Same guy was mansplaining to an anarchist recently that anarchy is pro-authority and pro-government

We really need more anarchists in r/Socialism_101.

Aren't the mods tanks?

There's at least one anarchist on the team. And anarchists are somewhat allowed.

Doubtful. There's an anarchist on r/socialism's mod team, but that doesn't stop them from banning anarchists at the drop of a hat. Anarchist mods on big tent subreddits always fall in line to avoid being purged. They barely qualify as anarchists what with all the shit they willingly eat.

Edit: yea it has the same mod team as r/socialism and the same anarchist.

I know there is this prevailing idea, primarily on reddit, that anarchism is a subset of socialism or at least in some way related to it. But haven't we gathered enough evidence by now, since Bakunin vs Marx beef through Kronstadt and CNT-FAI to Rojava, that maybe we shouldn't really be friends?

We shouldn't be friends with State socialists, sure, but as Malatesta put it:

freedom is not possible without equality, and real anarchy cannot exist without solidarity, without socialism.

Anarchy (1891)

Besides, even if we were to cut all ties with socialism, we should still be there just to push back against state socialists.

Socialism had so much potential in 1891. Shame about the next 130 years.

r/badphilosophy, a shitposting subreddit, has a 'no learns' rule and the mods, when they give a crap (which they rarely do these days), will ban you if you try to have a serious philosophical discussion there. This stems from their realisation that it's impossible to have a nuanced conversation about philosophy on reddit -- they mod also all other major philosophical subreddits, so they've learned this the hard way.

Of course, this is not true at all times, but very close to it. So keep it in mind next time you get into these kinds of arguments. You are only going to grow more and more frustrated with your attempts to convert redditors to anarchism. Reddit is not the place to do it.
