Past attempts at criminal association investigations

They use it quite often, and quite effectively, against anti-fascist groups. Often it's pointless and seldomly someone is put into jail because of it. They use it for gathering information and disintegrating their structure.

I find this is quite a novelty. Liberals are not often target of such repression mechanisms. Let's see how this works out.

Not sure what you mean with anti-state communism. I do not know any movement with that specific label. For me many anti-statist communisms exist and autonomist marxism is one of them. "Communisation" and some Anti-National Communisms as well. The following is a very European view on the topic; I'm not very aware of anti-statist communisms outside of Europe. If you know some african, asian, american communisms which are anti-statist please give some hints.

Also autonomist marxism is a rather broad term. The italian roots (operaismo) come from classical marxism; they formed their power through self organization in factories (FIAT). They ditched unions and parties in favor of wildcat strikes and direct action. Many theories from that time moved away from communism to something else (Negri: Empire) Not really sure how the state fit in the picture of operaismo. (In contrast to classical communism people without employment where also part of the theory and the revolutionary subject)

For me the german (autonome) where influenced quite a lot by the operaismo but had much less influence on factories. Their politics where more focused "tripple opression" (racism, sexism, classism). They did a lot of squatting, direct action, believed in propaganda of the deed, ... They merged much more communism and anarchism then operaismo did (many called themself "undogmatische linke" and sometimes also rejected the term communism). The state is rejected as oppressive force and politics is formed around the individuals and their daily lives (while still holding on to marxist critique on capitalism and the theoretical foundation).

Then there is also a french branch (actually one of the first in the field of autonomia) mainly forming around Socialisme ou Barbarie. They started of from classical marxism (mainly Trotzkism) and forming an anti-Bolshevist communism. They also gathered, as the italian operaismo, much around factories, used a lot of participatory means (questionnaires, articles, workers led analysis, ...). But in contrast to the other twos they did not reject parties and organizations so strictly. Cornelius Castoriadis was one of the most influential figures and coined the theory there. Later he developed his own philosophies moving further away from communist ideas (if it could be named "socialism" it would be a very liberal socialism).

This would be the autonomia I know about. Most newer anti-statist theoretical schools of thoughts here build up on that with some other influences. In germany (post-)Autonome are still a little around. The Antideutsche and Antiimps where successors while both are no more (really) present. In GB, France and Germany some theories around communisation emerged for some time which also reject the state completely and in my opinion based on the autonomia and council communism.

Please don't be too picky on what I said, it should not be a detailed analysis I just wrote down what I had in my head. You can say much more on every topic here. And again: not sure what anti-state communism is.

Don't know what your calculation means and think you mean 1200 milligrams. Then it also Depends on your body mass/weight. I'v no experience with DXM but your dosage seems pretty high to me, and your story is also quite wild. Also I'm not sure what this urine infection is about; it sounds to me you just took a lot of DXM...

If it comes out: Sorry but you have to take whats coming; Please don't start making up stories, stay straight and don't make it worse. It's okay to do strange stuff (taking quite a lot DXM) but don't mess up relationships with friends or family because of that.

And next time: Please start slow; taking a high dose at the beginning is really a bad Idea. And another advice: Just because something is legal doesn't make it better than illegal stuff. I saw more people getting problems from DXM, legal highs and stuff than from LSD. Be careful and think twice when you want to mess with your mind.

Naja mehr als das. Auch in der Linken ist es eher umstritten; es wäre wohl die Standard-Tageszeitung wenn die DKP regieren würde. Die Zeitung geht in Richtung "Orthodoxen" Marxismus, ist "klassisch" Antiimperialistisch und schreibt aus der Tradition auch gerne mal etwas Antisemitisches. Ich persönlich mach einen weiten Bogen um die Zeitung; auch wenn mir mal ein Artikel übern weg läuft der ansprechend wirkt. An sich will ich keine Werbung für den Verein machen.

Sure I do; but rather their practice than words. I want to live in a cooperative world where people interact as true as possible; an because of this I think opening up and being yourself just works when you do not fear getting hurt. And this means I trust them or I would not act like I do. Also I know many of them hold back and sometimes betray you but I'm fine with that; I just try not to/don't share too important stuff so not too bad things happen when this is the case, and I learned with whom I do not want to interact. There are also people I trust pretty much and vice versa and when such bond breaks you learn a LOT about you, people, society, ... If not also and it's wonderful if you feel deeply connected with others. But above all: All this is fluent; it changes, develops comes in gradients and breaks apart. It's not binary and static; I'm not naive I need to get a grip on the people and I'm often not wrong (in my opinion).

And this is not specific to anarchist. I can also trust liberals and think their politics and view on the world is bullshit. Same applies to communist; sometimes even classic reactionaries. I mean trusting is not bound to agreeing; right?

Soldering figures from scrap parts. Mobiles and stuff like that.

The hand puppets are made of pulp or just wool and the body from old cloth I have laying around. The look like "paul klee hand puppets" for peasants ^^

hehe the polaroid mod sounds rather uncomfortable. ^^

I like structures, so often architecture from weird angles, "rotting" stuff/decay (biological, metal, civilization), and also "street"/friends/people doing (weird) stuff.

I have some old film (polaroid 360 land camera haphazardly converted to take modern instant film, or cut to size medium format)

This is awesome! I had quite a lot polaroid cameras laying around but sold it before the new films got popular. Was the conversion complicated?

The developer prices are high currently? It's quite some time I had to buy new developer. I use quite low-tech developer mainly ((pseudo-)Rodinal, Caffenol (different variants), stuff from old recipes, left stock I find from various sources) so my development costs are superb low. After developing the negatives I tend do scan them and enlarge just very few of them.... But yes I also switched to more digital photography since I don't have the time of working in the lab anymore :(

old digital

Sounds cool, also thought about getting some old digital cams but when I searched for them they where quite hard to find around here.

Am I u?

Going on multiple day deep dives on random topics that will likely never be applicable to my daily life.

Feel it so much.

What kind of Microscope do you have? Got some old Zeiss microscope with cross table but did not use it too much. Bought it for mushroom spores but then realized I do not want to go this far identifying variants.

Are you doing analog or digital photography?

As working class kid going through all the formal education institutions just to find out it's much harder for me than for others (since I had to work beside all the learning) while I see others enjoying vacations; and in the end realizing all that shit is bullshit and telling all that the people in my first company (which paid me really good for almost no work) before quitting.

learning weird stuff (basket-weaving, bookbinding, repairing electronics, ... mostly repairing stuff), fixing bikes, growing mushrooms, sometimes woodworking (did some furniture), kick-boxing, crafting funny toys (e.g. hand puppets), sewing (also mainly repairing), gathering herbs and mushrooms. Not sure if that are hobbies; often its a mixture of work and fun; often I would not bother doing it if I would not see a need of fixing stuff or working on stuff; But if I have to I become pretty nerdy and start gathering a lot information about specific topics before working on the stuff; then it's no more just work but also partly hobby. But I never do stuff constantly; if I'm happy with my progress/work I start losing interest (for a long time/till the next need).
