Hi everyone, great community! I personally don't have a 'curriculum vitae' in anarchism or anything like that... I understand anarcho-spirituality as the state when one forgets about names, culture, color, race, ideals..Then what's left is something that doesn't know about 'good' or 'bad', Proudhon, Bakunin or Tolstoy and his 'christian anarchism'.

If I had to place myself somewhere, I'd say it's more of a green anarchism, social ecology stand. I think there is a lot of un-learning to do before we can qualify ourselves as spiritual beings.Thanks for reading and looking forward to some interesting conversations. Keep the community active!

Part of what many of these social constructs which you see as inhibiting can DO for us, is give structure to our experiences.

I think there's a lot to this.

It reminds me of something Foucault I believe said about the construct "homosexual," which has only existed in the modern sense for about 100 years – it may be in some sense an artificial construction, but it does facilitate people coming together as a group and fighting for their rights. (Whereas this is harder if instead of "gays" we have scattered individuals who happen to have attractions for people of the same gender).
