I feel it, a need for a different kind of freedom, and it has nothing to do with money. It has everything to do with self-sufficiency, as a community. I would love to see the world as my community, self-sufficient, working in harmony and in a commune, but the reality I see is not the case. We have been divided with ill intent.
Never the less I feel this pulling inside me to be a part of something great, and beautiful. So I look for something smaller: a tribe, a commune, like-minded people who also feel this pull. Are there others? I can’t be the only one feeling this hunger. The desire to sever oneself from this cancer that operates out of our reach yet has unrestricted access to the fruits of our labors.
Are you out there? Can we meet? Are you willing to combine resources, create a refuge, where our fruits are enjoyed by our efforts, and not sapped away from those that would strip us bare? Is it not interesting that tribal life, around the world, was eradicated no matter its form? Was it because that way of life could not be divided, isolated, and harvested? Were those circles too close-knit for the education devices that operate in our lives currently?
I personally just want to be apart of a citizenry that relies upon the shoulders of the ones that stand next to them: a commune. Perhaps one day that commune could be embraced on a global scale; even if that were the case, it would be a world of tribes, small circles, interlocked, with a common interest to thrive.
In the dark corners of our minds, there is a voice that says you will never have peace. I stand defiant, ready to take the first steps away from that lie. If we all were self-sufficient, within our small circles, we would not need this big unwieldy apparatus we call government. Our government could be a small circle of elders that once a year gathered with other circles of elders to talk about larger issues. Circles within circles.
We can have peace, but we must first want to truly live within a world that can provide for everyone. This peaceful planet has no place for the gluttonous; whatever the form the wealth takes. There is a reason the meek shall inherit the earth. There is enough to go around, there is enough land, enough food, enough skill, enough love…
The empire that operates before us, has grown on secrets, divisions, hates, and fears. I am tired of that way, it does not serve us. If we banded together and lived on small communes like the one I discovered in Virginia we could rediscover self-sufficiency. We would know that we only needed each other, and not this mythical beast we call government, which has done nothing but steal our self-sufficiency.
This pyramid of reliance, from local to state, state to federal, has created the opposite of what our forefathers have dreamed of. The dream of bottom-up representation has been co-opted, which on its own is not damning, but when you incorporate that with the governments’ vehement desire to keep the people’s very survival in its hands, you have a recipe for disaster of untold proportions.
Maybe it’s my survival instincts kicking in. Is it too late? Can we still band together despite the declaration of war this government has brought down upon its own people?
Our towns and cities would starve if the trucks stopped bringing the food. Should people be so far divided from their source of food? Convenience and safety have blinded us; We have given away the knowledge to take care of ourselves. I say its time to take that knowledge back. Industrial farming is raping the earth of the minerals needed to feed the food we would grow. We must take back the land used for this purpose, redistribute it into manageable communes; growing and feeding locally.
If we did this, you would all see the monster we have created; it would snarl and attack, but we are this monsters lifeblood and the will of the people cannot be thwarted for long. You might be tempted to say that we have outgrown the need for such communities, but I assure you nature is going to bring this current way of life to a screeching halt, despite what the pundits claim, it has very little to do with pollution, and everything to do with cosmic cycles.
Our world is about to undergo drastic changes, due to our star. If we don’t do a 180 from the way we do things now, millions of us, the ones that do survive the initial catastrophe cycle will starve to death. This cycle is being covered by a group of citizen scientists, namely the Suspicious Observers. Check out the playlist that covers this topic in great detail here.
There are millions of reasons to do this, you have just been blinded to them. Wake up and smell the disaster brewing. I want to do this for the freedom it would engender, but there are other, very serious reasons why we as a people should change.
