I'm not sure. I think one should balance out the desire to lesson the harm of a job combined with the culture/propaganda of a job or worksite, as well as being able to support oneself and one's family, as well as the ability to support anarchist/leftist projects with either time or money (or both) should be examined.

If every one of us only does menial or custodial work then we are going to continue to struggle to gather enough resources to actually do anything. Then we're just all still stuck exactly where capital wants us to be forever.

Personally I love the small farmer suggestion, it's my goal to get there someday. In the meantime, I work in education. It's a sweet-spot for me that lets me use my skills and pays enough to support my family, and to hopefully get to contribute to my farmer goal and to the support of projects I believe in.
