do nothing. I'm already a slave. Will I just continue the way I'm going, on this railway line. A fixed direction to a fixed location and
destination. What the hell?? I can do NOTHING. NOTHING. Will I talk about it to my friends?? No, they'll alienate me. I'll be a freak. They
want their music and the games consoles. What will I do?? Me?? Who is me?? I no longer have an identity, I'm a tortured, prisoner in my own
head. Is there no future?? Is there really NO future??? How can I be heard?? This board is full of all the topics, but no solutions. I'm here
for solutions. WE NEED SOLUTIONS. REAL SOLUTIONS. Less chat, more action. NOW.

The system and everything in it functions using money or currency. Trying to fight fire with fire (more money) will only lead to more of the same
problems because it can always be bought by those who have more money.
To start fixing these problems we have to render money obsolete, in other words, starve the leaders of the fuel they use to keep going. Meaning people
have to figure out a way to come together in ways which are mutually beneficial to everybody. It hasn't really been done in a long time so we kind of
forgot how, but its easier than we think. Our fear comes from our lack of knowledge about WHAT TO DO. I have one idea at least.
A cooperative of Technical Skills. As in a Co-Op, but instead of food, it's technical skills. People would still get paid of course but the purpose
of the organization itself would not be to boost profits, but to provide vital services to the community. This cooperative would be made up of people
from different skill-sets. Each person would essentially be the boss of what they are good at. This organization would also be able to withstand
economic shock or free-fall because there will be many skills involved, not just one or two (such as in a business). This includes construction,
Electronics, Information Technology, Mechanics, Scientists, etc.
If you have enough technical people with enough skills bringing their forces together, YOU ARE INFRASTRUCTURE. You don't have to vote for anything
and hope it will work out, you don't have to buy anything and hope it will work out, you will just have the technical resources to carry it out.
This cooperative would also work as an educational model, meaning that if people wanted to learn a new technical skill, they would get that experience
through practical work that would be done. People would be allowed to work as much or as little as they needed to and expensive tuition would be
unnecessary. Just some thoughts.
But in in any case we have to think outside the box. Our leaders think in 50 year time-spans. We would have to do something shocking to derail the
