It's possible that those behaviors match the identities you suggest, but I think it naive to assume that it doesn't match most people in American society. Even if not middle class, many Americans, including poor people, are self-involved and apolitical, looking out primarily for themselves. If they identify with or care about belonging to something bigger them themselves, it's usually based on family, religious, nationalistic, or racial lines.

If anarchists in the US are self-involved, it's a reflection of broader trends taking place in society.
