Sustainable development is moving from an idea to an absolute necessity in the face of growing problems with the financial crisis, large scale environmental problems and the growing consciousness for the need of great social change
With factors such as climate change, and the unpredictable rumblings of the economy and housing challenges of the USA, there seems to be a wonderfully positive and exciting revolution/movement happening in the United States and in other places of the world: the Tiny House revolution
It seems that many more thousands are catching on to what Henry David Thoreau had in mind over 150 years ago in his classic ‘Walden’; that happiness can be found with minimal posessions, that simple living and closeness to nature can offer true satisfaction.
I feel pretty certain that the American/Australian/Western dream of a big house will rapidly crumble away in 2011, as political upheavals, further extremes in weather and wide host of other factors offer the tiny house as a real and tangible lifesaver for many. So many have been opting for this ‘downsizing’ in living space due to financial reasons, but have found an abundance of benefits and a literal ‘upsizing’ of their lifestyles. The advantages they state are abundant, including reducing their consumption and energy usage to a fraction of normal, huge savings in paying for ‘big’ mortgages and debt on ‘big’ houses, and escaping the consumerist trap of the typical ‘rat race’ lifestyle.
CNN reports that these houses can cost on average from $15,000-$40,000, but my own experiences have shown that its realistic to get into your own ‘tiny-house’ for under $10,0000, and I have been creating a comfortable eco-campervan living space with a budget so far of $7,000. Whether its a camper, transportable or caravan/motorhome, why wait til you are 65 to enjoy the retirement lifestyle, why not enjoy your youth now? It does not have to be tiny either, for a little bit more money or effort a roomy and comfortable eco-lifestyle can be created, for example with a truck frame or bus converted into a living space
I feel a lot of excitement and optimism when I see these kinds of reports, as I believe that alongside the eco-movement and a global consciousness shift towards living greener, saving money and reducing consumption, is an evolution in thinking towards creating happier lifestyles and work that fulfills our need for passion and excitement in our lives. These small houses and accompanying small expenditures to get started, create what I believe is this greatest super-benefit: freedom and space to do ‘work’ that we are truly passionate, and to have the lifestyle of our dreams.
There is a ton of information on the internet so be sure to have a look into it
Sustainable Development and Free land in Western Australia is available now. Yes! There are huge tracts of free land in West Australia, in some of the most beautiful and pristine locations, with the benefits of settling this land helping the environment, preserving original tribal rights and culture, and empowering the community in the best possible way with the very urgent environmental, social and housing challenges we all face; if done the right way!
To give a bit of background, I was researching ‘crown land’ in Western Australia, and I came upon this CALM land map of the South West of Western Australia, reprinted here:
With my deep investigation into the law and the legal system in Western Australia and the rest of the country, I have discovered that much of the ‘crown land’ in Australia is at best an unlawful claim, or at least on very precarious and legal ground, compared to the stewardship rights of the original sovereign tribes, or from a common law perspective of respecting the rights of man and of justice. The problem only compounds when there is not one lawful ‘crown’, but many ‘crowns’ that are no more than fictions on a piece of paper, ‘corporate soles’ or other legal entities such as corporations, being fictions such as the ‘crown’ in right of ‘X’ state and so on. Unlimited power and very little or no legal or lawful liability, that is not how the law works. The problem gets even worse when we are seeing the erosion of rights and liberties of land-holders, and a mine-field of legal deception associated with land that anyone with experience in law can attest to. This land is for us to use and enjoy as long as we cause no harm!
The ‘crown’ and its ‘ subjects’ so far have done such a dismal job at managing this land that Australia is rapidly becoming a dust-bowl desert, with massive devastation via topsoil erosion, desertification, die back, species loss, toxic pesticides and agro-chemicals and now the proven threat of GM. We are facing the collapse of not only the environment, but also the collapse of society as we rapidly and steadily move towards tyrannical fascism or catastrophic war, due to the rapid loss of protective rights and freedoms and the current trend. Anyone who has studied history can see the signs and the evidence.
The great news in the face of all of this is that there are some great ways to use and enjoy Crown Land, even if deciding to jump through all the bureaucratic hoops. Crown Land can be leased or other claims can be placed upon these lands, with innovative successes with Crown Land occurring from the uses of Claims of Right in New Zealand and elsewhere, native title or original claims, squatter claims and so on. In the documentation on Crown Land the use of crown land is lawful when authorized by ‘law’ and there are plenty that can verify and back up our use and enjoyment. The reason why many of these methods are working is that once someone is using the land is is quite difficult to stop them from enjoying their common law rights and freedoms, and much of the common law is there to protect our much cherished and protected property rights. We are all stakeholders and part owners of the wealth of our respective countries, and government departments are there to serve their masters, the community
A proposal as one of the best ways to use this ‘unallocated crown land’ and solve the problems of society today is to settle these lands for the creation and promotion of Eco-villages, Sustainable communities and Food-forests. Through this settlement, here are some of the great benefits and supporting references, for the highest good of all in the community:
-Part of the land could be allocated for the free use of original tribes and their members, helping to restore, promote and enhance indigenous culture and lifestyle and traditions
-No trees or natural flora need be removed, simply added to with bush tucker species or manageable edible species as the vital ‘layers’ of the forest are already there, helping to protect and preserve the eco-system and provide habitat
-Allows for rapid, effective and real environmental solutions, and creating ecologically friendly lifestyles
-A low-cost very affordable way for families and members of the community to make a natural move, be sustainable with all power, water and electricity, and create abundance, freedom and a beautiful natural lifestyle for their families
-Helps to preserve forests and natural eco-systems for future generations. Proper stewardship has been historically proven to be of great benefit to the eco-system with the anthropological studies of tribal societies
-The land is for the use and benefit of the people, as long as no major harm is done to the land or to others, and is certainly not for the ‘benefit’ of a fictitious ‘crown’ legal entity, or other fictional corporations which ican tend to sell-out to destructive development, mining or other unnatural uses
-Original tribes have a higher claim to these lands than it being ‘unallocated crown land’ that is unused, and through entering into treaties white peoples can protect their rights and freedoms as well and work towards a happy future for all Australians
-Motivated or interested families or individuals desiring a country/natural lifestyle can make a move right away and start working the land and improving it, instead of being chained by large amounts of debt
-Huge amounts of land were originally settled through ‘squatters rights’ through common law, Australia has a history of this use of crown land
-Sustainable Communities not only solve the environmental problems in the best possible way, but also the problem of tyrannical governments or political objectives, social and moral decay, crime, depression and loss of food quality
-Intentional Communities allow a massive surplus of abundance for all its participants and the environment, providing all immediate survival needs of healthy organic food, clean water, harmonious shelter and real social connection!
To summarize their is no better way to help the environment than by establishing Edible Food Forests and Eco-Villages, and there is no better way to help mankind and each man, woman and child, than in creating Eco-Villages that establish these food forests!
A fantastic case-study of the overwhelming and miraculous abundance and efficiency of working in harmony with nature, is the DVD “Growing a Food Forest” developed by Geoff Lawton and Bill Mollison of the Permaculture Institute of Australia
The DVD proves that with a modest effort of a small group equivalent to a few months worth of work, a massively abundant food forest can be created that can provide all our needs of food, water, timber and refreshment for the soul…. forever! Doesn’t putting in a few months worth of work, and living next to a beautiful lake or river, within a pristine forest and thriving connected community, with an unlimited supply of delicious organic food and fruit beat working at a job you don’t like for forty or so years!
With the growing rumblings of the global financial crisis and the almost unbelievable amounts of wide-scale economic fraud, it is clear to see that Australia’s Real Estate bubble is in a very dangerous and unstable position. If the multi-billion dollar profits of the big banks are not offensive enough, I can guarantee you, once you learn about the highly illegal fraudulent lending practices, you will be furious, just as I was. Since Australia has gone off the honest and lawful common law money system of justs weights and measures, as per the bible and common law, the whole system now seems to be a magical act of double-entry book keeping, fraudulently and illegally backed up by replacing our fundamental heritage of common law and justice, with admiralty and roman-based merchant or mercantile law.
To summarize when a bank in Australia ‘lends’ you a mortgage, they are inventing this money from thin air with a few strokes of the keyboard, and with a few of these strokes:
-You become a debt slave of the bank
-You are enslaving yourself and your family
-You are participating in the highly destructive commercial consumer system
-You are supporting the big corporations that are actively working towards corporate fascism and globalization, and the erosion of all major rights and freedoms
-You are another cog in the wheel of a system that historically has always collapsed, and inevitably will collapse!
I don’t mean to offend anyone folks, but with the large amount of research I have put into history, politics, economics and law, I can see that the writing is on the wall, that really bad things are in store for all Australians if we continue down this path towards destruction and fail to choose a better way
It all starts with choices in how we live in our day to day lifestyle, and the power is with you, right now reading at home, as to whether or not you make a conscious choice to continue an unsatisfying and unsustainable lifestyle, or instead choosing right now to contact our team and register your expression of interest towards our Sustainable Community project, making a decision towards a healthy and abundant future for your family, our planet, and our community
