Marcia Everett commented on Zeitgeist: Addendum 2022-07-29 05:37:18 -0500 on July 29, 2022 at 05:37 AM (CDT)This movie goes through the fabrication of our economic system. The debt based money. The non government Federal reserve and more.
But Moving Forward is the best movie in the series for me. I hope they add that to the collection.

Marcia Everett commented on In Transition 1.0 2022-07-29 04:42:38 -0500 on July 29, 2022 at 04:42 AM (CDT)I’m glad to see there is community with the other transition organization. I do wish people would indicate that their goal is to eliminate money and reach RBE. They don’t have to tell the press, but we need to tell each other. Putting RBE in your description somewhere would help. As it is I am going through every location on the ic.org website asking each location.
Marcia Everett commented on Future By Design 2022-07-29 03:18:13 -0500 on July 29, 2022 at 03:18 AM (CDT)This video is a great introduction to what the whole concept of transitioning to Resource Based Economy is all about. It shows how Jacques really dreamed for the betterment of humanity. If you ask the right question: How can we do this for everybody? You get totally different answers than how can I make a profit?
Marcia Everett commented on 2012: Time For Change 2022-07-28 22:50:21 -0500 on July 28, 2022 at 10:50 PM (CDT)The film was enjoyable enough. I still have some concerns about consciousness claims. The audio on the YouTube version is low you’ll need speakers or headphones.
We have seen many videos about the problems I would like to see not just solutions but people putting those solutions in action BECAUSE they support RBE. I just have the sense that our numbers are small.

Would you consider adding to the definition - ,or having a higher power dictate rules of behavior that are unscientific, demonstrably false or beliefs of super natural or super human to solve our problems, or any beliefs unsubstantiated by science. I think this is needed (and ADULTISM seems a good word to cover all). This is needed because another -ism that divides us is religiosity. And that was not on the list, despite it being the first Zeitgeist movie. Currently there is a jump in the "consciousness" believers from practical practices such as meditation and calm/earthy environments to drugs can help you go to another dimension/talk to God's, aliens, or past dead. In addition the universe is alive because humans and every particle is alive so you can talk to the universe and hear what it is saying. Only if you extend the definitions IMHO.

The site has provided a lot that can help us begin our journey. I only hope to not be alone for most of it. I expect the site to let me know that I'm not alone.

They are in the transition too. Can I research what you are doing and why to see if I might be a good fit? I intend to learn NVC, go off grid a.m.a.p.(much) build a sharelibrary. If there is space.

I think we need to rescue as much soil and land as we can. We need to own it so that developers can not continue to tear down trees. We need to hold it in trust or under a non-profit until we can turn it over to an RBE government. People are already caravaning from their countries where food and resources are scarce. Some due to not allowing these people to earn money, and some from pollution. LET’S MOVE!! Fill your yard with a food forest. Then come back for phase two.
Marcia Everett published Include Non profit work into the definition of Transitional Community in Suggestion Box 2021-03-25 15:39:37 -0500 on March 25, 2021 at 03:39 PM (CDT)
I request that the term "TRANSITIONAL COMMUNITY" include people who gather together to work on projects to eliminate capitalism and detract from climate change. These people may perhaps create food forests through permaculture or grow food with hydroponics to give away, with the promise of volunteering in the future, or sell for very little thus undercutting the capitalist market. These people might also pool their tools inside a shed and create a "sharebrary" Where people can come and borrow a tool as they would a library book with the promise of volunteering in the future, or for a low membership monthly cost. Thereby undercutting the capitalist tool rental market. These people might also pool their money to buy land to save it from the destruction of real estate and commercial buildings and they would hold this land under a non profit until RBE was in practice at which time it could be released to the citizens of the world. Yes' this is a transitional community as well and I'm trying to empower it.
Marcia Everett commented on Would you be interested in being the HUB for all RBE ideas? 2021-02-08 05:52:54 -0600 on February 08, 2021 at 05:52 AM (CST)I want to add that this concept is another TYPE of TrANSITIONAL COMMUNITY. One that does not involve us “LIVING” in one place to conduct. Which I believe allows more people to contribute to its success. More than just those that “live” in an intentional community.

Why do we need your financial support? Services we offer like Your Action Plan are FREE for you, but not for us. Maintaining and improving our website not only costs a lot of time, but money as well. For example, there are hardware and software costs, telecommunication costs and more. This project is not backed by a company, so there is no fixed funding and every minute we spend on it is taken from our spare time. We rely on the goodwill and generosity of people like you to continue our work until our goal of a Global Egalitarian System is a reality. Your Contributions ensures that we remain fiercely independent and able to act in the best interest of humanity. It isn't free, or even cheap, to run The Transition, and the future is a long way away (depending on how active you and others like you are in getting involved and squashing your fears).
Your landlord probably won't barter for rent. We have cash expenses too.
The Transition runs on generosity, mutual respect, and collaborative efforts.
Can you help with a contribution of $5, $10, or $20?
A little goes a long way.
$5= a month of server time
$20=1 domain for a year
$50= Nationbuilder software for 1 month
$60= One Year of Leadership Training
Of course, you can donate any amount you regard appropriate. We hope you get an idea of some of the things we have to pay for in order to maintain this website and our organization, for you.
So to make sure we can keep this all up and running, we would really appreciate your support!
With your support, we will work to prevent homelessness, poverty and incite an energy revolution; to protect and preserve our planet; to keep genetically engineered ingredients out of your food by teaching you how to plant and grow your own. We plan to create a peaceful and nuclear-free future.
Did you know: You can help donate funds without spending anything extra? Yup, Amazon pays us a little commission of whatever you buy, whether it be a product recommended here or anything else, if you follow this Amazon link. This helps us pay for servers and other necessary expenses to keep us running. Help Us -- Buy at Amazon. Bookmark our Amazon reference link to drop us a little commission every time you buy from them.
Our site exists so that creative solution oriented people (like yourself) can help each other produce results for their grassroots efforts that make global impact . More work gets done in networks of shared respect and shared resources than in competitive isolation. By honoring agreements and working hard, Contributors of The Transition Inter-Community Network will build lasting ties in a community of enormous potential.
With your help we can create a brighter tomorrow we can all be proud of!

I only expect to be linked with people of like mind, who want to do something toward leaving capitalism and selfishness behind. People who want to live in harmony with their environment, and enjoy the things that nature has provided.
Marcia Everett commented on Set Your Intention- Step 1 2018-01-03 03:22:23 -0600 on January 03, 2018 at 03:22 AM (CST)I think that this system of capitalism devalues the human. We are only as good as the amount of money we make. This system is also perfectly fine with some humans not having what they need. I never quite figured out what I was good at. I didn’t really know how. I went to school. I passed tests. I liked things. I didn’t know which things would make me successful. Wouldn’t it be great if we could try different things without worrying that picking the wrong thing will leave you in abject poverty? Wouldn’t it be great if unlike the video clip you didn’t have to sell out on your dream because of “responsibility”? Wouldn’t it be great if no one was hungry, homeless and hollow? I want to create easy to follow steps toward this MONEYLESS SOCIETY. Learning NON VIOLENT COMMUNICATION, Learning physical skills such as carpentry and plumbing and electrical, and farming. I want to be in the BUD of tilling the soil.
