I'd like to read an accelerationist theory that's not closet fascism, please. Even tankies like the Soviets were on the contrary for economic rationalization, and that's partly why the Soviet bloc failed (i.e. no mass production-based economy, ergo can't compete with the economic strength of the West). So which kind of socialist would like to push the mega-machine forward without being some transhumanist neofash like Thiel, Musk, or something?

His whole gimmick was always sectarian... At the popularity peak of End:Civ he went on world tours, for fuck's sake.

Anarchism ain't about "illegitimate authorities" you know?

I agree that discussing f2f is the ideal approach. Usually these people look or are too busy to discuss any fundamentals. They appear to find it boring or too fancy.

If it's not when they use the same formula as response, that...

"yeeaaaa, contradictory I know, but necessary compromise n shit, as we gotta build a bigger and stronger opposition movements through dominant institutions blablabla"

i.e. entryism as a form of social empowerment, where actually this is only a faint cover for their own preservation of status and privilege as they dance from one office to the other, in between playing the radical activist game. Not sure there's anything worthy to discuss with such dishonest people who're carefully covering their self-interest with a pretend radical imagery and narrative.

I'm talking more about people being deprived of important resources that meant something to them irl, due to Covid measures that, while looking good on the surface, are hypocrite and used to hit the weaker aspects of their lives (while you know, stuff like Walmart and car dealers are still in business). Not complaining about not sending people to work... it's a benefit that there's been much less work.
