Yup. The Empire of Japan was awesome. The only issue here is that it shouldn’t have picked fight with Anglos which caused a lot of sorrows on both sides.

a more apt term would be 'authoritarian socialist'

Marxism, especially Marxist-Leninism, is inherently authoritarian.

No. The Soviet Union was a state capitalist empire with the intent of achieving communism by oppressing the exact people it meant to set free. Whilst the language they used was convincing, in reality the moment Lenin banned elections and then of course Stalin came into power, it was over.

Well, yeah. Whether you call it patriarchy, traditionalism, capitalism or good old fashioned alienation, men and women are both suffering because of it. Whilst I am also not a fan of seeing patriarchy as a singular entity of a few old white men who rule the world, the idea of there being a system t...

The Middle Way is specifically a mix of capitalism and socialism. It is designed that way. Capitalism and socialism are not mutually exclusive. They are very similar in a lot of ways. They react with each other. There is not as much difference as you may think. A lot of the argument is about belief...

As old as Marxism and socialism are, it is possible to adapt them to a modern context. Capitalism is long past its use by date.

Don't even try to spin this as if you have science in mind, that's totally disingenuous, when we all know fine well that it's religion that is causing this mess of contradictory and asinine nonsense; all because of some transphobia that is desperately clawing for justification, no matter how absurd...

I don't think anarcho-communists even consider themselves Marxist. IIRC, Kropotkin tried to distinguish his own ideology from Marx, and called him and Engels "state socialists". Also both men had killer beards. The CIA doesn't want you to know this, but facial hair is directly related to ...
