build stuff, repair stuff, destroy stuff, clean stuff/places, do gardening, meet with marginalized and/or handicapped people, share, teach and improve your skills and knowledge, help organizing last wishes of the dying, reflect, sleep, do what makes you sad, do what is a joy for you, become angry, become scared. act out your emotions. find or maintain your passion, analyze your possessions: how do they (not) help sustain yourself, help your friends, help strangers, participate at local antifa, union, library, community kitchen.

As you mentioned you need to sustain yourself, all of this above is work on community and oneself. It may be paid, or offer shelter but not necessarily. A "classic" job, yet kind of ethical (which is subjective) can be as a undertaker, farmer or (kindergarten) teacher. Do you know this thread?

Hope you find something to go for, and I'm curious what will come. Feel free to keep us/me updated :)

When you want to go dumpster diving or want to steal/buy food you can look up e.g. that are being sold in your area, with glass packaging, have only vegan ingredients, are organic or whatever. It can be a time saver and helps you to do research if there a better alternatives for the product you currently consume but you were not aware of until then.

Let them out of prison, have a sympathetic ear, protect their victims and themselves, encourage to talk about it in a safe way, try to find the real reason for the action and close that gap within the offender and/or the society. Uphold the good in human beings, without ignoring the evil we all have in us. Establish and maintain a collective base where feelings and desires can be expressed without having to fear judgement or punishment. At best, the roots of a action can grow into something positive.

Because no state will exist, the small society I would want to live in decides consensually what action is a real crime (wrong action for a happy life inside the small society). Everyone with a veto will no longer be part of it.

(Yeah, it's not just that and everything will be fine. It's just a abstract and quick answer.)

  • Do postings in the public. Visit other neighborhoods, russian communities as a primary source.

  • Maybe you get lucky and can talk to a contemporary witness, their friends or relatives or they contact you and can provide old stories, diaries, photos.

  • Consult a trusted librarian for already published works, look for private migrant associations - maybe they have archives or can impart or even put you in contact with somebody. Write to different public institutions worldwide like university faculties and ask for recommendations, for comparison write also to communist parties.

  • Debunk propaganda by talking with others about your newest knowledge and be aware, that probably everything's ever written bears the authors hallmarks of some political view and interpretation.
