General discussion

So, what are important social castes of today and how do they affect us?

Yeah. So like, what are the important social castes of today and how do they affect us? By "us" I mean, where you are at, perhaps give some details on how you understand us and them. Are there distinctive behaviors to certain social castes that are generally unique to them? On roles in the economy, what roles do social castes generally fill and why? Is the complexity of one economy radically different between various nations, or can we expect similar economic behaviors on ownership and workers' rights.

The New Nihilism forum topic from the comment section

the fabric of the cosmos.
infinite becomings. the flow of relations.
both Wilson's magnificent essay and emile's prescient
response give to all of us ways for the opportunity express
ourselves and to allow us to experiment and experience different world-views
and different life-styles with a sense of creative satisfaction and wonderment.
how fortunate we are on this site to be able to partake in these explorations.

American Post-Left vs. European Ultra Left

I wanted to open this up for discussion. Seeing that the American context of theory has gone in dramatically different directions than the Europeans. I did see others talk about how post-left and ultra left held different things in value. I wanted to discuss just how different the context of European radicals to American radicals. What makes the two so different, but still similar? Why aren't we sharing a discussion with Europe in an International, as there once was? Other countries?

AnokChan is No More

In case anyone wanted to be made aware, AnokChan is no more. Interest was low, though still somewhat steady off and on for the past couple years.

AnokChan was started over 5 years ago in response to the ending of images in comments on Anarchist News as a way to give the trolls a sandbox to play in. The experiment had a peak probably in 2013 around the 3 year mark and expanded into making a wiki that covered memes from an anarchist troll's perspective.

Events listing...?

This site used to have an events calendar. I thought it was worthwhile and wouldn't mind seeing it come back. Perhaps it left due to technical reasons? Is there anywhere else on the Internet that has a good listing of anarchist events for North America? Do you think a NA wide list of anarchist events would be useful?

General Philosophy Discussion

Believe it or don't believe it, but some people think all of the philosophy discussion in the comments section is just a whole lot of meta-blah-blah. Some posted content may be more philosophical than others, but expounding a philosophical perspective contra the posted content is wrong and evil. Evil and wrong = ignorance of forum!

This one time, I was doing-conversation with emile in the comments section and the formatting of our responses to each other made me quit! I don't want to be a quitter because quitting is ignorance of forum.

Montana is no place for any activist...

I used to be a part of certain groups & learned the hard way... In my younger days I thought that White Nationalist were decent people, boy was I wrong. They are connected & they definitely will destroy anyone if they're angry with you for anything! I'm choosing this path now because its the only one for me. Gallatin county judges took my whole life away after proving how my life had been destroyed and of course local law enforcement was involved. Republicans are ass wipes! Just wanted to warn people to stay out or very low key around here!

Red and Black Cafe to Host International Socialist Organization Fundraiser

The Red and Black Café, in Portland, Oregon is hosting a fundraising event by the International Socialist Organization (ISO) on Friday, March 6th. This is strange, to say the least, if you know anything about the ISO. The ISO, for those who don’t know, and perhaps this includes members of the shrinking Red and Black Collective, is Trotskyist, with an authoritarian, top down organization, which has a parasitic relationship to social movements, seeking to use them to recruit people into its ranks.

Land and Freedom - Growing Beyond the Book

This thread is for discussing the Book "Land and Freedom" by Sea Weed. Specifically, it is about discussing the ideas that could be called some sort of subsistence land struggle. It is written specifically from the perspective of Indigenous and supporting roles and with the intention of creating a greater discussion surrounding it.
