    This page is about the ideology referred to achieving Communism as an end goal. For other uses, see Communism.


    Anarcho-Communism (AnCom) is an anarchist socialist and Prgess.png culturally progressive ideology inhabiting the Libleft.png bottom left corner of the political compass. It believes in the abolition of the state and all structures of capital, leading to a Awaj.png stateless, Soc.png classless, and post-monetary society based on a GE.png Gift Economy and Directdem.png Direct Democracy. Egocom.png Some forms of Anarcho-Communism are heavily influenced by Ego.png Egoism and radical individualism, believing Anarcho-Communism to be the best social system for the realization of individual freedom (although this is HIGHLY contended within various anarchist groups, especially on the debate of morality, ethics, individual freedoms, identity politics, localism vs internationalism, freedom of speech, and organization). Many AnComs view Anarcho-Communism as a way of reconciling the gap between the individual and society. Although even this is highly contested.

    History

    Creation

    Although proto-anarchism has been seen in various societies in various forms throughout history, the main understanding of Anarcho-Communism as it is often known today first arose and developed out of radical Soc.png socialist currents after the Jack.png French Revolution. The works of Russian political theorist and activist Peter Kropotkin and took importance later as Anarcho-Communist theory expanded on and developed pro-organizational and insurrectionary anti-organizational sections, such as those by Acol.png Anarcho-Collectivist Mikhail Bakunin. Anarcho-Communism has actually had places in history, the best-known examples of which are the anarchist territories during the Spanish Revolution and the Free Territory during the Russian Revolution, where anarchists such as Nestor Makhno worked to create and defend anarcho-communism through the Platformism.png Revolutionary Insurrectionary Army of Ukraine from 1919 before being conquered by the ML.png Bolsheviks in 1921.

    Spanish Civil War

    Through the efforts and influence of the AnSynd.png Spanish anarchists during the Spanish Revolution within the Spanish Civil War starting in 1936, Anarcho-Communism existed in most of Aragon, parts of the Levante and Andalusia as well as in the stronghold of AnSynd.png Anarchists Catalonia before being crushed by the combined forces of the Francoist Fash.png Nationalists (the regime that won the war), Nationalist allies such as Nazi.png Adolf Hitler and Fash.png Benito Mussolini and even Spanish ML.png Communist Party repression (backed by the Soviet Union) as well as economic and armaments blockades from the capitalist states and the Spanish Republic itself governed by the Republicans. However, some anarchists, such as the Friends of Durriti group, opposed the CNT-FAI for collaborating with the liberal government in the war.

    Expansion

    The Anarcho-Communist movement expanded much more heavily in the post-war era, with Awaj.png Anarchist movements popping up all over continental Europe, developing from anti-fascist resistance. The main movements were established both in Italy and France, where a sizeable following after the turmoil of the Second World War. In the post Fash.png Fascist Italy, the Italian Awaj.png Anarchist Movement was formed right after the end of the war in 1945. It was based on "a Libertarian Party with anarchist theory and practice adapted to the new economic, political and social reality of post-war Italy, with an internationalist outlook and effective presence in the workplaces." On top of this, The International of Anarchist Federations (IAF/IFA) was founded during an international anarchist conference in Carrara in 1968 by the three existing European anarchist federations of France (Fédération Anarchiste), Italy (Federazione Anarchica Italiana) and Spain (Federación Anarquista Ibérica) as well as the Bulgarian federation in French exile.

    Modern Day

    In contemporary times, Libertarian Communism was a Soc.png Socialist journal founded in 1974 and produced in part by members of the Soc.png Socialist Party of Great Britain. The synthesist Italian Awaj.png Anarchist Federation and the Platformism.png Platformist Federation of Anarchist Communists continue existing today in Italy but Insarch.png Insurrectionary Anarchism continues to be relevant as the recent establishment of the Informal Anarchist Federation shows.

    Foundations and Beliefs

    Anarcho-Communism is a exceptionally far left ideology. Like most forms of Awaj.png Anarchy, Anarcho-Communism seeks to abolish all unnecessary hierarchy, including "the state." Generally among Awaj.png Anarchist circles, what constitutes as an unnecessary hierarchy is any social hierarchy which cannot be logically justified. The abolition of these hierarchies is considered to be the true definition of "Awaj.png Anarchy", although this differs amongst Ancapf.png

    What differentiates Anarcho-Communism from other varieties of Awaj.png Anarchism is that Anarcho-Communism also supports a Communist society in the Ormarxf.png Marxist sense. This means that the Anarcho-Communist seeks to abolish all social hierarchy, in conjunction with a stateless, classes, post-scarcity, post monetary society where the means of production are owned collectively by the workers who use them.

    To put it simply, Anarcho-Communism is the synthesis of Ormarxf.png Marxism and Awaj.png Anarchism.

    Personality and Behaviour

    AnCom is a very emotional individual. He has an extremely vengeful passion for revolution and has a high amount of empathy with oppressed groups. However, this can also make him difficult to disagree with. He is very concerned with the abolition of the state as well as private property and goes ballistic whenever any other ideology questions his resolve. Although being ideologically similar in economic terms to Soc.png Socialism and Ormarxf.png Marxism, he doesn't hesitate to vehemently criticize them for being statist.

    AnCom is typically written as a rebellious teen who likes to take recreational drugs, especially marijuana. He especially likes vandalism and destruction of private property.

    AnCom, despite constantly critiquing Marxism & especially its descendants, will defend them when Cap.png Capitalism does the same.

    Stylistic Notes

    AnCom is often very aggressive and passionate in conversation, and has a habit of making loud screeching noises after hearing Cap.png Capitalist, React.png Reactionary Reactcross.png, or Sec.png Authoritarian comments. Conserv.png Conservatism Con-t.png calls this "being triggered" because of his stereotypical SJW.png "SJW" behavior, AnCom is frequently depicted as having an irrational hatred of straight white men. Later portrayals of AnCom have him shouting walls of text, especially when he is attempting to tell a joke which instead comes off as him whining and justifying his beliefs. Said walls of texts are usually random passages or incomprehensible gibberish found on the web or The Conquest Of Bread to save time on comics. His favorite weapon is the Molotov cocktail and he has a tendency to use it a lot.

    He's usually seen with a bat or hood. He also wants to be a Ancom Furry.png cat, for some reason.
