Yesterday (August 18, 2022), I had a new opinion piece run in The Hill. I wanted to share a longer version of that piece here at The Peaceful Revolutionist: Earlier this summer, former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang and former Republican governor of New Jersey Christine Todd Whitman announced the creation of a new political party. Vaguely-defined by design and explicitly “centrist,” the new Forward Party seems designed to bore and repel Americans. It’s hard to imagine a more uninspired message than the Forward Party’s
Very nice succinct analysis of the complete irrelevance of the left-right dichotomy that feeds the political and economic fictions of the corporate state.
It's nice to see an opinion piece from an anarchist perspective in a mainstream paper and interesting that you chose not to name that perspective in the published piece. It does make sense to me, as (1) anarchism is mostly understood as a synonym of "chaos" in the mainstream and not at all as a complex critical and ideological lens, and (2) anarchism, as a "brand," has suffered greatly in covidian times, with a large portion of "anarchists" supporting and even enforcing the mainstream corporate state totalitarian response.
