WARNING: May contain opinions
This Group has been created to allow us all to share what we have learned, would like to learn or contribute to us individually or as a community in lessening our dependence on money. This is the key concept. What do we need to get by and yet are constrained to acquire it through the expenditure of money? Utilities, Food and Domestic amenites and requisites.
We all may suspect or are already fully aware of how the institution of money has effectively in the words of Mark Boyle "..creates a kind of disconnection between us and our actions.."
Its only when we analyse this concept do we realise how money has come to dominate every facet of our existence via the seduction of deliberate and purposeful marketing to induce cyclic consumerism to the indenture placed upon us by debt clothed in the myth of personal aspiration and acquisition of material wealth.
This is not natural. This is not the way it should be. It is against the very ethos of what it is to be a human in a human community. We are an empathic species that have been polluted and indoctrinated from birth into a way of life and to take our place on the hamster wheel.
We can change this. Bit by bit. Day by day. Choose everyday that passes to learn something new to lessen your dependence on those that DEPEND on your dependence.
From now on. I aint no hamster, and this aint no wheel.
