Red Liberty Manifesto (0.1a)

The political attitudes of this blog, Red Liberty, can quite easily be divined from its name: Red (socialism) Liberty (libertarianism). The libertarian socialist tradition of course is very diverse and historically significant.

Against War With Iran and The Language of Statecraft in Geopolitical Discussions!

I have a problem with the language inherent in geopolitical discussions. “America did that” “Russia says this” “Iran did that”. Countries are not conscious entities, and rarely in using such terminology do we mean the actually existing people, even the will of the people in that country. We speak of states and the will of …
