Third “yellow vest” protest in France defies government crackdown
The third Saturday protest held by protesters, clad in yellow vests to show their opposition to French President Emmanuel Macron and his anti-worker policies, spread across France. In downtown Paris, the protesters faced an unprecedented police crackdown, the most violent since May 1968, when police assaults on student demonstrations triggered the French general strike.The movement is rapidly developing into an international political protest against social inequality, the high cost of living, and the policies of austerity and war across Europe.

OP/ED

Slavoj Zizek: Racism is alive and well in both Europe and Israel – with different victims
First, it would be interesting to learn how the percentage of those with a negative stance towards Jews compares to the percentage of those with a negative stance towards Muslims and Blacks – just to make sure that we don't find some racism unacceptable and another racism normal.Second, one should raise here the paradox of Zionist anti-Semitism: quite many European (and American) anti-Semites just don't want too many Jews in their own country but they fully support the expansion of Israel onto the West Bank. So, how do we count them?This brings us to the key question: how do we measure anti-Semitism? Where does the legitimate criticism of Israeli politics in the West Bank end and anti-Semitism begin? Let's explain this through some further observations.

The mass protests in France: A new stage in the international class struggle
On Saturday, 100,000 people took part in a series of mass “yellow vest” demonstrations throughout France against President Emmanuel Macron’s anti-worker fuel tax hike, in the most significant mass protests in the country since the May-June 1968 general strike.These events are a critical turning point not just for France and Europe, but for the entire world. Suppressed for decades, the eruption of social protest proclaims the reentry of the working class onto the stage of world history. The class struggle is again asserting itself as the driving force of historical progress.

A Killer Dies, a Teacher Lives: George H.W. Bush v. Noam Chomsky
The obsequious praise of the life and legacy of the now deceased mad-dog killer George H. W. Bush (1924-2018) on the supposedly liberal and left cable networks CNN and MSNBC this last weekend was really something.Some of this historical ass-kissing was practically comedic. I heard the power-worshipping “presidential historian” and occasional plagiarist Doris Kearns-Goodwin fondly recall getting stuck in the Bush’s Kennebunkport toilet. Daddy Bush graciously broke the bathroom lock with a hammer and then told Kearns-Goodwin, “well, at least you write well.” A special memory!

Jeremiah Walker

Having been a libertarian, the common argument is that it was actually the governments fault by moving towards a gold-exchange standard by Keynes advice at the Genoa Conference rather then keeping with a gold standard and Roosevelt made the situation worse with his "socialist" programs. Yes, even in a market crash caused by instability, a loss in confidence in the economy, and investors pulling out of the market en masse because of such a loss of confidence and instability, Keynes and the governments "socialist" policies somehow are to blame. Believe me, when you're a libertarian and a crisis occurs, the first thing you'll look for is any government interaction or deviation from "free-market economics" as the source of the problem or as a perpetuation of those problems. A purely right-libertarian society could be formed tomorrow and any market problems that occurred in it would be chalked up to what limited government existed, crony capitalism, or "outside and internal forces" until the society was pushed to being reformed to fully ancap, leaving only the accusation of "outside and internal forces" left (statists, socialists, the unemployed, other opposing governments, etc.).

Libertarianism of the hard ancap variety isn't really a thing outside of Burgerland and maybe Brazil. It's like Zoroastrianism; pretty marginal on a historical scale and not worth thinking about very much.

I think it's a thing in the U.S. because Americans in particular grow up their entire lives hearing that socialism is a failure and a disaster, but the world (and their own country) is still really dysfunctional and messed up, so they in this ass-backwards way come to think the problem is not enough capitalism; and that the capitalism we have is not real capitalism. It's kind of like Trotskyism.

Anthony Gomez

It’s a big thing in he US because billionaires pump endless funds into propaganda networks, “think tanks” and dipshits like Paul Ryan who drill that retarded crap into the heads of burgers.

Jace Turner
Jace Turner

That's very true, but I mean more the hard ancap shit. I say it's like Trotskyism in the sense that Trots believe the socialist societies of the 20th century "weren't real socialism." My response is yes, they had problems and failures but it had never been tried before.
The difference is that the ☭TANKIE☭s screaming about traitors and revisionists are the descendants of those were aligned with people who ran half the planet for the most of the 20th century. Ancaps, like Trots, have never been in power anywhere. Milton Friedman types did, but Murray Rothbard saw him as a statist. One of the odd and fun debates to read between them is Rothbard's view that Friedman wanted to achieve a kind of egalitarianism through capitalism, while Rothbard was like "egalitarianism!?!?"
