Dave Riley comes out

So it’s more than coming out. You can’t do it alone and certainly not in private.

And after all these years I am still a practising Leninist. Outwardly I look the same, but when I’m on a roll I’m at it hammer and sickle.

It’s true that we tend to be shunned in polite society. I admit that. There are some that pretend we aren’t there, that we somehow don’t exist just so that their sleep won’t be disturbed. Ours, unfortunately, is the politics that is not supposed to speak its name.

Well… at least he’s not, y’know, one of those crazed anarchists….

  • The rational anarchist believes that concepts, such as ‘state’ and ‘society’ and ‘government’ have no existence save as physically exemplified in the acts of self-responsible individuals. He believes that it is impossible to shift blame, share blame, distribute blame… as blame, guilt, responsibility are matters taking place inside human beings singly and nowhere else. But being rational, he knows that not all individuals hold his evaluations, so he tries to live perfectly in an imperfect world… aware that his efforts will be less than perfect yet undismayed by self-knowledge of self-failure.
