To me, it’s a word. Tests put me at “Left Libertarian”, whatever that is. I look it up. “Social Anarchist” is another word for it. Ok. Compatible with Green stuff? Ok. Fine.
So, I join groups to see. This is from back in 2014 on up. Before that I just thought I was “center” / “normal” and everybody else was weird. Come to find out I’m “far left” or “Progressive Activist” according to Hidden Tribes of America.
The tests are fun. But organizing things? Meh.
I’m more about the ephemeral individual interaction. Like right this moment. I’m talking with you. Store and forward internet magic.
In 5 minutes or a day I’ll forget this and do something else. But at this moment, it’s a nice interaction.
NJ, a little time in Mass, Florida the last decade or two. Never been around “my people”. College was the closest thing but even there, they were wealthy and I was full scholarship guy. Still, it was sorta close. They were too organized about their stuff though. Felt constrained.
I don’t mind having a role to play. I’ll do it. But I don’t like micro management. I’m like slippery bar of soap. Give me initial guidelines, loose constraints that are reasonable and then let me be.
