not enough can beoccupy-portland-sign said about lending a hand. a revolution is the sum of many. many fantastic individuals who realize that things aren’t how they should be and they set about to help change the world. but this can’t happen if individual comrades don’t realize that each of us has a responsibility, the least of which is to clean up after ourselves and to help out fellow revolutionaries. being an anarchist is not about being selfish or doing whatever pleases you at the expense of your community. it is about building community, creating positive and lasting change, building anti-oppressive structures and then fighting for the coming revolution. my uncle once said, “always be hungry for knowledge”. i live by that. i seek to learn and to share. and to build and to care. and i hope that through my individual actions i can inspire a misguided revolutionary to rise up and build the commune with me.
