In what way? Usually Marxists post a right load of old bollocks about anarchism, having an almost complete ignorance of it and showing their own prejudices. I always put this down to bad faith on the part of Leninists until I saw the old SPGB article posted here not so long ago that drivelled on about anarchists all being Stirnerites.

I don't want to make this about the SPGB.

But it may be of interest to the left communist participants on Libcom and not just anarchists as it deals with the SWP perspective on the Bolshevik Revolution.

I posted the link because if it hasn't been noticed, this forum is verging on the moribund compared with earlier days when it comes to discussion.
