      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.

        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.

        it's one of my favorite books, but it might seem edgy to some. if you haven't read anything by Vonnegut before, i would probably say read Cat's Cradle or Slaughterhouse-Five before Breakfast of Champions. Cat's Cradle is more or less about science and faith, many ppl see Slaughterhouse-five as a depiction of post-traumatic stress syndrome, but Breakfast of Champions is more about what it means to be mentally ill (broadly) in the context of american values and norms.

        it's 'meta-fiction', so while it is very entertaining to read, explaining to someone what breakfast of champions is about is kind of a nightmare task if they haven't also read it.

        yeah thats a pretty naive interpretation of passing as if x, imo. also whats so wonderful about questioning identity if the move is still 'replace' (the word is not important but the scare quotes just for vagueness on the process) identity x with identity y. It may seem enriching on a personal level, but it's not that meaningful politically, and I say this as someone who is not assigned the gender they experience themselves as. This is because gender/sexuality/* consists in the interpretation of actions, and a feeling of being x is not observable, except as the massively fraught self-affirmation 'i am x'.

        The whole discourse on sex and gender identity is a symptom of how society has calcified deviations from the norm imo. see history of sexuality by foucault for the complete argument then sedgewick gender trouble chapter 1.

      I dont get why you brought me up in talking about jynx, but I'd say both. Calling it feminism is framing itself poorly, and many others do a poor job representing it (Solace for instance).

      And would you mind typing in complete sentences.
      1. Myzozoa
        Myzozoa
        Eh you said that feminism frames itself poorly. My comment was meant to draw attention to what I would call awful framing in jynx' post: in order to show that feminisms are framed poorly by ppl who 'oppose' feminism as much as supporters of feminism also fail to articulate their position in a way that is easily grasped. I wasn't making a dig at you, but I think that the objections to feminism itt (jynx for example) show that simple prejudice against anything that calls itself feminism accounts for some of the resistance in the thread.
