Big G Haywood 9 months ago (edited) This guy has a lot of "waking up" to do. Why would anyone identify themselves as a 'Libertarian Socialist.' This reeks of Synthetic Leftism. Anarchists need to understand that, in the long run, WE (themselves and Communists) all want the same thing - a classless, cashless, and stateless society. They just don't understand historical and material development and seem to think that we can just jump to this type of society immediately. This is a form of Left Adventurism.
2 weeks ago it's time to stop fucking capitulating in front of the capitalists by trying to appear unradical. To overcome their cultural hegemony we need to face it straight on and smash through it with a hammer of populism. people love audacity. if you're not going to show them communism is acceptable who the fuck will?
La Rose Blanche 1 month ago I think he tailors his message to the audience, so that it's simple and palatable to people that don't know of any existing socialism, and those that do are full of anti-socialist propaganda or aren't someone he needs to persuade.
TheFinnishBolshevik 1 month ago His message becomes counter-productive when he starts acting like Mondragon Corporation represents socialism and the USSR didn't.
Vladimir De La Klass 1 month ago @TheFinnishBolshevik I don't know man, he was asked about USSR, and he has all ways pointed that it was the fastest-growing economy in the world
Anglo-Irish Bolshevik 1 month ago Very good critique comrade. I saw the Hakim interview with Prof Wolffe and my comment then was, "Too much confused waffle."
712dal 1 month ago I love Wolff despite all of his flaws (which are well pointed out in this video)....he had helped normalize socialistic ideas here in the US, especially in a post Cold War era....
Bolshevik Cosmonaut 2 weeks ago The fetishization of coops is a mistake tbh. Having worked myself in a coop, I can tell from experience they are just as likely to become corrupt and fall into the trappings of your regular private corporations.
Hopper The Marxist 5 months ago The anarchist worldview is petulant in my view — they don’t understand circumstance, context, why democratic centralism is necessary, all they care about is BOOM revolution straight to communism — anarchism is perfect for American liberals it’s hyper-individualistic, it’s all about getting what you want right away it doesn’t understand power or how to manage complex systems, it’s as bizarre in its conception of individuals and freedom as ancaps.
Rochester Swift 2 years ago (edited) I'm always surprised at the naive view that so many anarchists have towards human instincts. In empirical terms of history, there is no way you can avoid power vacuums in rapid removal of state power, and a real stateless society would take generations to achieve.

^5000The mainstream imperialist media lie CONSTANTLY. Literally 24/7. And it's getting worse.
All of them do it: radio, tv, the newspapers, the movies. The internet. No exceptions.
The corporate Big Lie is pervasive and totalitarian. CBS does it. NBC does it. ABC does it.
CNN does it. FOX does it. NPR does it. And of course the NYTimes and WaPo do it.
Thousands of "diverse" voices telling you the same lies. Enough to convince anyone.
