I am not meaning literal night dreams (if you have funny ones though, feel free to share them lol)

I mean do you have dreams for the future things you would like to do in the future. It can be lifestyle, projects, anything :)

The way my delve has been going into folk punk. I might want to be in a folk punk band 😳.

I am also sick of suburban life and being surrounded by stuff and paying bills. So taking the family in a van or RV is tempting.

edit: lol imagine being a family man living in a van driving your elementary age kids to your folk punk shows.

That's sad :( You don't have any dreams or projects even on the short term?

taoism might be for you instead?

I am interested in taoism, how does taoism is linked to this and anarchy?

I'll be done with school in a year. I'd like to do legal work for criminal defense, maybe working for the innocence project or a civil rights firm. And then using the money from my work-job to run a distro on the weekends, spreading a little anarchy by tabling around the state. Maybe eventually running an infoshop.

I don't remember ever having dreams (the planning for the future kind). Is that a thing that comes naturally to most people?

What an interesting question. Who knows? It might be enculturation, but you don't have any thoughts as to what you'd like for your future?

I suppose I want my future to be an improvement compared to my past. But I don't have any objective idea of what improvement looks like.

The cultural thing seems to make some sense at least. I think until very recently people just expected to keep living like their ancestors did.

Interesting. I never considered that question. You don't have inspirations or any idea about the future?

Well right now I really want to get a divorce. Not sure if this counts as a 'dream'. Beyond that, no idea.

I want to form a commune or like a type of intergenerational community (maybe not a commune per se) in the woods with my wife and our eventual kid(s) and a few other families or friends. I'd get a flock of ducks and I'd like to plant like a million trees, especially chestnuts. Ideally, I'm imagining this is something we do as capitalism kind of crumbles away and we are able to lay the framework for a new society from this. That's the dream anyways.

It feels like it could happen, depending on what neoliberals do (fail to do) to address climate change. Even if capitalism doesn't end then I'll still take a few ducks in a backyard, I guess.

I want to do something new with a very old and static system. I want to appropriate a music genre heavily infested with reactionary sentiment and use it as an ideological vessel towards things like anti-capitalism and anti-statism. My dream is to overtake traditional old-time banjo playing with songs about burning down banks and killing your boss. Already got a fiddler so now I just need a washboardist and a flat footer.

Finish school, hopefully become a social worker. Then maybe go back to school again to become a counsellor. Idk. Just working my way towards some kind of stable career with a liveable wage that allows me to help people. Eventually have a family with my partner, she wants at least one bio kid, I want to foster or adopt at least one.

Practice writing and eventually get featured/published or just known as an anarchist writer.

Maybe help start a co-op or some kind of radical project.

Make art, learn to grow food, to play guitar.

To survive. Collapse has me grateful for every day. Another day with food, clean water, and a warm safe place to sleep is a win.

SnowCode OP wrote

But do you not want to change your lifestyle or something like that to be less dependent on our actual systems and therefore increasing your chances at survival?

loveluna4 wrote

I kind of did. Last year I moved away from a coastal city affected by wildfires and drought. Now I'm out in the woods.

SnowCode OP wrote

Oh, hope you're safe. How are you doing?

loveluna4 wrote

Yah I'm safe, and better off than most people I think. I'm just in a funk. I recently gave up smoking pot after being a daily stoner for 20 years and I'm struggling to enjoy my old hobbies: playing guitar, working out, and video games. My lungs just couldn't handle the smoke anymore. I was wheezing and coughing all the time. I tried edibles, but they make me nauseous. So I figured I should just quit. I was tired of needing to get high all the time anyways. It took up so much of my time and energy (and money).
