Spreading Seeds

seedThe Idea: Spreading Seeds

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – R Buckminster Fuller

In building a small and manageable community its members must engage the will rightly, and in doing so it must also engage the heart and mind.

The Seven Basic Human Needs and Rights For Any Civilized Society
Clean and Safe Shelter
Clean Food and Water
A Balanced Ethical Education
Health and Physical Care
Productive Purposeful Work
Free and Open Communication
and like all of Nature and Heaven’s Creations Rest

Goal: To build an economic self-sustainable community that becomes an open-source role model for other like minds citizens to copy, build upon, adjust to their community needs and share.

The community must be transparent in its financials, its values will embrace clean safe shelter, clean water and food, the creation of work with meaningful purpose guided by just and sound ethics, the development of common sense education and good health, and the promises of free and open communication to all citizens who participate.

We reach out and invite visionaries Neil Barofsky, William Black, Russell Brand, Howard Buffett, David Degraw, Dr. Michael Hudson, Max Keiser, Derrick Jensen, Kerry Anne Mendoza, Ronnie Moas, Ralph Nader, Larry Page, Ron Paul, Dylan Ratigan, and all other open and like minds to guide us financially in order to secure fertile land and help us develop a sound economy through micro-economic sustainable structures.

We will strive to bring forward an enlighten social consciousness incorporating the working environmentally sound models and modern thought.

We invite innovative speakers and practitioners who embrace both old world common sense practices while developing healthy innovative technologies that help us remain true to our self-sustaining goals while keeping them in balance with our community values.

The world is not wanting of ideas, but ideas are in need of focus and funding.

This idea is not hard, in fact it’s older than dirt.

Put aside ‘it takes a village,’ we need to start building the village.

The hardest step is going from zero to one.

Let’s start planting.

medical: traditional, Chinese, holistic
education of children: Steiner, Montessori, Classical, Community
education of adults: guest lecturers, arts, philosophy, academic and physical skills
computers and IT technology: maintain and secure an open and world wide internet
worker owned business management: dotting i’s crossing t’s, tours, visionary business expansion
business retail: co-op grocery & bakery, artists co-op, village bazaar
worker support: developing new skills and training unskilled labor to become skilled
grant writing and fund raising: invaluable
ethical media & communication; inviting guest speakers, educating the public, community outreach
government liaison: a representative voice in the old world
lawyering: to deal, confront and protect against the obsolete system

House of Cards – Season 3

hoc

Sorry, this is going to be a brief, but terrible review for House of Cards Season 3.
I never do TV reviews, but I was hoping, I don’t know, something… something better… something more…

First, I do like Kevin Spacey as an actor, and there are few who could play his cold-hearted, disconnected, pent-up, self-absorbed wife better then Robin Wright; of which I wonder if Cate Blanchett made a great study of for her role in Blue Jasmine.

I’ll sum it up. First two episodes were fine, last two were back on track, all the stuff in the middle was nothing, but filler which could have been either tossed into one, maybe two episodes, or rewritten completely to reflect the dark underbelly of what’s really going on in the world today. So yes, Clare, it was all a big fat lie. The whole Russian thing was stupid and borderline propaganda, no wait, it was propaganda. Does someone have a bone for Putin? Maybe someone can’t get past 1917? All the other foreign conflicts/appointment were ridiculous. Doug’s obsession/revenge was way too long. The Press Corp was basically stupid on the scale of a mockumentary, as was Frank’s book; which would have made a better TV series than the one they gave us. Seriously, know your audience no need to insult them. That said, if I missed anything else it’s only cause I’ve already forgotten. So why am I writing this review, because I feel tricked and manipulated, I expected to be in on the secrets, not one of its victims.

There’s so much ‘real’ already out there the writers could have picked it up like gum off a New York City Street. How interesting it could have been, but they gave us this cheese-wizzy version rather than the truth from Frank’s perspective – it could have been great! Instead the writers were either paid off or calling it in.

Side note: Author, Michael Dobbs, er… Baron Dobbs, is a British Conservative Politicians – SURPRISE!

Finally, the best line in Season 3: “I have God’s ear now.”
Well, I beg to differ.
Oh, and Spock died :(

 

Oh, and Lee Camp just reminded me of something else in HOC
Common Dreams: Real-Life Frank Underwoods: Netflix, ‘House of Cards’ and Third Way

Response to AmericaWerks:
“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.” – R Buckminster Fuller

Marinaleda, a Socialist Utopia in Spain

lightbulb
Title: In Search of Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo; a socialists utopia
I’d like to make a daily or bi-weekly Youtube/Vimeo video in search of Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo, find out what he did or is doing during this world wide financial crises. I want to get an in-depth view of the village, including; working in the fields, stores, factories and help build the homes. As a commoner, educator and citizen journalist I want to learn first hand how this all works cooperatively. Upon returning I want to then figure out how to create a similar community in the US. I have to raise funds to get myself there and then follow-up in the US to accomplish this legally. If you know the best way to raise these funds or wish to sponsor this project let me know.

Here are some materials about the man and this place, what’s different is I want to document my experiences actually doing the work and living in and with this community.
