Of course. War is easy, peace is hard.

Everyone wants simple answers to complex questions.

Just because violence is justified, doesn't mean it's the beginning and the end of a peaceful and rational future.

All the posturing of manarcho-brocialists is child-like right-wing nonsense.

We are here to do what the system does not. First in the list is the psychological needs of the people. The root of psychological needs is compassion.

Ask any manarcho-brocialist what is the function of compassion to humanity, and they won't know.

Compassion is the root of justice.

If your essentialist idea of the world begins and ends with: "RAWR!..SMASH THE SYSTEM!", either grow-up or get out of the way.

This is about a maturity, not of age, but knowledge of humanity and critical thinking.

Solidarity is based in compassion, and there will be no success without solidarity.

Anarchists are conditional-pacifists. They ultimately want a peaceful world, but understand they'll need to fight on behalf of the oppressed in order to achieve it.

You don't get by with one hat. You need both the peace hat and the war hat.
