I also feel utopian anarchists have this weird like obsession with cultural Erasure. Typically white anarchists just don't seem to be capable of imagining multiple Utopias born from different cultural contexts. The values of these Utopias are either too vague as to be of any use, or so specific that it's clearly eurocentric. And that doesn't sit right with me.

The issue I have with Utopia is that it quickly becomes something thats held in higher regard than the community that's supposed to live in it. Because Utopia isn't just having a set of ideals you'd like to have prominent in a society, it's also how those ideals play off and into each other. I feel that what quickly happens is that these ideals in various extremes end up contradicting each other and in doing so the only "goal" of that society is to uphold Utopia at the expense of these ideals.

Depending on which era you're talking about Egypt actually didn't have a military for the longest time. It was only after repeatedly being invaded did they develop warfare tactics. Starting (I believe, it's been a hot second) with the Assyrians. So maybe you should update your knowledge of history or literally anything else, because as it stands I wouldn't trust you to know shit about shit you supposedly love.

So don't quote me on this it's been a hot second since I've studied ecology and even then I only took those courses because they were required. But the gist of it is that while one person siphoning rainwater probably won't do anything when you have large communities doing it it adversely affect local ecology by causing essentially artificial droughts, which causes Flora and fauna die-off.
