It's worth noting that a lot of antifa work pretty hard to minimise collateral damage. Most of the bigger-picture liberal arguments against implicitly assume that fascists need violent resistance in order to tear down the fabric of society: that "it's going to happen anyway" can't be true.

But hey, that broken window in Berkeley was drastically more important than all the other windows broken that day, right?...

(I think the concept has some value, but loses it the moment we think we can observe neutrally or stop trying to find what's missing)

Thanks. That's very interesting, and reading some of the responses led me to this post, which argues that many in the rationalist community are getting their economics from This One Dude, and he's misrepresenting "the economic consensus" and "common sense" and so on.

Which if true would explain a lot, although not nearly enough (I recently made the mistake of visiting Slate Star Codex for the first time in a while, and before remembering why I don't do that and noping out, noted with amazement his level of enthusiasm for Elon Musk. I mean.)
