I selected the ideas around the middle class in working class spaces because that was the part of the article I was interested in. So far you have ignored that and keep going on about bits I didn’t bring up. Mebbe I should make myself clearer. Just because I referenced select pieces from that article doesn’t mean I endorse the whole article. I should have said that right at the beginning I guess. Btw the article is an argument against the use of identity politics to solely form your movement

this is what you said: "Class is all that matters to Marxists, not anarchists", I misunderead as class matters to marxists not anarchists so apologies, but I'm glad to see you think class does matter. So you see class not as an economic relationship then, but just an identity? Genuine question. As for clown...meh...I been called worse

I deliberately left the bits out that you are talking about as my concentration was what they were saying about the middle class in working class spaces, so I honestly don’t know why you are bothering to bring them up. Class doesn’t matter to anarchists? Really? How else can you have a criticism of capitalism without talking about class.

"We barely understand how this pandemic came to be and what it really means, so of course the vaccine, in all its glorious simplicity, would present itself as a beacon of hope amidst all the confusion. Unfortunately, it also presented itself as the perfect vessel for promoting authoritarianism on a global, national, community, and interpersonal level"...yep, and that's why all anarchists should be against the mandates and passports. This is on the thales website: "So-called digital ‘vaccination passports’ will play a key role in enabling citizens to access all manner of services and will act as a precursor to the rollout of mobile digital ID." https://dis-blog.thalesgroup.com/identity-biometric-solutions/2021/07/27/how-digital-id-can-help-citizens-access-government-services-from-anywhere/

that's a strawman. I haven't called for government. I used an article about the middle class in left-wing spaces to suggest this is also a problem in anarchist circles. Anarchism historically is a working class movement born from the socialist movement. Chumpsky isn't an anarchist and I don't think he has even ever claimed to be one.

I’m an anarchist. I adapted that from a piece by leftists. I think the argument stands for anarchist circles as much as the left. Is the anarchist movement not a movement for the working class and should be by the working class?

More anti-capitalism being sold to us by capitalist organisations (this added $19 billion to Netflix's stock value). Of course, their anti-capitalism always blames a few bad guys (the VIPs). Any alternative to capitalism is never presented. Just a few reforms and tweaks here and there and everything will be just fine. Everyone is anti-capitalism these days, even the capitalists, and it’s just a lifestyle dead end that leads to people thinking that liberty and equality begins and ends with fair trade coffee, rainbow bombs makers and POC better represented in boardrooms.
