Lol. I decided to edit it to just “leftist anarchist.” He considers himself a radical, but that’s in comparison to politics as usual, not in comparison to other anarchists.
The anarchist part, to him (and me), just means believing hierarchy is harmful. The leftist part tempers it, because there’s a basis of “We all deserve quality of life,” rather than a libertarian anarchist, “Fuck everyone else; they should just try harder” perspective.

He’s also capable of being a realist — he votes — so ultimately, yes, a good thing.
