    How am I “gaslighting” you?

    You literally said “Unless your economy is full of co-ops or something [it’s not socialist]”.

    You’re referring to the collectives of the Soviet union. A distinct feature of PLANNED ECONOMIES.

    “I never anything about a planned economy.”

    Yes, you did. And now you’re pretending you didn’t. Like pretending reality isn’t what it actually is. Trying to convince me something that happened didn’t happen. Is there a word for behaving like that…?

      Why do you think a co-op can only ever possibly exist in an authoritarian soviet type system? My power company is a co-op.

      Here, I’ll help you:

      https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooperative

      Nothing in there except a tiny blurb about the Soviet Union as far as I can see. A soviet “worker’s council” is not a cooperative.

        And where exactly do you live? Is it a socialist state, then?

        Don’t pretend like you weren’t implying Soviet style collectives.

          Why do you believe this? I’m a fuckin’ anarchist for christ sake. I already mentioned libertarian socialism once.

            Your personal politics doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that you think “It’s only socialism if X” which you pull out of your arse.
