You ever think about how the revolution is your retirement plan?
@SuzanEraslan About 3-4 times a week, yeah.
@erosdiscordia Right? Like every time I see something that’s like “Start investing now!” I just laugh and laugh and then try not to weep.
I first realized it at about 15, when I read about social security, looked at the size of the Boomer generation, looked at the size of Gen X, and did some basic math.
Eat the rich.
@SuzanEraslan yes. I love how my parents (and boomers in general) think this is a joke. Like,,, no??? How the fuck else am I going to live comfortably into old age if we don’t overthrow the government kill landlords and abolish bosses????
@JohnBrownJr That’s right, you’re NOT!
@SuzanEraslan I don’t think I’ve funded Up Against the Wall enough, I should adjust my withholding
@zigg You know, this was not what I was getting at, but the idea did pop into my head as I tooted it... we need to be INVESTING in the revolution as if it were our retirement plan.
@SuzanEraslan I thought that as I typed it—“hey, this joke has layers…”
• learning sustainable farming practices
• teaching yourself how to synthesize important medicines
• learning first aid
• learning various fighting and defense practices
• building up networks of mutual aid so that when things go pear shape, you are taken care of and can take care of others
• some other things I shouldn’t say publicly, but you can infer 😈
@SuzanEraslan literally had this conversation last night
I will be pretty fucking amused if we have a revolution that still gives a fuck about my 401k balance
@SuzanEraslan Every. Damn. Day.
@SuzanEraslan Lost my job last year right around the time all of the N/S Korea stuff was going down. Didn't feel a pressing urge to really find a new job if that dumbass in the White House was going to get us all killed in a fiery blaze...
Anticapitalist Mastodon instance. Party means fun, not political party. But we're still political.
