This is some fucking narrow thinking and writing, how you can support such a fascist stance and call yourself a libertarian leftist is beyond me. Fuck borders, fuck ownership of land. There are actual solutions to the problems we face, and they do not and can not involve crippled authoritarian shortsightedness.

I think the authors point is that getting white people to leave would move closer to the dissolution of borders and private property. I don't think that this is necessarily true at all, and the author doesn't really support that reasoning.

What makes you think the author calls themself a 'libertarian leftist'?

There's nothing more repugnant than 'libertarian' whites telling indigenous people "fuck borders, fuck 'owning' land", you're an 'authoritarian fascist' for caring that we took your land from you."

So much fucking whiteness in this thread, shit.

Yeah and that sort of gotcha doesn't acknowledge the fact that it's not simply "we took your land." For example, Alexander the Great "took" land when he conquered people but in many situations he largely allowed local forms of government and local customs to stay in place. Not saying there can be good conquering, just saying that "taking" land is only a very tiny part of the problem.

Western agricultural industrialist culture makes no allowances for non industrial cultures. The land isn't just taken, it's destroyed forever. As is native life. Everyone is forced to live as the invaders live.
