'How does one actively go about effectively making an impact on dismantling the old broken systems?'
Excellent question, Brenda Kay, and thank you for asking. My answer is WE DON'T!
I've had thoroughly absorbing conversations with literally hundreds of people over past decades about our visions of our version of a Kindred Cluster (just invented the term this morning - I like it!)
Many even have plans for the dwellings, communal buildings, creative and wellbeing centres, gardens etc for their community. Many are already living their dream, some have partially achieved it, and for others, it's still yet to take form in the physical.
I belong to the last group as I'm yet to meet more kindred who are in readiness to start the nitty-gritty planning and real movement into building the dream.
My future visions show a massive return to the land. Tragically, much of this arises as a consequence of conflict in some cities, violence and civil war in pockets, foreign invasions, lack of jobs, economic hardship etc - ie: out of necessity rather than conscious choice in many cases.
Simultaneously, many who have held their dream for so long will soon be so fed up with inequitable, incompetent leaders and systems that they will decide to take real and practical action and put down roots.
While all this is happening, the broken systems will continue to implode as transparency reveals the extent of their greed, corruption and debt. The implosion/explosion will be hastened if we STOP feeding those wolves with our protests, time and energy.
IMAGINE the view from space when looking down at MILLIONS OF FLOURISHING KINDRED CLUSTERS of 12, 20, 200, 2000 on every continent succeeding in making their communal dreams a creative reality!
IMAGINE the benefits to our children's children. Imagine the fun, sublime creations and inventions. Learning through conflict is so yesterday. IMAGINE the joy, harmony and growth through living with kindred.
How will we know your interest if you don't declare it? I believe the time is ripe and for some overripe for this so it feels appropriate to invite readers who are genuinely interested in a similar vision to declare their interest here in as much detail as you wish.
I'll go first! I'm up for it and can go anywhere in the world. I've been discussing this here, and on my blog for years, so my views are well known by regular readers.
