I swear they're as bad as any fascist I've ever had words with, the way they'll gaslight and lie and slander to paint Marx as a saint reminds me of fascists that say Hitler never hurt anyone and the Holocaust was a hoax. If they'll work this hard just to pretend Marx wasn't racist, it's no wonder they'll defend every communist dictator that committed atrocities.

They repeatedly claimed it was a mistranslation when it's demonstrably not: https://archive.fo/h5mw6

They claim the Holodomor was a "nazi hoax": https://archive.fo/cVVXG

Called me a Terf, for calling one of them a brocialist after they called me "cunt":

They edited their comment to remove "cunt" and then claimed they never said it. Then pmed me to call me a gaslighter: https://coinsh.red/p/tankieshit.png

He didn't even snitch on the tankies ("leftists", ha). He wrote the list for his own purposes (a leftist keeping tabs on reactionaries that are loyal to Stalin and the KGB makes sense), and then sent it to his friend and told him "don't hire these red fash to work on Labor party propaganda. They're Stalinists". It's not snitching for a socialist to warn another socialist about red fash who are working for Stalin's secret police.

You're right. So what happens when the state is no longer there to enforce regulations? The smaller companies aren't going to voluntarily capitulate to the big mono/duopolies and stay out of the market, so the big companies will send in their private armies to literally kill the competition. It would look a lot like early America with Pinkerton mercenaries launching bidding wars to decimate the competitors of the highest bidder.

I'd argue much of corporate bureaucracy stems from their current forced accountability to the state. If they don't have to answer to the state with regulations, tax payments, health & safety inspections, anti-monopoly laws, etc, then they could largely return to the times of wild west robber barons taking whatever they want and killing anyone that gets in their way. Some aspects of bureaucracy would be maintained, like the corporate ladder hierarchy that gives executives incentive to stay with the company, but a lot of the stuff the state forces them to do now would be thrown out. Rightwing libertarians aren't exactly the biggest fans of bureaucracy and other restrictions to economic growth.

In a real life scenario, wouldn't modding/demodding be like membership of the group making the consensus decisions? I don't think it's that far removed.

How would you stop trash people from participating in the consensus process?

If horizontalism is only as good as the people who use it, how do you ensure only 'good' people use it?
