We tried to focus more on the rhetoric used as well as the "sources" they are basing their argumentation on rather than doing the critic of the ideology itself ( you can find another one made by some anarchists from Wales and England here : https://libcom.org/library/anarchy-lockdown-crypto-eugenics-critical-res... .

Seeing the crowded conditions in the concentration camps in Texas reminds me of Inauguration Day two months ago. That night we rose like lions striking at slumbering poachers. We found a Customs and Border Protection SUV and an Immigration and Customs Enforcement SUV in a parking garage in the Old City neighborhood of Philadelphia. They were redecorated with paint, flattened tires, and shattered windows. Wouldn’t you know it? That advice that an awl can more quietly deflate a tire when pushed through its sidewall was right. And in a pinch, the awl can also be used to break the same vehicle’s glass. This tool can be found at most any hardware store.

Anti-psychiatry is the topic of three of these seven episodes: "Fucked Off, Not Fucked Up," "It's Time for 'Mad Anarchism,'" and "Descending Into Madness: An Anarchist-Nihilist Diary of Anti-Psychiatry." We learn ways to anticipate and recognize trauma and to build resiliency into our affinity groups, in "Mutual Aid, Trauma, & Resiliency," based on the experiences of the Jane Addams Collective in New York City.

Against Community, Towards Supportive Friendship

by ziq

As long as I've been around other anarchists, I've witnessed an unremitting reverence for the sanctity of community. The idea of community is held in such high regard by anarchists that it's eerily reminiscent of USA liberals paying fealty to the "sacred ground" of their nation's capitol. Community is something consecrated and unassailable to anarchists. It's the bond that binds us to our fellow true believers. It gives us belonging, direction, purpose, safety, all those good things. But does it really?
