I just finished reading this piece and I think that they are right. Not only do we as solarpunks and lunarpunks need to think about a utopian future... We need to start accepting that what we think is utopian may be drastically different in a few years. What does utopia look like if you've lost your home? What does it look like if your entire community becomes homeless due to disaster? What kind of services would need? What types of mutual aid could be set up? How does our perception of utopia change when we finally accept that we will never attain the ideal due to rampant climate change? How do we change our actions today and tomorrow for what is to come?

To work for the joy of changing the world, and not out of the heavy burden of obligation to those i love and depend on.

Private ownership of capital imposes resource scarcity, forcing people to turn a profit for political and economic empires. The apparent necessity of "labor" is a social construct arising from the same system responsible for poverty and climate change.
