I’m a socialist in the pragmatic sense, and an anarchist in the personal and philosophical sense. I see anarchism as the goal after socialism, just like Marx said you first need capitalism in order to move to socialism. So I guess I’m a socialist for society and an anarchist in my own self because I believe in no masters, hierarchy or control. Though the more time goes on the more I believe I’m selling out by even considering I would want most socialists to have any control over society. Most I’ve met have fuck all knowledge of things such as race politics and gender politics. They have no clue that once we’re past capitalism discrimination will still exist. The trouble with most socialists is if you follow the dialectic route to anarchism then they’ll shoot you down and say your ideas are invalid, just as a capitalist would to a socialist. They’re hypocritical and each day that passed make me less inclined to call them ‘comrades’.
