I was on one of the two Anarchist forums I'm a member of, and I came upon this thread about the discrimination against white middle-class males. There was this bloke on there saying how he hated middle class people and how they shouldn't take part in the Anarchist cause. This struck me as a bit hypocritical. Surely Anarchists (myself included) want a classless society, free from hierarchy and exploitation? Then surely using class to discriminate against people goes contradictory to that? seems a tad hypocritical? Add to that the fact that a lot of the all-time great anarchist writers were middle-class? maybe that's just me being a middle-class white kid again. ho-hum.
