A leading organizer in a self-described "Antifa" cell, Iron Front USA, is a member of a prominent Maryland political family. The organization takes inspiration from the German Iron Front, a paramilitary group that embraced violence against conservatives, National Socialists, and even left-wing rivals. Sean Thomas Kratovil-Lavelle, pictured above at an "Antifa" rally next to his... Read More

Although Nietzsche seems to be the philosopher of choice for many on the Dissident Right, I’ve always had a soft spot for Arthur Schopenhauer. His cantankerous philosophical pessimism has always struck a chord with my own temperament, and for many years I’ve found his quasi-Buddhist and highly compassionate conceptualisation of suffering to be strangely comforting....

We learned yesterday that Roger Hallam, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion (“XR”) apologised after his comments about the Holocaust sparked outrage. I was curious to find out what it was that Hallam said that led to such indignation. German Green politician Volker Beck accused Mr Hallam on Twitter of "bringing the climate movement into disrepute." German... Read More
America has lots of leftists. Forty percent of voters say that they would prefer to live in a socialist country than a capitalist one. Yet America has zero leftists running for president. Think about that the next time someone tells you we live in the greatest country on Earth — or, for that matter, that... Read More
The 2016 left-populist insurrection created a major headache for the neo-liberal Democratic establishment. Midwest white primary voters made self-described socialist Bernie Sanders so competitive that it was uncertain who would win until close to the end, when Hillary won California. Clinton's campaign was unapologetically "globo-homo." A parade of celebrities, plutocrats and anti-white NGO activists like... Read More

For Russians, "Aurora" is not the Goddess of Dawn; it is first of all the battleship Aurora, the legendary cruiser whose thundering salvo over the Winter Palace had started the Russian Revolution in November 1917. Recently I participated in a conference commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution in the Mirror of World Left... Read More
The ‘Traitor of the Year Award’
Introduction: While the Right faithfully supports the policies and interests of its ruling class supporters, the Left has systematically betrayed their political platform promises and deceived its working class, salaried employees, small business and regional supporters. Historic reversals have happened in rapid succession by Leftist leaders, including greater oligarch control over the economy, more dictatorial... Read More
Prologue: In 2004 I wrote Brazil and Lula: Year Zero (Edifurb: Blumenau, Sao Paolo 2005), in which I presented my analysis of the Lula-Workers Party (PT) regime in Brazil undergoing a Grand Transformation with the first stage represented by the PT’s incorporation into a government apparatus led by of bankers and exporters (the agro-mineral elite)....

The Politics of Self Destruction
Introduction: Over the past year, what appeared as hopeful signs, that Left governments were emerging as powerful alternatives to right-wing pro-US regimes, is turning into a historic rout,which will relegate them to the dustbin of history for many years to come. The rise and rapid decay of left-wing governments in France, Greece and Brazil is... Read More
[A response to Seumas Milne’s article in the Guardian: “Slur of Anti-Semitism Used to Defend Repression.” [1] I In civilised New York, a girl eager to brush-off an insistent admirer does not have to be rude. She slips him a phone number to call, and there a recorded message informs him, “The person you are... Read More
When George Soros, one of the biggest and most rapacious speculators in the world, published a book calling into question some of the most destructive aspects of speculative capital, left intellectuals raced to reproduce his quotes as evidence that indeed \”global capital\” was a threat to humanity. The curious part of this scenario is that... Read More
To understand the present and future of revolutionary politics requires an historical analysis of the previous half century. An historical survey of the Left is a complex project, recognizing the uneven development of struggles in different continents, the contradictory tendencies, the achievements and limitations, the short and long term legacies, the relationship between economics and...
