Depending on the level of crime, the longer you do it the more chance you have of being caught.

Either switch things up a bit, or use the ill gained money to kickstart your own legit business (but still not without it's pitfalls, as it still could be taken away from you if they could prove it), or live frugally and keep your head down.

Honestly if I could I would do a couple big hits and lay low and live in a van for the rest of my life. Travel the world and shit, that’d be awesome. But idk I could probably figure out a way to live pretty cheap, if I still lifted and counterfeited for gas. Hell I might do that. Realistically there is nothing stopping me from doing that, for a little bit at least.

Would just like to remind you that rule one of this forum explicitly forbids capitalist bootlicking. This is, at the absolute best, skirting the fucking line. I'll just give you a warning this time, but if I see more pro-capitalist bullshit from you the next step will be a temp ban.

Is this ziq talking to himself through alts or which other of you three is it?

I don't need to use an alt to address a little shitlick like you.

Definately alts. And to add to that, you either took over titan's old account so you could shit post, or you're looking the other way while he posts on here even though he was supposedly banned globally.

Don't spout pro-capitalist thoughts and longing for the small tyranny of being a small business owner. That's not ok. This is an anti-capitalist website and forum, and any embrace of capitalism is not tolerated.

If you want to know why, feel free to investigate what illegalism is, the theory behind it, and to ask questions.

It's a sign of great self-hatred to wish to become that which you claim to hate.

So let me get this straight, we aren't allowed to work or even run our own small business? Only allowed to shoplift and steal to live? that makes no sense

if you’d like to talk or read about work there’s f/worker. no one is saying you can’t work and steal. i’m sure many of us both have jobs and steal. that’s what Steal From Work Day is about actually.

what this is is an anti-capitalist forum, against bosses and capital. so yeah the forum is about shoplifting, stealing to live, sabotage, etc. essentially stealing from the rich. however this isn’t the darknet so i’d suggest keeping that in mind.

mfw when you think this is the point.

Maybe we are just a bunch of entitled tools.

If people work under you, then you're exploiting them and enriching yourself with their labor.

Green_Mountain_Makhno wrote

I never said anything about not being allowed to work.

Being a small business owner is the same as being a landlord - you're looking to build your financial success and security on the backs of the poor.

I am confused. What if I want to open my own business as a chair maker. If it is just me would this be against the praxis of illegalism?

alex wrote (edited )

illegalism is criminality as a lifestyle.

i don’t think anyone gives a shit if you, a singular person, is a business of 1 selling chairs you made, it’s just not illegalist and therefore not what this forum is about

MeNoKnow wrote

I understand that. The question was asked what do you plan to do. I lift tools to help me with the land. At some point in the future working the land is going to become a seven day job and I doubt I will have much time to lift except for food but I hope I will be able to grow everything I want to eat.

If it's just you and no one works for you then you're not a capitalist. You don't exploit people by controlling the means to their survival by making chairs. Plenty of craftspeople are self-employed.

Uwusketamine445 wrote

Where would you source the wood for the chairs? Other people’s labor, how was the building your chair company is housed in made? Other people’s labor. It’s like printing t-shirts, those blanks were probably made by somebody being exploited. So even if you own a coop where everyone splits profits there is still, somewhere down the line where somebody is being exploited. Usually at least. If you want to start a coop than that’s chill, but it takes work to ethically source the equipment, resources, etc.

With that logic you may as well not wear any clothes unless you built them from scratch, because of the source

Now you need to go a step further and consider the source itself and it's impact on not just the environment but also the beings living within that environment, and their relation to other 'bodies of power' and their desire for those very same raw materials.

I am slowing working on this. Myself and two friends bought the land. We purchased a sawmill. The plan is to build several log cabin homes from the land. The chairs will all be made from greenwood sourced on the land. The only people we would have to hire is for concrete work but they will not be employed by us. And we may need help to build a man made lake. All of us know how to use heavy equipment but the lake idea might be beyond our skillset and the county may require us to use a licensed company.

If you have this much disdain for illegalism then I guess you don't need to be here. Bye.
