I HAVE A DREAM

A town with 80% of the trees being fruit or nut trees. Every other block a community garden. No harming the animals. No economy. Everybody just does their part to keep the town fed and running. No accidental pregnancies. No one obligates another to themselves, and no legal commitment to anyone except one's own unprocessed Soylent Green cra. . .I mean, children. If it harms no one, it's legal. Only history books as history actually happened. Follow whatever deity you choose, in your own way. Cut down a tree, plant two. A filtered water fountain at every corner. Bramble berries, wherever there's room. No cars, but electric public transport in tubes, so critters rarely get run over. Stone buildings. Keep the need for dead trees to a minimum. No set social roles, no set social expectations because of what you are. The more you perform for your community, the higher your status, like with the Plains Indians. (Probably more tribes, but generosity was a 'pillar' of the Lakota.)

What would the world be like?

That would be lovely, but could never happen in most of society. Maybe we should make a town, the only citizens being the Westgate members. That might work, but the reat of the world, at least from what I see, couldn't hack being nice to each other and others.

Couldn't have it.  Local, state and federal governments will want to tax you, and they tend to destroy self-contained societies.  Worthless shites.

I'd like it if in a town, every parade began and ended in the local cemetery.  It's an acknowledgment of ancestors and parental authority in our lives, and our own future among them.

i really think that someday we could have that kind of society. between Mother Earth and the humans fucking themselves over,  i think A LOT of people are going to die. and who knows, maybe part of the plan is for people like us to survive and make something beautiful out of this place...again.it's just speculation, i mean, maybe humans have fucked up so bad that we might as well end the world that goes on here on Earth. there once were people who could live like that, for the most part. and i tend to think even if a few survived and could start their own society, all over again, it would all probably happen all over again. but morgan, a place like that would be really nice, and maybe we could just avert the taxes...like when they really started coming after us a natural disaster could happen and we'd all die and not have to pay anything!!!!!! haha, funny thought.

The whole New World lived like that before the European invasion, didn't it?  And most of Africa, Australia, much of Asia?  The islands?  No monetary economy?  Great life.  

After the end of this era (the war to end all wars until the cycle of idiocy begins again), me thinks there will be no economy for quite a while.

I don't care how good life will get after this mess cleans up, I'm sick of wasting my time here.  I don't like being other than self-contained.  I don't like needing food, sleep, shelter, air, and all these things to keep myself running in a state I think is absolutely disgusting.  I don't like not being able to travel at the speed of thought, and I really, REALLY am sick of not being with my two favourite Gatekeepers, and not knowing college level conversational Catonese.

I'm completely fed up with the Physical Realm, and it's stupid limitations, its mostly retarded inhabitants, and the inability to access the REAL TRUTH of why and how everything is.

I didn't cause all these stupid problems, and I don't feel like wasting any more time, energy or resources trying fix them.

Well, other than effortless stuff like being an agent on Surfing the Apocalypse, and all that.

That's fun, though.   I get to be an obnoxious asshole while informing people.

Why is the human race so stupid?  (Survey, sorta.)

I think the primary reason is ego.  (My excuse.  I mean, why else hurl myself over the road divider by the Pruneyard is San Jose, on Bascom, not that I'm in any shape to do that right now.  Man, the citation I woulda got if I'd been busted.  I sure woulda made the Marines proud, though.  That motha was tall.)

The secondary reason is lazyness; mostly from an intellectual level, but hey!

Hmm..I´ve been thinking it´s Ego too, but it doesn´t fit. Ego should make sure that we didn´t suffer, no one wants that. I think it´s the way that we behave..like the idea of world humans have isn´t really the world, but they are so stuck in the make-believe-game that they can´t see the world for all the stuff in the way anymore. They see "WORLD" and "WILDERNESS"..And it takes some thinking until they realize it´s all the same, and that the inhabited places and cities are even less real, because of their very unnatural structure.

So they turn stupid, following rules that aren´t real, thinking things like a monetary system HAS to exist and that it´s of course a good thing to be a slave under something instead of actually trying to break bad things and processes so they won´t continue.
