Nope, I joined because the world is a fubar place... and, finally people were standing up and using their constitutionally protected rights.

No, I joined to support freedom of expression and protest kleptocracy and police brutality. I'm pretty OK with most (not all) anarchist principles though.

Yes.  I found the "anyones a leader" dynamic to be inspiring.  Plus I felt like it was the first movement to come along in my lifetime (30+ years) that was really doing something different.
