Are We Dreaming or Doing ?

Hi Folks,

Yes it's been a while since I wrote in my blog and  there are a few  reasons, (not that i feel the need to justify the absence of posts to anyone). The main reason being  I have been busy doing what I do interacting and working with people to help them, in the hope that my moneyless lifestyle hits home with someone.  Maybe that's all it will take, the right person in the right place at the right time that will change our world to a better one. In the words of John Lennon, "They say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one"

The above statement is what brought me to write this post. It would seem more and more people and groups talking about moneyless societies. To name a few, The Moneyless Party, The Venus Project and UBUNTU Liberation Movement. Though these are all well and good,online, are they just dreaming or are they doing anything on the ground?

I am ever hopeful that this trend continues and as I said earlier maybe this will spark interest in the right mind at the right place and time.  I'm not against people spreading awareness online, however, without real ground level action and doing nothing other than talk, are we going to get anywhere? I doubt it. 

I am now on the look out for real, on the ground solutions to the monster that is capitalism and would look to joining them. I could go on forever as a lone person doing what I'm doing as I do it now.  Though I feel now that I need to get together with "like minds" (I say that loosely as no ones mind is quite like your own) to start to take real ground level action. 

Over the next few months I'll be busy with a Boat restoration project, after that I'll continue as I am until I find people that are and willing to go the mile and are taking real action with real solutions. I'm not talking about those who are wishing to replace the current monetary system with another. Nor am I looking to those who wish to go back to barter. Barter is where money came from and as Einstein rightly stated "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them" so there would be no point to going back to a barter system, it wouldn't be fair and people would still suffer in this world because of it.

I don't have all the answers, I am just discovering the way and all I do know is if people were able and left to do what is truly in their hearts, not what the system has superimposed on them through media with the promises of a dream that is unatainable for most, then the world would become a much better place. 

Below are a few links to various organisations and groups should you wish to read more about moneyless society and how it could work. 

Please note, the views on the links are no necessarily reflective of  my own.  I have posted these links  to give a varied range of views on how a moneyless society could work.

The first two links are all about people who are really embracing a moneyless life.
