Okay…times suck, but what can any of us DO?

I keep reading comments along these lines (and it’s very rational!) Less talk, more action!

This is one thing I just did, and maybe it will inspire you. 

I created a new facebook group (because most people still congregate there) called _______ County, _______ Skills Swap

I want to invite all individuals, families, groups, etc within and around ________ County, _________, to begin to think about skills they have that could benefit others if the supplies run out, if the electricity gets shut off, if the water gets turned off, etc. As a founded community of self-sustenance, let’s turn these wisdoms into a great pool for all to draw from – the ones who have no idea how to grow food may know very well how to heal a body or to put out a fire, etc. Everyone, if they really dig down deep and consider, has something they can share to make us all stronger and less vulnerable.

We all feel that bad times are coming (or at least that things are “off”) so I’m asking for us to not wait until the truly bad is upon us, but to act now.

We can:

  • Get to know each other
  • Share skills, trades, knowledge, wisdom and all that those things entail
  • Build strong community networks that can stand against hard times
  • Work together as human beings and ignore the constructed divides that make neighbors strangers – this is a newer phenomenon, now that we all rely on big businesses to meet our needs and not on those we live amongst. Let’s cease that construct.

This area does community charity like none I’ve witnessed so far (maybe it’s just online, so I see it more easily) but I’d like for us all to start to think along the lines of returning to a trade/barter system. When you have to bow in order to buy or sell (or even to work or travel) then it may be very welcome for those who refuse to have a haven where they may still live and enjoy community and sharing and hope.

Please feel free to begin sharing any thoughts, concerns, ideas you may have. At some point, if enough show interest, I will look for a venue to host in-person events. Think (local city) Plant Swap, but for all the lovely, exotic, wonderful, helpful people we know we live amongst.

Be very well, very blessed, and hope to hear from you all soon!

What do you think?

Good idea! I’m always collecting barter items and survival gear. Have to create a Facebook page though, haven’t been on there since getting banned a couple years ago haha

It’s has a very good infrastructure for groups. I’ve had very successful groups on there a few years ago,mainly meme groups directed to the woke idiots so got banned plenty of times. This last time though I chose not to go back as I would build it up for nothing…I don’t think they will ban a group like the one you’re doing so it should be good.

This is a gutsy idea / post that did get me thinking. But like delete I dumped fb – 3 years ago. There was a few reasons but a big one is all the mal/spyware, cookies, and downloads fill up your device.
I love your inspiration!!

I personnaly hate FB, i see it as lucifers den, I left it many years ago.
In FB once your group reaches a popularity threshold, if the content is interesting, then FB moderators will literally take control over the group, and please do not think you can beat them in their world, they don’t care about any rational, they can do whatever they want, just read the terms and conditions.
There are many good alternatives, What about reddit? Gab?
