Cryptofascism ansolutely does exist, but to label any and all anarchist tendencies tha fall outside of traditional industrial workerist leftism as "crypto-fascist" is some nonsensical Bookchinite/tankie (what's the difference anyway?) bullshit. When I talk about cryptofascism, I'm referring to people who try to hide their genocidal tendencies behind a thin veneer of a more "acceptable ideology" and in reality that almost always comes in the form of hiding behind the symbols of the dominant cultural hegemony. For a pretty archetypical example, my high school had a group called the "Constitution Club"which was very obviously made up of fascists and -- I shit you not here -- openly and repeatedly (and without consequences) " joked" at the activity fair, which occurred in the school and during school hours and at which pretty much every student was present, about "throwing communists out of helicopters" (which, for those not in the know, is a reference to an actual execution technique used by the fascist (and incidentally CIA-backed) regime of Augusto Pinochet in Chile against political dissidents, and which has since become a favorite dogwhistle for 4chan nazi types).

Didn't mean it literally in the sense of "we should burn down active nuclear power plants without regard as to the dangers of radiation," just more in the sense of, "we should militantly resist and sabotage attempts to expand and continue the nuclear industry" but yeah I can see how the way I phrased that wasn't great

Everyone always says "Don't do it, you'll never be the same."

Lol, the sheer amount of ignorance is kind of hilarious. Honestly with stuff like this it starts to get worryingly hard not to slip into obnoxious elitism. Like, it's fine to not know much about a subject (especially one as technical as TOR) but the degree to which people gobble up sensationalism and legitimately believe they know what they're talking about is astonishing

Just install the TOR Browser. Do bear in mind though, most of what you hear about the "Dark Web" is completely made up by people who know absolutely nothing about computers. It's a lot more mundane than most people would expect.

Thoreau and Tolstoy I guess? I'm not sure that Thoreau was exclusively pacifis,t and Tolstoy was a Christian, but that's what springs to mind.

I don't think so...? Not that I'm aware of at least. I can't find any way to do it. It's possible I'm wrong though, in which case my apologies. Still pretty new to the modding thing

Would just like to remind you that rule one of this forum explicitly forbids capitalist bootlicking. This is, at the absolute best, skirting the fucking line. I'll just give you a warning this time, but if I see more pro-capitalist bullshit from you the next step will be a temp ban.
