Well, they're relevant to the topic, what's your problem with them?

The center for the stateless society is fairly consistent with the anti-state anti-capitalism and the anti-capitalist anti-statism. But they're also quick to conjure Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Marx and Engels, David Graeber, M.I.T. professors, transhumanists and democrats. And things like that.

And there's also that big, big elephant in the room... that pale petty bourgie transhumanist pedant with an empty stare under his ovoid glasses. Hmmmmms yes that guy.

I think it's great that they have a unifying idea and a loose band of authors who approach it from different perspectives, some with their own idiosyncracies.

Regarding cybernetic communism, I don't find it convincing at all, but I think it's respectable that they invited a person who genuinely tried to articulate that, and debated her on this. It's not like Aurora Apolito is a regular contributor to C4SS or anything. I mean, people in the anarchist mileu often accuse each other of sectarianism, C4SS online "symposiums" are anything but that.

Sure, the C4SS symposium thing is a pretty good format. I wouldn't accuse them of sectarianism.
