Some say I'm interesting.
This is a Haiku.

But he’s not a character in that game…
Anonymous asked: are you an anarchist?
I’d say yes, but not if anarchism involves assaulting people based on the fact that they hold an opinion contrary to an anarchist cultural consensus. If anarchism means bowing down before the authority of the community and forfeiting your ability to think for yourself and reach your own conclusions then fuck anarchism.
These leftist internet anarchists are so haunted by the spooks of ending prejudice and creating perfect equality that the interests of the individual becomes secondary and abstracted. They’re so focused on achieving their egalitarian ends that they’re willing to declare thinking certain thoughts a crime punishable by mass-violence.
So racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia and all other forms of oppression are fine, then? Oppressed people should just back down and let it happen to them because it infringes on the oppressors rights? Seriously?
If you’re using full consensus, there isn’t a separate “will of the community”.
Consensus is a weird thing to fetishize, and it’s done a lot by anarchists. A group’s actions is always going to affect more people than came to a consensus in that group. So your equality under consensus could easily devolve into what democracy is in imperialist nations.
In other words, consensus decision making can be hijacked just as easily as (if not more easily than) any other decision making process. It isn’t a panacea to hierarchy — especially because you will not always reach full consensus, so someone’s will will be rejected if a community has to, through consensus, approve that will for it to be legitimate and be the same as the will of the individual.
tldr: Even under consensus the will of the individual is separate from what is called the “will” of the “community.”
You, sir, are definitely now being followed by me.
Anonymous asked: Have you done any drugs?
Contrary to what my physical appearance may suggest, not really. Unless you count over the counter or pharmaceutical drugs. The only drug I’ve really used for recreation - if you can even call it that, it seems like a huge stretch - is caffeine.
I tend to view recreational drug use as the result of a person’s lack of ability to cope with various stressors. My neuroticism is incredibly low - so I’m not inclined to use drugs in such a way.
kiranirvanna asked: There are reasons I follow you. You affirm those reasons today. :) I appreciate, and I think, agree with your take on that, which is why I made the note I might be talking at cross purposes with his intent, though to be fair his post was a bit vague in terms of possible interpretation XD at least I feel they were xp anyway, you're very intelligent and articulate and respectful. I appreciate that ^_^
It’s appreciated. And I agree that they were very vague. I had to think about it a bit before I came to a conclusion about what they probably meant.
