Just a little note about getting people involve.

I ask a few people and my own son who is 16, this question: If you could have a free house, would you help someone else to build his free home too? And the answer was, hell yes!

So, maybe we can start by asking different questions. Telling people that a world without money can exist is like trowing the full bucket in their faces and that is too much to understand for most people. But, making them do different stuff and invite them to come see what is possible, then that open their minds to be more receptive to the idea that it is actually something very plausible.

Maybe we need better questions to get better results.

But it's not a new think, I'm from the mountain Zagros north iran, and there is no mortgage and stuff, friends and neighbours help you to build your house or your farm and you do the same for his work. For anything

They don't bother anyone there? Like here even the smallest places are not saved to do anything.

"good"
i believe that you are onto something so incredible intelligent. the questions are being asked with the answer that is not applicable. not sarcasm but maybe the real question of how can i help you and your family. so i will work on asking people to think...

Good, I know that my question is just one question in many others that can help people realizing that maybe there's other ways to do stuff. Contributions here is mostly call "voluntary help" but always apply to help a crisis of someone or something that do not have a real long term effect. All these people give their hours to feed people or money for food banks, but what if they would build a 4 seasons garden to feed all those people all the time? Just asking question here. Maybe I am completely beside the point.

I just met this guy this week who put 120 hours a week and half of these hours are to make small chocolate figurines to sell to raise money for one child and his mom who went to a hard time. It is a great gesture but it is again not even helping anyone since they were already OK. All that time and money could have help in so many ways to build substantial supports to many forever!

I hear often that we need to get organized like the cabal is, maybe this is one way to make thing move faster, using already installed structures to help locally and asking them to put their efforts in a more long term solutions.
