Whatta? Black Bloc is (was) a tactic, not a fashion or a group. Just a tactic that became a uniform - like casual culture within football firms.
Like other have said previously there are thousands of anarchistic projects of this kind going on in any country on the planet. Some aren't even very clear on whether they are and since (at least for anarchist and not liberterians-posing-as-anarchists) ideals aren't as relevant as practical change - why even call them anarchist? Its as irrelevant as a flag.
Black bloc that remains is just a function perverted into a fashion and identity-politics - so basically pointless. Rioting for no reason is the same thing. A combination of boredom and postmodernistic identity shopping.

Good lord ... I loved Children of Men but like @23 this kinda gave me the starts of an anxiety attack.
Maybe its that "Nothing you ever can do will help and we are all doomed" kinda feel?
As for that "get the physics right" above... please realism is not a good start for a fantasy. In the same way we shouldn't base our research on scifi but be inspired by it, we shouldn't base our scifi on actual research and science, just be inspired by it.

As the son of an alcoholic - DTMFA!!!! Ffs. He is doing the typical alcoholic blame game shit with you, trying to justify his own dependency by some dumping the reason for it outside of his own control and in the same time use it to manipulate you.
... and for anyone upset that Dan used "the sadz". FU. I don't give a good god damn if someone piss on an alcoholics sense of pride when he or she self-medicates. It may be a depression but its also yet another reason to drink, which makes you even more depressed and now you have another reason to drink.
He has the boo-hoo-whiny-little-boy-sadz and nothing else until he find a therapist and stop using his sadz to give himself allowance to drink more and abuse and manipulate the people around him.
An alcoholic is a person without control over his own drugabuse and should be treated with the same attitude as any other drug addict. You don't go "oh poor depressed heroin-addict, here take some more oh and your girlfriend should take the brunt of your manipulation and cruelties while at it". Fuck that.
DTMFA and do it telling him full and well that it is his alcoholism and emotional abuse that drove you away and if he starts crying or having a fit then smile happily while you walk out the door. You did good.

And now we know - it takes ten posts for a slog-thread to go south even if all participants have the same opinion on the central subject.
Next week well test how long it takes for trolls to be in a majority in a slog-thread.
This has been Slog Social Studies, Goodnight everyone!
