I personally have taken a job as a lifeguard. The pay is good, the hours are good, and it is a job that gives incentive to staying fit and knowing how to give medical aid. Free or discounted lessons in all kinds of first aid (wilderness, lifeguarding courses, etc.) are always being offered to employees. If you work at a pool instead of beach, oftentimes you get free access to all the facilities. And, so long as you have a copy of your certification, you can get a job lifeguarding pretty much anywhere. This can be useful to those who move around a lot. I realise that none of this is specific to anarchism, but a fairly fulfilling job with lots of benefits that is not difficult to get seems like the kind of job anyone would want, even an anarchist.

I forget if I've posted in here before, but either some kind of artist, or a teacher.

Or, whatever you enjoy most, really.

Artist of some sort? Drug dealer is a good one, or gun runner.

Just do what you want (or need) to do, that's part of being an anarchist.
People shouldn't give other people shit about their jobs...unless it's extremely counter intuitive (police officer, military, etc)

Personally, I'm aiming for animation. 3D, maybe 2D...
Just because that's one of my passions

I wish I had a choice!

No. Not really. I don't have the choice to live a ''lavish lifestyle''. If someone is debating on whether to be rich or not to be rich then most likely they ARE rich, and have the means to live a ''humble life'' with the safety net there at all times. I myself don't have this choice. So I ask, what do YOU mean?

Well, you could work at an independent record label for example. That job pays pretty well.

I have a job that pays "pretty well". I don't care about that. My point was that this character coming on here asking what the best job for an anarchist should be obviously doesn't live in the real world where people take whatever work they can get.

Yeah, well a lot of people actually don't have jobs doing what they're passionate about. Myself, I just started an underground record label called Twisted Metal Records (named after the video game series Twisted Metal. It's in my uncle's house where I live and is more of a recording studio than a label since all I have is Pro Tools.

That's cool. Hope it works out. I play in a band and I suppose if I could make enough money to survive doing it, I would.

Animal Product Free Gumbo Ze Herbs Stands and The Replacement of Fast Food Sturctures With Small Dance Floors...

Imagine your self there in the Drive Thru as a DJ...

oh and there is definately more fun in no totalitarianism if you want there to be more of a party...

and before you loose yourself in all the pure sugar cane candy remember the *confusion* (compound) free Rapid Eye Technology to get you back into yourself with help needed under stress...

Not to mention the fact that after all that socializing with Gumbo Ze Herbs you will be manuvreing about a bit less courteously....and so you may need something like Tea and APC vinegar basis water beverages for fat dispersal and replacement.

It is good that you have already decided your goal towards career. Do whatever but be careful and always make right decisions. I'll be happy if you let me know where I can find startup jobs candidates.
