Greater agency on the part of individual association (increased understanding of and find-grained control over who you're collectively chatting with) tends to reduce the impact that alt-right fake account armies can have as well as tribal incivility.
Yet when greater agency over who you're engaging with isn't managed at the individual level, but is outsourced to federative structures or discrete "groups", that tend towards tankie style failure modes -- not least because control can be seized.
This is part of what I've long been emphasizing about the negative defaults of humans. Our shitty monkey brains are more natural fascists than they are anarchists -- there's a reason reactionaries are called reactionaries -- fighting, provoking, growing beyond that is hard.
@rechelon I both agree and disagree. To me anarchism, rather than a state of mind, is at first the most efficient and non-oppressive mean of resolution for human conflicts (which come naturally, and it's a good thing actually)
