How Social Justice Warriors Are Creating An Entire Generation Of Fascists

As I have written before, the key strategic task for pan-anarchism is to develop a radical centrist position that is libertarian (against the state), populist (framing the conflict in terms of the people vs the elites), and revolutionary (totally rejecting the present state and ruling class). Such a radical center libertarian populism would need to draw from both the far left and far right, while containing the totalitarian tendencies of both. This can be done in two ways: first, by providing a political outlet for the expression of issues that both sides raise, thereby defusing the most extreme tendencies of both sides; second, by utilizing a decentralized organizational structure and strategic model that essentially keeps hostile groups away from each other.

One lasting legacy (among others) of the Soviet Union is its deceptive distortion of language – dressing up ugliness with innocuous and nice-sounding terms, as predicted by George Orwell in his seminal and much-quoted work Nineteen Eighty-Four. For example, if someone says that they’re for “human rights”, that means that they’re for Stalinist thought control, hardcore government authoritarianism, and international warmongering. “Human rights activists” are, in actuality, a vile, twisted, and extremely dangerous plague upon humanity. So, too, are the self-proclaimed supporters of “social justice” (who are, of course, often the same people). “Social justice” blogging is most associated with Tumblr, a blogging platform started in February 2007 which is now among the most visited sites on the Internet. “Social justice” bloggers are notoriously zealous and exceptionally nasty people, which has led to the coining of the ironic term “social justice warrior”, or SJW for short.

  1. “How Social Justice Warriors Are Creating An Entire Generation Of Fascists”

    Please Keith, don’t open the Fascist can of worms again, I’ve already dealt with two people on that score.

  2. “That’s not my original title. That’s the title given by the author of that piece.”

    Ok. It would probably be a slight improvement in the radical left if they actually did become Fascists.
