I am an anarchist after all this time, I cooperate with others by choice
I have enough of everything I need and that enough is reasonably secure
I am very privileged, it wasn’t like this when we were trying to keep the kiddies housed and fed
There aren’t many ways to coerce me and I have little urge to take on the burden of coercing others.
There was a time, when was doing some work where someone had a need to attack my reputation. That was a useful experience. I learned to manage my need for approval from others.
I still respond to feedback from people whose opinion I respect and I don’t resent the ones who are confused.
I’m old though and don’t have as much stake in life as I did but I enjoy doing some useful work.
Mostly people are busy they neither know or care that I exist – that’s nice
