No, I don't think the state can effectively serve my interests any longer. Nor do I think anarchists and libertarians can either, or come anywhere
close to it.
I used to describe myself as an anarchist until I got sick of being around a bunch of lazy 40 drinking acid tripping suburban drop-out crap weasels
that spend all their time talking about "community support" and doing nothing to provide for it. I got sick of the anti-intellectual attitude which
prevails in most anarchist circles and I hate black hoodies with sewn on patches I think they look stupid. I also hate tight jeans and fixed gear
bicycles. I got sick of the fake "queer acceptance" which is really just masked homophobia because I have never met an anarchist that believes it is
possible for a man to be raped by another man. I have often been accused of sexism for attempting to widen rape survivor awareness to include male
rape survivors to no avail. There is also a lot of masked racism in anarchism in that they force non-white people into "whiteness" by refusing to
acknowledge the validity of their ethnic heritage and try and force "white guilt" in the form of "white privilege awareness" down the throats of every
white-passing person I've ever met.
I got sick of all the "infoshops" which amount to little more than frat houses with compost heaps (which attract rats in cities) and I got sick of all
of the shirking of personal responsibility (for attracting rats to the neighborhood and into the neighbors homes) in the name of personal
responsibility. Most of these places do nothing but bring local drunk teens to "DIY Punk shows" which serve to blighten whatever neighborhoods they
happen to be located in. Some of the bicycle collectives are cool in theory, but staffed with a bunch of overparanoid dumbf*'s with a major
superiority complex over every poor person that comes in there, and Food Not Bombs is as bad as the fundamentalist Christians with their forced vegan
diets on the homeless. There's no difference between forcing religion down someones throat and forcing a dietary practice down someones throat. It's
BS. A big steaming pile of stinky BS.
In short. Too many idiots, too many kids, not enough brains, not enough grown-ups, no responsibility. Anarchism has become little more than a "Hot
Topic" fashion expression for stupid rich white kids from the suburbs who have never been forced to want for anything. Any "poverty" I saw expressed
by these idiots was by choice so they could "be more hard core" than their other trust-fund anarcho-buddies.
You think I'm overgeneralizing here? Try going around the country to various different anarchist circles and see what you find. I've been all over
the country and associated with probably 15 or 20 different collectives before I gave up...One is only anarchist in this country if they are under 30,
have the right clothes, and can quote Proudhon or Bakunin or some such other obscure 18th Century author. Most of them don't even understand what
those authors were actually trying to say.
As far as libertarianism? It's anarchism for rich people. They don't have any room for homeless veterans in their ranks either. I've tried.
ETA: My enlightenment is that labels restrict oneself from their true potential. I am not an anrchist, or a capitalist, or anything for that matter.
I am simply "a person." Labels are for food and medicine. Not people.
