Rob's job quest
- Hi Rob,
In response to your queery, I'd suggest that you focus rather on getting
yourself set up in as cooperative/low expense living situation that you can,
and then getting involved with whatever organizations related to the
'carfree' ethic/movement as you can find/as resonate with you, whether they
can pay you or not. Often, you can be more effective working part time in a
cafe or other public venue, where you get to meet lots of folks (who you can
then discuss ideas with), and then putting volunteer time into that what you
are most passionate about.
I believe that the long term implications of the carfree movement, as well
as the entire 'smart renovation/cooperative movement' is pointing in the
direction of a more integrated lifestyle, such that how one uses one's hours
is of prime importance, with economics becoming a far less important matter.
As we learn to cooperate as a society, when consensus-building replaces
patriarhy and hirearchy as our socio-political modus operandi, the carfree
model of urban planning/living will make perfect sense. To the extent that
those of us interested in seeing this happen are willing to push the
envelope with regard to lifestyle, stepping outside of the economic status
quo, our own example helps to illustrate for others what is possible, and
how to move in that direction.
