Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

we finally decided to send our most ambitious and widespread message yet. this is news of one year later.

through the efforts of social activists, people had been slowly learning about the issues surrounding water security. methods for finding, cleaning and distributing have both become better and cheaper through inventions and charities.

one major ROOT of the problem still remained, however. while water quality has improved and the amount of usable water has increased, corrupt corporations and government entities continued to control access to water and sell it at a massive premium for major profits. the world had become angry enough; perhaps the time was finally ripe for a major message to be sent.

i called upon all of the friends and allies that i have in social activism, including numerous charities, the Urgent Evoke network, ethical news outlets and journalists. the community water redundancy centers are in place and had been tested in small groups. all of the water security charities and NPO/NGO had been building money and resources to support this goal as well. what was the message?

a worldwide boycott on water profiteering.

everybody boycotted bottled water of any kind, or anything from a company or organization that bottles water for profit. everybody refused to pay the now exorbitant water bills in the places where the government has either privatized or derives profits from controlling water; these people would be supported by the community owned water centers, as well as gifts of water sources and technologies from charities/NPO/NGO. whistleblowers all over the world flooded the information networks with evidence of crimes and ethical abuses by the guilty entities.

that was one year ago. the safeguards put in place continue to hold fast; community water centers and water charities/NPO/NGO supply free water to the most vulnerable from the generous donations of ethical supporters. the most egregious and unethical organizations have already fallen. the more intelligent companies have completely changed their strategies and structure to either stop bottling water or start providing it for free or at a low cost in a non-profit branch.

change is slow. yet, one year already brought so much. lets see how things are in another 10 years.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle.

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
