i just changed my mind and upvoted this, although i really disagree with it, because the site needs more breadth of perspective, i think.
the reason i disagree with it so strongly, and in fact consider it at least verging on being un-anarchist in its solution, is the idea that anarchists should, or should want to, "provide services and create organizations to replace or duplicate state or capitalist functions, such as growing/distributing food." etc.to me this would be either creating a nascent state (perhaps of the Communist variety) or forcing people into structures for problem solving to the detriment of other ways of solving problems and ways of relating to each other (the endless meetings of parecon, for example).(in the manual of revolutionary leaders, the perlmans describe the various ways that these kinds of organizations end up ruling people.)
unfortunately i'm sure i'm too late to start a conversation with this person, as educational as that would have been.
