Yo, need some political advice... Around 2006, I decided I wanted to "help make a difference" to the world. Randomly, I met the local anarchist group in my town and they were happy to involve me, despite me saying openly that I wasn't really sure about where my politics stood. I got involved, we did some things, and I can look back on that period of my life with a bit of pride, knowing that I got involved in a community campaign that I believed in, and feeling good about the way that it was conducted. At a certain point, I kind of fucked up my life. At around the same point, the anarchist group seems to have become less active. Since getting my life semi-back on track, I have tried to get back involved in politics. This has only really been for the last 8 months or so, and hasn't been entirely successful. There seems to be little going on that I really feel I should be helping. The only thing I have done is some "green party" canvassing. The green guy knows that I'm not 100% with his party, but he is a mate and was grateful for all the help he could get around last month. The one thing that does interest me locally is the Socialist Party. One member works in my office and I vaguely know him through previous politicking. He had invited me along to a meeting. But, a, anyone who has paid the slightest bit of attention to my posts in politics knows that I'm hardly knowledgable, and have pretty flakey views when it comes to socialism. And b, the SP seems dry as fuck and I can't tell what local campaigns they're into that i can get involved. And it is important for me to get involved, to be doing something. I got a sense of purpose out of previous actions. I'd like to get this again. But internet research suggests the SP is a bit.... I dunno, motionless? Anyway, i'd be grateful if people were nice to me on this thread. Thanks.
