How is Libertarian Feminism Different from Other Feminisms?

No system of government can hope long to survive the cynical disregard of both law and principle which government in America regularly exhibits. Under these circumstances, no legal guarantee of rights is worth the paper it is written on, and the women who rely upon such guarantees to protect them against prejudice and discrimination are leaning on a broken reed.

Libertarian Welfare Queens

Originally posted on Attack the System:

By MK Lords

Lately, I’ve been getting tired of the same old scams coming from the same old people in the libertarian “movement”. Many OG libertarians I’ve spoken with agree, so I thought I’d compile a list of popular but parasitic libertarians. It turns out libertarians and ancaps are some of the worst capitalists ever. Despite raging against tax payer supported “welfare queens” there seems to be quite a lot of libertarians fighting for the ever depleting capital flowing from the chapped teat that holds the earnings of fellow libertarians.

Libertarians employ a variety of tactics to spread their message, but a tactic I must disagree with is begging for money from people in your movement for stunts that are utopian at best and ineffective or dangerous at worst.

Why Elliot Rodger’s misogyny matters

Why misogyny matters-We Hunted The Mammoth

When a white supremacist murders blacks or Jews, no one doubts that his murders are driven by his hateful, bigoted ideology. When homophobes attack a gay youth, we rightly label this a hate crime.

But when a man filled to overflowing with hatred of women acts upon this hatred and launches a killing spree targeting women, many people find it hard to accept that his violence has anything to do with his misogyny. They’re quick to blame it on practically anything else they can think of – guns, video games, mental illness – though none of these things in themselves would explain why a killer would target women.

In the case of Elliot Rodger, who set out on Friday night aiming, as he put it in a chilling video, to…

“You want to know about my motivation, don’t you? Well. It is the kind of sentiments anyone would have when he actually sees refugees face to face, begging with tears in their eyes. He just cannot help but sympathize with them. Among the refugees were the elderly and women. They were so desperate that they went so far as to kiss my shoes, Yes, I actually witnessed such scenes with my own eyes. Also, I felt at that time, that the Japanese government did not have any uniform opinion in Tokyo. Some Japanese military leaders were just scared because of the pressure from the Nazis; while other officials in the Home Ministry were simply ambivalent.

People in Tokyo were not united. I felt it silly to deal with them. So, I made…

To Strive and Fail, by Voltairine de Cleyre

(Nick’s Notes:

This is the second short sketch of Voltairine’s tha very much relates to the tyranny of work. You can find the first one here. And there will most likely be another one sometime in the near future.

As with The Sorrows of the Body Eugenia C. DeLamotte, author of Gates of Freedom: Voltairine de Cleyre and the Revolution of the Mind had something to say:

The connections among sex slavery, wage slavery, and ideologies thatdivide the soul from the body are made even clearer in “To Strive and Fail,” a sketch of a young woman’s exhausted efforts to play the zither late at night, after her grueling work is over for the day. She fails and quits, realizing that her life, like that of her father and grandmother and all the conquered, “silent generations” (450) beyond them has no room for her deepest passions. In a sense her wage slavery…
