tankies: maybe the anarchists were the real fascists the whole time

If you had to pitch an "umbrella term" for anarchists, autonomists, ultra-left, left comm, and all the other "non-authoritarian leftists" of the world, what would it be? I always say "anti-authoritarian communism", but that's like 12 syllables man.
I’m very happy to call myself a libertarian communist, but I’m sure there are some under that umbrella who wouldn’t like it so much, and for some you mention, like Bordigist leftcoms, it doesn’t actually fit at all…doubt there’s a single term everyone would actually agree on but libertarian communism is as close as it gets imo
