I know this is a shitpost, but I wanna clarify for anyone who might instantly assume, Emerican Johnson is about the coolest anarchist you can find in these spaces online. His partner (Luna Oi) is an ML and he critically supports Vietnam and other AES states. He’s under no delusion that Vietnam will just become an-com or something, and he comes together with Marxists/MLs/anarchists/etc to support productive discourse.
If only they would press the ancom button, then independent communes would pop up overnight and everything would be solved! It’s so simple!
Typical Anarchist mentality, believing that things will change just from wishful thinking.
I’d be interested to hear how they think “moving towards ancom” would improve the country.
White liberals would be more likely to accept it? Thats all I can think of.
Don’t they already somewhat accept it? They make jokes and memes about Vietnam winning the war. It’s the PRC they can’t stand.
Probably something along the lines of no markets, no stressful competition, people would be free to pursue their passions.
lol another one from him…
Lot to unpack there.
hey im not going to trash a westerner for realizing his head is full of shit
digging shit out of your brain as an american is full time work
If he’s living in Vietnam as an immigrant doesn’t that mean he is no longer a settler?
To me an immigrant isn’t necessarily a settler, unless they displace the current inhabitants, or they want to replace their systems of governance / impose their own worldview on a people who have no interest in it. Vietnamese people had no use for petite-bourgeois anarcho-communism in the past, and have no use for it today. He’s probably not as bad as someone calling for regime change or an overthrow of the CPV, but he should leave his petit-bourgeois ideology and the door and learn about why the vietnamese people chose and continue to choose marxism-leninism.
“I wish Vietnam would just lay down its arms. It’s not like the US would ever invade, right??”
What you talking about?
Having loads of disunited, ineffective militias is a viable strategy to defending your state
How war works without democratic centralism:
Command hierarchy to a federated anarchist militia: “We need you to get to this region asap to defend against an enemy advance.”
anarchist militia: “no”
Command hierarchy: “okay thanks.”
Loses war instantly
Liberals say a lot of stupid things. Post incidences here.
