Oh no... my brain has snapped from the heat!
Okay, here we go. This is how i want to live.
"from each according to his ability
to each according to his needs"
Or something to that effect, its been a long time since I was in year 12, but I'm pretty sure thats the basis of communism.
Not quite sure how such a beautiful concept went so horribly wrong!!!
So! lets get it going again! I'm borderline serious. Right now I live in an apartment, in the city, I dont know my neighbours but they live close enough that I can hear them talking at night, I contribute nothing to this world, I baby sit peoples children so they can work out with a personal trainer - not all that satisfying, though I do love holding all the new babies - my partner sells mobile phones to people who already have mobile phones and then also sells with internet data for their phones knowing full well they'll never use it... hmmm... not all that meaningful to society as a whole.
I can raise chickens. I have. I loved it. I grew up with chickens. I can get a dozen chickens, someone else can have a vegie patch, we'll all get solar energy installed, and rain water tanks, I'll trade you eggs and chicken poo for vegies and waste vegitation... someone who ISNT me can be in charge of meat.... because.... I cant do it.... I couldn't eat something I've met.
And also I can take care of other peoples children on my mini chicken farm, so those who want to go into larger towns/cities to work so as a community we can still afford to buy things like clothes and technology, because hey, I dont want to totally revert to the agricultural age!
Anyhoo... who's with me on this wonderful fantasy that probably will never happen because hell will freeze over before DP leaves sydney.
