Also lest anyone think I’m only dunking on Marxists and similar, anarchists absolutely have this problem too with some our big names. While important, I think we overemphasize the hell out of Bakunin, Kropotkin, Malatesta, and Goodman.
Like I am sorry but new authors exist, no one should be an authority on a anything, and “what Marx would think about X” is just an exercise in creative writing. Who gives a shit what some dead guy thinks about a think he never saw? What do people now think? What do *you* think?
Or succinctly “don’t provoke the police while opposing them” is an oxymoron
someone said this to me recently and oof i felt that one in me soul
mention of violence
If you're feeling upset by all the footage circulating of police attacking protestors and others, there is one useful thing you can do: donate to the GoFundMe for the Bristol protestors' legal costs.
It looks like they're well on the way to their £15,000 target.
As ever: if you can't afford to donate, don't feel bad about it! This is something to do only if you can.
