And I will say this - there have always been anarchists. There have always been people who looked around and said "this whole society thing is not built to help the most people" - that's why people don't think there's an "anarchist intellectual tradition"
We are not intellectuals. We are not scholars. We are the screaming demand for equality, justice and sharing from the angry peasant passed down through time.

Anarchism isn't complicated because it's what the poor serving class has ALWAYS THOUGHT and KNOWN.
That tradition existed in Ancient Greece, throughout the Roman empire, in every colonized & oppressed people, in every slum and workhouse; everywhere SOMEONE was getting exploited, someone ELSE was saying "why is this?"

We have always been here; anarchism is the peasant politics
And again Anarcho syndicalism specifically is literally about eliminating the capitalist and putting power in directly in the hands of small localized councils and committees as much as possible, organized in such a way as they can come together to handle the big jobs temporarily
There is absolutely no evidence that the large nation state serves the needs of the most people, best, it's basically a mutant relic of empire spiced up with some wholly manufactured racism and genocides.

Why SHOULDN'T you have a say in the issues that affect YOU, directly?
Because "peasants are dumb they'd do bad things" - evolution doesn't agree with you; evolution says human communities will for the most part act in the best interest of the larger community and history confirms shit like fascism, imperialism & slavery are imposed from up on high
We can argue about the details - which councils control what, how big is too big, how do you come together for the good of the whole Haudenosaunee Confederacy style, etc but you don't need to hash that shit out to understand the principle "society should be organized for sharing"
I told you - you don't need 700 page books to explain anarchism; you understood things like "sharing" and "taking care of each other" when you were 5.

You do need 700 page books to explain why everyone works for the govt now and eventually your share will come through comrade.
