Love Wins, Actually (Laurie Penny)
From (http://www.newstatesman.com/2016/06/love-wins-laurie-penny-soho-vigil-orlando-shooting-victims)
It’s been a hard few days. The headlines were bleak enough already before Sunday morning, when the news hit that 50 people had been slaughtered in a gay club in Orlando. That morning, I woke to the sound of my housemate sobbing.
She was frightened, and angry. At that point, nobody knew who the shooter was: we only knew that he was probably a man, and that he hated gay people enough to walk into a club with an assault rifle and start mowing people down. We found out later that he was Muslim, and a wife-beating misogynist. We found out even later that he was, in all likelihood, a man with one foot out of the closet who messaged men on dating sites and was a regular at that same night club, Pulse. Shame, bigotry, self-hatred. A culture of fear that responds to progress with intolerance. That’s where violence comes from. One of the places.
I put the tea on and listened to my ho

3 Reasons Christians will lose Transgender Debate
(From http://religionnews.com/2016/05/14/3-reasons-conservative-christians-will-lose-the-transgender-debate/)
When LGBT rights first became a national issue following the Stonewall Riot of 1969, conservative Christians responded with a disastrous campaign against gay and lesbian causes. Christian leaders cited pseudo-science claiming homosexuality was a “choice,” or worse, a mental disorder. Preachers regularly promoted the idea that AIDS was God’s judgment on LGBT people. And money began to flow into “ex-gay” Christian ministries that promised to make LGBT people straight, but ended up making them suicidal instead.
When it comes to conservative Christianity, it seems the more things change, the more things stay the same. A national debate on transgender rights has rapidly progressed in America, and predictably, conservative Christians have once again elbowed their way to the front lines. Christian leaders make speeches, tortors preach sermons, and politic

Socialism Misunderstood
(From http://leftist-daily-reminders.tumblr.com)
Reactionaries, generally-speaking, have a fundamental misunderstanding of how socialism works. The idea is that there needs to be a massive bureaucratic state to impose constant wealth redistribution, essentially acting as a liberal philanthropist who will toss larger scraps down to the masses, all so that the “natural consequences” of “freedom” (inequality) can be undone by a paternalistic guardian figure. This just goes to show how difficult it is for the overwhelming majority of us to think outside a capitalist bubble; this economic system has become as natural to us as the air we breathe and the water we drink.
So what am I getting at? Well, reactionaries think of socialism as anywhere between Scandinavian welfare capitalism to bureaucratic 1984 dictatorship – just never as a system that involves the active democratization of social institutions and resources. Both social democracy and Stalinism operate

10 Reasons Why Elections Fail
From (http://www.anarkismo.net)
Why can’t the 99% simply vote in a government that acts in their interest and not that of the 1%
At a simple level parliamentary elections sound like the ideal way for the mass of the ‘have nots’ to use their numbers to overcome the power and influences of the tiny number of have’s. Occupy talked about this division in the language of the 1% and 99%; a crude approximation that does reflect a reality where the number of wealthy decision makers is actually very tiny, indeed less than 1%. So, why can’t the 99% simply vote in a government that acts in their interest and not that of the 1%?
Let’s start off by acknowledging that this is not through lack of trying. The fight for the full franchise in the 19th century was very much caught up with the idea that once everyone had the vote a government of the working majority could be elected and that would redistribute wealth in the interests of all.  It was not just a larg

Journal
Against fascism. Defending life.
Yes, this is a journal where I rant about politics.
This website is not really political stuff, but the social background where all we interact is the basis of the political system. So I felt the moral urge of sharing this:
I'm against the far-right because they attacked gay people.
I'm against the far-right because they attacked trans people.
I'm against the far-right because they attacked latinx people.
I'm against the far-right because they attacked black people.
I'm against the far-right because they attacked feminists.
I'm against the far-right because they attacked a mosque, a place where people pray, with innocent people praying.
I'm against KKK in the name of human dignity.
I'm against KKK because they are terrorists.
I'm against KKK because they do KILL people.
I'm against racism because my skin is brown and that isn't a matter.
I'm against nazis because they would kill me for being gay.
I'm against nazis because they would kill my relatives and my family.
I'm against racism i

Just a query - currently writing an Irish Alt-Hist and was wondering did you think anarchists/socialists could have had a bigger impact in Ireland?.

I mean there were characters like Captain Jack White etc. and what do you think would it have taken to change the Church's interference in Ireland...sort've toying with the idea of the Hierarchy excommunicating Mick Collins et al
