note: this is supposed to be a personal blog and not a social justice blog.
not taht i believe there is anything wrong with social justice blog s, but i gomez also know s his voice can only represent itself armed with the wisdom and experiences of other people, their art, and their movements. it was never my objective to be “political” or “visionary”. my idea was to only to be myself. and come to find that i would like to help others do exactly that, but i am still experimenting with that right now.
honestly, i don’t even like the idea of representing anyone but myself, but i do seek the universal. i think there is something universal about certain pieces of literature, theories, ideas.
for example, i have never tried to fit my life into a theory, and i believe that is what brought me to anarchism. anarchism is less theory and more experience - practice falls under experience. it doesn’t need a label, but i use the word as a point of reference. no representation, only self-expression. no alienation, only self-discovery. no illegitimate hierarchy, only community. i have struggled with the word anarchism because i see it being misused as an identity, instead of a name for a struggle. however, i do believe there is some important theory behind anarchism that has not yet been fully explained… which i begin to try to explain recently.
in the end i would like to be someone who tells people a great secret, not a person who is part of a system that will subordinate people to only my way of thinking. that is my anarchism: the revelation of a great secret.
