I know this probably isn't the best question for a place like this, but I'm just curious as to what motivates you (or even forces) you to be an illegalist. Me personally, living in poverty in a town full of rich assholes that discriminate against people with even a felony arrest record (emphasis on arrest, not conviction) has left me with no way to get a fulfilling job. I've searched far and wide, but the only places I've been able to find a job at are places that pay federal minimum wage for back breaking work that have no hope of moving up anywhere in the chain. And at that point, even with knowing someone who gets social security, its not enough to survive even with a job. All kinds of stupidly expensive bills eat away at all the money I earn, and the only way I've been able to feed us is to be an illegalist. Sometimes I just feel like there's no hope in this world, and society forces people to resort to that kind of philosophy, and it creates an inescapable loop of trying to help the people you love, but being ousted from society because you try to help those people
I guess I don't know what the point of this thread is, but I'm just curious as to what yall's life experiences are and how they affect your belief in this kinda thing. (without revealing too much personal info obv).
