This bothers me, okay, so capitalism will fall and give way to socialism but people are so brainwashed to be anti-communist of leftism in general. They say you can’t kill an idea but I feel like with leftism, it somehow was killed! It’s so backwards too, people describe communism as what happens under literal capitalism, that’s a mind fuck.

Capitalism was able to learn from Marxism (which, at its core, is a critique of capitalism) and grow from it.
Is this system we're under now really capitalism? I think it's a weird hybrid of socialism and capitalism. When I think of "pure capitalism" I tend to think of the black market.

Socialism is most attractive when a capitalist-inspired system is failing people, in my opinion. Because if someone is comfortable under the status quo, they're not motivated to change it!

Now it makes me wonder how much of history regarding communist countries has been fake news.

this video from the link is interesting, because the kbg did all of that too, only ten times more
here, in brazil, we have a saying: "flour from the same sack"
different foods are served to you, but they share the same [poison] ingredient

The problem with socialist thinkers is that there are no standards for being one. It's not like becoming a dentist. You don't have to learn anything, you don't have to have a particular position on anything aside from being vaguely anti-capitalist. Being an academic doesn't seem to help. There isn't even consensus among adult self-styled Marxists about whether people should have personal budgets post capitalism, even though Marx explicitly endorsed that (Critique of the Gotha Program). I guess it's more "creative" to blabber feel-good voo about free access and gift economies.

no the problem with it is it doesn't work very well

Yes it doesn't work very well because all 'ML' movements have been left-wing of capital. The USSR still suffered from crisis of overproduction etc

Don't really know how to explain post-leftism besides "you know it when you see it." I would call it political cynicism (the school that's harsher than stoicism and pretty zen). It has a different approach to establishing a post-capitalist society. There's all kinds of ways to live comfortably and even live with the minimal amount of mandatory work required for living in my country. Post-leftist thought has way more of an anti-work, follow your passions attitude than ML. Bob Black's article on the San people is pretty interesting when compared with ancom / ansyn / ML (and "workerist") texts.
