concept, except mutual aid has more of a "pozzy" connotation, whereas reciprocity is more neutral or philosophical, the latter is like a personal and non-religious karma. In terms of real life action, one of the major issues with anarchist mutual aid is the entanglement with institutions.

I think this whole thing can be improved if anarchists genuinely are trying to be friends or get to know the people they are helping in a serious way...but in a more standard situation your gonna find moralism, the savior complex, reddish dogma and political correctness, etc.
