A key to sustainability
Access to shelter is a fundamental human right that has been taken
form a large percentage of the population. In this modern world,
human rights are written into public charters, yet the corporatism
of local and national governments has nullified these rights.
Cooperative housing like any other protest must be done peaceably
within the context of local laws as by any other means, the
adventure will fail. One system that worked was for some of the
Vietnamese escaping the Vietnam war. They landed on Australian
beaches and were taken in as refugees, the Australian government
gave them money, food and shelter. The people pooled their money and
bought a house, several families moved in and in a very short time,
they’d paid off that house and another was purchased. Such
collective thinking enabled the community to own a substantial
amount of property in a very short time and it could be done
elsewhere in an city.
Is to overcome the fact tat unfortunately most of us are damaged in
some way by our corrupt civilisation and are severely challenged to
take on such a project. Many cooperative projects to own land have
been successful, but most have failed due to peoples inability to
cooperate and a divergence of ideology.
House prices combined with the steady devaluation of the currency is
making home ownership increasingly difficult and for some the price
of a home is set at over a lifetime of earnings. Cooperative
adventures are the only option, as otherwise one must face a
lifetime of renting or even a home on the street.
First you must enlighten yourself and find a group of similarly
enlightened others. You must realise that a dozen dysfunctional
people living in a small house is going to cause friction as under
the age of 50, personalities remain volatile, yet begin you must.
The first sensible option once like minded individuals have been
found is to form a company or a trust that has legal worth in your
community. The members then acquire shares to the value of their
contributions. Should the partnership fail, then the members walk
away with the value of their shares when the property is sold, or
they remain as shareholders and the property is leased out. Its a
win win situation provided the finances work out.
Individuality and freedom
This is a myth, there is no freedom. We are all born to toil for
someone else pleasure, or a few may become entrepreneurs and earn
the reward of others efforts. Individuality is encouraged, it makes
us easier to control, to overcome this we must learn to set aside
our differences and focus on our common appreciation.
