A crash course in changing the world.

The New Money

"They're currency because they're rare, and they're useful. They're currency because anywhere you go, they equal food."

Traditional money— bills, coins, bank accounts— were a hallmark of the Falling. Their steady drop in value came to shadow the tale of a culture that lost its worth. And when the dust settled, a new form of primate came to roam this earth. One not so fascinated by numbers on paper, a race unheld captive by the trinkets of Before.

Food, water, knowledge— these are the assets of independence, these are the money of today. What use have coins now? And inky morsels of paper? More benefit to be had of a bottlecap and a clean scrap of looseleaf.

Even gold has lost most appeal. What can it do? How can it help me survive?

And so, in this world lacking network, a new currency has taken root: Seeds.

Seeds are plants. They are food, materials, assistants. They are gardens, forests and jungles. Seeds become ecosystems. They find, clean and store water. They attract animals, insects and microbes. They freshen our air and heal our tattered atmosphere. Plants equal life. They mean we get to go on.

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible.

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
