I know lots of anarchists. They all vote.
I don’t want to get into a big ole arguement about the tenets of various flavors of anarchism. But regardless of your ethos, stumping for political change, lamenting the the state of things. But doing nothing to impact them is self defeating. It’s basically just washing your hands of the situation and letting the things you’re opposed to continue.
Like I said I’m a fan of Moore as a big weird human being in general. But for all his talk you’ll never really hear anything about him actually getting involved in politics directly. Its not like he doesn’t vote but he’s out there organizing and protesting or something. And he hasn’t even been putting political ideas out there through his work the same way he used to.
He pretty much has. He’s still producing work. And some of its been quite successful. Lost Girls was apparently a best seller and got 5 stars from the NY Times book reviewer, they actually reviewed it as a regular book. Which was a fairly significant thing at that point.
Unfortunately Lost Girls is equal parts kinda gross and not that good.
And that’s sort of the thing. He’s still producing work, and he publishes it through a variety of smaller publishers with a creator owned model. Its just that not much of it has been all that good for over a decade. And even less of it has been relevant or a hit.
I’ve heard his most recent thing, Providence, is pretty good though.
