We are only proposing the foundational ethics and goal this cooperative community would build upon, be united about. All the rest, the community material and cultural manifestation in all its varied details will be up to the community members to decide. The ethics and goals could be altered or added to, but only consensually.|
1) No creating gain without personally providing service or creating products, no usury
2) Procreation at stable levels
3) Practice organic agriculture and farming, eat whole foods
4) Support no organized warfare
Even if these ethics could be practiced in a number of different ways (as in individually), we feel the best, easiest, quickest and perhaps only effective way would be to live in large, cooperative, mostly self sufficient communities with close ties to each other and the surrounding natural environment upon which we all ultimately depend.
To live in a way that largely eliminates the need for money and the ownership of property; and accomplishes this with 4 hours or less of simple labor per person per day.
We believe this could realistically be accomplished through a combination of past traditional methods as well as modern technology, growing and producing our food together, eating together (in one place), being largely self sufficient in as many ways as practical, living more simply and with numbers approaching 300 people on about 500 acres of land.
If you believe these social and ecological ethics are correct and the goal worthwhile please join us and help us manifest this cooperative community as an example of how humanity can indeed live happily, healthfully, peacefully and in a sustainable way.
Time is of the essence. This project urgently needs to start now! Humanity desperately needs examples that work and to emulate. The longer we wait the longer the suffering will continue and the greater the chance for some sort of catastrophic tragedy. If you want to help please call us today.

"The equal right of all men to the use of land is as clear as their equal right to breathe the air - it is a right proclaimed by the fact of their existence. For we cannot suppose that some men have a right to be in this world, and others no right."|
