Is this a familiar experience for people?

Honestly, I find this quite comforting.

Anarchists are urbanites seeking escapist entertainment!

I have a few thoughts on this.

There are loads of different kinds of meetings. For me, I'm usually limited to meetings with affinity groups, where we're all basically on the same page and what we're doing is spontaneously combining our powers to make things that are better than what any of us could do alone. Those meetings are speedy and fluid.

Here, some indigenous groups will meet for hours and hours and listen and participate in the process. And they won't be bored. The culture exists for people to take seriously the way that they decide their lives.

But yeah, if you're a 'regular' person in a big meeting with people you aren't in affinity with, those meetings can get long, boring, and frustrating. And that's one way that anarchism does exist also.
