You want to be a witch, to be part of a counter-culture, go to the OG cultural revolutionaries. Consider the following.
Two ideas from Abbie Hoffman in the introduction to Steal This Book:
1. [C]orporate feudalism as the only robbery worthy of being called “crime,” for it is committed against the people as a whole. Whether the ways [this book] describes to rip-off shit are legal or illegal is irrelevant. The dictionary of law is written by the bosses of order. Our moral dictionary says no heisting from each other. To steal from a brother or sister is evil. To not steal from the institutions that are the pillars of the Pig Empire is equally immoral.
2. Until we understand the nature of institutional violence and how it manipulates values and mores to maintain the power of the few, we will forever be imprisoned in the caves of ignorance. When we conclude that bank robbers rather than bankers should be the trustees of the universities, then we begin to think clearly. When we see the Army Mathematics Research and Development Center and the Bank of Amerika as cesspools of violence, filling the minds of our young with hatred, turning one against another, then we begin to think revolutionary.
And one from Jonathan Back in Spirits Walk with Me:
In everyday life Gerry liked to adopt the concept of being a ‘person-state’, who decided what was or wasn’t appropriate for the sole citizen of this nation – himself. In cases where he was tempted to commit what according to the laws of the United Kingdom would be classed as a crime, the act was seen instead by Gerry as a disagreement between two states.
Pay back what you owe, but also value your own life path and the need to develop. Do not enslave yourself because of money.
To attempt to pay back student loans in a way that wrecks your life—to even alter the course of your life to accommodate the post-industrial capitalist power structures that have commodified learning and health care, which should be fundamental human rights—is INHERENTLY IMMORAL. We are complicit in our own victimization every time we get depressed about money.
Ancillary observation: we must be clear with ourselves that life choices (where, how, by what means, and fundamentally speaking, what we do every day) cannot depend on psychological social pressure exerted by inherently corrupt corporate power structures.
Survive: say no to the military-industrial corporate egregores and be who you want to be. Live the way you want to live. And go under their radar (because they are vicious and will try to ruin and destroy you if you appear to be a threat).
Fight: resist the best way possible, which is to spread tolerance, learning, and critical thinking.
SPREAD YOUR MAGIC. MAKE NO ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT ANYONE UNTIL YOU GET TO KNOW THEM. BUT EDUCATE, ENCHANT, AND BRING ABOUT A REVOLUTION THAT MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER INSTEAD OF TEARING IT ALL DOWN.
You are part of a community. You are a community. Legislate your own well-being.
