Hello,

I've just registered and I don't know how much time I will spend here. I don't even know if I'm welcome here since I'm not from Britain.

Welcome to the boards! I saw you're post on the other thread about riff raff, are you involved with them?

My other question since you're from Sweden is do you know much about Democratic Alternative and what do you think of them? A mate of mine knew some of the people involved, but I've never seen any information on them in English anywhere.

I've split the posts on Democratic Alternative to a new thread so it doesn't divert this one.

We should do a "lurkers say hi here" thread one day.

Click "Profile" near the top of the page, then change your Custom Title.

Are you posting from home, or at work? If you're working, the more posts the healthier, surely?

Hiya,

I'm new to this forum... been reading the threads on-line for a while as a 'guest' black bloc but never got around to registering... so here I am.

Bit of info on my profile... currently working in wholefood co-op, not sure for how much longer!

Sorry if I annoyed anyone with initial post re: vegan festival... ah well.

Blessings!

howdy comrades!

my name is martin, and i'm a twenty-one year old guy from the middle parts of sweden (thus not being a native english speaker, so please excuse me in advance for all the upcoming spelling- and grammatical errors).

since i graduated from highschool, i've attended this and that university course in different towns, but at the moment i work in the communication proletariat as a phone salesman (selling subscriptions of regional and local newspapers).

i'm not quite sure why i ended up here, since i would hestitate entiteling myself "libertarian communist". i started out as a leftist way back in 1999, when i joined a openly stalinist organisation called revolutionary communist youth, then and still the largest of the non-parliament left-wing youth groups/leagues in sweden (unfortunately), both regarding number of members (between 400-500 members would be a realistic approximation) as well as levels of activity.

eventually, i became somewhat of a cadre, and in 2002 i was elected into the central board. finally dropped out of the cult, for obvious reasons, you might think, in the later half of 2004.

today, i'm actually not very sure where i "stand" politically, but i suppose a title as good as anyone would be anarcho-communist, with a few negri-istic tendencies, and leaning heavily towards the ideas and standpoints of the journal riff-raff (which, as i understand, has a few "representatives" here on the forums).

wow, this was an overly long introduction post. anyone who actually read it all is worthy of the order of lenin.

I don't think you made any. In fact I was just thinking about how excellent all the Swedish comrades' English is. Puts us to shame really. God bless cultural imperialism anyway, it is sowing the seeds of its own destruction by allowing communication across the world proletariat. Ha ha. Anyway welcome to the boards kindhorse!

welcome to the boards kindhorse! I'm going to get you mixed up with knightrose, but you seem to be a pretty sensible marxist too, so no damage done 8)

Oops! I hadn't found this thread, so I'll just write a small presentation now instead. smile

Just as kindhorse I'm from Sweden, if you hadn't already noticed. Right now I'm in the middle of studies but in less than two years I'll be out on the harsh labour market trying to sell my only goods: my labour-power. sad

I'm associated with the journal riff-raff (English texts here: http://www.riff-raff.se/en/ or in the libcom archive). Earlier I have been mostly involved in activism of all sorts, but mainly mainstream bullshit like leaflet handouts. My abandonment of activism came quite naturally after a while, when the futility of this kind of practice became obvious and since I had criticized the ideological concepts on which it was based for almost two years I realised it was time to draw the conclusions of my own practice (both theoretically and workplace-related) and abandon activism once and for all.

I'm not what one would call "libertarian communist", since I find this notion somewhat ideological (no offense wink). I'm a Marxist communist, even if I'm not a traditional Marxist. I base my theories largely on the critique of political economy proposed by Marx, however on points where I believe he can be superseded I will not hesitate to do so. smile

Ello all, first of all, cheers so much for the mr T smiley Mr. T

Roite, serious this as this is the first forum ive joined that isnt related to music or footy.

London based 26 yr old teacher, dont really know how to class myself, wouldnt call myself a communist per se, but have deffinate leanings to the left (I teach Economics so I try and remain slightly impartial so I dont skew my kids too much, exam boards dont like all their essays written towards marx). Very interested in the effects of Communism on national economies, both historically and in more contemporary senses. Found Kapital to be a quality read (I know I know) - highly useful in the classroom.

Very anti-facist, would like more involvement in that respect, hopefully time will tell!

so ello all, good to be here.
