always the same answer: the people affected would decide

how can we stop it before people are affected? Just yesterday morning I found an empty plastic bourbon bottle on the side of the road.

You can't stop someone from drinking and driving if that's their goal.

However, I imagine an anarchist society would be built around community instead of commerce, and there would be a focus on accessible public transportation. I don't see it as much of an issue.

Also, I don't think there will be as much incentive for people to get drunk as often if they aren't suffering under the brutal oppression of capitalism that requires them to escape.

For preventative measures, the same way that we do it right now - trying as hard as we can to embed "don't drink and drive" and "don't text and drive" into the collective unconscious. It's especially important for drunk driving, because drunk people aren't thinking clearly, so they need to remember that message when they're so drunk that they can't remember what day of the week it is. The only thing I would change is making the message less about the punishment they'd receive for driving drunk and more about the danger that it poses to their own lives, and the lives of others.

Burn their cars.

surprised you think burning the personal cars is desirable as a method

surprised you think people will have personal cars

surprised you think there will be cars, since you're a mod of f/anticiv

What is this 'will be' bullshit? I live in the present, not in some fantasy.

What anarchist doesn't support direct action?


Ant wrote

I'm not trying to fight with you, just interested.

re my first two points, burning a car seems polluting, and wasteful, respectively, is what I mean. Direct action is great, I just feel like there are better ways to deal with that problem

And the question we were asked is how "would" this stuff be taken care of

(since there's the context of this forum, and also the sort of question u/elon_satoshi asks, I take the )

meaning, "in some desirable future"
which is where I get the 'will be' from

If you don't burn it, the fuel it'll burn over the years will do a lot more damage than a small fire.

The cathartic reaction usually isn't the best one.
