Is DemConFed really a Socialist ideology? Seems to me more of a sociopolitical theory than an economic one.
checked my dude
it goes hand in hand with communalism
Communalism isn't really a rigid ideology, as much as it is a process to be applied organically to the ecological, cultural, and historical circumstances of a particular area. Democratic confederalism is just communalism organically applied to the Middle East, with an emphasis on the Kurds.
First Syria, then the middle east, and then the world.
Democratic Confederalism is what a good DotP would look like, so I don't have any opposition to it in practice.
I just think it's dangerous because it substitutes a material basis for its existence with an idealistic one. That can easily lead to liberalism and, eventually, back to capitalism.
Replace that word with 'dialectically' and it's almost tankie. Just as idealist tho.
>I just think it's dangerous because it substitutes a material basis for its existence with an idealistic one. That can easily lead to liberalism and, eventually, back to capitalism.
Could you elaborate on this further? It's certainly idealistic, but it still has a basis in wanting to uproot existing material conditions.

Is it as dangerous as any previously existing DOTP though? Maybe Allende's chile was pretty chill but beyond that all of the ML/MLM states were a catastrophe in the end and we are today farther from achiving global communism than we were in a hundred years ago.
Don't agree, they were 50% good and 50% bad, its easy to criticize decades of realpolitik of the most successful left wing movement in history in an armchair with the only counterexample being 3 years in a spanish civil war. I mean, hell, if you took only the first couple years of lenin's revolution and then ended it we could go on and on about how it could've worked.
Again, whats with this applied to the circumstances bullshit, it sounds good but specifically why do ideologies need to change because people in different cultures do them?
The ideology doesn't change, but rather the history and forms of freedom that it uses to reach into the aspirations of the People and touch their sense of "home". For Bookchin, an American, this meant drawing on the New England town meetings. For Ocalan, this means drawing on the Sumerian Ukkin. Every place has its own democratic traditions and utopian dreams that can be drawn on, and placed within a communalist ideological framework.
Your decades of realpolitik killed a gorrillion people and didnt create communism. I'm not saying I would have done better than Lenin or Mao but its time to move on to a system with no single point of failure.
Democratic Confederalism together with worker owned co-operatives would be a utopia that actually works.
It never left capitalism.
Thats kinda what they are trying atm in Rojava.
