Reply to Best texts you know dealing with tankie bootlicking of Russia in relation to the war on Ukraine? by Tequila_Wolf
There're plenty of those (some of which you pinned in /f/ukraine), but do you mean criticizing the narratives regarding Russian-Ukrainian war, or maybe just their ideology overall, or what? I think it's hard to put everything into just one text. Alexander Reid Ross and Emmi Bevensee had some good pieces, among other authors.

They're trying again with Wagner presence, apparently with more success.

Thanks, didn't notice it.

The article is titled "America's post 9/11 wars" but the body says that "Savell does not attempt to apportion blame between various actors", which sounds like incredibly bad methodology to me. Incidentally, in what world is Syria "America's war"? The overwhelming majority of deaths was caused (and still is) by Assad's fascist regime and its Russian allies, including deliberate bombings of healthcare facilities, which the article mentions but doesn't mention neither Assad's regime not Russia responsible for them, despite the report itself mentioning them explicitly in this context. Or, say, Yemen - another complex war with multiple parties in which the U.S. plays a relatively minor role. The way it's framed is basically war crimes revisionism.
P.S. Why does this sub's description mention so many empires and just omits Russia?

I think it's great that they have a unifying idea and a loose band of authors who approach it from different perspectives, some with their own idiosyncracies.
Regarding cybernetic communism, I don't find it convincing at all, but I think it's respectable that they invited a person who genuinely tried to articulate that, and debated her on this. It's not like Aurora Apolito is a regular contributor to C4SS or anything. I mean, people in the anarchist mileu often accuse each other of sectarianism, C4SS online "symposiums" are anything but that.

Well, they're relevant to the topic, what's your problem with them?
Reply to Anyone knows any good critique of communism based from an individualist anarchist perspective? by SaintMax24
This may prove useful. It's a series of debates on the topic, including a lengthy essay on "cybernetic communism" and rebuttals to it.
As well as c4ss authors in general.

Reply to comment by Bezotcovschina in Huliaipole, the home of Nestor Makhno. A year on the frontline. by uanon
I mean, it would be one thing if this was a reaction to something like "here's an article on why national-anarchism is good actually" (it's not). However it's just an angry reaction to a documentary which has pretty much nothing to do with what black_badger wrote. Getting mad at old people in a destroyed town for not having a perfectly anarchist view of Makhno is a little weird.
Although I agree that Makhno became popular even outside of anarchist circles (and no it didn't start just in the past year, it's been a thing for a while) and sometimes there were attempts to appropriate him. I've seen even Islamists use his name lol (look up the Makhno group within Sheikh Mansour batallion).
