Welcome Scott,

Hope you have an enjoyable time here. Just before you can be on your merry way may I ask you one question, are you or do you know anyone in this picture?

grin

Haha, no I dont. Quite frankly, I'm glad that I don't. Mr. T

Is the green and black star for environmental anarchists or for weird shamrock anarchists?

Hi comrades!

Just wanted to say this seems an excellent community and I'm looking forward to being a part of it. Didn't realise in this crap celeb dominated media nightmare that is Britain today there were so many people with an abundance of brain cells remaining! Good stuff - I find brain cells quite useful me - good for getting me up in the morning and washed/dressed etc. Anyone else have good/bad uses for their brain cells??

I'll save my main intro bit for the "how did you become an anarchist/communist thread" - seems the right place.

In the meantime - cheers!

Hi there, i've posted before but had tech probs so hopefuly all is now ok.

I didn't introduce myself properly before so here goes. I'm from Newport in South Wales but have lived in London for 11 years. I used to call myself a socialist but i got disillusioned with the swp types and came to realise that my views were closer to anarchist/libertarian.

I decided to register with libcom as a lot of the discussions are interesting & thought provoking though i won't pretend that i understand all of it. I've been lazy in getting involved apart from some anti fascist stuff, so maybe this may help.

Regards to all out there.

Hello,

I'm new here. I hope to exchange some useful dialogue with like-minded misfits. Hopefully anything, which makes me feel even more astranged from er...life I guess.

I have a conventional life really with wife and kids (which I like) and a sodding job in the "belly of the beast" that I don't.

I'm an ex-Trot too. But one day I read some Gramsci, who said that every political party is an embryonic state, which got me thinking and as the Trots only like dishing out orders to drones I thought shit and escaped just in time.

Is it the same people who run this site?

No, me and Tommy Ascaso from here were editors for a year or two recently though, now Saii has taken over. Saii posts on these forums but's not in the collective.

Greetings, comrades!

My username is my real name also. I live in the village of Netley Abbey, near Southampton (though I will be moving soon, I will still be in Hampshire).

I consider myself both an Anarchist (probably Communist) and a Technocrat (www.technocracy.ca if you care to look), and an Anarchist Technocrat (I am still thinking about this, but they are most definitely compatible, especially if you take the parts of Technocracy I do not like out. wink ). I am pretty new to Anarchism, only really first hearing about it as an ideology when I read Homage to Catalonia (I am a mild Orwell fan) in September, which has also resulted in me being more than a bit obsessed about the SR&CW, despite my knowledge of almost no Spanish (except for words such as "miliciano"). I am currently reading The Conquest of Bread.

I got directed here by the user Additives Free at RevLeft.

Salud, camaradas!

EDIT: Oh, and I have also recently e-mailed AFed saying I wanted to join, but I have received no response so far.

Hey fjulle, welcome to the boards. Can I ask where you heard about the blog? Did you find libcom from the blog?

Hello, I'm from Kent and I'm here to find out what anarchists actually think about government, commerce, the world and other important issues.

It was a coincidence. I was looking at www.infoshop.org and at the Flag forums, and tried to sign up but the image from which you have to type a code before you can sign up was not being displayed. I looked through the list of links for other forums, and found this place.

Some forums seem to ban anyone who wants to even discuss the positives of capitalism (if you believe there are any of course). I hope that isn't the case here.

Well, that sort of depends. The point of this site is as a place for anarchists and libertarian communists to discuss theory, history and more importantly: organise for intervention into the class struggle.

If your purpose here was to undermine that goal, it should not be a suprise if were were banned.

But that's not why you are here, is it?

I came here to share ideas and to learn, however, I do not believe that I can learn much from anyone who will not debate ideas and counter-ideas.

I try not to make judgements without being informed, I'm here to be informed of the ideas of anarchism.
