* UPDATE 16/03/11:
Fururistic plans are in the creation.. soon dreams to reality.
I am currently having active meetings with others who are seriously interested in this project and coming up with a plan, and Soon leading to a fundraising website.
Will update soon.
Has anybody thought of everyone pitching in for a piece of land?
A piece of land for us to each, call our own,
a piece of land for us all to live, and work on,
a piece of land where we found change, even a new society?
I mean with 4000 members on here lets think about it:
A dollar from everyone; obviously $4000
But even $40 from everyone (4000monkeys)
, each month? Were looking at $160,000.
Maybe not EVERY member is that active into 811.
Lets say even 1000 of us wanted such a project.
1000 x $50 = $50,000
Thats still awesome.
So let's look even further into this.
$40 donation every month into a pot to buy some land... in the tropics?
I would personally dedicate my time to work for FREE just to organize
and work on crops there.
Fast forward one year. 12 months.
12 x $160,000 = $1,920,000
Okay.. so maybe a million to the land.
Wait another year and make one massive
paradise for all?
Whos to say we couldn't start our own paradise..
living strictly off the land, and anything else needed
to be bought from our currency of a lucious crop.
I have a dream. A dream that crops would so lucious and large in volume there would
be enough to feed a society.
Heck we could have our own outdoor swimming pool,
A gym inspired by DR.G's awesome bodyweight and monkey bar exercises,
even an indoor one with free weights... everything
To make such a society is not a far glance, it's much closer than we know
I made this discussion for you to point out flaws or rejoice in such an idea.. or just
to think im crazy.
Either way I will attempt to make paradise on earth for myself,
waking up every morning to my job of providing and cultivating food
for myself and other's, through permaculture and every other way to
create sustainability on earth :)
For members interested in planning and coming on board:
we would have to purchase a huge amount of land to feed and house 1000 people comfortably in the paradise you are describing, but i absolutely agree that buying land is the smartest thing to do if you're going to be 811. and i am SO behind this idea.
tell me where the pot is and i'll throw in my share every month.
i know madelyn.....i cant think of anything else right now...did you check what just John McCabe posted?
I am wondering if there were ppl like us before us who wished the same thing?
REVOLUTION is about to come....Hell Yeah...something worth fighting for.
