August 3, 2021

Saying Buh-Bye to Performative Anti-Capitalism

Poppy Coburn considers Extinction Rebellion comfy, aging posers doing little more than loudly petitioning the government for reform. That doesn’t mean the onetime Anarcho-Syndicalist (there still is such a thing) thinks climate fears are overblown. Far from it; as she explains in Unherd, the entire regime must be overthrown. Sometimes it helps to know what one is up against.

Bugging Out from More than just Bagram

In Canada we cashier our best military officers for sexual transgressions. The Americans should be so lucky. Down there, deadly derelictions of duty and the greatest loss of military equipment in history generate slaps on the back – as long as the commanders in question act woke.

Australia’s early colonization was driven by shiploads of wretched English prisoners, whose descendants at least gained their liberty and built one of the freest countries on Earth. In The Atlantic, Conor Friedersdorf chronicles the slash-and-burn destruction of liberty by the island-continent’s pandemic-panicked political class. Almost like they want to resuscitate the 18th century prison-island – using sinister 21st century tech and bureaucratic ruthlessness.

Biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy explains that the corporate world’s seemingly whole-hearted commitment to “diversity, inclusion and equity” arises not from moral conviction but cynical fiscal calculation. In City Journal, Daniel Kennelly interviews Ramaswamy about his new book, Woke Inc: Inside Corporate America’s Social Justice Scam.
