oh syrphant. you are funny. i think there's validity in your enthusiastic answer, but starting out by saying that "we're all antisocial" gets it off on a very odd foot.
i'm not sure that i think most of your points are unique to anarchists, but perhaps that's a different thread.
i assume people are downvoting you because of the generalizations you throw about willy-nilly, which could (in a positive light) be read as enthusiasm or caffeine euphoria... but can certainly also be read negatively.
syrphant, you seem to be viewing this site - and those you refer to as "teachers and fellow truth-seekers" - in the exact same hierarchical, authoritarian framework that some of us want to do away with.
i am neither a teacher nor a truth-seeker. i am yet another dumb-fuck human being trying to figure out how to create and live my own life. i do not seek "truth", as that has as its goal some objective, universal "truth". no, i find that a fools game, or perhaps that of a religionist. i prefer questions to answers. i do seek clarity in my various interactions and relationships. that is the best i can hope for, and that in itself is quite difficult enough.
ps: it is exactly the smart-ass you that i would want to have a beer with. :-)
