a sense, an instinct, a way of looking at the world. That way of looking at the world is, in my definition, a blend of idealism and realism. We look at the world as it is, but act in the world to make it as we would like it to be. This makes our instincts different from traditional conservatives who often distrust social engineering projects or any form of alteration of a status quo they perpetually see as being an irreversible if often quietly enjoyable decline....

Congress as a Seinfeld Episode, But This Won’t Leave You Laughing

mal (2)

Congress. Seinfeld. Both offer amusing forms of entertainment, one being about nothing and the other starring people that know nothing.  The entertainment value of watching Congress is that their intentions and the effects of their actions are frequently 180 degrees from each other. Kind of like that Seinfeld episode where George Costanza decides to do the exact opposite of his instincts.  For example, he insulted the owner of the New York Yankees during an interview, yet he got the job.  Unfortunately, America is not a Seinfeld episode and such legislative failures can cause devastating...

Why Waco Still Matters

mal (1)

The following article was originally published on Antiwar.com in 2005. On April 19, 1993, agents of the U.S. government assaulted the Branch Davidian “compound” at Waco, Texas – a religious community of Adventists under the leadership of David Koresh – killing 74 men, women, and children, including 12 children younger than five years of age. It was an act of state terrorism so blatant that our government and its media enablers have spent 12 years, several official reports [.pdf], and a lot of time and energy lying about the circumstances surrounding the event and covering up the truth....
