Trying to find irl anarchist friends. The thing I like about raddle is you guys are actually really understanding. Anywhere else I go if I talk about politics theyre all like “get back in your box filth ecofascist”.
I have the same issue. Lots of "normal" friends but absolutely no anarchist friends.
It sucks because when I talk to my friends, I sometimes get bored. "Can y'all stop talking about shoes and tech?" Lol.
Do u want advice?
I may not take it but I’ll listen
Just be a normal person and not a political ideologue. Make friend with people and then anyone who u are decent terms with won't call u an eco fash tho u won't make many friends going "I live Ted k. I wanna marry uncle teddy!"
You got understand I don’t do normal like I don’t even know what the fuck normal is, I’m not entirely convinced normals even a real thing. Talk about my other interests, but I don’t think other people are all that down to give offerings to chaos gods and ask them to give opportunity to spread chaos. I guess I could just lure people in with some free mead
Id say magick and wacky spirituality is a normal person thing in anarchist spaces. I meant normal in that u talk like u are a person. Oh hey I'm X and I like these things. It's pretty common to run into people who are less people and more Spector's of their political ideology. U can be friends with the communist or the anarchist. Or the ANTIFA member. And if u are talking about anti civ stuff and trying to convince people of theory I would throw u in the haunted aberition of ideology category and not normal person.
Normal perks. In this context just means u are a person rather than an ideologue. U can do and believe as much goofy shit as u want. It's pretty hard to antagonize anarchisr spaces with weird behavior. All kinds of weird behavior are normal.
Yeah, should just be more clear that I’m cool with Star Trek style space communism as long as we just limit the exploitation to uninhabited planets.
Shoot gunpowder missiles at ancom spaceships.
Hey, as long as they GTFO earth. Then they can fuck up Mars with their civilization and leave earth alone I’m down for that
Problem is as soon as earth starts looking good again they'd come crawling back.
No they would destroy mars and then have to come back to earth or everyone would die.
