WATCH: Building Community – #SolutionsWatch

The powers-that-shouldn’t-be are trying to keep us apart. Divided. Alone in the urban jungle.

And so, building community is a way to fight back by constructing something new…But no one said building a community is easy.

Join James Corbett for this episode of #SolutionsWatch, as he looks at The Conscious Agora and other examples of people coming together to create a better world.

You know, they now have “Little Houses” which are kind of like overgrown doll houses. How about a couple of us get together, find a vacant lot (I’m sure they’re everywhere) and erect a Little House.

And we could get three great big dogs so that their body heat could keep the house warm in winter. And we could make a little garden out back to grow food for ourselves and our dogs. We’ll want to grow some grain so we can make our own dog food of course.

All in all, a very good, rewarding time will be had!

We need to think about what WE want next, because the WEF’s plans are doomed to fail. Over a year ago, we rejected the WEF’s Nazi passports. They then tried the Slava Ukraine thing, which doesn’t appear to be going too well for them either – funny how the virtue-signaling dropped off the proverbial cliff when the first gas bills of the winter landed on people’s door mats! I think that their next plans will fail too; for reasons of self-interest, there’s no way that Sebastian Red Trousers from Surrey will accept 15 minute cities or other lifestyle restrictions which will reduce their material standard of living. In contrast, asking people to wear a slave muzzle in return for furlough or WFH was an easy sell. They won’t stand for 15 minute cities. The other thing to factor in is that there’s way more people awake now than there were when we pushed back and beat them on the Nazi passports. Programmable CBDCs will not be accepted by ‘normie’ consensus huggers either because they’ll see it as being against their self-interest. The globalists cultivated a moral decline, and now the selfishness that THEY created will be their own downfall. And that’s why Klaus and the gang are screwed! The economy and our current financial system will collapse though, so we will have an opportunity to reshape society, because something new will be needed. The old normal has gone. This is video outlines what I would like to see next, and why. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zevCyJQsBe8

“i am utterly sick of self appointed experts”

No shit!

The most ridiculous thing is that all these know-it-all gurus who write fucking books on how to build a community (I wonder how many communities they’ve built) are using essentially the same approach, the same kind of technocratic thinking as the technocrats they’re in theory opposing.

My guess is that if they managed to built their intentional community, they’d eventually turn into the same kinda oppressive pricks as the ones that are pestering is now.

BTW, the only community I’m aware of – maybe apart from kibutzes in Israel that apparently kinda used to work – is Gabriola Island, a small island off Victoria Island in B.C. I used to know a violin player who lived there. But that’s a long time ago, who knows what’s happened there by now.

Does anybody know of an actual self-contained community that lives somewhere off-grid, detached from mainstream society? Amish?

Other than that, you gotta build your “community” within the mainstream society, by flying under the radar, having likeminded contacts, etc.

ye see,

this community thing is a nice idea, but very problematic.

there are, frankly, too many cunts far too full of themselves for a “community” to work in the fukt west… you see it in all the hippy/alt/whateverthefuck self proclaimed good guys too – they are all hubristic cunts, so expert in everything, as long as they are centre of attention/activity… aye right, experts in their own fukn ego/want/need anomy and worse . .

i am utterly sick of self appointed experts who will disagree with me, not through knowledge or experience, never mind some “truth”… purely through their own ego and refusal to accept their limited life (knowledge) and where it has got them: cunts, full of their own belief. they will bitch and whine and aggress to get their way, even if they’re fuckmuppetubernumpties. entitled scumfucks, in all camps.

I am talking about our “us”. not the moron horde.

Kurt’s sorta there, but how mant egg/beer traders are still trying to swindle each other as they go..? there it is. a world of cunts. no doubt Kurt will correct me… lol

there is no community in a materialist consumer society. most people appear that they’d rather continue consuming than address their lifestyle deficit (= fuck the niggers/chinks/sweatshops/imbalance of worth, as long as i can shop with clean fingernails) and i am talking about us, here.

sorry to be so negative. i will be a community, but it’ll take time, no fake people welcome, ever, and unfortunately that’s 90% of people. soft snobs will never be welcome, same as lazy people.

see your ego/self perception and blissful good life dreams, YOU CAN TAKE IT THE FUCK FAR AWAY, like a ladybird book. until i see people dig dirt and break their nails and work in misery… they will not be worthy; they’ll be the fuckers trying to “coordinate” or “organise” rather than howk or dig. Seen it all before.

if ye cannae ditch yer black mirror, what real community are you going to enjoy?

i appreciate the hopium, but society around here is too far gone. When it comes to e.g. soup kitchens and tatties and our “hunger for the cabbage”, you’ll just get the same fucking K&K rallying “their” “troops”, which usually boils down to my way, as long as it is my way and i get all the credit…

Community? what an abused word since agenda 21, eh…

Society? lol who said that. i am coming from the opposite end… maybe she was correct on that tho’?

It won’t be easy because it will be impossible.

Buying large swaths of vacant land in the middle of nowhere sounds great in one’s mind. First, you need a bottomless pit of money that will have been funneled out the “the establishment”.

Generally, vacant land is vacant because it is marginal and bound to burn out relatively quickly. Especially in the absence of modern day fertilizers. Then what?

How will that work out with reproduction and the needed expansion to accommodate a growing population? You will need twice as much land to replace the burned out land and the added land to support the growth.

This method of farming will require a kind of like slashing and burning methodology. You would need a thousand acres where you only use 100 acres at a time. The unused portion being rested would become grown over with weeds and brush in no time. Every spring would require a fantastic amount of energy to prepare the land for crops.

Population would need to be limited to what?, maybe 10 people? Eventually everyone would grow too old to do physical labor.

The idea of living independently of the government is implied but not defined.

What about income? Energy will be needed to facilitate planting, cultivation, harvesting and, potentially, irrigation. Is everything going to be done by hand? Will everything be electric and based on solar panels and wind turbines? That is a lot of upstart cost. And what about the absence of wind and sun…..on the same day……?

And when the land burns out, what do you do about the fixed investments? It would take a lot effort to “pick them up and move them”. Or……., dip into the bottomless pit of money,….. again.

It could become a commercialized Fat farm, I guess. Charge people to work the farm while losing weight. Just give them water.

Reminds me a little of the California homeless encampments in most public spaces in that state.

What about human waste? There are well defined rules about dealing with it pretty much everywhere. You can’t just recycle it by spreading it on the fields. Eventually, the E. coli will find it’s way into the water and food supply. Everyone would probably die of dysentery.

It won’t take long for these new settlements to adopt modern measures to manage waste, water, storm water, soil fertility, soil erosion, etc., etc., etc., I can’t see it. Not if they want to keep living like Hippies from the 60s. Maybe after a catastrophic event where squatters are forced to live like animals until they figure it out while living a hunter gatherer lifestyle. Only the most able bodied people would survive.

Otherwise, no, I can’t see it. Pie in the sky.

Bernie Sanders style.

A once good friend (now a leftist Covid adversary) suggested that few farms are profitable and only were early on because they acquired the farms for free via the Homestead Act. Today’s operating costs now exceed the profits and the farms are unsustainable. He still operates the family farm he grew up on. His father worked full time in addition to running the farm which was/is barely a break even business. 300 acres with outdated equipment and zero debt. That is happening in southern Illinois.

An associate of mine grew up on a similar sized farm in Nebraska. Same circumstances. His dad worked a full time job while running the farm. Old equipment, no debt, barely broke even on the farm business. Homestead Act, again.

I can’t see it.

Farming for a commune in the middle of nowhere is a lot more than plowing, planting and harvesting.

Like minded insane people who live in the city and don’t a clue want to do this.

I like my warm bed and refrigerated food produced by someone else.

We need more nuke plants. Currently the best source of electricity on the planet.

There are traditional alternatives to modern farming and slash-and-burn. The former only destroys the land and indebts you. It is because the alternatives work that governments coerce small farmers with various restrictions and ultimately drive them out.

Independence is the key assumption; You and the land with no outside influence. You can’t raise enough animals to produce the fertilizer needed to keep your soils fertile. They will burn out. (I guess I am trying to read your mind.) My picture involves marginal land with limited potential to start with. Grazing animals and marginal land are not a match made in heaven, especially if you have slope involved. An eroded gully waiting to happen (that is assuming there will be enough rain, although it only takes one “gully washer” to do the damage). Same for a freshly planted crop. The pitfalls of farming land are huge. The best management practices are not always sufficient even when you have every resource available for dealing with those problems. Huge investments that will never be recovered are needed to nurture the land and keep it viable. Farmers and land have always been at odds. Nature’s solution to soil stability is a lot different than a farmer’s solution. I once suggested that I would like to be a farmer to my associate. His answer, “No you don’t”. Not as glorious as one might think. The highlight of the Farmer’s year: Getting the hell out of dodge and spending a few days at the State Fair to watch tractor pull and seeing which 4H kid grew the biggest hog. The Clint Eastwood – Meryl Streep flick comes to mind…….. Sorry. There will never be Utopia on Earth. It’s not in our blood.

“You can’t raise enough animals to produce the fertilizer needed”

Not true. I ran my own smallholding on 2 acres for 20+ years, our two horses provided more than enough manure, used with annual bonfires (potash) and the compost heap – it all worked fine, but bloody hard work; I couldn’t do it now.

We managed to produce all our own food: meat from goats, chicken, rabbit – all veg in season, fruit trees and bushes and foraging. We might have made our own soap (it’s awful!) and other household ‘stuff’ was bought. I realised there was no way to be self-sufficient at modern standards on LAND. https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Complete-Book-Self-Sufficiency-realists/dp/0751364428

However, as a life-long yachtsman I was able to live on my boat for many years after downsizing from the smallholding when my 4 kids finally left. A well-found yacht in the hands of an experienced skipper is the nearest I have ever got to self-sufficiency.

It can be and is done. Look at the Amish. Their land is burning out too. Just not as fast. They started with the best soils on the face of the earth. That’s not the point. Soft bodied greenhorns reading books and moving out of the city to already burned out marginal land is the problem. If there is some sort of die off and quality soiled farms are available, I could see it. Then your biggest problem would be fending off the Russians and/or Chinese that will be coming to collect the spoils of their pulse bombs. The bomb that has the capability of destroying every electrical circuit it touches rendering the systems they are a part of useless. You know: The communications, transportation, and utility infrastructure. I wrote about this scenario once before and my critics refused to accept that such an event would ever happen. Something like,”Even the Russians and Chinese would never do such a thing”. Keep kidding yourselves. How would that be that different than trying to vaccinate the World’s population with a poisonous clot shot? Many people are calling the mRNA jabs a culling. We know how that one went. They know it too. And they don’t care. There are plenty of climate activists that would view a pulse bomb as a positive. Another population culling that will reduce Carbon emissions. Genocide is part of our history. Over and over. People are ruthless. It’s in our genes. I digress.

You might digress but you speak the truth, H. There are many greedy people but also, in my travels, I have found plenty of gentle and caring souls – I know because I am married to a South African one, and most have little to give but do so anyway.

After 20+ years on my smallholding the soil was better than when I first encountered it as an open field. Nature will always do the work if allowed. But you are right to warn of a pulse bomb at which time I trust I shall be at sea!

I’m starting to be a bit put off by James Corbett… he’s a bit patronizing…
Then if you haven’t watch “episode 206” or “episode 104”, then you have to watch them, otherwise he thinks you’re not going to understand the point… and if you go back to “episode 206”, in it says that if you haven’t watched “episode 65”, then… bla bla bla…
What does he know about ‘community’ organization any way??? Is he doing it with his japanese neighbours, or it’s just bla bla bla for others???
And if you live in a city and have no chance to move to the countryside… then this video isn’t for you… according to James Corbett!!!
“Eco villages” are all pagan communities… Derrick Broze and his wife are pagans, either they knows it or not, but the stuff they follows is new age paganism; “HOLISM”, “consciousness”, “awakening”, “wholeness”, “mindfulness”, “yoga”, etc are all typical pagan doctrines – it’s the idea that the individual disappears in the name of the ‘whole’; peculiar that these doctrines were mentioned by people such as Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey which are the two main spiritual [pagan] references of the United Nations…so for me… no thanks!!! It sounds like another hippish cult where its members are brainwashed into paganism… the entire hippy culture is pagan, again, either they know it or not… it’s always about being against any type of “authority”, the idea of being “rebels” [sic]… then they believe they are so clever and original, and don’t have the slightest clue that they were brainwashed with pagan doctrines and traditions!!!
“Manifesto of the free humans” sounds pretty much the same ass the type of “liberty” americans always parroted, without knowing that this “liberty” has always meant ‘liberty from God’, as the concept was coined during the “enlightenment”, a movement fostered by judeo-masonry in the 18th century.
“Extraocular vision” sounds like pagan/occult stuff… most paganism is directly linked with occultism.
Of course if one doesn’t know anything about paganism and the occult, one will not discern anything at all and fall for every single trick in the book.
And again, is James following and doing everything that he preaches?
Food for thought!!!

Maybe he knows something we don’t know. Maybe we won’t have a choice. Some people will have the resources to start a new community from scratch if needed in the event of a catastrophe.

Walden 2, Prevention or Intervention. From Nowhere and Utopia. What’s the point? The Objective, The Purpose !MARCH 15, 2022

But there was, I think, a better reason why more and more people began to read the book. The world was beginning to face problems of an entirely new order of magnitude-the exhaustion of resources, the pollution of the environment, overpopulation, and the possibility of a nuclear holocaust, to mention only four. Physical and biological technologies could, of course, help. We could find new sources of energy and make better use of those we had. The world could feed itself by growing more nutritious grains and eating grain rather than meat. More reliable methods of contraception could keep the population within bounds. Impregnable defenses could make a nuclear war impossible. But that would happen only if human behavior changed, and how it could be changed was still an unanswered question. How were people to be induced to use new forms of energy, to eat grain rather than meat, and to limit the size of their families; and how were atomic stockpiles to be kept out of the hands of desperate leaders? From time to time policy makers in high places have been urged to pay more attention to the behavioral sciences. The National Research Council, the operative arm of the National Academy of Sciences, made one such proposal a number of years ago, pointing out that useful “insights in policy formulation” had been developed. But it implied that the chief role of the behavioral sciences was to collect facts and insisted, possibly to reassure policy makers who might be alarmed by the ambitions of scientists, that “knowledge is no substitute for wisdom or common sense in making decisions.” Science would get the facts but Congress or the President would make the decisions-with wisdom and common sense. vii It is true that when the behavioral sciences have gone beyond the collection of facts to recommend courses of action and have done so by predicting consequences, they have not been too helpful. Not all economists agree, for example, on how an increase or reduction in taxes or a change in interest rates will affect business, prices, or unemployment, and political scientists are no more likely to agree on the consequences of domestic or international policies. In anthropology, sociology, and psychology the preferred formulations are those that do not dictate action. A thoroughgoing developmentalism, for example, almost denies the possibility of effective action. Applied psychology is usually a mixture of science and common sense, and Freud regarded therapy as a minor contribution of psychoanalysis.
B. F. SKINNER January, 1976

Chapter 3 (Sheep)
. We set out across the field to the south, skirting a fairly large flock of sheep. The sheep were kept together by a single length of string, carrying occasional bits of cloth like a kite-tail, and supported on poles stuck into the ground to form a square fold. Rogers commented on this insubstantial arrangement. ‘We wanted an expanse of cropped grass in our front yard,” Frazier explained, “but it’s too close to the buildings for a regular sheep pasture. It’s used a great deal by the children. In fact, we all use it as a sort of lawn. By the way9′-he turned particularly to Castle and me-“do you remember Veblen’s analysis of the lawn in the Theory of the Leisure Class?” “I do, indeed,” said Castle. “It was supposed to represent a bit of choice but conspicuously unconsumed pasture.” Castle’s diction was always precise, but occasionally, as in this instance, he burlesqued himself with added delicacy. “That’s right,” said Frazier, with a slight smile. “Well, this is our lawn. But we consume it. Indirectly, of course -through our sheep. And the advantage is that it doesn’t consume us. Have you ever pushed a lawn mower? The stupidest machine ever invented-for one of the stupidest of purposes. But I digress. We solved our problem with a portable electric fence which could be used to move our flock of sheep about the lawn like a gigantic modng machine, but leaving most of it free at any time. At night the sheep are taken across the brook to the main fold. But we soon found that the sheep kept to the enclosure and quite clear of the fence, which didn’t need to be electrified. So we substituted a piece of string, which is easier to move around.” “What about the new lambs?” Barbara asked, turning her head at a slight angle and looking at Frazier from the comers of her eyes. “They stray,” Frazier conceded, “but they cause no trouble and soon learn to keep with the flock. The curious thing is-you will be interested in this, Burris-the curious thing is that most of these sheep have never been shocked by the fence. Most of them were born after we took the wire away. It has become a tradition among our sheep never to approach string. The lambs acquire it from their elders, whose judgment they never question!’ “It’s fortunate that sheep don’t talk,” said Castle. “One of them would be sure to ask ‘Why?’ The Philosophical Lambkin.” “And some day a Skeptical Lambkin would put his nose on the string and nothing would happen and the whole sheepfold would be shaken to its very foundations,” I added. “And after him, the stampede!” said Casde. “I should have told you,” said Frazier soberly, “that no small part of the force of tradition is due to the quiet creature you see yonder.” He pointed to a beautiful sheep dog, which was watching us from a respectful distance. “We call him the Bishop.”

With all due disrespect, we don’t need more “experts” telling the little sheeple how to eat, sleep, commune, or perform any other facet of a fully developed individual. These “experts” have done more to destroy the freedoms of human knowledge and enterprise, than the organizations of “snakes” they allegedly disdain. ALL organizations suck wind.

The powers-that-shouldn’t-be are trying to keep us apart. Divided. Alone in the urban jungle.

Yes, I agree, but division is inherent in human culture. The reality is that “us v them” (even “us” the good people v “them” the PTB) is an illusion. It’s just a mental construct, nothing more. We’re all individuals, all different. Even the likes of Schwab has things in common with people who come on here.

But, of course, I would certainly expect resistance to this here. Some will hiss and downvote, and (or) accuse me of being “on the side” of them. But I don’t take sides, because in reality there are no sides to take.

Some people here (including myself) have some sympathy with the Russian position on Ukraine – though I do not support in any way the war started in 2022. (or is it 2014 – you take your pick). But you will note, as I do, that the MSM demonises Putin with the same venom that people here might demonise Gates.

I don’t support Gates or Putin. But I have no need to demonise them. It only weakens you, the demoniser, it has no effect on them.

So what then do you do about “them”? Well, if you want to remain stuck in a divided world then just carry on as you are. Keep on shaking your fists at a “them” that don’t really exist. Nothing will change, and nothing will change until you first change and drop the “us v them” mentality.

I am not suggesting that you trust these people. I don’t really trust anybody excepting myself, but I am not openly hostile to others – I don’t regard others as “enemies” even if they think of me in that way.

I am opposed to digital passports, CBDC, to forced vaccinations, to war, to lockdowns and to globalism in general.

But those that push these things, however oppressive, are still your brothers and sisters. And you will have far more chance of influencing and changing them, in my opinion, if you appeal to our common humanity rather than baying for the blood of these people and offering them a rope to hang themselves on.

There is a difference between those who want things to be organized differently from which things are organized. . I agree with you people in the minority are entitled to their opinions and even to do what they can to bring change to the status quo. But when a mass of humanity wants what they have, and a few want something different, and the few expend energy to organize themselves with intent to force the masses to reorganize to suit the few such amounts to corruption. and all corruption is a crime against humanity.

This is one of the many problems with allowing corporations<=non human entities to exist. No matter the size the objectives of the NHO are to impose a minority intention by becoming more powerful than one voice among many voices. The NHO becomes more powerful than any of the individuals in the unorganized masses. Organization sucks the energy from, and disenfranchises the independent voices of its human members such that the NHO becomes powerful, even more powerful than, the sum of its members. Thus the wishes of the masses are overpowered by the stronger NHO. This is why the divide and conquer strategy trends to bipolar NHO; political paries, the political parties silence the individual while at the same time the political paries sap the human energy to build the strength of the organization.

Since all power belongs to the government, the government loses some of its power to each organization (corporation, partnership, trust) it recognizes or allows to be formed. When government loses enough power by transfer of its power to a NHO; the political system no longer affords opportunity to the individuals that make up the masses to have a say. At that point, the political system no longer serves the masses. In time the organizations control the political system and begin to use the political system to control the masses.

I think the only way we can stop this corruption and the imposition of the few over the many – and the other things the few do to the many (exploitation, etc.) – is to end lobbyism in politics.

Perhaps we can also institute direct democracy (we have the technology for that) for all major bills to be passed in parliament, as a start. Only if the majority of we the people still believe government at the federal level is necessary.

Better still perhaps is eliminate federal government altogether and have only regional governments serving the people, not the corporations.

But how to bring this about?

Recommending (again) the book 5 stages of collapse from Dmitri Orlov.

He experienced the collapse of SU and diagnosed the signs of collapse when he lived in US for a couple of years. His examples for each of the levels are particularly instructive, so the Russian Mafia, the Pashtuns, the gypsies and the Ik. Your choice.

It’s been crystal clear to anyone not living in denial that the First World is destined to collapse just like the Second World did, it was just a question of time.

The First World won the struggle against its nemesis, the Communist bloc, only thanks to corrupting itself through debt that allowed its populations to live light years beyond their means. It’s been clear that all those luxuries shoveled down the throats of the First World’s populations would be eradicated since roughly the mid-1990s. A new lease on life has been given to the First World though hallucinatory financial machinations in the first decades of the 2000s; alas, all that’s over now, and the collapse is imminent, if it hasn’t happened already.

What’s different from the collapse of the Soviet Union, or the Second World, is that whatever it is that the world is shifting toward is entirely new. Most of the Second World was swallowed by the First World, to a lesser or greater extent, and/or adopted its socioeconomic schemes. Thanks to that, the collapsed Second World was able to ride on the coattails of the First World prosperity of the second half of the 20th century, albeit not for too long. Now, we’re all entering the unknown. There is no past experience, nothing previously established to use as a template for the new era.

Things might be – quite gravely – exacerbated by all sorts of other factors, such as the impending scarcity of energy and resources, population overshoot, the fact that the Third World is no longer too keen to slave away for our luxury (that’s a major contributing factor in our lifestyles – the extra value we get from exploiting these poor fuckers on the other side of the world, whether at gunpoint or through monetary machinations).

The world is in an inflection point of history, one that has never happened before, and it’s a good time for people to muster up some real fucking creativity. The answer to the future sure won’t be found in the past.

Agree. But you don’t know the book. It is not about copying SU, but about ideas for strategies. Why could this be useful?

This guy is a comedian, his naivete makes me laugh. His phantasmagorical suggestions are on par with the idea I once heard that people should go off-grid by buying a generator and bumming off used cooking oil from the neighbors.

I wouldn’t be caught dead in an intentional community. Just the thought of it makes its prospective members get on my nerves already!

However, let me propose a real solution.

So, the CBDCs are coming, right? The banskters will roll out digital bucks, euros, or whatever currency you’re using in your neck of the woods, and the electronic dough will come with strings attached. You’ll only be allowed to buy a certain quantity of this shit, that shit, and the other shit, and only if you’re a good boy or a good girl. They’ll also have digital IDs to tie your purchases to yourself.

It seems that this opens a large opportunity for a secondary market, where people will buy thereto government-allotted amounts of crap and then trade it among themselves based on their actual preferences. For example, people who don’t like sweets but like meat will trade their allotment of sweets for meat. So on, so forth. An online platform for trading shit like this can be created, and if there are any IT motherfuckers around, they might as well start working on it. Mind you, this will have to be totally under the table so the government can’t sniff it out.

With any luck, thus created black market will eventually take over the technocratic bullshit and make it die by attrition.

I don’t know whether this qualifies as “making the world a better place”, but IMHO, that’s a rather lofty ambition. The vast majority of people are more or less fucked up, one way or another, unable to make themselves a better person, and aspiring to improve the world sounds pretty fake and pretentious.

Speaking more generally, since jail = illegal, you might give some thought to what’s “illegal”. If acquiring stuff of your choice with money you’ve honestly earned is illegal (unless you’re getting something truly nasty), than fuck the law. It’s them motherfuckers that are making the laws – like wear a mask, get fuckccinated, etc. The goal posts of what it means to be a good citizen have been moved too fucking far to an area where it means to be a slave.
