"Asian American" has emerged as a category of carceral state protection at the same time the "Indo-Pacific" is consolidated as the primary theater of U.S. war making. In @ROAR_Magazine, I explore the contradictions of liberal antiracism and imperialism:

If your self-care is tailored towards making you more productive on the job, it's not self-care—just internalized capitalism 🙃

Palantir refuses to work with China, Iran, North Korea and many other governments. The company's CEO, Alex Karp, thinks companies that do work with these regimes should justify their position

Just so it's clear, Biden is not, in fact, supporting the proposal for a patent waiver as-is, even though South Africa has been pushing for it for over a year. Biden says he supports a patent waiver of some kind and negotiations, but is being vague & not aggressively pushing.

For the world community: this news is a reminder that this pandemic will not end until we have global vaccinations. The U.S. has already donated more vaccines to other countries than every other country combined. It is time for other countries to match our speed and generosity.

When you tether Palestinian liberation to U.S. electoralism, this is the kind of mealy-mouthed nonsense you inevitably end up with.

New York congressman Jamaal Bowman has made a number of wrong decisions on Israel-Palestine. But socialists should criticize those errors without driving him away from the Palestine liberation movement and the Left.

Instead of sharing vaccines and lifting patent rules, rich countries are trying to build fortresses. (But it won’t work.)

Herein lies the central challenge confronting projects of decolonization, from the Haitian revolution to Black Reconstruction to Zimbabwe today - the newly "free" are starved of resources while the colonial property owning class are time and again compensated with reparations

I don't think the R*ttenhouse interview on his "support" for BLM is the gotcha moment for the far right some think it is. But it does indicate just how compatible a superficial "DEI" speak is with white supremacist institutions and actions

And even then, these marginal social expenditures are framed as ensuring the U.S. "competitive edge" over its supposed geopolitical rivals—a kind of rhetorical military keynesianism in which basic needs are met only insofar as they are considered an investment in U.S. hegemony.

Please help Jiyoon, an undocumented domestic violence survivor, see her daughter again. Her abusive ex has refused to let her see her own child since September and she can’t contest it without the help of an attorney.

As the world teeters on the brink of climate collapse, the U.S. military—the world's largest polluter—is set to expand its global footprint to confront China. I don't think we talk enough about how the U.S. drive for a new Cold War is incompatible with having a habitable planet

The US Innovation and Competition Act is a massive piece of legislation purporting to make the US more “competitive” with China. But this $250 billion “innovation” bill is nothing more than a dangerous escalation in a multipronged offensive against China.

Congress is itching to pass a sweeping bipartisan package that threatens to enshrine a new Cold War, this time against China, and they’re counting on the American public’s inattention to get it through by the end of the year.

In response to the charges for the shootings in Atlanta at three massage businesses being released we have written this joint statement with @survivepunish. We took time and care to write this and want to reaffirm our position as PIC abolitionists.

90% of women in prison today for killing a partner did so in self-defense. () The vast majority of people in “women’s” prisons survived physical or sexual abuse before being incarcerated. () In other words, NYT is printing lies.

Liberalism offers a metaphysical understanding of history, in which the inherent goodness of state institutions and procedural democracy inevitably moves towards justice. It teaches that humans are bystanders of the predetermined arc of history, not agents of historical change.
