Here is something we all need to do:
(Alexander Oey) traveled by the United States and filmed communities take matters into their own hands. Of the 50 U.S. states there are 46 nearly bankrupt.
Over 13 million Americans are unemployed. More than 49 million people live below the poverty line. The national debt ceiling was recently raised to 14 trillion dollar.Sinds the last financial crisis, confidence in the federal government is lower than ever. In Great Barrington, Massachusetts residents have its own currency, the Birch Hare, to be less dependent on the dollar.
In Colorado Springs, the local population have the right to vote against tax increases and it relies entirely on the private sector.
In Austin, Texas provides radio host Alex Jones recently for its own electricity and water supply.
In Sandpoint, Idaho is the American dream under the inspired leadership of a Buddhist mayor exchanged for sustainable solutions. All these initiatives are a way to create a better life in a time of great uncertainty.
People seek their own Utopia outside the financial system and government. Are these communities the right path? They have found effective alternatives, while governments worldwide are heading to bankruptcy?
