Capitalism isn't working. And for the solution, let's think outside of a never-ending battle over money distribution. No matter what name an economic system is given, when capital is still a thing, capitalism is still very much in effect. To kill capitalism, we have to nix capital, which is a concept existing only in the human mind. Money and ownership are just part of the controlling narrative in the game we're all playing. We've inherited an inequitable and unjust system founded on illusory wealth, which comes at the expense of everyone's true wealth: good health, freedom, peace and happiness.
The basis of this community is imagining and shaping a future beyond the delusions... a world where we live in harmony with other species, and all beings are free from exploitation; a totally organic, regenerative world in which we are no longer poisoning and decimating the planet and ourselves; a world of minimalism and collaboration, not accumulation and competition; a world of restorative justice, not punishment and revenge; a demilitarized, disarmed world without war; a boundless world without borders.
Rather than spending our energy fighting the existing system to try to transform it, our mission here is self-transformation... each of us bringing our own life as closely into alignment with our vision for society as we possibly can... being, as Ghandi advised us, the change we wish to see in the world. That is the path - walking the walk, and leading by example - the only path that will ever get us there. Our peaceful, grassroots revolution is about recognizing the interdependence of all things, taking responsibility for all the ways we show up in the world, and coming together to create a new, heart-centered model for living, in which communities, and eventually broader societies, function like families, whose members take care of each other. It's about acknowledging the madness and unfairness of our current egocentric system, and fostering greater empathy, respect, openness, kindness, generosity, solidarity, trust, and greater love, as we hold the greater good as our highest priority.
So, this website will be a social network with a consciousness-raising and activism focus. Development is in progress, and we hope to be ready to make it public soon.
