I become a sorta Anarchist in late high school/earlu university through reading (complete nerd, read a lot of books, read all through school like I viewed it as reading time ), George Orwell (homage to catalonia), Ursula LeGuin (The Dispossessed) being the two most influential on me, I was always interested in Ideas and it was very much from a conceptual idealistic point of view. At Uni the Marxists really rubbed me the wrong way, their "democratic centralism" just looked like junior fascism. I've Mellowed a bit these days, I view Anarchy as more Zen Buddism sort thing, its how you treat people. I live in a small housing co-op (fell into through Dating a Girl) where we maintain, and share common spaces, (Big hall, garden, laundry lounge)so I kinda living some sort of anacho-socialist reality.
