Jewophobia Now

The most important takeaway here is that anti-Semitic thinking is not a problem of excessive radicalism, as ‘the New Anti-Semitism’ theory has it, but rather insufficient radicalism – the failure to think structurally about problems of capitalism.

On Natural and Femme Excess: An Insistence

To anyone who has been told that the only way you’ll be taken seriously, tolerated, allowed to do what you want, be worthy of love, is if you tone it down – look around you! The ugly, suicidal world is in desperate need, above all else, of your beauty and of care. Of aesthetics and healing. Ornament and communism.

The #PoliceCrackdownBill and the Fight Ahead

If we want to defeat the bill, we must make it completely impracticable as an enforceable piece of legislation.

Great Griefs: Notes on the US Election

Bidenfreude: relief absent the slightest joy. How better to make use of it than to consider what the fuck happened?

Acting as if one is Already Free: David Graeber’s Political Economy and the Strategic Impasse of the Left

Graeber’s _Bullshit Jobs_ was a best-seller, but its critique of modern work has only just begun to impact conventional leftist politics. The same goes for his major ‘theoretical’ work, _Towards an Anthropological Theory of Value_ – a more academic, but richly insightful, work. His insights should offer critical guidance to the Left, in today’s bleak political context.

Salvage Perspectives #9: That Hideous Strength

Salvage Perspectives #9: That Hideous Strength

Far more of Biden’s voters chose him on the basis of opposing the other candidate, than did Trump’s. Should the Democratic vote collapse, should turnout slide again, as seems eminently likely, particularly on the basis of this unenthusiastic foundation, it is not unlikely that a Trump-style candidate – if not Trump himself – could achieve a majority of the popular vote as well as an electoral college win.
