i'm so fucking done with thinkers. First of all, most good things have already been said. Like, at least a thousand years ago a lot of the time. But it's still up to use to properly understand words, and translate them into ideas through experience and context. Also academics: there's so much academic anarchism, marxism, left-com stuff, etc. and it's always neat to see what the avante garde nerds have latched onto recently and what new stuff is being put out, but the problem is that there's so much information and thoughts being made, and 90% is super insular and like, inbred. The academic nerds in general have more developed and better ideas than just total mouthbreathing MLs, but they still are very disconnected from actionable thought and getting their thought diffused into (counter)culture while retaining their insights.
This is just kind of the nature of academia though. I really wish anarchists globally had a bit of shared culture, sharing, and memory that lived outside of academia or small and insular circles. Everything good has already been said, and it's just not readily seen or understood.
I dont even know if this has a solution, or if the solution is just trying to keep a foot in both worlds, and for people to keep writing about their ideas even if only some people get the message and are impacted by it.
Anyways, the real test of ideas is their application and success. Waiting…. 🕰️
