What is it that leads modern "internet" leftists in the west to be so individualistic? Everyone wants to make their own ideology (ex: Anarcho-[insert]ism or Marxism-[insert]-[insert]-ism). Why are modern western leftists so disconnected from actual working class struggle and lean so hard into pedantry, arbitrary contrarianism, debate-bro-ism, edgy bullshit and just straight up grifting?
The solution of working class unity requires people going out and doing shit in numbers, so many "internet leftists" seem more like AM radio pundits who are just grifting a niche audience for money and fame rather than actually trying to advance the working class.
Of course they rationalize it by saying twitch streaming is their praxis: well assuming its true and not just a post hoc rationalization for their grifting internet-boi careers, then its a bad form of praxis. Doing anything, literally extremely basic liberal/charity stuff like attending/organizing a protest, organizing feeding the homeless, working with a tenants union or something, would be more productive than the bullshit they do.
Of course, it would also require them to 1) get a real job because they would no longer be able to support themselves off patreon bux, and 2)humble themselves and be a team player who works with others, not just an attention whore dudebro primadonna.
The left really needs an American/Western Mao who will send all these breadtube radlibs down to the countryside to actually learn what work is. Make no mistake: these are not "leftists". If you try and interpret their actions as that of a person coming to conclusions and conversing in good faith you will be confused: a breadtuber, as a youtuber, is really just a self-employed person. Petit bourgeois by class status, and that is their mentality.
Consciously or unconsciously, they follow the market. Being a "leftist" is just a shtick for them, the same way Belle Delphine is a "gamer girl" because she identified a market of lonely video game nerds. Breadtubers were people who identified an underserved market of liberals and leftists who wanted a pushback on mid 2010s anti-sjw shit. They are entrepreneurs first and leftists second, if at all.
That is why people like socialism done left, Hasan pivot from being leftists to being liberals, because it's a bigger market. These types quickly figure out that they either have to branch out or quit, because there aren't enough people on the actuPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
