@blankey, Your idea is valid, but I think it’s important to give other systems a chance and not doom them to failure from the onset. Because if there is a revolution there will have to be another system to replace the current system. It really is impossible I think to completely localize all production for all of humanity in a short period of time. It would take a planned consorted effort to integrate the necessary technology into every city, town, and commune. Factories for heavy machinery, tractors, solar panels, water heater, stoves, refrigerators and other necessary technology will have to be produced in the traditional way until an alternative industrial paradigm can be planned and executed. You have to be realistic too, the majority of people don’t have the ability, or resources to fully and truly go off the grid. They will be reliant on the current productive forces after the revolution, so an alternative grid or organizational economic system is imperative. So we really shouldn’t say that something else isn’t possible, because for the revolution it kind of does need to be possible. And no offense but we shouldn’t be encouraging people to do what we think is the solution or what we think is possible, we should encourage them to do everything, get off the grid, organize politically against the current paradigm, create community councils to organize cooperative efforts, everything and anything conceivable to actually make a revolution in context of the reality of the capabilities of mankind. The revolution isn’t even the most important part, the most important part is creating a sustainable world where everyone’s need are met, and everyone has the opportunity to advance spiritually, mentally, physically, and intellectually, and be able to follow their loves and interests.
