Large Industrial cities are perfect examples of this type of need. I am encouraged you are familiar and aware of communities that actively participate
in farming and sharing. Unfortunately, these types of communities are considered taboo and extremist. In order to sway public perception of this
lifestyle, the original lifestyle, I fear people must first starve. High population density cities are primed for collapse both agriculturally and
health/sanitation. The western and southern states past the Mississippi can handle the growth, but the East Coast cannot.
Our infrastructure would benefit from this as people traversed the states. Our nation has room for new cities, but that is not what I am going for. We
cannot just re-locate. Social scientists and Ecologists need to team up on this to determine when and where migration should occur. It is not every
citizens right to rape their local ecosystems to the brink of disease or pandemic. You do have the right to property. But ownership for
self-preservation is contrary to societal needs. Like I said, ownership and resource capitalization are the largest barriers to this idea. I am
interested in overcoming our resource greed, materialism, and fears of migrating. We must preserve the land and contribute together to harvest it.
Humans are not meant to live in cubicle apartments and re-ingest their waste water over and over and over. Nor does one have the right to own massive
land acreage and refuse the land for societal benefit. These landowners should be well paid, but not at competitive market prices. Sustainable
resources are extremely valuable, not for capitalization and fortune building, but for progression and evolution. This idea would create tons of jobs
and anyone who migrates would have employment. Social services such as doctors, police, fire, etc. would stay put, but their family members, excluding
spouses, over 18 should migrate. That is just for beginners and void of social policy change ideas, laws, etc. Does anyone have any progressive
thoughts to solve and further these ideas, or are we just too stubborn to hypothesize how to do it?
