Puyallup, Washington
via Ubuntu - United States - Pacific Northwest
Im looking to actually join and move into an alternative living community based on the barter system. It seems like this group has the same beliefs...but would I be correct to say that there is no physical location as of yet? Hoping for a little clarification. Thankyou-

Alexa, I like your enthusiasm! It would be cool to just move into an UBUNTU community. This is the best place to find one but, I don't think there is an address yet. I would encourage you to get the book and learn more about the movement. On page 112 it talks about the 5 point mantra. 1. No money 2. No barter 3. No trade 4. No value attached to anything which makes it more valuable than anything else - because all of our contributions have to be respected and accepted as equally valuable and 5. Everyone contributes their natural talents or acquired skills for the greater benefit of all in their community.

Barter systems have existed and thrived in the past but eventually, the person with more to barter has the advantage. In UBUNTU its more like an extended family reunion. One person brings all the steaks and chicken while someone else brings a pie or some paper plates. There is no exchange of money to make it even. Everyone is contributing generously
and everyone is receiving with gratitude.

I have read the book and watching many videos about Ubuntu but not sure how to make one happen if you don't know anyone or have your own land??

Everyone keeps talking about how good it is, but not how to start one by yourself? It would be nice to have those answers! I would appreciate your comments....! Have a great day!

Hi, Honeybee63! Sounds like you're wanting to find out how to get started. I live in Oregon and I contacted people through this website who are within a hundred miles or so from me. Some didn't respond, but others did and we kind of went from there. Keeping in touch with others who are interested is critical to being successful! Michael Tellinger and Michael Sunseri (U.S. Representative) have both said that step # 1 is to read as much of the literature on the site, watch the videos, and read Tellinger's "Ubuntu Contributionism, A Blueprint For Human Prosperity" book. It's important to have a solid foundation and understanding of the Ubuntu history and philosophy before trying to move ahead. It's up to each of us to do the preliminary footwork. So please take those steps first, and don't give up!!

Hi Honeybee and all, one of the very first steps that must be accomplished is : Registration of the USA UBUNTU non-profit and political PARTY - so that we can develop a plan for the USA elections. This is in the works now. It is important for various reasons-one of the most important is for protection of all of us from the bankers/controllers. The workshop MT did on April 13, he goes into great detail about this. While this step is happening educate yourself & others & do what you can locally.

I was also on the call for the April 13th workshop. It was very good and now I just need to finish reading the book. My plan is to set up a meetup group here in Tucson. I'm considering moving up to the NW, however, if there is a stronger movement there.

Wow Eileen, talk about being committed to something. You'd move to be able to get more involved in this movement. That is great!

I honestly feel like this type of thing is like a "gumbo" pot approach. Seems ppl are eager & ready to transition but are not sure how to make the jump. It's like, if someone with land believes in this.... Then start the pot! Everyone will come with their ingredients. So many online students, vets with skills and ppl that just need a year or two off to regroup. What else do we need? Tents, fishing poles, snacks? What? Nothing starts out grand or great. Just a group of dedicated people who want to be free from the cycle. Well I don't have the "pot" but I know how to stir it & keep it spicy! Looking forward to when this becomes a reality. 🌹
