    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Why do you have to call yourself an anarchist to sign petitions and vote? I can do those things with no anarchist affiliation at all.

    Because it's the cool thing to be politically active in South Dakota - and calling yourself something hardcore like an anarchist gets you plenty of hairy hippie chick cooter.

    The hairy hippie chicks I know are aware of what "anarchy" actually means; they give anarchists sermons, not cooter.

    Then you need to meet some new hippy chicks. Being a poser is pointless if it doesn't get you laid!:lol:

    The only poseur in the scene I described was the anarchist.

    EDIT: Just in case you're confused, I'm not the anarchist.

I think we could have a voting system to do this with the internet. It couldn't be any more corrupt or less secure than those damn electronic voting machines.

    Hey! I'm kind of an anarchist at heart. But I won't wear black hoodies and show up at protests. Protests suck in general. But I think Democracy is the worst political system.....except for all the others....still to close to mob rule to me like, but it'll do.

    Besides, I'd love it if the world went batshit Mad Max crazy. :5nuclear: :5nuclear: :5nuclear:
    But I'm a little nutz anyway...:bduh:

    The most educated person I know is a friend of mine from college who has a Ph.D. in Sociology. He identifies with Anarcho-socialism.
    Hmmm. I see what you did there. First you said something very sad, and then you threw in kind of an oblique mention of an oxymoron.
    Neat.

    That would amuse me.
    That would amuse me, as well.

    I find it disturbing that the police have the attitude that it is innevitable that they will need to beat up the protesters and that so many forum members find this desirable. :5squeeze:

    This is nothing like the 300, unless by Spartans you mean armed and trained police able to operate with a certain latitude concerning force and by Persians you mean a group of untrained and unarmed for the most part protesters who, unless you live outside the US, pose no real threat to law enforcement outside of annoyance and forcing the municipality to pay overtime. In that case, yeah, Leonidas, you're standing tall against the invaders. Future generations will sing of your brave sacrifice to ensure the country is not lost to the patchouli scented horde.

    Many thanks to both of you for posting the above. I got so distracted by the "anarchist" that I forgot follow up on the '68 Democratic National Convention reference.
