Guys...I need help.

Okay...so I've had something on my mind for a long time now. I can't stop thinking about it. I've talked with almost every person I've spoken to in the past couple days. Only because I feel kind of like its urgent now. Okay...so as everyone knows already...we're destroying the earth, our home, our provider, our mother. If we don't make a change very soon, they'll be no us. Anyway, with that out of the way. I have to rant about this...Before all "this" meaning society today, we had everything that we needed...everything. We all had food, water, shelter, clothing, every single thing we needed. I feel like everything I do every single thing I do almost every day is pointless...a step in the wrong direction. We take so very much more than we need and give nothing in return. Only piling trash onto the earth. Before all this, every single thing you used gave back to earth...every single thing. I mean everything. Then I feel like somehow someone realized, oh wow, that piece of gold, or silver, or something shiny, is really pretty it means a lot to me...or its WORTH this much to me. Keep in mind, this thing is useless...you can't eat it, you can't drink it, you really can't even really use it... it's useless. Then everyone sees this thing...and so somewhere an offer is made for something useful in exchange for the useless thing. And to me it feels like that was where we messed up. We messed up bad. I mean we work for money every day...when in reality, true reality, we don't even need it. We could be provided for, in full, for the rest of forever honestly. If we just looked at the ground, and sky, or felt the wind, heard the whispers around us, notice the color fading, and realize wait...I could have everything I really need...but I'm killing it. We were never meant to be this. We were never supposed to think of ourselves as superior, we aren't superior. The earth isn't in our control. We never needed a government, or economy, or a leader, or a system, or today's society. We would have everything we needed...no more poverty, no more wars, no more system, no more pollution, no more insanity...no more any current problem in todays society. Anyway guys, I need some guidance, some help, some way of dealing with these thoughts and feelings. Because I can not stop thinking about it. It's constantly on mind in some form. I don't know what to do. I know someone out there feels the same way. I tried to google it, I've tried every modern form of connecting minds basically. But I think if anyone would know something, or be able to add to, or anything about this it would be you beautiful people. I've almost got hope that this could actually happen someday, just because of your attitude, and understanding, and love for all things natural. I love each and every one of you. I know I don't say a lot...but I do listen. Sorry for the rant...I had to get it out. Also I don't know if this is in the right category. I don't really know where to post it.

Thanks so much for you're reply. That's really awesome actually, but in America I don't see anything like that existing...we're the heart of this problem. I feel like farming isn't enough though. I feel like we should be trying to get the majority to feel this. I don't even understand how they don't. We'll be gone sooner than we think if we don't. I know I sound crazy...but I feel it.

P.S. What is a crust punk?...i had to ask.

The sad thing is to change the system you would need the majority on this planet to feel the same way, but most people don't and they enjoy living in the system as it is because its all they know and they are addicted to money and worldly possessions.

The best way is for people to get their own land and farm, but even that is not as easy it used to be a few years ago with governments telling you what you can grow and how much water you can have on your land etc, at-least that's how it is in allot of countries nowadays.

We never needed all that shit, i know. No human being owns any part of this planet or the plants and animals on here.

Id say look into farming, just farm for yourself.
In Sweden u get communities (they usually consist of crust punks), anyway they build their own houses, greenhouses, put up water reservoirs, grow their own vegetables and fruit, etc. They are very neat and organized as well and usually no one in the community relies on money, they look after one another.


Maybe you can find something similar were u live.

Always think straight.

All the best.

and if ppl dont wake up and start taking better care

You're absolutely right. That's what I'll do too. We all need to.

Also, that's kind of cool...I had no clue such a thing existed. Thank you.

Again thank you so much for your reply.

Talking to people about how stupid the system is does make a difference tho, just some people are more stupid and they don't realize it.

Crust punk is just a music genre.

its all for animal rights, equality, anarchy, going green, living naturally, going against the system, anti capitalism, anti militarism.

I've always felt like this. I too have a little family of my own, although I am not legally married, I do consider my partner to be my husband and we are expecting a little girl very soon, I hate to think of her growing up in this society and thinking all of its ok, I often think about how I can set her on the right path and mindset for the earth with everything that's going on in the world around her, its going to be a struggle. I often dream of living off the earth with other folks like me and I'm always trying to educate people about how we are destroying the earth by buying into society, I usually just get called a stupid tree hugger hippie though=\ it doesn't stop me though, people who think like that are more of the problem than anyone. I've looked into communal living and I believe that's the way to go, but any commune I've found is just plain corrupt. I'd love to start one with all the right intentions and make it happen and create a haven for people like us where as a group we can try to educate society around us.

Man...this is it!!!!! We need to spread this message and this is the means! We just need to get things going faster...we're destroying so much faster than helping. This is really bothering me...I just need to know what can we do to help...I mean truly really help.
