"I'm starting to think that modern anarcho-communists in particular aren't too interested in anarchy. They often put communism first, the 'anarcho' part is then merely used to distance themselves from authoritarian/statist stuff." - I'm glad someone else thinks this, I've been thinking it for a while now. Where I live anarchism has come to mean a mish-mash of mostly reformist ideas, with some vague notion of building dual-power through reformism. Overthrowing the state is never mentioned, nor is the word revolution.

Headline sounds good but nothing will be taught about the social and economic origins of the climate crisis. The children will be taught that alleviating climate collapse is about making lifestyle changes, conservation, recycling,and the like. All noble stuff in itself, but there is nothing about making real change, and is pretty much about teaching the children that capitalism is still their friend and everything will come right with the government's stated aim of being carbon neutral by 2050

"The women I work with are no better off at the moment under Labour than they were under National. This isn't about politics - it's about a neoliberal system that drives people, has driven under-resourced people, into poverty and made sure that they stayed there."...I would like to dedicate those two sentences to all the NZ anarchists who at the last election told me voting for Labour was a way to help people
