This is a ridiculous story, but it really got my goat. I had an experience recently that really made me angry. I do not agree with conservatives but most that I have met practice most of what they preach. Recently I had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of an anarchist. I thought that these would be interesting conversations, so I started debating him.
Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. I believe strongly in my but do listen with an open mind. I am not going to try to convince someone to believe in what I do, but I will present facts telling someone where the holes lie in theirs. I do not claim to know all or even most but I do try to gain as much knowledge as I can. Just like anyone else there will be inconsistencies in my beliefs and they will evolve. I may not agree with every piece of liberal agenda but I do identify strongly with liberalism.
That being said, I started talking with this anarchist. I would post something, he would tell me where I was wrong and the debate was on. I told him that anarchism is a theory, it has never proven to work or bring peace. In fact it is usual used in conjunction with a chaotic situation. The more I discussed different topics with this guy, the more it seemed like he was a libertarian. There are holes in all theories of government or unconventional living. I decided to do some research on this fellow.
It turns out he held a elected public office and was in the military. In fact he worked on Rand Paul’s campaign to become president. An anarchist in elected government post? In the military serving the government he hates? This truly pissed me off. He tried berating my beliefs daily and had the audacity to call me a HYPOCRITE! So when I asked this pretender about it, he of course had a long story for it. In fact he said he didnt do any of the duties of that office. I asked why he didnt just step down and I was blocked.
Nevertheless, 3 days later and I am still bothered by this. This is what we deal with in politics daily. This clown was a wolf in sheep’s clothing. A hidden Republican trying to turn people against voting. Working to undermine our Democratic right. I hate liars, just like anyone else. Anarchism seems to me to be similar to Libertarianism or Individualism. I recently purchased Socialism vs Anarchism. So as I find my way through that book I will put my opinion here for others to tear apart. Thanks.
