Because with the continued hollowing out of the nation state, resilient communities will –
- Shield us from increasingly frequent shocks and breakdowns of an out of control global system.
- Protect us from predatory and parasitical non-state actors — from globe spanning banks/corporations to local/transnational militias/gangs.
- Provide us with a path that will allow us to thrive — economically, socially, individually, and spiritually.
But we can’t do it alone, or even in small groups. Too many predators out there, whether they be bankster or criminal (I think there”s still a difference.)
The dominant solution to all of these pitfalls, dangers, and threats is to team up. Create a virtual tribe that helps communities become resilient — by financing, protecting, and accelerating them.
That’s what John Robb proposes. He plans to self-finance the building blocks for these new software platforms. He invites people to participate. Jump on in.
