It's a moustache that clips itself. With a laser.

We should concentrate on ideas rather than labels. For instance, 'mutual aid' and 'direct democracy' say a lot more about what we stand for than 'anarchism', which to most provokes fear of dissaray.

the people who have been raised under capitalist empire only understand violence, because violence is what our world is based on.

Trying to get privileged middle class white people to change isn't going to be very effective. They're too conditioned by capitalism and distracted by their bread and circuses to ever take up arms against the system in high enough numbers to matter. /u/PostCivver is right that Westerners are never going to bite the hand that feeds them. The insurrection would have to come from outside the West.

What the site really needs is an influx of new users that are good conversationalists. There are still a lot more posts than posts with comments.

Nothing wrong with using tyrants tools against the tyrants.

No liberal can hear about mutual aid and openly reject it. Maybe anarchism should be renamed.

People are nostalgic for the 90s because it was right before capitalism collapsed into ruins. But the 90s led to that collapse.

start pushing actual ideas

This is something centrists are woefully ill-equipped to counter.

They don't subsidise meat so it sits on the shelf and rots, the subsidies only cover meat that gets sold. Supermarkets aren't going to stock something that doesn't sell, regardless of the low price they pay for it compared to the prices internationally.

How do you figure? If there are 10 million less people buying meat, you think the supermarkets are going to continue stocking 10 million more carcasses than people are buying?

Anarchism is about a lot more than worker self management, especially in a world where work is automated. Killing oppressors isn't oppressive, it's self defence.

I'm a green anarchist in that that the living earth is my priority, not the industrial system or any set of human technologies. You're saying that this morality I have where I care about the entire planet means I'm not an anarchist?
