Anarchists in mainstream media: AAAAAA FUCK LAWS MAKE BOMBS BURN DOWN EVERY BUILDING, EVERYONE DIES YOU EITHER KILL YOURSELF OR GET KILLED, 5EDGY3ME
Anarchists IRL: I just want to be able to spend 20 hours a week baking bread for my commune and spend the rest of the time tending my garden and hanging out with my cats
@Dayglochainsaw yes. just run Tom Nook out of town and it's perfect
@Dayglochainsaw Anarchists in mainstream media: PREPARE FOR THE PURGE
Anarchists IRL: Can I just have my human rights please
@Dayglochainsaw How about ANIMAL SOULS ?
@Dayglochainsaw I want the world to be like Dark Souls in that when your boss shows up you see their current health on your HUD and when you die the game tells you so you know for sure.
@Dayglochainsaw i am both, quite frankly.
@Dayglochainsaw Wow that IRL is SOOO me.
@Dayglochainsaw why isn't my life Stardew Valley?
@Dayglochainsaw i’m both
Some Important Twitter Liberal (tm) was really irate with me years ago because I pointed out that Howard Zinn was an anarchist.
Then when I went and got the interview with HZ on YT where he talks not only about being an anarchist, but anarchist/socialist movement building as well, and sent it to Mr. Very Important Pants? He started to froth.
@Dayglochainsaw I think it has gotten even simpler for me lately. “I am tired I just want to make sure my commujebisbokay and then we can all take a nap.”😅
I've spent some time at a small anarchist community and everyone was super nice and the garden tending thing is very real. However I stopped going there because everyone was so, well.. radical. They were allways talking so violently about some oppressor and saying just super evil stuff. I'm a pacifist and all this talk of murdering/torturing the opressors and justifying revolutionary violance just creeps me out.
@logarithmic_function I feel like only self-defense is morally justified, but also it's barely even necessary to go out and pick fights. As soon as any anti-capitalist organization starts making headway and actually starts helping people, you can be sure as sunrise that The Powers That Be are going to send some brownshirts to kick your shit in. It's better optics to be on the defense anyway, no need to intentionally martyr yourself.
@logarithmic_function I mean yeah, but that was over a hundred years ago, in a completely different political climate, in a completely different country. Things have changed. The bomb dropped on Hiroshima and turned war from a boxing match into a chess game. Conflict of all shades is deeply, irreversibly different. What worked then won't necessarily work now.
@logarithmic_function oh, krav maga is good as FUCK. I like it because it's very useful, most other forms of martial art are some percentage of sport, which is fine! But not to mince words, you're gonna use krav maga if you get jumped, need to get away, and need to beat the shit out of someone to a degree where they are unable to come after you when you run.
@Dayglochainsaw why not both???
@Dayglochainsaw don't mind me I'm gonna boost this toot every day until the end of time
