What is so terrible though is their seem to be so many of them in the so-called radical community, people who don’t even have the guts to say things to your face or admit they too are full of crap a lot of the time. The people who are involved in campaigns or radical projects that appear only to be involved for an ego boost and are constantly making you aware of who they are and what they’ve done. Others are just sad fucks who talk the talk but live off the money left by mummy and daddy and never will really have to do a days work in their lives. They just whine and moan at the state of the world and other people, when really they should just take stock of themselves. Most of the time they seem to have there own underlying issues they haven’t dealt with.
So what’s behind this issues rant?
The problem is when gossip starts; you end up with fucking half truths because you only get one side of the story. In my case my wife had developed post-natal depression and refused to get help for it and started forming a relationship with someone else, and then kicked me out (which is the bit these people don’t get because she says differently). I took the money that was in the bank which was £200 quid as I had nowhere to go and my ex-wife’s uncle is a millionaire who regularly contributes to members of his family. Me I had NADDA! Even my ex-wife’s mother said it was a good idea to do so (I bet she didn’t tell them that!).
I went to Ireland to stay with close friends as I had nowhere else to go and was back in about a month with serious depression and a dependency, hoping that I could sort it out with my wife who had already moved her new boyfriend in. If that weren’t the case why the fuck would I have come back? I was also not a particularly mature 24 year old and could possibly have done things differently. But it was ten bloody years ago and none of their fucking business anyway!!
Today my wife still hasn’t been treated and causes chaos wherever she goes (apparently this is my fault because of what I did. WOW! I’m so powerful!) and I have had custody of my children since 2000 after three years of battling to get them. My kids are happy apart from the effects their mothers illness has on them and the gossip these sad twats are throwing around. They are growing up to be fine Libertarian lads with a great sense of community spirit and a healthy disrespect to oppressive bastards, whoever they are.
I have another mate who recently got a serious kicking and hospitalisation for beating up his ex partner. Only problem was when the woman was telling everyone all the gory details which led to his hospitalisation, she forgot to mention he was trying to physically prevent her from throwing herself off a multi-story car park at the time. Information that might have made a difference perhaps?
This shit also goes on in Libertarian politics between groups on a national level. The animosity that is so prevalent between anarchist groups is as bad now as ever it was. The gossip and bating that is constantly bandied about is frightening and what the hell must it look like to outsiders?
“I think I’ll get involved in anarchism as I just love squabbling about who should have done what. They really appear to be having such a ball! Who cares about the political message I’m not hearing! I want to be one of these folks”.
The bitching and gossiping which goes on constantly stops people going to actions and demos. ‘Such and such organised an event so we aren’t going!’ Meanwhile the whole reason for the action is forgotten about and people end up suffering more because we haven’t got our shit together.
One of the many things Norwich Anarchists can be proud of is that this is pretty much extinct in our group. We all come from different organisations and leave our colours at the door so to speak. This is however precisely the kind of example we should be passing on when we go back to our main organisations though isn’t it? It seems to me that if we don’t then we are doing ourselves out of building an anarchist alternative that so many people are desperately looking for. While that is happening, the bastard state is ringing its hands and laughing at us, and divide and rule is merrily dancing around the fuckers.
I know you don’t want any advice from me but fuck you, you bought the paper! A little less gossip and more attention to our own rubbish will in the long term benefit our whole movement. Otherwise we are nothing more than an ageing movement of sad acts, bitter at what could’ve been if only the other fucker had done it!
Why not save the anger for those who really deserve it and move forward?!
The rest of them? GET A LIFE YOU SAD INADEQUATE FUCKERS! YES, YOU ARE GETTING OLD, ARE LESS ATTRACTIVE TO THE OPPOSITE SEX AND ONE DAY ARE GOING TO DIE! DEAL WITH IT!
