Scottish Independence


.
.
Could Scotland’s Independence Be The New Role Model?

More to the point, will Scotland’s Independence give Americans some big ideas?

Scotland 300+ years tied to the Union Jack.
US 200+ years free of Great Briton.

Scotland wants out of the wars.
US wants endless wars.

Scotland wants nukes out of their country.
US wants to build and sell more WMD.

Scotland wants to share in the common wealth of her nation’s natural resources.
US wants to sell more of her natural recourses to private corporations.

Scotland wants to become a leader in eco-friendly energy.
US wants to frack and pipe oilsand down the middle of their bread basket.

Scotland will hold banks accountable.
US not only lets the banks get away with crookery they pay them $85 Billion a month to stay dishonest.

help me add more in the comment…

Is it time for the American People to look closely at the 10th Amendment and think about a smaller more manageable, more honest, more ‘We The People’ type of governments?

When John Adams first said, “My country” he was talking about the country of Massachusetts.

Thomas Jefferson said, “If any State in the Union will declare that it prefers separation with the first alternative, to a continuance in union without it, I have no hesitation in saying, ‘let us separate’. I would rather the States should withdraw, which are for unlimited commerce and war, and confederate with those alone which are for peace and agriculture.”

Is it time for us to separate?

Spreading Seeds – the new role model

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

 
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” -Aristotle
 

Goal: To build an economic self-sustainable community that becomes an open-source role model for other like minded 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 choose to participate.

We invite and reach out to open minded visionaries  to guide us financially in order to secure fertile land and help us develop a sound economy through micro-economic sustainable structures.

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.

We will strive to bring forward an enlighten social consciousness incorporating and working with environmentally sound models and modern thought. We will work diligently to end the practice of unpersonhood that is growing exponentially around the world.

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

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

Put aside ‘it takes a village,’ we need to start building the village, and we need to clean the place up – this is the new role model.

The hardest step is going from zero to one.

“An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.”Mahatma Gandhi

Let’s start practicing.

.
.
.
Worthwhile Skills Needed In A New Community
Land Management: water, botanical, biomass, energy, sustainable plant growth.
House Building: grid and off grid electrical solar, clean plumbing, woodworking.
Farming: organic, biodynamic, herbs, aquaponics, animal husbandry, bee and butterfly keeping, plant and wildlife management.
Medical: allopathic, Chinese, holistic.
Education of Children: Steiner, Montessori, classical, community.
Adult Education: guest lecturers, arts, philosophy, academic and physical skills.
Computer and Internet Technology: maintain and secure an open and world wide internet.
Worker Owned Business Management: dotting i’s crossing t’s, visionary business expansion.
Business Retail: co-op grocery, bakery, artists co-op, artisan village bazaar.  (Do not fear the word co-op, it is just another means of trade and barter, like a time bank).
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.

(Do not fear the word co-op, it is just another means of trade and barter, like a time bank).

Rethinking the Future

IMG_4581“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

“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

All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. –Sun Tzu

‘Capitalism is a religion – it has its books, rituals, ministers, institutions. If you are a heretic you will be shamed and condemned. If you go against its rules or systems you will be imprisoned or damned. If you becomes an expert in it you will be regarded as a high priest and richly rewarded. In the religion of Capitalism everything necessary to life on earth is regarded as a monetized resource controlled by a hierarchy, and through this hierarchy it will be decided how long you live or when you die. Capitalism creates inequality. One of its most regarded idols/deities worshiped in Capitalism is money.’ atrib. Russell Brand

In 2015 more than 90% of the world practice some form of Capitalism.

What is commodity fetishism – it is the perception of the social relationships involved in production, not as relationships among people, but as economic relationships among the money and commodities exchanged in market trade. As such, commodity fetishism transforms the subjective, abstract aspects of economic value into objective, real things that people believe have intrinsic value. — Basically, when your STUFF is more important than people.

Secession Plan B – REDUX

“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

ALL WARS ARE BANKER’S WARS

Secession – se·ces·sion; noun –
1. The ultimate congressional pink slip.
2. How to literally throw the bums out.
3. End to all Congressional pay raises and bank bailouts.
4. No more (foreign) wars.
5. When a body of citizens awaken.
6. It’s not just for Texas anymore.

.
SECESSION IS COMING Bank Bail Outs, Endless Wars, TPP, Trump WILL MAKE IT SO
(I’ll hit it eventually)

.
The US Civil War you say?
What is Prison in America today, but the New Plantation?
What is Credit Card and Student Loan Debt, but the New Reservation?
What are these Endless Wars, but a Culture of Death?

.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

–That …whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness…

The Declaration of Independence, In Congress, July 4, 1776 – The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America.
…..

If any State in the Union will declare that it prefers separation with the first alternative, to a continuance in union without it, I have no hesitation in saying “let us separate.” –Thomas Jefferson
