Anarchist Groupthink: Yours Truly Banned from /r/Anarchism February 5, 2017Posted by Summerspeaker in Anarchism.

So now I’m banned from the whole /r/Anarchism subreddit, of course without explanation.
They can’t justify it, so they don’t even try.
That’s what happens when you ask questions about violence, challenge bodyshaming, and criticize groupthink. That’s what happens when you add “queer loser | expropriate social capital” to your flair. /r/Anarchism, as many anarchists groups, exists as a club for cool kids, a popularity contest. The moderators zealously guard their social capital.
It’s good example of how anarchist unity ain’t a thing and probably shouldn’t ever become a thing, barring some hivemind.
Edit: And now I’m unbanned. Maybe it was all just a mistake. Curious.
