If you are sick of watching the stock market and worrying about your financial future or you are worried about the economy crashing or whether or not you’re going to be homeless or just plain money issues and how you will survive the failure of capitalism we might be compatible, if you’re interested in a dome style or even an earth sheltered home.  I’m looking to purchase a small island because there are several available on the Internet also willing to purchase 50 to 100 acres somewhere in upstate New York or Washington State near the Olympic Peninsula.  But I am definitely open to suggestions regarding structures and location and I also have no problem relocating outside of the U.S.  The plan is to start really small community that is sustainable regardless of your income or background as long as we have the same goals.  I would love to be able to live without the necessary need for money or as little of it as possible.  Now is the perfect time to do it because most people can work remotely now and all we need is some one that will contribute by providing Internet Service, I will be contributing land and or housing.  Sure in the beginning we will need people of the future community to contribute whenever they can to get started but once were up and running we should be completely self-sufficient and have no need for cash.  We will probably need someone who well versed in tax law so we can apply for a homestead tax exemption.  But I would prefer the first members of the community group to be at least 50 plus years in age and be able to teach younger future members about Permaculture and living sustainably so we can leave the entire community to a younger group that will be able to survive whatever is coming whether it be climate change or another economic crash.


AirCrete dome homes 

Earth sheltered homes

Rain water harvesting


Homestead tax exemption 

Low maintenance farm animals

Ultimate goal:

To get started each individual will need Some type of work from home job to sustain them until were up and running.

We all split the cost of the land equally

We all help build homes for each other and split the cost equally I know some might opt for a canvas tent but we all must help build the platform for it.

Each individual will be responsible for a food source whether it be raising chickens or fishing or growing food

We all must be willing to adapt to wherever we decide to do this, whether it should be cold or tropical we’ll figure it out.

If you’re interested let me know and I will send links and info to get this thing started.  Don’t wait until you have exhausted all of your resources and end up living on the street.

Now is the time.

    Im so happy to see a like minded person, my husband and i are trying to create a commune as with roughly the same the same principles, except our goal is Alaska. It’s proving rather difficult finding the right people for it because so many people are afraid to try new things like this so they get trapped in the capitalist rutt. Best of luck to you and yours in your endeavors! People like us will succeed in helping others even if we may not be able to solve the problem, we sure are makinf it easier fo

      I’m interested but would like more information please

        Ask me anything you would like to know that is not already in the post.

      I don’t have a problem with Alaska and there are many places in Alaska with no property tax at all. And if I can get five G Internet I can keep working my current job. I don’t mind chipping in half as long as there’s enough acreage, perhaps we should talk further….
      I’ve also been doing some property searches and I found some really good possibilities AK so let me know if you’re interested in teaming up.

    Hello Gen,
    If you’re really sick of poverty you must know we can’t fix it for ourselves but we can fix it for the next generation. You know the Twentysomethings, because they are the ones that will be left behind to pay off the trillions of dollars in debt this country will be in after all the rich old geezers die off in about 15 to 20 years.
    I am sick of poverty as well, it sickens me to see it happen to indigenous people, people who did not ask for capitalism or money because they were doing just fine living off of what the earth can provide. First we came and destroyed a way of life that worked for thousands of years and then changed it to a way of life that is unsustainable. We need to get back to that old way of life, even if it’s just groups 10 to 20 scattered around the globe the human race will survive.
