first anticiv was deemed genocidal by anarcho-leftists, then nihilism, and now antiwork.

And you can't have feminism because then men are alienated from leftism and turn to the right. And you can't have vegans because then people with lettuce allergies feel demonized. And you can't have migrants because then fascists build up anger to seize power. Can't upset that neoliberal apple cart in any way because it could risk destabilizing the system that gives them all their privileges.

What anarchist wants to run society?

Ikr, the "if you can't beat them, join them" mentality is pervasive. And of course, they assume the first part without trying anything at all and then just capitulate.

Let's locally mass produce yarrow, boneset, and bugleweed! The problem is, you don't have to work for them.

Actually, though, here is the little shimmer of an argument: so many "modern" medicines are actually plant-based poisons-- colchicum, belladonna, yew, sweet clover (actually fungal), et cetera. And they have some very foolish flaws: they don't even use yarrow, or bugleweed, or any of the countless genuinely effective herbs, but instead try to replace some of them with substitutes that don't work nearly as well.
