Reply to comment by Styx in The Problem with Hierarchy by ziq

It's sad every convo about anarchy gets dragged into being yet another convo that centers red fascism. Like you need to talk about Marx and Lenin to explain anarchy.

Yeah what I find quite interesting, and I'm now also referring to Potkea's thread, is that as an anarchist you constantly have to address the fucking socialism and their theories and criticisms, and whathaveyou, but I have never seen this take place the other way around. I've never seen an actual, living-breathing, socialist even utter the a-word, let alone address Bakunin and Proudhorn's disputes with Marx. I don't go to the socialist reddit, but I doubt they are spammed as much by anarchists as our subreddits are by socialists of all colours.

The more I think about I cannot shake off the idea that we found ourselves in a rather toxic relationship and it might be for the best to cut our losses finally.

the day that I find an ML suggesting an anarchist piece of theory is the day that I will die.

Fuck tankies, but even the more 'reasonable' socialists don't generally care for what we have to say.

if they were actually ideologically consistent then they would be. what do they imagine is achieved after the withering of the state? or is it that they don't actually believe the state would ever wither so they don't need to trouble themselves over what would come after? 🤔

Does anyone care what anarchists have to say? Not even anarchists like other anarchists.

I care about what I have to say. I say all the things I'm thinking.

I would expect nothing less of an anarchist. Respect.

and lol. I said a similar thing to my friend when they were talking shit about me dropping out of school. As if I care about what the academics think of anarchy. Graeber's making the rounds and I'm getting Chomsky flashbacks.

My opinion > The universe
