There are pockets of youtube that remain untouched by fash trolls, I have a self sufficiency channel that occasionally got superficially political, but as long as I never mentioned left/right or specific ideologies and kept things general, no one bothered me. People support our principles, just not when we put labels on them that they've been conditioned to fear.

Disable comments and voting, focus on how the videos make you feel and watch the views increase.

I think a practical guide to being an anarchist would be cool. How can we even start embracing anarchy when the majority of us are entirely reliant on a capitalist system?

I'd say that you shouldn't disable comments, as that might alienate your audience. I'm pretty sure there's a feature where you can leave comments up to your own approval.

you seen submedia ? Their format is great. The channelzero website would be worth sharing your channel through for more exposure

Are you considering doing a Raddle Channel? That'd be cool.

I could but I don't know enough about the site to really set it up, you can hit me up in dms and explain it if you want.

Watch everything from Contrapoints and take notes. Especially on her production skills.

YouTube is proprietary software and a centralized platform controlled by just one company, you'll be in contradiction with anarchist principles. You will only help Google grow. Why not use Mediagoblin or something which works like Bitchute. Or you could even make your own website and post your videos there, it's not very difficult.

What do you want the show's format to be?

And what kind of content?

More details please!

I am not exactly sure, but it would be more of a combination of informative videos on anarchist theory and my own critiques and thoughts on things. It would be influenced heavily by my own tendency though, so post left anarchy would be a common theme.

Lession #3: This right here is called Resignation. It is a symptom of Defeatism. Don't do this.

Is there another platform you would recommend?

Successful Media requires tremendous exposure. Yes, YT is full of trash and not open source but it is the biggest, ubiquitous media platform. Just because the right wing occupies a large swathe does not mean we should simply resign to fate and let them have it. The reason they infest the platform is largely because our lack of presence there. The left ought to become acquainted with occupying space that is not familiar, or even hostile. We must begin reclaiming territory. A winning strategy would be to post the videos in All The Platforms you can. Also making it available as a podcast would increase exposure as well.

I actually think YouTube has space for Anarchism. As someone to came to the politics fairly recently, YouTube was indespensible. YouTubers like anarchopac espeically helped me get a good sense of the of the history as well as the theoretical basis of Anarchism. if you are interested in creating informative content I think it would worthwhile to do it there, just disable comments.
