This post was inspired by conversations with a friend about current events and what it means to be happy. I’ve seen the idea of communal living
tossed around here on ATS before, but I wasn’t sure if it’s gone any further than that or not. It’s always been my plan to open one, but time is
running out and cash isn’t the easiest thing to come by in a dying economy.
We’ve been discussing disappearing off the face of the planet as far as other people are concerned or leaving the country. In order to do that
I’ve been trying to make some residual income but thus far the internet god Googleopules has taken pleasure in smiting me. That bring us up to this
moment, a long journey I know.
Here you can discuss your ideas, what you’d be willing to donate, and even branch off into separate groups. Too many people in one place attracts
attention and one Waco was enough to get the message. If for any reason you don’t feel comfortable posting here, feel free to drop me a private
What we are not looking for are people who are skeptics or those that dabble in conspiracy theories. We need those that understand that the word
“theory” is attached for the skeptics and that “conspiracy” is easily exchangeable for “truth”. If you’re religious or believe that God
is hiding in a book, stay home. It’s nothing personal, but the whole idea of starting a commune is to gain some peace and put some distance between
ourselves and the demons.
If you’ve had your Oneness realization or started your spiritual journey / self-discovery, you’re more than welcome to come. This helps ensure
peace and understanding. I would have no problem whatsoever helping you find your true self and would prefer to be in the company of those that feel
the same way. With that in mind, there will be no followers, only equal leaders.
Before I get to the communal ideas section I’d like to state a couple things. First, I have no desire to live like a bum as you shall see and
boredom is a word you can forget what you leave. Second, before any apocalypse-like event occurs, I have every intention of helping people. We’d
like to pass out free DVDs, fliers, and talk to those we can.
- Comfortable housing that is well concealed and feels like a home. I will not be discussing the method of concealment on here so please do not ask.
Ideally, everyone would have their own room and their own space. Also, there would be multiple lounge areas with TV’s for DVDs and gaming consoles.
Me and Super Nintendo plan on riding out the apocalypse together lol.
- An independent source of electricity and water (probably solar power). If you have some sort of Tesla like idea for generating power, I’m open for
suggestions. However, if you bring me a potato with some wires in it connected to a light bulb, I will make you eat both the potato and the light
- A stockpile of food and other supplies such as medical, toiletries, non-fluoridated toothpaste, etc. Spam, dried noodles, and other grains I am
considering. I’m aware that Spam doesn’t taste good and it’s probably not a meat with origins on this planet, but it’s cheap and has things
like fat and proteins that the body needs that are hard to find in nature. Plus, it will outlive most of us.
- Aquaponics, both indoor and outdoor, and a traditional garden. I’d like to eat as little meat as possible but the aquaponics will probably
incorporate Tilapia. Also, we will be implementing food preservation techniques such as drying.
- Goods to trade when paper money becomes worthless.
- A means of transportation whether it be a wood-burning car or a fuel reserve.
Come up with some good ideas and I’ll add them to the list.
One last thing I want to mention before summing this up is that I’m open to business partners. The idea that I have and am currently implementing
works and should remain viable until the economic collapse. The problem is it’s a soul stealing occupation and I’m lazy about things that destroy
me. Some say it’s just the way I was born. Anyway, if you’d like to help, get paid, and make the above a reality I’m down. I’ll even help
others start their own projects, but nothing silly. I’d hate to split a minimum wage paycheck between 8 people.
