      going off your post in the BLM / police thread is it safe to assume you're either an anarchist or sympathetic to the ideology? also from a few other posts is it safe to discern that, assuming the former is the correct response to the 1st question, that you're a subscriber to the school of kropotkin anarchist-communism?

      "Cultural expression" "expressions". I took a word out for brevity. In other words, without intending to alter the meaning, I removed a word for the sake of argument flow. That's actually quite simple, so you may wish to stop manufacturing false outrage of your own over it. I only bother to say so because I think that'll be pretty obvious to everyone else as well.

        im definitely listening to you, i just don't see how responding is productive, it seems that if i respond it follows that im 'outraged'. maybe we ought not to go back and forth accusing each other of manufacturing outrage?

        my posts look like wack af, they're barely coherent. i take what you are saying as a complement to my vocabulary, even though it's not that impressive tbh. im not trying to entertain anyone or be on a different level (except for like the people who are reposting what donald trump things and climate change deniers), for some reason that posture is perceived as confrontational.

        thank you, jumpluff, that means a lot to me. i also do not know what keeps me here but I suspect it is related to some type of addiction and that I am likely willfully blind (i have been taught to un-see things my whole life) to some of the worst aspects and segments of the site.

      Based on the anti-authoritarian undertones in your posts in Congregation of the Masses, I think you would like this video:

      https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9f9H1dm5qMQ

      I presume you are an anarchist, and if so, you are the only one I know of on this site (aside from myself, lol). Not surprising, considering how hierarchical this place is.
      1. Myzozoa
        Myzozoa
        you presume correctly, but it is complicated. I am an anarchist in that I believe constitutions are undemocratic. But given a constitution, or the assumption of a group, I do believe in exclusions. Participatory republican socialist 'culture', or rather, participatory republican socialism without contracts, is precisely what I think of as anarchy.
        http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1467-8675.1994.tb00002.x/abstract

        i also think that there is a sense in which saying 'i am an anarchist' does not mean very much, as to be placed in an order is usually not a choice and it is odd to have 'anarchist' as an identity. Further, on its own terms, anarchy cannot analyze with respect to the nuances of late-capitalism (specifically globalization) so when i say i am an anarchist, i mean that anarchy is the end-goal of my praxis.

        i also love v for vendetta.
        Feb 16, 2015
      2. Super Mario Bro

        I very much agree that "anarchist" is not an identity; as David Graeber says, anarchism is more of something you do than what you are. I just asked it in that manner to see if my hunch was basically correct, and apparently, it is.

        Also, I do think there's some room within anarchism for analysis of late capitalist phenomena, such as globalization. I believe the term can mean something positive, such as the free exchange of people, ideas, and products, but with rigidly defined nation-states and other artificial barriers (heavy trade restrictions, the destruction of non-western cultures by global capitalism, etc.), that ideal is very hard to achieve.

        The main challenge I think anarchism will have to face going forward is the fact that the state rather stringently enforces class division (namely, wage laborer vs. boss) through the protection of monopolies and other means, which prevents actually democratic institutions from surfacing. The 40 hour work week, which does very little other than keep people occupied, also systematically stifles any other means of organization.

        yes rescuing leisure time is essential for local participation and community building. As it stands, access to these things is available only to the economically/institutionally privileged. By being constituted by the economically privileged and the authorities of the institutions, these entities are able to avoid confronting other fractures along race and gender classes, and in the final moment, the institution cannot even address economic class divisions. And this sort of 'betrayal' is typical of community organizing in an industrialized consumer society. Anarchism, imo, can advance by analyzing capitalism in terms of health: local participation, and hence leisure time, is essential to community health and hence everyone's health. More time outside of alienating work and alienating institutions, and more time in deliberation with ones' community is what anarchism promises, for me.
