Hello folks! I'm Ostrich. I am also Cynical_Ostrich on Reddit.

I'm just your run-at-the-mill anarchist. For anyone that paid attention to me on Reddit, I've hopped around ideologically for quite a while before deciding that anarchism was right for me.

My journey started as a Wehraboo socdem, then ortho Marxist, then Leninist, trot, leftcom (luxemburgist thingy), communalist, anarchist, demsoc, communalist, and finally anarchist.

I'm overall pretty chill and I like to meme and occasionally masochistically debate.

That's very interesting. I'd be very interested in hearing more about you flopped around ideologically. My transition was much more straightforward. When I was younger (10 - 14) I was fairly conservative, read Tom Clancy books, thought America was great and communism was bad, and generally had a pre-pubescent undeveloped brain incapable of critical thinking. However, through high school I became an edgy atheist and baby social democrat. Through my experiences in colleges and up until now I went from being a baby socdem to a big boy anarchist. To be fair I've been a socialist for a while but I didn't think I'd done enough reading to know if I would call myself an anarchist comfortably. After reading the Bread Book though I'm decided. Anyways, tell me more about your journey!
