I'm not reading all of the thread to see if someone else said this. What people think of when they say concentration camp in regards to the Nazis were actually the death camps. These came after the concentration camps. The concentration camps came first. A concentration camp is a camp where a group of people are kept without trial for being a member of a specific class. In the case of what is occurring now, the class is "asylum seeker."

Also, don't tempt fate with shit like "Why would you take your children into such a volatile situation?" Pray you never have to answer that question yourself.

I had an interview with the CFO of the company who just bought mine. I think that was a job interview. I think I bombed because I was a nervous mess and because I thought he was going to ask about systems integration and not ask about me, specifically. I tried to talk about all of my coworkers and got a weird "well, we may not be taking everyone."

I start an elimination diet next week. I went to a health clinic to try and figure out what is wrong with me (they fixed me last time it turned out that I had H. Pylori and a gluten problem). I finally feel hope. I am really excited to start the elimination diet even though I know it'll be rough just because I'm sick of being sick.

Also, I'm going camping this weekend, taking a long weekend for my birthday. As I am stewing about bombing this interview, I'm worried it's all I'll be able to think about. I'm bringing some anarchist books to read to try to think of something else.

our parents are "responsible" to give you a good "starter pack" imo. If they didn't give you land, the fault is on them.

So what is my recourse?

Secondly, you can still forage plants/fish/hunt on public & private land (If you're invited), but I won't go into the details .

Not without paying. And that's my point. All land is fucking owned by someone. You must pay someone. Therefore, you must make a wage.

Yes, It's subpar compared to the hunter/gatherer days, but what r you expecting

To not have to pay for shit that grows free because someone decided they fucking owned it.

We're growing as a species...

You say growing, I say failing. Toh-may-to, Toh-mah-to.

Without government you could own all the "public" land, that the government prevents you from owning, so yea this will be a lot different.

You're extrapolating and making extra arguments to my initial question of how can you eat and have somewhere to live without a wage under a system that still has wages.

You didn't inherit anything from your parents ? No land, nothing ?

Just bad coping mechanisms.

Here are some ways to earn money without wage labor :

I didn't actually ask for a list of alternative ways to sell my labor. I asked how you eat and live without selling your labor. Clearly, you do sell your labor. My broader point was that prior to capitalism, food grew wild. One could go forage plants and fish and hunt for food. However, now you must pay someone to be allowed to eat. So you must earn a wage. You have no way out of earning a wage. Under voluntaryism, I don't see this as being any different. All of the things you mentioned require one to labor in ways that are not just picking an apple off of a tree. Therefore, not voluntary. Compulsary.

I won't upvote junk but I will say that I did enjoy the community responses to the thread on voluntaryism (an-cap). They were informative and interesting. And I have a hard time reading large texts so sometimes seeing debates is the best way for me to take in information. I know a lot of the people who are better versed in theory than I find it annoying but what I read last night was quite good.

Every time you mention donations, I try to give you a few bucks but both the site and paypal bitch about it. Then I forget to complain to you about it and the cycle repeats. Let me know if you get something up. I wanna help with costs a bit.

So, just gonna say waking up with an erection every morning is 100% normal and is a sign of a well-functioning heart. If you stop waking up with them, get your heart checked. :)

But I understand the embarrassment. I've been there. <3

I used to struggle with an unbearably high libido. I, too, masturbated in bathrooms because I just needed relief. It turned out to be side effects of medication I was on and once I got off of meds, my libido returned to a normal monthly cycle. I still have a few days a month that I have sex on the brain, but I also have whole weeks where I get to have my brain to my damn self for thinking about real thoughts. You may want to look to see if there is a physiological cause. I understand how debilitating this can be. hugs There were nights where my self-talk about myself was less than kind because of the high libido.
