Work sabotage, I hack all my former employers, very productive shit while at work. Along with the gangs at Uproot, we train the proles how to hack, make and build shit.

That sounds really interesting! I hope you'll make some posts about stuff like that around here, assuming it's safe to do so.

I made a Vimeo account for these stuff. Stay tuned, more videos coming!

A few of my friends are illegalists / antiwork, e.g. trimming weed or doing sex work, and usually that helps them have free time.

Other friends try to find a way to work doing something they're good at that can be helpful, like academia, or community gardens.

I'm still waiting on a UBI to fund my revolutionary activities. Haha.

Seriously though, you have to make certain sacrifices. Learn to live cheaply. I worked in IT 40 to 60 hours a week. Absolutely miserable, but the pay was good. I left that job and started a market garden/farm with a friend. I do that during the day and at night I work 20 hrs a week dispatching for a mom and pop restaurant delivery service that respects me and my politics though theyre silly liberals. I still find time to do food not bombs and other things every now and then, plus donate my overages to them. I would like to do more, like a guerrilla Cafe/restaurant weekly, best community building direct action tactic I've ever been part of in the past. Bartering and scavengimg goes a long way as well. Half of our veggies from the farm are traded for everything from booze to labor to massages, which every farmer knows the value of a good massage.

Well pretty much these are your options:

  1. Marry into the top of the social/economic political structure
  2. Become so sick, you qualify for disability, then scrape your way along the bottom of the social/economic political structure

Once you have accomplished that, you now have the resource: *Time
One of six aspects necessary to actually change anything.

Us too. It makes me angry that my "disabilities" are either iatrogenic, sociological, or completely fixable if I was in a different socioeconomic caste but it is what it is.

As we have discussed elsewhere, raising kids IS what I am doing to make the world a better place, but it's more like gardening than stamping out widgets at a factory and not all of my adult kids think the world wouldn't be better off if I wasn't in it.

Laughing at myself as I pull myself out of this funk finding out what happened to Rod Coronado, Marius Mason, ELF and ALF in general and looking a myself wallowing in self-pity because I don't WANT to grow watermelons or explain nature to a digital native, I WANNA BURN DOWN WALMART!!!!!!!!!!

I think it also helps morale to go a bit deeper than hero worship and recognize that the people we look up to struggle with the same issues we do.

hth anyway
