If there's one thing that I have learnt over the past few years on this journey of truth it is that sometimes there are battles, arguments and conflicts that you simply cannot win. Whether the person you're disagreeing with is ignorant of the evidence, or whether they are just simply not capable of understanding the truth, you have all I am sure at some point, just walked away, thinking to yourself (you can't save em' all)
It is that point where I am right now with my entire life. Sadly it seems as though despite all the time more evidence being uncovered to expose and highlight so many of the fucked up things that are happening in the world, the more and more the majority dig their heads into the sand, watch x-factor and generally enjoy their enslavement. There was a time not too long ago, as close as this summer where I really thought we were making progress, the numbers of 'awake' people I was seeing posting on social media sites and commenting on the article of various alternative news web pages was very encouraging...
Then we had the bullshit in Paris, and wow did the world conform. Boy was I disappointed in some people I thought really understood but obviously not. That mockery of a false flag taught me two things about what is happening right now and neither of them involve ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service, or $ $) So number one was just how quickly and loosely people can abandon the truth, a few fireworks and shots fired and the world suddenly paints it'self red, white and blue. Just imagine for one second if you could waking up as a Syrian citizen, logging into Facebook sometime after the Paris hoax and seeing the vast majority of the your news feed, friends list, world is now suddenly supporting and praising a country that is dropping bombs all over yours? I bet you'd feel real good right? Like the whole world was behind you? Oh no wait I mean the whole world was against you.
And number two was these people are getting desperate, or they realise you're as stupid as stupid gets and it doesn't matter how obvious a hoax it is or how many mistakes get highlighted, all you care about is shopping for Xmas and watching the shit that's on TV. I've never before seen a "terror attack" so quickly ripped apart by the people who saw it for what it was, it's like they don't even need to make any effort any more...
So this gets to me to where I am right now, sitting here writing, deleting and then re-writing my letter to HM REVENUE to tell them that this year I am with-holding my self employment taxes because I strongly oppose the illegal wars that we are participating in and because I am disgusted at the way the country is run by bankers for bankers, without a single concern for the welfare of the people.
They sound like reasonable justifiable reasons for withholding funds, right? In correspondence with article 61 of the Magna Carta 1215, so why does it still feel so difficult to write and why do I know it will be met with resistance and conflict even though you would have to have no empathy to not understand why I am doing and saying what I am. How could you read my reasons for not wishing to contribute to this war chest, and then still make a demand? What sort of fucked-up human being are you? What sort of slave loving, merciless parasite have you become?
My point is opposing bombing innocent people, opposing the destruction of another country and opposing the system that we are enslaved within should not be hard, it should be the most natural feeling in the world that it almost disgusts me that I must have to justify my fucking viewpoint to people time after time, as if giving a shit about other people is abnormal. I am not anti-social, I am not an activist, I am not a hippy nor am I conspiracy theorist... I am just a human being who thinks that the torture, maiming and death of any other earthling on this planet is wrong and could have and should have been avoided. It doesn't matter how you try and wrap it up for me, whether we are doing it to "end terror" or whatever bullshit theory you wanna run with, there is no way you will ever sit me down and justify to me why we can live with killing other people every day.
When you think about it so simply like this, you really have to have something wrong with you to stay on their side.... But again the only people who will read this will already understand and those of you who didn't closed the page 4 paragraphs up.
I don't want to fight any more. I feel I have moved on from fighting and realised it is futile, I have again evolved... I just want to escape. Move out of the system. If I don't depend on it how can it control me? Why fight, why suffer, why not just leave.
so what's the alternative?
So to go into this image with a bit more detail, as the description at the top of the image already points out, this could occur very easily and cheaply at the start, all you really need is somewhere to begin. A piece of land ideally, but you don't need to necessarily own any.
Once land has been found and acquired the actual process of building a 'community' is in itself very simple, all you need are a few other like minded people and all decide to settle in one place together. Even if that was in mud huts and tents, you would still be a community and even in mud huts and tents, surrounded by like minded people with no rules and regulations set for you all by outsiders, only what you decide to agree to as a group, proper democracy... and already it sounds miles better than this cesspit of a existence most of us have now.
Above I have decided to find an area close to a water source (in this case a river)although the plan would be to collect and distil rain water, I think having a renewable source nearby is important for all sorts of reasons. And it could also be used as a means of travelling if needed.
Also in the image I have surrounded the place by trees, this is not essential the only reason I even thought about doing it this way for seclusion. The reason I think seclusion may become an important factor is because I don't think that people will tolerate this shit forever, they will rebel eventually. And when they do, or say the banks all crash and there's no money.. The people WILL riot, and if you've got some safe-haven community that works and is thriving, you will become a target. I hope it would never come to that, but I could never rule it out. Being surrounded by trees however would have many other benefits beside seclusion, anything from rain cover to fire wood. Also I figured if it was on farmland or forestry land, chances are the soil would already be good for growth.
So the next step from tents etc would be to start constructing more permanent dwellings. As shown in the example above, I personally think it would make a lot of sense to have a main hall or diner with kitchen where you could all eat and prepare your meals as a group, obviously this isn't something you'd have to do, it would just make the most sense. Cooking meals for a group and sharing duties saves wasting food and eases the burden on those growing and collecting and preparing food. It would also give you at least once a day that you would all be together to discuss your plans and any decisions to be made.
With there being individual family dwellings also, there would still be the option of privacy and alone space.
Before we start looking at how it could be made etc, I want to briefly reiterate the amount of timber and building materials that we waste just in the United Kingdom alone. Absolutely vast amounts of perfectly good usable materials are dumped every year, lots of these could be salvaged, rescued and recycled.
The idea of breaking away from the system is to lose the things that control you within it.
Money is a huge factor in most peoples lives and I truly believe that almost all of these "communities" could be set up and gradually built up into permanent living facilities using little to no money, instead using second hand materials and the skills of those people involved. Next time you're walking down a housed street or driving through an industrial estate just take a second to notice all the things that we dump. And begin to think about how they could have been used elsewhere. It's mind boggling.
Everything from timber to bricks, tiles, carpet, fixtures and fittings, plastic and glass. That's without even considering the things like cardboard egg cartons for insulation or jars for storage. The options are almost limitless and it's all available for free. And not only that you are benefiting the planet when you are re-using these items.
Below are some example images of the the ridiculous amounts of waste which could easily be re-used. Click to enlarge.
how could it work?
- Where will we live
- What will we eat and drink
- How will it be powered
- How it would be run
- How we could earn a living if we wanted/needed.
As previously mentioned in the very beginning as long as you didn't start in the winter months, you could easilly start off with tents, caravans, marquees, gazebos anything like that. All it would be about initially is getting to know one another, pooling resources and skills and creating your plan. This way if your group has too many disputes or cannot come to an agreement you've lost nothing. Only if you are happy with how things have worked out should you begin to gather in materials to starting building permanent fixtures.
Whilst researching this topic I came across THIS website, which shared a pretty good idea, I liked it all, except for the fact that it cost initially, however if salvaged materials could solve that money issue, and the general plan could be kept then this would still be a good idea.
The following section was taken from http://www.ericwichman.com/
The Off The Grid Cabin would include:
The beauty of a system like this is:
- Shelter: 320 square foot Living Space (40′ Shipping Container) Including a kitchen, bathroom, shower, stove, washer/dryer, couch bed,
- Water Source: Atmospheric water generator.
- Power: (Electricity provided by Solar and Wind combo system) The cabin would be wired for both AC and DC so you could run straight off the solar and wind, and or the battery system.
- Plumbing & Septic: Mounted under the home just like an RV
- Heating & Cooling: Propane stove, diesel, and/or low voltage DC heater. (small space is easier to heat) OR a passive solar collector which would heat both the water and the cabin. Radiant heating throughout the entire container.
- Food: The container cabin come with the materials to build a small hydropnic greenhouse capable of producing enough food for a family of 4.
- Optional: 1 Years supply of MRE survival food.
- Lighting – LED (Light Emitting Diodes) and CFL (Compact Flourescent Lamps). One is AC one is DC.
- First and foremost it’s 100% self sufficient. With minor modifications it could be placed almost anywhere in the world and provides shelter, water, electricity, and sanitation all in one easy to install kit. It would come with everything you need to survive and thrive almost anywhere.
- Second, it’s portable and can be moved with very little work and quite inexpensively compared to moving a larger house.
- Third, it’s expandable and upgradable. With the addition of another shipping container the square footage is doubled. Each container added creates another 320 square foot of floor space. Considering 40′ shipping containers sell at retail for about $2500-$3000 each, it doesn’t take much money to double triple and even quadruple your living space.
Using a basic plan and just timber a log cabin can be erected from floor to water tight in less than 2 days, on you own. So imagine what a whole group of people could achieve working together.
The reason I like the idea of using wood and keep harping on about it, especially reclaimed and salvaged wood is because it doesn't cost any money, it can easily be repaired or replaced, and it has a positive effect on the planet. I would much rather use all the wood that is sat in skips and landfills first than have to cut down any more trees!
Below are some images of log cabins been built by hand, in little time. Click to enlarge.
This is the most important aspect to any life. So food and water are a must, where will they come from? There must be a clean and potable water source to supply everyone with enough water for drinking, cooking and sanitation. So without a regular rainfall there must be a well, stream, river, lake, pond or spring large enough to support the people of your community plus the ability to provide for others who may wish to join you. Rain water would be collected and distilled from all available rooftops once permanent structures were in place, but there must be something else in the meantime, bottled water is not an adequate enough resource, only a back up.
Food can be produced in both a common community garden which could be a large plot of land dedicated to growing food, raising livestock, and perhaps even fish if you are that way inclined.
I think also that each cabin/house/dwelling whatever should have its own vegetable/herb garden at least, as well as a communal one, this well help not only with supply issues but also with raising young children and teaching them the aspects of growth and sustainability.
I would also suggest initially starting your community off with stockpile assignments. This way before you even begin doing anything, your community can start collecting dried foods, tinned goods, tools, blankets batteries, etc, the things you will find it difficult to buy once you have formed your community. If each person or few people each has a responsibility then it will help spread the workload, the cost and increase your overall stockpile.
I will cover this a bit more further down but there is also the option of earning some money to buy some food if the need arose.
Images below show various self sufficient food gardens and below those images of "preppers" or the stockpiling of goods just in case, exactly what you and the rest of your community should begin doing. Even if one person collects one thing and keeps collecting it until you're ready to go. Click to enlarge
It's not as difficult as you'd think really, there are lots of ways nowadays to be self sufficient using solar or wind power. There are many people just in my street who've got solar panels on their roof. This would be your first proper expense as a community and this is where your pooled funds will come into play. Solar panels are a great power source, but they don't come too cheap.. Wind power on the other hand isn't so difficult to rig up yourself.
However I must stress that this would only be the power the essentials so to speak, forget things like your x box or your hair dryer, if you'd even consider taking things like that this isn't for you.
Having solar panels on each cabin roofs as well as all community buildings and two large wind turbine towers would be enough to power a small community as long as you didn't take the piss.
When it comes to heating, whilst looking into it for my own home I really fell in love with the log burner idea, especially using the flu to go around your house making the maximum out of the heat before it leaves via the chimney. It's also not too difficult any more to attach a water system to this log burner which would in turn provide hot water as long as the burner was still hot.
There are also things like propane heaters and cookers, as well as diesel generators and battery packs which would all serve the same purposes, but they would obviously need a source of money to keep replacing or charging.
However I do think also a good septic system is vital. each cabin could have it’s own system, it could be self contained, or there could be a central common bathroom shower area which empties into a large community septic system. Or it could be a combination of all the above. Whatever works and keeps things clean and sanitary.
Images below show solar panels, and wind turbines. And also how to heat water in various ways using a log burner. Click to enlarge.
I don't wan't that title to mislead anyone, I don't mean 'run' as if there's a master we must abide, but instead how things should operate.
Everyone brings with them unique skills and knowledge they can use to contribute to the community as whole. Everyone has valuable information and the ability to teach others and share with them the knowledge needed for the community to grow and expand. It’s not all about the money, or status or looks or anything like that as well it should never be. We’re talking about community and equality here. Where everyone is treated equally. Everyone within the community is on the same level as everyone else. There may be more dominant voices but nobody has any more right than you do. That is the sole point in the community. To work and act as one.
How would a community handle disputes or unrest?
I don't think there is any clear cut answer to this because of the great range of instances which could arise. However I do think it would be a wise idea to have some sort of plan already in place should the need arise, whether it be a council or just a set of basic fair rules that all are agreed upon with consequences which could involve being evicted from the community, or something there like.
All in all I think it comes down to everyone’s voice being heard equally and everyone have an equal vote. In the event of a tie vote, people vote a temporary leader for the deciding vote on each issue. Simple really. Though one could argue this aspect of democracy until the end of time.
Disputes and disagreements will happen. It’s inevitable. But if there’s a basis for handling them set up ahead of time, it will go a long way toward keeping the peace of the community.
It should all be done peacefully and equally if voices are raised and someone is suffering you're getting it wrong. Very wrong and you have become the system which you are trying to escape from.
Whichever way you decide to go, you may have to adapt and customise how you do things depending on the size and age range of your community.
The fact besides daily duties to your own home and family welfare and whatever your assigned duty may be within your community, the rest of your time should be your own, in freedom to do as you please. That is the entire point.
How we could earn a living if we wanted/needed?
Lets start off with the basics, if you are growing/rearing food, then instantly once you have enough for yourselves anything else can be sold on, same with being surrounded by trees, you can sell logs, build and sell furniture and other items, these are just the things you could do from your surroundings.
Then if you factored in that some people would/could get jobs outside of your home if needed, it all depends on how much you were still money based. Ideally you wouldn't need to work at all.
It wouldn't matter in any way in which you brought funds into the community as long as after the expenses were paid the profits were shared equally within the community or kept within a 'kitty' that was still divided and spent on the community as a whole. this all again would tie in with the strength of your relationships. Nobody should have any more rights, any more food, any more money any more any thing than anyone other your community is failing. Equality is the foundation.
I have tried to cover as much of the basics as I can without too much input from anyone else. So this is the part where I need to hear from you, I don't care if you tear this whole article to shreds, as long as you provide me with your reasons for doing so, and if they're valid ideally your own alternative.
This is not my idea, this is our idea. It's just that right now 'our' consists of only me.
I wanna hear from anyone who's interesting in anything like this, or even if you're already part of something similar, I want to know about it. I wouldn't want to get involved in anything without serious planning first, this is still just an 'idea' a concept, a passing thought, without help, lots of it.
This could be done, if people wanted it to be done. Unless you're all happy to carry on fighting forever?
