I was mostly going through threads on tourism and travel on raddle. Because sometimes I wonder if my anti travel views are more influenced by growing up in conservative rural town more than actual anarchist ideas. But tbh, it seems I'm right on the mark with being against traveling to places without a good purpose.

Uff, this was way before my time

I remember commenting on some thread about how tourism is latestge kapitalism (not so much travel though, travel can part of lifestylism)

I will try to chime in after checking the post, my own position is derivated from reading the zones texts from h.bey

Tbh I think Lifestylists travel falls under tourism often. If u just go to a place to go see it that seems like tourism to me. I think anarchist travel is generally controdictory unless down very specificakky with a specific intent to gain an additional benefit.

Idk, just traveling to see the world seems like something that gives me bad vibes. And even if u have a purpose for going there. Tho I am mixed bc I wonder how much I hurt my politics by bit going to an area more populated by people who don't live the way I grew up which is developing racist white people with a mix of poor urban black people for a but and hopefully more in the future.

And tbh, even that I'm only really okay with bc it's close enough an I have family in that area so it feels more like me sticking around in my area that I have lives adjacent to rather than forsay if I went abroad to a nonwhite country which often gives me bad vibes due to power dynamics. And even then I'm not doing it for the purpose of seeing new places but economic necessity as I have been priced out of where I live now by agriculture companies.
