I'm skeptic to rojava, because there are many similar movements in history, which were supported from western leftists because they thought it was a genuine leftist venture. I mean for example, Khmer Rouge or maoist china in the 60s/70s. But afterwards these movements revealed their true, reactionary nature and the western left were deeply disappointed.



Since I believe that the fight against the capitalist system is mostly an ideological issue, it would be quite easy to build a better society when all minds are empty. I'm not a maoist but there is a interesting quote from Mao Zedong: "On a blank sheet of paper free from any mark, the freshest and most beautiful characters can be written; the freshest and most beautiful pictures can be painted."

Yes, I was bullied too in school. One of the worst things I remember is, when one of my class "mates" set up my hair on fire. These experiences from the past are definitely responsible for the reason, that I'm a communist today. At first, I just wanted to destroy the whole humanity. But now, I want to change our societal system, so that people have no reason to behave like total douchebags. The marxist theory thought me, that the root of people's behaviour lies in the direct material conditions. When we change these conditions, we will change humanity itself. My hate to our system and our society has indeed a personal motivation.
