I love this post, I'm liking this place more than r/anarchism already. There they throw around "no ethical consumption" and accusations of "lifestylism" as insults, as if trying to live out revolutionary values is somehow a bad thing. The opposite is true, if you're not making radical changes in your own life, in how you live and relate to others and the environment, there's no way you're working towards any genuine change in the world.

That place is filled with snarky elitist armchair brocialists posing as anarchists. I linked this thread there and it got mass downvoted instantly and I got called a lifestylist capitalist.

When I go there to promote raddle I feel constant anxiety and like I'm surrounded by angry energy.

I don't know who it was but someone sent me a message there recommending raddle to me and whoever it was, I'm glad they did.

So having values is reactionary, according to reddit leftists, lol.

Yes! All change starts on an individual level, if you won't set an example yourself by living your life according to your own supposed values, why would anyone else bother to adopt those values?
