A Woke Capital Administration

With the election still playing out, the contrast of spirit and behavior between the two political tribes have been an interesting juxtaposition to view. The right is split between the very upbeat but upset at obvious fraud within the system Trumpists, and then the faux right pushing for a return to normal. The left is…

What’s The Matter With Whites?

With an election somewhat behind us, there are always post-mortems. It is best to hold off on sweeping analysis until all votes are tabulated and posted.

Reconceptualizing Political Economy with Nitzan and Bichler’s Capital as Power

Submission by Joel Davis After so many decades of consistent losing, the American Right has been conditioned into a defensive posture, largely concerning itself with apologetics for the classically liberal principles they perceive progressives to be violating. Many of the core tenets of classical liberalism and therefore contemporary conservatism express themselves in the logic of…

Chasing the Light – A Review of the Oliver Stone Memoir

By JJ I confess to being a major Oliver Stone fan; a devotee of his DVD commentaries, interviews, and the two excellent biographies which have been released (by James Riordan and Matt Zoller Seitz, respectively).
