Change starts with us - Blog — Every action we take defines the future we want to build. So help us define it right here on sites like Sharebay. Every sharing transaction is another win for the planet, through building community connections and acting as good stewards of finite resources for the environment to reduce waste, and more of our things ending up in landfills. Every monetary transaction is another vote for more of the same: - More politics and politicians that doesn't care about us - More companies that pretend to care but just want your money and don't really care about us - More wars and territorial disputes - More loneliness and isolation in a world where people have never felt more isolated So change starts with us..

Why we use transaction recordings - blog [No-Reply Listing] — In light of popular sharing website helpfulpeeps now shutting down and further improvements recently made to Sharebay: The new 5 star rating system: https://www.sharebay.org/stories/new-five-star-review-system The new value metric: https://www.sharebay.org/stories/introducing-the-new-value-metric This one i felt was an important point to write about. Why a lot of the unsuccessful alternative economic ideas and sharing websites fail to grow and stay afloat (or at least successfully demonstrate growth was made) is because they don't keep a recording of what happened between participating parties when something was shared. There is an underlying reason as to why capitalism and traditional trading has been so successful - a transaction is always there, and while the meaning behind the transaction isn't always recorded (especially if it was a physical monetary transaction), a transaction still took place thus keeping score. The money received as a tool to now buy what you want provides a method to achieve an end - And that is the proven to work language of capitalism. If you don't believe me, all you have to do is check your online bank account ledger of where your money went to, or your ever decreasing savings in your local piggy bank for proof. 🐖🪙😉 All societies that work well (or at least for the most part) and continue to build forward, engage in economic transactions. They provide a kind of glue that keeps that society going and act like an underlying language to form how your society works, whether it be it's morals, it's rules or it's politics to follow, and to keep track of what happened if things weren't performing so optimally, or to a desired standard of the stewards of that societies economy and it's overall operation. A good example of this might be the movie Passengers. Anyone he's seen Passengers will remember a sequence where Laurence Fishburne's character attempts to understand why the ship failed, and the crew was beginning to wake up early from their pods as the rest of them slept travelling through space. The movie demonstrated this through a tracking mechanism built into the ship displayed holographically so you could see when the problems started and it's details. Knowing what happened then allows you to make decisions. If things are going well, there may be no need to act. If things aren't, the recordings of what went wrong and when guide your next decisions, and so thus build trust that what you're doing between all parties involved is either working out or not. There is no way that humans can store that much information of what happened and forever remember it all inside our meagre monkey brains 🐒🐵, so we use external tools to help us. To track where things have gone, and to help us to understand where we might be going. Traditionally that's been through money and trading accounting, but as many here are increasingly learning, money and trade combine together to create capitalism which creates zero sum game simulations where there is always a winner and a loser, thus conditioning people into scarcity based (i have to lose or compete against my fellow human in order to gain) type thinking. So the difference between this and what were doing on sites like Sharebay is, we are providing that glue i alluded to earlier. But instead of using it for monetary transactions, we are now accounting for sharing one's between people, essentially capturing the potential trust that was built between giver and receiver - And to remind us of this through the recording kept. And now with ideas like Sharebay's new review system, we can capture that trust further by the transaction being extended through feedback from those involved in the transaction, and improve on what went wrong for future transactions. Enjoy your day, enjoy Sharebay's new features, i hope you learned something and thank you for reading!

Zeitgeist Commune Housing (Accommodation/Meeting) — Zeitgeist Commune Housing is now officially open, please re-read the first post (on fb group) if you want to use the facility. https://www.facebook.com/groups/thezeitgeistmovementmalaysia/permalink/226029625626619/ The purpose of Zeitgeist Commune Housing - A TZM Chapter having an offline place for meeting is the most basic steps need to accomplish first - Online meeting mostly nothing can be achieved, need to have real people show up and face to face - Free accommodation is provided for members only, both short and long term accepted - Both local and international members accepted I often get the question is there any requirement members need to do after moved in? - at the moment none, members allowed to use it as holiday accommodation - there is no time-limit how long members can use the facility, i have no problem give access to members for next 10-20 years - this project is about sharing property space - we are also listed on sharebay.org - https://www.sharebay.org/listing?id=1489 - Capitalism will not be able to provide people with free accommodation, capitalism & economy works because it deprived people from necessities, non-profit org must intervene if society wants to achieve world beyond war, poverty & politics. - Moving from primitive (self-based capitalism) to more civilized/advanced & sharing society - As a transition project, moving towards post scarcity model - The new human rights movement What are the approximate cost to live in forest city? - the facility is paid off, no loan, no debt. - monthly maintenance fee charged by building management RM200 plus a month (US$48.53) - utilities/electricity/water RM100 plus a month (US$24.27) - the calculation example above is for one individual, cost will be lowered for more resident due to fees divided equally among all - pay your own food, varies on individual from RM500-700 a month (US$121.33-US$169.86) How much is the short-term living cost? Short term living is not available until i have found someone willing to be permanent resident first. Afterward, short term living is available ranging from daily, weekly, or monthly. Members can book, re-use the facility anytime they want, it is first come first serve basis. Fixed cost at RM10 (US$2.43) per day for each individual, this is a non-profit model, members pay for electricity & water only, and any extra will be saved for any future repairs/maintenance. If you stay longer than 6 months and above, it is cheaper, and will be based on the actual fees like calculated example above, not RM10 per day. What about living in self-sustainable/moneyless rbe city? Assuming you had a land with self generated electricity and water, you still need to spend your personal time growing own food/garden, cooking own meal, if want to eat meat need to slaughter chicken/fish/cow, spending lots of time at kitchen. This may result not much difference with any trade-based society, although you only work for yourself, what happened once you getting old? There are merits in creating self-resilient community like protect environment, but intentional community also produce extra or having co-op business that sell something at the open market in exchange for money. Thus, there are not completely moneyless, self-sufficient electricity/water infrastructure may become old and you may need money to repair. TZM is advocating basic necessities can be provided by fully implement today's automation technology, therefore nobody need to be exploited nor putting price tag on necessities. We are still far away from achieve that, therefore at this point of time, i only can see tradeless/sharing property space is a viable transition project from individual standpoint, after we had enough resident i will start collecting donation to buy a second property and so forth, until all the activist had free accommodation before open to public. Also as an example of moneyless/rbe society. What kind of members allowed to stay and fully use the facility? you already know how things are in relation to how you feel they should be you've discovered yourself want to take action you've find a means to implement action/spread awareness either individually or within a group you are unsettled by the constant societal pressures of the status quo and the direction society is going you've educate yourself on the current systems in place as well as research possible solutions If you think you've fullfilled the criteria, message me. https://www.facebook.com/zeitgeistmalaysia Overview https://youtu.be/k13_VeelEBw https://youtu.be/fobEx3KAj88 https://youtu.be/24wDfZXLC_Y living room https://youtu.be/5zAtxtbc_70 https://youtu.be/kzNxdxYyjWc https://youtu.be/aVWdBfn8HkU dining table https://youtu.be/rfAzWtUZxgA master bedroom https://youtu.be/3lrJZpart3o https://youtu.be/xQzl-65M4AY https://youtu.be/UrjVyaobv0U https://youtu.be/WIHAGTBp_ZQ room 1 https://youtu.be/FmuCYZFTetI https://youtu.be/RafcokkfOy8 room 2 https://youtu.be/-42hd4Q7WFg *room 1 & 2 still missing a bed loft, not done yet, but usable. bathroom/toilet https://youtu.be/RWFtr3XmUzA
