Considering former President Trump’s Florida home being raided by the FBI, I think this might be a suitable moment to point out to Republicans and right-wingers what they must learn from us anarchists. Of course, I am not the “traditional” anarchist. I don’t throw bombs, I’m definitely not a socialist, and I reject the progressive …

I describe myself as a reactionary. I’m not a fan of other people applying the label, because the problem with reactionary thought is that much like right-wing thought, there’s no universal understanding of it. I don’t think this is even a goal you would want to work toward, but Kuehnelt-Leddihn has some good definitions for …

Political realism is distinct from opportunism. The term realpolitik is not equivalent to political realism. One reason for this is …

Several events in the last few days have been amazing from a political realist perspective. First, we have the ongoing Twitter takeover by Elon Musk, which looks like it has finally reached the point where Elon will take control of the company and bring it private under his discretionary guidance. Second, we have Disney getting …

Why have we done nothing in Ukraine? This is a question that you’ll still hear from time to time. Barring the fact that Ukraine is now out of the media cycle—though, of course, if COVID showed us anything it’s that the regime can manufacture media cycles for both corporate and social media—this is quite a …
