Marcus Aurelius said the soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts....
Life is never good or evil but a place for good and evil...
Where a man can live he can also live well..
Reject your sense of injury and the injury disappears...
Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too.
In The Soul of Man .... Oscar Wilde speaks of a libertarian socialist worldview and a critique of charity.
Wilde argues that, under capitalism, "the majority of people spoil their lives by an unhealthy and exaggerated altruism.
Caring people "seriously and very sentimentally set themselves to the task of remedying the evils that they see in poverty but their remedies do not cure the disease: they merely prolong it" because, as Wilde puts it, "the proper aim is to try and reconstruct society on such a basis that poverty will be impossible."
Wilde examined the political conditions necessary for full self-development and devotion to art, arguing, "Art is individualism, and individualism is a disturbing and disintegrating force. There lies its immense value. For what it seeks to disturb is monotony of type, slavery of custom, tyranny of habit, and the reduction of man to the level of a machine."
With the abolition of private property, then, we shall have true, beautiful, healthy Individualism. Nobody will waste his life in accumulating things, and the symbols for things. One will live. To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
So while my goal will house homeless,and help our brothers and sisters to acquire a dignity most have lost all hope of ever finding again, its so much more.
I plan to accept everyone, it doesn't matter whats in your pocket, or who you are . When you walk onto the gypsy ranch you are equal with every other. While I do have a plan to build a few bunk houses as a separation tactic while we are doing back ground checks , the results of the check will determine where on the ranch someone will be placed , or in extreme cases if they need to be restricted or isolated for their safety and others.
My core concept is to build a environment psychologically safe for everyone . To form a community structured around true equality and dignity for everyone.
Night time activities such as bon fires and drum circles.
To be a black sheep, scapegoat, myself I have seen much of our world and feel like the majority of us that the power is under the thumb of underserved mega monsters pushing conservation of theories and thoughts that no longer hold structure . The ideals society molds are light years away from the original thoughts as it came from our wisest minds of men .
Its no secret our world is officially reached epidemic proportions of confusion.
As many are blaming technology, if you have read my blog you know that I dont only disagree, but find that ridiculing on your own ignorance. Its the people using the technology.
What better answer to something that you dont understand could there be than anger and fear ?
So many people are talking about the times now and how horrible things have gotten but no one wants to do anything , well even if it takes my entire life to build this place, I will build it . If no one else wants to approach this problem thats just fine ... I want these people , I want your sick, tiered and hungry, i can never have to many people to in my heart.
