    this is basically correct.
    and this is why the anarchist movement has petered out. a lot of it is a single issue hobby and the working class/people in general/normies can tell it wont lead to anything. it doesn't present a viable alternative

    anarchists do say a lot of things.
    not dishonest, but come across a lot of contradictory things from anarchists.
    possibly you do not represent the working class, but many 'class war' anarchsists at some level claim to, implicitly or explicitly.

    you say a lot of things. a lot of it bilge. and the bits that aren't bilge are almost always bollocks.

    yes, you've said it. it's no more true when you dress it up in capitals.

    But you've been giving it the big one about escaping the ghetto?

    Surely you want to have some fun testing these ideas out in your own community as well as lecturing people on the internet?

    It's not for anarchists to "represent" the working class, or indulge in any other substitutionist bollocks. We are part of the class, not actually the class.

    On the subject of religious faith, you do seem to have quite a bit of faith in the parliamentary system - a system that, as the political wing of the ruling class, has only ever (and will only ever) serve the interests of the ruling class while crushing the hopes and dreams of the working class.

    you may be part of the class, viewed in an abstract way, but so are many of the EDL/Britain first etc. if you don't represent the class, then at least you represent ideas that you think the working class ought to take up? but why should they take them up when they promise everything but achieve nothing?

    i don't have any great faith in the parliamentary system, but the fact is there is nothing else and no other way.

    yes, i suppose he does. who would wan't anarchists in positions of power? what an absurd idea!

    i realise that the idea that anarchists should stand in elections and form political parties isn't popular with anarchists. they'd have to cut their dreads, have a shower, wear a suit and tie, leave the skinny dog on the string with their mates, cut down on the Scrumpy Jack and the dope and face questions. ridiculous. what was i thinking, indeed?

    There are lots of other ways, you just don't have the nous to see them

    Anyone coming out with the dogs on string thing now needs their fucking eyes, let alone their mind, tested, not seen that for round 20 years. Come to that not seen any white anarchists with dreads for many years either. Scrumpy Jack? You're thinking of real scrumpy. Another 90s, 00s throwback myth.

    Anton's just trolling. Besides hasn't he heard anarcho-dandyism is all the rage?
