Turn the grounds into community gardens, the buildings into aquaponics or hydroponics pods.

Lock up the bourgies and cops in them and leave them to rot.

Poetic justice.

Review the cases against everyone imprisoned there, and release the people who are innocent. For example, if they're in there because they smoked weed, or stole food from a grocery store, or robbed some bourgeois business, let them go. If they're in there for rape, keep them there. Decide on a case-by-case basis. Arrest and imprison all police officers who we know have killed someone unjustly, then put them on trial as soon as the courts are refactored. Do the same for the CEOs of major corporations. For the rest of the cops and the petit-bourgeoisie, they should be made to attend lectures explaining how capitalism works, and how they were oppressing people. Some will be convinced - if we can tell that they're convinced and not faking it, they'd be allowed to return to society. If they aren't convinced, they would still be allowed to return, but not be allowed to have a job as a police officer or manager, respectively. Start refactoring the prison system so it's not just about punishment and isolating people from society, but about rehabilitation. Prisons and the police will wither away as the need for them withers away.

Gives me the heebie-geebies, this post does

you have such an odd sense of when the system is fallen

it's fallen when your vangaurd has power?

No, only after the 'withering' is when it has fallen

By "the system," I assumed they meant the capitalist system. So, yes, once the proletariat has taken power, "the system" will have fallen. Oh, but that's right, anarchists call for the downfall of capitalism and oppression, but then relentlessly criticize any actual effort to destroy capitalism.

Well, they're not, really. What I meant is that every time a communist makes a sensible plan for what to do after capitalism has been overthrown, anarchists always criticize it, and call the communist who made it a capitalist. Yet, anarchists never seem to have a plan for what to do after a revolution, besides "let everyone do their own thing," which wouldn't last a month. So long as the bourgeoisie exist, some form of transitional state will be necessary.

Why do you think people are incapable of killing bourgies without a state to do it for them?

I'm not an ancom, but they do have a very detailed map of the world they want to build, so I think that's just a myth that they're not 'sensible', and incapable of organizing. Catalonia during the Spanish civil war proved that anarchist society has no trouble getting off the ground, at least until MLs form a pact with the fascists to slaughter everyone for being too free.

I’ve always wondered if there was a way Catalonia could’ve survived after the MLs partnered with the fascists. I consider myself an ancom, but I wonder how would you prevent a huge government, say the US, from purposefully destroying it with soldiers and police and all of that nasty stuff.

It wouldn't have been hard back then, the anarchist militias were incredibly effective and well organized. Nowadays the US will spare any expense to kill a revolution though.
