everyone is equal, however some are more equal than others

It seems to be a truth in that "anarchists" and left liberals are very aware of hierarchies, and so forth have a strict pecking order among themselves.. a sort of unconscious hierarchical structure, where as it is very difficult to operate on equal terms/level as comrade to comrade.
Instead we are left with trotskyist behavior patterns across the board.. whereas those with a large network base or with the cool and the gang ( on fashbook and elsewhere) declare themselves important.. more important than anyone else... with permission to troll and abuse others

so forth the Orwellian statement " everyone is equal, however some are more equal than others" becomes the truth..

And those that don't fit into this picking order or wont accept it.. are immediately outed by any means possible.. in true trotskyist fashion.

it is almost impossible to operate in such an environment, especially if you are in a hard situation socially or in general life.

where is this movement heading from the revolutionaries in the beginning of the 1900s to...?

What is your experiences and thoughts on the movement and the picking order within it ?

Many people on the so called Left can be very ignorant or being intellectual very annoying and doing in their daily behaviour sadly exactly what they claim to be against. Like being anti-hierarchy, being for liberty but still looking down upon everything that doesn't fit their world view, or excluding them from having a say.
Like the leftisch ladies I once spoke explaining to me that EZLN/Libertad coffee was 'bad coffee' because some people in it have resisted power with 'violence'.!?

The only way 'Anarchy' can work, is in total liberty, that means every kind of Hierarchic structure (means opression) is bad, even probably if it is a structure voluntarely chosen by the people itself.
There are no 'good bosses' so to speak in my point of view, and they are (even more important) not needed.

To keep it short, I can understand why some might people fall for Hierarchic thinking, but that doesn't make it allright.

well said, this problem of certain comrades is becoming a serious problem ive been in contact with at 3 individuals all ending their activism just because of the hierarchy building and backstabbing by some individuals. And if you break consensus they behave like religious fanatics toward you..

It often seems like a fight to win any kind of discussion.
Often people dont seem to really care for a solution or a real conversation, not even to spread their (true) opinion. They seem to be focussed on 'winning' alone, while there is nothing to win too often in such behaviour or in winning some kind of conversation, we only loose this way.

Sometimes our best and true allies we will find in strange places, or at least often not in the world of activists itself or known 'anarchist' places.
We find them at anywhere....not being present there(: hanging in train stations, factories, playgrounds, wastelands and alleys, perhaps not even aware of any anarchist lecture or theory at all..just being' it.
If we live and are everywhere', if we stay away from the backstabbers, their 'institutions' and 'experts' of the activist/(A) world as much as we can, we can secure/protect a bit of our 'pride', our own independence, our own thoughts and love of anarchism (will be less affected by the negative vibes of other people or 'anarchists'....never confuse them (the sukkaz and experts) with the idea of 'Anarchy' itself, which is something beautiful (people can make everything look like shit and make others run away..they are not anarchists, they are it's enemies') and we are able to create something better ourselves, just learning from their shitload of answers, exclusion, fingerpointing, false accusing and critics...that we will never ever become like them.
