And I havent noticed campershell "attacking" us or whatever. I HAVE, however, noticed Franc and Vertigo attacking him without anything that I see as a justification. I think you punks are letting your feathers get all ruffled over having to deal with the fact that a currently serving soldier has just deconverted to anarchy and has joined the forums.
Are you little girls afraid of something? Isnt this the very fucking MANIFESTATION of the opportunity for anarchy that we all claim to want?
NoDeity is, once again, showing a much more reasonable and rational response to the situation than just about anyone else in here.
I'm not particularly interested in anarchy becoming popular. Christianity is popular but almost no Christians behave in a Christian way. Socialism is popular but socialists don't behave in a socialist way. Labels don't constrain behaviour.
I don't care for lipstick anarchism, I want people to think independently, people who don't need me to pat them on the back and say "well done". And obviously this is not a political argument (if my meaning is understood). To me, anarchism is about the lack of or contingency of political legitimacy. It is the rejection of de facto political legitimacy in favour of critical analysis of whether the system suits me individually. Specifically, it rejects the bullshit claim that one should choose the lesser evil.
So anyway, for Campershell Dreams to say that he is an anarchist or will become one doesn't really say much, I don't think. I think everyone should be an anarchist, it doesn't need my congratulations. I worry that he would stamp on me to get out of a crowded theatre when some fool shouted "Fire" for no reason. Taking that a face value is as wrong as taking government propaganda at face value.
Anyway, I don't claim that what I say is representative.
