Having ‘political opinions’ is something that diminishes in significance for me.

There are a lot of different reasons for this, mostly related to experiences where expressing radical beliefs tends to put people off.

Another reason is that once the exploration of radical beliefs reaches a certain point, the notion of things political seem completely irrelevant.

Taxonomical Anarchy

The limits of the political becomes apparent when one begins to question power and hierarchies holistically. Such an approach requires discarding many preconceived notions—a number most people are seemingly uncomfortable trying to accomplish.

To put it simply, when radical enough, the most fundamental notions of how we structure and organize our society comes into question.

A lot of people don’t like this. They become reticent or dismissive.

The problem is that when we’re faced with the inefficiencies or are subject to the detriments that the organization and structure of society imposes on us (i.e. oppression), our questioning as to why this is stops when we start to question the dynamics of power.

I have been taught to accept the way things are without explanation.

I have been taught that even the expectation of an explanation is tantamount to heresy.

It feels like I’m not the only one who has been given these (or similar) answers.

Clipped Wings

The political, in compass or in structure, is an extension of this. To conform to it through label or process, is tacit acceptance of it.

Anarchism should be a complete rejection of this.

The political diminishes for me when the approach is truly revolutionary.
