  1. hipparchia says:

    national socialism isn’t “the left,” not even the sorelian left. and glenn greenwald is a libertarian, not a leftist. and while “libertarian” is a leftist (anarchist-related) identification in other parts of the world, in the us it’s a koch-backed appropriation of the word for their very rightwing “make the rich richer” movement.

    and yes, large numbers of workers the world over believe in worker organizing, strikes, ridding the world of capitalists and governments alike, and even going so far as to form their own military/paramilitary organizations; ANYTHING except political participation. this isn’t new.

    i’m fully a political animal, and don’t readily relate to these views, but they’re reasonably prevalent.
