Someone reblogged my angry rant about how vandalism ends up mostly hurting lower class people with a ridiculous privilege deny-y rant about how anything that supports the legitimacy of property supports the legitimacy of the state.

Like... okay this is why I REALLY HATE anarchism.

I said "don't trust" on my tumblr but honestly it's more like... IF YOUR INSISTANCE THAT THE STATE IS EVIL GOES SO FAR AS TO SAY THAT CONCERN ABOUT THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY RELATIVELY OPPRESSED AND MAY ONLY, I DON'T KNOW, BE SURVIVING BECAUSE OF THE EXISTENCE OF THINGS POWERED BY THE STATE, YOU'RE JUST A PRIVILEGED ASSHOLE.

Holy shit this is pissing me off right now.

It's at least partially because I AM ONLY FUCKING ALIVE RIGHT NOW BECAUSE OF THE GOVERNMENT.

And, I don't know, maybe violence against property is also INCREDIBLY FUCKING INTIMIDATING.  Do you think people who work at a store you go smash the windows of is going to feel safer knowing you've challenged their capitalist oppressors?

What the fuck.

I'm certainly not a fan of half the shit the government (or the corporate feudal overlords) are doing, but I'm not going to trust anyone who wants to destroy it completely without putting some fucking thought into how it might effect people in positions of less privilege.  And I don't particularly trust communities to work everything out without completely screwing over the disabled people in the absence of a government.

Besides 3/4 of the people I interact with are not in a position to benefit from their local communities.

...now I'm worried I'm going to piss off my friends.  Agh. >.> But yeah I a) am basically only surviving and having any quality of life right now because of social security, and b) I don't trust anything that isn't the government any more than I trust the government.
