are there any good anarchist texts that wrestle with the contradiction between opposing the state as a force of hierarchy and oppression and supporting it as a means for people in the global south to organize resistance against imperialism?

it's unbelievable that no one on here has the display name "himemiya anxy"

1 year later, the NLRB found Google guilty of ILLEGALLY spying on two employees' activism, the real reason they were terminated. Even when things are looking down, never give up! Fight the power! 💪🏼

The PSL lady says, we should storm the kegs and kill the staff. The patrons will rise up in support of us, because they know we'll give them all the beer they can drink once we've secured power.

A DSA guy, a PSL lady, and an anarchist walk into a bar. The DSA guy says, we should try and get one of us hired as a bartender so we can give everyone a round of beer on the house.

RT @blotchkat@twitter.com

Okay, well I'm already annoyed by cis people and their reaction to Elliot Page.

"How would we know who they are talking about if we don't use his dead name."
