@tao I've already read a series of caricatures online, so I'm good to go

Am I working class? Is this person middle class etc? These questions aren't particularly good, class analysis is not like a horoscope where you have an identity. It's a macro view.

Asking, am I working class is like asking if a particular drop of water is a cumulus cloud or the sea. That's the kind of questions or viewpoint that class is well-suited to. It's not great at the interpersonal stuff

I'm the originator of anarcho-superiorism, which is like normal anarchism except you're better than all other anarchists and are their natural intellectual and spiritual leader

The number of people who would be anarchists if only they heard the right argument for anarchism is tiny. Everyone's where they are already. People will join the team if the team starts doing well. So please stop doing snarky book reviews and help!

This has been "John's response to anarchists getting upset over Fully Automated Luxury Communism"

Mate, I will BUY you a pair of your very own boots to lick, if you will shut up about the queen for just one second

I don't think FALC is likely to come into being. Ironically the part it's missing is class struggle. What are the future tensions going to look like?

I've seen this in the anarchist housing coop that I lived in, you still get notions of an insider class versus an outsider one. Power struggles don't go away. Look at Wikipedia, you have the deletionists versus (can't remember the name of the other faction).

There's never unlimited resources, so where are the faultlines going to be?

Rationalism is when you go on the internet and write properly capitalised and punctuated sentences in the comment section for all to see. And phones do that now by default, so to be really rational nowadays you have to be on a desktop.

You have to really want to be rational in this day and age.

You've gotta EARN it!

My sincerest congratulations to the candidate that is allocated my vote.

THIS IS NOT A SPOILED BALLOT. PLEASE TURN OVER FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO ALLOCATE MY VOTE:

I decided not to spoil my ballot, as the stakes are just too high.

Instead, I turned the allocation of my vote into a 2 round elimination game.

Think I might spoil my ballot paper today. Never done that before

@fediversespace is there an "edgy" dimension planned for in the future? I'm looking for an instance with some medium sickos to hang out with online. 2011 Tumblr vibe

In other news, today's chest workout is going very well, despite all the bees that have taken up residence in the gym

That or people learn some communication skills. But that's clearly not realistic
