There's a strain of anarchism I'm not here for.
White boy nihilists.
There's little more toxic than white nihilism. "I was treated like I don't matter, therefore nothing matters, therefore I can fuck shit up and it's their problem."
Growing up without the expectation of privilege, this does not happen.
"I was treated like I don't matter, therefore I don't matter. I can take my shitty little bit of agency and maybe have some fun. Or maybe if I get lucky, help someone."
It's a far better take
Is this even a legit form of anarchism?
@Ravenwolf who would decide legit anyway? What would that even mean?
@aredridel what lol
@aredridel This entire toot is an excellent take.
@aredridel (assuming you're not talking about "libertarians") this seems like a bad take on others' praxis? Maybe if we had an example it'd make more sense?
@jackolas I grew up around grungy white suburban anarchist kids all ready to throw their first brick and then go watch their vhs dupe of fight club.
@aredridel Commonly misunderstood is nihilism is about nothing mattering inherently... you can still find subjective meaning in whatever you like.
I like making people laugh at my stupid anime videos I find subjective meaning and purpose in doing so.
You can find fulfillment and happiness in nihilism or you can be a little bitch about it.
“I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.”
A mastodon instance for anarchists and libertarian socialists.
