What makes you think antifastists are not also involved in other political action? Like, the surveillance state has gotten especially bad the last ten years. All manner of authoritarians are just dying for yet another excuse to expand it. Those in my country who spoke out cirka 2008 will unfortunately be handing out lots of I-told-you-so's pretty soon.

The reason fascism might seem like less of a threat is precisely because people are engaged in antifascist action. The effectiveness of nipping that shit in the bud is evident in how for example the alt-right is currently falling apart.

I might just ask you the same: what are you doing to address the rise of the surveillance state? Or the cable-TV-fication of the Internet?

In that case you're preaching to the choir. I doubt you'll find anyone on here in favor of state surveillance (it's always used to repress leftists) or not in favor of net neutrality (the repeal thereof being an obvious greedy cash grab)

Actually, while I have you on the line so to say, do give /f/freeasinfreedom and /f/privacy a look
