Started out being just vaguely liberal - supporting things like welfare because it just seemed like the decent thing to do.
Moved on to democratic socialism based on the belief that if you tried to implement economic equality without political equality, then the powerful will enrich themselves; if you try to implement political equality without economic equality, then the wealthy will buy power.
Then happened to come across the history of the Histadrut - a union that actually owned businesses? It made me consider possibilities I had never heard of before.
During a strike at GM one Independence Day, I posted a version of the Declaration of Independence, rewritten such that it was the employees declaring independence from the executives (instead of the colonies declaring independence from the king). Someone told me it looked like anarcho-syndicalism.
I'd never heard of it before, but I looked it up... and that's what I've been calling myself ever since.
