As Emma Goldman put it: "I want freedom, the right to self-expression, everybody’s right to beautiful, radiant things."

Yeah that line sucks. I didn't catch it untill reading it twice.

But yeah, what's with all that Rojava propaganda that's been doing rounds on anarchist subreddits?

It comes mostly from this acct: https://old.reddit.com/user/RevistaLegerin

Apocî Militant

Dissemination of the ideology on which the revolution in Kurdistan is based, in the ideas of Rêber Apo, the Democratic Confederalism. As well as sharing the news from the agency of the Kurdish Youth!

The big banks are the "state apparatus" which we need to bring about socialism, and which we take ready-made from capitalism; our task here is merely to lop off what capitalistically mutilates this excellent apparatus, to make it even bigger, even more democratic, even more comprehensive. Quantity will be transformed into quality. A single State Bank, the biggest of the big, with branches in every rural district, in every factory, will constitute as much as nine-tenths of the socialist apparatus. This will be country wide book-keeping, country-wide accounting of the production and distribution of goods, this will be, so to speak, some thing in the nature of the skeleton of socialist society.

A witty German Social-Democrat of the seventies of the last century called the postal service an example of the socialist economic system. This is very true

Why the hell do people take this guy seriously?
