Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
I identify with anarchy, and I'm certainly a left wing hippy, but I've never really done much background reading in regards to political ideologies. So I know there's various flavours of anarchy but I couldn't tell you which one fits my views the best.
Personal freedom is important to me (within moral/ethical boundaries of course) and unfortunately we live in a political and economic age where these freedoms are prohibited by money, power and social convention. I find solace in the Idler philosophy/way of life and dedicate my life to the pursuit of happiness, fulfillment and living well. 'Well' is defined by my ethics, 'fulfillment' comes through participating in activities I enjoy and find rewarding, and I attain happiness as a result of the previous two. That's the theory anyway... Easier said than done.
Personally, I'm an Anarchist. Politics is very important to me and I'm a part of the local Anarcho-Syndicalist movement.
Never commit to any regimes and parties though you may pretend to do so.
Always be watchful on what they're doing, because pigs never stop eating whenever they have chances to do so. Keep in mind that no sheep loves to live in a pigsty.
How a politician prides himself prophesies how he is going to shit on the people. Deceitfulness can be recognized by watching how they promote superiority and prides.
Good or bad, a government is just a mirror reflecting the quality and traits of its people. Stupidity can be seen on how the people idolize their leaders. Therefore moralists and activists are more important than politicians and celebrities.
Never take politics as World Cup priding oneself with one's favorite team. because superiority and hooliganism lead to degradation and stupidity.
Patriotism is a big shame in the globalization era!
Well said !
So most of your friends are right wing? Or do you mean you don't have many friends that call themselves anarchists? :D I also don't know many anarchists, but most of my (better) friends are left wing oriented. I wouldn't call myself an anarchist ( although I like the idea of (social) anarchism. I just find it very hard to imagine a world where a situation like that is achievable), I am more of a 'new left'-person :D
As far as party affiliation goes I don't have one. I'm an independent. In terms of ideology I'm what I like to call a green libertarian. In other words libertarianism but with the recognition that humans must "keep their hands to themselves" when it comes to animals and must explicitly reserve and protect vast and appropriate territories both on land and sea for all animals to live as nature intended: Wild and free of human interference or involvement in their lives. In other words, abolitionist veganism. I don't call myself a pure libertarian or attach myself strictly to the libertarian party because at the present time they obviously don't believe in animal rights very much, if at all. However, the libertarian ideology is still what resonates with me the most because I do believe people should have the right to make their own choices in life and enjoy the fruits of their labor. As I said, my only issue with libertarianism is that it currently does not prioritize the rights of animals as I want it to. So, rather than attaching myself to the libertarian party or any other party I'm a free-agent independent who votes for whichever politicians come closer to what I call a green-libertarian ideology, regardless of party, and who especially prioritize animal rights veganism.
