As people who occupy marginal social spaces, we often find ourselves interacting with or part of other, often not political (or not necessarily political) subcultures. One of the most obvious examples would be punk and its long history with anarchy, but would also include media fandoms, furries, gaming circles, and others.
North American anarchist subculture doesn’t offer much to elders. A lot of the time it can actively repel them. Sometimes this is referred to as “burn-out,” but that term can also be used to describe other situations where someone decides that the costs of participating in something are no longer worth paying. The burn-out that is related to aging isn’t limited to the frustrations of losing over and over again. It comes from many places, especially in a system that manages aging just as much as it manages labor, health, public policy, war, and the environment.
