Manifesto

Architects for Social Housing (ASH) was founded in March 2015 in order to respond architecturally to London’s housing ‘crisis’. We are a Community Interest Company that organises working collectives of architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, urban designers, film-makers, photographers, researchers and housing campaigners for individual projects. Tailored to meet specific needs, these collectives operate with developing … Continue reading Manifesto

The Road to Fascism: For a Critique of the Global Biosecurity State (6. From Kitsch to Woke: The Aesthetics of Totalitarianism)

‘There is, of course, no reason why the new totalitarianisms should resemble the old. A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them … Continue reading The Road to Fascism: For a Critique of the Global Biosecurity State (6. From Kitsch to Woke: The Aesthetics of Totalitarianism)

The Road to Fascism: For a Critique of the Global Biosecurity State (5. The Psychological Structure of Fascism)

‘The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the “state of emergency” in which we live is not the exception but the rule. We must attain to a conception of history that is in keeping with this insight. Then we shall clearly realise that it is our task to bring about a real state of … Continue reading The Road to Fascism: For a Critique of the Global Biosecurity State (5.

The Road to Fascism: For a Critique of the Global Biosecurity State (3. The Fascist State and Human Rights)

‘Totalitarianism is not only hell, but also the dream of paradise — the age-old dream of a world where everybody would live in harmony, united by a common will and faith, without secrets from one another. If totalitarianism did not exploit these archetypes, which are deep inside us all and rooted deep in all religions, … Continue reading The Road to Fascism: For a Critique of the Global Biosecurity State (3.

The Road to Fascism: For a Critique of the Global Biosecurity State (1. The Return of Fascism)

I started writing this article in February 2022, and it quickly expanded into a short book, which I am still writing in April. I’ve decided, therefore, to publish its individual sections on this website separately as they are completed. This will inevitably entail me going back to and revising earlier sections as the later ones … Continue reading The Road to Fascism: For a Critique of the Global Biosecurity State (1.

Laws for the Protection of People and State

In May 2020, when I first drew comparisons between the state of emergency under which Germans lived through the 12 years of the Third Reich and the emergency period under which coronavirus-justified regulations were being imposed without parliamentary scrutiny on UK citizens in 2020, a member of the already forming cult of the COVID-faithful responded … Continue reading Laws for the Protection of People and State

The Camp as Biopolitical Paradigm of the State

The logical and inevitable outcome of our continued compliance with medically meaningless and illegally imposed restrictions on our human rights, like social distancing, face coverings, ‘asymptomatic’ testing, ‘vaccine’ passports as a condition of citizenship, ‘quarantining’ healthy people and mandatory medical intervention with experimental gene injections, is the camp. But what is a camp? Below are … Continue reading The Camp as Biopolitical Paradigm of the State
