    As a Libertarian Socialist I have a hard time understanding who is going to fund the public schools if we dont believe in the state controlling stuff.

    Are you pro or anti public schools? Who is going to fund the public schools?

    What’s your argument against the fact that non authoritarian socialist regimes were short lived and immediately overthrown

    Found in https://www.1828.org.uk/2023/02/16/the-ultimate-guide-to-the-tribes-of-the-far-left-part-2/ :

    “The big mistake they make is to believe that the authoritarian character of those regimes was simply the result of deliberate policy choices, as opposed to an inevitable outcome which is inherent in the system, and which does not depend on the intentions of the individuals in charge. They believe that Lenin, Mao, Kim Il Sung et al just “misinterpreted” Marx, turning Marxism into a top-down philosophy when it was really meant to be the opposite.

    “Libertarian” Socialists admire short-lived socialist regimes, which were overthrown before they could fully enact their programme (e.g. Salvador Allende’s Unidad Popular in Chile, Revolutionary Catalonia, the Paris Commune), as well as failed socialist leaders who never came to power at all (e.g. the Polish-German communist Rosa Luxemburg). They believe that those were the “true” Marxists, who would have made socialism work if only they had been given a proper chance.

    Marx and Engels believed that the “workers’ state” they had in mind would be a transitional arrangement, which would, over time, become superfluous, and wither away, giving way to a stateless society. The most radical “Libertarian” Socialists, the Anarcho-Communists, want to skip that intermediary stage, and dismantle the state straight away. “
