Sure, I agree with all of that. It’s usually you guys that talk about how much society has ‘progressed’.
It's my anarchist underside showing. Gives me a healthy skepticism of conservative and liberal stories of progress (and communist/socialist ones).
My lot have a habbit of liking the savagery of civilisation when it is being done by communists or socialists. Even I enjoy the fruits of centralisation and brute force when it leads to free healthcare and social democracy. But the far left has always been skepticle of the liberal and less radicle left stories of human progress. The brutality of subjugating weaker poeples in america, the voilance of proto states, the brutal transition from feudalism to capitalism. All these things are acknowledged in Marxism and other far left thinking. Lets also not forget the postmodern bogey men that haunt the dreams of the right.
