I’m an ML and I’ve been reading raddle a lot recently to try and understand you guys.
You seem incredibly hostile towards communism, with a die hard aversion to violence and whatever else you brand, ‘authoritarian’....
I was utterly perplexed when I saw someone ask what ‘tankies’ are and the most upvoted comment claimed, “Marxist-Leninists”....
There was even someone that was telling a newbie not to read Stalin.
So although our end goals are the same, the repulsive Trotsky-esque manner in which you thoroughly sabotage the revolution by painting MLs and fascists with the same brush makes left unity impossible. MLs aren't "tankies" or "state capitalists" or "red fascists", we're communists. We want to install communism, not capitalism. State capitalism is only a stop-gap measure on the way to communism.
Us communists are never hostile to you people like this, we never spread rumors about our comrades or call you secret reactionaries. It's completely one-sided and makes me suspect you are having your strings pulled by imperialist interests like the CIA without even knowing it. Who is even behind this site? Do you know? 9 times out of 10, anti-communist movements like Raddleme are psyops from the US government.
Okay, whenever communists discuss anarchism we do point out the idealistic nature of your ideology. I agree this is your problem, and I do tend to work to educate my anarchist comrades so they come to communism instead. But I'm completely civil about it and don't attack the human, only expose the flaws of the ideology.
Is left unity possible? The right is extremely united. From conservative rednecks to radicalized nazis, they all seem very close and void of the sort of infighting you see on the left (of which 99% is coming from anarchists and ultras).
I just don’t see how a revolution can happen if anarchist comrades would be the first ones to tarnish and sabotage the vanguard party’s actions. I don't see how the party can succeed with you all standing in our way and shouting us down.
I'm not even going to plead with you to strengthen left unity, I simply ask that you take a step back and stop actively opposing our push for revolution. You're only empowering the fascists by opposing communism.
