Don't really disagree with this but I also don't see many "despicable acts" being committed by desperate revolutionaries in my context so for me, how the corporate state tries to turn what used to be considered "hardcore activism" in to terrorism is more relevant. How they keep trying to stretch the edge of the overton window until questioning police authority becomes a "hate crime", etc.

I've read interesting stuff about how more authoritarian ideologies can spread virally online, using basic psychology to turn alienated people in to weapons. There's a lot of easy comparisons to be made between seemingly different kinds of reactionary politics here but does anarchism really have this problem today? Seems like it's mostly being misrepresented by its enemies in this regard, although there's much milder forms of martyrdom that I still see too often.
