This project is closing... but... it will continue as abetterplace.io!

Be self sufficiŽnt, as in not having to bother people for your food and shelter and thus cutting out the middle men. Like a natural human. Good luck, you'll need it in this case.

What is natural about not bothering other people? we are naturally living in groups.

It's natural that somebody needs to farm far more then neccesary to create a sustainable livelyhood for his or herself?

@neut: it is very human to specialize, so one is farming for a community, while other people take care of the sick or baking bread or making a newspaper or do a website project about making the world a better place. What exactly is bad about this?

What made you conclude it is very human to specialize?

It is bad because it has caused us to leave the predatory cycle thus creating the imbalance all species of the earth face today.

it is good because it has caused us to develop and be able to defend ourselves against plagues (for example). We differ from other animals by being able to make tools and organize ourselves.
If we wouldn't have specialized, you wouldn't exist. At the very least not on this website. Be glad that the knowledge and effort of thousands and thousands of people have led you this far. There would be no internet, no computers, no electricity, no written language, no education.
Knowing that we have not always been aware of our responsability for earth, nature and other people doesn't make all this into something bad.

The plague arose in the dark ages with hygene far lower then found in nature. As can be seen in the bio industry or some squater houses now a days. Animals are able to make tools, and their ablility to organise is even more widespread in the animal kingdom. Think of a wolf/dolphin pack, ant hill. Our only specialisation I can think of regarding all other mamals is our brain to body ratio, we have specialised in becoming as cognative as possible. I have a good one for you, seeing that my late Polish grandpa was abducted by the Polish army to fight against the Germans I can say that without Hitler I would'nt be here.. I say that people unlike other species have learned to prefer adapting everything else but themselves to fit their needs instead of adapting onceself to fit the environments needs, as normal evolutionary adapting goes. I can therefor say that we have started devolving, which can be proved by a simple example, the ancient wonders of the world and our innability to reproduce or reconceptualise the producing of such structures. No living thing should have to worry about balance in nature cause it is normal not having to worry about it because nature usualy can keep itself going. Man as said has eluded the predatory cycle and most of the elements by molding the space around itself and has thus created a disturbance in the Force.. I really rather go back into paradise than climb a stupid tower..
