you speak on my behalf if I choose, its all in the choice. I stand by my earlier statement that most professed anarchists are red on the inside, at
least the ones I run into, but hell true communism would be better than what we have now. I fully support your Occupy efforts but remember once
you've occupied America we'll still be lurking in the shadows with a new enemy.
lol don't get me wrong, i'm far from a communist myself. if anything i'd consider my ideology most closely related to mutualism, but i have my own
theories on anarchist economics. of course it starts with individual sovereignty, but when we are in a group setting (which, at some point, we will
all be inevitably) and we need to make some consensus decisions and take action as a whole, sometimes it takes a few voices to help point some of the
others in the right direction. i'm not saying that you personally NEED to follow along. i am still saying keep your autonomy. maybe i can reword it
and say that i am "letting you lead on my behalf". either way you look at it, there are times when we need strength in numbers and if we're all
doing our own thing free of regard to others within our movement then nothing will get done. it's about maintaining individual sovereignty but buying
into a cause we agree with and cooperating with others, not volunteering for someone else to have authority over us.
