Enough Free Stuff How? Institutes and the RBE

3 Nov

How could things be done to scale, and alternative?

The Institute system is designed to make anything freely available. This is the mechanism underlying the free RBE system. So, amazingly, people have developed all the other components of how the way would work – you know, over the last years. This can be done as a retrofit or a new city, but I ask for the creative commons, attribution non-commercial sharealike with the free world institutes system.

The Base Institute is the only one that would charge, in order to cash out the people. This is the mechanism all the other Institutes get, in order to convert upstream producers. Unless a different greenhouse, etc, was made, I presume a single or few monoculture farmers, whereby even a small portion of their crop in exchange for no utilities is a large amount for the fledgling Institutes to process.

The Institute worker wakes up in the place, a new classless individual whose role is to make x freely available. The Institute worker would live in the environment, ideally, regardless all their needs are provided for. One of the first we have here is the bodega institute, to fit the characteristics of the urban area around us. One cow-share upstream might include making a lot of cheeses, milk, creams, whipped creams, ice cream, butter, and picking it up from the spot which is team level at this point. Ideas are encouraged by task, and expertise and creativity is achieved including being able to soon meet requests as the Base Institute continues to free people; the farmer has the Base inventions, so is included in paradigm and gets anything that’s made.

The Institute worker gets everything provided for, and for this class of individual will probably be relieved to finally be utilized to the extent of his/her physical and mental capacity, ability and creativity, and morale of balance. As well as not in service of that terrible money. In this society, work is optional, but if you’re not doing it you’re not living in that Institute skyscraper.
A card-holder, as well, gets anything made or needed provided for. These are like-minded members of the community, who want everything free stuff at the bodegas or whatever. So long as they don’t have rent, they have the house utilities and the card and get everything will be given them. They complain though, and well they might consider ask, helping out to make a way, meet and outreach, and start the Institute branch doing that. There would be many institutes in a building area, trainings and tools provided a la https://ubuntuusa.com/about-us, and once built self-sufficient by Institutes and resources.

More suggestions in how to get into it is on this blog and the MoLeSo blog. Those who don’t get out of money are not going to be all gung-ho illuminati, they going to be left footing a large bill of the illuminati oil barons, war machine financers, home mortgage lenders, federal reserve, and banks. America at this time can be pretty upset with the large debt and probably looking to transition their area out. That Sun beat down every day, and meanwhile the moneyless option may be coming in! This is the outcome of a lot of bad decisions, the outcome of capitalism, and furthermore is built in to economics, the architecture of the system itself. Based on greed and selfishness, materialism and disregard for neighbors; its no wonder that we would destroy large amounts of our natural treasure for something shiny. The distribution that has arrived a small % of people getting most, and large populations on crumbs a day. A redistribution where its needed gets the Institutes going, and the free everything work-if-you-want system is behind it. Hope you like it. Ed “Che” Miller

The bombs bursting in Air

4 Jul

I just drove home through the country of New Russia Township, greeted by wonderful explosions of light and color. The giant flowering trees of cherry, apple, pomegranate, blueberry.. This, is my Fourth of July Post.

Seeing America all go out for the fireworks is a reminder that our country is still working– the trucks are still moving, the families are still having dinner conversations, the cars still droll to work each morning. The backyard barbecue is something that’s so American, to see them happening means that life for many still goes on.

If and when the higher oil prices come, many will find that they still have this life, and they still have what matters (especially if you haven’t divorced your spouse..) AND furthermore, that the adaptations they make for the recession will be mostly a welcome change. It’s not the money that matters — just basic expenses — and if we can provide food then we remain a proud, independent nation. Let’s show the world that we can do more than consume oil and bully internationally; if/when the time comes, let’s be followers for a while. Proudly.

America is a great country. It’s the rural folks and the non-rural folks, the countryside and city gardens and parks, the trees land and air that make is so. We have abundant resources to make use of once we grow in ideas that do not require fossil resources. Despite what will happen to some farmers, our food system will be okay.

Politically, I have a great hope that Barack Obama’s last year in office will be a good one. There are many ideas on this very blog that can make it so if he listens. I would happily advise the president on Economic and Environmental Policy.. in fact it is what I got a degree on. If you’re any closer to the White House than I am as a blogger and small farmer, pass it on!

I am happy to be in America, with or without money, and hoping to stay here for a while. Happy fourth of July, for it’s a good year to be in the USA.

IFAD’s Cape Town meeting – presenting the Rural Poverty Report 2011

IFAD’s Cape Town meeting – presenting the Rural Poverty Report 2011

Biogas makes people not poor! For lights and cooking. These cost $260 to make, the Chinese government pays half.. See biodigestors in action in China.. a new socialist village: environmentally sustainable, socially harmonious. Anything done by small farmers in China makes a huge impact overall.. Over 8 million animals accounted for in that rural sector of the world. The scope of it blows my mind. There are fantastic testimonials and a good name behind it, IFAD (http://www.ifad.org/) OECD development pages. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCRps9Jnwbk #energy @OECDlive

…as long as fiscal tightening is recommended unemployment will hardly stop. The consumerism is sloppy if we don’t back our currency (US$) with real production. Instead of encouraging fiscal tightening, developed countries should thus encourage new routes to develop production markets. Vegetables, for one. Vegetables ship well at 1 and 1/8 bushel crates, can be made plentifully here in the United States, and are in global demand. Organic vegetables are another step that many farmers may want to take that ensures them a local market. Small industry, for another. Many of the parts that support small agriculture are freely available laying around the ruins of a former industrial tower.. Factories are now scrap-yards ready to make a new Economy. The industrial park, and JVS and small workshops, should not be left out of our #economic solution.

Small agriculture is doing much better this year in the United States than large monoculture farms. A wet Spring has most farmers behind already. The price of corn internationally is shown in a chart below:

Please consider what a dependence on cheap corn will mean if corn does badly this year, for the whole world we export grain to. The United States for it’s irresponsibility has left the world open to more food insecurity, even without the oil factor, from a bad season in Northern Ohio and the Central states. #Midwest, #Corn, #Sustainable. Meanwhile, at the organic farm we have 36 crops already and are busy every day. Most monoculture farms are big fields and nothing is planted yet. I find comfort knowing that my job every day provides food for Northern Ohio’s good and neediest families to eat a fresh variety of foods at a dependable price. #agchat

A Systems Perspective 3: Nature and Econ

26 Mar

Post! Executive Outline:

Economics as a guide to policy|discipline|business|development typically undervalues Marginal Cost.
1. Resources *Natural capital to make manufactured stuff*
2. Oil is artificially low
3. Other environmental inputs= services
4. The commons

An increase in Marginal Cost would universally better off society.
1. Reduce | Reuse | Conserve –> Lessen material dependence
2. Reduce Energy/person –> Secure our country from Middle East
3. Focus on efficiency –> Reduce waste which hurts services
4. Produce less corn.

Finally, a policy solution without silly cap-and-trade or clean energy, which generates revenues by being harsher on unsustainable businesses.Increase the marginal cost of resources, to decrease their use. Read on, dear reader. But be prepared to comment if you finish it all.
