That is why you are not a libertarian socialist.I never understood this obsession with either anti-authoritarianism or decentralization.
Not according to libertarian socialists.Any form of economic planning is going to have to take place in a centralized manner,
It takes a level of coordination but libertarian socialists believe they can keep most power very local.whether that is through a single economic authority or through the cooperation and coordination of individual communities into a centralized body. It has to be planned in some centralized way.
Power was taken away from the Soviets by Lenin. He had a whole agenda called democratic centralism and state centralisation seems to me a major part of Leninism.As for political centralization, this is pretty much irrelevant to the distinction between "Leninists" and "libertarian socialists". The charge is commonly leveled against "Leninists" that they want to create a centralized state apparatus that rules over society for the purpose of managing the transition; it is essentially a charge of Blanqui'ism, and that is simply ridiculous. There is a reason that power was given to the Soviets following the Bolshevik seizure of power.
Having no time, or at least appreciation, for any groups between the individual and the central state particularly those with any kind of autonomy or intermediate identity.What do you mean by "Marxist monism"?
I didn't say that.What?
