The Boogaloo movement has a new strategy
Members of the anti-government movement are calling for cooperation with left-wing groups that were once adversaries.

A new era of strange bedfellows?

Members of the  anti-government Boogaloo movement   are adopting a new strategy to achieve the end of the US government, members tell Al Jazeera.

Adherents are calling for cooperation with left-wing organisations – previously considered adversaries by some in the Boogaloo – to foster a mass withdrawal from the political and economic systems overseen by the United States government.

Strange read. So they want to do away with wage labour and privatize everything.

Want to get away with not paying taxes...

Just sounds like the republicans in congress now...

The closer term would be Libertarian...

Bizarre, aligning with left-wing groups and doing away with most everything.

Surprise!  Libertarians are liberals.  Establishing a society without government is a far-left ideology.  And the Boogaloo Bois are far-left extremists.  But mainstream liberals don't want to hear that.

Agorism isn't anything new.  Essentially agorism is supposed to achieve maximum freedom and maximum democracy by removing government from the social and economic spheres of activity.  A more intrusive government certainly wouldn't increase freedom or expand democracy.

What mainstream political thought considers the far-left of the political spectrum, most notably represented by various forms of socialism, are also attempting to remove the Federal government and replace it with something quite different and far more intrusive.  What the mainstream considers the far-right and far-left are pursuing the same goal of removing the Federal government.  in reality there are two far-left extreme political ideologies pursuing the goal of removing the Federal government but differ on what will be put in place once the Federal government has been removed.

The TEA Party (or far-right extremists) and Democratic Socialists (or far-left extremists) are both attempting to undermine, subvert, and weaken the Federal government.  Once the Federal government has been sufficiently weakened then there will be a struggle to impose opposing political ideologies onto the country.   

There are two ways to weaken the Federal government.  One way is to starve the government.  The other way is to bloat the government.  Both approaches results in the Federal government becoming unsustainable with inevitable collapse under its own weight.  But achieving the collapse of the Federal government will only be the beginning of the struggle.

What to do?  Why, nothing.  Until it is too late.

Sounds like a nihilistic approach ... good luck to you.

Nihilistic?   That seems rather obtuse.

The way our liberal politics works is to do nothing until things to become too-big-to-fail at which point it is too late.  Extremists seek opportunities when the bubble finally bursts and what is too-big-to-fail cannot be saved.

You, of course, know better than that. So why are you saying it? Interesting question. 

A society without a government is anarchy or libertarian, not liberal. There are of course conservative or far right anarchists and libertarians. It is known as anachro-capitalism.

How is anarcho-capitalism different than anarcho-socialism?  

A more intrusive government cannot expand freedom and democracy.  What is interesting is that what the mainstream considers liberal involves government imposing restrictions on freedoms and suppression of individual exercise of rights.

In my opinion, about the only difference between people like the Boogaloo Bois and Antifa is the name. Both groups have morphed into and/or represent the very ideals they claim to hate so much!
