Are anarchists really bourgeois individualists - discuss

Just a question. As Bob Stewart (friend of Guy Aldred) developed from anarchism to communism, can you envisage that this could be you? I really like this forum btw.

Bob Stewart is still alive. Someone needs to talk to him now.

i think people usually become more authoritarian as they get older, so maybe there's a bit of a tendency to go that way.

I think ol' Betty Boothroyd once said that if you're not left-wing when you're young then you'll become a total nazi when you're old.

i think she was wearing a swastika at the time grin

aaaanyway, so maybe if thinkgs get really reeeeeally annoying and shit all happens for ages, i could probably see that happening to a few people.

dunno if it would be me tho. ask again in thirty years time

How can you be an anarchist if you're not a communist? confused

OK, so I obviously don't know enough about your theory, but will try to find out (these books are not so easy to find you know).

Awaiting enlightenment...

I think he lives in Aberdeen if anyone is about there? It would be good to get his history I think. (B Stewart)

Call in Freedom, 84B Whitechapel, London on Tuesday and I'll hook you up with some good reading to ignore your relatives with. Cash a must.

You mean right-anarchists (lets not argue about the contradictions there!)

/right-libertarians I assume?
