I am also a member of a market anarchist forum. Someone brought up the topic of graffiti and called us "Stupid Paint Thinner Huffing Bastards". Apparently, her van was tagged. Here is my reply:
"Wanna hear something funny? I'm a graffiti artist."
She wrote back:
"Wanna hear something funnier? You know those squares that draw superheros on their notebooks in jr high? They're cooler."
I then wrote:
"Although I disagree with writing on private property, graffiti is a fun way to piss off the state.
Plus, we get to climb things."
She then wrote:
"Graffiti doesn't piss off the state it encourages them. They use it as an excuse to hire more cops and create curfews for minors--even though that prevents nothing."Â*
Someone else came in and wrote:
"So, when you spray your shit on public property, like seats and windows of a New York subway train, causing negative externalities to people riding the train, this 'pisses off the state' how exactly?
If I ever saw graffiti 'artists' at work, I would take their spray bottles and spray that paint in their eyes and mouths. They deserve that."
What is your opinion on this matter?
Shrink, maybe you should tell her your 'crew' name next time, then she'd have more reason to laugh, a 13 year old whos on an anarchist forum, who ALSO writes for a crew named "SPRAY CAN FIENDS"
