One side is Nazis
And we’re still having this debate?
One side is Nazis
And it’s Antifa you hate?
One side is Nazis
They ain’t here to play it cool.
One side is Nazis
Blowing dog-whistles and playing the fool.

One side is Nazis
And it is violence they preach.
One side is Nazis
It ain’t nothing to do with freedom of speech.
One side is Nazis
They’re looking to end some lives.
One side is Nazis
It’s happened countless times.

One side is Nazis
No matter how they change their name.
One side is Nazis
No matter how they hide their game.
One side is Nazis
And if they think you pose a risk -
One side is Nazis
Your name will be at the top of their list.

One side is Nazis
Their views are open and clear.
One side is Nazis
Let them talk, see what you hear.
One side is Nazis
And we’re still having this debate?
One. Side. Is. Nazis.
And it’s still Antifa you hate?■

The Dawn of Everything | Review

We have a tendency to view people in the past as simply performing their historical roles in social evolutionary theory, rather than as intentional, political actors who were just as (if not more so) diverse, conscious and smart as we are today. This book takes a different perspective, with radical implications.

Tracksuits, Trauma, and Class Traitors | Review

‘’We need to abolish the White supremacist in us, the ableist, the patriarch, the transphobe, the parts of ourselves that still think, feel, act and organise as if some humans are worth more than others, that some bodies matter more. This is collective work, this is done in vulnerability with one another, and with an openness to making mistakes, speaking the worst of ourselves and trusting in “our” class that we can find new answers to old questions.’’

The Leaderless Revolution | Review

This book is for those new to anarchism as a political theory, but who are dissatisfied with the state of the world, and yearn for something better.

Desert | Review

Desert has become something of an online sensation since publication by an anonymous author in 2011. It starts from the quite plausible premise that we will not be able to limit climate change in any meaningful sense; that runaway heating is inevitable, that large sections of the globe will become uninhabitable. As this happens, human populations will shrink rapidly due to wars, malnutrition and the vulnerability to disease that these bring. It is not an optimistic view of the future. Humanity will not be able to pull itself together to do anything about it. Unsurprisingly, it has developed a cult following amongst Nihilists and anarcho-individualists.

The End of Tolerance | Book Review

The End of Tolerance was written by Arun Kundnani twelve years ago – the book now seems to serve as some kind of eerie foreshadowing, or horrific prologue to where we are now.
