with its toxic groupthink bureaucracy, work-fetishism and authority-formation.

Don't forget the romanticising of bygone eras, like the Russian revolution, or the Spanish civil war, or the poll tax riots, or anything that happened before we were born. Everything was better in the good old days.

The reason the 'left' is so fucked is that a lot of people call themselves the 'left' but they are anything but that

Or maybe the reason the left is fucked is because leftist ideas are irrelevant in the 21st century? Who do you think are the 'real' left?

the actual most valuable jobs we have--for example, teacher--have never in history been well-paid.

School teachers are worse than bankers. At least bankers have a sense that their work is bad for people; school teachers think that they're saving the world when they're shouting in a kid's face.

Feral Faun? Sounds like a Forest Authoritarian to me!

Fun fact: In one of those inexplicable cosmic coincidences, 'Faun' and 'Wolfi' were both nicknames I gave my child, long before I ever heard of the anarchist.

It is not about trying to prescribe a way of life for an imagined place and time

Are you against the revolution, comrade? We have a word for people like you. And a place - the labour camp!

Beautiful write up. Could this be the beginning of another anarchy101 article?

It's either:

  1. Living without hierarchy, here and now.

Or

  1. Banning books, telling people who they can and can't talk to, calling people out, calling people fascists, winning social capital on anonymous internet forums...
