Yugoslav Marxist Anarchists

Not naming any names, but I think it's interesting that a person can take the ideas of the Marxist-Humanist Praxis group from Communist Yugoslavia, accentuate it's libertarian aspects, and call it anarchism---and be praised for it as a new and original thinker, while someone advocating the same things but not calling it anarchism, calling it humanist Marxism, would be denounced for being an authoritarian. What's "Andy" in Slavic languages? Isn't it "Andrej"? I think so.

*on edit: part of this is just me being hypercritical. In the end, a lot of this is just formalistic criticism.
