No one has done anything even remotely like what I'm talking about. It's not about breaking free of society and going your own way. It's about creating a workable and unifying alternate society with a close relationship to the existing world society.

It wouldn't be a society for people going: "Oh, everything has been done before - nothing can ever change - and nothing ever will."

Obviously, it will take a different kind of people to start out.

But it takes a lot more than a tiny tiny minority to change the world, particularly if that minority doesn't have any money.
Most of the significant changes in this world has happened because of individuals - and it has absolutely nothing to do with money. Money is a symbol of value - and it has no value unless we agree that it does.

By creating a society based on resources - we won't need money for anything. We can start out by trading resources for resources - something which the current society would be more than willing to do, if the resources were desirable.

But, this could never happen unless the current world society agreed to give up something for the potential of the future. It wouldn't be a rebellion against the world - it would be a mutually beneficial experiment created by the civilised parts of the modern world. It would take many, many years of preparation, planning and research.
