we need our own language and symbolism, and we need to respond to appropriation either by bashing it back, reclaiming/expropriating what the liberals seek to exploit and/or co-opt from our movements, or by changing and abandoning that which is lost to us.
are the words, radical, anarchist, revolutionary, socialist, even meaningful anymore? i think they are, but i think we also need to save them from revisionist oppertunism, the mainstream trying to rebrand itself as its foundation crumbles in hopes we build it a new one.
what words, what symbols can we use. what kind of language. what tone. what framework, what lense should we be showing the world that communicates anarchist principles, inspires anarchist action, and sympathy and support for anarchist courageous acts of direct action?
