    Sucks to be a civilian or one of said militants in Afghanistan though. You die at much higher rates than your occupier and your people are completely at their mercy. Normally one would want to stop an invasion before it is an occupation, not just weather an occupation, while taking dizzying losses, for decades.

      I mean more seriously the basic question you’re asking is just how an anarchist community would fight off an outside force, and that’s kind of a really complicated question, to ask, which probably doesn’t have that much to do with the overall structure of a country’s governance. If you want a more in depth answer, then the distinct advantage of a decentralized structure in that kind of context is the ability to be hardier, while maybe being less coordinated, caveat, this isn’t necessarily the case, or maybe being able to make snap judgements less effectively, which, also maybe is not an advantage.

      We’ve also not really seen many peer or near peer conflicts in the modern era, with maybe the major exception being Ukraine. Everything else has been proxy wars waged by larger colonial powers, and there’s not any level of organization that’s going to really help out against drone strikes.

      The larger thing that you’re maybe getting at here is that centralization and hierarchy is kind of an easier short-term gain specifically because of it’s authoritarian nature, so everyone kind of, is automatically more likely to lean into it. Especially at larger scales, as those larger scales kind of, select for those more authoritarian structures automatically. We’re more likely to have those power structures at large scales, basically. So we don’t have a whole lot of examples to go on, and especially not at large scales or from peer conflict. The things we see the most are anti-colonial struggles. I dunno, you could try looking at the ezln, but there’s not much good documentation in English. that I’ve seen.
