41 acres west of Mossbank, SK

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ed @ 1:33 am

This looks interesting, but it costs about twice what I can afford on my own ($44,900 CAD/$42,700 US). 41 acres 8 miles west of Mossbank, Saskatchewan (south of Old Wives Lake, south of Moose Jaw):

The other debate

The other four presidential candidates had a debate, and Larry King was the moderator, but none of the major media would carry it. This is what democracy looks like:

Here is a link to an anarcho-pacifist community that is just getting off the ground in south central British Columbia.

I’ve been in discussions with them but they are a little vague on details, such as how the community will make decisions, how the land will be owned, and what the vision is for the community. As with many anarchist projects, it appears things are done on an informal, interpersonal, spoken-agreement level, which I’m a little uncomfortable with…. But I know the organizer, and he seems to be a very ethical and sincere person.

Why the U.S. is not a good location

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ed @ 12:32 pm

Green Party presidential and vice presidential candidates Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala were arrested after trying to attend the second U.S. presidential debate at Hofstra University. Then they were held handcuffed to chairs with tight plastic wrist restraints for 8 hours, at a secret location, and not allowed to make any phone calls.

Even scarier, this is not being covered by the major media. If these were Russian or Chinese pro-democracy activists, you can bet this would be headline news.

This is a video inspired by the book by Dr. Seuss, as performed by participants in the 2011 Burning Man festival. Enjoy and be inspired!

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the “waiting place” – waiting for people to show up who share my vision for this project….. The alternative is the “if you build it, they will come” approach, which is usually not recommended for starting intentional communities. If there isn’t a group of people who share a vision, why do it?
