The Case Against
Libertarian Socialist Rants
[Far-Left, Spanish Civil War, Alt-Right]
“One thing that I am sure of, is that whatever the contingencies that may arise here, wherever I am, there will be no Communism.”
Agitate! Educate! Organise! This is the rallying cry of socialist agitators who wish to bring their communist utopia through revolution. Inspired by Marxist theory, communists throughout history have made it their life’s mission to end capitalism through the dictatorship of the proletarian and bring about a classless and stateless society. This can be seen among well known far-left YouTubers, such as Libertarian Socialist Rants, Contrapoints, HBomberguy, Shaun, and Stimulator – where they all advocate for democratic worker control and collective ownership over the means of production. The CNT union group in the Second Spanish Republic is often referenced as a success story of this style of socialism, as far-left groups in Spain carried out a Marxist revolution against the clergy, capitalists, landowners and the bourgeoisie in order to establish their utopia. But in the civil war that followed, it was proven that democracy was the God that failed.
This presentation goes into the always constant and ever evolving Marxist theory of dialectical materialism, the origins of fascism in Europe, the detailed retelling of the Spanish Civil War, the economic realities of anarcho-syndicalism in Republican Spain, the benefits of Francoist Spain, and how the reactionary Alt-Right in our contemporary world came to be.
Overall, it shows that the Marxist vision of communism, which is the promise of heaven on Earth, is the God that failed.
