Topic of the Week: Reflection
What are some examples of things you've strongly believed in the past but don't currently, actions or protests you once thought were effective, or moments that changed the course of your political/anti-political growth or somehow informed the way you view or approach things today? What caused you to change or move away from your former views, methods, assumptions, etc.? Has a negative experience ever proven useful for provoking some sort of personal turning point? Has someone else's failures, negative experience, writing, report-back, feedback, advice, criticism, or even trolling affected you in ways that caused you to grow out of or move away from a certain tendency? How is your anarchism informed by failure? How has failure strengthened your views? Do you have any ideas of how you will continue forward in the face of future failures, or if your current trajectory is fruitless or proves to be counter-productive somehow? What's your most embarrassing moment as an anarchist?
