Im 26 and tired of all the dead end jobs and the impossible school costs. I want what I do everday to matter. I dont want to work everday for someone else while my work doesnt benifit me in any way other than monetarily. I dont care about money. It is the cause of strife, casting of people into social ecomomic castes is a crime. Yet every country seems to think it is necisary. I do not. I want to start a place that isnt driven by the dollar but instead on the betterment of each of us. We have the technology and intelligence to fix this world but the majority of people only care about themselves or how much money you have. I do not. If your poor I have been there. Have an addiction problem. Ive od twice and only been clean for two years. I know what it is like to be so miserable in your day to day life that you have to turn to things that may end up ending it. I know what its like to struggle for food and for a warm place to sleep. I dont want to live my life knowing that I could have done something differently. Not struggled everyday just to make sure I had enough money so that I could so what someone else said was important. I want to be in control of my own life. People work day after day for what? for a little piece of cloth that is becoming less and less valuble. Why does it have a value? Does it give you sustenance? Does it give you shelter? I could have a million dollars but if Im alone stranded in the woods all its going to do is keep me warm for a night. I dont believe in the system we currently have and just want to make a place where I can be proud to live.
I am looking at land in Oregon. I have a prototype design drawn for a central green/great/aquaponic house powered by solar and hydroelectric power while also using manure/ waste for heat if necisarry and as back up. Plans for each person/family to individually design their home while comunity helps build it. It still needs tweaks and the system isnt tested but mathmatically I think its sound. I have read thousands(not an understatement) of books and articles on so many subjects pertaing to green living,starting a farm and sustainable living. I know it will take more than one person(About six so far interested) to do this. So far its just a dream and a plan for within the next 3 years.
