Like it sounds rediculous but maybe avoiding all the cliches that cause bad dreams, like don't eat a big meal before bed, drink lots of water throughout a day, take some light anti-inflammatorys don't eat cheese, or chocolate right before bed, don't go on your phone, watch movies or do anything highly stimulating right before bed, try and make your sleep cycle more consistent, eat more consistent meals, get a general health checkup, eat yogurt and take care of your gut/ flora. Make sure you sleep in a way that limbs don't fall asleep and you are an ok temperature, maybe try taking a shower before bed or do other things that can relax you before bed. Maybe a small dose of Ativan/lorazepam, there's also like signs of some things like mushrooms and LSD having antidepressive effects, but ofc like most things they aren't for everyone

Sometimes I feel like anxiety can cause nightmares, it's easy to forget that you have anxiety if it's just a baseline amount of anxiety, like if you are feeling unwell or under the weather as well, I find even if I think I'm doing ok I can end up having messed up dreams probably just from residual stress, or like maybe chronic pain affects dreams. As well as if I've had a particular disrupted sleep cycle. I don't know what's available to you as far as the medical system where you live, or if you have any chronic pain issues etc, but sometimes I feel like it's a lot of little things adding up and weighing on my subconscious that makes my dreams fucked up.

Uh you need to get over your strong biases and limited perception of what anti-capitalists look like. And I have to say although yes browsing through darkweb, proxies, and using encryption are all generally good practice (with some caveats) there is something fantastic about simple low overhead websites that just serve text without any filler, website like that can be self hosted without relying on as much of the corporate infrastructure. Anyways pretty much all the comments you've left on this site are needlessly hostile.

Speaking of consistency, I'm thinking of chicken nuggets: the most Alienated food

Completely reformed re textured, re coloured, re flavoured,

bland yet Almost universally apealing.

Eating them makes you feel like you have control over your life,

You don't think of a chicken.

It's a perfect example of the black box of industrialized food.

It almost transcends class by being ubiquitous

It offers escape like all the best commodities do. A bite of capitalist utopia.

Now would you like honey mustard or sweet and sour sauce with that?

I've had moments where I've changed my cooking to mostly vegan, I just find that meat is so available in my culture, I think knowing that a food is consistently available increases my habitually eating it, I'm admittedly a pretty habitual eater, there's a pizza place near my work and I eat there almost every day, it's ironic since I've had bouts where I haven't eaten cheese, bread, or meat but now I eat shitty pizza from the same place again and again, they have only three types of pizza available by the slice and I usually grab the meat pizza because they just have a lot more calories, if they had good slices available with a good selection of vegetables I'd probably go for that... Why did I return to eating meat? I don't doubt there was probably some perception of class dynamics involved subliminally. The idea of meat and potatoes, after a day of work and a fourty ounce of old English split with my roommates had a certain romanticism to me at the time, the cheap sausages I bought were always the most consistent part of my day unlike the vegetables I could afford which were always bundles of vegetables that were already going bad. I think there's a demand for consistency in food especially from people who are experiencing a lot of chaos in their lives, you see it in children who are picky eaters, growing up is a chaotic time and most children have no control over their lives, we hold onto ideas of control that are related to the foods we eat. I think that meat is so culturally entrenched that it won't change any time soon, especially with the fast food industry.
