Neither, tbh. To give you a very shortened version of what "she does in theory" is a critique of pomo & horizontalist (etc.) political forms and pripagate for a party form that is in my opinion post-Leninist.

What does that mean? When ML became a discourse about knowledge (the "scientific" way of doing things) it betrayed its roots. For Jodi there is no pretense when it comes to parties: the party isn't a vehicle for organizing under a banner of the KFC recipe, but an organized collective whose only goal is to make sure that the masses it interpellates (to use an Althusserian term) by all means experiences itself as a split collectivity, split by class lines.

For Jodi the party is this conglomeration whose sole purpose is to keep open the opportunity for change. In her way of phrasing: "the party is that which keeps open the desire for a collective desire…"

If you have any questions, plz state it, but as a leninist her way of thinking about a post-dem.-centralist or "organic-centralist" party makes a whole lot of sense.

Check out her "Communist Horizon" & "Crowds and Party"for more.

Not at all a fan of Leninism or Lacanian psychoanalysis myself, but this is cringy. Lacan is quintessentially structuralist (categories and such, huge Freud fanboy who even said that he was a "Freudian", not a "Lacanian") and some of the most seminal texts in post-structuralism and post-modernism are the attacks on him in the two volumes of "Capitalism And Schizophrenia".
How is that an argument for anything? There are millions of liberal teens out there who are deep into idpol who have never read any fancy French word salad. And reading that wouldn't help them get out of it.
Many aspects of postmodernism are now "common sense", that is, pure ideology in the Zizekian sense.
When will Leninists learn to stop being didactic towards the proletariat and read Marx's letter to Arnold Ruge? The impetus towards socialism that is communism is inherent in the proletarian condition and active. You can't "teach" them to be socialists. This would imply that socialism had to have arisen in the first place out of its advocacy by Marx or another "philosopher". Instead, it arose as a spontaneous, anti-political tendency and remains such to this day. Addressing the proletariat indirectly (interpellation) does not change this. You will be doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past until you bother to read and understand Marx. In fact, you come across as an anarchist caricature of Marxism, akin to that in the opening chapter of "Statism And Anarchy". Althusser's attempt with "materialisme aleatoire" to remove any traces of Hegel and Feuerbach from Marx (completing Lenin's positivistic revisionist project) leaves him with what's a poor man's Kropotkin (entirely deprived of the positive aspects of his mechanistic materialism and its possible augmentations via the addition of process philosophy and cybernetics) at best with structuralist theory piled on top. You know what, you would do well to read anarchist literature and then read Marx. This way, you at least would have a chance to unfuck yourself and not repeat past mistakes like Jodi Dean.
lol he doesn't support Palestine uncritically, therefore he's an imperialist and therefore he's wrong! Argument won, sucker! I don't need to say anything more! You're an imperialist! I don't need to listen to what you have to say, you're already wrong because of your position!
https://libcom.org/blog/syria-imperialism-left-1-08082012
Stop being an anti-imperialist. You're being reactionary. Even Lenin didn't call for support of the pre-revolutionary governments of peripheral countries - he argued to revolt against those . Not even that flawed position is defended in your thesis. Instead, you have the illiterate, self-interested aristocratic reactionary Mao, and I doubt you've even read him. You probably became a "leftist" by going to liberal protests where you chant about how Palestine is oppressed by the meany Israelis (never mind that even principled but naive Leninists such as Ross Wolfe have made well-written criticisms of modern "anti-imperialism" from a position which authentically reflects that which Lenin put forth).
I just now read that Bookchin article, because I'm sick of seeing it posted as an argument for "Bookchin is a Palestine-hating imperialist!". Rather than engage in an idealistic nationalist particularism, he engages in an act of observing the factually apparent, an which serves as a fundament for materialist analysis and critique in lclassical leftist authors. You, on the other hand, from the start screech and reject this because it doesn't conform to your ready-made conclusions about "right and wrong". Who else does this? A certain ideology which claims that "Jews are always bad and must be eliminated for the white race to be free under a fatherly state". Who else does this? A certain ideology which claims that "men are always bad and must be eliminated for womynkind to be free of oppression under a progressive, multicultural regime". I can tell you right now as an actual leftist, Bookchin did nothing wrong in that article, and I'm not even a communalist!
You're going to conveniently ignore this because I'm not sufficiently "anti-imperialist" and call for your daddy BO to ban me for saying mean words which hurt your bleeding heart pro-Palestinian fee-fees though, aren't you, you pathetic twit? End yourself.

Lacanians ain't pomo
Since when? And why? Because you said lel? [sic]
First of all, to be able to discuss this issue we'd require to have a definition of so called "post-modernism," and most importantly, "post-modernist theory." You surely understand the difference between the two, no?
"Post-modernism" is a state of being, something we are effectively under, something we are suffering, and "pomo-theory" is something which tries to justify this hellhole…

Who is next in your list of totally misunderstood authors who are totally not pomo
Lacan isn't a "totally misunderstood author," he really isn't, because he can be understood rather easily. If you have troubles approaching his though I can give you some pedagogic texts for you. Please ask for them!

Because post modernism has been degenerated into a petty insult with which to accuse anyone you don't immediately understand, apparently.
Exactly.

When will Leninists learn to stop being didactic towards the proletariat and read Marx's letter to Arnold Ruge?
Hi. Funny story here. I'm not trying to be didactic. Telling anyone what "x" is isn't pedantic; it's only telling people what "x" is…
I'm trying to be factual. This is a strange phenomenon on Holla Forums where everybody who hasn't read a single page from [author] "x" is an expert on him.

The impetus towards socialism that is communism is inherent in the proletarian condition and active.
I agree based on principles but disagree based on the empirical reality that surrounds us, namely, that we, in the West, have more of a "precariat problem" than a proletariat one; more of a "ghetto" problem than a factory one; more of a "disposable people" problem than a "cog in the machine people" one. The contradictions of capitalism since Marx moved on and took different shapes. Do you understand? This isn't the 20th century.

You can't "teach" them to be socialists.
I'm fascinated not by the meaning of this sentence but by where you put the quotation marks: yes, fucking yes, you can "teach" people to be socialists, you absolute moron. I was a conservative 8 years ago and I was thought to be a socialist. Where's the problem here?!

This would imply that socialism had to have arisen in the first place out of its advocacy by Marx or another "philosopher". Instead, it arose as a spontaneous, anti-political tendency and remains such to this day.
Marx was not an "anti-politician". This is a fact. Nothing about the labour movement was "spontaneous" – this is another fact. You seriously need to delve into proletariat history.
As Trump would say: SAD!

Addressing the proletariat indirectly (interpellation)
This is not "interpellation." You have no idea what you are talking about.

You will be doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past until you bother to read and understand Marx.
This is a crucial point of disagreement, and it is good you brought it up! First, the problem with 20th century communism was more to do with too much fidelity towards Marx than improvisations around it; second, people who bring up "Marx" as an ultimate source of knowledge/praxis are the biggest idiots of 21st century radicals, since the are totally unaware of the social, historical context they are doing it.

So yeah: "LEL"

In fact, you come across as an anarchist caricature of Marxism
JEJ, let me change my flag!

Althusser's attempt with "materialisme aleatoire" to remove any traces of Hegel and Feuerbach from Marx (completing Lenin's positivistic revisionist project) leaves him with what's a poor man's Kropotkin (entirely deprived of the positive aspects of his mechanistic materialism and its possible augmentations via the addition of process philosophy and cybernetics) at best with structuralist theory piled on top.
Many things here. First, Althusser didn't try to "remove [t]races of Hegel and Feuerbach from Marx" because Marx did it himself. The problem: there's no positive proof, only negative ones, meaning that you can't find Marx positively proclaiming this shift. If you look at the progression'' of Marx's oeuvre you'll see a certain patterns, patterns that confirm a kind of progression. Many of Marx's later works were not meant to be publicized (and he didn't – another fact); he scribbled shit for himself. To quote Althusser himself:

In my first essays, I suggested that after the "epistemological break" of 1845 […] the philosophical categories of alienation and the negation of the negation (among others) disappear. John Lewis replies that this is not true. And he is right. You certainly do find these concepts (directly or indirectly) in the German Ideology, in the Grundrisse (two texts which Marx never published) and also, though more rarely (alienation) or much more rarely (negation of the negation: only one explicit appearance) in Capital.
On the other hand [you'd have] a hard job finding these concepts in the Communist Manifesto, in the Poverty of Philosophy, in Wage Labour and Capital, in his Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy, in the Critique of the Gotha Programme or in the Notes on Wagner's Textbook. And this is to cite only some of Marx's texts. As far as the political texts are concerned – and this of course is equally true of the texts of Lenin, Gramsci or Mao – well, [you] can always try!
[Althusser: 1976, Essays in Self-Criticism]
So please, tell me why this Feuerbachian concept (alienation) and this Hegelian concept and movement [neg. of neg.] suddenly disappeared from Marx's texts! What's your explanation for this phenomenon?

Lenin's positivistic revisionist project
Lenin was never, and I repeat, never was a positivist. His very theory of revolutionary openings would easily contradict this shit-tier claim. Though, one must admit that Lenin was closest to positivism in his Empirio-Criticism.

You know what, you would do well to read anarchist literature and then read Marx.
I already did. That's why I moved on from anarcho-communism to became a Marxist.

This way, you at least would have a chance to unfuck yourself and not repeat past mistakes like Jodi Dean.
I mean… This is just big words from a simpleton who didn't even read Althusser, Lacan, or Dean (as has been proven above). Who the fuck do you think you are, you narcissistic shithead? Attempting to provide people with penitence when you have no authority on the subject?! I won't even comment on it, you waste of a communist!

Leninists such as Ross Wolfe have made well-written criticisms of modern "anti-imperialism" from a position which authentically reflects that which Lenin put forth
Ross Wolfe (who is a genuine comrade, unlike you, a miserable larper) did a comradely interview with Jodi Dean and follows her work closely: https://platypus1917.org/2013/03/01/what-is-to-be-done-with-the-actually-existing-marxist-left-an-interview-with-jodi-dean/

Because Lacan was around before the postmodernists and part of a different academic generation and they all defined themselves to a greater or lesser degree against him. Postmodernists are also known as post-structuralists and figures like Lacan and Roland Barthes are the very essence of structuralism.

Lacan is also pretty useless. He was a captivating and personally charismatic svengali whose 'theory' was just a way to rope people into his cult of personality and get them paying thousands for thirty second sessions while he banged their daughters. He's an interesting character and his life is worth study if you have time but I really regret the time I spent familiarizing myself with his theoretical 'contributions'.

I feel like all I need to know about her is in that one video where she says anarchists are useless because they're afraid of power, and that toothless organizations like OWS are an example of anarchism.

If anarchism can be shit upon because there's not enough examples, then Leninism/Marxist-Leninism can be doubly shit upon because there's endless examples, and all of them turned out terribly. At the best they're just expansive state-capitalist welfare states, and at their worst they're undemocratic, murderous dictatorships which creates a new ruling class. If your definition of "power" is statism and vanguard parties, then you'd have to be insane, extremely dumb, or psychopathic to not be afraid of it.

Fact: most anarchists have been and are afraid of power.
Fact: (the good kind of anarchists, e.g. Makhno) are not afraid of power.

This doesn't mean they are useless. This merely points to the fact that some anarchists when faced with historical necessity adapt, and some are pinned to their moralistic ideals.

Jodi Dean in her "The Communist Horizon" calls OWS a vanguard.

Fact: most anarchists have been and are afraid of power.
If you're including people who identity as Anarchists like antifa and general smashies, then they don't seem to shy away from violence at all, the most direct form of power. By that definition the only Anarchist actually afraid of power would be Anarcho-Pacifists, and there's not that many of them around.
Fact: (the good kind of anarchists, e.g. Makhno) are not afraid of power.
Makhno's army had democratically elected officers and the Free Territory had no state. If by power you mean authoritarian organizations like states and parties, then he also rejected power.

If by power you just mean organization at all, which would be a pretty retarded definition, then I would agree Anarchists seem allergic to genuine organization and think affinity groups and hazy organizations are good enough. But this is a problem with the culture, not the theory, and it's not that way because Anarchists are afraid of power, it's just because a lot of them are stupid, nor is it a problem of horizontalism, it's a problem of horizontalism done badly and meaninglessly.

Let's exercise basic reading comprehension together, shall we? Power ain't violence in itself.

Makhno's army had democratically elected officers
By the time of Makhno's second commune this order has totally collapsed. Makhno centralized most of the organization and made recruitment mandatory. (.pdf related)

It is symptomatic of anarchism that you cling to the idea of anarchist revolution and disregard the facts of anarchist revolution.

If by power you mean authoritarian organizations like states and parties, then he also rejected power.
No, in fact, he did not. He made a "platform" (as closest you can get to Leninism inside anarchism) which was 1) centralized; 2) only semi-democratic; 3) authoritarian. The steps he took were in accordance with the historical reality he faced. I'm not blaming him.

Anarchists seem allergic to genuine organization and think affinity groups and hazy organizations are good enough
Something that Makhno despised and scorned throughout the history of his 2 communes. Yup, Makhno was as an anti-individualist anarchist as it gets.

But this is a problem with the culture, not the theory
No, you are totally mistaken. This is a problem of both: anarchist culture and theory. Makhno despised most of it. Again, read .pdf related.

it's not that way because Anarchists are afraid of power
Makhno was not, in fact, afraid of power; today's anarchist are, in fact, afraid of power. See the last chapter of .pdf related which discusses puss-whipped Western anarchists theoretical response to the hero of an actual revolution. TL;DR: they hated the man (who actually had IRL experience).

In your several Jodi-Dean-spam threads I noticed a particular pattern in how you argue, OP. It starts with you making some really silly-sounding sentence like this one:
If you think that you are in fact self-identical you are most likely a psychotic person
and when that causes the attention that you want, though not quite your favorite flavor of attention ("dafuq is that crack-smoker talking about"), and you are asked to explain yourself, you always resort to saying the following (in way too many words):
1. I am not necessarily talking nonsense if I'm just using some terms in a very non-standard way, if you know these special meanings for experts you know what I'm talking about.
2. I'm not explaining to any of you plebs what these obscure meanings are, instead I will write walls of text where I complain about you in the most vague and non-constructive way.
3. You are all stupid since you lack the ability to obtain through pure reasoning the actual special meanings of these words that appear to you in this text floating in a vacuum without any social real-life-interaction embedding you could search for cues. Oh, woe is me that I can't find a soul on here as deep and profound as I am! ;^(
5. If you keep on probing me, I might give in and tell you a definition that is another strange sentence full of words that have a special personal secret original-content-do-not-steal meaning.

You were going to the point of saying essentially that working class/proletariat politics is now irrelevant, that's what I was addressing, not anything about USSR but you didn't even mention what I was actually talking about

"precariat" by and large is still working class, even if they're not and even if you count all the NEET's out there, the precariat is a dwarf compared to the working class, im working class as are most people in society.

Black Panthers were already figuring out what you're saying in the 70s and they were still mostly old school commie, but they organized people who were excluded from the entire world of production

I go to the same university as her son and grabbed a beer with him the other night after a communist presentation at our uni, weird coincidence to see this post about her all of a sudden lol

Anyways apparently they're friends with Zizek and he's at their house visiting every once and a while in NY or something and this is 100% a true story that he told me about the first time he met Zizek. I didn't believe it when he told me at first because its an absurdly Zizek story

So basically when he was like 15 he comes home from school one day and Zizek is sitting at a table in the kitchen or whatever and he's just like really sweaty, drenched in sweat and he's eating cheese dip while going on this big rant to Jodi Dean about the hypocrisy of "right wing zionism." The kid is just standing there and then Zizek turns to him and says "Hey kid, do you play *sniff* how you say, uhh, Call of Duty" and he just says "yeah." "Do you play the uhh Zombie *sniff* zombie mode?" Yeah" "Alright what level did you get to?" "I got to level 13" Zizek throws up 2 middle fingers and tells him to go fuck himself and says "fuck you i got to level 32 with my nephew, bitch" and then turns back around and keeps talking about zionism over cheese dip
