My leftism 

I'm new at all this and don't really know whereof I speak. I got that white boy confidence that my lived experience is broadly applicable and I'm working on that.

That being said --

I primarily identify as a Libertarian Socialist. I'm not necessarily anti-state but I do believe the state should be absolutely no larger than necessary to improve its citizens' lives AND I believe that there needs to be a way to opt out of that state.

I have read a little bit about Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and I think they have good ideas. I don't think I'm a tankie, I don't think the Soviets and Chinese were beyond reproach, I don't support the government of the DPRK, but so far I haven't found much disagreement with MLM principles.

I think that there is no reason the vanguard party cannot (and indeed really very much should) incorporate anarchist organizational principles, and am reading more on anarchism to see if this is in fact possible.

Belated introduction 

Hi, I'm a middle-aged autistic layabout dilettante. My special interest hashtags include:

I'm a vocalist who is just starting guitar (again), a writer who has never published anything, a gnostic heathen druid. I'm in an mono-ish pairing and working on buying a sailboat to live aboard and sail round the world whilst writing.

Behold! Spider-Dog-Worm Theory! Thanks to my comrade and colleague @NormalPopsicle for assistance making it, and the original idea in the first place.

Just threw together a little bash script to demonstrate conclusively that Advantage is statistically equivalent to a +3 on a d20 roll.

"essential workers" apparently includes construction crews on the American border wall and the CGL pipeline across unceded Wet'suwet'en land. remember the real priorities of the systems we want to save us: profit, white supremacy, genocide.

Esperanto word of the day: praŝarglekisto - "bootlicker"

Lenin: Down with the liars who are talking of freedom and equality for all, while there is an oppressed sex, while there are oppressor classes, while there is private ownership of capital, of shares, while there are the well-fed with their surplus of bread who keep the hungry in bondage. Not freedom for all, not equality for all, but a fight against the oppressors and exploiters, the abolition of every possibility of oppression and ...

Think I've worked out a solution that lets me keep Enterprise, just won't be living on board for a while.

Not ideal but still okay.
