The reason anarchism is able to faster adapt to changes in society is we’re not burdened by orgs that are 80 years old and thinkers that are long dead.

When an org stops being useful, we leave. When an idea is not progressive enough, we make new ones.

It’s wild that State communists are still trapped in the ideological schisms of 100 years ago (Stalin vs Trotsky) or some org that pins itself to some similar figure, going to recreate revolt by exactly copying what happened in Tsarist Russia.

Even anarchists can be a bit like this with Catalunya in the 30’s or some other Kropotkin vs whoever debate, but at least we generally have the sense that capital, class, and identity change how we approach organizing and action.
