Let's Come Together: There's Power In Numbers

I've been working towards an idea, for about 20 years now, that I really think could make a positive change in the world. I've also been working on a website that would help launch this idea into action. It’s a website where we the people could come together to create our own online communities to aid us in creating our own real-life communities within or nearby our own cities. These communities would not be completely isolated or segregated from the current system. They would merely serve as a more communal alternative that would allow many to live as mankind was intended, where we work together to grow our own foods, make our own furniture, and provide our own services as much as possible, instead of focusing on profiting off the naive, the desperate, the imprisoned, the sick, and the dying. It would help citizens band together all over the world to influence their own local governments, to pool their own resources, to collectively start their own businesses, to set up their own insurance systems, to provide their own healthcare and legal services, to form their own schools and community shopping centers, and so on. These local communities would hopefully rise up in every city of every nation to push back all the political and corporate corruption and greed that is spreading like a cancer.

Right now, people are over worked, over stressed, and under paid, due to capitalistic greed. There are several examples throughout our history where mankind worked together more harmoniously and where mankind was not harmfully stretched to the limits. Now is the time for all those who wear good hearts to come together to aid one another in creating a better way of life for all those who seek it and want it. It has become my life's purpose to try and make this happen. Change must primarily take place from the ground up. I'm confident it will.

I plan to discuss this more on this site in the near future. Also, you may read my WordPress essay titled, "The Ideal Society," under my Political Views tab, to get a stronger sense of the idea.

If you like this idea, please give it a good rating and share it with others. Thanks!

  • This is exactly the type of idea I was hoping to come across!!! This idea not only makes perfect sense, it also just feels right. It's wonderful! Where do I sign up!

  • The website is still under construction, but I will post its web address on this site as soon as it's ready.

  • This reminds me of the thoughts I had after reading of the Venus Project, which got me thinking that we should do this - we should all of us link up and make it happen, not just in remote cities and towns, but in all cities and towns and transform this world starting on a specific point and make it happen!
    I'm down for helping further our ideas on this!
    I started a group of people that want to make stuff like this happen:
    www.facebook.com/groups/MyLifeMovement spread the word and get others to join as well! Together we can do it!

  • Guyus i read your comment on the Socialism or Capitalism, i have a proposal on our hypothetical country. Would we provide healthcare, education. We could tax food and foreign corporations and the only tax free corporations would be those that pay our citizens salaries and use the rest of the profit for expanding and advancing our country.

  • To SiamesePerspective:

    To answer your question "Would we provide healthcare, education?" absolutely yes. The idea is for each community to be as self-reliant and self-sustaining as possible, providing their own services, such has health and legal services, education, and making most of their own products like clothes, furniture, tools, medicines, houses, etc., as much as possible. One of the main problems with implementing this idea of creating new communities all around the world, is that different nations have different laws. For example, it would be far more difficult for people to legally come together and pool their resources in communistic countries, where the people are very oppressed. But over time, my hope is that each community, regardless of which country it's built in, can legally rise up to improve the lives of all those who join.

  • Great answer, I am writing a constitution of sorts for a hypothetical country. Which you could improve or add upon as your feel like it. So far i have done Equality and Law and order, after i am done i will be sure to post it. I am curious on your views on religion in your hypothetical country.

  • I'm guessing the post above, under anonymous, is by SiamesePerspective. If so, don't feel bad. I too have accidentally posted a comment not realizing I was no longer signed in. That's another thing Global Democracy needs to fix. It seems like if we are inactive for too long, Global Democracy automatically signs us out.

    I have also been working on a new constitution. In addition, I have been working on a declaration of interdependence. I plan to post both on this site and on my website in the near future. I've also been working on a simple oath or fundamental code of ethics that every "united citizen" would agree upon before joining. For example, every member must agree to racial tolerance. Another example, which will also address your question regarding religion, is the tolerance for religious differences, as long as one's religion does not conflict with well established laws or cause intolerable harm to humans and/or animals and/or the environment. We must try to allow for religious freedom as much as possible. One of the main reasons past systems have failed and fallen was because they did not respect the people's right and freedom to worship as one pleases.

    Keep in mind though, I'm not hoping to create a new country. It's more like a movement to form a global network of communities, where each would be free to create its own constitution and perhaps declarations. Ideally though, all these communities would share a common code of ethics, as described above, and hopefully a shared and agreed upon socioeconomic system, whereby capitalism and socialism are properly balanced out. In one sense, these communities would be divided and, in another sense, they would all be united.

    I would enjoy reading your constitution when it is posted. I'll keep checking back from time-to-time and will keep an eye out for it. May your days be filled with joy while you're working on it as my days were and still are.

    Good luck,

  • In the USA there are a couple groups I know of which are already doing this. They are a religious groups. they have done this since coming to USA a long time ago. This is a nice way to live, but it would be quite unacceptable for many. It needs work to allow a wider public acceptance. I do like your many of your thoughts.

  • ~your headline, could be mis-leading.. without, being condescending> i was inclined to issue Cation, against "group-think"...after reading your , submission, i respect what you propose, and seek to , install. >many of us, would echo, your thoughts. >it's ACTION, that we lack. FUNDING, energy..to implement. a good idea.

  • At last, sooemne who knows where to find the beef

  • Hi! Really good post! I am just a usual visitor to your site (very much like adcdit ) to your website even though I had a concern. I am just not at all for sure whether it is the right web site to ask, but you've got no spam comments. I receive comments very frequently. Possibly can you assist me? Regards!

  • I object because the idea is not well stated. I can't understand what is meant.

  • ATTENTION TO ALL READERS: PLEASE READ MY POSTS CAREFULLY AND FULLY BEFORE GIVING IT A NEGATIVE RATING OR BEFORE POSTING A NEGATIVE COMMENT. SO FAR, ALMOST EVERY NEGATIVE RATING AND COMMENT (WHICH THANKFULLY ARE FEW) WAS DUE TO A LACK OF CAREFUL READING. AND IT’S UNFORTUNATE THAT MY RATINGS HAVE TO SUFFER FOR THE LAZINESS, NEGLIGENCE, OR INCOMPETENCE OF OTHERS. THIS OF COURSE IS TO BE EXPECTED SOMEWHAT WHEN ALLOWING FREE SPEECH. NOT ALL COMMENTERS ARE GOING TO BE INTELLIGENT OR JUSTIFIED IN WHAT THEY SAY. BUT WHAT MAKES THIS ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT IS THAT GLOBAL DEMOCRACY IS STILL NOT SET UP, YET, TO ALLOW EACH OF US TO MORE DIRECTLY REPLY TO ANOTHER POSTER’S COMMENTS, TO PERHAPS HELP THEM SEE THEIR ERROR IN JUDGMENT OR TO RECONSIDER THEIR POSITION, NOR ARE ANY OF US NOTIFIED BY GLOBAL DEMOCRACY WHEN COMMENTS ARE POSTED. HAVING SAID THAT, DO FEEL FREE TO GIVE ME A NEGATIVE RATING AND/OR TO LEAVE A RESPECTFUL, INTELLIGIBLE CRITIQUE IF YOU BELIEVE IT’S TRULY DESERVING AS LONG AS YOU HAVE CAREFULLY AND FULLY READ MY POST. I’M WILLING TO TOLERATE NEGATIVE FEEDBACK AS LONG AS IT’S NOT DUE TO A LACK OF CAREFUL READING ON YOUR PART. THANKS FOR READING THIS ALL THE WAY THROUGH!
