Tributes to Mark Elston


Comment - 

There are some very nice tributes to Mark here.

Mark’s main website,, is still online. I’m not sure how long it will remain up. A lot of his thinking and contemplations are preserved there: spanning everything from religious contemplations and musings on society to the dark days of the Covid lockdowns.

The podcast I recorded with Mark and James is also still on YouTube here. I actually have over an hour’s worth of additional raw audio of our conversation somewhere, which I intend to post to YouTube as soon as I can find it again.

James has also published a tribute to Mark at Crimes of Empire here.

If anyone remembers Mark or wants to say anything about him, please do leave a comment below.

I’m not very good at this sort of thing, so I hope Mark would be okay with what I’ve shared about him.

More generally, for anyone reading this: I know this probably doesn’t need to be said, but if you’ve got a friend or relative you haven’t heard from in a long while, think about reaching out, getting in touch, just to see how they’re doing.

But here’s to Mark. You’re already being missed, brother.

I don't believe October 7th was a false flag. Firstly, it deprives the Palestinians of agency. Second, it has been a PR disaster for the Jews. They have gone full mask-off. Regardless of Hamas' purported origins, they're doing their job in the only way they can, by forcing the world to notice. The "false flag" narrative's primary purpose is to feed the narrative of Israel as just another "White supremacist colonizer," as opposed to Jews being the most dangerous and imminent threat to all of humanity.
The Israeli military had become so complacent, they haven't done preparedness drills for over 6 years. Their conscripts are literally issued diapers. Most of the Israeli deaths were caused by "friendly fire" and crossfire. When the attack was happening, an IDF commander called an airstrike on the kibbutz (and be aware, a kibbutz is not a cute hippy farm commune, it is an armed, pseudo-military forward outpost meant to secure and hold illegally acquired territory), then the commander called an airstrike on his own base, getting killed in the process.
A tactical overview of Oct 7th
IDF killed their own. Consistent with the "Hannibal Directive," they will kill their own to prevent them from falling into Hamas' hands and being used for leverage. Lied about 40 babies. Admits shelling kibbutz and killing their own.
