So what is The Freeconomy Community about?

Dandelion Salad

-It’s about making the transition from a money-based communityless society to a community-based moneyless society.

-It’s about helping others and providing an opportunity for others to help you.

-It’s about sharing the skills you have learnt through your life and learning those you haven’t.

-It’s about sharing your tools so you all can have access to all the tools under the sun without it costing the earth.

-It’s about using any free space you have to either benefit positive, ethical and local projects, or to enable volunteers to keep doing their amazing work for free.

-It’s about sharing the land you don’t need in order to facilitate a local food community.

-It’s about freeconnecting neighbours.

-It’s about learning to help each other again.

-It’s about getting ready for a post peak oil world.

-It’s about making dinner for a friend who was yesterday a stranger.

-It’s about keeping money out of the equation.

-It’s about communicating face-to-face and phasing out technological communication.

-It’s about putting the soul back into society.

-It’s about helping each other not for profit, but just for the love-ofit.

What is a Freeconomy?

A Freeconomy is a moneyless society in which no money changes and there is no duality between giving and receiving; here they are seen as the two sides of the same non-monetary coin.

Freeconomy is a manifestation of trust, kindness, community and love. Money and credit are a manifestation of fear, insecurity and greed. Freeconomy is the common denominator to all of its solutions; Money and credit are the common denominators of all the world’s ills.

Right now freeconomies are the minority. This is unimportant. Soon they will be the overwhelming majority. Each one of us is a seed. The regenerative power of one seed cannot be underestimated. A forest can grow from the germination of a single seed, and similarly one simple act of generosity can give life to an infinite number of others.

  5. Thank you, Lo! Inspiring.
    In 2000, I had a near death experience, then another in 2002. Since then I’ve been actively seeking to just opt out of this sick life-sucking system we are currently living in. My employer gave me a jump-start when they fired me for being sick in such a way I could not even take them to court, phased out my position.
    Since then I’ve not held a regular job, yet I always have work. I might not always have money but I have everything I really need. I have gotten to travel, live in a mansion, eat for free, and various other important things I need but it isn’t easy! And most people I know think I should just go get a regular job, so I have little support. So this post was really inspiring and affirming for me on a deep personal level. Thanks!

  6. Thanks for turning me on to this! I am signing up right now. One can never have too many barter and gifting community affiliations!

    Found you through one of your Myspace bulletins. *grin*
