“listen if we have a liberated zone whose population is 90% white American and 10% indigenous, and if we all agree to ‘no states’ and to respect the autonomy of those indigenous nations (even though we have a set vision of this land for ourselves), and if we ignore why fascists seem to be fascinated with the idea of this society, then everything will be fine in Cascadia. Absolutely no conflict of interests to be heard of in our great forest utopia.”

love this post because it seems to ignore that fascists have been present in “Cascadia” for far longer than the 80s (Washington state was one of the main hotbeds of the Klan as early as the 20s for instance, & Oregon was one of the states that literally barred black people from entering the state as well as being where the Californian genocide was kicked off), but also, less importantly that Cascadia isnt a biome. that isn’t what biomes are

The logic of empire: the u.$. imposes sanctions on Iran and breaks a major deal unilaterally in the morning, it provides firearms and political support to the genocide of Palestinians through their Israeli client state in the afternoon, and it wrecks havoc and disrupts the peaceful re-unification process in Korea in the evening.

Solution? Death to u.$. imperialism and its lackeys.

As expected, the u.$.’s government is set on following a course of action that is openly hostile and deliberately counter-productive so any agreement or summit between the u.$. and the DPRK results in absolute failure, thus becoming means to reinforce anti-DPRK narratives and bolster colonialist forces in Korea. The DPRK, its government, party, and the working masses have several times voiced their opposition to such “model”:

if u just ignore the fact that every single ML state ever formed was just reintegrated into the global capitalist system and that current ML(M) geurilla struggles have been going on for decades and are stagnant and not going to win then this criticism may make sense.

Sorry the republicans didn’t have 800 miles of Spain to retreat across

how many more hundred years before this debate is resolved guys

When people stop trying to use military success to prove that their ideology was right all along. Very much trial by combat logic

This isn’t about military success but the ability to actually survive capitalist encroachment. The decentralization of production, military and political command, etc. has consistently led to rapid failure, yet such actions are still today widely advocated by anarchists. On that topic, it’s an interesting choice to paint the anarchist faction of the Spanish Republicans simply as the Republicans as a whole, especially considering how those decentralized actions of the Spanish anarchists harmed the entire war effort, contributing greatly to the eventual victory of fascism.

It’s not a coincidence that the Naxals, KPRA, NPA, CPC, Bolsheviks, TKP-ML, Viet Minh, PFLP, 26th of July movement, BPP, ELN, EPR, MRTA, INLA, GRAPO, LANC, ETA, etc. had survived (or are currently surviving after) years into decades of encroachment, sabotage, invasions, assassinations, etc., often succeeding in their overall goals, yet the list of anarchist insurrectionist groups, guerillas, etc. to last more than a few months can be counted on one hand and none of them succeeded in any of their goals!
The few which are typically claimed by anarchists, such as the
EZLN or YPG, aren’t even anarchists themselves, merely having non-dominant anarchist
factions within them!

It’s not difficult to see who survived being outmanned, outgunned, sabotage, etc. and who didn’t. It’s more than clear what the overall trend has been. The failures of “authoritarian communism” have been educational failures, giving us years worth of experience to learn from, showing us what has gone wrong and what hasn’t, what to do and what not to do, and how to adapt to changing material conditions.

The same cannot be said about the history of anarchist projects, which failed to survive the same obstacles, and often even a fraction of the same onslaught and encroachment, their mistakes being the result of core parts of their ideology.

It’s important to point out that the formal end of the Korean War, and even the chance of reunification, doesn’t solve all the problems in the peninsula. North Korea still locks people up in brutal labor camps, and South Korea is marked by various forms of inequality. A reunified Korea under capitalism (and it probably will be capitalism) still leaves the Korean people subordinate to bosses and politicians. 

This doesn’t mean the end of the war isn’t good news, or that relaxed tensions between the North and the South aren’t desirable. But we need to keep the bigger picture in mind, and continue to support radicals in the peninsula if we’re ever going to have a free society.

Do you expect to be taken seriously when the article you link to as evidence of “brutal labour camps” argues that there is a “labour camp” roughly the size of Los Angeles (which is
1,302 km²)?

The same article that actively cites Amnesty International, a well known agency of u.$. imperialism that played a major role in fabricating false details to justify the invasion of Libya and Iraq. Have we forgotten about
Nayirah’s testimony?

Once again global north anarchists prefer to peddle false internationalism and solidarity, remaining true to the following image:

if you call yourself a communist or a socialist you really should not be watching porn at all, especially if ur a man attracted to women

theres a high prevalence of underage actors, revenge porn, rape (james deen being the most well known recent example of this), & actors who dont want to be there in porn and from a viewers perspective its really hard to tell if this is present or not. additionally, loads of porn, especially on the big free websites (pornhub, redtube, that hamster one) gives the actors little to no compensation with most of the revenue going to the website & producer. it can also be really hard to get stuff taken down from there, so many porn actors can end up with videos of themself they may not even have wanted shared so widely up for anyone to see and recieve no money at all for views.

additionally, a lot of the most popular categories of porn (lesbian & teen/“barely legal” being the best examples of this) are pretty clearly rooted in awful misogynistic fantasies whether it be homophobic fetishisation of gay women or just straight up nonce shit around young women. this normalises and propagates harmful ideas of these 2 especially vulnerable groups &, especially wrt teen porn, is just flat out creepy as hell. if ur into that please examine why because i guarantee its not healthy.

& thats just the issues surrounding porns production & availability, for want of better terms. porn also has an objective negative mental effect on peoples mental health and especially how they view women, and this is amplified among men attracted to women. even among children as young as 11/12. where i live, there has been a rise in young boys raping their younger sisters that at least seems to be directly caused by the viewing of violent pornography.

not only does all this propagate harmful & misogynistic views among men but it can cause severe damage to women as well, especially through men emulating what they see in porn, especially violence, in how they treat women both in normal public life & more often during sex. more and more young people nowadays are learning about sex from porn, and i hope u can see how thatd be harmful without me explaining it.

i dont have access to a computer right now but i will edit in sources for all of this when im home, so tomorrow or tuesday.

OP, really wish you would have added something about how porn also contributes to the fetishization of WOC and trans women with categories such as Latina, black, Asian, interracial and transsexual.

yeah this is 100% true, apologies, i should def have added this too & thank u for bringing it up and reminding me

a relevant example of this recently if anyone is wondering is the massive popularisation of “refugee porn” in Germany, most of which contains either arab women or sometimes white women using ‘brownface’. big TW for this obviously:

What is the anarchist answer to anti-anarchist sentiment in an otherwise anarchist society ? For example some people wanting to form a state ?

Would like answers that aren’t links to 300 page books.

in a word, “nothing”

Aili, that’s like asking “what’s the communist answer to anti communist sentiment in an otherwise communist society, for example, some people wanting to form capitalism?”

The answer would still be “nothing”, for the same reasons.

Counter revolution ? Civil wars ? The communist answer has never been nothing.

I feel like in a properly functioning anarchist society there would be very little chance of that even being an issue

How ?

I feel like they’re under the impression that the material conditions of communism will just appear out of nowhere, and that people will suddenly, on a widescale suddenly understand how to run a functioning communist society, with no counter-revolution, because the bourgeoisie will just stop fighting to regain power or something.

No, we are saying that once the ruling class has been abolished, it won’t just magically reappear somehow.

It doesn’t magically reappear, throughout history there have been civil wars, counterrevolutions, and other attempts at grabbing power from more powerful countries. Like this is fact. It’s something communists have always struggled with.

You are talking about situations where ruling classes weren’t abolished, so it has nothing to do with your original question, which was regarding a situation where the ruling class has been abolished.

It isn’t enough to say that ruling classes “have been abolished.” Unless this hypothetical anarchist society instantly exploded the heads of every reactionary on earth when it was formed the abolition of class society is an active process riven with military and social struggle. Even assuming anarchism survives its violent establishment(which it never has irl), how does it deal with military aggression? How does it deal with saboteurs or with people who want to break from anarchism, competing factions within the populace, etc. which there have been in every revolution?
