To what extent and in what ways are contradictions useful to anarchists?

(if at all).

As has been touched upon in numerous answers (cf. the questions and answers listed with the tag "contradictions"), anarchists exist in a world informed to a greater or lesser extent by systems that they find reprehensible. Are there benefits to holding and owning the places that they rub openly? Which ones? Why?

As some preemptive clarification, I am most interested in those that are beneficial either internally to individuals or to the larger not-anarchist world, as opposed to extra-mural between various groups or tendencies, though if you have a worthwhile answer about that, I'd welcome it, too.

i think that not being able to relax means that we don't get ideological (ha! we! those of us who don't relax like that!), and i think that's a good thing.
(which is not to say that tense people can't be ideological. lol.)
