#1 – Anarchism is meaningless
Never mind that 90%+ of people that call their selves anarchists are actually just closet (statist) communists, and never mind that a large proportion of those left are overtly capitalist, it has to be said that anarchism has been used as a label for such a diverse range of political ends, that as a political term it is now completely useless.

From Institute for Anarchist Studies - by Michelle Renee Matisons and Aalexander Reid Ross
For a book that advertises itself as a “shift in strategy and tactics,” Deep Green Resistance (DGR) has an overwhelmingly dispiriting tone, and is riddled with contradictions. While DGR provocatively addresses many pressing social and ecological issues, its opportunistic, loose-cannon theoretical approach and highly controversial tactics leaves it emulating right-wing militia rhetoric, with the accompanying hierarchical vanguardism, personality cultism, and reactionary moralism.

[We offer up to our comrades the following critique of the nihilist turn in communist and anarchist thought, in part because we find some of its appeal mystifying and some of its appeal understandable. We hope that at very least it will provoke some conversation among friends and comrades sympathetic to this line of thought.]

This text is less so a general critique of insurrectionalist methodology or ideas than a critique of how a specific insurrectionalism, that which has developed in Barcelona in the last eighteen years, has played out in practice. It problematizes a set of practices and attitudes that it sees in the self- proclaimed insurrectionalist milieu there, from arrogance to bad security to an incomplete understanding of repression. At times it broadens to critique insurrectionalisms of other places or more general aspects of the tendency.

Replies to anti-civ critiques of veganism
It’s impossible to be vegan because it’s impossible to totally refrain from harming other life.

Let me just say that I don’t really regard myself as an anarchist thinker – Noam Chomsky
Let me just say that I agree with him. Noam Chomsky is not only the world’s most famous anarchist. He’s the world’s most famous anarchist who isn’t one.
