I agree wholeheartedly on this. The main goal of our current "civilization" today is to feed the beast of materialism. As intellectual animals we are
farmed for maximum debt and put into the system as cogs in the machine. If the cog breaks or wears down then we are replaced. The last thing that TPTB
want us to do is awaken and walk a spiritual Path.
There have been spiritual civilizations in the past that honored the spiritual Path of the individual (e.g. Ancient Egypt, Native America, etc). Of
course recreating any of these would be very difficult since we are in the dark ages of the Kali Yuga which is the most materialistic of the 4
However, there are those who have started down this path and more join every day. What if we recreated the small farm as a community farm rather than
the family farm. Essentially all would be shared and owned in common: tools, land, vehicles, food, livestock, energy, skills, etc. each community
would be different but would have common themes of permaculture, aquaponics, renewable energy and living in harmony and respect for Nature rather than
trying to tame or dominate it. This is all doable especially if we give up the notion that we all need our own house to prove we are successful.
I am currently in the planning stages for such a community. This will also include shared living space, a shared kitchen, dorms for long term
visitors, a sweat lodge, spaces for ceremonies / meditation / teaching / healing, a smokehouse, root cellar / cheese cave, fruit trees, greenhouses,
fish pond / cranberry bog and whatever else we can think of that enhances the journey and provides for diversity in harmony with Nature. Recycled
materials will be used wherever possible and passive solar techniques / natural energy harvesting wherever possible.
Will it be a lot of work? Absolutely! However, it won't be a JOB for anyone. For those who say this is utopian thinking and that it is impossible to
scale this to 7 billion people... Yeah, you are probably right. But we have to start down the path of more sustainable diversified harmonious
communities that all can share in.
In the U.S. Where I live our leaders have saddled us with $7 trillion in debt plus 100s of Trillions in unfunded liabilities, hollowed out the economy
by catering to the multinational corporations (outsourcing, off shoring, subsidies, regulations designed to restrict innovation and disruptive
technogy, etc.) this has led to a rapid and continuing decline in the number of high paying jobs. Even people with advanced degrees have trouble
getting jobs in the 3rd world nation of the USSA. 50 million people currently get welfare and or food stamps in the US today. I would bet that the
vast majority would rather have the dignity of providing for themselves as part of a productive community rather than taking government fiat and
eating processed food.
These trends will continue as technology automates almost everything and corporations source the cheapest labor globally. We have to come up with a
better way to distribute the basic necessities - food, water, shelter, healthcare,etc. there won't be enough jobs for everyone so that system will be
broken and is already showing major cracks. The alternative is to give in to the NWO / eugenics agenda and allow ourselves to be used, harvested and
eliminated once we become "useless eaters" to those in control.
