"But anarchy president, I just want to feel safe!"
Well now that's too bad buckaroo, because from now on, you're gonna see the face of God every time you go to the grocery
after the revolution, when I'm anarchy president: Due to new safety procedures, all interior surfaces of motor vehicles must be covered in a variety of knives.

A! on nihilism
"That impossible task set I share with you is the closest thing I would put forward as a recommended practice. A world-weary rebuilding of the very reasons we should do things together at all. A practice I am myself incapable of participating in because I have been broken by the same things as you. My mind is no longer limber enough to learn a new language. My heart is too scarred to do something so honest with a group of new people and too experienced to do it with the monsters I surround myself with (for other reasons). To go deep enough to subvert the conditioning and violence of this world is just impossible enough that I can imagine the kind of person who would attempt it but I have no idea what will result, even in a best case scenario."

just as liberalized democracies removed regicide as a viable option to destabilize the existing order, decentralized technologies are more robust and therefore by default more resistant to social change
people who claim that good texts or ideas are better with obfuscated wording and jargon to force some level of investment to engage with them are just seeking ways to delude themselves into feeling smarter and/or cooler
any Revolution possible in this world, even an "anarchist" one, would suck
things like antifa are popular on the left because it's easier to advocate physically attacking literal fascists than it is to interrogate the ways institutional and infrastructural racism continue to benefit you, despite the latter being far more impactful than chuds will ever be
"degrowth" is anti-civ for people who want to defund the police
all positive projects are coping mechanisms. there is no path from "here" to "there", so all truly anarchist positions are destructive.
