I've had it - oh, like for ever.
But considering what's happening to our planet it's become ever more urgent to find different and more sustainable ways to live.
So this is my dream.
There's this large bunch of diverse people.
We have this plot of land in a beautiful location.
On this land, we have an allotment where we grow all our own veg.
We have solar and wind power and generate all our own energy.
We each have our own home that we have built ourselves.
Though there is a degree of collectivity, we have autonomy in our own homes and over our own lives.
We compost, recycle and reuse.
Between us all we have the skills to build, garden, plumb etc.
Everybody will have their own skills or resources to contribute.
Some may bring more £££ - others will work harder.
(From each according to their means.)
Some may need or choose to have jobs outside the community.
Others will be able to work from home (me!) or on the land (me again).
Inevitably there will be some disagreements.
But we'll work them out.
Because we'll be a real community based on altruistic principles and mutual support.
Some people might think it sounds like a nightmare.
Others might say it could never work.
But I think it's a lovely dream.
Anyone share my dream?
