I was in that cringy "atheist community" bit on YouTube, which got me into liberal politics. At the same time, I started getting into the Free Software community.
Because of my interest in liberal politics and Free Software, I read some of Aaron Swartz'es essays— one of them on socialism. While that essay didn't have much substance in the end, it let me be a bit more curious and open-minded about what was drilled into me as “evil” for my entire life.
After that, I started reading more leftist texts, got into the leftist subs on Reddit, then eventually jumped ship to Raddle.
I wouldn't consider myself an anarchist right now, but I've been becoming more and more questioning of authority since coming here. :p
