Intro: Hey, this is my first post on here! I’m a guy from northwest Europe that is 17 years old.
Today, people live in countries and imagine that is the only option, you either live in countries or nowhere. You are required to meet up at an educational institution called school 5 days a week for nearly two decades where you are taught what to believe and spoon fed the view of the elite. Then you wake up, work, sleep, wake up, work, sleep, wake up, work, sleep, wake up… for the rest of your life — without exploring what there is to explore or expressing the creativity within you and what you are.
What I’m about to say sounds unlikely: I want to create a civilization, I thought. Somewhere far away, from this corrupt world where you have no peace and are constantly bombarded with fear, control and greed. I believe this can be done, if enough people are engaged, determined and willing; we can build a civilization, an independent civilization, where you are free to express yourself and show your potential.
I would like to clarify: when I say civilization, I do not mean 70s hippie style tents in the woods. When I say civilization, I mean an actual city built with actual building material, very much like the picture shown in this link: http://www.wondermondo.com/Images/Asia/Syria/DeizEzZari/MariReconstr.jpg
Now, I haven’t written a single paper on this project, but I thought out certain things in my mind.
Utopias are really popular right now. It’s kind of the biproduct of when you force people to follow laws. Yes crime rate goes down but at the same time it kills creativity. There was a healthy couple in the states here. They built a house using a tree as the foundation support for the house and they were evicted from their home. The government tore it down making them homeless. In my country there are 50 states with 50 different laws and I could move to anyone and feel like I was in a different country. If you want a Utopia first find an area that is accepting of your ideas. From there you need to look at the geography of the area and get something that works for you. Do you want a lot of trees on your land? Do you want to be by a lake or water? Is it easy to get electricity and running water to your land? Is it hard to get to? Is it a government owned road or will you have to maintain the road? I’m looking in to buying land in the gainsville florida area right now. It’s a college campus area and they have all the things I need there. I’m becoming a personal fitness trainer, currently I’m an electrician. I plan tto build both a home and a buisness on my land. So I need to be in an area with people that are in to that. Hope that helps. If you ever need help on blueprint ideas or have any questions on cheep ways to get started just ask.
Hello Dude. I know the feeling, but you don’t have to work all your life. If you think about what you really need in life, you will probably realize that these things can be obtained with very little effort. Depending on your location and possibly future occupation. This will leave you time to go adventuring/exploring. Also moving to a remote place in the country, could perhaps bring you the tranquility you seem to miss. That’s at least what I’m planning, creating my own micro-civilization.
