    Anti Anti Anti Anti this Anti that Take a step out of this negative thinking and tell us what you stand for.

    "Just believe in something"
    -Youth Brigade

    I stand for a living wage (ideally i stand for the concept of wages to be abolished), a sustainable environment, a diet that causes the least amount of suffering (Vegan for me), to defeat the fear our culture has created of our own bodies, and a lifestyle free of systematic violence.

    Thats only a few of the many things that make me who i am, what about you?

    Well, seeing as this is an anarchist website, it doesn't take much thought compensation as to what people stand for as opposed as to what (anti) against. Being anti-something isn't just an open statement. Obviously to be opposed to something, you'll need another idea as replacement, an not meaning to be redundant, but seeing as this is an anarchist website, the alternatives should be known. As far as touchy subjects such as police, and jails, there are many existing threads with discussion on these.

    I'm sure that typically (hopefully) for the most part, this website stands for

    "Anti-fascist" - against fascism of all sorts, racism, sexism, homophobia etc. (thought you may find here that speciesism is another touchy subject, and yes, there is a thread for that.), and implies egalitarianism as an alternative. Though the upholding of anti-fascism may seem fascist itself, it's falls along the principle of intolerant towards intolerance, and freedom of hate speech is NOT allowed.

    "Anti-Capitalist" - An obvious response. Replace capitalism with some sort of direct democratical council version of libertarian socialism. Workers control over the means of production. "One mans abilities to another mans needs" minus the government to enforce this.(libertarian communism, social anarchism, left anarchism, etc.)

    "Anti-authoritarian"
    - See anti-fascism. It may seem authoritarian to "enforce" non-authoritarianism, or promote a lack of hierarchy, seeing as individualists love to shit bricks about this, but is it wrong to oppose discrimination and abuse of other, for the sake of "individual liberty"

    "and... Punk" - This is obvious. No times wasted explaining this.

    I realized about 3/4ths of the way through this post I could've redirected to the points of unity, but that'd been a waste of type.

    There are also vegans/ vegetarians here, as well as straight edgers, but not everyone promotes these ideologies as necessarily correct or incorrect, rather than supporting them with information as to potentially help others make up their minds about said subjects, if an idea hasn't already been set in stone with them.

    yess, brilliantly summarized, so I have only to add the recommented reading:
    Aldous Huxley's Brave New World - plus a free weekends contemplation on the difference between "tolerated" comfortable survival and true human living...
