I'm hoping that some of you will take a look at the Harrisonburg school's
INTRANET initiative. This is the solution that we are looking for, when
combined with related cooperative initiatives (the Space Projects, found on
the same site, for example). These initiatives help illustrate how an
international cooperative/non-profit movement is possible and preferable to
what we have at present. They have the advantage of affirming everyone's
right to live either cooperatively or within the current paradigm. The key
is that over the long term, when we have the opportunity to choose to live
cooperatively or within the current private ownership/consumerist paradigm,
we will be personally responsible for the costs of our chosen lifestyles,
whereas at present, selfishness and environmental degredation is subsidized
mostly by the poor around the world.
I urge you to take the time to learn about these initiatives and the
paradigms that support them, and to go to your representatives, local
businesses, community groups, and advocate movement in this direction.
Any questions forwarded to me will be answered to the best of my ability.
Yours in cooperative, artistic anarchy,
