“Marx ripped off Marxism from anarchists“

Literally correct, much of Marx is repackaged Proudhon which was published eight years prior to Das Kapital

And repackaged economics from Ricardo/Smith, neither of whom were anarchists but who are seemingly forgotten by most Marxists as having founded the labor theory of value.

That's like telling a Christian Jesus wasn't the original Messiah. Absolute blasphemy.

Did these boot-suckers forget Marx’s essays on India? You know, the part where he says that British imperialism is a-ok because it’ll bring industry to the poor, barbaric, backwards Indians?

No they just agree with it same way they agree with China and the USSR's imperialism.

I'm aware. Every one of the "anarcho-tankies" in that sub need to drown in a mcdonalds toilet.

That phrase alone makes me wish the internet was never invented lol. The amount of pissbrained dogmatic takes and pure LARPing in that thread is so pathetic. Thats what you get when you refuse to engage with any criticism of your own beliefs.

They're so fast to bring out the tired lines about "radlibs", "anarchism is just liberal individualism", etc. without actually critiquing or arguing against your essay.

Also the obsession with "vaushites" far surpasses any support for him, that I have seen anyways. It's such a waste of time to even care about him or his fanbase.

I don't even like to use his name. He's not an anarchist and doesn't deserve any attention.

Most of his audience, according to him, is just hate-watching. I believe it, to an extent.

the problem is, when you watch something enough, you start to subtly absorb its values/perspectives over time, because you're just absorbing one type of viewpoint over and over.

this is why it is important to produce one's own desires, and be careful about the media one consumes, and the social circles you hang out.
