Theorie Communiste's Essay in Communization and Its Discontents

I really liked Theorie Communiste's essay in Communization and Its Discontents. That aside, does anyone else suspect that their "communizing measures" may involve starting a terrorist cell? They never directly state such things, but, that is an aspect of the text that I sort of felt was there. It could just be from being tertiarilly affiliated with the far-Left for too long. The far-Left really doesn't deviate too far from its caricature. You're really kind of shown a ton of mostly incoherent "theory", and, before you know, you've been indoctrinated into a terrorist cult. I still sort of like the far-Left, and, don't mean to judge them too harshly. I've just been going through a phase of reconsideration as of late. As much as I like theory, they do tend to go a bit "mad" with it. A lot of that stuff sounds really great, but, it doesn't really add up to too much when you consider what it practically suggests. I was, for instance, really into Felix Guattari's Chaosmosis for a while, but, had later, and this could just be indicative of the shortcomings of my own intellect, come to the conclusion that he just wasn't any longer saying anything at all. I felt like he had just devoted himself to a project that involved the pure production of text somehow. That can be more than entertaining, but, I do feel like a lot of theory is kind of disconnected from its practical application in the real world. This is more prevelant within Communist circles than Anarchist ones, but, I do still think that it does also exist within the Anarchist community as well.

I kind of rambled off topic, but, you can respond to whatever you feel like if you feel like doing so.
