William Gillis (rechelon) wrote a pretty interesting essay about how/why people get into anarchism, Sociological Entrypoints to Anarchism.

I think that's true to an extent. Authoritarians and reactionaries generally have the same tendencies from their politics to their interpersonal relationships. But plenty of people don't have a well defined or thought out politics, so for them it might not be related.

They're a transhumanist, right? A lot of that list reads like how to identify as an anarchist without ever understanding anarchy.

He just noted characteristics that people typically share. I don't agree with something like 95% of what he writes but he's a solid anarchist and a comrade.

Yeah but a very narrow sample of people (white middle class college students, I'm guessing).

I mean I can't speak to that without some hard stats. But in my experience that's not necessarily the case.

Dude's a legit anarchist, if he can't speak about anarchist trends he notices I don't know who can. He's been involved in the scene like his whole life.
