Hey y'all, I hope everything is going good and fine! I'm so happy to find a forum to find similar apolitical thinkers who also fancy punk music and anarchic lyrics! My story isn't very unique, but I am glad that this is the path I choose. After getting lost in the drug scene for around 2 years, I got a really bad heroin habit. One of my dealers at the time was a homeless punk rock kid who never seemed to grow up or sit down and sleep. He had so much energy. What he lacked in intelligence, he more than made up for in experience. He was an anarchist and, despite being heavily addicted, he lived independent of the capitalist system, regularly stealing and couch surfing and refusing to drive or getting an ID. I was so inspired. I hated the state, but I had no idea how to act against it other than to not buy into it. I lived off of scraps and started shooting up regularly. After an existential crisis and a drying up of funds, I realized I wasn't building a world I wanted to live in. I was standing by, waiting passively for the revolution. After this moment, I decided to chase the only things that made me want to stay alive: freedom, desire, passion. I hated the banality of the working class life and strived for more. I didn't want to perpetuate something I felt no inclination towards. I attempted to convert all my friends and started reading essays and buying books from Crimethinc's library to refine my anarchist jargon. I may have broken down and used a few times, eventually cleaning up for my girlfriend, but I stayed true remaining free and dependent on my friends. I got a job in a small business, morally paradoxical, but they pay me enough to survive, I steal from corporations, I do all my transactions through a credit union and I take pleasure in the fun things in life. Now I'm wondering what's next? Well, that's it for now. I hope to get to know some of you passionate fiends.
