The mods all seem to be reds who are missing the trees for the forest. The sub shouldn't have let them appropriate 'antiwork' because of course that would suck all the meaning out of the term.

This is an anticapitlist leftist sub. It was based on anarchist texts and theory. Have more questions? Read the sidebar! Pay attention to the part labeled "FAQs." I promise they are not boring.

We have a lot of newcomers lately and it is hard to get everyone on the same page. This is definitely not a sub about winning capitalism so you never have to work. It is about tearing capitalism down so you never have to work as it is structured under capitalism.

Could have used your mod position to push people here and let me have a go at them. Now it's just an IWW recruitment drive at its most radical.

Syndies will never be antiwork.

Anyone reading this, feel free to put an f-droid app together and I'll link to it on the wiki if the code is clean.

The kind of people who ask for an app aren't the kind of people using f-droid tho, honestly.

I don't have a reddit account and can't make another because I have a static IP, so spread this around for me (twitter too - where I'm also banned).

If anyone mods r/antiwork, that's the perfect place to promote raddle with a sticky.

I think redefining wealth as life and life as a possession is only going to enable ancap entryism.

Wealth is having more money, property and possessions than most. If everyone were wealthy, the word would have no purpose. Wealth can only exist if poverty exists.

Idk if this was aimed at me also, but I'm sorry if I said something hurtful. I lack ability to discern when I'm being cruel, rude or inappropriate.

I try to avoid talking to you because last time I said the wrong thing you deleted your account and I felt bad about it for weeks

anarchist thing where people have extremely obscure definitions of words that u can't possibly find in a dictionary 

I agree with this. Like the weird way a lot of anarchists define democracy as "people cooperating" rather than the actual definition; it being a form of majoritarianism government. Or how they insist 'consensus' (people talking) is a form of democracy. Or that anarchy means ultra-democracy. None of it makes sense to anyone not steeped in half-baked breadtube ideology.

Doesn't apply to the words wealth or power tho. Those definitions are pretty universal. Power can certainly be anarchistic in some contexts: self-empowerment, power to the people, the power of love, etc. But in the context of "to strengthen a family's wealth and power"? That sounds like brandishing authority so you and yours can climb the hierarchy and improve your lots in life at the expense of others.

You can't realistically accumulate wealth and power without exploiting all the people you climb over to get the wealth and power. It requires domination, coercion and the near-constant othering and dehumanising of all the people you'd need to use to get ahead (because that's how the game you're maneuvering to win is structured).

Power and wealth can only exist if the powerless and impoverished are denied those ​privileges. It requires rigid hierarchy. And the wealthy and powerful of course then heavily invest their energy into maintaining their wealth and power and making sure all threats to their social domination and monetization of property and people are rendered inert.

​it is hard to do anarchy when you're permanently in survival mode, true. When you have nothing, all your energy has to be devoted to getting your next meal.

But it's even harder to do anarchy if you have everything and thus everything to lose.

idk comrade, sounds like an ecofash publication... since when are we concerned with desire? such a frivolous thing can only inhibit the productivity of the worker and thus stifle the revolutionary project
