A New World is Coming
An Invitation to Participate
Rather than making employees pay for their daily bread, we allow them to grow, raise, and make it in order to give an example of how social and economic life could be… if we ditched the mythos of capitalism. In this pursuit we seek to reject consumer and material accumulation culture, the idea that we must “only concern ourselves with our own well being, screw everyone else”. We believe that life is not meant to be lived in the cracks of time between work, if we can even afford it. Life is not distractions, nor is it constant bliss, it is lived, and slips through our fingers each moment. It needs to be lived that way. It should not be lived worrying about it you need to go to the doctor, or if that visit will bankrupt you. The usury, profit, and senseless exploitation of this system needs to end. We seek to offer up a new social and economic order. Beyond inequity, inequality, and want. Our earth can support 4 times the number of humans presently on it, if equality, and human resiliency were the goal. Instead half of our food goes in the trash and over 54% of our time, effort, and creativity goes into selling things and helping people buy things. Let me phrase it another way: is your job helping humanity survive and evolve? What if it didn’t exist? Would life go on?
