The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point, however, is to change it.

Anarchism and Practice

I have detailed my problems with anarchism listed at theredmilitiamanarchive but I will say this:

1) I think I could work with them more easily in IRL organizing than any M-L/Maoist on here that won’t organize at all.

2) damn they have a cool fuckin aesthetic… i mean don’t get me wrong but they have some cool ass aesthetics

3) they might be theoretically incorrect but I don’t think that matters so much from a practical standpoint in the first world… theory without practice is nothing, practice causes theory and not the other way around. #dialectics

Of course when I admit this I am talking about “left” anarchism (I hate having to make that pseudo-distinction) and not anarcho-capitalists/primitivists. I really don’t care for stirring up drama on here anymore because I don’t think that will go anywhere. I have theoretical differences with anarchists but I also have many comrades with a left-libertarian bent, who I organize with. I will be posting more on theoretical stuff but as for my problems with anarchism, I think I have said enough and I think that debate is a dead horse that has been beaten since like… 2012.

Anyways, I’m not really interested in racking up muh internets points for debating people on the web, I wanna get shit done. Lets start encouraging IRL work more than senseless arguing on the internet. I’m not saying we should all hold hands and sing the Internationale on here, I’m just saying there should be a greater emphasis on what you actually *do* and sometimes that means working with people you don’t agree with 100% of the time.

Currently I am organizing with Garden State Resistance, a non-tendency leftist activism networking collective from NJ. I am also looking to start an SDS chapter at my school.

So open question to everyone: what are you doing to organize a struggle?

  • Communists on tumblr:communism is good and no one ever gets hurt by it
  • people in communist countries:run across fucking mine feilds to get away

sure western kids get into communism, read lenin as a valid theorist, praise the soviet constitution, and reblog the ~soft communism~ jokes.

but there has to be some rule of basic decency where along with that you also have to read solzhenitsyn, shalamov, nadezhda mandelstam’s memoirs, and a poem without a hero.

then I will take you seriously
