Well, I have two full-time jobs, one of which asked me to work 8 hours of overtime. One is from 7:45am-4:30pm, the other is 10pm-6am, so on a good day I get about 4 hours of sleep - less if one of them asks me to work overtime. Isn't capitalism awesome?

that's so terrible. it's really hard to organize to change those conditions when you're so tired too. Are you coworkers chill?

Its tough to do anything other than survive, honestly. One of my jobs is backed by a decent union, albeit a very non-radical union. The other is pretty fiercely anti-union. I'm going to investigate unionizing that one and some others that are related to it. One of my workplaces has very chill people, the other is security, so it's pretty stocked with ex-cops, ex-soldiers, and guys who think they're "tactical" but are just bootlicking wannabes.

Hey, thanks :)

I really enjoyed your response to that "revolutionary marxist" - some great theory and well written stuff, deep without being too harsh.

I am glad you enjoyed the process of becoming. I have been wrong so many times, I try to be as humble as I can manage when I utter. It could be me who uses unhelpful thoughts, at any time. so no reason to be cruel to others for having unhelpful thoughts, not when they might be able to surpass them and actualize their own potentials.
