Farms of life

 

For you, our life rafts
You people who are reading this for the first time, you really have to listen, otherwise you too will fall into the hole.
We are hiring
We are recruiting activators. These are the people, women or men, who take charge of the creation of the community and the farm. {Youtube}

The search for land is an action that requires a united and voluntary community. This is the first major difficulty that must be overcome.

How are we going to live after the great upheaval?
If you’re on a farm, you’ll be living one way, and another way if you’re not in a survival structure, the ones I call zombies. And we can also look at how you will live if you are for example in an eco-villages or similar structures.
Why it's important to watch this. Because you have an imagination of what can happen after the great upheaval and it is perhaps this imagination that is preventing you from taking action.
If I tell you a farm, you think of the farm of your grandparents or the a little bumpy uncle. You can already see yourself going back two hundred years.
Every time I broach this subject with new interlocutors, they bring up security issues, they see a 1789-style revolution, but with otherwise powerful and devastating weapons. Of course, it is possible and it scares me, but above all it will not show that none of you will have had the courage, or the strength, or whatever, to embark on the creation of a structure, the farm, which now solves many of the problems cited by our protagonists and many of the problems that may arise.
We do not fix the problems, and there are many, in this civilization, we ignore them, we ignore those who are supposed to cause them, we ignore the structures, even though we assume they are working against us.
All the actions which, in your opinion, the conspirators for example, contribute to the destruction of the population, of civilization, are not the result of a supposed will but of an announced death of this civilization. She is going to die and everything, everywhere is going wrong, there is nothing more normal.
Of course, men, especially men elsewhere, still thumb their noses at the tax authorities and they enjoy it, the decisions that are taken by our rulers turn out to be completely messy, the poor who raise their voices are largely condemned, a dime a dozen, and the rich are dancing the streets as they embezzled millions, and you, you are going to ignore this, even if it is appalling, for your obsession is to become self-reliant in all aspects of your life. life in relation to this civilization.
Very quickly, everyone who cheats today will come and beg us for a piece of bread tomorrow.
And there, forgive me if I smile.
First of all, we are entering a time where life is going to be rough. Very difficult and if nearly 30,000 people have died prematurely from Covid, many more will certainly die of hunger in 2021 and especially from the consequences of hunger or bad food, or diseases caused by the weakening of the immune defenses for example, which would allow a mild flu to become very dangerous.
This period of slow collapse, which began more than ten years ago, will become extremely difficult for the most fragile and we will see many people today careless, falling suddenly into poverty, and many people who do not. are not poor, have significant difficulties to survive.
What I'm describing here is only the beginning of the 1929 crisis, and it's not at all realistic to describe what we think is reality, which will be much more dramatic than that.
So what to do?
I'm quite surprised to see that some mayors are doing everything possible to prohibit the construction of what could be a real lifeboat. It is as if they want to fuel conspiracy theses ...
Let us look at the people who are now falling into unemployment. In principle, many of them will receive the allowances paid by Pole-Emploi. But that's a 30-50% drop in income. When you pull the devil by the tail before that, things just don't work out.
Okay, if you're okay with it, you tell yourself they'll manage. Yeah sure, but I'm not sure it's right for you.
The poor will of course find help from the social services of the town halls which will give them some money to buy food and this is where the problem begins to arise.
I became interested in the food industry and in recent months, in a sector that I know physically well, eight out of ten companies have closed their doors. Do the two that remain make up for the eight that have closed? on this answer will depend what follows.
Because if the lack of money to buy food is a real problem, the lack of food to buy when you have money is even a bigger problem.
So this is where the farms of life provide a real answer, a real solution.

The farms of life are lifeboats, and much more than a canoe, which will allow all these people, those who are going to have difficulties, to surpass them, to learn to do and to be for the deadlines still much harsher than a worsened 1929 crisis, and to live afterwards, and that without disturbing anything of this civilization and all the gigantic projects that it is currently implementing.
Our solution is for all inhabitants of a country, whether they are city dwellers, suburbanites or country dwellers. Of course, everyone has specific conditions, city dwellers for example will be far from the farm and will be able to go there less often as long as it remains in the heart of the city, the country people will have farms far from each other, as for the suburbanites , they will suddenly see a lot of people joining them.
The farm takes the form of a hectare of land on which a set of people, I do not say a community, because many people think that they cannot live in a community, up to five hundred people in the long term, can build their own. way to live.
Among these people, there will be everyone, the homeless, the unemployed, workers in the process of impoverishment, executives well above all these problems, well maybe, pensioners rich or poor, and we will even accept our super rich but on condition that they work a little, because their money, we do not care. What we want now is to eat and eat well and tasty.
In this area, we will have to find water, and since all the water is heavily polluted, it will have to be treated on site, and without energy. There begins the learning, the real one.
We could buy reverse osmosis filters that turn polluted water into drinking water. But that's not what we're going to do. We are going to learn that nature has been doing this very well since long before man existed on earth. We're going to get that started.
For food, we are going to set up a henhouse, with a lot of hens and a few roosters. This will give us delicious eggs and even, after a few months, chickens. There are things to learn to do this.
To build all this, you need the goodwill of people who have time. Those who work must absolutely continue to work, and of course, this is a plea, not to make a revolution, not too many strikes. Civilization is fragile and if you heckle it too much it is likely to go by the wayside for a very minor incident.
Then you have to produce vegetables, but for that you have to prepare a little longer because you will not have any fertilizers, pesticides or fungicides to grow your seeds and not a lot of water. And seeds precisely, it will be necessary to involve the grandfathers gardeners who intelligently cultivate their gardens, that is to say those who produce their seeds themselves.
And we will have to wait for the right moment to sow and plant, but quickly, from the spring, with a little more help from this civilization which will provide us with salt for example, we should start watching the zombies, those who throw big projects or who play with finances, from far and high.
What is preventing you from doing that. Lots of things of course.
The law, which is not at all adapted to the preservation of human life. Human life which has very little value elsewhere.
For example on agricultural land, it is forbidden to put constructions. So we cannot install dry toilets. Our MPs recently passed a law that punishes € 1,500 in fines per day for the siting of a building. I imagine the farmers going to do their business, their buttocks in the open, in full view of everyone.
This will have to be weighed against the lives of 500 people. And there we can not get into endless discussions, official or not, about whether a law applies when it kills hundreds of people. I would tend to think that when the state cannot provide a decent life for its people, the state no longer exists. Or rather, we could take the place of the state. We don't want any power, we don't want anything from this civilization, we just want to live decently.
I'm not talking here about how to produce the vegetables, because really it's not that difficult, and there are a lot of things to do that are not related to food. It is necessary to study who produces the raw material for fabrics, shoes, saddlery, carts, medicines, etc.

It is necessary to define how, even if it is in the long term, after the collapse, the accommodation will be fitted out for the people who have to stay near the farm: dependent people, medical staff, surveillance staff, travelers, etc.
You should know that the current constructions, especially the modern ones, are a heresy to live in the coming climate, our accommodation will be much less comfortable than natural or artificial caves and we will have to find answers to these difficulties for many farmers.
We must transfer medical and other analysis laboratories, research laboratories, and adapt them to the lack of energy.
We must print, classify and index a mountain of scientific documentation housed in computers so that researchers can continue to work.
Our engineers will have to find ways to transform many machines into a system that operates without energy or at the limit with very little energy.
We will soon find that, you who thought you were saved by human genius, you were not that far from the truth, even if it did not take the form you hoped for.
Very quickly, it will be necessary to build an efficient medical structure, to implement a real prevention of diseases and accidents.
We need to implement a teaching structure that is much more integrated with nature, the natural environment, and trades. Science is an element of culture and scientists should no longer be hidden from the general public, nor should they hide, but be fully integrated into the farm, among the farmers.
Many cultural activities, now the preserve of ephemeral stars, will have to be enjoyed by as many people as possible. With a little effort, people can sing, paint, sculpt, play music or a play, recite a poem, and generally enchant other members of the farm and sometimes of several farms together. The stars will be more local than now, but they will exist and develop, in small regions, tastes which will gradually constitute the distinctive mark, the cultural marks, of each zone of influence.
Little by little I will go into the details of the farm. I know you are impatient. But there is no mystery, just wise choices, wills, love for children, tenderness for the elderly, caring for the disabled, passion for life . Others, those who have none of this, you can sleep soundly.
See you in two days
