curious article to come across today. i've always been pretty skeptical of "acid communism" & it's interesting to see many of my same reservations expressed by a writer who's public image has a lot to do with defending the legacy of mark fisher
maybe this is pedantic but i don't really consider greenwald, red scare, etc. to be "post-left" in this sense because they don't seem to have a critique beyond reaction to cultural liberalism, which is only "left" in the most superficial sense.
i think if there is a coherent tendency within american post-leftism it's acknowledging that the organized left is mostly comprised of democratic party fronts and abusive micro sects and trying to offer a structural critique of how we got here. crimethinc and platypus affiliated society sort of served this purpose in the 90s and 00s and i think both played a role in popularizing communization theory in the US after occupy.
so i guess for me, it's like saying i'm a "realist." additionally, i want to kill god
my role on the commune is gonna be to recite the gentle churning of the infinite ocean and maybe care for a single sunflower https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzlERMSKF4Y
