I've never actually seen the term used before at all. I just looked it up. It looks like it was coined to take umbrage with primitivists and individualists. Interesting.

I, too, used to have an instant distrust of anecdotes. I have found that instead of responding based on that distrust, I prefer to ask for more details. Not every lived experience comes with ample evidence. I find especially with anarchism, a lot of the experience with anarchism happens offline in group projects, etc.

But according to this kid if it's not in a book it isn't real.

I mean, if you want me to go full primmie, I can discuss how this is an issue caused by written language and the move towards the reverence of symbolism over actual life. We see a real change in culture when language gets written down from people that value the point of a story to people who only value the accuracy and veracity of a story. But that would be boring to everyone, I'm sure, lol.
