Not trying to be snarky or anything, but I'm actually curious: why do anarchists still engage with Reddit at all? Maybe there's value there that I dont see (cause I dont spend time there), but based on the posts I've seen shared here chronicling what looks like an escalatingly shitty scene over the past few years, it seems like little more than just a place to go and be disappointed at best, pissed off at worst. Am I missing something? Why do yall still interact with wack lefty reddit?

Heads up that Deep Green Resistance aka DGR, where this article is cross posted from (dgrnewsservice), is an openly trans exclusionary shitshow that works closely with out-and-out TERF orgs that target and harass trans people.

I dont expect everyone to keep up with lefty green niche politics, so I mention it here so that people who otherwise might not know can have a heads up. If you care about queer and trans folks, please steer clear of DGR and their bullshit. And please dont share their links/material/info.

You can find a basically identical service minus the terf bullshit at https://earthfirstjournal.news

Oh, Marvin. I want so badly to love this story, and I do in a lot of ways, but I can't quite fully embrace it. I love that he went after the banks and politicians, but his whole boderline (or maybe even overt) libertatian motivations leave a bad taste in my mouth that prevents me from fully embracing him as a heroic figure. Inspirational, no less. The podcast Love and Radio put out a pretty good episode a few years back about Marvin and his Killdozer.

Trying to save some rage for the weekend, though.

Love this.

As I was reading your post and this thread, I was scratching my head trying to figure out what reasoning shitty people could possibly use to turn this into a victim blame fest. Then I saw your examples....

The fucking nerve of these people to talk down to and belittle people who didn't vote. Like YOU'RE the naive one for not voting hard enough and they're somehow blameless and not at all naive for not only continually voting for these ineffectual fucking ghouls, but being duped by (or willfully ignoring) their perenial bait-and-switch bullshit. As if people who abstain from electing these fuckers are somehow ignorant or stupid, nevermind that these asshole seem to get duped every time.

But THIS elsction cycle will be different, little lady! And until then, I guess you can just sit and think about all the stuff you didnt do to counter a decades long concerted political operation propelled by a multibillion dollar machine. Hope you dont get knocked up between now and then!

“My employees were the victims in this case, not the plaintiff.”

That bullshit combined with the accusation of him "stealing other co-workers’ joy"...

I can just hear the party planning committee leader crying to the manager. How joy-robbing it must have been for her and all the other coworkers, inducing multiple panic attacks like that. Poor things.

But forreal, I hope that dude gets every cent of that settlement and then some.

It's my humble opinion that this flashy wanted poster isn't worth the space it takes up on the web. The state department and other feds have released similar wanted posters and held big spooky press events to flex their muscles and scare people they accuse of hacking, knowing full well that China, and in this case Russia, are never going to extradite their own nationals, especially state sponsored hackers, to the US to face charges. Seems like little more than propaganda to show that they think they know who to attribute attacks to and make it seem extra srs cause $$$.

That said, this seems like an extension of a growing and concerted effort by these alphabet bois to pay people to snitch. Kudos to whatever graphic designer they hired in the last year or so, though. Really stepped up the poster game.

Not sure how much of a read-through text either of these are, but two highly practical anarcho-friendly texts that come to mind are Ecodefense: A Field Guide to Monkeywrenching and the slightly less sabotage-y Earth First! Direct Action Manual.

Ecodefense is a little dated, but still worth a read, if for nothing more than inspiration. The Direct Action Manual is a decent reference that can help with ideas for interference beyond just ecodefense. Neither are page turners, but they're about as practical as you can find.
