Could someone explain how platformism isn't authoritarian in nature?
The idea of the "executive committee" and it being chosen by a majority to "guide" doesn't seem too compatible with anarchism to me. So, that confuses me and seems like it's a government type of entity.
The idea of "collective responsibility - the entire Union will be responsible for the political and revolutionary activity of each member; in the same way, each member will be responsible for the political and revolutionary activity of the Union,” seems horribly inefficient and with the idea "theoretical and tactical unity" seems to imply that one is to submit their will to others (i.e. the union and executive committee). This also confuses me on how it's not authoritarian in nature when it seems to imply it is.
I could be way off on platformism, but that's how it comes off to me.
