It’s been two weeks since Portland erupted over the news as THE city that opposes trump and his administration. The riot caused approximately one million dollars in damage, as well as costing the city’s police department $600,000. Portland has mellowed recently in preparation for the inevitable flag-burning and hell-raising of inauguration day. Currently several groups have risen to not only prepare for the impending fascist creep, but the harsh repression from the government that is in full force.

No One is Coming to Save Us: An Anarchist Response to the Election of Donald Trump

From the First of May Anarchist Alliance

The surprise victory of Donald Trump this past Tuesday has quickly presented people in this country (and around the world) with a vastly different political landscape than we had expected. We are seeing a rise in right-wing attacks as the far right is emboldened by the victory, much like what happened earlier this year after the success of the Brexit referendum in the UK. The incompetence and capitulation of the Democratic Party has forced many of its former supporters to recognize that the fight against the far right cannot be won by liberal electoral politics. This new reality forces anti-authoritarians of all stripes to rise to the challenge of building strong movements for working class self-defense in this new atmosphere.

Wildism: The Nasty End-Game of Primitivism

Recently we've seen a few newcomers to anti-civilization politics, from The Unterrified to Jeriah Bowser to some oddly liberal writers who blog in various places. But one of these newcomers, the wildists, who are closely connected to Ted Kaczynski, do not only exhibit the most dangerous tendencies of primitivism, they distill the reactionary politic into its most heinous concepts. In fact, they even embrace the term "reactionary." Because of this, I actually welcome the wildists. For a long time anarchists from non-primitivist tendencies have been warning that people like Zerzan and Tucker are playing with fire, and now we can finally see what the endgame looks like.

Don't Worry, You Can Sleep at Night

…and Being Able to Sleep Functions as a Symptom of a Greater Problem

No longer do the ideological extremes function as the ultimate threat to our livelihoods, yet many within the so-called anarchist milieu (or other radical-leftist currents) remained focused on defending themselves from such extremes as central tenets of their praxis. How do we prevent ourselves from structuring ourselves after scarecrows—mere shells of humans existing only as a response to a threat, perched in place against crows, against the Other?
