asteram: I think these are all great guidelines. The point is the the golden rule -- i.e. he who has the gold makes the rules. In other words, the mini-Hitler's are normally the one who has greater...

Re: Community Project

I think the current system will be EXTREMELY hard to keep together for long. I'm not normally a betting-type person, but I'd be willing to wager that our entire currency will be going belly up in the...

Re: Community Project

FYI: I noticed Miriam Delicado just posted to another topic on Avalon. I sent her a PM to see if she will post here and share her experiences in working with some of the native Americans. I'm curious...

Re: Community Project

Shiftmonkey: I think part of the solution is going to involve working with the native tribes, but I'm not sure how. I agree they could use some skills from the outside.

Re: Community Project

Another thing is that if this type of a model was set up, would there be any need for any type of taxes? IMO, all government does is take resources (money) from one group of people and give it to...

Kre8ive Lady: I've seen this system before with Ithaca Hours (http://www.ithacahours.com/). Correct me if I'm wrong, but these look almost the same to me.
