Over my life I have always beenn surrounded by newspapers and books including about Marx and Locke. My dad was a hippie at WPU in the 70’s and was a marxist working in an oil factory through out college. So what we learned in class is nothing new to me. What I did find interesting was the examples that were given to us. Such as anarchists living in sussex county.
The only thing that I found challenging was why so many people have “not drank the kool aid yet.” I have always read about radical groups that people are willing to donate everything for the cause. However I have never heard of groups in normal suburbia such as Wayne.
I always knew about anarchism and have always known about the political aspect of anarchism, libertarianism . I am a very well read person and have heard about radical anarchists such as Alexander Berkman and Emma Goldman in the 1890’s. However I’ve never really thought about how anarchists would live in 2013. Such as living in teapeas in Sussex county with other anarchists or going dumspter diving in New York city.
I have learned that although I might be well read about a cause such as anarchism, communism and libertarianism. It doesn’t mean that I am going to ” not drink the cool aid” and rebel. I like my life with my cat and bieng well read of what goes on in the world. I may disagree sometimes of certain things that go on in goverment. Such as lowering taxes or voting against immigration laws, in which many liberatarians believe in.
