are all his writing saying so little with so many words

Every single thing he writes feels like it was a High School assignment with a minimum word count. Its terrible. I much prefer Ocalan for that reason.

I'm assuming he wrote it before communalism as he seems to be fine with individualist-anarchism.

Decades before, I believe.

I was bombarded with people telling me there was no point in taking action in Britain because the Chinese were killing the planet.

This is still a common opinion to find; and perhaps the most frustrating one, since its not a denial of climate change nor a liberal fix, but a declaration that they just don't give a shit to stop it.

may withdraw only with the approval of the confederation as a whole

This seems to me it holds the same exact connotation of the 'social contract' used by liberals historically and today- one is opted in by default, and may only opt out if everyone allows them to.

Most shootings are either based in racism, class struggle, or mental circumstance; this goes from armies to cops to school shooters. Most school shooters in the US wouldn't have picked up arms if American culture tackled racism instead of embracing it, if the world were more equal for all, and if people weren't so often ridiculed and bullied.

The answers to all of these, as usual, can't realistically be found in liberal or conservative politics, so I suppose the generic answer I can offer is 'socialism but not the brocialist kind' as to give a world less likely to push people to these things. Of course, I also think gun violence shouldn't be tackled specifically, but instead violence itself regardless of the tool.

These probably aren't the best answers I can give, its not a topic I've specifically researched and I'd need to hear more not-liberals give a stance on it before I declare something definitively to be what I think is right.

In March, a report said the government had bought a total of 140 purifiers to ensure that officials, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, could breathe easy.

Oh, good. I was worried the rich might need to face the results of their actions for a moment.
