I'm interested in the breakdown of political feeling in here generally. I personally am an anarchist, I like syndicalism as a revolutionary strategy. As a teenager I was always disillusioned with the state of US politics, and the state of the world that had arose from the actions of the US empire throughout the world. I read more and that disillusionment only ever got stronger. When I was about 13 I started reading what little Marx i could get my hands on (printing the communist manifesto on my middle school library printers) and I liked the description of the proletariat, downtrodden through history, through countless different political and economic systems, eventually always comes to a point of revolutionary change. Well I grew up and read more, experienced more, and gradually became aware that the state was not and never would be acting in my interests. I realized further that the apparatus of the state exists solely for domination, domination of one class over another through violent force. I realized the only way to break this cycle of classes dominating one another, is to remove the mechanism by which they domination happens. Smash the state and capital no longer has a strong arm with which to bludgeon workers, smash capitalism, and we can finally live free from the systemic exploitation that keeps the vast majority of humans in desperate poverty, without an avenue for escape.
I'll leave links for some of the reading materials that have been formative for me, I'd love to hear everyone else's story.
