Hacking at the Roots.    

This is a collection of essays and ideas from members of the Free Society Project. Each post will probably be signed by the author.

'There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.' - Henry David Thoreau




Join us for a chat in #fsp at irc.freenode.net!

Come help us write a manifesto to the new mankind. We would like to ask the global communities to help us fill out these ideas into an "official" document, the Articles Of Societal Foundation
The forums also host a place to talk about necessities for setting up and sustaining small communities, a step vital to forming a new world.

 “No money? Without money, I can’t buy anything!”
category picture30 Apr 2008 @ 07:44
The idea is audacious, laughable, even blasphemous in today’s globalized, branded and capitalized culture; in a strange sense, however, we are in a moneyless society today.  More >

 Survival
category picture10 Apr 2008 @ 13:52
Last night I was going for a walk in an inner city. I immediately noticed my senses were heightened, and that my "intelligence" could not stop focusing on it, even though it tried.

That really struck me. First my rational brain analyzes and senses the potential danger just from the general environment. Then the body responds with increased blood flow, and adrenaline to heighten the senses. I really thought about how the natural response of my body was a good thing, and that of course the best idea was to keep that just under the surface, just in case. However, I also noticed that I tried to reason away the potential danger for a few seconds. To me that feels the way of panic and not being in control of yourself, which is just silly when you think about it.

So then, after this minor personal event was over, I started really thinking about survival. Survival is so fundamental, so intrinsic into who we are. Our modern world masks and covers the illusion that all systems are about survival.  More >

 Freedom and Self-Selection
category picture8 Apr 2008 @ 18:19
The largest facet of freedom is choice. With every action, whether the action is intended or unintended, it is the underlying choice that defines freedom within a society. A choice that is epitome to the individual, is that of location.  More >

 General Information about FSP
category picture6 Apr 2008 @ 07:12
We are very happy to have found a home where we can openly discuss our work and who we are. Our hope is that we can end up working with many many groups and slowly build an economic center that can support those in our current society that find their environment not sufficient to true human happiness.

We will be explaining more of our core ideas shortly, and incrementally. Two of the first "projects" that we would like to share with the general community will be announced shortly. Articles of Societal Foundation and a series of papers dealing with a historical perspective of mankind and what it means for future societal development.

We believe a good society should be designed with the best structures to facilitate human harmony, personal growth, individual accomplishment, and the "divinity" of the self.

It is time as a human race, to take the training wheels off. No longer do we need oppressive dogmas regarding Kings, Gods, Governments or Corporate authoritarianism. The Articles of Societal Foundation will be a collective attempt to define what such a society values, and how it is structured, and making an announcement of what it means to be a human being.

Again, we do not come here with "the only answer". We have developed a skeletal structure for both how/why a good society functions and how to develop this system NOW, within our current political/legal framework. We need as much help as the communities can give.

Thanks for listening, and it is good to be here

 Misconceptions by Capitalists
category picture5 Apr 2008 @ 10:58
It is a common misconception that a society under voluntary labor and without currency would fail due to lower productivity when compared to other models such as Capitalism, and as a result would have a lower quality of life. When comparing such a society to a Capitalist society, the definition of productivity is entirely different. This misconception is also based off the perspective that the high productivity of Capitalism is superior.  More >

 Welcome to the ratrace.
category picture3 Apr 2008 @ 20:25
I'm 17 now, just about to take my A-levels. I do well, I get into the university I want, get a degree, get a job. Welcome to the rest of my life.
I was at a party recently. Kids with dyed hair and catchy tshirt slogans. What are they going to be doing in 10 years? Most of them, I think, will be sat at a desk, thinking back to those good times, wondering where everything changed. And you say 'Well they have the choice to do something different.'  More >


 Something to value
category picture3 Apr 2008 @ 19:41
“Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me”

Often seen as a symbol of mere juvenile resistance, this attitude is actually a positive attribute of humanity, and can teach us how to better live and solve the issues that plague our societies. The potency of this statement comes from the less obvious idea of empowerment through resistance. The ability to resist implies YOU have the power. This is exactly as it should be. That very resistance is the spirit of mankind that refuses to stay chained to its own collective ignorance and to demand a better way. To be free from the oppression of others, is part of what has made mankind great. It is also exactly opposite of the root structure of all systems (government, religion, corporation) as we know them today.  More >
