big words... hopefully you're composting the bread and not just throwing it out

From Anarchytube

Decleration of War on Breadtube in favor for the creation of IRL media cells / collectives / affinity groups.

We need to all take immediate action to negate the recuperation in social anarchist / socialist / leftist communities. We must not be under illusions that any politician, bread-tuber, party, mass political organization will be at all helpful. We are reproducing the very structures that we purport to be against, yet in all seriousness we dont have time to mope around in this late capitalist collapse hellhole. Fuck your boring politics, fuck your corrupt politicians (Bernie, Corybyn, Lula, etc.), lets do something with our lives.

“The Greatest Purveyor of Violence”: Black Rose Statement on U.S. Aggression Against Iran

From Black Rose Anarchist Federation

Black Rose Anarchist Federation / Federación Anarquista Rosa Negra unequivocally condemns the U.S. assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Iraq. This is a provocation and an act of imperialist aggression that adds to a long history of U.S.-led military and economic violence in the Middle East, including the recent crippling sanctions which most severely impact poor and working class Iranians. This assasination has every possibility of escalating into a large scale armed conflict — something that would undoubtedly lead to the immiseration of millions in the region. 

An Anarchist Analysis of the Impeachment Crisis

From It's Going Down

In this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast (originally recorded for Pacifica Radio), we present a discussion and analysis on the evolving impeachment crisis. Fundamentally we ask if we have a dog in this fight, as the Democrats, who have spent years advancing and helping to fund Trump’s drive toward war, his growing attacks on migrants, Muslims, and the poor, and his massive transfer of wealth into the hands of the elites through his tax cuts, are now pushing for an impeachment inquiry over totally unrelated matters.

Some notes on the spread of morality and sacred cows

Humorless, self-righteous, intolerant, cringe-worthy. Ten years ago these words would have aptly described the Christian Right. Their very serious allegiance to silly ideas like God and patriotism made them an easy target to mock and troll. But now, said labels bring to mind awkward privilege confessions and the moralistic tone of social justice-oriented Leftists. What’s happened in such a short time to cause this total reversal?
