Anarchism doesn't need more devisive meetups. This shit always aggravates me. Structuring shit so that it fits your main interest and ideas of anarchism is counter productive to what the central core of it actually is. This shit turns, not only other anarchists away but possible future anarchists.

Fair. Programmatically yes. But quality and simply mutual aid reigns Supreme in this environment. Share always articles that align with far left, usually anarchist ideas as that's the crux of what's here, and engage with other posts.

Call him out on any and all of his bullshit. The worst that can happen is you get fired. Then you get to tell HR that your boss is a racist misogynistic prick and you get to go work somewhere else that you also, most likely, don't want to work at.

You're deluded. Obviously a conspiracy theorist considering youre throwing around cultural Marxism as it has any bering on reality. And anyone who praises the free market is obsessed with economic theory to the point the are blinded by how it actually works in practice.

I will just say this, as an economist and critic of capitalism Marx is relatively coherent and on point, but he lacked major revolutionary praxis. Don't get me started on the Hague congress and Marx expelling Bukunin and his followers from the first international working mens association.

It's an ideal situation for me, usually. It really depends on you and your partner. As u/bloodrose has pointed out, intimacy is multifaceted and doesn't have to suffer. On nights that your work, hobbies, and volunteering lives allow you to spend time together, make a routine of spending the last couple of hours cuddling and talking or watching a movie. My ex used to wake up a couple hours before me a few days a week. On those days, when she would hear my alarm, she would crawl into my bed and throw her arms around me while I hit snooze for the next 10 minutes. We both got a good night's rest and I still got to wake up next to her. Just like all relationships, intimate or not, the little things go a long way. If the two of you have different sleeping patterns or sleep hygiene issues, or if either of you generally need your own space to be alone and recharge, I definitely suggest separate bedrooms.

I'm non-binary. I get what youre saying, but in this case it's not that, though I hear you regarding cis-hetero-normative. My last girlfriend, we lived alone together for 5 years with separate bedrooms. I'm not exactly typical.

Being an anarchist and dating in your 40's sucks.

I dated this girl for a few months that I've known for about a decade, but haven't seen her in about 7 years. We use to do a lot of drugs together back then. She almost died last year and got clean. She came to a bar I hangout out while i was playing pool and recognized me, I always liked her so I started flirting with her. Turned out we are both clean sans the alcohol, and both always into each other. We became a couple in a couple of weeks. Then after two months it all just got weird one day. She ditched me on one of the few days we get to hangout. I honestly think she was using again and just didn't want to face me though I would have been there for her. I made it known that I wouldn't ever be second string to that kinda shit moving forward in life from the get go. But, of course, I was never accusatory and just pointed out that she needed to more effort into us hanging out because I'm not interested in just having, what equated to a sexual partner a couple a times a week.. Sucks. I really liked her. She did help me regain confidence that I've been lacking over the past 5 years. But it's been three weeks and Im now at a point where I have a healthy sexual life again. But i want a partner. I don't expect it to be for life but someone to lean on me and fore to lean on in this stupid world.

Nihilism views the world as a playgroumd. The only things that have meaning are left to the id or ego to decide. Within nihilism there is a 'caring' and or purpose though it's left to the individual to determine.

What do you care about?

Or more precisely what pisses you off,, what elates you. What gives you purpose or robs you of purpose?
