My sex working friends will say that it crushes their spirit significantly less than other work. They also have substantial time for radical projects which they aren't too exhausted by work to do, and are able to work even if they move around countries quite a bit.

I'm hoping to start later this month because I prefer it to some shitty low-pay day job.

What's with this question though? It stinks of swerf. And is only really something for sex workers to answer, not raddle in general.

Every once in a while somebody checks in and people offer changes and we make some of them. If you want to suggest something is added or taken out feel free to do so, maybe with a proposal in in this forum.

Generally voting won't completely decide on forums. Same as how it is not possible to vote away the terms of service, we likely wouldn't allow anything to be voted into the featured forums. Importantly also, I wouldn't be willing to remove certain featured forums. So realistically it'd come down to a combination of the admins' idea of what the site is about, the ToS, and votes.

+ pirates

+ a dystopian world government to fight

+ even the 'good' cops are shown to be bad insofar as they are cops.

+ more stuff I can't think of at the moment.

One Piece is definitely anarchist, but not about anarchism, and though it starts off quite badly it's by far the best anime I've seen.

Not me, I'm about five years in.

(edit: I'm really not in a rush to set up a dichotomy between two types of anarchists or whatever though; this kind of categorical thought is my enemy)

How simple/complex, on average, is the reasoning by which you form your political stances/opinions?

As complex as possible. I try to have my metaphysics and ethics compatible.

Can most things for you boil down to some simple idea?

In a sense! here are two:

  • outside mediation that pretends to be fixed or universal is bad, whether we're talking about the structuring of society or the structuring of our norms. (we can call this state forming or state thinking respectively)
  • capitalism incentivizes this by incentivising the creation of whole groups who can be treated as less than human.

Do you try to spend a lot of effort on nuanced ideas, or case-by-case specifics?

Yes.

Are you more likely to immediately start thinking about what power structure(s) are at play in a given scenario, how they reinforce themselves, and how to dismantle them? Or are you more likely to start thinking about what harm is being caused (by those structures), and how to help the people being harmed? (or something other than those entirely?)

I don't think I consistently do one or the other. I try as much as possible to be in everything; seeing how each instance of anything I experience is part of and tied to structures

Is the former at risk of turning into a case of 'too much ideology, not enough praxis'? Is the latter just treating symptoms, and not the root cause?

Can be. I wouldn't know. There's no successful revolution to base the judgement on. Is my shot at a response.
