Unions equal democratic work places, not unions as you understand them in a capitalist society (where they are basically middle men).

Real anarchist communism or anarchist syndicalism like that formed in Manchuria or Catalonia is much harder than before.

But donít worry, people have a right to freedom away from authoritarian control. It is the natural path of humanity that we may reach worker owned cooperatives operating in worker/civilian councils towns without any central state.

It was that way before the age of the empire, and it will be so again.

Couldn't you start your own "anarchist communist" thread to explain this, rather than hijack this one?

Bookkeeping and similar office number crunching jobs aren't real? Why the need to drive somewhere when the work can be done at home? To socialize? Quite a few jobs can be done with only physically being in the office a few days a month.

Are you serious?

If a bunch of people stole from your home, when you were gone I bet you wouldn't still want them treated fairly. These people are thieves, with no morals. I hope they are held accountable for their actions.

Either way, without private property the need for monopoly vanishes.
Thank you Karl Marx. I don't see your system, well.... being workable.

And why do you want them to suffer.

We are all incentivized to be greedy, as capitalism teaches us material ownership of goods is the only way to access wealth.

We act the same to, we just obey the artificial laws set up for us so that the system doesn't destroy itself. Big business needs a state protecting their power.

These people aren't the problem, they are victims of the system, as we all are.

You know not who Marx, Bakunin, Kropotkin, Proudhon, and all their contemporaries are, nor do you understand their ideologies.

You probably believe the USSR was a communist/socialist society. Of course you are wrong.
