This is about wars that are personal and political. Angela Keaton is the executive director of the Randolph Bourne Institute and the director of operations at Antiwar.com. She formerly produced Antiwar Radio with host Scott Horton. She wrote about her life and world view for The Daily Bell.
I was joined by two old friends and colleagues, the eminent historians Barbara Fields of Columbia University and Adam Rothman of Georgetown University, who in my mind are two of the most brilliant analysts of the history and politics of race and racism in the United States. We begin with a discussion of their recent Dissent magazine article that laments the inattention given to white victims of police violence, recounts the history of the cross-racial coalition in the 1850s that ended slavery, and calls for building a non-racial coalition now to end police killings. The second half of the conversation focuses on Barbara’s classic work on the history, uses and mis-uses of the concepts of race and racism. This episode makes my life feel whole.

In this AMA episode hosted by Landry Harmon, we discuss my history of hating teachers, why libertarians are hostile to postmodernism, the dishonesty of Black Lives Matter, my ever-growing dislike of democracy, the Christian basis of left-wing politics, how liberalism became morally “good” among American elites, why no one cares about Trump’s genocidal war in Yemen, how China eliminated poverty in the U.S., the loneliness of political dissent, why the right wing despises my politics, the fight between the identity left and the Marxist left, why I don’t date people like me, the uniqueness of American white guilt, my favorite Unregistered episodes, the heroism of Michael Bell Sr., why recovering addicts are the best interviewees, the anxiety of free-market capitalism, the therapeutic effects of Zen mindfulness, why a person born into wealth can never be an American hero, and how Barack Obama is a child of the CIA.

In November 2004 Michael Bell Jr., a blond-haired and blue-eyed 21-year-old son of an Air Force lieutenant colonel, was murdered execution-style by police officers in Kenosha, WI. I talked with Michael Bell Sr. about his phenomenally successful 16-year campaign to reform police departments across the country.

A few weeks before her first appearance on Unregistered, Lily Forester’s husband John Galt was shot to death at their home in Acapulco, Mexico. They had been on the run from felony cannabis charges in Ohio and had fled across the border into Mexico, where they established a life among a small expat anarchist community around the Anarchapulco conference. In the 18 months since then, both Lily and her life have changed radically. She sat down with me from her new home in the mountains of central Mexico to tell the story of her journey and transformation.

The ongoing US wars are as far from the news as ever, which is why I brought combat veteran and antiwar journalist Danny Sjursen onto the show. We discussed his road from a working-class Staten Island family of right-wing cops and firefighters to West Point and then leading scout platoons with Armored Cavalry regiments in neighborhoods across Baghdad and in the especially volatile Kandahar Valley in Afghanistan.

The former gay porn star turned podcaster, public intellectual and academic spoke with me from his new home in Dublin to discuss the puritanical effects of the lockdown and social distancing, mental illness and “anarchy of the mind,” the lesson we both draw from the life of our late friend Michael Brooks, and the meaning of Conner’s passion for the occult. 25% off all CBD products at: https://palomaverdestore.com/33% off the Unregistered Combo Pack: https://palomaverdestore.com/product/unregistered-combo-pack/Use discount code “RENEGADE” at checkout.

Curtis Yarvin, also known as “Mencius Moldbug,” became nationally infamous in 2017 when it was alleged in the media that he had a “direct line” to Steve Bannon in the White House, was a leading intellectual of the “deplorables” of the rising “alt-right,” favored monarchy over democracy, and might be a racist. In this interview … Continue reading Unregistered 116: Curtis Yarvin →
