Debating with trots is like fucking for virginity.

What a cop out, it was too hard for you not to act like dicks so you acted like dicks and played right into the hands of the trots.

So do you actually go out and do anything or do you just sit online and take pot-shots at others who go to the effort of getting involved in anything?

Because you come across as being a holier-than-thou elitist wanker who sits on the sidelines and slags off everybody else because you may have done it before and done it differently so we must be lesser beings than yourself.

Hey Jef,
We kinda went along (well, i should only really speak for myself now, i'm sure riot_queer'll respond) to see what the trots were saying about anarchism. Unfortunately, it seemed like it quickly descended into (many) trots. v (2) anarchists, as they were talking soo much shit about anarchist politics without any understanding of it, and unfortunately i got sorta sucked up into bullshit arguments.
I'm sure i didnt go to look cool, and neither did riot_queer, not sure if we even managed to show those new to the 'left' how fucked up socialst alternative is.
Their single minded focus towards recruitment over any other political aim kinda scared the shit out of me though.
peace

I can see why you went along and it sounds like you've seen enough to know why it's not often a good idea smile

Is this the style of debate you used at the meeting or did you just scream "authoritarians" and then wet yourself a little?

No this is nothing like how I was then it was a simple and direct question for you Weeler, nothing more, not my problem if you cannot answer it.
