I’ve been working towards an idea, for about 20 years now, that I really think could help make a positive change in the world. I’ve also been working on a website that could help launch this idea into action. It’s a website where we the people could come together to create our own online communities to aid us in creating our own real-life communities within or nearby our own cities. These communities would not be completely isolated or segregated from the current system. They would merely serve as a more communal alternative that would allow many to voluntarily live as mankind was intended, where we work together to grow most of our own foods, make most of our own products, and provide most of our own services as much as possible, instead of focusing on profiting off the naive, the desperate, the imprisoned, the sick, and the dying. It would help citizens band together all over the world to influence their own local governments, to pool their own resources, to collectively start their own co-op businesses, to set up their own insurance systems, to provide their own healthcare and legal services, to form their own schools and community shopping centers, and so on. These local communities would hopefully rise up in every city of every nation to push back all the political and corporate corruption and greed that is spreading like a cancer and which is destroying our world.
Right now, people are over worked, over stressed, and under paid, due to capitalistic greed. There are several examples throughout our history where mankind worked together more harmoniously and where mankind was not harmfully stretched to the limits. Now is the time for all those who wear good hearts to come together to aid one another in creating a better way of life for all those who seek it and want it. It has become my life’s purpose to try and make this happen. Although we do need change to come from the top down, change must primarily take place from the ground up. I’m confident it will.
You may also read my WordPress essay titled, “The Ideal Society,” under my Political Views tab, to get a stronger sense of the idea.
This idea was originally posted on Global Democracy, under “Society.” If you like this idea, please give it a good rating and share it with others. Thanks!
