How the hell do you get banned from an an Anarchists subreddit. Isn't having no rules the point of Anarchism?

That sub is absolutely not about anarchy. The thread was so far SJW it has to be shills, I've been trying not to take sides on this kind of stuff and I thought my posts were very reasonable but that thread was so one sided it's ridiculous. Any post that was not vehemently opposed to those girls was deleted.

I think it was literally the first time I ever posted there.

It was a bait thread to thin out unwanted critical posters. You fell for the trap. I'm letting my account sit for awhile before I post anything critical over there

Anarchy refers to a society without rulers, not necessarily rules altogether. Anarchists can have rules, but they're more of a voluntary type thing. The fact that they enforce them via bans is a mockery to the name. This is why I find right wing anarchists more reasonable even if I don't agree with them.

Eh, I don't believe in either to be honest. Look at the rise of Rome for example. It's clear that anarchy is an unstable state because eventually some group will be organised and ruthless enough to take over and impose their own set of rules. In the Roman case they'd sack the cities of a defeated enemy and everyone ended up either enslaved (women and children) or killed (adult men). So the women ended up having children who were brought up in the winner's culture. Same with most empires really - an organised military with ruthless commanders will chew through an unlimited amount of barbarians. And barbarian is basically another way of saying 'disorganised fighters'.

So right now if the state went away there'd be a period of anarchy. And then some new regime would take over by being able to use well organised, ruthless violence. Given how it would start it's unlikely to be anywhere near as liberal as the one it replaced. So the choice isn't really between the state and freedom it is between the sort of liberal democratic state you have in the first world and rule by warlords or a full on totalitarian regime. Anarchy is just a metastable state between the two.

Historically that's always been the case. In most revolutions the old regime collapses, there is a period of anarchy and then a new and usually worse regime takes over. Anarchism is Catalonia and Ukraine was eventually replaced by a ruthless totalitarian regime with a well organised military.

I'm a minarchist.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minarchism

Minarchism (also known as minimal statism) is a political philosophy and a form of libertarianism. It is variously defined by sources. In the strictest sense, it holds that states ought to exist (as opposed to anarchy), that their only legitimate function is the protection of individuals from aggression, theft, breach of contract, and fraud, and that the only legitimate governmental institutions are the military, police, and courts. In the broadest sense, it also includes fire departments, prisons, the executive, and legislatures as legitimate government functions.[1][2][3] Such states are generally called night-watchman states.

I.e. the state should exist and leaders should be chosen democratically. However only the military, police and courts are legitimate institutions. You can run that sort of state on very low levels of taxation. Taiwan is a good example.

But Taiwan needs an army to stop the Chinese from invading and replacing a democratic minarchist state with a totalitarian one.

Incidentally I don't expect the US or UK to get anywhere near the minarchist ideal in my lifetime, so perhaps the difference between minarchism and anarcho capitalism is academic.

While you are technically correct, the term actually means "without hierarchy." It doesn't necessarily mean no one is in charge or that everyone does whatever they want.

Anarchist can have rules

And what happens if someone breaks those rules? Or doesn't abide by them?

/r/anarchism, /r/communism, pretty much the entire anti-whatever-the-fuck-kinda-government-we-have spectrum of subreddits were invaded by SRS long ago; how long ago... i remember about four/five years ago those were the first subreddits i subscribed to on my first account and they were pretty obviously sjw crap in violation of the name of the subreddit

/r/anarchy and /r/anarchocapitalism have been SJW/fempire for a long while. They were probably the first, non-obviously related to gender, SJW bastions. And yes, people have pointed out the irony of being banned from anarchy for easily triggering the mods there.

I read some comments there and I gotta ask... That's anarchism? Really? Speech policing using bots to shut down any speech they disagree with is "anarchy"?

at the time which i got banned for my "offensive" name, there was also a queer anarchist and a feminist anarchist flair.

checking now, there is two transanarchist flairs, a plain feminist, a person of color flair(both are this sort of cringey closed fist), and a LGBT anarchist, as well as a whole lot of suspicious shit i just dont give enough fucks about. guess they couldnt be content with that "special snowflake" flair

also, is that many communist flairs REALLY necessary in a subreddit not about communism?

Why do we still have bathrooms? I piss in a bucket I keep by my desk, and I defecate in the Equity Garden for Free Expression, using toilet paper recycled from books written by men.

I use a slave desk, which is like a standing desk except one of my feet is shackled in place and I am not allowed to sit down.

I had all the SRS regulars tagged; most posters in /r/anarchism or whatever tended to have those SRS tags. And that was like a year or two ago, they've been pretty fascistically SJW for some time now.

I was going to say this isn't anything new. All the anarchism subs were overran by social justice zombies long ago.

I was kind of worried that that is what anarchism had become. And then I remembered I don't really care that much anyway and stuck around to troll and downvote those dimwits.

Is the sub's name supposed to be ironic or something. I don't think I've ever seen a group of people trying to be more controlling over other people. You're not allowed to say this, you're not allowed to think that, it's fucking crazy.

/r/politics are even more bigoted. They claim to be liberal and tolerant, but they lynch everyone who's not hostile towards GOP, Trump or any conservatives.
