    Why I think anarchists should not abandon all left-wing mass movements

    Introduction There exists a way of defining left vs. right as a spectrum of political philosophies in which anarchism happens to be on the far-left. I think it would be good to use and promote this definition because… if having one more opportunity to advertise our elemental philosophical...

    Life’s Lessons & Abolitionist Politics

    A few people liked an essay I put up here a while ago called 'a love letter to failing upward' which generated some deep responses, so here's some more of my rambling thoughts. How getting hurt as a child lead me to have a strong scepticism of unjustified authority Pretty obvious outcome I...

    Bill Cooper and 90s right wing politics (where we got the phrase "wake up, sheeple")

    if youre american, right wing politics in the 90s are extremely worth looking at. at the time the us government considered it the number one threat to national security. neo nazis were not prevalent in right wing politics, they were still considered a radical fringe that nobody really agreed...

    Anarchism Around The World

    I made a an article which displays a series of interviews, recorded for a documentary, never finished by it’s original producers, which hoped to show anarchism in all it’s forms around the world today and in history. But, I think it succeeds even better at that task as a video catalogue for...

    I found this Situationist documentary from the 80's that was a fun waste of 40 minutes, so here ya go.

    The politics of parenting

    It's gonna be a long shot; I haven't been the best parent for any of my 3 children and at this point and with their ages I gotta work fast to leave some sort of legacy. I have considered, perhaps selfishly (idk) asking my daughter to come live on the street with me. It's really the only way that...

    Dealing with mental health and anger during 2020

    Hey all, I've been trying to develop my career over the past few years so that I am able to have a work/travel balance. There is this work schedule in my field called 'career-seasonal' that you can work between 6-10 months a year and you essentially get laid off for months at a time, and have a...

    Losing Democracy

    Oh man... What are we going to do when Trump is acquitted by the Senate and is given free rein to stomp on the rights of Americans, take away our entitlements and promote more hate?

    The U.K. elections

    Y'all. I had hope for the cause. I am losing hope rapidly. Boris Johnson has just won the majority parliament in the UK, once again. This will mark the majority of the Allied Forces falling, after 75 years since WW2, into Nationalism. The entire reason why the UN was established after WW2, was...

    My trip to the Gaza Strip and Podcast

    Hey everyone. I've been going through some old footage, from my time traveling solo across the Middle East and North Africa, between 2012-2016, and I thought StP would be a good place to share and archive some of that stuff. For those who aren't familiar with the situation in Gaza, I won't go...

    Mail bombs to Dems and Soros? The cheese has slid off the cracker of society

    Not sure if correct subforum. But what the fuck is people's problem? Mailing fucking bombs to prove a point? Look, I get today's political scene is a bit contentious. People are shitty about something, and probably with good cause. Seriously though. What level of "fucked up" must one amass...

    An Interesting perspective

    So, today, a dude came into The Library to hang out and take a look at our selection of books. We started talking about politics, which inevitably progresses to the subject of war. I mentioned that I am a U.S. Marine Corps Veteran, and he asked me if I had ever read the book "War is a Racket"...

    Book Days of War, Nights of Love

    Beautifully designed A-Z of the totality of revolutionary youth politics. Sort of a Situ-inspired Steal This Book for everyday life, love, and how to live it. Heavily illustrated with photos, cartoons, posters, and other useful accoutrements for the new millenium. Believe the hype, and check out...

    A Continued Discussion of Identity Politics

    I felt that I risked derailing the "Matt Derrick is a Fascist" thread with a discussion that emerged on identity politics, so I thought I'd move my reply over here. Feel free to join in. Thanks for the engaging reply. Obviously, to forego the use of "mammals" and "amphibians" as categories is...

    Direct Democracy

    With the advent of the Internet the dream of Direct Democracy becomes quite a bit more believable, but if we talk through what that would mean I think we'd be eager to come up with something a bit more stable. This is a long one. By no means am I 'right' about this, I've just thought a bit about...

    My thoughts on A- Political beliefs

    So my personal thoughts on people who don't like politics or don't like getting involved in thier communities is they are highly privileged, there are people dying every day in the Capitalist state we live in due to dying in the cold or dying due to the lack of food. In this world, it's not...

    Anarchy is actually far right

    I see the attack on free speech in the US coming from the left and true liberalism moving to the right. There's a weird shift going on in america. College campuses are brainwashing the youth and it's crazy because I see a lot of socialist claiming to be anarchist. The whole thing is crazy to...
