Joseph, this isn't a hypothetical
the camp of Occupy Oakland did have a core of anarchists, but only
really grew past a few thousand when the people you dismiss as do
nothing, useless etc actually put their faith in those very same OO
anarchists to understand some very basic common sense campaigning,
coalition and demo business rules
the Occupy Oakland Coalition expanded to 40 000 and then fractured when
the Black Bloc try-hards used the big tent event, the cover of 40 000
people to make a piss-weak attempt at a building occupation
so, guess what, the 40 000 never showed to any Occupy Oakland events
don't you get it ?
the Black Bloc tactic fractured a mass movement in Oakland, as it does
in EVERY mass movement
why is that hard to understand ?
the police state has integrated Black Bloc into its counter-insurgency
Black Bloc IS a tool of the fascist state
you dont need to read fancy articles, just ask around any of the pissed
off former Occupy Oakland community coalition partners
what kind of anarchism re-enforces, re-validates and re-energizes the
state it is supposed to attack ?
its not anarchism, its left fascist cult which is sadly not
self-destructive, instead it sabotages the broader institutions of the left
