Are you an Anarchist? The answer might surprise you!
- Be respectful
- Don’t be a nazi
- Argue about the point and not the person
- This is not the place to debate the merits of anarchism itself. While discussion is encouraged, getting in your “epic dunks on the anarkiddies” is not. As a result of the instance’s poor moderation policies and hostility toward anarchists by default, lemmygrad users are encouraged not to post here, though not explicitly disallowed if they aren’t just looking to start a fight.

It might be time to reclaim the word “libertarian.”
i got it. We need to liberate the libertarians!
For context, my oldest friend has been trying to unionize his largely conservative coworkers at a gun factory. Even the people that are more receptive to leftist ideas are very suspicious of “liberals.” It’s a complicated problem. Many of them would identify as independents, but are strongly attracted to libertarian aesthetic and bywords.
It’s impressive how much labels can impact people’s perceptions, when they identify as ‘against liberals’ (when they value freedoms!) or as ‘left’ or as ‘right’. So I can see why the thread poster wants these more neutral synonyms.
this might be a challenge not even i would accept lol
I was gonna say “ libertarian socialist” but Idek
That’s a label that some people used (I think even the Libertarian Party of USA’s socialist caucus is called that…?) but I think the point of that comment is to make ‘socialist libertarian’ redundant! Socialists were called ‘libertarians’ before capitalists were. So why not use ‘libertarians’ vs ‘capitalist liberarians’, so long as you don’t mind clarifying the inevitable ‘what?’ every time ;)
I like this line of thinking, walk up to libertarians and tell them I’m also a libertarian lmao!
